Rockstars in Formentera…


Bob Dylan found this remote Windmill in La Mola Formentera and made it his home in the sixties . It is said that he found inspiration and peace in this spiritual retreat that influenced his song writing. He does not own it anymore .
The Island is also where Chris Rea is said to have been inspired to compose his hit “On the Beach” while he was earning some cash by singing in the few bars and hotels in Formentera.If you’re well-schooled in rock and roll you’ll recognise the windmill’s silhouette from the cover of Pink Floyd’s More album.

Can you fall in love?... Can you fall in love with an island? Yes you can!!! I did... with Formentera... Because Formentera is like a hidden treasure, beautiful and magical as a shining naked mermaid. Follow me but ... keep it secret! You only discover the nature of that mystical Lady with mindful silence and tender loving admiration... Johan (
