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.
