While Mallorca certainly has many miles of gorgeous coastline, more and more visitors are coming to the island to enjoy its more peaceful rural interior. Catering to this demand, numerous fincas and country estates have been converted into lovely hotels, while integrating the surrounding countryside into the experience to create a genuinely rustic-style stay for guests. Here’s a rundown of some of the best places to enjoy a piece of bucolic bliss.

Son Tomaset

Located in the centre of the island in vast grounds surrounded by farmland, Son Tomaset is a haven of tranquility. It’s one of the less polished and more raw and rustic hotels on Mallorca, with the sounds of farmyard animals accompanying otherwise peaceful relaxation around the pool. Accommodation is modern and comfortable, however, and there is a lovely secluded courtyard where you can dine by candlelight. Clean air and a lack of light pollution also make the property a great spot for some clear-sky stargazing.

Surrounded by picturesque countryside with the majestic backdrop of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, the setting of the Monnaber Nou is really rather special. And the 17th-century country house itself isn’t short on rustic charm either, set in the grounds of an organic working farm (complete with animals) that produces much of what ends up in the restaurant’s kitchen. As well as loaner bikes, guests can rent horses from the hotel’s stables to explore the beautiful countryside, or just soak up the surroundings in the outdoor pool with aqua-massage water circuit and whirlpool.

Perched on a hill overlooking the picturesque valley of Puigpunyent, this former 17th-century country estate also scores high on stunning surrounds. A large pool lined with canopied cabanas makes the most of these scenic vistas, while palatial guest rooms feature charming period features such as exposed beams and stone arches. Art fans will find works by the likes of Chagall, Hockney and Andy Warhol gracing the walls. There are two restaurants serving outstanding Mallorcan-inspired dishes; wine is produced by the hotel’s vineyards, while the vegetables come from its own gardens.

    Housed in a restored 18th-century jesuit monastery, the Son Brull Hotel and Spa expertly combines the charming historic architecture with some gorgeous 21st-century design. The rural setting is also pretty special, nestled as it is among vineyards, lavender and lemon orchards in the foothills of the Tramuntana sierra. A luxury teakwood spa is a highlight and the on-site dining is outstanding, and largely sourced from products grown on the surrounding farmland. As five-star rustic retreats go, they don’t get much better than this.
