Great villa in a great location
Spent 10 days in this lovely villa at the start of September - 4 adults and 2 young kids. The location is perfect - open expansive countryside views on one side of the house, and nestled into a small town on the other, so you really do get the best of both worlds: quiet, private and peaceful on the open side of the house, and a few minutes walk to the amenities of the village on the other side - which was one of the reasons we chose this place. The house itself is really nice - as others have said - and was perfect for our needs. We didn't actually make use of the lounge once during our stay because the habit just became sitting out on the terraced areas or round the pool for dinner / drinks in the evening. The kids loved the pool whose orientation is great - not an infinity pool but the way it's built almost feels like it - you can reach out and touch the lemon trees as you swim up and down. Bliss! Location on the island was also ideal - easily accessible to all the places we wanted to visit - no trips for us more than 45 minutes drive - but in a peaceful town in the foothills of the mountains and a taste of Mallorcan life - not many tourists like us around the town, it seemed, compared to the intensive coastal areas a short drive away. Inca very close with all the larger shops you could want. Blessed with unseasonally hot weather so really made the most of the outdoor living the house offers. Wonderful stay and extremely helpful and welcoming host. Gracias Monserrate!
Amazing Family Holiday
We had a great stay at Es Molinet in Selva; we were greeted by the owners on arrival who provided us with sufficient information such that our stay was enjoyable. The owners took their leave fairly quickly after showing us round and checked on our stay through text / 1 visit during our stay, which was ideal. The villa was very clean with everything working as it should - the electronic gates and external lighting providing an additional sense of security while being a little out of the way, but still attached to the main village. Air con and internet access was available while the villa still maintained its traditional style, highlights for us all were the pool, table tennis and grounds containing lemon, lime, fig, almond, pear, pomegranate trees. Wildlife aplenty with hoopoes and kites along with more traditional residents. We had a car for the duration of our stay which was to suit us - it may not be a requirement for everyone, as most nights were spent in Selva which has a couple of good eateries and quiet places for a drink before returning to relax by the pool for a night cap & take in the last of the ambience. There is a supermarket, bike hire and pharmacy within a couple of minutes walk. It's worth taking a shortcut (as the crow flies) to the church at the top of the village and taking in some of the beautiful streets and residencies.
We were a family of 5 and the house suited us perfectly - really the pictures on the site do not do the house,pool or the views justice - it is superb. Ample seating outside for relaxing or dining while making great use of the views - we' would highly recommend this villa if you are looking for a spot relaxation.
Thank you very much for you words
We are very happy you enjoy so much
When you want you can come back
Our very own little bit of Spanish life.....buena vida
Just returned after spending 10 days in Selva with our 2 boys (13 & 16yrs). A great villa for the outdoor living we craved. With the pool......perfect size for us to have fun in and also relax, the BBQ area where we enjoyed numerous meals and the porch area where we relaxed in the evenings reading on the rocking chairs or playing cards around the table. Great views across the valley/orchards during the day to enjoy and come the evening sitting under the night sky star gazing.
We made good use of the table tennis and basketball hoop in the cooler parts of the day. There were bikes to use but we didn't take advatage of these as temps were a bit too hot for us.
The villa is lovely, furnished as you'd expect for a holiday home. Beds were not the comfiest but they never are compared to the ones you leave behind at home so took a couple of nights to get used to. AC available which we used some nights to cool the bedrooms. Bathrooms all nice and airy with instant hot water.
Selva itself is lovely with some great little streets to explore leading up to the church and square. We had some great meals at the local restaurants all within walking distance. Miceli, Es Forn Cafe and Foc I Caliu all highly recommended. Thank you to Monserrate for helping us get a table at Miceli. There is a bakery and 2 small supermarkets within 5 mins walking distance which we made use of. If you want to experience the Spanish way of life this is the place to do it.
Great loaction as only 30 mins from Palma to the south and 35 mins away from Alcudia, Pollensa to the north and minutes away from some interesting drives in the mountains.
Was great talking to Monserrate and his wife in my broken Spanish. They made us very welcome and gave us some great tips of where to go. Nothing was ever to much for them and was great to be able to get hold of them if needed or for advice.
Remember if we win the lottey we'll be back to make an offer :)
Gracias a ambos por todo y hasta luego amigos :)
Thanks you very much for your words .
We are very happy you stay at home, you can come back when you want
You are a fantastic guest
Beautiful setting, great location for outdoor recreation and private, yet on the edge of the village
The whole holiday was great from start to finish. The house is located on the edge of Selva, with great walking access to the local shops and restaurants. The house itself is as pictured. It has all the necessary kitchen equipment for a holiday house as well as a dishwasher and laundry facilities. We got the AC added but it is not necessary every night, the house is very cool and airy. You will never get tired of the view, and we spent many a night BBQing and just appreciating the silence enjoying a drink. There's plenty of room to entertain or just enjoy with your partner. During the day you are well located for hiking and biking, and its only 30 minutes drive to Palma or likewise the north coast, and you have the pool to come back to! The owners were very respectful of our privacy. We had the house for a month, and they would visit once a week to water the grounds and check the pool. We made use of the cleaner who was very reasonable and changed the linens and cleaned all the communal areas. We would defiantly recommend this property! Thank you.
Lots of space, great pool, peaceful setting.
We paid €1500 for last week and our family of four (2 adults and two teenagers) had a very, very relaxing time.
The villa surrounds are incredibly spacious - separate large table to eat around by the huge BBQ, large pool with large covered area adjacent -essential refuge from the midday sun for our week- plenty of sun-loungers and chairs. Breakfasts were eaten on the covered veranda area in front of the main house with it's great views of the orchard and far away hills.
Car hire is essential I think - It's about 35-40mins drive from the airport - you are handily located for the north eastern towns and beaches. Selva is a residential town -with a few bars and restaurants. We only ate out once there - At 'Forno' pizzas and Estella beer at €2 a large glass hit the spot well. As we were on the outskirts and surrounded 180degrees by farmland we felt very secluded and didn't feel like we were a bother to any of the locals.
Monserrat and his wife were very welcoming and allowed us to host other friends who visited us during our stay. They were easy and available for contact - no doubt helped by our fluent Spanish speaking daughter. We were visited once for pool maintenance, which was totally appropriate. There is plenty of gear there for scooping out 'suicide wasps' and we were shown how to use the automatic pool cleaner which is a doddle. We were encouraged to use 'as much fruit from the orchard' as we wanted -which includes delicious figs, peaches, pears, oranges and lemons.
The rooms were spacious - shame there's only 3 double rooms really for a villa this size. Look out in the showers the water pressure is phenomenal! :-) The kitchen facilities were totally adequate for our needs - we noted the new crockery. There was a half size dish washer - used once. Our daughter made some great 'home-grown' lemonade with the juicer as well! We didn't use the TV facilities at all.
Make no mistake this is a fantastic place to rent and we are already talking about coming back. If we are going to be hyper-critical then -- We didn't like the bedding - as there's a plastic-type under-sheet, which in this heat makes you sweat A LOT(!) - For the price we would have liked some simple things provided e.g. more plastic bin sacks, basic cleaning stuff like dish cloths and seven dish washer tablets (only one supplied)?... Air conditioning is extra at €10/day - even during our week we only used it for one day.
All in all a fantastic find. A Great stay.
Beautiful and tranquil
When we arrived at Monserrate's house we knew we had lucked out. It is much better than the photos make out. The house was really clean, but it is the setting that makes it so special. Monserrate and his family welcomed us when we arrived and were really helpful and friendly throughout our stay. We went with our 2 kids - 6 and 9, as well as gran (80!). The layout of the house really suited us. Being walking distance of a cafe/bar and shops was a bonus. As we live and work in London this was just what we were looking for - a peaceful retreat to hang out and chill out. For the price we think it provided everything you need and more. We agree about the double bed upstairs - but got used to it! That is the only thing we would change. We would highly recommend this beautiful house and surroundings.
