Only ten minutes drive from historic, cosmopolitan Palma, yet we are deep in stunning countryside. Nestling below the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage area of outstanding natural beauty, where the only sounds you will hear other than the odd tractor are birdsong and soft, tinkling sheep-bells.
Extremely spacious, high quality and private single-storey guest cottage for one or two guests next to the pine plantation on our small estate. For a larger party, the second adjoining casita provides additional accomodation at extra cost. We do not rent the two casitas out to separate parties so if your rent only the main casita you will not be sharing with other guests. We and our friends sometimes use the 10 x 5 metre salt pool but usually you will have it to yourselves. Unwind in the peaceful, romantic and natural environment with panoramic views of surrounding hills. Local walking and cycling is some of the best on the island. A ten minute stroll takes you to the local bar/restaurant offering home-cooked country cuisine. From there a bus runs every 15 minutes into Palma with its stunning historical centre, markets, galleries, superb shopping, restaurants and a vibrant night-life. Valdemosa, Deja and sandy beaches are a short journey away. Please request our e-brochure with photographs.
Outside the casita is a large, secluded and private terrace with table, chairs and sun-loungers. Horizontal UV-filtering sun sails cover the entire area, providing welcome shade.
There is a large televison with UK satellite and spanish channels with a very large collection of films including recent releases, plus free wi-fi .
We are always here to help you: We speak Spanish, English and a little French should you have any problems or simply want advice to ensure you enjoy a great holiday.
Please note the rate shown is for the main casita which accomodates 2 guests: the additional casita for 1 or 2 more is available at extra cost. From November to March, there is a flat €50 per week charge for the effective and efficient electric radiators which supplement the cosy log fire. Short-term rentals are inclusive but for longer term electricty is metered and charged at cost.
DISCOUNTS for families:
The charge for children between 5 and 12 years is 50% of the adult rate and for infants there is no charge. These discounts are not included in the automatic quote above so when you inquire please mention the age of any children so we can make the correct adjustment. The two casitas have their own entrance doors separated by about 20m but are connected by intercom.
In order to fully comply with local laws, this is let on a short-term contract hence no additional touristic services such as daily maid service are available.
