Sir Richard Branson has listed his Mallorca holiday property with The Villa Collective, opening the doors of his 680 acre estate to holiday makers.

Named Sa Punta De S'Aguila, the main house sits on the north coast of the island of Palma.

Sa Punta De S’Aguila literally translates as ‘Eagle’s Point’, and is perched high above the western coastline, with spectacular sea and mountain views.

The estate is a short drive away from the village of Banyalbufar in an unspoilt part of the island known as ‘authentic Mallorca’. The land also includes two further cottages, Sa Terra Rotja and Villa Son Bonlaguret, available to rent separately. Sa Punta De S’Aguila and the two other villas on the estate share a tennis court (with rackets and balls provided).

The five-bedroom Sa Punta De S'Aguila can sleep up to 12 guests and comes with 15-metre-long heated private swimming pool, table tennis and games, stunning sea views and plenty of sun loungers and parasols on the surrounding terrace.

The €22,375 - €32,075 per week price also includes all food and drink (including wines and spirits). There's a continental breakfast prepared for all of the guests every morning, as well as lunch and a three-course dinner every day.

The interiors feature traditional Mallorca style, with exposed stone walls, oak beams and terracotta-tiled floors.

But despite lots of period details and historic charm (parts of the buildings date back to the 13th century), the interiors feel modern too.

Outside there's a covered al fresco dining area and relaxing outdoor lounge with sweeping sea views.

The second villa on this property is Villa Son Bonlaguret (€13,425 - €19,245 per week), and features very similar interiors – plus a a 13th-century turret, converted into a unique bedroom.

Each of the bedrooms blends original beams and terracotta floors with modern furnishings.

The interiors are modern rustic, and contrast original stone with modern fittings, including his 'n' hers sinks, freestanding baths and walk-in showers.

The villa features simple but chic interiors, in keeping with the location and the 13th century history of the property.

Aside from comfy living areas there's a media room too.

The rustic interiors feature arched doorways, indoor Juliette balconies, exposed stone walls, simple chandeliers and lots of woven, wicker furniture.

The theme continues outside, where wicker chairs frame an alfresco dining table.

The villa comes with it's own heated outdoor pool, decorated with pretty parasols and sun beds.

There's an outdoor grill area as well as several covered outdoor 'chill' zones.

And finally, you can rent nearby Sa Terra Rotja (€17,900 - €25,660 per week) too, which has room for eight guests.

This property also comes with it's own heated outdoor pool, covered outdoor al fresco dining terrace, plus it's walking distance to the beach.

There's a villa concierge for each of the villas to help with everything from airport transfers to sailing trips, plus there’s daily housekeeping and pool service.
