New property: Son Bunyola

Virgin Limited Edition announced at the end of 2015 the purchase of Son Bunyola situated on the Northwest coast of Mallorca.

Jon Brown, Managing Director of Virgin Limited Edition, said: “It is well known that both Virgin Limited Edition and Sir Richard Branson have historic ties and a great fondness for Mallorca and we are delighted that Son Bunyola will be joining the collection.”

Son Bunyola is a large private historic estate which is made up of one main Finca building dating back to the 1800s surrounded by vines, citrus fruit trees, almonds and olive trees. There are also three individual villas, Sa Punta, Sa Terra Rotja and Son Balagueret, each of which has its own private grounds. Virgin Limited Edition intends to renovate the three villas in time for the 2016 summer season.

The estate is over 700 acres (283 hectares) and is located in between Esporles and Banyalbufar on the Northwest coast of Mallorca. The area is dominated by the Tramuntana mountain range with its breath-taking scenery, and is home to some of the most historical and picturesque towns on the island.

As a company Virgin Limited Edition’s recruiting policy is to source people as locally as possible, integrating and giving back to surrounding communities by offering training and employment and we look forward to implementing this with our exciting new venture in Mallorca.
