Close your eyes and imagine a peaceful place lost in a haven of greenery protected and declared World Heritage by UNESCO, where it is strictly forbidden to touch the smallest branch of one thousand-year-old trees.
Imagine an old Arabic Andalousian mansion, redecorated in modern style, a stunning property with a pool in the middle of olive trees and bougainvillea, a garden where you can relax and enjoy silence, a pergola where you can read in peace, an organic vegetable garden to feed the guests, the constant and deafening noise of the crickets, the heady scent of lemongrass and carob, and two cats that keep an eye on you.
Add to this heavenly blend, a madrilène family with a heart as luminous as their smile, and you’ll get Can Torna!
At just 20 minutes from Palma, the capital city of Majorca, one of the Balearic islands, Can torna is a rural guest house very comfy (Agroturismo).
Every little decoration detail is thought to be in harmony with the environment and in the respect of the history of this family legacy.
Rooms are full of magnificent art all chosen or done by Maria Jose, the woman head of family!
Fruits and veggies are organic and the food home made.
At Can Torna, everything is designed to make you relax and recharge your batteries.
Silence creates emptiness in our restless mind and our stressful life.
The energy of this wild and luxurious nature refreshes and revitalizes us in our heart and soul.
Here, the only noise is the crickets chants and the contagious laugh of Patricia, the owners daughter, that takes care of the reception and gives you her best addresses on the island: small and intimate beaches far from the crowd, her shopping tips and best restaurants!
At the pool, I find my man with Yvan, the owner, with a beer in hand, remaking the world with the sound of Estrella Morente or Paco de Lucia.
Here, everyone listens to flamenco, there are even shows where Patricia, flamenco proffesional dancer, bewitches us under the sound of Josemi Carmona’s guitar.
If you wish to have a massage, a German therapist gives sessions that are a mix of Reflexology/Ayurveda Massage/Naturopathy. She is EXCELLENT! And you can trust me on this one !
If you are lucky enough, Yvan will make his very own and delicious Paella! with all the vegetables from the garden that Yvan Junior, the son, had grown with so much passion and love for his land.
In short, I’ve never slept that good in my life, especially after long hours spent counting shooting stars in this so pure sky.
That place is, like its owners, an enchanted interlude that kept its authenticity, generosity and love that we all seek.
Only give the address to people you love 😉
