Wonderful traditional home with all modern comforts located a very short stroll from the main Square
Pleasantly furnished and with air-con,cool or warm as required.
House is in family ownership by the Proprietrix of the Bar Llabres in the Square, a tradtional hostelry established for many years. We were met by Juan, son of the owner, outside the bar, who is a very pleasant young man - he paid for our beers! - and then took us to the house, less than 5 minutes round the corner. Everything was explained and it was a nice touch to leave a welcome pack for guests - milk, juice water etc.
Subsequently met the owner who is a very nice Spanish lady who welcomed us warmly on each visit
We enjoyed walking home each night as the "tourists" were deaprting and felt very much part of the Old Town population - highly recommended - thank you
Sant Vicenc is located in the old town of Alcudia, whose name combines the Arabic and Roman footprint. Located near the Serra de Tramuntana, Alcúdia has his back to the rural Majorca, feet the waters of two bays, the north of Pollença and Alcúdia east.
Alcudia is housed in the heart of this area of contrasts, between the stone wall of the Serra and the sandy coves of the Bay of Alcudia between the north wind, the sea and inland.
Alcudia boasts an important historical heritage and the essence of Mediterranean life, where everything happens slowly, where everything is savored and enjoyed. Within its medieval walls (which began to be built in 1300) is Sa Plaza: the meeting place of the "alcudiencs" place of passage, the meeting point. All around are bars, restaurants and terraces to enjoy the best cuisine of the island.
In either direction from the square winding streets in several directions lead you to beautiful monuments like the gates of Xara and Sant Sebastia, the Church of Sant Jaume, opposite which lies the city of Rome Pollentia and a little beyond the Roman theater, a 'rara avis' because instead of being built, is dug into the rock.
A row of orange mark the route of the main streets, the Carrer del Moll and Main Street. These streets are home to small jewelery shops, shoe stores, clothing stores, bars, restaurants ... Many of these establishments are housed in large houses built centuries ago, small and peaceful squares.
Alcúdia is one of those places worth lost in its streets to discover around every corner a new place with charm, a new feel.
Every Tuesday and Sunday morning, the pace of the city is accelerated with the market. Farmers, traders, artisans and artists paint color the villa and bustle of the people around you feel inside and outside the medieval walls.
Only 1 kilometer away from the village we find Port d'Alcudia: a small fishing harbor, which today has become a popular place for people who enjoy life at the beach.
The boardwalk has won several competitions in architecture and urbanism and is the perfect place to walk with its fragrant aroma and pleasant breeze, between "llaüts" traditional fishing boats setting, and the modern marina Alcudiamar.
On the other hand, there also find the best fish restaurants, ice cream parlors and clothing stores. And facing the beach, kilometers of fine sand that draws the Bay of Alcudia with its crystal clear turquoise waters. It is the most popular beach, with all services: bars, boat rental and sailing courses and a water park.
But this beach, the longest in Mallorca (10 km), is not alone. Nearby you will find nearly twenty: sand, pebble, rock, accessible only by sea songs. Among the intimate beaches stands Alcanada, or the S'Illot Coll Baix. The latter is a true marvel of nature that is only accessible by boat or after a pleasant outing among pine trees and rocks.
Precisely from the Coll Baix begin some very interesting excursions for lovers of trekking and nature as it rises to Sa Talaia, old watchtower at the highest point of the town. From above we see two bays, the Serra, Alcúdia, the Pla de Mallorca and when the day is clear, the coast of Menorca.
But if there is an unmissable event for lovers of nature, is S'Albufereta and S'Albufera, two of the largest wetlands, relevant ecological value of the Balearic Islands, with important animal and plant species.
Aucanada Golf Course is also just 4 kilometers from the property. It is one of the leading golf courses in Mallorca with 18 holes and spectacular views.
