Villa Maria, is a purpose built villa, offering a real home from home experience. Located in an exclusive development of just five architect designed holiday homes, the villa is just a few hundred yards from the famous Blue Flag rated beach of Cala Murada.
Located in an exclusive area of the resort, on a tree lined avenue, the villa boasts a large, enclosed rear garden, with plenty of space for al fresco dining, and sunbathing by the large 8m x 4m private pool.
Inside the property is tastefully furnished to a high standard, and features a large, light and airy, open plan living area, with French doors out onto the pool terrace from the lounge, dining area, and kitchen.
The lounge area, is not only air conditioned, but also features a log burner, ideal for romantic winter breaks. Furnished with modern, but comfortable leather sofas, the lounge is fully equipped with a large flat screen TV, and full satellite TV system.
The dining area, has a large extendible table, which comfortably seats the whole family, and is conveniently located next to the large kitchen, and adjacent to the pool terrace.
The villa's bespoke designer kitchen, comes fully equipped, with dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, and a fully automatic coffee machine, and is finished off with solid granite worktops, for that added luxury feel. The washing machine, and fridge freezer, are conveniently located, but hidden from view in the adjacent pantry.
Also on the ground floor is a large double en suite bedroom, with king size bed, and large walk in shower, and a separate family cloakroom
On the first floor you will find the luxurious master suite, featuring a dressing area, and large en-suite with walk in shower. The master suite has French doors, out onto a large balcony overlooking the garden, and protected woodland behind the villa.
Also on the first floor, is a family bathroom with bath and shower, and two twin bedrooms.
The fabulous Vall d'Or 18 hole par 71 golf course is just a 10 min drive away (8km) on the road towards Cala d'Or. The course (5,539m long from white tees) combines 2 completely different landscapes for the front and back nine. The front nine has rolling fairways surrounded by a forest of pine almond and olive trees. The back nine has wider and more uneven fairways playing down towards the coast road. The golf course is demanding yet entertaining with magnificent views of the coastline. The clubhouse was opened in 1999 and is located on top of a hill. Even non golfers (who are most welcome) can enjoy the stunning views of Porto Colom and Cala d'or from the spectacular canopied sun terrace. A cold beer & club sandwich whilst enjoying the panoramic view is highly recommended. The restaurant, bar and locker rooms offer everything a golfer could wish for. The std.18 Hole Green-fee is around 90 euros (various discounts available).There are also several other good courses in the locality
The two storey villa has not been fully adapted to UK disability building regulations, however, the provision of a ground floor bedroom and bathroom with walk in / wheel in shower, and only one small step from the front driveway to the front door, means the villa should be able to accommodate the needs of most people. The ground floor is open plan with large french doors to the rear, with sufficient open space for even the largest wheelchair to navigate the house safely & easily. An extra wide front doorway should facilitate alternative wheelchair access if required (although the one shallow step to the front porch does not have a ramp).
Small supermarket selling English papers, fresh bread milk, etc can be found a minutes walk from the villa, going down towards the beach, they are open from 8am-1pm and again from 4pm-8pm, there is a lovely little restaurant alongside. On a Thursday there is a small market at the beachfront from 9am-1pm they have fresh produce, fruit, olives, cheese, clothes hand made gifts, and plants. Further round into the village you will find a larger supermarket, along with restaurants and banks. There are so many beautiful places to discover on the island, some close to Casa Rosada include:-The caves of Drach and the caves of Hams, with their underground lakes and light shows- Mallorca's largest pearl factory at Manacor where you can see the pearls being made into jewellery and a shop where you can purchase them- Discover the quaint fishing village of Porto Cristo- Sit by the harbour and have a drink or a meal at Porto Colom-Why not take a trip on the Starfish boat which you can catch at Porto Colom or one of the many other beautiful coves it visits right down to Cala d'Or and beyond to Cala Mondrego and Cala Figuera (Check the timetable and stop off for an hour or so at one and return on a later boat).
