A hotel with History in Mallorca

The Castell’s first official mention in 1450 describes five separate properties. When Don Gabriel Claret owned the estate in the late 1800’s, he decided to unite all these properties into one estate – Castell Son Claret – which remains at its current size of 132 ha. 100 years later, stables and smaller buildings were added; the Castell’s current blue print, as well as its iconic façade, was then established. After the affectionate restoration and reconstruction by its owners Christine and Klaus-Michael Kühne, the Castell was opened as a luxury hotel in May 2013.

Mallorca is...

Mallorca is the largest island of the Balearic archipelago, which, together with Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, forms a uniprovincial autonomous community (Islas Baleares), the easternmost of Spain. The island has 3640.11 km², which makes it the largest island in Spain and the sixth largest in the Mediterranean. It is the most populated island of the Balearic archipelago, with more than 859 289 inhabitants and the second most populated island of Spain after Tenerife. Mallorca has a population density of 240.45 inhabitants / km². In the past, due to its calm atmosphere, it was also known as La isla de la calma, but now it is a very important tourist destination, both nationally and internationally. Mallorca is located geographically in the central area of ​​the Mediterranean Sea, which translates into the blessing of a pleasant climate with more than 2,700 hours of sunshine per year. With an average temperature of around 26 ° C between May and September, they rarely fall below 13 ° C in early spring.

Beaches

Without any doubt one of the pillars of the splendor of Mallorca are its beautiful beaches and “calas”. No tourist leaves the island without enjoying the splendor and calm of the Mediterranean Sea. The offer is wide and varied: in the 550 kilometers of coastline there are more than 340 beaches, from small stone coves to long sandy beaches, some accessible on foot and others only by sea, making the same authentic natural treasures to discover.

Mountains

The Mallorcan relief is formed by the Tramuntana Mountainrange or “Serra de Tramuntana”, with the highest mountains, the “Serra de Levante” (Levante Mountainrange), with more modest heights, and other minor mountains. The Serra de Tramuntana, that stretches all along the northwest, forms impressive cliffs and rocky coves that contrast with the sandy beaches of the rest of the coast. The “Pla” is the fertile central plain. To the west of this plain and in the center of the bay of Palma is the capital, Palma.

Puig Major (1445 m)

There are several ways to prepare rice, the most typical is the so-called “Arròs brut”, which consists of a rice soup with mushrooms, snails, pork, rabbit and poultry and vegetables, although the “Arroç sec” is also very traditional, similar to paella.

The sausages are also one of the main elements of its cuisine; sobrasada, llonganissa, butifarrón, camaiot and blanquet among others.

Local Pastries

The most famous pastrie is the Ensaimada that is usually taken at breakfast, but also made in familiar size filled with cream, “Cabello de angel”, chocolate or with sobrasada pieces and candied pumpkin.

The beauty of the Majorcan countryside is reflected in the lovingly created gardens that surround Castell Son Claret. In the extensive grounds a small paradise was created, that will immerse guests into the history of this enchanted place.
The roughly two century old olive trees El y Ella are witnesses to the turbulent past and stand beside each other like an old couple. Island typical trees like almond, olive and orange as well as bergamot, vetiver, jasmine, coriander and roses all come together to create a very special scent that drifts through the entire estate and that activates all senses.
Small discreet sitting areas in the Moorish garden entice and invite one to enjoy and daydream. The characteristic scent is also available as our ‘Jardi de Claret’ fragrance in cooperation with Gaia Products.
