Norbert Amthor is originally from Germany and lives and works on a beautiful finca in the southwest of Mallorca. He and his wife Christiane are the welcoming hosts of the rural Finca Hotel Can Estades, located in the countryside near the village of Calvià.
Norbert talks about the challenges of the first finca he bought on the island, explains how he came to be running a rural hotel, and has some advice for anyone wanting to move to Mallorca. You’ll also hear him reveal how he met his wife, what they enjoy about the island’s capital, Palma de Mallorca, and the pastime he loves that he took up only at the age of 59.
