Hotel Can Simoneta, Capdepera, Mallorca $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Perched on the edge of rutilant cliffs and surrounded by 600 acres of farmland and pine forest, this small seaside hotel consists of Can Nofre, an old stone farmhouse, and Can Simoneta, built in 1812 to shelter an ailing priest for whom sea baths had been prescribed. The verdant grounds have a large infinity pool, an open-air living room, and private nooks for reading or sunning. The 16 roomswhich overlook fragrant meadows, a forest, and the seaare stone-floored and simple, with updated comforts such as windows with shutters and screens (a rarity in Europe) and Internet access. When you want a break from the glorious isolation, join the throngs on Platja de Canyamels, the pretty public beach at the end of the garden. 2006 Hot List
