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.

Wonderful stay in Selva, Mallorca

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a clean and beautiful house, and immediately loved it. Nice pool area, very private and surrounded by a garden with lemon trees. The small village Selva a short walk away, and both bakery and grocery store close by. Thank you to house owner Monserrat for your nice and service minded approach.

Really nice place

  • 4 of 5

If you want somewhere relaxing, well equipped in a lovely location, then read on. It is set on the edge of a small town and has great views from the terrace over the friendly owner's plantacion to the hills - he allowed us to take our pick from lemons, pears, figs, plums and tomatoes. It is very close to a baker's shop a couple of bars and small food stores; in the centre of town there are banks and restaurants and a pharmacy within a short walk. In short, you can base yourself here and do not need to travel unless you want to buy something specialist or a beach. The place was clean and well maintained. Our boys liked the pool, ping-pong and basketball. There were bikes, too! If you are an avid TV viewer and want English programmes then you will not get them here - there is satellite TV but the channels are primarily Spanish and German. It was easy to reach from the airport and getting to nice beaches and larger shops was also easy. We had a lovely holiday - sitting under the canvas awning or the terrace when it became too hot is something I remember fondly. Thank you Monse!
