Ivy-clad finca


Up on the hilltop





Rustic and rural Casa Roca is the quintessential Mallorquín stone finca, with mint-green shutters and ivy crawling up the walls. High up on a hilltop, it’s all about the peace, quiet and panoramic views over the villages of Puigpunyent and Esporles, not the latest gadgetry. A private pool and barbecue pit complete this secluded hideaway.
