About six kilometres from Manacor, town of pearls, lies the 16thC finca of Son Sureda in the gently rolling countryside that is typical of the east of the island. It stands in grounds of some 200 hectares, surrounded by carob and almond trees, a Mediterranean forest and a botanic garden.
  After extensive renovation, the rooms, some with open fireplace, have a homely, earthy character, and are ideal for families or small groups. Reclaimed olive wood has been used effectively for work surfaces in the apartments kitchens. Walls are painted a sunny yellow and make a brilliant contrast to the rustic wooden furniture.
  There are two fine swimming pools in the garden, so you wont be overcrowded as you cool off. If you like riding, this is the place for you: Spanish racehorses are bred on the estate and the owners will be pleased to tell you all about it.
