Why Andy Thomas chose Betlem
This is a beautiful unspoilt area of North Mallorca - a hidden gem and not as well known as other areas. The Villas are of very high quality and the facilities are excellent - Gardens, verandas, tennis court and large shared swimming pool. The sea is a short 2 min walk. There are some excellent local restaurants and a wide choice of beaches within a short drive. All this makes for a relaxing holiday in a stunning setting. You will want to come back and de-stress.

We had a fantastic holiday in Betlem, which we really think is the nicest place to stay in Majorca if, like us, you want beautiful scenery and peace and quiet, even in the middle of August. It is a very upmarket enclave, mostly with large detached houses nestled in the pine forest. The villa development is an opportunity to stay amongst all this splendour, at a much more reasonable price.
Saying that, the villa is very spacious, has every amenity that you might expect and a few more that you wouldn’t. Even with outside temperatures in the upper 30’s the villa remained cool with windows open and shutters closed. We spent a lot of time on the upstairs and downstairs balconies, which have beautiful views over the pool towards the mountains. The pool area is large and never got very busy, and the tennis court was free whenever we wanted to use it.
There is no sandy beach at Betlem, but there are a couple of intimate little coves where you can sunbathe and swim. We did some fantastic snorkelling here, and loved walking in the nature reserve, which is only a five minute walk from the front door. Overall, highly recommended.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in betlem. It is a great place to relax and unwind in the sunshine with beautiful views
Spacious, nicely located
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Betlem. Beautiful area and the property was first class. Lots of room, well equipped and maintained. WiFi and sat tv all nice to have. 2 excellent restaurants close by with many more a 5minute drive away on Colony St Pere.
Private home with swimming pool and tennis courts
Located in an isolated part of Majorca, far from the crowds and close to secluded beaches. Quiet home idea for those wanting peace and time away from everything (no wifi).
Easy to get to the lovely beaches of Cala Mesquida (1hr) and Cap De Formentor (1.5hrs) and Palma (1.5hrs).
House has everything you need, cooker, fridge, mircowave, sofas, comfortable beds, chairs, tables etc, and a lovely balcony to main bedroom. (Main bed could be bigger but still comfortable). Fans provided to keep one cool in the hot summer days and nights.
All in all, a nice place to stay and use as a base to see everything else in Palma if you do not want to be in a main town
Quiet, relaxing, excellent walks, beautiful views across the bay.
Very well appointed villa, clean with plenty of room for 4 persons. Betlem is a wonderful location at the base of the mountains abutting the sea. Rocky shoreline, beach at Colonia 3 km away, fantastic beaches a short drive 15/20mins e.g Cala Torta. Lovely shared pool but cool as unheated, also over looked by block of flats. Natural park is stunning especially if you enjoy walking or bird watching. Spectacular views.
Highly recommend the villa and area if you enjoy quiet, away from tourist crowds and a sense of the "real Mallorca"
Mallorquinisch gemütlich, liebevoll eingerichtet, super familienfreundlich, Meerblick
Super wohl gefühlt! Alles wie beschrieben und auf Bildern. Viel Platz, viel Zubehör, Grill, Trockner, CDs, Filme, Küchenausstattung, Kinderstuhl etc. an alles gedacht. Und seit neuestem entgegen alter Kritik auch WLAN (auch wenn man das auf Mallorca & im Urlaub nicht braucht ;) ). Guter Ausgangspunkt für Wandern, Baden, Ausflüge. Ab März auch frische Croissants u.a. um die Ecke. Ab vom Trubel der Touri-Städte - toll! Ausflüge u.a. auf den Markt in Arta (Dienstag), Sant Salvador (Ausblick) und nach Cala Figuera empfehlenswert.
Es war für uns wie nach Hause kommen - auch für unsere kleine 1-jährige Tochter :) Für mich am schönsten der Blick von der Terrasse am Schlafzimmer aufs Meer. Dankeschön Andy!
gut, aber kein WiFi
Die Betten haben ein Fußteil. Für große Leute evtl. unpassend.
Es gibt eine schattenspendende Terrasse und den darüberliegenden Balkon, von dem man Nachts schön in die Sterne schauen kann.
Der Pool ist recht groß. Das Wasser war angenehm, nicht zuviel Chlor.

Large sandy beach - Colonia de sant Pere - 3 km. You can dine on the promenade and watch your children play on the beach or swim in the sea.
