Just off of the coast of eastern Spain, in the warm seas of the Mediterranean, are the Balearic Islands. Over the years, the four main islands — Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera — have become premier tourist destinations. So naturally, these once sleepy islands, now boast some exceedingly lavish real estate.
Here are LLNYC’s top three listing picks:
€39.5 million ($45.4 million)
Set on the top of a hill, with port and sea views, is this ten-bedroom estate. The villa consists of three buildings, one of which has three(!) heated pools on the roof. But more decadent still, roughly half of the buildings’ facade is made of fine crystal glass.
This property is located in the heart of Dalt Vila, a Unesco World Heritage Site. It has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a cinema room, a pool and what looks like its very own set of medieval ruins.
€17 million ($19.5 million)
This eight-bedroom villa overlooking the the bay of Port Andratx is made up of a main building, a separate guest house and a small apartment “for personnel.” It comes with terraces, an exotic garden a library, a gym and a cinema. Under the main house is an underground car park, which is connect to the house via a glass elevator.
