Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Maria de la Salut - Casa Ana

Beautiful, brand new stone villa, sleeps 6, self catering

A gorgeous, newly built stone villa, set in magnificent gardens, with large sweeps of lawn charmingly dotted with flowers and trees, all overlooking a delightful semi rural view of the northern central Majorcan countryside. It has a large shady terrace, and being in an elevated position, is refreshed with balmy cool breezes. At night the lit up church from the neighbouring village lends a romantic, medieval atmosphere. The villa consists of 2 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a well appointed kitchen, with open plan dining and living area, and extra sleeping available on the mezzanine floor over the kitchen. The style of the villa is rustic, with high ceilings and wood beams. The outdoor swimming pool is nestled invitingly in paved stone surroundings, which flow on from the terrace and built-in barbecue, and leads onto the lovely garden area. The villa is a short stroll from the typical Majorcan village of Maria de la Salut, which is well away from the mainstream tourism.

Unspoilt Mallorca: Northern central Mallorca is rural, unspoilt, and untouched by mass tourism. Walk from the villa into the tiny village of Maria de la Salut, and you will only see local Majorcans, giving you a friendly smile as they go about their business. Join them in the evenings as they gather in the village square, old people and young families, enjoying the cool of the evening, for a feeling of stepping back into time. The village has 3 or 4 very good restaurants, where you can sample the excellent local Majorcan cuisine, along with international dishes. In August, there is a night market every Friday night, selling locally made produce. On the last Friday in August, there is a special medieval fair, guaranteeing entertainment for all the family. From the villa is a lovely view right across the low rolling countryside, and in the distance, the jagged hills which enfold Colonia San Pedro, a charming and unspoilt fishing village - also worth a visit for swimming, and panoramic coastal views.

Sineu - neighbouring town: Just 6km away, and with a daily bus service, is the town of Sineu. This is a much larger village, and has a good variety of shopping, bars, cafes, and many excellent restaurants. However, it is best known for its farmer´s market every Wednesday morning. Here, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables, clothing, shoes, and handicrafts, you can find antiques,and a variety of live animals for sale, including sheep, horses, donkeys, chickens, and even puppies and kittens! It makes for a very pleasant morning, and the market winds through the whole town, which in itself is an architectural pleasure. Sineu also connects by train to Inca (famous for shoes and leather produce) and onto Palma, the capital.

Wonderful, tranquil holiday in a beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

Planning for a holiday is always a little bit of a rollercoaster ride - the anticipation and excitement of going somewhere new where you can relax from daily routine and pressure of work is often tempered by the anxiety of whether you have made the right decisions in where you are going to stay and whether it will meet expectation and be value for money.

Villa Ana does not disappoint. She sits high on the slopes of Maria de la Salut overlooking the central plains of Mallorca towards the distant hills offering a comfortable and entirely private, secure hideaway with a fabulous, pristine pool.

The villa is spacious, well maintained and well equipped with all the essentials plus dish washer, washing machine, television and hairdryer. There has been an enormous amount of thought given to what makes a difference to your stay - towels of all sizes and for all purposes, fans to keep you cool, heaters, blankets and throws to keep you warm, books, games, guidebooks. The sitting room is a comfortable and welcoming space and the kitchen / diner table is huge with ample space to seat 6 -8 people. What really stands out are the little touches and accessories which add to the charm and ambiance of the property such as the candles and attractive tea light containers scattered around the house and terrace which make the evenings quite romantic and magical.

The upper, covered terrace is glorious with huge BBQ, generous dining table and more comfy seating overlooking the pool, gardens and the view across the valley. The pool area is well thought out with recliners and sails for shade and and lawn beyond the terracing. The water is inviting day and night and the perfect temperature to cool you down but not freeze you which makes midnight swims equally enjoyable!

The gardens extend all around the villa with shady lawned areas, mature shrubs and trees laden with fruit and vibrant flowers. It is fun to pick almonds, olives, pomegranates, kumquat, lemons, oranges and herbs for cooking.

The centre of the small town of Maria is only 5-10 minutes walk where you can find groceries, banks, bars and restaurants. The main square is the community focal point with weekly market and occasional evening dancing. It is easy access to beaches, mountains and Palma from Maria.

Our thanks go to Ana and Xisca for whom nothing was too much trouble and helped to ensure our holiday was memorable for all the right reasons. I thoroughly recommend Villa Ana - it is a restorative sanctuary.

Strongly recommend this villa - idyllic!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this villa after alot of research and it has been exactly what we wanted. This was a high quality villa, set in a rural location within walking distance of a village. The photographs are an exact representation of the villa and the views are breathtaking.

The lady who dealt with us in the UK was excellent and v knowledgable about the villa and local amenities. Anna who met us was very friendly and was available should we have needed her.

The villa description was totally accurate and was spotlessly clean and well maintained.

We would all recommend this villa (2 adults and a 14 and 17 year old) if you want a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

We did activities in Alcudia, beach in Calla Agulla and Palma - all approx 45 mins away. There are beaches nearer but we wanted a more unspoilt one.

We enjoyed eating in the local village square which is 10 mins away as is the local shop.

Perfect villa and a great holiday - you'll love it!

Owner's Response: As the advertiser of this beautiful property, this glowing review is music to my ears! Photos often don't do a property justice, so it is nice to know they were spot on for these guests - as well as the description. I really can't think of anything else to add - my reviewers have said it all! This is a very special property, extremely well situated and well cared for by the owner, Anna, and her family. Welcome back to these very happy guests, and welcome all first time holiday makers!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed 8 nights at the villa. Villa was perfectly located for visiting different parts of Mallorca by car. Small village of Maria de Salut was nicely on the walking distance and people of the village were so kind that you felt welcomed.

The villa Casa Ana was great! The garden, pool, view over the landscape... I personally enjoyed mornings: having breakfast on the terraca and the view over to the next village of Ariany, the medieval church on top of the hill...sounds of the country side...

And when you felt like swimming, just jum to the pool. I can agree with earlier comments that you almost felt that you wouldn't like to leave the villa at all, but rather stay there...

Rooms were well furnished and it was also helpfull to have washing machine and dishwasher for your use.

And many thanks to Ana and Desna who made our stay as smooth as possible. Ana

responded to our needs well when ever we has any questions or problems during our stay and Desna gave us many helpfull tips before our arrival.

All in all I warmly recommend Casa Ana for your next stay in Mallorca.

Owner's Response: A very warm thank you to this family who, like many other guests, have found Casa Ana to be a marvellous place for a holiday! I can't add much more to this glowing report - it is a very special property indeed, away from the main steam tourism, so it is a little slice of paradise for those seeking to 'get away from it all'! Everything is leisurely - from the morning coffee on the terrace, to a lazy swim, al fresco BBQ, or a stroll down to the village, where as commented in this review, the local Majorcans are friendly and welcoming. Welcome back to our reviewers, and welcome all 'first timers' - you are in for a treat!

Perfect, no need to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year (sorry not sure of dates..) with two toddlers and 4 adults. The house is so lovely. Well equipped, plenty of space, a lovely kitchen and dining area inside and outside. The pool and gardens are lovely and secluded with great views. We did a lot of picking perfectly ripe apricots, cherries and lemons off the trees at the end of the garden.

I would say that it was not ideal for kids age 1-2 because of the stairs inside and outside but we managed and ended up barricading the inside stairs with a bookcase.

Ana was helpful and friendly. She rigged up the shade sails as it was the first week of sun for a few weeks.

All in all a wonderful place, we felt like royalty! The photos do not do the garden or interior justice. We are looking at going away again this summer and are struggling to find anything comparable. We may be back!

Thank you very much.

Stunning villa !! Amazing holiday !!

  • 5 of 5

Whilst searching for a villa for our family ( 2 adults 2 kids age 6 ) holiday I kepy being drawn back to the photos of Casa Ana. I was a little worried it may not live up to the photos but I can honestly say we were not disappointed.From start to finish the booking / communcation with Desna & the Villa's owner Ana has been fantastic. Desna gave great directions for us to get from the airport to the windmill restaurant where we were met by Ana's father Juan.

The villa & grounds are truly beautiful with stunning views from the terrace. We could even pick our own fruit from the bottom of the garden. Set in a semi rural location we felt very secure with a large iron gate securing the entrance.The kids were made up that on arrival at the villa we were greeted by a black & white female cat which they called Meow meow! it came to light in the morning that Meow meow had 3 kittens so of course we had to look after them & feed them daily :)

We did venture out to the village which was literally a 5 min walk most evenings for food & drink & the local people were very friendly & hospitable. On one of the evenings there was a craft market & another a fiesta. We also went to Marineland in Palma which was a good day out with fanastic dolphin & sealion shows & Alcudia beach. Hand on heart I can say this was the best family holiday we have had & will definately be coming back! My husband even commented that it was the first time he has ever been able to relax from day 1 on holiday

With regards to the previous comments abouit noise from the brick factory we had 1 day (wed) where we experienced a little noise but this did not affect our holiday in the slightest.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that this family enjoyed their holiday at Casa Ana - they have really appreciated all the features of this finca which make it such a great holiday home - superb setting and views, beautiful villa, gorgeous gardens and wonderful pool! Add to this the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of the village, the great beaches of the north coast of Mallorca only 15 - 20 mins drive away - and you have a perfect recipe for a fantastic holiday! Welcome back to my reviewers (the cats are waiting for you!!) and welcome also to all those that have not yet sampled the wonderful holiday that Casa Ana can offer!

An Easter break!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Mallorca before this trip but our family of 4 (Mum, Dad, daughter aged 6 and son aged nearly 3), found it to be a delight. Our enquiry and booking was dealt with by Desna who made it feel effortless. After a very easy drive from the airport we were met by Ana, the fabulously welcoming owner, who had made sure that we had some essentials on arrival including a bottle of Rioja.

As for the Villa, it was perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace, having breakfast, reading or simply enjoying the unbroken view of the church at Ariany on the horizon (which was conveniently flood lit at night time). The pool, although it looked incredibly inviting, was resisted beyond a paddle with the kids purely because of the time of year. The facilities overall are very comfortable, with a shower that is almost too good as once in it you don't want to get out of it! The children (not natural animal lovers) were quickly in the habit of feeding the two local cats their morning snacks.

The villa is in Maria and the village feels traditionally Mallorcan. It is situated only a short walk from the square in the centre of Maria where we enjoyed a coffee in the morning, a bite to eat or a couple of cervezas and vino blancos in the early evening. Whilst tourists seemed to regularly frequent Maria, it felt like you were predominantly mixing with the friendly locals. The countryside surrounding Maria was peaceful and tranquil and the coast was a pleasant and short drive away.

Overall, we found a very comfortable and relaxing villa in a traditional Mallorcan village.

Owner's Response: On behalf of Ana, the owner, and myself, I would like to thank this family for their positive and engaging description of the villa, village and surrounds. Yet another family seduced and entranced by this very wonderful property - one of Mallorca's best kept secrets! To future holiday makers: come and try this great property for yourself - the stunning views, the gorgeous gardens, peaceful surroundings (it is well away from the mainstream tourism) and beautiful villa - you won't be disappointed! To our reviewers: a hearty welcome back, and if you stay between the months of May and October, it will be the pool you won't be able to get out of, not the shower!!! Many thanks, and best regards, Desna.

Car: recommended

'Far from the madding crowd' would sum up this beautiful villa. It is located on the edge of the small rural village of Maria de la Salut - where life is still based on local traditions, not mass tourism!

The village is a 5min walk from the finca, and has small locally run grocers and bakeries etc. for daily provisions. There are 2 or 3 good restaurants, and more in the neighbouring village of Sineu, 6km away, which is full of character. Here there is a very popular farmer's market every Wednesday morning.

The nearest beach is the Bay of Alcudia - a 12km long beach with pristine white sand, with the popular beach resorts of Ca'n Picafort (15 mins) and Puerto Alcudia (25 mins) drive away.

Near the finca (about 400 mts), there is a small blockwork factory. Although nearly defunct, a low background noise may occasionally be heard from this site. It is almost completely hidden, and does not detract from the wonderful views from the finca, or disturb the countryside peace and quiet.

Other Activities: rambling, bird watching, cycling
