Several steps below the house, surrounded with scented pine trees, a 15m heated pool is oriented to take in the full, 360° panorama, where a backdrop of sheer mountain scree descends rapidly into olive and pine-carpeted foothills, before sliding casually into the sea. Further outdoor areas include a large terrace and dining area, ripe for long, lazy evenings with family and friends.
Unusually, for a private villa rental, rental includes a comprehensive team of staff, including chef, and daily breakfast, buffet lunch and three-course dinner six days a week and all drinks (see below). The villa can be taken on a self-catered basis outside of high season.
Sa Punta de S’Aguila is part of Sir Richard Branson’s Son Bunyola estate. Reincarnated over the course of 25 years, the estate comprises over 1,300 acres of countryside overlooking the sea, with citrus, almond and olive trees. There are two further villas within the estate, Son Balagueret and Sa Terra Rotja (both four bedrooms). In June 2023, the estate opened the doors of a 26-room five-star boutique hotel, Son Bunyola, a reimagination of a 16th century finca, brought bang up-to-date. Villa guests are welcome to dine at the hotel, where two restaurants are overseen by farm to fork specialist, Chef Samuel Galdón. There is also a spa with two treatment rooms and a nearby tennis court (early pre-booking for both is highly recommended). Numerous walking and biking trails zigzag the estate and beyond, including down to a rocky cove where crystal clear waves lap the shore. Bikes can be rented from the hotel and a walking guide can be booked to fully explore the estate.
