Son Menut is a rustic estate on the island of Majorca, designed for and adapted to high-standard equestrian tourism. They are located in the Son Negre countryside, 5 kilometers from Felanitx, in an area steeped in rural tradition and history. The continued preservation of these is what has helped maintain the region's rustic charm and romantic setting, including a commitment to the natural environment and local wildlife.

At Son Menut you will find a quiet, laid-back atmosphere, with authentic Mediterranean cuisine and a close and friendly service forming the heart of your Majorcan experience. Son Menut started in 1993 as a stud farm, though with every passing year they have added amenities and improved their facilities.

Today they are the proud owners of a charming country hotel, a riding school with more than 70 horses and their own breeding program, and a restaurant where they showcase their own Dexter meat and Son Menut wine. They offer various horseback activities and accommodation in modern or rustic rooms, with their mission being to enhance active, high-quality tourism on their island in a natural and friendly environment.

At Son Menut, they believe that their greatest trait is the quality and personal service they offer to guests. After more than 20 years in this sector, the entire team works day after day to uphold the essence of Son Menut and make all who visit a part of the family.

Son Menut is an open and multidisciplinary space where everyone feels at home. After renovations and improvements made to Son Menut in 2017 and 2018, they have new, beautiful, and spacious rooms with balconies and stunning views of the terrace, riding arenas, and vineyards

Rooms

Superior room

The new superior rooms (29 meters squared with a balcony) are priced similarly to the standard rooms and have a capacity of up to 4 people. They are located next to the main building and above the restaurant’s dining room. Each room is equipped with satellite TV and telephone, WI-FI, climate control, an environmentally-friendly mini-bar, a water kettle, a safety deposit box, a bathroom with a shower, towels, and amenities, and a balcony as well.

These new rooms have a modern style and are designed with an entrance dressing-room in which to change after a riding session or trail. They also have a superior room with accessibility and amenities for people with disabilities (35 meters squared and a terrace).

Standard room

The standard rooms combine a rustic aesthetic with modern comforts, remaining true to the authentic Majorcan style without compromising convenience. There are a total of 6 rooms and are available as single or double occupancies. Standard rooms are fully equipped with satellite TV and telephone, WI-FI, climate control, an environmentally friendly minibar, water kettle, safety deposit box, bathroom with bathtub, towels, and amenities, and a balcony as well. Cots can be arranged at no additional cost.

Program

The different components:

  • 1 day of Equikinetic®️

  • Every one of those 3 days, you will have a session of 3 hours.
  • This program would be combined with 3-hour flatwork lessons and 2 hours of trail.
  • You can add extra riding (lessons and short trails) on request.

Please let Son Menut know if you have requested a late check-in (after 18:00) and be aware that the Son Menut reception and restaurant close at 22:00. If they don’t know your arrival time, they will not wait around for you.

All riding programs include a guided tour around the Son Menut grounds, including its history as well as some housekeeping pointers. Tours will be given on Mondays by Francina and Pilar. All guests will also be welcomed with a reusable bottle.

28 years of history

Son Menut is first and foremost a family business, changing and growing as it passes through the generations; most recently from father to daughters. Pilar became a full-time member of the business in 2017, with Francina joining a few years later in 2019. The two sisters manage the different areas of agrotourism, playing to their respective backgrounds, training, and passions whilst supporting each other and their family's legacy.

Together, Pilar and Francina continue to strive for equine tourism of the highest quality, seamlessly combining their history with modern practice and techniques to offer a truly unique experience. Sustainability and the natural environment feature prominently in their vision of Son Menut, adding to the already long history of friendly and familiar service.

While the various agricultural components of the business, not to mention the sheer number of animals, do present their own challenges, the sisters are sure to tell you that Son Menut has many ways to bring a smile to their faces, and yours as well.
