About Tony Lane
My wife and I first visited Campanet in 2005 and knew immediately that we would love to live there. The vibrant life of the village,rustic historic buildings, restaurants, bars and sports center appealed to both us and our children. When we found a large piece of land right on the edge of the village, looking out over the Tramuntana Range, the thirteenth-century church of St Michael and the Bay of Alcudia we decided to buy it and renovate the house that was already there. We found a builder who worked in the traditional style and located old doors and windows, tiles and furniture. We live there as much as we can each year and although we promise ourselves that we will visit the rest of Spain, there is so many things to do locally that we hardly ever to manage it. In fact, we have trouble travelling to the other side of Mallorca!
Tony Lane purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Tony Lane chose Campanet
We have found that Campanet is a really good centre to explore the north of Mallorca. The Albufera, near Alcudia, is an intriguing wildlife area, with migrating birds using it as a staging post in their trips between Africa and Europe. You don't even have to go that far however. In fact, a walk through the countryside,down the little lane next to the house, Cami Cristi, is an interesting way of uncovering the layers of Mallorcan history, from the stone-built fincas (farmhouses), to the 13th century church of St Michael, less than a kilometre away. One of the most beguiling aspects of Mallorca is the contrast of contemporary life with the traditional way of life of the villages. Within a space of 5 kilometres, or just by turning a corner, you can travel from the 21st century to the 18th. One of our favorite bike excursions is through Caimari ( stopping for a cup of coffee) and on in a loop to Binibona, along some very beautiful country roads and then back to Campanet.
What makes this Villa unique
Our favourite activities include walking or biking in the countryside, and going to the local markets- Campanet (for fresh produce), Sa Pobla or Pollensa on Sundays are our favourites. We didn't want to be in a car all of the time, so we have 5 bikes for ourselves and our guests. We love walking up to the plaza and joining the locals watching the passing scene, drinking a cup of coffee or a glass of beer or wine.Relaxing in the garden and swimming in our pool is very enjoyable too! It's great to be feel the sun and be surrounded by the sound of nature. Pollenca is only 10-15 minutes away by car. We often take the small, medieval country road along the Campanet Valley to get there. Pollenca has some wonderful restaurants and good shopping ( especially antique shops) as well as great beaches. As the house is on the bike trail from Campanet- Caimari- Lluch- Pollensa, it's an ideal base for serious road cyclists There is a large secure garage suitable for the storage of cycles. Campanet has a good number of cafes and two supermarkets for daily provisions. If you need catering for your group, we can arrange meals and other back-up required.

A fantastic place to stay .
Beautiful property, extremely comfortable and suitable for our group. Wonderful views of the valley and hills and close to the village. We look forward to staying here again.
Wonderful place to stay - can’t rate highly enough - in fact better not say too much as we’ll never get it again!
I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Campanet.
We’d love to have you back!
All the best
Beautiful property, peaceful, wonderful views and within walking distance of the village.
We enjoyed staying local in terms of walking, going to the beach and the markets, and relaxing in the village plaza which is a real community hub.
We are so pleased that our guests enjoyed the house and Campanet. Thank you for being such wonderful guests. We’d love to see you again!
Lovely private property where we have stayed for the last 4 years
Lovely terrace that runs round the property. Fabulous pool & breath taking views.
It has been a delight having Richard and his wife as guests for the last four years.
Return to Campanet
2nd time we have stayed here. Wonderful villa with fabulous vista across to the Tramantana's. The villa has everything you need for a great holiday including a beautiful pool. Campanet itself is pretty magical, and you are within half an hour of Pollensa and Alcudia. What more could you want ??
Thank you for the enthusiastic response!
As owners of Can Tio and inhabitants of Campanet ourselves for part of the year, our only complaint is that Campanet and the surrounding area has so many aspects to explore, we hardly get to visit the rest of Mallorca.
We love our guests feeling the same way!
Great villa, lived up to the reviews
Spent two relaxing weeks in Campanet; the villa is really well located, near enough to amenities but still feeling part of the landscape. Would definitely consider returning.
CAMPANET is in a World heritage area.
Surrounded by fields of almond trees and other crops, Campanet’s silhouette is like that of a postcard village, with stone houses huddled around the church, located in a square that is always lively. Very nearby, the Posada de Biniatró Museum houses a permanent exhibition of works by Miquel Barceló, Ramón Canet and Sirvent, among others. The municipality is home to the scenery of the valley of Sant Miquel and the Pla de Tel plain, frequented by bicycle tourists, the site of the Campanet caves and the Gabellí Petit estate, where the Fonts Ufanes springs bubble up after intense rain.
Weekly market: Tuesday, Saturday
Special interest holidays:

The village of Campanet has many and various cafes and bars, making it fun for groups of cyclists and easy if you don't want to cook at the house.
The house has a large basement, ideal for bike storage.
We have 5 bikes, suitable for riding to the surrounding village cafes
It is approximately 15 minutes drive to the wonderful northern beaches of Alcudia and Pollenca and little more to Muro. Further to the West is the spectacular Formentera Penunsula.Many of Formentera’s beaches are often deserted. you can often find a small, secluded patch of sand all to yourself and not see another living soul for the whole day.
The rugged mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana peak to 1,445 metres and has just become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Airport Palma 35km. Railway Inca 6km. Ferries at Alcudia 15km and Palma 35km. There is a bus from the Plaza in Campanet, which connects with the train station in Inca. The train takes approximately 40 minutes to reach Palma. There is an ancient train from Palma to Soller and an old tram to take you on to Puerto Soller. Generally speaking, car hire is recommended for journeying around the island. We find it easiest to hire a car on arrival at the airport.
Inca 6km-traditional bodega restaurants,leather goods and fashion wear. Sa Pobla 4km- excellent Sunday market. Pollensa 17km- shops, restaurants and beaches. Alcudia 15km- restaurants and beaches. Palma 35km- shopping, galleries, churches etc.
Caves of Alcudia 1km. Caimari, just up the road, has excellent restaurants .The Monastry of Lluc approx 10km, via Caimari village.
There are many good restaurants in the area. Our favourites are in Llubi, near Alaro and Santa Magdalena.
There are numerous opportunities in Mallorca for outdoor activities , including hiking and biking. The area around the village is a draw for those keen to see all of the amazing wildlife on the island of Mallorca and you may want to spend a day exploring the surrounding countryside on foot. If you like rocky landscapes and breathtaking views, the panoramas around here are really spectacular.
The nearby Tramuntana Range has a host of walks, some of them following mule tracks. The trails are usually very old and were used to connect the remote Fincas among each other and with the bigger villages. As a result, a wide range of hikes is offered, from the half-day trip to an excursion of two or more days. On your way you will discover deserted Fincas, ancient snow houses, charcoal burner's huts, lime kilns and terraces. The village of Sóller and the Monastery of Lluc are the most important - and most popular - starting points for the hikes. If you would like a guided hike, we can arrange one with a local English speaking guide, tailored to your level of fitness.
We also spend many happy days cycling from village to village, a not too strenuous activity, as the villages ( and cafes) are rarely more than 5 kms. distance from each other . The house has 5 bicycles available to guests. There is a network of tiny roads , making this a safe activity.
Campanet and each of the surrounding villages have a market day, where fresh local produce is sold. Market day in Campanet is Tuesday.In the village there are two local bakeries, a delicatessen, butcher, two supermarkets, a stationary shop ( with English newspapers), three banks and a chemist shop as well as six cafes, all centred around the sunny plaza, the social centre of the village.
Activities near Campanet- Tennis and watersports at the sports centre. Horse Riding- Eva can arrange riding, from beginners to expert
