Peace – this is how we describe Son Josep de Baix with only one word. Putting the first steps on the finca’s grounds, you feel like all the stress and the little worries of everyday life are far behind, this is how many of our guests describe their feelings. The historic buildings, the old tress and the rural surroundings make you feel the authentic Majorcan way of life immediately.
The Agroturismo Son Josep de Baix is located on an extensive country estate on Majorca’s east coast. The property stretches all the way to the Mediterranean Sea, so after a nice walk of about 20 minutes you can reach the three beautiful bays Es Caló des Serral, Cala Magraner and Cala Sequer. Families will find perfect beaches for fun in the sun and in the water and couples will enjoy the romantic spots and peaceful environment. Also, the bays invite to diving and fishing. Further beaches and bays are located in the surroundings and can easily be reached by car or bicycle. You can thus enjoy two holidays in one at our finca: beach vacation and country life – a very rare combination in Majorca!
The small rural hotel with its 9 apartments is only one part of the estate: for generations, agriculture is practiced actively on the grounds – about 400 sheep graze in the pastures, chicken will cross your paths, cereals grow on the fields, carobs, fig, olive and almond trees are surrounding you. Son Josep is our paradise on earth, a haven of peace and relaxation for families and couples
Family-owned for many generations
It was the great-great-grandfather of Guillem, today’s Director of the Agroturismo, who bought the estate of Son Josep many years ago. He had three daughters – but only one finca. So he decided to divide the estate into three parts and give one to each of his girls: Son Josep de Dalt (de arriba = the upper area), Son Josep de Sa Talaya (the area around the historic watchtower) and Son Josep de Baix (de abajo = the lower area), the area where our hotel is located.
The transformation from a private estate into the Agroturismo Son Josep de Baix began more than 20 years ago and is still going on today: Our wish has always been to open the estate to guests, to show them authentic country life on a Majorcan finca and to fulfil all needs of comfort and service today’s travellers might have. Preserving the authentic charm has always been a priority: sheep and horse stables as well as former barns have been renovated and transformed into guest rooms – they let us experience their long history without having to compromise on comfort.
