Hotel and restaurant in the country. On the island of Menorca, owners Frédéric Biousse and Guillaume Foucher have embarked on a beautiful adventure by resurrecting two traditional Minorcan farmhouses from their ashes, which today compose the Fontenille Menorca.

Decorated with natural materials in shades reminiscent of linen, sandstone and slate, the rooms and suites maintain their cool freshness, while the Mediterranean sun invites you to take refuge under the palm trees that line the pool and stand tall against the azure blue sky.

Hotel and restaurant in the mountains. In the west of Majorca, the Sierra de Tramontana is a paradise of olive and almond trees that once inspired Frédéric Chopin, on his romantic travels with author George Sand, to write his Preludes. In fact, Valldemossa belonged to the former estate of the Carthusian Monastery where Chopin and Sand stayed and still reflects the same purity and beauty that the famous couple enjoyed. Behind the stone walls that give protection from the glare of the sun, there are very charming rooms with four-poster beds dressed in white netting. On the agenda are Mediterranean dinners on the terraces overlooking the burnt landscapes of the island, and the gentle pleasures of an exceptional swimming pool, golf, sailing, watersports and other preludes. ...
