The current Hotel Can Ferrereta was from the 18th century one of this town’s great stately houses. The Soldevila-Ferrer family, owner of the Sant Francesc Hotel in the historic center of Palma, was seeking a site on the island to recreate its business model in a rural setting. The aim was to create a large house that would retain the original mansion’s rural character, with a look including features from the local countryside. The idea was that the original parts of the building and the new structures would be merged in a smooth blend using high-quality natural and craft materials, in some cases salvaged from other buildings.
