“Thank you so much for having us for the 3rd time. This space is getting more like home for us in November. We came here with so much inner trouble and are so grateful for having you to chat to and laugh with. This space gave us new power to take the upcoming changes with new perspectives! See you next year!!”

Silvana has been a haven of peace and recuperation for many different guests. Some have been bereaved, some recovering from serious illness, some stressed and exhausted and others in need of some clarity and perspective. Silvana is far away from the stress and fast pace of life. You will have personal emotional and spiritual support from Jacqueline, with 20 years experience as a holistic therapist, and Martin, a yoga teacher and personal trainer.
There is a self-contained apartment which can be configured with one, two or three double/twin bedrooms. It has a fully-equipped kitchen and an open-plan lounge leading out to a sunny private terrace. There’s a large bathroom with a deluxe bathtub. Large saltwater pool with spectacular mountain views.
Our extensive gardens are what make Silvana so unique.
We have over 20,000m2 of organic land with a rich diversity of flora including trees and shrubs seldom found in Mallorca. The Torrente Massanella runs along the north boundary, its riverbanks providing the ideal habitat for abundant birdlife.
We are now offering a special “sleeping under the stars” experience in our 5m wide canvas geodesic dome tent, set in a cluster of trees 30m from the swimming pool. Here you have a private place to sit on your own wooden deck surrounded by wild flower meadows, a sheltered camping kitchen with running wáter and a gas stove. In the geodome there is a comfortable double bed, chairs and table, bedside lamp and sockets for charging. Private bathroom for geodome dwellers located in the house.
Perfect for small, intimate groups, Silvana feels like a home away from home with the hosts being an integral part of the experience. The studio is ideal for Yoga, Pilates, dance/movement or gentle exercise, Yoga equipment provided. Holistic therapies, guided mountain walks and workshops can be added, if required.
An excellent chef, living locally, can prepare food for groups. Delicious vegetarian and vegan, as well as seafood, dishes. There is plenty of room to eat outside in Summer on the main terrace or in the dining room inside the main house.
We have our own deep spring water source. Saltwater swimming pool. We don't use herbicides or pesticides. Land planted and managed on permaculture principles. Food waste composted.
