Geographical origin

The Ses Cabanasses estate is in the municipality of Petra in the north-east of Mallorca. Surrounded by wild vegetation, it covers an area of 290 hectares and is a small enclave that is virtually untouched by the passage of time. The estate’s most distinctive features are the views from the houses, which overlook the majesty of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains and the great expanse of low garrigue typical of the Mediterranean landscape.
