About this property
Historians claim that Christopher Columbus was Spanish born and raised in Mallorca. Local legend has it that this historical Finca was the Columbus family home and that the explorer spent his formative years here. This property is possibly one of the oldest inhabited fincas in Mallorca (dating from 14th century). A magical and unique oasis set among beautiful, landscaped gardens minutes away from the nearest town of Felanitx and its full amenities.
Built into the side of a mountain, nearly every room has a spectacular cave backdrop.
The property has 5 bedrooms and two swimming pools (one heated), inside and outside cinema areas, jacuzzi (set within an old stone mine), a working vineyard with wine making facilities and numerous areas for relaxing, playing, dining, and drinking.
The property has 2 bedrooms in the main house and 3 further bedrooms in the 3 garden casitas, each named after the ships of Columbus: Santa Maria, Nina and Pinta. The property has been completely renovated and has been with the current owners since 2006. If you appreciate unique properties the ‘cave’ living room will astound you.
The gardens were designed by renowned British plantsman and writer Stephen Lacey and were featured in The Daily Telegraph. The garden features 10 different planting zones unified by the rock, walls and wild olives and feature the Monastery Garden, Mine Garden, Mine (with Jacuzzi and indoor cinema area), a Rill and Waterfall and a large ‘picnic and sundowner’ cave.
- Felanitx is a very traditional Mallorcan town. Founded in the 13th century, it is famous for the production of ceramics, wine and cognac, products that have become quite well known over the years, even abroad. The medieval Gothic monastery of Sant Salvador stands on a mighty mountain near the village; it seems to be protecting Felantix and its inhabitants. A visit to San Salvador is rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views. Felanitx is also the birthplace of painter Miquel Barceló, a world-famous contemporary artist who has exhibited his work in most of the world’s most important art galleries.
