Visit Ses Garites

Ses Garites is an ancient fortified country house from the 16th and 17th century which has been restored and adapted with all the modern comforts as a delightful small hotel or country retreat. It has 5 very large and spacious bedrooms with great character, as well as a family apartment, a lounge, a library and a dining room. It is very fortunate to be located in a marvellous area of such natural beauty.

Knowing ses garites

(...) La casa está admirablemente colocada sobre el paisaje. Los hombres que la construyeron formaban parte del anonimato más glorioso. Sin embargo, se daban cuenta del peso, de las formas, del espíritu de la realidad circundante. (...) Es una obra de gente tensa. Aquellos hombres levantaron la casa pensando que no era más que un elemento minúsculo del paisaje. Y por ello mismo crearon una obra útil, bella, elegante. Cuatro siglos de intemperies humanas y de meteorologías diversas parecen haberla madurado: sus líneas se han endulzado y se han fusionado con la tierra; la piedra se ha dorado y atenuado. Su contemplación me produce una fascinación acogedora, da reposo y calma mi espíritu. Una gran paz rodea la casa. (...)
Josep Pla. El payés y su mundo
