Olivers Petit, Alcudia/Mal Pas, Mallorca
This delightful little finca is hidden away in the countryside no more than 1 km from Alcudia Old Town and just a little more to the gorgeous beaches on the west side of the Alcanada Peninsular. Almost hidden from view behind lush garden of Mediterranean plantings, little paths, water features and a colonnaded entrance taken over by a profusion of ivy and morning glory, the finca appears to have changed very little since it was first built, but take a peep inside and you'll find this simple little villa has been fitted with a modern kitchen complete with full electric cooker with ceramic hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. There are two prettily furnished bedrooms tucked away under the sloping beamed ceiling, a family bathroom, and a comfortable open plan lounge and dining room with wood burning stove and double height beamed ceiling rising to the eaves, with an open staircase ascending to a storage 'den' built above the kitchen.
All around, the 1.5 hectares of grounds provide a haven of peace. Sunbathing terraces surround the lovely 9m x 4m pool and if you can't drag yourself away in the evening, there's a barbecue to move to whichever spot you choose. However, a short walk will take you into the beautiful Old Town of Alcudia where, enclosed within its Roman Walls the shining paved traffic free streets are home to a growing number of excellent restaurants and cafes.
Just over a kilometre away sandy beaches beckon and a drive up the peninsular to watch the sun setting over the island followed by a sumptuous meal at La Vittoria is something not to be missed.

The Mallorca/Majorca region
Away from the island's bustling capital Palma and the frenetic atmosphere of its nearby "high rise" resorts, a startling change of pace and scenery takes over. Fertile fields dotted with windmills turning lazily in the breeze, give way to rolling countryside covered in olive and almond groves punctuated by vineyards and small, sun-bleached villages. Medieval monasteries and castles perch quixotically atop pine clad mountains and look out over the azure sea that encircles the island's 400 km of beautiful coastline, most of which is surprisingly untouched by signs of mass tourism and remains virtually unknown to all but a few of Mallorca's many visitors.
With fabulous white sand beaches and historic towns of Pollenca, Campanet & Inca to name but a few, placed on the north west of the island of Mallorca sits below the inspiring Tramuntana mountains. Here the island of Mallorca retains a leisurely atmosphere reminiscent of bygone days with many small villages virtually untouched by tourism, where you can find a sunny Church square to join the locals in watching the world go by.
In the south of Mallorca, pretty harbour sides and sophisticated yachting resorts hide in sandy coves protected by pine clad headlands. Inland, below splendid monasteries perched on lofty mountain tops, life still beats to the rhythm of rural Mallorcan life.
With 6 Michelin starred restaurants, bodegas producing quality Mallorca wines, walking and cycle routes and world class golf courses, Mallorca is amongst the most sophisticated destinations of the Med.
On our Mallorca website you will find seaside apartments and a selection of individual Mallorca villas for rent ranging from centuries old farmhouse to neat little Villas near the beach
Old Town Alcudia & Mal Pas, Mallorca
The Historical town of Alcudia nestles along the southern part of the bay of Pollensa, behind a mountainous headland. It is an historic town with Roman, Byzantine and Moorish influences, taking its name from the Arabic for 'the hill'.
The town of Alcudia and the unspoilt areas to its north are really the places to enjoy the sights (as opposed to the port). The walled town and the church of Sant Jaume and the Roman ruins of the Ciudad Romana (Roman town) lend Alcudia its strong historical heritage. The narrow shining paved streets are traffic free and are home to an increasing number of select restaurants and cafes.
There are several good and varying beaches on the Pollenca Bay side of the peninsular between Pollenca and Alcudia Bays, with views over the bay of Pollenca to Formentor. Take the road to the north of Old Town Alcudia (passing the Bull Ring) and follow signposts towards Bonaire and Ermita de la Victoria (where there is an excellent restaurant, above the Hermitage).
• Mal Pas – Two small sandy coves: Sant Pere – Pleasant beach with 100 meters of fine white sand, open air bar, sun beds and parasol rentals. Mostly visited by locals and Mallorcans, who have holiday homes here.
• Sant Joan – Follow the small rocky path from Sant Pere. This beach is similar to Sant Pere beach.
• S'Illiot – Keep going along the road towards La Victoria. Pretty unspoilt shingle beach with a small islet off shore and ideal for snorkelling. Nice beach bar at the top of the steps down to the beach.
• Es Morer Vermell– 200 meters of sand and rocks with low intensity tourism, less than 2 kms from Alcudia.
