Bedrooms 2
Space 1,076 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Freestanding 2 bedroom house, 2 bathrooms, natural pool, in 15,000m2 land

The house was completed in May 2014 and is of striking architectural design. It is an example of modern Mediterranean architecture - light, airy and sunny. It is on one level and has beautiful panoramic views of the Tramuntana mountain range, of 3 nearby villages - Selva, Moscari and Campanet - and of its own vineyard and olive orchard. The interior is full of light and a special design feature are the high windows that allow the winter sunshine to warm the house, but with an overhang that prevents direct sunlight from entering in the summer. The house is well-insulated with ecological wood fibre material, in accordance with the latest standards, important both in winter and summer. Far from main roads, you can spend some days in quiet natural surroundings and enjoy the exceptional beauty of the area. There is a natural swimming-pool, which means it is filtered by plants rather than chlorine. It is like swimming in the clear green water of a river or lake, friendly to skin and hair. Unlimited internet, download speed 7 Mbs.

It is ideally located 5 min drive from Inca, which is a good shopping centre, 20 minutes away from the sea - the beaches of Alcudia and Pollença, and in the rural heart of the island. 5 kms from the foot of the mountains with many interesting walks within easy distance. There are 4 pretty villages not more than 3 km from the house with old stone houses, cafés, restaurants and small shops - Campanet, Moscari, Caimari and Selva.

About Tim Dyas

Marisa is from the south of Spain, has lived many years in the Canary Islands and for the last 12 years in Mallorca.

She is a yoga teacher and gives classes locally.

Tim is British and has lived in Mallorca for most of the last 45 years. He has worked as a translator for German and Spanish and as project manager for the renovation of old houses. These days we both make our own organic wine, produce enough olive oil and fruit for our own consumption.

This part of Mallorca is exceptionally beautiful and peaceful and the house has views across the countryside up to the impressive mountains of Massanella and Tomir.

It was built to high technical standards with a loving attention to detail. We keep it in perfect condition and want our guests to be happy here.

The villa was very lovely, fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant week in this villa. The property was lovely - really well designed with everything we needed. Tim and Marisa were extremely helpful and have created a lovely retreat from the real world! Our two children loved the grounds and the pool, and had great fun exploring and playing. The patio was a favourite place for all of us and the marvellous views of the mountains made sitting there perfect. The villa had the perfect mix of being in beautiful countryside away from it all but near enough to the beach and towns. Would thoroughly recommend this villa to both families and adults looking for the perfect escape!

Enjoying a non-typical Mallorcan stay

  • 5 of 5

A modern house with a view, this is in a nutshell the essence of this beautiful place. Especially the view in the morning from one of the bedrooms is enchanting. One notices how careful this house has been designed. Besides this, we found the kitchen equipment very complete. Lots of space around the house, and very quiet. In the morning we enjoyed the sunshine on the smaller terrace, in the evening we had dinner on the big porch. Very, very nice!

Our host gave us all the information we wanted, we had some nice walks in the surroundings, and by car you can reach all the interesting places of Mallorca within reasonable time.

Host Tim, thanks very much for this most pleasant stay (we were here end of October 2014).

Unique house and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful and special holiday week in this modern, newly built house with our two children, 9 and 13 years old. They shared a room and had a separate bathroom. The house is well furnitured with an obvious sense for details and a good taste. The kitchen was well equipped so we could do the cooking every night without trouble and eat outside at the terrace with a stunning view over the olive and fig trees up to the mountains. Even from the adults' large bedroom window you could view the starry sky over the mountains while lying in bed.

The owners were very friendly and gave us lots of good advice. From this place, we made daily trips with our rented car all over the isle. There is only nature around the house, olive and fig trees and a vineyard - very relaxing. This place gives you a good feeling of the original Mallorca and is certainly not for the mainstream tourist. All in all, a highly enjoyable stay and we would like to return at any rate.

PS:The next supermarket is not far.

PPS: The figs from the trees next to the terrace taste lovely. No need to buy any.

We are absolutely enthusiastic about this house!!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to stay in this very beautiful house for a (too short) week. Everything is perfectly arranged, nothing is missing and Marisa and Tim were very kind and helpful for whatever we needed or asked.

The location is very good for sightseeing in Palma or other towns. Different beaches are in a good distance. The landscape is amazing.

The best time (or one of them ;)) was, to sit on the terrace in the early morning, having a cup of coffee and spotting the sunrise.

Thank you Marisa and Tim for everything - we will be back soon!

Best regards Burkhard

Great holiday in a superb location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 14 days in this beautiful finca. The listed description was accurate and described exactly, what you can expect. The house is very clean an the owners Marisa and Tim very friendly. We can highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quite and relaxing holiday. Inca is about 5 minutes away by car. You can find several possibilities for shopping and restaurants there. Campanet and Moscari are also near to the finca and nice villages where you can also find places to eat or drink a coffe together with the locals. The owners can give you special tips for nice locations on Mallorca, too. You will find a holiday there off the mass tourism. The pool is about 2 minutes to walk away and it is very beautiful.

We will definetly come back to this place.

Fantastisches Ferienhaus in traumhafter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist auf höchstem Stand eingerichtet, sehr sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichet. Von der Waschmaschine bis zum schnellen Internetzugang ist alles vorhanden.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Einen besseren Ort zum Erholen kann man auf der ganzen Insel nicht finden. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Vielen Dank für den wunderbaren Urlaub. Wir werden sicher wieder kommen.
