Rafa Nadal's Palma penthouse. | Youtube Última Hora - Julián Aguirre


Rafa Nadal has served up an ace splashing out almost 4.5 million euros on a luxury penthouse apartment in the Paseo Mallorca, in central Palma.

The apartment complex is under construction at the moment.

It's been designed according to Passivhaus standards to achieve maximum energy efficiency and minimum air conditioning demand.

"The façade has sliding wooden panels with slats that work as a sunscreen that change the light and shadows in the apartments and take advantage of the sun all year round," according to the builder's website.

With this system, air conditioning and cooling needs are reduced by almost 90% compared to conventional buildings.

The apartments are luxurious to say the least but Nadal's is the champion of the block.

It has an enormous terrace with its own swimming pool with fanastic views over Palma.

The five bedroomed apartment has a total area of 4,000 square metres.

The apartment complex, just in front of the main police headquarters and a stone's throw away from the Bulletin office, will be completed shortly.

Nadal usually lives in his home town of Manacor close to his family. He has recently bought a new yacht which is moored in Porto Cristo.
