Casa Aragon in Santa Ponsa. In the very best location on a sought-after development, this very large and attractive villa with excellent views is available for short-term rentals. It has a spacious, well-furnished lounge with free reliable internet wifi, small library, safe, top quality television with UK satellite, a large selection of films for cosy nights in and a good quality stereo system. An archway leads through to the dining area with doors to a shady lani, a secluded, sunny patio and small private garden with sun loungers, table and chairs. Ceiling fans keep the house cool in summer whilst there is a big log fire and panel radiators for winter evenings. The separate, re-modelled, well-equipped kitchen includes oven, hob, fridge and pantry and leads through to a utility room with dishwasher and washing machine. There are three large double bedrooms, two with balcony and all with panoramic views, served by three modernised bathrooms, one en-suite to the master bedroom. Built in low-rise pueblo style with well-maintained gardens and two large communal swimming pools. Please note the maximum number of guests is six, check below that your dates are available and email for an e-brochure.
Long-term winter rentals are available. Please read the rates carefully before enquiring as the longer-term winter monthly rent is considerably cheaper than in the summer.
Activities: In the favoured south-west of the island, the main beach offers all kinds of water sports, whilst there is an excellent scuba diving school based in the marina. Mallorca's coastline is full of contrasts with many pretty bays, coves and clear turquoise seas. The house is ideally placed to discover the picturesque hilly pine clad south-west of the island, the rocky north coast, Deya, Valdemossa, historic Palma and many beautiful beaches. There is excellent hiking and cycling; one of our favourite days out is to walk or horse-ride in the hills above nearby Calvia. Santa Ponsa has 3 local golf courses which have hosted the Mallorcan Classic European Tour Event, whilst tennis is available at several local clubs. Children will enjoy the nearby attractions of Jungle Park, Marineland, Aquapark and go-carting. In summer the entertainment quarter offers a wide variety of restaurants, bars & clubs together with a very professional open-air stage show in the main square: it's a much quieter resort in winter.
Baby-sitting: A reliable and experienced baby-sitter is available.
Indoor swimming pool and 'Jungle Park': Whilst there are two swimming pools, more serious swimmers and winter guests will enjoy the brand new indoor public pool within five minutes walk. This state-of-the art installation holds a 25m pool with aerobics / gym section, and costs about €5 for a day pass. Very popular with children is 'Jungle Park', an adventure playground with tree-walks and exciting activities; this is near the marina, about a fifteen-minute walk.
We're always here to help you...: Santa Ponsa is a 20-minute drive from the airport and is very easy to find, with good, fast roads all the way. There are always plenty of taxis and the airport fare is about 46 euros. However, hiring a car undoubtedly adds to your enjoyment as there is so much to see around this lovely island. Car hire at the airport is inexpensive with new cars which can be booked ahead. I am happy to recommend excellent car-hire companies and will provide simple directions for driving from the airport. NB Keys are available whatever time you arrive.
Near to the house is an excellent and free drop-in health centre staffed by English, German and Spanish-speaking doctors. We speak Spanish and English and my local english manager is only a phone call away should you experience any problems, need assistance or simply want advice to ensure you enjoy a great holiday on this magical island.
Please note there are no agency fees to pay when booked through this site and all bookings are made in the UK.
A great time had by the family. Great villa with the pool just outside the front door. We found the villa to be clean and just what we wanted for a relaxing holiday. The information pack Grahame supplied in the villa gave us great advice on places to eat and we used this every night, visiting some great restaurants and bars. Not a long walk to the main shops and restaurants but could be a bit of a hike on the way back although a taxi was only 4 euro. Told a few friends and family about the villa and we will visit again..
We stayed for nearly 3 months and found the house suited our family of 2 adults and 3 children very well. The bedrooms were spacious and 3 full bathrooms were very handy so we did not need to share with the kids for once! As we were working away from home we needed the Internet and the one at casa Aragon had ample speed and download. The lounge was homely with books, games and DVDs. All day sun on the terrace and balcony meant we could still enjoy outdoors. Close to Santa Ponsa and easy drive to lots of great places... Palma, Bellver Castle, valldemossa, Soller are just a few that we got to. Grahame (owner) was helpful and touched base with us to make sure we had settled in and was very easy to deal with from initial booking to our departure. Looking forward to another visit!
We stayed at this house for three weeks with my family and were very happy. House is nice, clean and bright, well equipped. Two bedrooms facing the small garden, third bedroom facing the swimming pool. The pool area right next to the house is very quiet as there is another pool for children about 50 meters from the house. The only disadvantage for us was the fact, that we had to use some steps and carry two baby carriages all the time as we have two little babies. For a family with bigger children, this house is perfect. Beach and all restaurants are about 10 minutes walk. Grahame is a very helpful person. Our flight was canceled and he offered us to stay at his country finca for few days which is also a very beautiful place, very different from this house. Would I stay at this house again? Yes.
Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen im Casa Aragon. Sehr ruhige Wohngegend. Ausreichend Restaurants und Geschäfte in der Nähe. 10 Minuten bis zum Strand. Guter Ausgangspunkt für Besuch von Palma, aber auch in den Norden der Insel. Zimmer und Bäder waren ok, etwas wärmer hätte es in den Zimmern und Bädern sein können. Wohnzimmer war durch Kamin gut zu heizen. Schöne Terrassen, Frühstück in der Sonne war herrlich. Sehr gute Beschreibung der Anfahrt durch den Vermieter, gute Tipps für Restaurants und Ausflüge.
We had the most wonderful holiday. We took our daughter, mum and a couple of friends. Loved santa ponsa, and perfect location as not too far by car for more livelier night life. Few lovely family evenings round the table were had on the patio with picturesque setting we are already planning our return. See you next year ! Thanks again to grahame couldn't have made it easier :0)
Property exactly as described, spacious, homely and clean. We had a great ten days in very hot weather. The pools are lovely and clean and there was always sun loungers available. The kids mainly used the bottom pool but we used the top pool next to the property, literally a few steps from our front door. the fan didn't work in one of the bedrooms whilst we were there but this was rectified quickly with the provision of a free standing fan during our stay which we were very happy with. Santa Ponsa is a great place to take a family. The villas are situated up a steep hill but we found a short cut after a couple of days, there are steps next to Portofino Restaurant which cuts the killer hill out a bit. Portofino Restaurant was our favourite, good value food and very friendly waiting staff. The only critical thing I could say is that air conditioning would have been beneficial but this was only because there was a heatwave whilst we were there and it was over 35 degrees every day. We will be back, thanks again.
Santa Ponsa is a delightful safe family resort in the most popular and warmest part of the island. The extensive white sandy beaches and gently-sloping shallow waters appeal to all ages: deck chairs, sun shades, beach bars and cafes add to the appeal - as do the parrots living in the pine trees to one side of the main beach. In an established residential area offering panoramic views over the attractive bay of Santa Ponsa, golf courses and lovely countryside which forms the national park, the villa is a 10 minute stroll down to the two beaches, bars, shops and supermarkets. Restaurants in the area vary from budget family eating to 5* gourmet. There are three golf courses, a marina and a scuba-diving school. Cosmopolitan Palma with its cathedral, harbour, historic old town, superb shopping, wide variety of restaurants and sophisticated night-life is only 15 minutes by car or taxi.
Golf: Santa Ponsa has much to offer golfers. There are 3 attractive courses with a fourth, Club de Poniente, only a few minutes away; these courses are of a very high standard. Golf 1, for example, is a par-72 course at 6,106 metres and costs about 75 euros a round.
