Save to favouritesPrintMailFinca es CastellThis finca seems to have grown organically over its 900 years. At its heart is an ancient almazara (olive press) where the fruits of this 750-acre estate were pressed into oil; now it’s a rustic barn where homegrown dinners are laid out on trestle tables. Around it lies a warren of [r:ES032:14 cosy rooms], whose bones (500-year-old ceiling beams, metre-thick stone walls) are visible beneath white plaster and modern bathrooms. Outside, cobbled patios are festooned with ancient vines, a stone bench sits in the shade of a carob tree, and among the terraced olive groves you’ll find a pool catching the morning sun. It sits at the foot of the craggy Tramuntana mountains, above the tiny hamlet of Binibona – an idyllic spot, and the result of a long search by Paola and James. It took all his negotiation skills (he's a former media consultant) and her considerable energies (she’s from a dynamic Italian-English family in Kenya) to secure a 10-year lease. But they did, and immediately started transforming it into the kind of stylish rustic retreat, which their friends would flock to. The rest is history - 9 centuries of it, no less.
