ABOUT SON ALMENDROS
Son Almendros used to be the private residence of Thomas Wegner (1946 - 2016), an avid art collector, autodidactic architect, music lover, entrepreneuer, novice olive farmer, and philanthropist. He designed the finca Son Almendros in the 2000s, and later added his last ambitious project - Morgana (named after the illusion of having a Fata Morgana). Son Almendros is literally defined by its stairs, which appear to rise into the sky and encapsulate the courtyard and swimming pool. The swimming pool, accessible through the kitchen, courtyard, and first floor (if you are daring!) is 20m wide and up to 5m deep. The lush gardens and terraces invite you to relax, embrace the mallorquin sun and enjoy life just as Thomas would have done it. The interior is tastefully decorated and leaves nothing up to chance.

Son Almendros is a incomparable Finca designed by Thomas Wegner. It boasts stunning views from its rooftop, a waterfall pool built seemingly running into the living room, a lush, enchanted garden, spa area, and exquisite interior design throughout. While it has been a popular location for films and photoshoots, it is also great for design-conscious travelers and their friends.
The Finca occupies approx. 17.000 square meters on idyllic grounds and was built on three levels. On the “bel etage” you will find a spacious open kitchen and dining area with a fireplace and excess to the patio. Capturing the essence of being indoors and outdoors at the same time, the terrace seamlessly transcends by employing large window doors that let light flush and savour the calming waterfall noises in the background. The stone leaves the house cool during the summer days and saves the heat for the evenings. Even on colder days, the underfloor heating ensures a cozy atmosphere – to direct your attention at the light and shadow play projected from the swimming pool and unfolding in the space at night.
The living room leads to a separate sitting room with a king-size bed to enjoy a homely movie night.
In a separate guest area, that connects to the main house, you find the second bedroom with space to wander around and get inspired in the small library. Daybreak hits the double bed early, inviting your eyes to take in the large garden leading to Morgana. The staircase separating the room leads you to an underground area, that offers a generous spa fitted with a sauna and a jacuzzi, for your relaxation.
On the second floor of the main house, two bedrooms let you enjoy every morning’s first sunshine that hits over the terrace and enlightens the minimalistic styled rooms. The masters suite boasts a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bath that attaches to a second bathroom via a shared bath tub - a quirky feature if you want to stay close to your guests, but not too close. The third bedroom is adjacent with a double bed. Through the large window doors, you can access the terrace directly from both rooms and enjoy your morning coffee in the Mallorquin sun, perhaps you are brave enough to take a leap from the 2nd floor into the pool for a morning dip.
The terrace connects a guest apartment with the rest of the house. The bedroom provides a place for privacy with its ensuite bathroom and a small kitchenette. Not only the high windows allow the sunlight to come in, but additionally, star-shaped windows at the ceiling let you enjoy the night sky from bed.
With an outside cooking area on the terrace, you can feel free to enjoy your dinner with friends, music and a stunning view of the estate with its swimming pool, symmetrically built pond and garden.
The roof terrace gives space to fall in love with the beautiful mountain views. Not only it is a balm for the eyes, but also the perfect place to enjoy a regional wine, with the heat of the sun still felt in the stones.
The symmetrically designed garden flaunts a beautiful saltwater pool, a pond to watch gold fish and a garden that allows a pick-nick on not only the grass but also a walk into the magical “fairy garden”: Morgana. Here you can enjoy a night full of light spectacles, water fountains, and artistic walk-in glass pavilions shaped after naturally occurring crystals.
Son Almendros minimalist architecture achieves to combine a modern touch with the Majorquin nature. The house encapsulates Thomas Wegner’s love of art, architecture and homeliness that assures an ordinary stay for for family and friends.
