Rustic & Privileged
Known as Can Salas in the past, now called Sa Cova, the question is what does one remember of it after having been there. The views and landscape, the wild, rocky coast, the olive groves, the peculiarities of the house, the quietness of the location or the pandemonium of a full house, the after-dinner conversations, the bucolic and rural features, the boat-house, the culinary feasts…all good enough reasons to make it special, unforgettable, unique.
One has to experience it oneself, but have a small taste of it here and then tell us that you do not want to see it yourself!
Far from being a typical Majorcan house, it owns its somewhat Indian character to a previous owner who, after spending some time in India during the last years of the 19th century as delegate of the Spanish salt company, gave it the present and singular looks.
A place to be shared
Throughout the past generations, one of the most defining characters of Can Salas has been of a place NOT to be alone in. Either you go there in company or you invite people once you are there; but to get the most out of the finca you need to share it with your people. It just lends itself to it.
Bucolic and self-sufficient comforts
With luxurious surroundings, rustic interiors and humble comforts round up its bucolic atmosphere. And even though modernity has found its way into Sa Cova, its special character comes from the traditional ways of an old, isolated land house, which adapted to the present possibilities has come to meet all the requirements of our current life-style.
A quiet corner on a burdened Island
Well known for its beaches & parties, there is much more to our island. In Sa Cova one discovers this other Mallorca; the one which still allows you to enjoy the quietness of a lonely bathe on a rocky beach during the sunset. Wishing to keep it so forever, we hope to share this exclusive spot of Mallorca with all of you and do our bit to change the image of our beautiful and traditional Island.
Four generations after that of Mr. Salas, our family has multiplied, making big gatherings part of our daily lives. Finca Can Salas is a young project, but having a full-house in Sa Cova is anything but new. We, our friends and our family have enjoyed it for decades. And we hope that so will you very soon!
Experiences you can’t miss!
The Olive harvest and olive oil production
The Olives are usually harvested in October at Sa Cova. Our local climate, combining the sea influence with a very dry and windy landscape, obliges us to harvest our olives much sooner than in other parts of Mallorca. On a steep, narrow terrain and having to keep the branches high to avoid them being stripped by the sheep, this is a very manual and patient work, better to be carried out with as much company as possible. With the growing extension of the olive groves, new and motivated hands are always welcome! Ask for the year prospectus and come in October or November to get your self-produced olive oil!
Wine and wine harvest
Before the hot summer days start coming to an end and the first storms appear at Can Salas, the wine grapes need to be harvested. Then the grapes will be processed and the wine production started. Without aspiring to produce more than an enjoyable table wine for our own consumption , everybody is welcome to see and learn, at the same time as we do, this interesting and complex process of wine production.
Sa Cova and good eating have come to be almost one and the same. From the well-known paella or the not so famous fideua, to the traditional tumbet or frit, there are many other delicacies which year after year have been keeping the kitchen pots and huge stove busy in our kitchen. Ask us about them and we will make sure your palate is not disappointed!
