|Minimum Stay||7 - 14 nights|
You will love this house (300 sq meters) and its watchtower, overlooking the Mediterranea with stunning sea views. The house has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Linen in particular is 5 stars hotel quality. The entrance porch, living room, dining room, study and TV room are luxuriuosly furnished and decorated with large contemporary photos from renowned artists. The kitchen area in particular is located underneath a large porch with large glass sliding doors. With sea view it opens on the swimming pool area so that meals can be prepared or cooked while fully participating to the life and animation of the rest of the group. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the usual appliances (german brands) and comprises a large table sitting 8. Wrapped with covered terraces the house is naturally ventilated and ceiling fans can provide with additional cooling. For the winter season, the house is heated with a floor heating system. A comfortable separate laundry room completes the technical equipment of the house. Of course it goes without saying that a high speed WIFI is available.
There is an outside kitchen well equipped with Plancha, BBQ, fridge, etc. where the cook will operate in front of the sea and serve directly his guests sitting around a table well protected from the sun by a large covered porch overlooking cala Macs.
A heated infinity pool is adjacent on the east side of the house and children friendly. Its access is also protected.
The property is ringfenced with stone walls wich is safe for children and assures a high degree of privacy.
Parking facilities for up to three cars are available on the property.
Sea access is possible at the low end of the property. Nothing replaces a swim in the waves. Not recommended though if the sea is rough as getting off the water can then be difficult.
Besides the main house also called the "Upper house", there is a second house on the property, the "Casita" which is decorated, furnished and has a shower room and a fully equipped kitchen. Separated from the "Upper house" by the pool area it is also at a lower level. So it is close but completely distinct with its own private access. Built the traditional way with stones and with its large glass sliding doors it is the perfect combination of contemporary architecture and ancient stone work. From the spacious main room you have a breath taking view on the Cala Macs on one side and the gardens on the other. Normally the Casita is not for rent but should it be requested for special guests, parents or friends, the issue could be discussed. Needless to say that the Casita would not be occupied by another party than the one renting the Upper House.
The house was built in the early sixties but has been constantly maintained, renovated and even extended so that it now is a nice combination of traditional architecture with contemporary additions providing all the necessary accommodations for stays at any season of the year.
The property is two acres large, one half , on the south , is overlooking the sea and planted with century old olive trees and specific mediterranean vegetation like Alep pine trees. On the north side of the property you will find fields planted with almond trees, more olive trees and palm trees. The whole estate is ringfenced with the traditional stone wall and coming from Cala Santanyi, you will drive 50 meters following the signs 'Es Pontas' on a private road before seeing the gate to Es Maressos. The parking and the house are 25 meters further.
The estate is actually part of a greater zone, state protected because of archeological interest. Hence there are no other constructions close by except for the only one existing before 1960. The view point on the Pontas attracts visitors but the property is safe and very private.
Cala Santanyi which is at a 5 minutes walk from the property offers not only its white sandy beach but also 3 restaurants and a small supermarket where you will find all the necessary to supply the house in food, wine etc and more importantly freshly cooked bread available daily from 08:30 a.m.
The village of Santany is 3 miles away. You will find all the shops, restaurants, services, super markets etc... and twice a week (wednesdays and Saturdays) a colorful and animated market invades the center at this otherwise quite village.
Many sightseeing points are worth your visit: The fish harbor of Cala Figuera (2 miles), The marinas of Cala d'Or or Porto Petro (10 miles) with their bordering restaurants, the white sandy beaches of S'Amarador, Es Trench, Llombards, all of them being close. Of course the closest remains the Cala Santanyi beach which can be reached with a 5 minutes walk. The view point of La Consolacio is also worth a visit, besides its spectacular view point on the entire area with the Island of Cabrera in the distance there is also this little church dedicated to the Mother ot the Christ where people can rest, think or pray. All these places are wihin a radius of 10 miles.
A little further you have of course the city of Palma, not to be misssed on any account, the northern side of the island with its mountains etc. Guides are available in the study of the house.

Es Maressos is a family estate that has been ours for over half a century now. The main house is usually occupied by us or our children and only occasionally rented. We consider that we make it available to guests to enjoy a moment of rest and to relax. The income contributes to maitaining the property in pristine condition.
Personalized welcome, often by the owners themselves. Professional service and if requested, additional services: cleaning, cooking etc...
State of the house and its equipment is impeccable: appliances, china, beds, linen and towels, everything is of high standard and recent if not new.
Es Maressos is not situated in a development. Although not isolated, calm and privacy are guaranteed.
The property is walking distance from the Cala Santanyi beach and several restaurants/bars as well as a small supermarket very convenient for last minute shopping or morning freshly cooked bread. Although convenient a car is not compulsory when you stay at Es Maressos.
Sea or back countryviews are breath taking.
Security has been taken in consideration: pool is secured and the house is ring fenced with stone walls, so kids can play safely in tha patios even if nothing replaces the parents watch.
Four guest rooms in three distinct sleeping areas each with an en suite bath or shower room.
The outside kitchen with sea view is a real plus. During the summer, life is really outdoor between the pool the covered porches and the outside kitchen/dining place.
Classic but quality mediterranean architecture. Antiques and contemporary furniture, decorated with large original photos from renown artists.
For large families or families accompanied by help or a nanny, possibility to rent (for a supplement) the 'casita', an adjacent though independant smaller guest house fully equipped with shower room and kitchen.
Sea acces at the bottom of the property.
Gardens full of local mediterranean trees: Alep pines, olive, palm, almond trees, etc. offering a large variety of refreshing green colors.
Golf, boating, sea diving, hicking etc... as sport is concerned. Restaurants abound in the area and Palma with its shopping, museums or night live is only 45 minutes away.
We were two families that enjoyed the house very much during 2 weeks. The location is great. Easy access to restaurants and the beach of Cala Santanyui but still private with and easy to just stay at the house relaxing, enjoying the pool and diving off the cliffs just below the house. We did not miss anything in the house and everything was of premium quality. The hosts were easy, attentive and everything went smooth during our stay.
We had a wonderful say at Es Maressos. The house let's you know that you are on vacation the moment you arrive. The setting is gorgeous with the cliffs and beautiful blue sea just below. There is also a wonderful infinity pool where you can relax and cool off while enjoying the view. The house is spacious and flowing with plenty of room for an extended stay with family or family and friends. The town and beach are a short walk away and there's a local shop to get any essentials that you need. The location is an easy drive from Palma and also close to many lovely beaches and interesting sites. Santanyi, a quick drive, also offers some excellent restaurants. The owner, Len, was very helpful and responsive, making sure we were all set for our stay. He even recommended a wonderful woman to help cook and babysit. No doubt you would enjoy your time here.
Superbly well- maintained and very well equipped. Everything is well thought out and safe! The views from the watchtower are indescribably beautiful.
The infinity pool is great .We had a toddler with us and the shelter afforded by the wall together with the gentle steps into the pool made water play safe and easy. There were also lots of children's blow- up toys for the pool .
The infinity pool was just lovely .... We all spent many hours gazing out to sea while keeping cool. The terraces were ideal for sunbathing and we had some memorable family meals outdoors.
With the beach being only a short walk away it was an ideal situation for us all.
I cannot praise this villa enough.... We had a wonderful holiday!
In einer der schönsten Gegenden auf Mallorca mit traumhaften Stränden liegt das bezaubernde Anwesen Es Maressos, wo wir eine wunderschöne Ferienwoche verbringen durften. Es fällt einem schwer, sich nicht in die atemberaubende Weitsicht über dem Meereshorizont zu verlieben. Auf der Terrasse neben dem einladenden Infinity Pool haben wir abends bei einem Glas Wein immer wieder die Aussicht genossen, dem Rauschen des Meeres und dem Zirpen der Grillen zugehört. Das war für uns Entspannung pur!
Das Anwesen liegt in einem Naturschutzgebiet und wir fühlten uns sehr privilegiert, für eine Woche Es Maressos als unser Zuhause auf Mallorca nennen zu dürfen. Da uns auch Petrus mit stets sonnigem Wetter bestens gesinnt war genossen wir die angenehme Meeresbrise im Aussenbereich des Anwesens und waren jeweils nur kurz am Strand. Dabei haben wir im Infinity Pool immer wieder eine Abkühlung genossen. Das Haus verfügt auch über einen direkten Zugang (ca. 3 Minuten) zum Meer, wo man herrlich schnorcheln oder für gute Schwimmer auch an den Strand der Cala Llombards schwimmen kann.
Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und ausgestattet, ein toller Mix zwischen alten rustikalen Möbeln aber auch neuen modernen Einrichtungsgegenständen, welche sich sehr harmonisch ergänzen. Wir waren mit einem kleinen Baby da und die Besitzer haben uns ein Babybett zur Verfügung gestellt. Besonders geschätzt haben wir die Sauberkeit im Haus und wir merkten, dass sehr viel Wert auf Hygiene gesetzt wird, was natürlich auch für uns mit dem Baby sehr wichtig war.
Wir waren jeweils am Markt (Mittwochs- und Samstagsvormittag) im nahegelegenen Santany einkaufen, wo nebst frischem Gemüse auch immer Fisch vom Tagesfang auf unserer Einkaufsliste stand. Die bestens ausgestattete Outdoor-Küche mit der Plancha bot uns eine geniale Infrastruktur bei der Zubereitung von unseren Spezialitäten. Im Dorf gibt es auch einen kleinen Shop der in Gehdistanz (5 Minuten) erreichbar ist, falls doch kleine Besorgungen notwendig waren.
Wir können dieses Haus nur weiterempfehlen, in unseren Augen muss es eines der schönsten mietbaren Anwesen auf Mallorca sein. Wir hatten übrigens die Freude, die Eigentümer bei unserer Anreise persönlich kennen lernen zu dürfen. Sie sind sehr nett und herzlich und man spürt, dass dieses Haus aus der Familiengeneration mit viel Liebe gepflegt wird.
Wir waren für eine Woche mit unseren Kindern sowie deren Kollegen (2E, 5K), alle im Alter zwischen 13-18, in dieser wunderschön gelegenen Villa. In diesem Haus kommt man an und ist sofort in den Ferien angekommen. Die Ruhe, Abgeschiedenheit, Aussicht, das wunderschöne Haus selber, der hübsche Garten, lässt einem gleich in den Entspannmodus fallen. In diesem Haus und an diesem Ort haben wir wunderschöne Ferien verbringen dürfen. Der Infinity Pool hat zum Spielen aber auch Relaxen eingeladen. Das angrenzende Meer lädt zum Hineinspringen und Abkühlen ein. Die Terrasse war während dem ganzen Aufenthalt unser Frischluft-Wohnzimmer wo gegessen, Spiele gespielt und Gespräche miteinander bis tief in die Nacht geführt wurden. Das Frühstück, die zahlreichen Mittag- und Abendessen hier auf der Terrasse mit einer traumhaften Aussicht, werden wir in unvergesslicher Erinnerung behalten. Die Kinder wollten gar nie in das nahe gelegene Dorf, da im und um das Haus alles ihren sowie unseren Erwartungen entsprach. Das Haus bietet genügend Möglichkeiten für den Einzelnen auch mal eine private Ecke zu finden (der grosse Garten, die Veranda mit Liegen, die vielen Zimmer, etc.). Das Haus sowie die Küche ist technisch bestens ausgestattet und mit dem vorhandenen Grill wird jeder Mann zum Koch ;-)
Ein grosses Dankeschön, dass wir an diesem wunderbaren Ort unsere Ferien verbringen durften!

We stayed two weeks in this lovely house and had the most relaxing time ever. As this were our first time in Mallorca, we were amazed how, going on the other side of the world wouldn't be more efficient to cut from our stressful life.
This place is not one of those soulless villa you could find everywhere. It's the most locally designed house, build out of tech wood and marble of the island. It a place filled with charm and in total symbiosis with the nature. We truly felt this place was built with love over generations. Moreover, the quality of pretty much everything in the house has nothing to be afraid from any palace hotel.
We used to walk everyday down to the sea just in front of the house to swim and eat right after the freshest food from the divine local market. If you like walking, Mallorca hides treasures everywhere and it's really worth discovering the Island.
My only regret was not to get a blood test and see my doctor's reaction when I came back !
I must say that the owners where incredibly caring and sweet, giving us advice about excellent restaurants and activities. They truly know it !
I would finally advice that, if you would like to avoid the season's peek, spring in Mallorca is dreamy, with all the almond trees covered with flowers and in autumn the light turn gold and it is probably one of the best moment to enjoy the place. The heated pool makes it enjoyable almost all year round !
A big thank you for this magical stay !
On the eastern shore of Mallorca, 40 miles away from the capital, Palma de Mallorca, Cala Santany is renowned for its beach and the coves that abound on that side of the island.
Es Maressos, as the locals name the place, is a 2 acres waterfront property, no more than 500 meters from the Cala Santanyi beach. The house, built in the early sixties, sits on top of the cliff and overlooks the Cala Mars which by westerly winds is a safe place for boats. They moor in front of the house and at times there are no less than a dozen of them, which in itself is an attraction.
The sea is accessible at the bottom of the property and, truely, nothing is vore revigorating than swimming in the sea. Since the very seaside is public property, we never facilitated the access to the rock platform from which you jump into the deep sea or sunbath after a swim, just to avoid seeing it invaded by other people. Hence the last meter to access this platform needs a little exercise.
The property faces the Pontas, a huge stone arch in the sea.
For more info, pictures and explanations also in german and french, check the website www. Es-Maressos.com or click on the link provided by Abritel-Home Away in the advertisement.
The area of Santanyi is also worth discovering: the Vall d'Or golf club in only 10 miles away. With its 18 holes, it is one of the best golf courses on the island. Besides golf courses in the area, there are also harbors where boats can be chartered for the day or day trips to Cabrera can be arranged. Numerous restaurants offering all sorts of cuisine also expect your visit. We provide a list of those places that we like with their address and telephone.
