Best for The Beach - Expert review of Can Simoneta

Designer cliff-top retreat on the north-east coast.

Can Simoneta is a kind of 'casa jet set'. Think Malibu on the Med, complete with hammocks swinging on the breeze, private beaches, and lots of champagne on ice. Add the high-spec conversion of a honey-coloured farmhouse, minimally but carefully decorated, and you have one of the most sensational properties in Spain.

Location: 

Perched on the clifftops of the north-eastern tip of Majorca, it is a bit of a slog from Palma, but more than makes up for it with its close proximity to the charming market town of Artà and two of my favourite beaches: Cala’s Mesquida and Torta.

Bedrooms: 

With just six rooms, Can Simoneta is nothing if not intimate. Clean architectural lines and crisp white linens could seem a little stark, but the effect is nicely softened with stripped back wooden beams and cosseting textiles of wool and linen. Suite Neptuno is a private cottage with its own plunge pool and garden. The luxury suite has its own Jacuzzi, while both the superior and junior suites have their own terraces. Pitched roof room is exactly that, small but romantic, with magnificent sea views.

Public areas: 

Like all the rural hotels I’ve featured, Can Simoneta is all about the outdoor spaces, though the interior is pleasant enough (big thumbs up for the eco-fireplaces). Where it wows is in the manicured lawn that seems to merge with the horizon, a Jacuzzi at the edge of the cliff and an infinity pool spilling over it, and a secret stairway leading down to a private beach - all things that make it one of those I-think-I-might-have-died-and-gone-to-heaven experiences.

Eating and drinking: 

Up-scale Mediterranean fare that frustratingly doesn’t always come up to scratch -something the stunning views over the big blue cannot make up for.

Leisure facilities: 

Boat trips and reduced green fees for golfers. Spa. Picnics on request.

Service: 

Pleasantly laid-back, always professional.
