Son Marroig showcases elements that are a personal favorite such as white walls, dark wood, formal furniture mixed with casual natural textures such as rush, cotton fabrics, dried flowers, and woven baskets.
While driving along the western coast of Mallorca we spotted, Son Marriog, this amazing country home open for tours. The family still resides there so only parts of it were available to be seen, unfortunately. I had to restrain from opening closed doors and obeying the stansions roping off the third floor. To learn about the history of this home’s famous owner, ‘S’Arxiduc or Archduke Ludwig Salvador, see here.
The living room displays the many collections of Son Marroig’s owner such as Mallorcan fabrics, rugs, photos, and Spanish lusterware just to name a few.
The formal dining room is next to the salon.
In case you were wondering about the view from this home, it is incredible. The white marble rotunda, imported from Italy, provides an even closer view of the spectacular Mediterranean Sea.
As beautiful as Son Marroig was, I loved the gardens just as much. It was the perfect mix of controlled and wild with wonderfully exotic plants, fruit trees, and flowers.
Hope they like where they placed this table because it isn’t one you would want to move.
This garden appeals because of its combination of formal elements such as the allée of palms with the looser underplantings of oleander and cactus.
I could have stayed at Son Marroig all day but clearly it was time to leave.
