We had a truly fabulous time at Finca Sol Rose - it was everything we hoped it would be and more....the website doesn't really do justice to the space, surroundings and situation of the property. We had originally been looking for a villa within walking distance of Pollenca, but we are so glad we chose this one. It is only 3 miles south of Pollenca Old Town and therefore a very quick drive (or cheap taxi ride when having a few glasses of vino) but in a true countryside setting. The local radio taxi company quickly learnt where to pick us up at the end of the drive so the lack of walk to town was not an issue.
For a 3 bed, single level house it feels very spacious inside and would be no problem at all for 6 adults (we were 5). Outside, the terraces and furniture are just perfect for all the alfresco eating you need, from breakfast right through to sundowners watching the sun as it dips behind the mountains. We dined in more often than normal on holiday because we decided that few restaurants could offer the same setting and sunset view!
Tammy was enormously helpful via email in the booking process and lead up to our arrival. Once there, Shanti and Jose (immediate neighbours who look after the house and its guests) could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. We left feeling like we had made some lovely new friends.
To sum up - a charming countryside house, in a truly lovely, peaceful location, in fantastic large grounds, (yes, there are ants...but it's the Mallorcan countryside so to what do you expect?!).
There's always a danger when giving a good review to a rental property that you increase the chance of it not being available when you want to go back... However this one deserves it and we will take the risk, for we will definitely be back! Many thanks to Tammy, Shanti and Jose. We hope to see you again soon....
