This rustic house situated in the countryside in the mountains, private swimming pool. Very nice views to the mountains and the valley
Esporles just 15 minutes from the town of Palma, with all facilities and just minutes from beaches like Son Bunyola, Puerto de Valldemossa, Cala Deyà, etc. Esporles is a one of the charming villages of the island, with its stone houses, restaurants and bars with terraces, mainly in the town square. It is very nice and has many shops, banks and a wonderful local market on Saturday. Here you can go hiking, mountain biking, etc and for golf enthusiasts, the Club de Golf Son Termes is just 30 minutes.
Esporles is one of Mallorca's many typical villages, consisting basically of a main street on which everyday life is played out. It nestles in the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana de Mallorca and is 12 kilometres north west of Palma. There are plenty of interesting trips to be made in the area, including La Granja estate, which dates back to the time of the Moors, and which today houses a museum. There are also many local craftwork centres and places where visitors can discover how pastries and other Mallorcan specialities are made.
In Esporles find bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Palma, the capital cosmopolitain exciting and the Balearic Islands is a short drive of 20 minutes. For a truly peaceful and memorable holiday
The property was everything we hoped it would be spacious, cool, peaceful, excellent facilities, clean and, most significantly had a really pleasant pool and a superb terrace with extensive views across the whole southern half of the island. The small town, 10 minutes in the car, down the mountain, was unspoilt by tourism and typically Mallorcan.
The only negative comment I could think to make was that there was an absence of instructions and we met nobody either when we arrived, or left. As an example, we didnt know what to do with our rubbish. We couldnt leave it outside.....the wild goats would have got it.
This property was a safe heaven away from the touristy part of Mallorca. It was a very quiet area, the outdoor areas were suprisingly large and well kept. Also the pool was nice and clean. Out closest neighbors were the mountain goats.
The house was very spacious. Kitchen facilities were good, we cooked at the house almost every day. The house was very clean, and we had a change of towels and sheets while we were there. Best of all, the ground floor of the house was nice and cool during the day and night (which is nice in July !)
We had great expectations about the house and grounds, but they were exceeded by reality. Communications about directions and keys were easy to understand and everything was in order.
The nearest city of Esporles is a 10 minute drive away. Here you can eat simple meals for half the price of what a similar meal would cost in Palma. The local supermarket (Spar) has what you need of groceries, lots of fruits and vegetables. Palma is about 25 minutes away by car.
All in all, great property. I would surely like to come back !
Hugging the pine and olive clad Tramuntana Mountains, this authentic and charming house offers a haven of tranquility and panoramic views across the rambling hills as they tumble down to the cosmopolitan city of Palma and its sweeping bay.
The charming living-dining room with a cosy fireplace for cooler evenings, the master double bedroom with en suite shower room and the kitchen with a traditional Mallorquín stone sink, make up the ground floor. A wooden stairway leads up to a gallery which
provides access to two twin bedrooms and a further bathroom. Outside the attractive swimming pool and terrace provide the opportunity to unwind and soak up the glorious sunshine.
A 1km stroll brings you to the excellent restaurant of La Posada del Marques, where you can dine in a eautifully converted olive press and only 4km away are the restaurants and bars of laid-back Esporles.
