Beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Monserrate's house we knew we had lucked out. It is much better than the photos make out. The house was really clean, but it is the setting that makes it so special. Monserrate and his family welcomed us when we arrived and were really helpful and friendly throughout our stay. We went with our 2 kids - 6 and 9, as well as gran (80!). The layout of the house really suited us. Being walking distance of a cafe/bar and shops was a bonus. As we live and work in London this was just what we were looking for - a peaceful retreat to hang out and chill out. For the price we think it provided everything you need and more. We agree about the double bed upstairs - but got used to it! That is the only thing we would change. We would highly recommend this beautiful house and surroundings.

Beautiful setting, great location for outdoor recreation and private, yet on the edge of the village

  • 5 of 5

The whole holiday was great from start to finish. The house is located on the edge of Selva, with great walking access to the local shops and restaurants. The house itself is as pictured. It has all the necessary kitchen equipment for a holiday house as well as a dishwasher and laundry facilities. We got the AC added but it is not necessary every night, the house is very cool and airy. You will never get tired of the view, and we spent many a night BBQing and just appreciating the silence enjoying a drink. There's plenty of room to entertain or just enjoy with your partner. During the day you are well located for hiking and biking, and its only 30 minutes drive to Palma or likewise the north coast, and you have the pool to come back to! The owners were very respectful of our privacy. We had the house for a month, and they would visit once a week to water the grounds and check the pool. We made use of the cleaner who was very reasonable and changed the linens and cleaned all the communal areas. We would defiantly recommend this property! Thank you.

Lots of space, great pool, peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We paid €1500 for last week and our family of four (2 adults and two teenagers) had a very, very relaxing time.

The villa surrounds are incredibly spacious - separate large table to eat around by the huge BBQ, large pool with large covered area adjacent -essential refuge from the midday sun for our week- plenty of sun-loungers and chairs. Breakfasts were eaten on the covered veranda area in front of the main house with it's great views of the orchard and far away hills.

Car hire is essential I think - It's about 35-40mins drive from the airport - you are handily located for the north eastern towns and beaches. Selva is a residential town -with a few bars and restaurants. We only ate out once there - At 'Forno' pizzas and Estella beer at €2 a large glass hit the spot well. As we were on the outskirts and surrounded 180degrees by farmland we felt very secluded and didn't feel like we were a bother to any of the locals.

Monserrat and his wife were very welcoming and allowed us to host other friends who visited us during our stay. They were easy and available for contact - no doubt helped by our fluent Spanish speaking daughter. We were visited once for pool maintenance, which was totally appropriate. There is plenty of gear there for scooping out 'suicide wasps' and we were shown how to use the automatic pool cleaner which is a doddle. We were encouraged to use 'as much fruit from the orchard' as we wanted -which includes delicious figs, peaches, pears, oranges and lemons.

The rooms were spacious - shame there's only 3 double rooms really for a villa this size. Look out in the showers the water pressure is phenomenal! :-) The kitchen facilities were totally adequate for our needs - we noted the new crockery. There was a half size dish washer - used once. Our daughter made some great 'home-grown' lemonade with the juicer as well! We didn't use the TV facilities at all.

Make no mistake this is a fantastic place to rent and we are already talking about coming back. If we are going to be hyper-critical then -- We didn't like the bedding - as there's a plastic-type under-sheet, which in this heat makes you sweat A LOT(!) - For the price we would have liked some simple things provided e.g. more plastic bin sacks, basic cleaning stuff like dish cloths and seven dish washer tablets (only one supplied)?... Air conditioning is extra at €10/day - even during our week we only used it for one day.

All in all a fantastic find. A Great stay.

Excellent property with a few shortcomings

  • 4 of 5

In many respects, this was the best property we have rented. The house is spacious, clean and well-maintained, stands on a substamtial plot and is decorated and furnished in traditional style. The pool is large with an outdoor shower, sunloungers and parasol and a shady terrace with elegant rattan furniture, all complemented by an abundance of flowering shrubs and palms which are lovingly tended. The view from the house over the pool and orchard towards the Tramuntana mountains is outstanding. The setting is peaceful, private and secure with negligible traffic noise and we enjoyed picking and eating plums, pears and lemons from the huge orchard.

My husband, grandson (13) and I had great fun playing table tennis but we did not use the bikes as my husband deemed them unroadworthy.

We flinched at paying an additional 70 euros for airconditioning for our week's stay but, given the extreme temperatures, it was worth every cent.

The lovely owners met us on arrival and, after explaining what we needed to know, requested feedback, which I have given. We ate out twice but self-catered for the other meals and this is where my difficulties lay. There was insufficient usable crockery (e.g. 6 dinner plates but 1 chipped, 5 mugs but 3 chipped) and I had to be creative in the use of equipment to compensate for the lack of mixing bowls ( e.g. beating eggs in batches in cereal bowls), bread board, oven cloth, etc. These shortcomings were frustrating and the kitchen wasn't always a happy one! We were a group of 3 so a party of 6 guests would have struggled further. Supplementing the crockery stock and providing more non-electrical equipment would make catering less stressful and the whole holiday more enjoyable, This was the first property we have rented that did not have a basic kitchen store cupboard (just salt) or cleaning materials.

This property sits on the edge of Selva, a delightful old, hillside village, so the only way is up - but it is worth the climb for the superb views and to wander through the village's maze of streets and alleyways. The two little supermarkets (open 9.00-1.30 on Sundays) and bakery are a short walk from the property and provide most essentials, which enabled us to top up our main shop at Hipercentro in Inca.

As we did not want to travel far in the heat, we spent a lot of time at the property but can recommend a trip to the caves at Campanet and the little beach of Playa de San Joan. We loved this area of Majorca.

Secluded and functional property with wonderful views and a great pool

  • 4 of 5

Easy to find with Monserrat's directions from Inca to Selva.

The house itself is in a quiet area and in very secluded grounds, the view from ground and upper floors is out over the pool and across open countryside, with the owner's (help yourself!) lemon, pear, olive and fig trees in the foreground.

The pool was fantastic, and the outdoor eating areas very good. There is a nice shady spot to park the car. Other outdoor facilities were the table tennis table, and the basketball hoop, plus there were cycles available to use (not for us in 32 degree heat!). The outdoor area was very clean and tidy.

On the ground floor was the kitchen / dining room on entry. The kitchen area was very limited for workspace, but we managed. Dishwasher was good, fridge/freezer did its' job. The washing machine is in the outhouse and worked well, iron/ironing board all good. Hob and oven were good, and we cooked at home about 65% of the time.

Also on the ground floor was a double bedroom and a nice bathroom. (A note on the beds....in the villa there were two double beds and two single beds. The doubles were small (definitely smaller than king size) and we found them uncomfortable. The singles were fine for comfort. Plenty of towels and toilet rolls on arrival. The towels were not replenished but we just ran them through the washing machine and hung them on the drying rack for an hour.

Upstairs there is a comfortable lounge which had two settees, tv and dvd player. Could only find one english channel on the tv. A number of decent movies on DVDs in the cupboard. Accessing other content was helped by the wireless internet which was very good.

Two bedrooms upstairs and another really nice bathroom.

Selva is a lovely little town, people very friendly. There is a very small supermarket about 4 minutes walk, with a slightly larger one about 7 minutes walk (it's straight uphill, but has a car park!). As you walk to the supermarkets, you'll see the municipal waste bins on your right - you need to take your rubbish here. Inca has Aldi, Lidl and Eroski supermarkets - ten minute drive away, very easy to find. No supermakets anywhere on Sundays! The Thursday market in Inca is excellent.

Monserrat was very welcoming and helpful. During our time there he attended the property twice to maintain the pool and the orchard and gardens, and was very unobtrusive.

Air conditioning is at a 7 euro per day supplement :-(

All in all, a really nice place and yes, we would go again.

Just what was needed

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely villa on the edge of one of our favourite villages in Mallorca. A traditional finca with a super pool area and lush gardens. Everything one would need (shops, bars, restaurants and of course a bakery) in easy walking distance. It was very hot during our stay so the optional air con was a real boon. Largely a peaceful location although there was some noise from a nearby property being renovated during the day. But nothing too onerous. Monserrat the owner was welcoming and helpful and we will certainly book again when we next return to the area.
