Balearic Islands
Balearic islands

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:

Villa Chameleon, Mallorca

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.
