Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

Enter the villa into the large hallway, which is light and airy with cooling tiled floors, and leads off to the living areas to the left and bedrooms to the right.

Immediately to the left, a corridor leads to the kitchen and a loo; the fully-kitted out kitchen is designed in a traditional farmhouse style with a dishwasher.

There is a storage room and a utility room with a washing machine in the kitchen, as well as a breakfast table, which is perfect for snack times.

Wander through to the large dining room, which has a wooden dining table, leading through an open archway to a living room, with comfortable leather sofas, a television, DVD player and satellite television channels.

The living room takes advantage of the warming sunlight with large windows and two sets of double patio doors looking out into the garden.

From the dining room, you can also step outside onto a covered pergola, which has a dining table, or back through to the hallway, leading onto the bedrooms.

To the right, a large twin bedroom has views onto the garden and plenty of room for a cot; there is a large en suite bathroom with a corner bath and separate shower cubicle.

At the end of the hallway, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom share a family bathroom and both have doors out onto the outdoor terrace.

All of the bedrooms have shuttered windows and air conditioning to make the rooms dark and cool enough for a blissful night’s sleep.

From the hallway, gated stairs lead up to an enclosed roof terrace, where you can soak up the sun or enjoy an evening drink when the little ones are tucked up in bed.

Parent Points:

  • The house is all on one level excepting a staircase leading up to the roof terrace from where the stunning views can be best appreciated; these stairs are gated and if children are permitted onto the roof terrace then close supervision will be required
  • A lovely terrace area can be accessed from doors leading out from two of the bedrooms; the terrace is not enclosed and leads to the driveway so it is recommended that if children use these bedrooms, the doors are kept closed and locked

Outdoors

As you approach the villa along a beautiful private winding driveway and up to the hilltop location, you get a true sense of the panoramic mountain and sea views, as well as the peaceful privacy.

The large outdoor area makes the most of the sunshine and beautiful views with large grassy areas to play on and palm trees to catch some shade under.

The covered outdoor terrace is enclosed so you can play and relax freely, without the little ones gaining unsupervised access to the garden; outside the dining room, there is a covered pergola, where you can dine alfresco, admiring the views.

A pathway leads down to the enclosed pool area, which has a huge pool that little ones will love; there are wide roman steps leading into the water, where babies and toddlers can splash and play to their heart’s content.

At the end of the pool, there is an outdoor terrace, which has a covered seating area and a partially covered built-in barbecue.

Parent Points:

  • There are a number of spiky plants in the garden and pool area – care will be needed to point out these potential hazards to younger children who may not be familiar with them
  • This property is set on a hill top and therefore has the most wonderful views; the owner has created a secure garden adjacent to the house but beyond this there are steep slopes so children will need to be supervised when outside
  • The pool area is set on a lower terrace, accessed by gated steps; the steps are not gated at the bottom

What's Around?

Portocolom

The lovely seaside Portocolom is just a 15 minute drive from the villa, where the beautiful clean beach of Cala Marcal is; the soft sand gently slopes into the turquoise water so the beach is perfect for children.

If you need drinks and snacks at the beach, there is a beach bar and a Spar shop, with plenty of restaurants, bars and shops, too.

For lunches, take a trip to Creperia Gelateria Es Cucurutxo, which serves paninis, sandwiches and both sweet and savoury crepes, with half portions, too, which is great for the little ones.  They serve delicious wine and hot chocolate and, of course, ice cream.

If you’re after an early dinner for the little ones, El Barco opens earlier than the other restaurants in the area and serves delicious tapas and burgers, with a separate kids’ menu too.

Cala d’Or

The beautiful small beaches of Cala d’Or are a 20 minute drive away, where there is the Blue Flag beach of Cala Gran, which has fine white sand and clear blue seas.

Cala Gran also has a children’s play area, with a lifeguard, sun beds and parasols available, and some bars and restaurants to choose between along the beach.

The sheltered cove beach of Cala d’Or (or Es Forti, as it’s also known) has lovely calm waters, which is ideal for little ones, as well as loos, showers, and a bar at the back of the bay.

Take a trip to Cala D’ice, which serves deliciously creamy homemade ice creams in a range of flavours from classic fruits to chocolate bar inspired flavours; you can also get one as a milkshake too, and coffee lovers should try their iced coffee.

In the evenings, head to The Little Tavern for deliciously authentic tapas and great cocktails, or Molly’s Irish Bistro for the home comforts of an indulgent roast dinner.

El Castillo del Bosque

It is a 10 minute drive from the villa to the restaurant El Castillo del Bosque, which has free off-street parking; the restaurant is not a tourist restaurant, but serves Mediterranean, Spanish and seafood dishes.

It offers a wide range of choice with some very local choices, try the authentic paella, and the house mojito, too.

The restaurant has free Wi-Fi and there are highchairs available, as well.

Sa Farinera

It is also a 10 minute drive to Sa Farinera restaurant, which is a grill-style barbecue restaurant, serving fresh food cooked on an outdoor wood fire.

Try their local appetisers, too, which are delicious.

Mondrago Natural Park

It just under half an hour's drive to Mondrago, a stunning nature reserve and beauty spot on the other side of Cala D'Or.  There is an information centre open between 9am and 4pm, where you can pick up leaflets in English.

The park has a variety of walks, from short to long, so you can find one to suit your family.  Along the way, you can spot birds, and look over the picturesque bay, and you'll find yourself in a picnic area, where there are loads of geckos.

You can also stop off at Mondrago Beach, which is unspoilt with turquoise waters.  It is surrounded by pine forests and rocky outcrops and the shallow water makes it ideal for little ones; the white sand is silky soft, perfect for sandcastle building.

There is a lifeguard on duty and there is parking, which does cost around €5 but the money does go to a good cause.
