This apartment is on the top floor with a lift. It looks out to the South from the balcony which has nice views towards the sea and Palma on the other side of the bay. I've owned it for thirty years - chosen because its not in the busy part of town - but only two minutes from the warm shallow bay of Cala Estancia, regular buses to Palma, good local food - and quiet. Quiet for Spain, anyway.

The apartment is easy to run, and recently refurbished in modern style with twin beds, large corner sofa, dining for four and LOADS of crockery and cutlery to make it worth using the dishwasher. Flat-screen TV/DVD, lots of storage and well appointed bathroom and kitchen. Its our Spanish home from home. We love it.

Further details indoors

The property was bought from new by a friend of mine's dad to retire to in about 1960. My friend inherited it and eventually sold it to me in the 80's. It took untill 1990 for the lift to be connected (this is Spain).

The flat has tiled floors and plastered walls in typical Spanish style - but we've recently knocked all the original Spanish furniture on the head for something a bit more comfortable to live with. The best thing we did was replace the old glass wall of windows (very sixties) with double glazed sliding patio doors to keep you cooler in the summer and warmer on winter evenings. Its all rather nice now and about fifty square meters in total. Very easy to run! Welcome Pack included.

Further details outdoors

No 10 is a rather nice block of small private apartments in a relatively small block with well-kept gardens. There's kerbside parking right outside if you hire a car. (You don't need to) This is a top floor Studio apartment with great views from the balcony and only a few minutes walk from two small bays and the beautiful walk/cycle track running for over twelve traffic-free miles from Arenal marina to Palma harbour. Great for excercise.

The local Cala Estancia bay is superb for swimming (or floating) for most of the year. Or there's buses at the end of the road (200 yards) if you prefer sightseeing in Palma - and then a fabulous new and comprehensive tram system by which you can explore this beautiful warm island. Or hire a car/bike/moped from the village. And don't forget to take the unforgettable train ride from Palma to Soller - then the hundred-year-old ex-San Francisco tram to the picturesque harbour. So much to do - or just chill!

Further details

There's a lift to all floors - but several steps up to the main lobby (shown), so wheelchair users need to take a view on that. Our excellent local agent (an ex-pat Scottish engineer) arranges the welcome packs and cleaning. You'll have his number for any emergencies.

The Mallorca/Majorca region

Mallorca is the most cosmopolitan of the Balearic Islands. It produces some excellent wines and the other local produce is really superb. Seafood is renowned and not expensive - try boquerones with a local wine, bread and ai-oli.

Its very hot in August when our flat is always booked by a friendly Spanish couple. Its great in the summer and a terrific place in the depths of winter (like a warm summers day). In fact, all of the year is totally gorgeous - but August is too hot for me.

Palma is a stunning historic city with theatres, museums and a beautiful cathedral. Ca'an Pastilla is so convenient for everything so you don't need a car for a short stay. There's so much to do.

Palma

Theme Parks are a bus ride away (Water Parks, etc..) and there's a fabulous new Aquarium the other side of town. There's a Go-Kart track on the road to the airport, car and bike hire, banks, shops and a twice-weekly mixed market in the village square.

There's even a hypermarket just a few minutes drive. But this is a beach resort and there's a marina, lots of sand, sea and sunbathing. Take the land-train up the seafront all the way to Arenal market.
