Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Galilea - Can Font Cottage

Exquisitely restored 2 bedroom Mallorcan cottage, sleeps 2 very comfortably.

Dating from 1750s, Can Font is a south facing cottage situated on the edge of the picturesque mountain village of Galilea. With its sea and mountain views, it is especially ideal for couples wishing to escape the hustle and bustle to enjoy the peace and calm of the spacious terraces, the private infinity pool and fresh mountain air. The 250 yr. old Mallorcan cottage has been exquisitely restored, providing charm and luxury in equal measures.

The kitchen well equipped and airy with granite work tops. The cottage also benefits from air-conditioning in the bedrooms, under-floor heating throughout, English & German Satellite TV and WIFI.

Golf, beaches, sailing and Palma are all within easy reach.

For those preferring the cooler months of Autumn and Spring, one can enjoy the spectacular mountain walks and Palma's rich architectural heritage.

The cottage is set in 5,100 Sq. m. of land on the edge of Galilea, a picturesque mountain village with a couple of bars and a restaurant. The large south facing terrace (136 m2) is idea for sunbathing and reading in peace & quiet, and then cooling off with a dip in the infinity pool (private use 8 X 4m). The covered porch provides a perfect area for informal dining with sea views whilst watching the sunset. There is also adequate parking for 4 cars.

Worth mentioning too are the benefits and pleasures of visiting Mallorca in the off season months when the temperatures are cooler.

The location of the cottage thus makes a good base for a walking holiday as there are several walks within the area including the walk up Galazto a well known mountain on mallorca popular with so many walkers

It is also favoured by cyclists with many cycling events and holidays taking place on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jackie,



excuse that we contact only today on your dear lines. But with our return a long row of doctor and hospital visits has begun for Peter on account of his huge shoulder pains which have effects on the whole chest.



Hence, unfortunately, we find only today time and rest to answer to you.



We have felt in your wonderful house absolutely at home. We have loved it - it was so relaxing, so easy and you were a miraculous hostess.

We also hope that we will see again in the nice Galilea.



Dear Jackie, from us both of all love and good for you. And again a sincerely meant thank-you. Hier klicken!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole holiday was just amazing! The cottage is simply beautiful, impeccably restored and so homely, with breath taking views to die for, I had to keep pinching myself. Jackie made a wonderful home made cake and supplied basics in the kitchen for our arrival. I agree with another review the pictures are fantastic but it is much larger in reality and even better to experience, they don't quite do it justice.

Jackie was so warm and welcoming, a beautiful hostess for a beautiful home. She made us feel at ease straight away letting us know all the details of the house and the area etc... and that she was always there if we needed her. After that we didn't see her only in passing to say hello which was lovely as you felt you had your own space amongst the tranquillity, but also had the help of someone that knows the area; if you need advice or info.

She made our day one lazy afternoon bringing us a bowel of fresh figs from the village square, they were just delicious I really cant put it into words. The two tapas bars in the village were also really good we would recommend them if you don't want to cook or drive out for dinner.

Being in the mountains was also delightful as it was a little bit cooler and only a short drive away from Palma.

We are hoping to go again next year ourselves, and would recommend Jackie and Martins place to anyone. Though I also agree with another review we are reluctant to recommend at the same time in case it gets totally booked up!

Thanks Jackie, this villa is a gem. Marvellous views, beautiful pool, equipment is everything you need and the house is modern and immaculate. You even get the main British television channels. Just one of the best. And that's without mentioning the legendary cake and figs!

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

My sister, mother and I had the perfect week here. The house is beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped and well thought out. The views are stunning and it was hard for us to want to move much further than the pool and terrace. When we did we discovered some dramatic drives and beautiful beaches. (The winding roads are not for the carsick!) Jackie is very welcoming and on hand but gives you space too. And we miss Freddie, the cat with personality who loves to hang out with you on the terrace.
