The space

The house was built in 19th century as a simple shelter for the forest ranger. It is built following the techniques of the vernacular architecture of Minorca: using "pedra i morter" which is a combination of calcareous stones and a mortar of lime and soil made locally.
In 2009 the house was completely rebuilt to adapt it to the actual way of living and to achieve the main aim of the house: Be a place to relax yourself and disconnect of the urban world.
Although it is isolated in the forest, the house is in the middle of the island of Minorca, which makes so easy the access to both, the north coast (10min by car) and the south coast (20min by car)

In winter, the forest is felt up with all classes of mushrooms and wild fruits, in autumn the brown of the leaves in the soil reflects the light make it very special, in spring there is the explosion of colours and smells and in summer the vegetation dries a lot but always assuring the presence of a good breeze.

The alteration of the house started in line with my studies of architecture in 2003 being a place of empiric application of everything I learned. In 2009 after 6 summers working on it with countrymen and so much help, we finish it finally.
Solar energy is used for lighting and pumps and butane gas is used to heat water. The heating of the place is via a pleasant fireplace.
A recycled picea pine flooring was made for the interior of the place and for the exterior construction form panels were used. The house is whitewashed entirely, the beans are naturally oiled and the pluvial water system was kept in order to have rainwater.
The windows are minimal metalwork painted in black in order to emphasize the massive walls and the veranda is educatedly separated from the house to respect the original structure.

Please, be aware that the house is located in a farm, so that the house and its surroundings are 100% rural.

This is a true gem of a place, beautifully designed and full of character, perfect to get away and immerse in nature, but also a close drive from everything - towns and beaches. It's a sustainable build powered by solar panels and gas tanks so be mindful of any wastage, though it…

The House is what it says: A House in the middle of a forest, away from the noise of other humans. If you are looking for isolation, this is the right place. It's a bit humid and full of annoying flies (summer time) but we loved it. Beatriz was an excellent Host. Reliable and pro…
