For those who love Majorca, the northern part is truly charming. With its uncontaminated nature, and the different shades of blue and green fading into the horizon, it is the ideal place to take a step back to simple and truly profound values.
The inland and its countryside are perfect to experience the island’s life with authenticity and in close contact with nature.
Majorca is often associated to summer tourism, with images of its sea and beaches. However, Majorca is much more than that. The countryside and its vineyards, olive, almond and fig trees, stand as a harmonious mixture of unique shapes and smells.
Is it possible to fully experience this rural reality without giving up the comfort of a nice hotel?
The answer is yes, and you can do it staying in a “hotel rural”. Near Sierra de Tramuntana, in the town of Campanet, you can find the four-star superior Eco Hotel Rural & Spa Monnaber Nou, where this dream turns into reality.
Several features of the hotel will make your stay really special. First of all, most of the food served to the guests is produced within the 125 hectares of land surrounding the hotel: olive oil, lamb, suckling pig and a wide variety of fruits and vegetables (Finca certificada en Agricultura ecologica). This is topped by a special care in the preparation of meals; which are all prepared following the Majorcan tradition, and can be enjoyed from the terrace of the hotel’s restaurant, Es Mirador.
The architectural structure of the hotel will make your stay here even more unique, with its exclusive mansions of different sizes but equal elegance, coziness and attention to details.
The hotel also offers a luxurious Spa with additional services, which are personalized to satisfy the preferences of each guest.
The surroundings are also very inviting. With the mountains on one side and the sea on the other, guests can enjoy excursions in the Sierra de Tramuntana for different skill levels or cycling both on flat and steeper tracks. For those who enjoy horseback riding, the Eco Hotel Rural & Spa Monnaber Nou offers its own horses, while tennis enthusiasts can use the hotel’s tennis courts, also available for guests.
Shouldn’t be missed: a walk trough the narrow streets of the town of Campanet, where you can admire the ancient Majorcan buildings, the neo-Gothic parochial church built in the XVIII century, and the San Miquel hermitage dating from 1248. You also should not miss a visit to the Coves de Campanet: 16 000 m3 of caves, located at 50 m underground on average, with stalactites and stalagmites. Finally, for those who still want to see more, during days of heavy rain Majorca offers an incredible geological phenomenon to its visitors: the Fonts Ufanes, with their natural show of gushing springs.
