Villas in Formentor
Located in the northern part of Mallorca and being the ultimate extension of the Serra de Tramuntana, Formentor, also known as Cala del Pi de la Posada, for centuries a quiet haven of famous people, against a backdrop of dense oaks and pines that preserve the perfect curve of the beach of Formentor, is one of the natural symbols of Mallorca in its entirety. It is a peaceful and serene place, located about 14 km. from Puerto de Pollensa and 62 km. from the capital, Palma de Mallorca, which shines in the vast bay of Pollensa. Formentor Beach is one of the most famous and visited in Mallorca, a pristine beach that has nothing to envy to any other Caribbean beach. Unspoiled, the place has also been an inspiration for artists and poets from different eras.
Accessed by a winding road with spectacular views across its route of 14 km. in which views of the bay of Pollensa and very hilly cliffs can be seen. This road goes to Cap de Formentor, closing out the bay on the north by the peaks looming over the sea. It is a bright landscape worth to go until the end, where the Formentor lighthouse, built in 1863 to signal the end marina. At his feet some coves open, only accessible via steep paths and from the sea, the journey from Puerto Pollensa to Formentor is a unique excursion that you should not forget to make a stop along the way and watch as bare mountains fall abruptly on the Sea, configuring monumental cliffs. A stop along the way you can enjoy the spectacular view from La Creueta, at 232 meters high from where you can see the island of Colomer and Albercuix Watchtower, the defense tower built to defend against pirates.
The lands of Formentor belonged to the family of Costa i Llobera, but in 1928 the lands of Formentor were acquired by Adam Diehl, from Argentina, and the following year launched the elegant Hotel Formentor, making his dream of building a meeting place for artists and intellectuals, which he achieved in 1929 in record time with workers working three shifts of 8 hours, the hotel was built and opened to the public that has to be accessed by sea. That is the reason why it has been preserved as an unspoiled area as it was inaccessible until the road from Puerto de Pollensa, breaking centuries of isolation, was inaugurated in 1930. And so began the parade of intellectuals and artists by the legendary Hotel Formentor and the same area, a place of exclusive and selected villas.
Formentor area, from its development, has always been visited by famous people including glamorous characters such as Grace Kelly, Charles Chaplin, Peter Ustinov, Churchill, Gorbachev, the Duke of Alba, Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant, John Wayne, Claudia Cardinale, Jane Birkin and attracted many more, all attracted by a special and privileged location in a unique natural setting.
