Nature lovers will find a special place in Majorca: the natural reserve of Mondragó is an uncontaminated place, which expands from the country to the seaside. The natural park faces the Mediterranean and offers a wide variety of landscapes: sand and stones alternate in the beaches, while pine and olive trees dominate the view together with the brackish waters around ses Fonts de n’Alis and the pond of s’Amarador.
Walking through the park of Mondragó feels like going back in time, retracing the steps of the ancient inhabitants of the island. Here, in a space that covers more than 750 hectares, visitors can also admire the constructions in “pedra en seco”: cabins, towers and ancient little ports.
In the natural park of Mondragò, trekking lovers can choose between the route of mirador de sa Font de n’Alis, the one of s’Amarador, the one of sa punta de ses Gatoves or the one de sa Guàrdia d’en Garrot. The park is also accessible to people with reduced mobility. The natural reserve can be reached by sea, as boats connect the ports of Cala D’Or and Portopetro to Cala Mondragò and S’Amarador.
Just a few kilometers away from this enchanted place visitors can find the Hotel rural Sa Galera: the perfect spot to find quiet and wellbeing during a stay on the island. The hotel is located in Ca’s Concos, only 10 minutes away from Santanyí. In the estate hosts will find a beautiful garden with a swimming pool, surrounded by more than 500 almond trees and several olive and carob trees.
The Bonet-Company family has owned this Majorcan estate since 1850, and has personally restored the manor coming up with 20 rooms while keeping the original framework. Each room is different, but all are decorated according to, adjusted with a modern touch. The history of Sa Galera is very interesting as it was one of the seven fiefs of Majorca at the time when King James I conquered the island.
Its walls hosted the most valiant knights, and still today one of the most renowned thoroughbred black mane Majorcan horses is bred here. The organic products from the estate’s vegetable garden restock the hotel’s restaurant, where local and natural dishes are served, in perfect harmony with the healthy and relaxing lifestyle of this place, that guests can enjoy at every time of day.
