King Louis XIV of France decreed that only oranges from the Sóller valley should be allowed in the Palace of Versailles. Julius Caesar insisted he would only eat honey produced by the bees of Sóller. Today, these same oranges and special honey are still being produced in the magnificent fruit groves only minutes away from La Jacaranda.
The house has stunning views toward the magnificent Tramuntana mountain range which forms the backbone of the North West coast of Mallorca and is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. This region is considered the most beautiful part of the island and is far removed from the busy tourist areas of the South and East coasts. Walkers will enjoy the many excellent mountain trails, particularly the dry stone wall Route 221 with stunning views of the coastline and rural countryside. Golfers have more than 20 excellent courses from which to choose, the nearest being a 20 minute drive away. Riding schools, tennis courts, sea sports of all description, boat charters, fishing and scuba diving are all available locally.
La Jacaranda is a very comfortable and deliberately understated house on two levels. It is ideally suited for a summer holiday for up to 10 people, a winter break or a home/office for a longer stay, perhaps to avoid a Northern European winter. The house has air-conditioning, central heating and parquet floors throughout, making it cool in summer and warm in winter. The large living room has an open fireplace and vast windows with panoramic views towards the Tramuntana mountains and opens onto a covered terrace ideal for dining or relaxing.
Guests can enjoy complete privacy as there are many terraces and intimate sitting areas, all of which enjoy peaceful and spectacular views. The mature garden has oleanders and olive, carob, fig and fir trees.
La Jacaranda is a very special bolt-hole for those looking for a home from home in lovely surroundings and yet only a short flight away from most major European airports.
