About the property

This is very exciting, it will be our pleasure to host your collective family or group for your holidays.

We have a tourist license and will welcome you as summer holidays guests in our beautiful house.

We moved to the island 30 years ago, have brought up 4 children and during this time lived our dream and created the magical space which you can now enjoy.

In the photos you will see the distribution plan of the house.

In addition, i can offer you a Professional Cook and an assistant to prepare and clean up after one main meal a day in the evenings for a very reasonable price, as eating out in Mallorca in high season is expensive and stressy. This way you will be able to take full advantage of the property enjoying the garden, salt water pool and the long summer evenings.

Any necessities with allergies, celiac or any special diet needs can be accommodated. Each family can arrange themselves for breakfast and lunches as they wish.

The House is facing east towards the salt water swimming pool and there are 10.000m2 of garden with chillout spots and playing areas so that the noise level and privacy for each family can be respected. We have our own deep water well, which is drinking water, and we are a solar paneled house with support from the national grid.

The House has two kitchens, three bathrooms, a guest toilet, four double beds and a five bed apartment for children.

The centre of the house is a double storied light shaft, atrium, and there is a large reading/playroom in the middle of the house, upstairs between the two apartments, which contains an extensive library with over 1.000 books in german, spanish and english. There are toys for all aged groups from baby's through to teenagers, including puzzles and many family games. And there are dollies and dollies clothes.

On the ground floor there is one double bedroom en suite, a music room, a film room, the entrance hall with WC, atrium and a 40m2 dining cum kitchen area.

When you look at the photographs you can associate the future bedrooms by name.

The sleeping space:

Room 1: Downstairs Master Bedroom en suite - 25m2 bedroom with double bed (1.80x2m)

Room 2: Music room - Armchairs, book lined room with a music system for reading or listening to music

There are over 200 volumes of art books and a huge collection of music from the 60's, 70's, 80's and classical music.

Room 3: Film room - two seater and 3 seater leather couches, 3 wooden armchairs, television, there are at least 500 DVD's, german and english satellite TV

Room 4: Ca na Laura - two double bed (1.80x2m), one bed (1.40x2m)

Room 5: Can Alex - one double bed (1.60x2m) with a sink

Room 6: Ca na Pia - 5 single single beds (90cmx2m)

We have an art studio offering acrylics, watercolors and painting equipment.

We have a baby bed, a high chair, a potty a changing table, baby armchair and all baby accessories including toys.

The outside space proves a 60m2 terrace with a coffee table with armchairs and a large dining table for 14 people.

Outside the front door there is a magic spot for cocktails in the evening to watch the sun go down, there is a hollywood swing with armchairs in a quiet location further away in the garden and there are four other spots with privacy to take the sun, read or write.

I believe the property is ideal for a group as there is lots of space and facilities for all age groups.

We will reside in the cottage which is completely separate and totally private. You will not even know that we are there unless you want to.

It is very important that you understand that the use of the pool is at you own risk.

The children must wear armbands at all times when in the garden so that there is no risk of drowning in the pool.

In the next village it is possible to hire bicycles and we have space to park 5 cars.

There Is a cleaning lady who come 3 times a week to maintain the house.

The rental price includes:

pool terrace preparations (in the mornings),

pool and garden maintenance,

About Ruth McCarthy Moll

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 house 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 house 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. 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
