Miles from anywhere so the kids could be as loud as they wanted, with stunning views of olive groves for the adults. Big, clean pool for everyone to cool off in. The house is brand new, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. The hosts were so welcoming and left us an enormous basket of goodies. The driveway is lined with all sort of fruit trees which you can help yourselves to (figs, lemons, limes, olives, peaches, apricots, almonds). The extremely friendly resident goats were a huge hit with the children. We arrived in the middle of a heatwave and found the house a bit hot at night as there is no a/c or fans. We would definitely recommend this home and would happily return in the future.

It was beautifully designed and presented, 10 mins from Manacor with large supermarkets and 30 mins from Cala millor, where we liked to go some evenings. On the way to Cala millor are the caves at Porto cristo and the safari park, both good days out. I would recommend google map directions for your first drive in and out of Petra, with is a maze of tiny narrow streets that all look the same but once I realised to avoid the whole town by turning left and heading out via the country road, life was simple! Thanks Miguel for a comfortable and lovely holiday despite the record Mallorcan temperatures... sooo hot!!
