Inside the abode, expect an ocean-inspired colour scheme of deep blue, turquoise and aqua. There’s an open-plan living space that’s ideal for socialising – keep glasses topped up as conversation flows in the seating area while your group’s appointed chef cooks up a storm in the sleek kitchen. On sunny days, take your meals out on the terrace or head up to the roof deck and dine with views of the water. Once you’re refuelled and raring to go, grab your beach essentials and take the quick trip to Challaborough’s pebbled shore. Amble along the South West Coast Path for twenty-five minutes to the stunning Ayrmer Cove to find beasties in rock pools and hidden sandy spots. Return home to rinse salty wetsuits in the outdoor shower, then bundle into the snug for a movie marathon and hot cups of cocoa. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Potted cacti are dotted around the living room, where a rustic wood-burning stove keeps the desert chill away at night. A stunning, white stone breakfast bar creates plenty of prep space in the kitchen, where you can rustle up meals after days exploring the desert. After dining from the beautiful earthenware crockery, head outside to do some stargazing from the sofas. There's also a hammock strung up on the shaded porch, where you can look out over endless sky and rugged landscapes from morning until night. You'll feel perfectly at peace here, but if you'd like to add a little excitement into the mix, then the live music bars and shops of historic Pioneertown are only a ten minute drive away.

Click to book Solar Rays now: from £522 per night Reconnect with nature in this eco-friendly finca – your very own oasis in the undisturbed landscape of southern Mallorca. Surrounded by palms, orchards, and powered by renewable energy, this home sits in perfect harmony with the natural world around it. Find serenity in its airy living space, created by soaring ceilings, contemporary furniture, touches of wooden decor, and huge windows bringing in nature's beauty and light. Each bedroom opens directly onto a terrace – or a terrace with 360-degree views of sun-soaked fields, in the case of the bedroom upstairs. Start the morning with an iced coffee in the solarium, before relaxing on the veranda with a cold white wine in the afternoon. After sunset, tapas are a must for chatting around the dining table under rustic, woven lampshades. If you’d rather dip your toes in the sea than your natural saltwater swimming pool, a fifteen-minute drive will take you to various rocky and sandy beaches. Head north to your local town of Ses Salines, where you'll be enchanted by golden sandstone buildings, nearby Bronze Age settlements, and of course, bodegas, markets, and cafés. You're also local to the southernmost point of Mallorca, the Cap de Ses Salines lighthouse. Try to spot the uninhabited island of Cabrera on a cloudless day. Sleeps up to 10 | 5 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
