Located in the pastoral interior of Ibiza amid 10 hectares of biodynamic orchards and pine groves is a recent collaboration between Design Hotels and Friends of a Farmer, a group which bills itself as "a creative community forged around the cultivation of art, crops, and inner gardens". A 200 year old farmhouse, marked by classical Iberian architecture with traces of Moorish influences, was converted into a members-only retreat of 9 suites and a private 2 bedroom guesthouse by Dreimeta Design studio led by Armin Fischer. A boho farmhouse aesthetic of minimalist elegance permeates the boutique hotel in a medley of dark burnt wood, distressed wooden furniture, dark painted walls anchored with slabs of slate and stone. Mediterranean gardens surround the sprawling estate with stone terraces, an infinity pool and an outdoor bar. Pared-down, yet luxurious, La Granja is ideal for those seeking a simpler, quieter way of life, surrounded by good food and company.

Situated in the mountains among unspoiled nature with 180 degree views of Gavarres National Park, this beautifully restored farmhouse (Masia) was completely rebuilt by an acclaimed Barcelona architect as a sustainable modern eco-villa, featuring a natural water pool, uber modern kitchen appliances, and chic decor throughout. The owners have taken great care in making every aspect of the home intuitive and comfortable, perfectly blending the spacious and sleek design of a modern home with rural charm. With 6 bedrooms, it is the ideal vacation home for friends and families, with a balance of contemporary design, sustainable architecture, and that feeling of "getting away from it all". Located just a 20min drive from Girona, it is easily accessible to restaurants and shops, however once you arrive, I don't think you'll be wanting to leave!

Redesigned by a renowned Barcelona architect, this beautiful 5 bedroom villa harmoniously juxtaposes old and new styles in line with the surrounding nature and environment. Located on a hill in National Park outside Girona, this stunning sustainable home is surrounded by landscaped gardens with endless views extending towards the Mediterranean sea. Inside, a mix of clay, steel and wood are balanced together creating a unique atmosphere with the stone facade and large openings with rusted steel-framed windows. The upper floor opens out onto the garden, terrace and infinity swimming pool, filtered by plants and gravel. Remote enough to elicit the utmost peace and serenity, yet only 20 minutes to the nearest town, this architectural delight is ideal for families, groups and nature lovers that want to escape with all the modern conveniences.

Mallorca is the perfect mix of countryside, ocean, forest and mountain ranges. And what better way to experience that than by staying at an Agritourismo! We loved Monnaber Vell, a 13th Century Estate once a monastery that was successfully converted into a stunning property with 15 beautifully decorated rooms. We also thoroughly enjoyed Hort De Cas Misser, an original Mallorcan home dating 300 years with 8 spacious rooms stylishly decorated, surrounded by olive groves, gardens and fruit orchards. Both were the ultimate in serenity and relaxation!
