About Jilly and John

Living in Oxfordshire with busy family, social and business lives, we try and visit Canyamel as much as possible.

Our grown up children mainly visit independently with their children, family and friends, but its great to spend time occasionally all together.

Our friends regularly visit with or without us and love the relaxing feel the Villa and surrounding area has, which offers quality time and space.

For us, this place and the area around, are the best on the Island.

Jilly and John purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jilly and John chose Capdepera

If it's the high life of Palma and the hustle of West coast you want, Albatros and and the relaxed atmosphere of Canyamel and surrounding area is not for you.

If its a stunning villa with unparalleled views, local bars and good value restaurants, friendly people and access to beautiful beaches, then Villa Albatros and surrounding locality will not disappoint. Walking, swimming, caves, ancient buildings and monuments, this location has it all.

Another lovely stay...

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Villa Albatros.

It is a very well equipped villa in a quiet, tranquil location overlooking a gorgeous bay and the small town of Canyamel. The sea views are outstanding and on a clear day you can see across to Menorca.

The villa is equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday, very well equipped kitchen, spacious lounge/dining area, comfortable bedrooms with their own bathrooms, outdoor terraces with various areas to sit, lounge or just take in the views.

The pool is a generous size and the recent addition of the hot tub was great to use!

Canyamel has all the basics you could want in a small resort, several restaurants, a pretty beach with beach chairs and umbrellas for hire, a couple of beach bars and two small supermarkets. A 15 minute drive to Cala Ratjada gives you the choice of larger supermarkets with good selections of food and wine/beer.

Overall highly recommended!

Unforgettable view, private yet home from home

  • 5 of 5

The Albatros was a delight. We found the house to be a wonderful oasis giving all of us a feeling of truly being away. The house is set on the side of a hill so 2nd gear was the highest we got in the car. There is off road parking. A series of steps take us down into the house from the front gate. The house itself was immaculate but still held a sense of being a home too. Arriving in temperatures of 36degs meant the swimming pool simply wet us instead of cooling. The next few days the temperature fell and the pool was delight to use. There is also a Jacuzzi which was used every day.

Each bedroom has a/c which meant we could sleep comfortably. The kitchen was large and well stocked with many utensils and crockery. Maybe for the size of home more plastic glasses could be provided as we were very aware of using normal glasses by the pool. The steps down into the house had some over grown minature palm which covered the steps could be cut back to have a good view of the steps. Those two are such small niggles whilst the whole experience was a joy. The owner provided a wealth of information specially of restaurants available in the town. We visited two and neither disappointed.

We would dearly love to return there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for an excellent review Patricio and the very helpful points you make. We do have more plastic glasses going to the house from the UK, as they tend to disappear throughout the season. We obviously need to check more often and replenish as necessary. I tend to prune the palms on the step planters myself, but have not been there since May. They have clearly grown excessively, so i will cut them back in a couple of weeks when we are there and arrange to have them cut every month, throughout the year when we are not there. Great suggestions, which i much appreciate. Thanks and hopefully welcome you back again soon. Best regards, John

Gorgeous villa, beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

Holiday was lovely, pool nice and clean, excellent facilities. Beds comfy, good showers and nice quiet, not overlooked by anyone. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Only tiny criticism (and this is being very picky) is the plants beside the entrance stairs could be cut back a bit - otherwise perfect! Whole family really enjoyed stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks Heather, we have just returned from Majorca and as you said, when we arrived i was shocked at the way the entrance steps had been over grown by the palms. All cut back and now looking great, which is how they will remain. Must have been the automatic watering and long hot weather caused rapid growth. Hope to hear from you again. John

perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas in lots of countries and this was one of the best. The villa was so well equipped we had everything we could possibly want and all spotlessly clean. The owner was easy to contact and very helpful with restaurant recommendations and foolproof directions to the villa. Stefan was friendly and welcoming and although we didn't need him we felt he was there for us.

We had several bbq's overlooking the bay - what a view -and made good use of both pool and hot tub ?

We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Albatros to anyone who wants a relaxing time away with family or friends.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Oh wow, where do we begin? We are 4 very discerning, modern, adventurous ladies of a certain age that holiday every year in Europe. Having had very disappointing visits to Menorca & Ibiza, we now believe we have found the most perfect villa in the Balearics! The accommodation is spacious, clean, well appointed & very welcoming. There are so many little extras that we appreciated & were not expecting that we immediately felt at home. So lovely to have ice on tap in the fridge, ceiling fans outside even under the naya in the shade, & electric blinds to give plenty of shade when needed by the pool. The owners are a complete joy & Stefan, the on site manager, was most helpful even when we were being a bit dense with certain gadgets.We definitely hope to return for the panoramic views alone! Thank you John & Jill.
