Why Rafael Coll chose Selva
"Can Rafael 'is a typical old Mallorcan house, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Decorated in a typical Mallorcan style, some of the furniture are from nineteenth century. There is central heating for the cooler and air conditioning on the first floor for the summer months. Small size and located in the quiet village of Selva, near the square and the church. Far from the mass tourism routes the village is on top of a hill in the center of the island and you can enjoy beautiful views of the plains of Mallorca from the terrace of the house or visit the typical Majorcan restaurants and bars. The house is the ideal starting point for car excursions or long walks to discover the surrounding of Selva, trekking or hiking in the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana.Also it is ideal as a base for cycling routes. In the nearby town of Inca, there are excellent shops with a large weekly market in the city center on Thursdays and some typical restaurants to sample Majorcan cuisine. From Inca, the capital, Palma, is easily accessible by train, from where you can take the tourist train to Soller through the mountains.

Cosy House - Super location!
Traditional Spanish house with good space, nice pool area and lovely terrasse. The landlord was very kind and responded immediately to our requests. Selva is a quite village with shops for daily needs and good restaurants and cafés. For bike cycles entusiasts this is the ideal place! We would like to return to this house another time!
Thank you very much.
Fabulous house in the perfect location
We planned to stay in Selva to attend my niece's wedding in the town so wanted a property that was in the right location, had a pool and space for 5 of us to stay - Can Rafael ticked all the boxes and more.
The house is huge, a wonderful entrance hall with high ceilings, leading one way to a small lounge with full bathroom just off, the other to a dining room and into the kitchen (well stocked as we did plenty of cooking). However, the main draw is once you step outside to the wonderful terrace - a covered area with seating leading to another covered dining area then onto a fantastic pool with sun beds all around. Then there is the view - stretching out south across the island, simply stunning.
The bedrooms are all good sizes, 2 upstairs with air con units, 2 others upstairs benefit from air con in a further lounge upstairs (the twin down stairs doesn't have A/C so may get a bit warm), one twin is en suite, 2 other bathrooms upstairs so plenty of room for families. The beds were comfortable enough and each room had plenty of storage for clothes.
The house is on a side road approx 50m from the town square with 2 restaurants within a minute's walk (1 literally next door), plus a bank and 2 further bars / restaurants around the square. There is a small supermarket a short drive the other side of town (5-10 walk) for basic supplies so everything is within walking distance which puts the house in an ideal position (there is also a huge garage 20m from the front door for those with a car, ideal as it keeps the sun off and keeps the car cool).
1 minor point, there is no "welcome pack" (milk, bread, wine etc) which we have seen at similar properties across Europe and a few more towels would be beneficial but we have contacted Rafael and he will provide these going forward.
All in all, this is a wonderful property, particularly if you fill all the beds as it then makes it VERY good value for money and one we expect we'll return to.
Thank you very much.
Our second time in this house, and we want to come back in two years! We are a family of 10 people, from 13 to 70 years, and we all love this house, and the little village of Selva!
Very nice owner!
I would love to keep the house a secret
Wonderful situated house for those who wishes to experience the quiet Mallorca, stunning view and perfect access to race Mallorca's mountains on bike. I simply love this house and its outdoor surroundings - but I would prefer to keep this house a secret of my own!!
Raphael is a very kind and helpfull host.
If I had to find anything to complain about - perhaps the kitchen could do well with a thorough cleaning.
We hope to come back :O)
Thank you very much. Regarding the kitchen just this week the cleaning lady had a problem and was promptly replaced. We felt that the kitchen was not entirely to your liking. We will put more vigilance so that this does not happen again.
3rd stay at this fantastic, well appointed property. Pool has been upgraded and is a wonderful bonus to any stay. Almost an infinity pool with fantastic views across the island and Inca. Accommodation is extensive and beautifully furnished. Has a garage close by which is essential to avoid passing vehicle damage overnight in the narrow streets. Thoroughly recommend.
