The Dream about a Majorcan Finca with Vineyards and Olive Plantations

Ref. nr. MV005 – Large rural renovated house with beautiful gardens and pool in Búger
This is a project from 2018 where we will see the results by the end of the summer – the green lines of the vineyard will show. The first step was to deforest and recover the terraces that the pine forest had invaded. Then the land was prepared and vineyards were planted. Finally, the structure and a good irrigation system were installed. Here Garnacha and Sauvignon Blanc are planted.

For some years now, the wine industry in Mallorca has been progressing successfully. The popularity of Majorcan wine is increasing around the world.

Have you ever thought of the idea to have your own vineyard and produce your own wine? Maybe create an exclusive bodega where to enjoy wine tastings and other events? Now this dream could become true! Mallorcaresidencia has a great collaboration with wine experts. They will be pleased to help you to start up your project and assist you with anything you might need.

Our collaborator is a young company with Majorcan roots in a family company with a long history in the development and production of wine and extra virgin olive oil. This Majorcan wine expert is dedicated to the recovery and maintenance of vineyards and olive plantations. They offer service development, from the planting and maintenance of vineyards and olive trees, to the creation , maintenance and promotion of exclusive wineries/bodegas and oil mills for the production of extra virgin oil from Mallorca.

 

Ref. nr. MV003 – Finca with 15 Ha vineyards in Sineu
This is another recovery project of vine terraces with spectacular views over Esporles.

They do not use genetically engineered varieties, and they do promote local varieties to obtain soft and natural wines. When it comes to the oil production, the harvest is carried out manually and only mechanical procedures are used.

With extensive experience in local farming, these experts offer advice on organic farming, and are always determine on the care taking of the environment and Majorcan traditions. They are counting on all the necessary elements to carry out all projects with the maximum guarantee: agricultural engineers, laboratory for organic analysis, excavation and construction company, tractors for working the land and maintenance equipment, branding and marketing advisors, sales contacts.

At Mallorcaresidencia we promote several fincas for sale throughout the island, with production and bodegas in different points of evolution. If you dream of undertaking a project of organic farming, wine- and / or oil production, here you will find the answer to your dream, with a complete pre-and after-sales service. We are very happy to present this new collaboration, since it is a unique project with unique mansions and farms on the island.

Assaona: New Beach Club in Portixol, Palma

August’s restaurant-tip is the newly opened gastro beach club Assaona, at the end of Paseo Marítimo, just next to the charming Port of Portixol in Palma.

The word Assaona comes from the Catalan verb assaonar, which means to season. To season something is to make it just right, to allow it to mature, to add flavour using the specific required ingredients.

At Assaona you can delight in front of the sea enjoying the very best of the Mediterranean ingredients. The fresh meals are elaborated with the best local products from sea and land, and tradition and modern are fused in a unique taste experience. Who could resist to a sashimi, ceviche or a fish and sea food platter in front of the sea? Creative drinks and desserts, the breakfasts, and the special Children’s menu are also to be discovered.

This is an urban gastro club and one of the few beach clubs that will be open year around. The Assaona team, run by a Majorcan company, has chosen natural colors and noble materials to respect and resonate with the environment. This results in a stylish and Mediterranean design, which is as important as the determination for local and fresh products, all to offer a unique urban beach gastro experience in one of the most popular areas of Palma. A stroll along the beach of Can Pere Antoni is delightful at any time of the year, and with a destination like Assaona, the walk will be even more inspiring.

Portixol is reached by a short walk from Palma’s old town (along the Marítimo and the sea promenade) and this oasis in front of the sea may easily become a meeting point to enjoy beach life any season of the year.

Assaona opening hours: 09-01:00, kitchen opens: 12:30-22:30

Vintage Posters in New Shop in Palma

Recently we have decorated our office in Santa Catalina with a touch of nostalgic flair; two vintage posters from a very special shop in Palma. We definitely recommend a visit to this retro-shop in the old town where you can find exclusive travel posters and post cards from the Balearic Islands with the groovy colorful signature from the 60’s.

Founded in Galle Fort, Sri Lanka in 2011, Stick No Bills™ is the number one destination for vintage poster art and retro poster design celebrating the profound beauty, history and culture of Ceylon and Iberia. 

Based between their Iberia flagship gallery in Palma De Mallorca and their Ceylon flagship gallery in Galle Fort, Stick No Bills digitally re-master, design, print, frame and ship limited edition travel posters and postcards using the world’s finest inks and paper. 

 

A Tale of Two Islands

Two different islands, both with a remarkable beauty host this concept shop that cares for an ethical and solidary impress on each art piece.

Although founded 7 years ago in Sri Lanka, Stick No Bills founders Meg Gage Williams and Phillip Baber felt the calling to expand the business and move to the Mediterranean along with their young family, transporting the Stick No Bills concept from one richly historical island of profound beauty to another – Mallorca was the obvious choice. 

Faith Anciano who runs the shop in Palma tells us how the project since it started believes in giving back. Proceeds from all sales here in Mallorca go to Medicos sin Fronteras. They are also founding members of Greener Galle and sponsors of the Sri Lankan Wildlife Conservation Society and the Galle Heritage Foundation. When you buy the posters you help fund these important eco, humanitarian, archaeological and conservational initiatives.

This mark is a guarantee that the poster(s) you purchase are genuine Stick No Bills™ prints and that the true owners of copyright have been paid.

SUP Yoga in Mallorca

During the last years, the practice of Stand Up Paddle and also of SUP Yoga has become more and more popular on Mallorca. There are several different spots on the island where you have the possibility to rent a board to discover balance on your own in the water, or join a guided excursion, or why not, a SUP yoga class. In this article, we will shortly explain what SUP yoga is and where on the island you can have a try.  

Originating from India, yoga is a tradition built up during many thousands of years, but didn’t gain strength in the Western world before the XX century. June 21 is International Yoga Day, a day of celebrating the union between all beings, recognising the benefits that the yoga practice provides, on both a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level; individually and universally.  

SUP (Stand Up Paddle) started in Hawai in the forties, but, just like yoga, it has its roots thousands of years ago. In several cultures in the world, canoes or a stand up board have been used for transportation or hunting. In Hawai, surf, paddle surf and yoga were (and are) all very popular practices and people started to fuse SUP with yoga, creating a unique practice experimenting yoga postures on the board in the sea. Not so many years ago SUP yoga arrived to Europe, and here on Mallorca we are lucky to enjoy a good and stable climate throughout the year, which makes the SUP yoga season long and each year more and more practitioners are joining.

Where can you practice SUP yoga on Mallorca?

Below we list some of the places where you can experience a SUP yoga class on the island:

Soller SUP – Port de Soller

El Niño Surf center – Playa de Palma

La Mosca Cub de Surf – Palma de Mallorca

Be Happy Yoga Mallorca – Pollensa

 

What are the benefits?

The fusion between paddle board and yoga offers a unique practice with several benefits: balance, flexibility, alignment and strength, just to mention a few of them. You don’t at all have to be sporty or experienced in yoga to join; everyone can enjoy a class, where you are invited to practice mindfulness in different exercises and postures, standing, seated, on all fours or lying down. The human body is constituted of more than 70% water. Bringing awareness to that fact, and play with this special connection with the water, the flow, the movement, brings us to the reflection about what is moving in life and within each one of us.

What can you expect from a SUP yoga class?

To enjoy sea and nature, strengthen the core and your whole body, delight in moments of play and moments of relaxation. Let go and allow yourself to experience this special present moment with mindfulness, and discover your body and your balance in relationship with the water.
