Our detached Studio property is located within the beautiful village of Puigpunyent which is only 15 minutes from Palma and within a World Heritage Site. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Tramuntana mountain range with fantastic views of the valley and mountains. It is an ideal location for keen walkers, cyclists, golfers and those wishing for a tranquil break in a beautiful setting, without being in a tourist area.
The property sleeps 2 (double bed in Studio).
There is a shower room with WC and washbasin, accessed from the Studio. There is a small upper terrace off the Studio shower room where there is a washing machine and drying lines. In the dining area there is an extendable table which can seat up to six people. From the lounge area with digital TV and music player with iPod dock, patio doors lead out to a paved and gravelled garden. Here you relax over a barbecue with a glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of the stunning scenery, watch the eagles soaring overhead, disturbed occasionally by the chime of a goat’s bell. Should you feel a bit more energetic, we also have an outdoor table tennis table!
We have a wood pellet heater which is a great centrepiece, easy to operate and allows the property to be used throughout the year. A bag of pellets is provided for each guest who stays in the Studio during the heating season. Refills are easily available.
Immerse yourself in the village life, take a walk to the bread shop for freshly baked ensaimadas and croissants for breakfast, buy fresh meat, fruit and vegetables from the village store and the Sunday market, or fill a bottle with local wine directly from the vat in the tobacconist; very reasonable both on the pocket and the palette! There are two banks, a medical centre & pharmacy, two good restaurants and of course, the obligatory café bars.
It’s a short walk to the public tennis courts, bar, table tennis and outdoor swimming pool which is open from June to September, for a minimal entrance fee. We have tennis and table tennis equipment in the studio for your use, as well as our own table tennis table which you can use on the terrace.
Puigpunyent is also an ideal location for keen walkers with several mountain routes just a few minutes from the studio. Cycling is also very popular in the mountains; you can hire bikes in Palma.
Nearby (within easy walking distance) is La Reserva private nature reserve with a 3.7km nature trail where you can see indigenous plants and animals from brown bears to turtles. There are hawk displays through the day and, if you feel brave enough, you can ride the zip wire across the valley above the picnic area.
If you prefer sand, sea and sun, there are many beautiful beaches at this end of the island; the nearest one is just a 15 minute drive. Drive a bit further and you can get a boat to the island of Sa Dragonera nature reserve or visit the fishing village of Andratx which has a quayside lined with the most amazing seafood restaurants.
Should you fancy a game of golf, there are a number of good courses on the island. The 63 hole Son Vida complex is no more than 15 minutes away and is the leading golf resort in the Mediterranean.
By day or by night, Palma is well worth going to. Visit the awe inspiring cathedral, explore the Arabic quarter, have a browse around the famous indoor fish market, clothing & shoe shops or sit outside one of the restaurants in the Plaza Mayor with a coffee and watch the world go by. Down by the harbour, there are many good restaurants
