Sits atop a beautiful hillside in Menorca, Balearic Islands, the Finca Es Bec d’Aguila is a magical hotel and place crowning the landscape.
From here, visitors can look out near and far over the agricultural fields surrounding the property, some of which yield the hotel’s vegetables, eggs, and honey.
Somewhere between a hotel and a home, Es Bec d’Aguila combines the conviviality of a vacation house with the services of an upscale hotel.
The environments are soft, luminous, elegant, and authentic; this was accomplished in part through the use of local materials and know-how: dry stone walls, marès stone, white and colored lime, built-in furniture, terracotta, hidráulicos. The mixing of period furniture from England, France, Denmark, and Spain create an eclectic space that nevertheless remains rich in its Menorcan influences.
The story of Es Bec d’Aguila started in the 19th century when a family of Menorcan merchants built their weekend getaway on the top of a hill surrounded by beautiful pastoral countryside. The family would come to enjoy the wildlife, to hunt and to entertain in the elegant house.
Acquired recently by its current owners, the property was brought back to its bygone splendor with elements of classical Minorcan architecture and rediscovered hidden charms such as a beautifully landscaped garden, authentic vaulted ceilings, and Cuban handmade tiles.
