From the heart of the Mediterranean

Our Story

In 2004 Emma Bernbach and Tommy Carter left their busy lives in New York for the picturesque hamlet of Biniaraix, nestled in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains on the north coast of the Mediterranean paradise of Mallorca. They took over the beautiful old finca, Cas Fiols, bought by Emma’s grandparents in 1959 , wanting to raise a family surrounded by the mountains, olive and citrus groves and stunning natural beauty that make this area a UNESCO world heritage site.

The old house is now a vacation home for weekly stays and they have developed the grounds, planting more citrus and adding eucalyptus and mulberry, linking Cas Fiols to the historic tradition of citrus production and silk making in the Soller valley.

In 2017 Tommy planted a vineyard which now includes grenache, monastrell, syrah, pinot noir and viognier grape varieties, and produces delicious naturally fermented non filtered wine for guests and friends.
One winter, Emma and her artistic daughter started a project to make home made soap as a gift for guests staying at Cas Fiols. Using homemade essential oils and fresh lavender, lemons, eucalyptus and mint from their garden, they base the soap on local Soller olive oil and add coconut oil to bring out the lather. The soaps’ reputation spread, boutique hotels and private villa owners began to place orders and Cas Fiols Living was born.

In 2019 Emma started making 100% natural anti mosquito spray as she and their youngest both suffered allergic reactions to the new Tiger variety mosquito. Lucas named it Bug Screen at five years old when confused between sunscreen and bug spray. It smells delicious, it’s really effective and is now used all over the world.

All products are 100% natural and hand made at Cas Fiols.

Our Story

This local natural product is 100% handmade. It originated in Biniaraix, a small hamlet tucked away in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains. There, multi-talented Emma Bernbach Carter nd her family live in a finca which her grandparents bought bak in 1959.

Together with her artistic daughter, on a whim, she started making her own soap with regional ingredients. The family project turned out to be a successful business idea.

Using fresh lavender, lemons, eucalyptus and mint from her own garden for the fragrances, she bases the soap on local olive oil, adds coconut oil to bring out the lather and mixes in a few other ingredients, including essential oils. Enjoy!
