Six guest houses belong to the vast XVI century noble estate that has been in the same family for the last several centuries. Guest houses sit aside from the main residence that is still occupied by the owners and enjoy the gardens and generous pool.

The space

The natural stone guest houses have been recently meticulously restored creating all modern facilities whilst preserving the original historic features. Magnificent views to the mountains and the estate fields with almond, olive and carob trees are complimented by remarkable tranquility and convenient proximity and direct connection to Palma.

Guests houses are set amidst spacious gardens with autochthonous plants of the island and share a large salt water swimming pool with changing house. There is plenty of space for both a quiet rest in a hidden garden corner and for children to play together on a lawn. All houses have their own private terraces and enjoy beautiful views over the countryside and mountains. The vast private land surrounding the estate buildings ensures a perfect sleep with the distant village background of sheep bells and chickens. Early in the morning you can even see wild rabbits running around the swimming pool and partridges and pheasants crossing the drive.

Gardening is the owner's passion and the cottages are named after the traditional plants of the island that you will find around in abundance. Houses are decorated with a mix of modern furniture and antique pieces from the family heritage. They are fully equipped with all modern facilities including air-conditioning in all rooms, quality kitchen appliances, free wi-fi internet, TV with international channels. Private parking.

The group of houses of various sizes provides a rare opportunity for a private family holiday or can accommodate a large group of friends or several families traveling together whilst ensuring everybody's privacy in the spacious estate grounds and their own outdoor space. If you are interested in renting all the houses for a special event, please enquire well in advance to ensure availability and a special rate.

My husband and I stayed at the Herbasana guest house at El Sestadors for the first three days of our honeymoon. It was nothing short of amazing. The view alone was worth the money spent, not to mention the pristine pool, rustic but renovated cottages, and overall serenity of the property that relaxes any guests. Though we never interacted with Jose or Zaretta, the property manager we had detailed instructions with directions on how to get to El Sestadors from the airport, where to park, and information on where the key would be left. Zaretta was very prompt in responding to my emails. The place was clean, with ample amenities (first aid kid, body wash, dish soap for the dishwasher and detergent for the washer) as well as an iron, drying rack, and safe. We honestly felt we had the place to ourselves though we saw three other cars, we didn't meet any other guests but were fine with that. We had more than enough room in our 2 bedroom 2 full bath cottage. We would love to return someday soon!

We stayed in the Herbasana guest house for a few days in June, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. After a few days running around Palma on foot, Els Sestadors is the perfect place to stay if you want to rent a car and see the island, then come back and relax at the end of the day. Beautiful property, the rooms were elegant and clean. The two-bedroom units offer lots of privacy and are well equipped. The vibe is laid back and relaxed, pool is lovely, and our host Jose was wonderful. It's not far from town, but so quiet that you feel like you're way out in the country. Establiments is a beautiful village, and we enjoyed getting to know the area. And go grab a beer and some food at Es Muntants if you're there, we loved it. It's not a long drive from Valdemossa and the mountains, so don't miss that. Next time we're in Mallorca, we would love to return to Els Sestadors.

Highly recommended! Lovely and spacious apartment with huge private terrace with a view of the pool. We travelled around on public transport which was very easy, with a regular bus into Palma at the end of the estate. Jose was welcoming and popped by once to check everything was okay. Really relaxing and we throughly enjoyed our stay.

Joses place is magical. Close to Palma, yet with a lovely scene feel like you're in the country. Great for two couples or friends on holiday. Jose was great to communicate with and the detailed guide in the house was a lifesaver on many occasions. We'd happily return.

A beautiful location and only a 10 minute drive to Palma. Also, a short drive to a few pretty smaller towns with lovely local restaurants. Very clean apartment with good AC which you'll be thankful for at night!
