This is the kind of place that invites you to harvest organic oranges from the orchard, use the wood from the pruned fruit trees to fuel the fireplace, and grill with your family and friends on the outdoor BBQ. Later, you can meet up to watch a pastel-hued sunset from the rooftop. Do you feel like family yet?
A luxurious and sustainability-minded villa in Llucmajor, Mallorca, Sa Font Blava is a stylish Mediterranean home that was built with love by the family that still runs it. Originally, the creation of the family’s grandfather, it ended up being the place where all of the children grew up, taking part in its evolution, chiseling it into the precious jewel it is today.
In step with today’s times, the owners are committed to having zero impact to the environment and will supply 100% green energy by 2022. A highlight of their efforts, the finca is built toward the south, with 14 hours of guaranteed sunlight. When light is (scarcely) needed, energy-saving bulbs and timers take over. There are rainwater, irrigation and compost programs, and firewood created by tree pruning is reborn into homemade bags.
Imbued with the spirit of the familial bond, Sa Font Blava is the perfect home base from which to explore Mallorca’s beaches, coves, and enchanting villages, all while being conscious of your footprint.
Conversely, with its pool, sun, and prime siesta spots, you may not want to leave home at all.
