Our holiday in Selva in the foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range was really lovely. The place is cosily nestled between olive trees and offers great views without feeling exposed. The outdoor area is fantastic with a big oven, a grill and an espresso machine. We had the pool all to ourselves.
Santiago took care of everything! He speaks English well enough for any concerns you might have and is very responsive. He picked us up in Selva to guide us through the village to his place. We felt very welcomed in his place and although he lives in the main house we hardly noticed that we had neighbours.
The only reason why we did not give 5 stars is that the mattresses were really quite old and especially the fold out sofa is very worn, so you feel the springs. We would definitely recommend to change them, but otherwise it was a great experience.
It may be worth mentioning that we're climbers and it's a great spot for climbing as it's very close to a lot of crags. Caimari is only 7 min away and a fantastic climbing area for mid grades and most other places are reachable within 45 min. ...One more thing - pick a small rental car (i.e. Ford Fiesta) since anything bigger might give you a real challenge getting through the tight streets in and around Selva ;)
