Villa S'Alqueria, Campanet, Mallorca (Majorca)

In a tiny hamlet of half a dozen houses perched on the hillside 2km from Campanet, Villa S'Alqueria makes a good first impression with its electronic wrought iron gates and gravel driveway. This good impression soon changes to sensational, when you open the kitchen door to the rear terrace and get your first glimpse of the pool, framed by an exquisite backdrop of countryside and the impressive Tramuntana Mountains.

At ground floor level, the spacious kitchen, overlooking the superb pool and gardens, comes complete with a walk in pantry, a fireplace and a farmhouse dining table. The cooks domain is nicely finished with attractive tiled work surfaces and well equipped with a sizeable fridge freezer, full gas cooker, microwave oven and dishwasher.

A door from the kitchen opens on to a partially covered rear terrace, where there is a very conveniently located purpose built barbecue area and a cobble sun terrace fringed by pretty flowered borders and lovely tree shaded gardens. From the patio, a couple of steps lead up to the superb 10m x 4.5m pool with Roman steps into the shallow end . Dwarf palms and almond trees and a remarkably luxuriant lawn fringe one side of the swimming pool and here you will also find a convenient outside shower and a fragrant lemon tree.

At first floor level is a comfortable sitting room with sofas and easy chairs.

There's also a fireplace and large picture windows with typical Mallorca rural views towards Campanet.

To the rear, with views over the pool towards the mountains are a double bedroom with a very dapper en-suite full bathroom whilst a second double bedroom and a twin bedroom, which has views into the old courtyard, share a family bathroom.

At ground floor level, via a corridor from the kitchen, is a small single bedroom with its own door providing a short cut to the pool and an adjoining shower room .

The pool has a depth of 1m at the shallow end and 2m at the deep end.

The cost of logs and/or use of the electric central heating, is payable locally direct to the owner.

The Balearic Islands 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

Campanet

Campanet & Buger, Mallorca

Situated on the edge of the green and wooded foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains, the village of Campanet's one claim to fame is its amazing limestone caves, said to house the longest stalactite in the world! It also makes a good starting point for an exhilarating drive to the mountain top Monastery at Lluc via the picturesque village of Caimari.

Campanet has no less than three bakeries, as well as a well-stocked supermarket and a delicatessen. The sunny church square has a number of simple bars and small shops and it's a pleasant spot to linger over a morning coffee and sugary ensaimada before heading off for the day. Of an evening there are also two or three bars that serve authentic tapas or simple meals, but the village has surprisingly remained a peaceful backwater, virtually untouched by tourism.

Perched twin like atop a neighbouring hill and just 5 mins drive away, Buger (pronounced Boohair) is Mallorca's smallest municipality and holiday accommodation is still rare. Having received enthusiastic feedback about this drowsy little town from customers staying nearby, we were delighted to be offered a house on the outskirts. In the shady streets surrounding its magnificent church, life continues at a measured pace, much as it was before Mallorca became a holiday destination but a bank, post office, a small weekly market, minimarket, three simple café/bars, a popular weekend restaurant with a pretty terrace and an excellent baker provide the 'necessities of life'.

Old Pollença with a good choice of shops and restaurants is no more than a 15 minute drive. However for a truly memorable occasion, book a table at a small hotel in the nearby village of Binibona where gourmet food is served on a candlelit terrace. If you don't want to drink and drive there's even a local taxi.

For serious shoppers, the town of Inca, famous for its leather goods and with some excellent cellar resaturants, is a 10 minutes drive and from here or, even nearer Sa Pobla, you can also catch a train to Palma.

The nearest beaches at Puerto Pollenca or Alcudia are approx. 20 minutes drive.
