Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Valldemossa - Home in Valldemossa Monastery

Quiet and large home inside 15th century monument, with garden and views

The grand 340 m2 home is part of the historical monument of the Real Cartuja de Valldemossa, built in the 15th century and famous for its tenants Frederic Chopin and George Sand in the 19th century. The house is in fact an old monk's cell converted into a luxury home, with 5 bedrooms, each with bathroom, several living rooms, a fully equiped kitchen, a home cinema room, and a lovely private garden with views of the Sierra de Tramuntana. It is exquisitely and comfortably decorated, and the high ceilings contribute to maintaining an agreeable temperature indoors in summer.

About Viveca

This incredible house belongs to my friend Clara, a visual artist living in Madrid. As I know the house very well, have had excellent experiences renting out our own country house in the Sierra de Gredos and speak several languages, she asked me to help her manage the rentals. I am an art dealer in Madrid, of Dutch-Argentine-American-German origin.

Viveca purchased this house in 1910

Why Viveca chose Deia - Soller Region

This house offers a unique opportunity to live Mallorca from inside one of its most important historical monuments, the Cartuja de Valldemossa. The building breathes history: built as a monastery, the different 'cells' have been in the hands of private families since the beginning of the 19th Century, and many famous guests have passed through, foremost amongst whom Chopin and George Sand. Despite all this it's a very quiet house, decorated in great style and with a beautiful private garden with lovely views of the surrounding hills.

What makes this house unique

Perfect house for a quiet and comfortable, stylish holiday, inside the most beautiful building in the most beautiful town of Mallorca, close to the prettiest and quietest beaches.

Hidden jewel in the centre of historic village

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house really is a hidden jewel - arriving via the monastery museum corridor through shuttered doors, was like entering a secret garden. The hustle and bustle of day time Valldemossa is left behind, and you enter a beautiful home, with the garden terrace and its' stunning views over the valley ahead of you. It really is like a home too - if you want minimilist living then this might not be for you - but the quality of the furniture and facilities are definitely five star. It is comfortable and relaxed and it's easy to imagine, if only for a few nights, that this is home (if only that were true!). Valldemossa during the day is a bit of a tourist honey trap - it is very beautiful and gets a lot of day trippers - but by 5.30pm its streets are emptying and the village can be enjoyed in peace. We slept so well - it's very quiet and also cool enough for comfortable sleep without AC. We were only two people so we only really used the ground floor area, but the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms would provide perfect accommodation for a larger party. The booking process and communication with the owners was excellent and the on-site service provided by Domingo was very good - our spanish is very basic but we communicated easily with sign language! Free parking nearby as arranged via Domingo. We ate twice at Casa sa Miranda and would highly recommend (it gets busy so booking advisable). We visited the Chopin museum in the 'cell' next door to the house (curious to see how similar ours was to where he stayed!) We loved the house, its garden and views and would happily return and also recommend to others

A historical house with a poetic atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

This house has a special, magical atmosphere. From the buildings long entrance corridor to the views across the valley in Valldemossa staying in this property offers a poetic and elegant experience, especially in the winter months. The house is very well equipt, the showers & the heating work well and my kids loved playing in the enchanting rooms and corridors. We have stayed in several home and away properties around the world and this is one of our favourites. Contacting the owner, making payments, having a rental agreement & being met at the property all ran very smoothly. We will definitely stay here again. It's an ideal place to explore Mallorca by car or foot and it's equally a wonderful house to spend time in. Thanks

Great accommodation with historical roots

  • 5 of 5

If you´re looking for a holiday in a small spanish village with historical roots, this is the place to choose. We had wonderful days together with our children in the beautiful village of Valldemossa. The apartment holds the highest standard and all the necessities are in walking distance. We highly recommend this living and will most likely come back again.

Valldemossa is considered the prettiest town in Mayorca, with its narrow and steep streets and its many monuments, amongst which the Cartuja is the most important. It is a very quiet town, with hardly any hotels or night life, even though the closest beach is at only 7 km, the town of Deià at 10 km and Mayorca's capital, Palma, at 19 km distance. The Sierra de Tramuntana is the perfect setting for walking or biking, as it has many well indicated trails.
