Hotel Son Net
Castillo de Sonnet s/n
seven miles from Palma, Mallorca’s capital, Puigpunyent is a small village
dominated by an impressive house called Son Net. Legend has it that the
land surrounding Son Net once belonged to a nobleman who had excelled as
a pirate in the 12th century, when Mallorca was feared throughout the region
for its marauding corsairs. There has been a house on this site for a thousand
years, but the present building dates back mainly to the 17th century,
when it served as a country retreat for an aristocratic family from Palma.
Hotel Son Net has welcomed many famous visitors, ranging from the king
and queen of Spain, Lauren Bacall, Claudia Schiffer, Michael Douglas and
the Kennedys. David Stein may have opened a hotel, but Son Net still gives
the impression of being a wonderful private house filled with old and new
old finca dating from 1672, with its beautiful patio and original well,
has been restored several times to date. The most recent renovation was
completed in June 1998. Natural stone flagged floors and ancient rustic
beams are combined with the elegance and traditional interior designed
public areas and guestrooms. This not to mention, of course, the impressive
centenary oil press converted into a gourmet restaurant.

hotel with original works by artists such a Marc Chagall, Frank Stella,
David Hockney, Andy Warhol and others.

Spring, summer, autumn and
even winter... each season has a charm of its own. Well, it couldn't be
any other way in Mallorca. It's why this beautiful Mediterranean island
has become a favourite year round tourist destination, be it for lonely
travellers, couples or families.
For many tourists sun and
beach holidays are at the top of their list of preferences. However, travellers
haven't always been this keen on sunbathing and swimming. The first tourists
who visited the island swam very little indeed. George Sand and her companion,
composer Frederic Chopin, spent the winter of 1838-1839 on the island to
help him recover his fragile health. And the Archduke Luis Salvador, who
first came some ten years later, at the age of 22, remained faithful to
the island, winter and summer, until the day he died in 1915. According
to the writings of these distinguished visitors they never got bored during
their stays on the island of Mallorca.
