Sa Taulera is a particularly individual house, named for its many tiled roofs. Originally the site was used to make traditional Mallorquin roof tiles before being converted into an extensive family home.
It is a large single story villa, set into the mountain creating large rooms on different levels. It was completely restored in 2008 and has been brought up to date with tasteful fixtures and fittings and every comfort for a home from home holiday. The accommodation is spacious with lots of areas to either gather together or to spread out for some down time and some peace and quiet.

Then 4 steps up to main lounge with log burner, bedroom suite's 2, 3 and 4. Then a few steps up to sun room/study and master bedroom suite and upper entrance.
The outside terraces are extensive and private with a 10m x 4m swimming pool for the exclusive use of guests. The property also boasts a traditionally roofed gazebo/outdoor lounge with TV for relaxing in the shade with a cool drink. An ideal place to gather for an aperitif before going out for dinner or enjoying a lovely meal or BBQ by the pool in the atmospheric lighting of Sa Taulera by night.
It is a great base both in and out of high season and caters for any type of holiday. It is on cycling routes and there are incredible walks from the house over the mountains towards the sea. It is close to climbing centres and a wide selection of excellent Golf Courses.

The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca has a wide selection of towns, ports, beaches, nature parks, museums with many places to see. The Caves of Drach are a must if you are in Mallorca. The villa is well situatued to visit the entire island, and particularly close to the famous places such as Deia and Valdemossa, the famous haunts of Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones.
We are half way between the south coast beaches of Palma, Illetas, Bendinat and Puerto Portals which are 20 min/10 15 km and the west cost, Bunyalbufar, Deia and Valdemossa being a little longer on smaller more windy roads. beyond Palma Nova and Magalug are the stunning beach coves of Cap Falco and Portals Vells with it's carved cave chapel and miles of pine woods. Its a further 10 minutes drive but the sea food beach BBQ is well worth it.
There are some particularly wonderful local sites, some that we have been to and can recommend ourselves. We have an extensive visitors book to give you many ideas once you arrive.
Some useful links to help you prepare for your trip:

The property is super spacious and everything is easily accessible. I really enjoyed the large pool and the TV in the outdoor gazebo for late night movies. It feels like a home and you can really make yourself comfortable. I look forward to visiting again!

"Brilliant and relaxing villa to stay in."
Sa Taulera Casa, was a wonderful place to stay. Inside and outside merge as one big space. Lots of area's for sunbathing with or without shade. Swimming pool great size. Eating outside at night was easy, and very relaxing with a glass of wine. Bedrooms and bathrooms good size , lots of white fluffy towels. Kitchen had everything we needed. Puigpunyent is very Spanish , not touristy at all, with a good supermarket, bank/cash machine, and a couple of really good bar/resturant.

"Sa Taulera is magnificent"
I had the opportunity to book Sa Taulera last July and it was so enjoyable, I'm going back again this year! Located just 25 minutes from the airport in Palma, Sa Taulera has has all the amenities of a private paradise.
With its five beadrooms and on suite baths, there was certainly enough room for our entire family. Our family prefers home cooked meals, and the fully equiped kitchen was the joy of cooking! The weather was beautiful while we were there and we often ate in a shaded area (covered in grape vines) outside next to the pool and gardens.
We did eat out one evening in town at Rosa's Restaurant which was walking distance and our meals were fantastic. Also don't miss the local winery nearby and LaReserve-- both a treat to visit.
I highly recommend this porperty and hope you enjoy it as much as our family did.

"Beautiful villa, fantastic location! Everything you could possibly need!"
We stayed here with our 2 young children, the villa itself is amazing! It's spacious and has everything that you need in it, a real home from home. The outside space and pool is fantastic and our kids loved it, the gazebo area with tv is a huge bonus! The village itself is beautiful and scenic and has a bar, restaurant, supermarket, bank, chemist and some other shops. The owners are also lovely and really do cater for everything you could need, I would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here and we hope to go back soon.

"Utterly perfect - a magical destination and beautiful home from home"
I had a wonderful, memorable stay at Sa Taulera Casa in summer 2012 with my husband and a small group of friends. It is a fabulous house, extremely spacious, well equipped and elegantly designed. I wish it was my own home! As soon as we entered the driveway, bordered by lovely trees and plants, we knew we'd arrived somewhere special.
The outdoor area is amazing - there is a lovely large pool, warm but still refreshing, and a huge private terrace around it with plenty of comfortable loungers. We spent blissful afternoons dipping in and out of the pool, listening to music or watching movies on the comfy sofas outside under the gazebo (the speakers are excellent). In the evenings we had BBQs (the supermarkets have excellent seafood and meat) and would all sit around the big table outside, with the pool lit up. One night we took the short walk to the Hotel Son Net - a very classy five star hotel - and had drinks and dinner there. It was excellent and it was so good to be able to simply walk there and back.
Puigpunyent, the small village where Sa Taulera Casa is just outside of, gives a taste of the true, rural Mallorca; it is small, full of character and charming, with a handful of shops, bars and restaurants. It is a very pretty area and extremely peaceful, up in the hills with dreamy views all around. But while it is secluded and relaxing, you don't have to go far if you want more action. The interesting town of Palma with loads of restaurants, bars and a lovely old town is only 10-15 minutes drive from the house, and the very pretty towns of Deia and Valdemossa are not much further. One afternoon we drove about 20 minutes to a beach, and it was fun to swim in the sea and have some tapas but most of the time we were happy relaxing at the villa.
The kitchen is of a high standard and is very large, so it's conducive to cooking together and standing around chatting over a glass of wine or two, before settling on a cosy sofa or outside if it's warm. The whole house is so pretty, it could easily be featured in an interiors magazine.
An amazing find - we can't wait to return!

"The Best Villa in Majorca - End of Story!"
Amazing Villa, perfect for big family or group of friends. Feels very exclusive, kind of place A-Listers would hide out on holiday. Owners have thought of EVERYTHING, from local olive oils (that guests are free to use) to the brilliant outdoors Smart TV to chill out in front of in the evening with a G&T!!
I would go back every year given half the chance.
