THE HISTORY OF THE LUXURY-HOTEL CASTELL SON CLARET
A HOTEL WITH HISTORY
The Castell’s first official mention in 1450 describes five separate properties. When Don Gabriel Claret owned the estate in the late 1800’s, he decided to unite all these properties into one estate – Castell Son Claret – which remains at its current size of 132 ha. 100 years later, stables and smaller buildings were added; the Castell’s current blue print, as well as its iconic façade, was then established. After the affectionate restoration and reconstruction by its owners Christine and Klaus-Michael Kühne, the Castell was opened as a luxury hotel in May 2013.
