In 1952, the Asquiths arrived at the Balearic Islands and built this house, turning it into what was then called “Hostal de la Torre” (The Tower Guesthouse), because of its proximity to the tower next door, which is one of the symbols of the town. It was later acquired by the famous painter Joan Ponç, a member of the art movement Dau al Set and a close friend of Dali, where he lived with his family: his muse Roser and their son Joan. This was where he created his study and where he prepared many of his most important pictorial works. Later, he left it to his son, a sculptor who, with his Swiss mother who was also a painter, renovated the house and turned it into a charming small private hotel.
It is now “Casa Nereta”, a name that comes from the Catalan word “oreneta”, which means “swallow”, because we have the pleasure of being visited by swallows that fly around the house, giving it the peace and harmony that your holidays deserve.
