Fontenille Menorca: Hotel in Alaior
Fontenille Menorca is a unique agrotourism destination in the Balearic Islands that makes way for two discrete luxury experiences.
One estate, two experiences
Located on the unassuming island of Menorca in Alaior, Fontenille Menorca opened in 2019 as a apart of Les Domaines de Fontenille collection. Guillaume Foucher and Frédéric Biousse transformed 2 former fincas into hotels that promote the slow life movement. Fontenille Menorca is a concept that brings together two properties a few kilometers apart from each other with two very distinct styles. Santa Ponsa is an iconic 17th century palace whose lush terraced gardens are irrigated by a unique gravitational irrigation system in the Balearic Islands. Santa Ponsa consists of 22 rooms divided between the main house and former barns. The decoration reflects the place’s rich history, characterized by greenery and colonial influences, with rattan furniture, colorful walls and a winter garden. Santa Ponsa serves as the home of the estate. The restaurant serves contemporary Spanish locavore cuisine, 80% of which is supplied by the organic permaculture vegetable garden. Santa Ponsa offers a spa inside its beautiful ancient cisterns. Torre Vella, a typical Menorcan farmhouse, is located in the heart of a 200-hectare estate and takes its name from an ancient fortified watchtower. Torre Vella offers 17 rooms in the main house and in its former stables. The clean decoration reflects a chic bohemian style with white limewashed walls, waxed concrete, white curtains, driftwood, cactus, wicker hangings, and linen sofas. The rooms are equipped with a terrace and some of which have a private swimming pool. The on-site bar offers cocktails and light meals. A swimming pool is at the guests’ disposal as well as a deck for yoga classes. Here, agriculture is emphasized with a wine cellar, a distillery for essential oils, an oil press and a honey mill. All of these different hotel experience complement each other, creating a unique and relaxing mood.
