We have been following the Domaines de Fontenille for a while.  From spotting their first opening in Provence, to reviewing it not long after to having conversation with them about the newly opened Les Hortensias in Hossegor where my brother lives.

They now have opened two fincas on more than 300 ha of land: Santa Ponsa and Torre Vella.  Both fincas are true to the local architecture and style of white walls with terracotta.  You can read more in my post about new Menorca hotels
