Ideally located for walking holidays or just relaxing in the summer sun, imbibing the rural air of a typical Mallorquin village with a difference. This snug, tucked away semi-detached cottage (140 m²) with almost a hundred years of history, has one double and one twin bedroom, a large bathroom with bath and shower. The separate dining room exudes character as does the open plan kitchen/living room. Ideal both for summer, thanks to the swimming pool and large terrace with beautiful views of the green mountain slopes across the valley, and for winter, with radiators in every room and an efficient wood burning stove in the living room. The air conditioning helps to keep the cottage cool in summer while the heat pumps warm it up quickly in the winter.
Half built into the mountain side, the large larder/store room also contains the washing machine and a second fridge.
What could be more agreeable than lunch on the terrace in the warm winter sunshine, or an al fresco dinner in the cool of a balmy summer’s evening? Followed by a dip in the pool before a nightcap under the stars?
The house is a five minute walk from the central square of the village, though the walk back uphill may take a little longer!
Alaró itself, with just over 5,000 inhabitants, nestling in the Tramunta foothills, dates back to before the 13th century, and now is a mecca for weekend cyclists and walkers, most of whom stop at one of the pavement cafés for a snack or a drink before continuing on their way. Several top class restaurants surprise visitors with the quality of their menus, while the Saturday morning market is a must for locals and visitors alike. Choose between the craftwork on display, selecting some of the freshest fruit or vegetables on the island or enjoying the organ music concerts in the parish church every week.
The village also boasts two well stocked supermarkets and a variety of other shops, including newsagents selling the international press, and baker’s shops offering the full range of Mallorquin breads, pastries and cakes. A couple of art galleries and a small municipal theatre give the village a faintly cosmopolitan air, combined with its strong local tradition and culture.
Alaró Castle perched up on its mountain peak is a must for hikers or anyone who likes a view with a difference. You can always stop at the Es Verger restaurant on the way down for sustenance after the climb!
A bus runs a shuttle service from the centre of the village to the nearest train station in Consell, on the main line from Palma to Inca/Manacor.
For your comfort this cottage has full electric central heating for winter time, a wood burning stove and the heat pumps of the air conditioning system. The air conditioning makes even the most torrid of summer nights bearable.
