Property of the Week: Elements overlooks a marina from one side and mountains from the other.

Owning a property in Mallorca is one of the easiest ways to discover the beautiful Balearic Islands – and potential buyers are in luck. A new development of luxury apartments called Elements has recently been completed in the bustling town of Puerto Portals, on the southwest coast of Mallorca. Only eight miles from the Spanish island’s capital city Palma – and its international airport – the collection of apartments has been created by German developers, Domus Vivendi.
One of the properties for sale within the Elements development is a stylish two-bedroom ground-floor apartment. Spanning 1,770 sq ft of internal living space, the apartment overlooks the marina from one side and has views of Mallorca’s mountains on the other. It has been finished with a cool neutral color palette and features luxurious fixtures such as a walk-in rain shower, climate-controlled wine cabinet and a bespoke Corian washbasin.
It was important for Domus Vivendi that Elements was respectful of its location and as energy efficient as possible. For example, the building is heavily insulated throughout, whether this is within the walls or in the glass used for the windows. There is also an ecologically sound heating and cooling system, helping the apartments maintain a comfortable and regular temperature despite Mallorca’s heat.
Environmentally friendly, sustainable materials and techniques have been used throughout the construction of the development. This includes using greenery and vegetation both internally and externally as natural climate control. Natural stone has also been used for flooring, facades and internal walls. There is also a large communal garden on the site that residents can enjoy, which features a selection of native palms and plant life.
Tesidents can enjoy a wealth of communal facilities including an outdoor pool and heated indoor pool, a fully equipped gym, a spa with a relaxation area and a BBQ area within the landscaped gardens – perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining guests. The development also benefits from a concierge that can make arrangements for anything residents may require.
