The 'Artist' Boutique House' is a lovely “House-Museum” plenty of art, in the heart of the historical centre of Alcudia and at less than 1 Km. to the beach. This tasteful historical Majorcan house (few centuries old house) is in, may be, the most cosy street of the historical Alcudia, Carrer de la Roca (a street plenty of plants and original Majorcan houses). The house has been recently renovated and refurnished carefully.
From the first moment, the house is just impressive: a huge arc and dozens of paintings greet the visitors in this large typical house of approx. 200 m2., a perfect place to feel far away from the tourist trail in an authentic Majorcan house in a very quiet atmosphere.
On the first floor there is the huge Hall with different atmospheres (reading corner, sofa area, dining table), then comes a living room with a 40’ Flat TV where to watch the international channels of the satellite TV. From there, you can access to the fully-equipped kitchen where you will find more than you can need. There is a direct access to the patio, a perfect place to have a Mediterranean breakfast and enjoy lovely dinners with the BBQ. The family bathroom is lcated outside in the little patio. From the patio you can go up to the small terrace for sunbathing.
In the first floor of the house there is one bathroom and 3 bedrooms: The white bedroom with street views, the middle bedroom with a bathroom ensuite, and the Artist´s bedroom (a large one, used before as an art workshop, that has one double bed and an individual bed). To access this last bedroom you have to pass through the middle bedroom.
The 'Artist's Boutique House' is at only 100 meters to the Alcudia's main square (Plaza de la Constitución) where you can enjoy there one of the many restaurants and a Mediterranean lifestyle in their “terrazas”.
The best Alcudia’s beaches can be reached on foot, or 5 minutes by car gets you to Puerto de Alcudia. It’s also an ideal location for bicycle tours and a paradise for walkers.
There are many public parking in Alcudia and all of them are safe, free and no limit of time.
At the Artist´s Boutique House you will feel like at home!
My daughter and I booked this lovely home to stay in and we were overwhelmed how lovely it was once we got to see inside. It's huge. It's in the perfect place to open the door and walk right into the heart of Alcudia old town which is beautiful. We have been to Alcudia many times so we knew our way around and it was only a short walk to the Port of Alcudia to visit the wonderful beach and the shops. Night time was the best as you could walk straight out into the towns atmosphere for a glass of wine and a Majorcan meal. The facilities inside the house are a home away from home and you don't need anything extra to enjoy your stay.
If I had to give a slight negative review it would be for the lack of air conditioning downstairs as it was like an oven and unless you opened all the doors and windows front and back there was no relief. You could also do with more than one bath towel each and one hand towel. The fridge worked but it needs attention as it froze all our food and drinks and we were unable to turn it down.
These are small things though and they didn't spoil our holiday at all. We had a wonderful stay and would like to thank the owner and Gabriel for making us feel welcome and at home. We will look forward to coming again one day soon.
The charming house is 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 3 kilometers from the property. It is one of the leading golf courses in Mallorca with 18 holes and spectacular views.
