Son Rullan is a converted 13th century monastery tucked high in the hillside amidst Mallorca’s stunning Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was serendipity that landed us on this remarkable property during our Spanish scouting trip late last summer, and she stole our hearts the minute we set foot on her blessed grounds. The thick stone walls, pebbled floors, beamed ceilings, cozy communal spaces, tiered outdoor terraces and pool . . . every last altar, tabletop, and nook creating beautiful, almost sacred vignettes. The historic monastery is surrounded by cascades of ancient olive groves and boasts some of the most breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. The charming village of Deià is just a 10-minute drive away (though we prefer the hike that the monks used to take) where you can dip in and out of art galleries, taste local fare, and make your way down to the emerald-hued calas, or coves, for that perfect afternoon swim.
