TURMADÈN DES CAPITÀ
A small ecological agrotourism in Menorca. Located in the heart of the island, between the towns of Alaior and Es Mercadal, Turmadèn is the perfect refuge for nature lovers, where comfort, style and character are mixed with passion and commitment to the environment.
Turmadèn is an Arabic name that means The Mine Hill, in reference to an old abandoned mine possibly from Roman times. There is documentation on the Turmadèn estate, part of our family heritage for many generations, dating from the beginning of the fourteenth century. Since 2003 we have been reclaiming its agrarian activity, which had been abandoned in 1996. We have opted for organic production because it is important to take care of both health and land. We currently produce organic meat and honey for market, and other products to supply the hotel. Responsible use of water and energy have been two pillars in our project. The water is purified in an ecological way and the energy for heating and hot running water is produced at the farm itself. Located in the heart of the island, between the villages of Alaior and Es Mercadal, Turmadèn is the perfect refuge for nature lovers, where comfort, style and character are mixed with passion and a commitment to the environment.
In our small hotel we have a magnificent suite and five double rooms restored and decorated with delicacy and care. We have combined bioconstruction criteria with the use of traditional materials, thus preserving the island’s own character.
A small eco friendly hotel
In 2003, we began the recovery of Turmadèn des Capità, part of our family heritage. We opted for a new agrarian project based on organic farming, combined with a small rural hotel with the objective of developing an activity committed to the environment and our identity.
We are a charming hotel
Rafel and my children Blai and Ada live on the farm year-round. With the help of our team, we seek to make you feel at home during your stay and enjoy our wonderful island. We like nature and living in harmony with the environment, and this is where we fulfill our dream, sharing it with you.
