can bordoy grand house and garden | palma de mallorca
Grandezza in all the senses.
This spruced-up former 16th – century mansion hideaway with its secret-garden in Palma’s most characterful neighborhood is a triumph of decadent design on an island that just keeps getting better. On the inside, original features were either restored or recreated by local design studio OHLAB, then paired with art deco and mid-century designs – the Thirties-style headboards and custom-made drinks cabinets in the elegant and classy rooms are a particular feast for the eye. Outside, the centrepiece courtyard garden and pool is a sanctuary in the heart of the city, screened by fruit-laden orange trees and perfumed by shrubs and flowers.Unwilling to be tamed, the greenery has also crept inside, inspiring the organic menu at restaurant Botànic and running wild in the fairytale lounges, where the ceilings are crossed with creepers and ferns.
