Go ahead and block out your calendar—you'll want to extend your stay in this rosy-hued holiday rental.

Sited in an almond grove and surrounded by the sea, this striking getaway home on the island of Mallorca was originally designed by John Pawson in collaboration with his then-partner Claudio Silverstrin. Grand in scale, yet minimalist and restrained in its design, the home's clean, sharp geometry evokes a modern take on classical forms.

The 6,000-square-foot home is set over 30 acres of expansive private gardens and features five bedrooms, accommodating up to 11 people. Formerly a family vacation home, this Mallorcan villa—also known as The Neuendorf House—is now available to rent via BoutiqueHomes.

This Mallorcan villa was Pawson's firm's first full architectural project. It was originally built for German art dealers, who Pawson had met by chance on an Italian beach. Acclaimed for his minimalism, this beautiful abode is no different.
