Traditionally these grand houses were the nucleus of village life until the middle of the 20th century when agriculture and cattle raising were the two main occupations of the residents.Today, the village remains unspoilt, with its picturesque winding roads. It is still a tranquil spot. There are a few small bars and restaurants serving traditional Mallorcan fayre and some of the best Tapas on the island. The village has many picture postcard views.

The name Puigpunyent comes from the Latin meaning of Pointed Peak after the ever present Galatzo Mountain whose magnificent peak sits 1035 metres above sea level and dominates the skyline in this part of the Island.
The Sa Vinya estate is estimated to date back over 200 years and is steeped in history. It has been loveingly restored from an old farm, keeping many of the original features such as parts of the olive press, now a wonderful decorative feature but once the hub of this impressive home.
