An Easter break!
Review Submitted: 18 April 2012
Date of Stay: March 2012
We had never been to Mallorca before this trip but our family of 4 (Mum, Dad, daughter aged 6 and son aged nearly 3), found it to be a delight. Our enquiry and booking was dealt with by Desna who made it feel effortless. After a very easy drive from the airport we were met by Ana, the fabulously welcoming owner, who had made sure that we had some essentials on arrival including a bottle of Rioja.
As for the Villa, it was perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace, having breakfast, reading or simply enjoying the unbroken view of the church at Ariany on the horizon (which was conveniently flood lit at night time). The pool, although it looked incredibly inviting, was resisted beyond a paddle with the kids purely because of the time of year. The facilities overall are very comfortable, with a shower that is almost too good as once in it you don't want to get out of it! The children (not natural animal lovers) were quickly in the habit of feeding the two local cats their morning snacks.
The villa is in Maria and the village feels traditionally Mallorcan. It is situated only a short walk from the square in the centre of Maria where we enjoyed a coffee in the morning, a bite to eat or a couple of cervezas and vino blancos in the early evening. Whilst tourists seemed to regularly frequent Maria, it felt like you were predominantly mixing with the friendly locals. The countryside surrounding Maria was peaceful and tranquil and the coast was a pleasant and short drive away.
Overall, we found a very comfortable and relaxing villa in a traditional Mallorcan village.
Owner's Response: On behalf of Ana, the owner, and myself, I would like to thank this family for their positive and engaging description of the villa, village and surrounds. Yet another family seduced and entranced by this very wonderful property - one of Mallorca's best kept secrets!
To future holiday makers: come and try this great property for yourself - the stunning views, the gorgeous gardens, peaceful surroundings (it is well away from the mainstream tourism) and beautiful villa - you won't be disappointed!
To our reviewers: a hearty welcome back, and if you stay between the months of May and October, it will be the pool you won't be able to get out of, not the shower!!!
Many thanks, and best regards, Desna.
