Discover a different side of Mallorca

If you tend to think of the Balearic island as a place where party tourists go wild in crowded beach bars, be sure to continue reading. Because I'm going to tell you about a very different side of Mallorca.

One that impresses with its silence not its opulence. One that provides energy instead of consuming it. That attracts early birds rather than night owls, and one that promises long lasting happiness over cheap pleasure.

In the heart of the island, among fields where sheep peacefully graze, knotty olive trees, and rolling green hills, the villa is nestled on a panoramic slope overlooking the surrounding scenery.

You can hear the birds singing and your heart laughing as the sun rises and sets, showcasing a theatrical color spectacle of pastel pinks and oranges. The ideal place to regenerate holistically for a few days and bask in tranquility.

Activate your own healing energy during a yoga retreat at Osa Major

From March to late autumn, the finca is open as a yoga retreat. Renowned yoga teachers from all over Europe travel here to pamper their yoga students. The day usually starts with a yoga session in the private dark wooden shala. Followed by a nutritious breakfast on the spacious terrace under the light thatched roof.

In the time between yoga classes, you can swim in the sparkling waters of the beautiful infinity pool. Or you fall asleep in one of way too comfy butterfly chairs. You can also find yourself a shady spot to read in the lush organic garden. Or simply just be and indulge in the spiritual presence of this sweet life.

Some retreats are accompanied by Nina, the daughter of the "casa", with her culinary creations. She is a talented chef who uses the natural ingredients of the garden and local sourced products to prepare delicious and balanced dishes that will nourish not only your body, but also your soul.

The hosts, Brenda and Roland, are two genuine creative souls. At first glance, the interior of the impressive house made of soft warm sandstone looks like an exhibition space. Here you can discover the most fascinating souvenirs, that they have been collecting on their travels around the globe. But unlike the cold atmosphere of museums, it is allowed to breathe here.

And you may even touch the artifacts. Because the welcoming spirit of Osa Major is present in all these things. You may always feel the lively radiance of this place. And the more time you spend here, the more of it you will gradually find within yourself.

The outdoor area is a meticulously curated blend of natural beauty and carefully cultivated gardens, creating an enchanting atmosphere. As you wander around, you'll discover little corners of happiness where you can indulge in silence and unwind.

I guarantee you'll have a hard time deciding which spot to nominate as your favorite. The shallow end of the pool, which is romantically called "the Beach", dipping your feet in the pleasantly cooling water? A feeling almost as if you really were at the sea. Or the wooden shala where you can practice yoga every day, surrounded by the peaceful soundtrack of nature?
