Owners have wanted to honor the spirit and the history of the house by restoring it to its´ former glory through a thorough but still gentle renovation. The focus has been on keeping and restoring much of the basic elements of this grand building, while adding the modern amenities needed for a really comfortable stay. We made sure to preserve and highlight unique features like the stone pillars in the dining room, and using antique tiles and old windows renovated by local craftsmen. The interior decoration is a combination of vintage and modern design classics, combined with handpicked finds scouted on numerous travels around the globe, with a mallorcan twist added. All in all creating a homey, yet stylish experience

Just outside the Studio is a roof terrace of approx 25 square metres equipped with a garden table, sun chairs and an outdoor shower for cooling on hot days. The terrace is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and snacks.
