L'Hermitage is an elegant Hotel located in the sleepy valley of Orient, one of the most pristine and tranquil regions of Mallorca. Century-old trees, apple and olive groves surround this exquisite country Hotel, a 17th century mansion, which was once a bishop's seat and a monastery.
The centre of the main building is about 700 years old. As we see the Hermitage of today, it has been for 400 years. Until 50 years ago the main building was one of the manor houses in the valley of Orient. The first change took place of the beginning of the 50s, when Don Feliú de Cabrera, a Majorcan grandee, bought the estate Son Barnadás (the previous name of the Hermitage) and accustomed it to his religious and cultural requirements.. As Don Feliú de Cabrera was the Greek Orthodox bishop of the Balears, he built the monastery and its cloister with patio for his clerical tasks. During this time, not only clerical honourables, but also kings and aristocrats were illustrious guests of the Hermitage.
At the beginning of the 80s the bishop decided to sell his estate. Since then the house has been in foreign hands and was slowly converted into a Hotel with the aim to keep the special ambience.
