In my quest to find a villa in an atractive location in the Balearics for our family of 10 comprising 6 adults from 32- 67, 3 young children and a baby that would be near to the sea yet in a country setting we settled on Ses Caletes Hacienda that ticked all the boxes from the beguiling yet completely accurate images on the website. On arrival we were not dissapointed!
The property has a fabulous fairly isolated location at the head of a wooded valley with a view out over the sea at Cala Vicent about 3km away to the east. We found it quiet and relaxing yet within easy reach of a series of fabulous beaches and convenient small towns.
The slightly salted natural water pool was a delight and even enjoyed by one of our family whose skin cannot tolerate chlorine pools. It has lights for night time and we used it constantly.
The house is relatively modern in what appears to be a typical Ibiza style with a cool comtemporay but slightly rustic modern intrerior that is very attractive. the house is well equipped and fitted out with a number of bathrooms and a kitchen with all the appliances and utensils you could need - just like being at home. We particularly liked the long refrectory trestle table on the covered terrace and happy to self-cater most of the time ate all our meals outside there.
Not all the rooms have air conditioning but there are ceiling fans and fly screens on the windows and you can keep the house cool during the day if you are careful.
It has a private water supply that is filled by tanker. Whilst at one stage we thought it was running out Ana the owner had it filled and whilst we were careful and had to buy bottled water to drink had no issues with this.
The pool is below and slightly remote from the house and whilst not fenced off is safer than many villas where you step right out onto it from the house. There is however no guarding to the upper garden above the high retaining wall but we watched the children and they did not venture out towards the edge.
We had an amazing holiday, loved the house and its location and overall feel and I dont think we could have found better!
