A gorgeous, newly built stone villa, set in magnificent gardens, with large sweeps of lawn charmingly dotted with flowers and trees, all overlooking a delightful semi rural view of the northern central Majorcan countryside. It has a large shady terrace, and being in an elevated position, is refreshed with balmy cool breezes. At night the lit up church from the neighbouring village lends a romantic, medieval atmosphere. The villa consists of 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a well appointed kitchen, with open plan dining and living area, and extra sleeping available on the mezzanine floor over the kitchen. The style of the villa is rustic, with high ceilings and wood beams. The outdoor swimming pool is nestled invitingly in paved stone surroundings, which flow on from the terrace and built-in barbecue, and leads onto the lovely garden area. The villa is a short stroll from the typical Majorcan village of Maria de la Salut, which is well away from the mainstream tourism.
Unspoilt Mallorca: Northern central Mallorca is rural, unspoilt, and untouched by mass tourism. Walk from the villa into the tiny village of Maria de la Salut, and you will only see local Majorcans, giving you a friendly smile as they go about their business. Join them in the evenings as they gather in the village square, old people and young families, enjoying the cool of the evening, for a feeling of stepping back into time. The village has 3 or 4 very good restaurants, where you can sample the excellent local Majorcan cuisine, along with international dishes. In August, there is a night market every Friday night, selling locally made produce. On the last Friday in August, there is a special medieval fair, guaranteeing entertainment for all the family. From the villa is a lovely view right across the low rolling countryside, and in the distance, the jagged hills which enfold Colonia San Pedro, a charming and unspoilt fishing village - also worth a visit for swimming, and panoramic coastal views.
Sineu - neighbouring town: Just 6km away, and with a daily bus service, is the town of Sineu. This is a much larger village, and has a good variety of shopping, bars, cafes, and many excellent restaurants. However, it is best known for its farmer´s market every Wednesday morning. Here, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables, clothing, shoes, and handicrafts, you can find antiques,and a variety of live animals for sale, including sheep, horses, donkeys, chickens, and even puppies and kittens! It makes for a very pleasant morning, and the market winds through the whole town, which in itself is an architectural pleasure. Sineu also connects by train to Inca (famous for shoes and leather produce) and onto Palma, the capital.
The main bedroom is furnished with a king sized double bed, (1.80m x 2m) with a dark wood headboard, a dressing table with mirror, and a built in wardrobe. This room has double French doors which open out onto the terrace, with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside. The 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds with wrought iron bedheads, built in wardrobe, a dressing table with a mirror, and a bedside cabinet. The room has a window with views over the countryside towards the village. The 3rd sleeping area is a mezzanine floor with access from the kitchen/dining area. The entire floor area is wood parquet, and on this is a futon style mattress, 1.50m by 2m. (All the beds are 2m long)...moreless

'Far from the madding crowd' would sum up this beautiful villa. It is located on the edge of the small rural village of Maria de la Salut - where life is still based on local traditions, not mass tourism!
The village is a 5min walk from the finca, and has small locally run grocers and bakeries etc. for daily provisions. There are 2 or 3 good restaurants, and more in the neighbouring village of Sineu, 6km away, which is full of character. Here there is a very popular farmer's market every Wednesday morning.
The nearest beach is the Bay of Alcudia - a 12km long beach with pristine white sand, with the popular beach resorts of Ca'n Picafort (15 mins) and Puerto Alcudia (25 mins) drive away.
Near the finca (about 400 mts), there is a small blockwork factory. Although nearly defunct, a low background noise may occasionally be heard from this site. It is almost completely hidden, and does not detract from the wonderful views from the finca, or disturb the countryside peace and quiet.
Other Activities: rambling, bird watching, cycling
