The German F1 legend, who suffered catastrophic brain damage in a skiing accident in 2013, is currently receiving treatment at his £6.4million mansion on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. But his wife Corinna, 53, has reportedly secured a £2.3million villa plot in the Spanish town of Port Andratx in Mallorca.
Schumacher, whose condition remains a mystery, reportedly visited the new villa by helicopter, according to the Sun.
German magazine Die Bunte reports that Schumacher was also flown in to view the 54,000 square meter plot, which will become the family’s winter home.
Die Bunte has published a preview of the front page feature titled ‘Corinna Schumacher: Your New Life in Mallorca’, which states that Corinna has ‘big plans on the sunny island’ where she hopes to have the ‘best medical care’ for her. Schumacher who can be with his family “as much as possible”.
Meanwhile, the land will also be used as a horse ranch as Corinna and their 25-year-old daughter Gina-Marie are both avid equestrians, with horses on their estates in Texas and Switzerland.
Gina-Maria’s boyfriend, Iain Bethke, is also a horseman.
The villa is currently full of dilapidated buildings and almond trees and is believed to have been used to ‘breed and ride horses’.
