Overview

Discover the secret, hidden side to the island, where private houses quietly exist behind thick walls of olive trees, protected from curious gazes of tourists. The island, located near Ibiza off the Mediterranean coast of Spain, is the sort of place dreams are made of.

Only a lucky few have turned such a dream into reality, and Country Houses of Majorca is your chance to see the stunning evidence in pictures. This is the side of Majorca only seen by those who live there, enjoying daily the luxury of not only the lush scenery but also the rich Majorcan culture and sumptuous cuisine (which you can test for yourself thanks to the house owners' favorite recipes we've included in the book).

The 260 photographs highlight the island's most impressive homes, including many undiscovered houses not published until now. Among these treasures you'll find Frederic Chopin and George Sand's one-time winter hideaway, a tiny fisherman's cottage miraculously perched on the island's southeast cliffs, and the beautiful, old, antique-filled fincas restored by Nona von Haeften and her husband, Wolfgang Siegfried Wagner, great grandson of composer Richard Wagner.

Let yourself be seduced by the country houses of Majorca -you won't regret the experience, even if it sends you into fits of envy.
