From Vicente Albertí to us,
the story

The stories that endure do so because they are special - and our house is most certainly special. It starts with its protagonist, Vicente Albertí Vidal. Its origins date back to the beginning of the 18th century, when the Albertí family was granted the privilege of nobility.

Vicente Diego Albertí Vidal, our protagonist’s great-grandfather, was knighted, which gave him his own coat of arms, which to this day still presides over the balcony of our façade. He would be succeeded by generations of illustrious notaries, doctors and high military officials, who would give descent and origin to Vicente Albertí Vidal, a man rooted in literature. Master of several classical and other modern languages, he is one of Minorca’s most important literary figures, who also raised the Minorcan language to the status of a literary language.

The work of Vicente Albertí is crucial, not so much because of his original works, a facet that in the pre-Romantic era did not enjoy particular importance, but because of his adaptations and translations of works by European authors of the 18th century such as Goldoni, Metastasio and Molière. Albertí, like few others, understood the theatre as a powerful path of culture and sophistication. Our protagonist Albertí acted to Europeanise the society of Enlightenment era Mahon.

Around the year 2000 Casa Albertí was acquired by a group of friends who shared different artistic disciplines: photography, design, architecture... and they reconfigured Casa Albertí, for the first time, as a guest house. They were following the legacy of our protagonist Albertí.

In 2018 it was acquired by a French couple with strong cultural ties and an affinity with the art world, and became part of Jardí de Ses Bruixes Collection, as the second hotel in the group. Not second in rank but in concept: Casa Albertí ART Hotel was born.

Our Philosophy

Following in the footsteps of our literary figure and the group of artists who restored the house in its first version as a hotel, complementing it with vintage pieces, works of art, design classics and giving it back its personality and vocation for open space, we can only continue the tradition and artistic heritage by opening our doors to any restless, sensitive person who vibrates with art, in any of its forms.

Casa Albertí ART Hotel is like entering a gallery, attending a ‘vernissage’ or exhibition preview, participating in a piece of video art, moving to the rhythm of a DJ at sunset and commenting on and sharing the artistic scene of Mahon. In this new stage, we want you to be part of the stories that will be born and developed here, to bring your art and enjoy the art that we have offered up. Albertí is an open space, a place of exchange, where everything is possible.

Our walls and spaces are only the frame, life is in the art that hangs from them, in the ‘happenings’ that occur within our walls and that interrelate with what happens outside them.

Local and international artists: everyone has their space. And if a work is sold, another will find its way into the space it leaves. Because Casa Albertí is infinite.
