If you want to STOP THE WORLD & GET OFF, finca Son Viguet is your stop.

There are villas & then there is Son Viguet.

Your Mallorca Experience begins when Son Viguet, this Finca (farmhouse) steeped in history was built in 1620 the same year the Mayflower set sail from Plymouth England to transport the first Pilgrims to the New World. Well that is when it first appeared on Mallorca’s oldest maps.
Originally a shepherd’s hut on a col in the mountains, this pile of rock walls evolved into a majestic 3700 square foot finca (400 sq meter- farmhouse) with wings, a pool and its own water source on a col 250 meters above sea level.
Sometime over its history the stone hut became an olive press & grain mill for farmers far and wide. The surrounding pine forests were once terraced olive and almond orchards some of which still remain. This Finca, perfectly poised on a col between two valley’s, was strategically located for farmer’s to bring their harvest for pressing into olive oil & flour. Now its strategically located for our guests to see the whole southwest corner of the island & the island of Ibiza on the horizon.
In 1973 the current owner and his parents found the ruin after it had been abandoned 50 years earlier during the Spanish Civil War when the communists where killed or exiled by the fascist regime of the day. It took 10 years of pain staking restoration during summer holidays to restore Son Viguet just to become liveable. But another 30 years polishing this diamond in the rough revealed its current authentic splendour.
TODAY as you enter the gate, you are welcomed by a cactus garden, cascading bougainvilleas, climbing roses, oleander, lemon, fig & pomegranate trees, and the most spectacular vistas of the Mediterranean Sea, the Traumuntana mountains to the north and the Andratx Valley & Mediterranean Sea to the south.
Recently designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site, the vistas of the Traumuntana mountains, at this 800 feet elevation are breathtaking. You will be tempted to linger in the driveway for 6 + cars and enjoy the smells of flower blossoms and views before entering the gate. The paved driveway to this exclusive retreat is 300 meter long, way off the country road providing privacy and tranquility.
INSIDE there are 8 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a fully equipped country kitchen with modern appliances perfect for group cooking (or the house chef & caterers). Both the living & dining rooms serve as the centre of the home and both rooms have open wood fireplaces supplied by ample wood fuel. And of course there is wi-fi internet access throughout, Flat Screen with Apple TV device to watch movies, and a library of English books to choose from. The owner is a prolific reader.
The formal dining (also the front entrance hall) & living rooms and kitchen are divided by 3-foot thick walls with arched passage ways between all three principle rooms.
The private Olive Press wing enjoys its own living room with fireplace, 4 piece bathroom. nursery and kitchenette.
The equally private Pool Apartment wing enjoys is own kitchen and 4 piece bathroom. And the pool terrace is equipped with an outdoor hot & cold shower to.
The main structure between the Olive Suite Wing & the Pool Apartment is the original residence of Señor Viguet and his family. It has four double bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom on the ground floor that walks-out on to the south terrace.

Owner info

Re-Established 1973

About the owner: My Canadian parents bought this farmhouse as a retirement home in 1973 when I was a 15 year old boy and we began renovation every summer that lasted 10 years. My father was a Canadian diplomat with a dream to retire in the Mediterrean. The Finca (farmhouse) was a complete ruin that was abandoned during the Spanish Civil War in 1939. They were a perfect match for each other. My father passed away peacefully in his heaven on earth in 2004 and my mother continued living there alone until she was 80 years old. In 2010 she asked me to take over management of Son Viguet while she returned to Canada to live near my home where she is today. Since 2010 the Finca has undergone another extensive modernization to bring everything up to today’s standards. Hence it has been my “home” for more than 40 years. I now share with my wife, Lucie and our two adult daughters Pascale & Fabienne. We love sharing this magnificent property with friends and family from all over the world. Ordinary working people like us don’t usually own such spectacular properties such as this. We thank you for being our friends and helping us hang on to my parents dream home which is now our dream home. Today I have extended family all over the world and we call Mallorca our home base for family reunions.

Why the Owner Chose Andratx, Balearic Islands, Spain:
My Parents fell in love with the island of Mallorca in the early 70s. It was their retirement home, hence my home. In 1997 I also fell in love with the cycling, hiking & sailing that Mallorca has to offer and all my Canadian friends want to visit. So now it is used for reunions with family, friends & winter training camps for cyclists. We have also had several yoga retreats come together on the mountain, where we can spoil guests with spa treatments.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Located in the foothills of Tramuntana mountain, this property has direct access to the best hiking trails on the island and the best cycling roads in Europe. Only 6 kms away there is a superb 18-hole golf course as well as a tennis club. Professional cycling teams from all over the world spend three months of the winter training on the roads that pass our driveway. And with the beaches so close by I use the whole island as a training ground for Ironman triathlon competitions. But of course the Andratx valley has so much more to enjoy, such as the finest vineyard on the island very close by and remarkable restaurants in the nearby villages of Es Capedella and Calvia. And with Palma only 25 minutes away by car, the shopping and dining experiences are a bonanza.
