Els Comellars (Villa Santanyi)

Mediterranean minimalism: A 106 meter long stone path leads to Villa Santanyi which is located in an almond grove with sea and mountain views in the south of Majorca. The strict geometric construction clearly sets itself apart from the landscape but nevertheless almost merges with the environment due to its earth-toned plaster. The main façade appears castle-like with windowless, two-story high walls. An only 83 cm narrow gap leads into a large courtyard, which is adjoined by the living spaces on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs. The minimalist rooms exude a contemplative, almost monastic atmosphere. Small windows frame the view of the landscape and create a play of light and shadow. At the backside a terrace and a 30-meter infinity pool connect the house with the landscape.

The house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Another bedroom (with a bathroom and outdoor shower) is located in a separate guest house beneath the pool. Children are welcome: a cot, changing table and high chair are available. There is a sandbox in the garden and the pool has a children’s area separated by a wall. A large barbecue for garden parties is at your disposal.

Es kommen grosse Gefühle hoch, wenn wir an unseren Aufenthalt in diesem ausserordentlichen Kunstwerk denken.

Die Villa zieht einen in den Bann. Die Stille ist betörend, man bewohnt „HEILIGE HALLEN“ und spürt das Besondere. Hier waren Visionäre am Werk.

„Die Seele kann nur durch die Sinne gefunden, die Sinne werden nur durch die Seele genesen.“ Dieses Zitat von Oskar Wild scheint uns passend.

Es ist ein Geschenk, wenn man dieses Objekt und dessen schlichte Schönheit erleben darf.

Wir danken!

Eins meiner Lieblingshäuser – gaaaaanz große ARCHITEKTUR ! Ein Traum, einmal darin wohnen zu können – Mein ganz großer Urlaubsfavorit.
Ich hoffe nur, dass durch die Vermietung an “Touristen” diese hochwertige BAUKUNST nicht Leiden nimmt (wie des Öfteren leider schon bemerkt)

Dieses Haus habe ich schon immer geliebt.

Ich kenne es aus diversen Publikationen und fand es immer schon phantastisch. Die Option dieses einzigartige Objekt nun mieten zu können ist ein Traum, den ich hoffentlich einmal verwirklichen kann.
