Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Our family moved to Mallorca in 2001. We find the island one of the most beautiful and hospitable places in Europe. Not only nature and climate make it special. We have been very lucky as well to enjoy the richness and diversity of local traditions and cultural life.

Why the Owner Chose Mallorca:
We fell in love with the area for its proximity to everything we enjoyed about Palma. Fresh food market next door, perfect transport connections, park, not to mention shops, cafes, galleries etc. The pedestrian street is full of artists and musicians during the day and quiet after shops close. Beaches are accessible by a comfortable air-conditioned bus. For winter exercises there is a newly built swimming pool on the parallel street and bikes are available for rent in town to explore the historic part, the seaside promenade on Paseo Maritimo and the old harbour of Portixol.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
As the apartments has always been used as part of our family home they have quality furniture and are fully equipped for an enjoyable living. We still live next door and will be happy to share our local knowledge, collection of children's books and DVDs.
