About the property

2 Bedrooms bedroom with a full bathroom and space for two children in an attic

This is a beautiful snug stone faced cottage for two adults, ( in the summer months of July and August and two children are also welcome ) in the middle of rural Mallorca. We have 2 labrador dogs and 2 cats who welcome you with warm hearts and a lot of hugs. Our special cottage is not all you get when you come to us.

Read on and find out that it is a lifestyle offering many unusual details...

It lies 1.8km from the nearest village, Porreres. It has a 6m x 11m pool, furnished terraces all around the house and a large garden. 15 – 25 minutes from the south and eastern beaches.

The house is made up of a living space with closed wood fire, open kitchen, double bedroom, dressing room, bathroom with bath tub, and an attic for two children. We have an extensive library. There is an outside 4 poster double bed, as well, for when the weather permits.

The house runs on Solar energy and an artesian well for water. We do not have air conditioning, but an over head fan in the bedroom. The house is surrounded with many different kinds of herbs plants and rose bushes which harmonise the house and its extended space.

We live in the adjoining house, completely separately, and have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Our pets enjoy saying good morning and visiting our guests during their stay, they have all enjoyed it very much!

The cottage is fully fitted out with basic domestic necessities which we ask our guests to replenish as needed. We have our own drinkable water. We make your holidays as comfortable and happy as possible. we supply Toys for the beach and sunbrellas. Beach towels not supplied. Baby accessories except buggy.

There is a fully fitted out art room for guests to be able to paint and be creative if they wish. Oil paint, acrylics, watercolours, and lots more. The families do full on complete body painting and it is great fun.

There is a full chest of dressing up clothes for children up to 12 years of age. Lots of old fashion games, board games, dollies and teddies, children's china for tea parties. All this fun happens in a 7m caravan where the children play for hours and the parents can relax and read undisturbed, when it is too hot for the pool.

Should you have friends or family on the island at the same time we also have the facility for you to occasionally entertain your guests under the Mulberry treas at a large table for up to 10 people.

The Town of Porreres:

We have been living here for 28 years and watched this village grow from a quiet, sleepy, closed, introspective heaven into an internationally loved community with great style, daring architectural achievements, and lots of lovely watering holes and delicious restaurants offering a variety of local and other culinary delights. The village has 5 very good wine producers who are welcoming to interested wine lovers, outside the village and have excellent wines. There is an almond cooperative, and olive oil press, fresh vegetable warehouse and a special mallorquian biscuit factory.

During the summer months there are a series of attractions set up in the pedestrian town center offering music, and entertainment. There are 23 bar/café houses, an exciting Art Collection in the town hall, an Auditorium and a Museum. The local community is full of young people with a renewed presence of mothers and prams.

The heart of the island: The island of Mallorca has received generous sums of European monies and has put it to great use rebuilding the road network on the island. This is so very important for an economy who is dependent on its tourists. From Porreres all extremities of the island are available in less than one hour by car. You can have magnificent day tours, reaching historic houses, lovely beaches, mountain walks, shopping malls, and the charming old-world Palma, one of the most beautifully restored medieval city ports in Europe.

The variety of the island of Mallorca is what makes it so attractive. Mountain ranges, with breathtaking cliff-views along the north coast to the peaceful quiet beaches, in the east and the south. Rolling planes in the center of the island, with charming rural communities living the traditional life maintaining its cultural identity.

For those interested there are many very old settlements from foregone eras, showing life from up to 6000 BC. Close to us there are three. All these are under an hour away.

The Caseta:

After eleven years of contented house guests, we are happy to say that it is a property suited to people who want to get away from the busy life to some peace and quiet. Some have come and gone without even us knowing that they were there, complete discretion to privacy is respected at all times. Others have come and sat on our terrace many evenings with us, seeking hospitality and company, which we are happy to provide.

Families with small children feel very safe here and all baby accessories are supplied. For families with older children, they often spend half the holiday in the pool, relaxing, playing board games, and watching films!

We try to provide something for everyone in our little world which we have spent 15 years creating.

I am Irish originally from Howth, north point of Dublin bay, my husband Thomas Moll is from Hamburg and we have been living in Mallorca for 25 years. We have 4 children and built our home in the country near the village which the children describe as our little part of paradise to share.

Ruth McCarthy Moll purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Ruth McCarthy Moll chose Porreres

It is completely private but we are there in the background, to support you and serve your needs. You can enjoy a climate of an english or irish summer right through the winter and you are only 2 hours from home. We are prepared for winter guests, located in the centre of the island, offering easy access to day trips. You can go to the mountains or beaches for leasurely or mountainous walking, come home to wood fire and a lovely film over a bottle of local wine, or a book of your choice from our extensive library and film collection. We also have 2 bicycles for you to use. It is perfect for a winter break.

What makes this cottage unique

Centrally located, you are in Palma, in the mountains, on the nicest beaches within 25 minutes. You can drink our water and the great local wines. Live by the energy of the sun, sit outside on a water proof terrace, sleep outside in our special 4 poster double bed. There is our unique garden with lots of private sitting areas, to read or sleep and enjoy the warmth of the winter mediterranean sun.

Entspannung und Wohlfühlen in der Hochsaison

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren nun das zweite Mal in diesem wunderbaren Anwesen.

Das Haus ist ausserordentlich gut ausgestattet. In der Küche findet man neben einer Vielzahl von Küchengeräten auch Dinge des alltäglichen Gebrauchs, wie Gewürze, Nudeln, Tee, Spülmittel...Der Urlaub kann also direkt losgehen.

Trotz Hochsaison im Sommer haben wir hier absolute Ruhe und Idylle gefunden. Die Kinder (10 und 6 Jahre) liebten die Tiere und den Pool. Ruth, die Gastgeberin, hat ein tolles Händchen mit Kindern und brachte immer wieder Überraschungen vorbei (Puppen, Malsachen...)

Der Aussenbereich ist ein warer Traum: auf der Terrasse haben wir viel Zeit verbracht. Das Himmelbett unterm Sternenzelt war ein Highlight.

Porrerres liegt sehr zentral auf der Insel, so dass man von hier aus mit einem Leihwagen sowohl den Süden der Insel mit seinen zahlreichen Traumstränden, wie auch den Westen mit seiner Bergwelt bequem erreichen kann. Wir haben sehr viel von der Insel gesehen.

Wir möchten uns ganz herzlich bei Ruth und Thomas bedanken. Die drei Wochen waren für uns alle eine absolute Wohltat. Ruth und Thomas sind aussergewöhliche Gastgeber mit viel Engagement und noch mehr Herz.

Ganz viele Grüße!

Charming property, quiet location, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! The location is good, we were able to reach Palma or any Southern beach with a 40-minute ride. The apartments are nice and clean. Electrical power is provided by solar cells only (with an accumulator for the night). The gardens are beautiful and the same applies generally to the outside area. The owners are friendly and helpful. Thanks for your hospitality!

Die Finca ist zwar nicht besonders groß oder üppig ausgestattet, aber die Terrasse und der Garten sind allerliebst. Besser geht es nicht.

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und kümmern sich um alles.

Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Traumurlaub abseits vom Trubel!!! Tolle Location, tolle Gastgeber!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr erholsame Zeit in wirklich traumhafter Umgebung! Das Haus ist genau, wie auf den Bildern dargestellt.

Bei 30 Grad im Schatten waren wir eh fast nur draußen. Dort haben wir gegessen und auch die Abende verbracht. Unsere Kinder (10 und 13 Jahre) haben es geliebt, mit "Hund und Katz" zu kuscheln und zu spielen, da wir zu Hause keine Tiere haben. Auch das Außenbett haben wir gern genutzt! Uns hat es wirklich an nichts gefehlt.

Wir haben bewußt eine Unterkunft im Landesinneren gewählt um einerseits die Ruhe zu genießen, andererseits auch die Möglichkeit zu haben, unseren Kindern einiges von der Insel zu zeigen. Wir waren u.a. in Santanyi, Porto Colom, Cap Formentor, Cala Llombards, Son Serra der Marina und natürlich auch in Palma!. Für die In-Strände lohnt es sich früh aufzustehen!

Porreres ist ein nettes, kleines Städtchen, wo man alles für den Alltag bekommt und auch empfehlenswerte Restaurants findet.

Ruth und Thomas sind sehr herzliche und erfahrene Gastgeber. Sie sind so hilfsbereit und haben für jede Frage oder Bitte eine Lösung und natürlich auch viele Tipps für den Alltag! Die Anordnung des Ferienhauses an das Haupthaus gibt einem dabei jederzeit genug Privatsphäre.

Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen!

einfach zum wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Famile mit 2 Kindern, 4 und 8 Jahre) haben zwei Wochen in den Sommerferien in diesem wunderbaren Haus verbracht.

Die Fotos halten, was sie versprechen. Die Ausstattung im Haus lässt keine Wünsche offen. Es ist sauber und sehr gemütlich. Die Sitzplätze draussen sind wunderbar zum frühstücken, grillen oder einfach nur entspannen.

Ganz besonders gut hat den Kindern und uns das Himmelbett draussen gefallen, wo wir abends gemeinsam in den Sternenhimmel geschaut haben.

Die Nähe zur Natur und zu den Tieren (2 Hunde, Katzen und Babykatzen) war besonders für die Kinder Freiheit pur.

Porrerres mit schönen, empfehlenswerten Restaurants liegt nur 1,5 km entfernt.

Mit dem Auto haben wir viele traumhafte Strände erreicht (Cala del Moro, Sa Rapita, Cala Pi, Cala Llombards...). Der nächste Strand liegt ca. 20 Minunten entfernt.

Ganz besonder wertvoll war für uns die Gastfreundschaft und Hilfbereitschaft der Vermieter Thomas und Ruth. Die Kinder und wir haben uns "wie zu hause" gefühlt. Wir alle werden wiederkommen.

Owner's Response: Wir, Thomas und Ruth haben die Familie Schill so gerne bei uns gehabt. Sehr nette, liebevolle und ehrbare Leute, mit denen wir viel Freude hatten. Wir habe es sehr genossen, als die Kinder mit den Puppen gespielt und sich verkleidet haben. Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen auf unserer Finca.

Ruhiges Feriendomizil,schöner Garten,

  • 5 of 5

wir wohnten vom 5.5.-19.5.2014 in diesem gemütlichen Ferienhaus.Wer die Ruhe liebt/sucht,dem sei angeraten,sich hier vollends zu erholen.Das ist Landleben pur mit einem schönen abwechslungsreichen Garten.Trotzdem erreicht man Porreres zum Einkauf in wenigen Minuten und der Weg zum Strand dauert max 20 min.Als Startpunkt für unsere täglichen Inselausflüge liegt die Finca sehr zentral .

Zu den Gastgebern Ruth und Thomas hat sich schnell ein herzliches Verhältnis entwickelt.Durch ihre Freundlichkeit und HIlfsbereitschaft hat es uns an Nichts gefehlt.

Die Räumlichkeiten sind sauber und in gutem Zustand.Wir liebten die verschiedenen Freisitze und Terrassen,je nach Sonnenstand.

Als ausgesprochene Tierliebhaber haben wir die beiden süssen Kätzchen sofort an uns gebunden und die beiden wohlerzogenen Hunde haben uns zusätzlich die Freizeit verschönt.Wer allerdings lieber Abstand zu Tieren hält,so ist dies aufgrund der großzügigen Finca-Anlage immer möglich.

Wir hatten uns vorgenommen, 2 Wochen ohne Internet,Fernsehen,Radio und Video auszukommen und das war ein Segen.

Alles in allem fanden wir den Urlaub einmalig schön und planen ein Wiedersehen.

Danke an Ruth und Thomas
