Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Casa de Almendras (House of Almonds) is a stunning 4 bedroom villa, set in a large almond grove, which forms part of the property, offering a superb rural retreat with breathtaking panoramic views, taking in the quaint village of Santa Margalida with its beautiful night-lit church. Despite its private and tranquil location, Casa de Almendras is only a 10 minute drive from the lovely beach resort of Ca’n Picafort, with its many and varied shops and its sweeping sandy beach lined with bars and restaurants. The villa is also only a short drive away from other popular destinations in the delightful North East of Mallorca such as Alcudia, Pollença, Port de Pollença and Cala San Vicente.
Indoors, the Villa comprises a fully equipped, luxury kitchen (with separate laundry room), superb dining room and spacious living room, with a double bedroom and bathroom also on the ground floor. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with its own en suite bathroom and private balcony and one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, each with en suite shower rooms and sharing a large south facing balcony. All bedrooms are air conditioned.
Outside there is a large covered terrace for dining al fresco, or just keeping out of the hot sun. The enclosed gardens are beautifully landscaped with extensive lawns, flowering shrubs, almond, olive and fruit trees, a 10m x 5m swimming pool with Roman steps and a traditional stone barbecue.
