Cottage at the Mediterranean countryside is the best combination of the best that Mallorca could offer, countryside lifestyle, close to the Tramuntana mountains (UNESCO Humanity patrimony), close to the best (in our opinion) beaches and calas of the island, this place mantains the spirit of the old times, the time seems change the pace, the contact with nature makes you remember that life is full of beauty, when you visit the bars of the villages around you will mainly see local people, giving you the experience that you are traveling, that you can learn from other culture, that kind of true experience is what you can find in the suburbs of the cottage.
The house is an old cottage with walls made with stones, that we refurbished with all the facilities, you will have a double bed, a full bathroom, a well equipped American kitchen (with vitroceramic, fridge , microwave, etc), a dinning – living room (with a sofa bed), a huge porch with a dining area, a chill out zone (ideal to contemplate the breath taken sunsets in the mountains), at night you could enjoy the bonfire area (in Spanish called “Fogon”, is a kind of hole in the floor where you can set a fire, in order to keep you warm and also to cook an incredible barbecue) in this place you will be hypnotized with the incredible and starry nights of the Mediterranean Sea.
You will have total privacy because the cottage is more or less 200 mt far from our house, but fell free if you want to share our swimming pool the day that you do not want to go the beach.
All of the details about guests access are compiled in the House Rules, we recomend to our guests or people who is interested in renting the cottage to read this document before to book the cottage.
Our policy with guests is to respect their privacy, but in the other hand we are always open of their needs, queries, etc, We are completely sure that our guests don´t want to be bothered the time that they are staying here, for that reason we have covered most of the situations in our House Rules document, in order to let them know in advance to the guests or people who is interested in renting the cottage what they will find in the cottage and how are the things organized here. Considering more than 50 positives reviews, we truly believe that is the best way to guarantee a good staying to our guest.
You will find the best views to the Tramuntana Hills, in this unique place you will only heard and sense the sheep´s bells, the sound of the birds and the tender love of our domestic animals (dogs, cat, and chickens), but if you are not animal lover, do not worry because you only see them walking around the place but they never will get inside your cottage. The cottage is perfect for two adults and one baby.
The location is ideal:
-In a few minutes (from 2 to 10) you can find the most beautiful towns of the Mallorcan countryside in the foot of the mountains, like Mancor de la Vall, Selva, Biniamar, Moscari, Campanet, Caimari, etc. To the same distance you can access to the incredible mountains tracks.
-15 minutes from the Sea, when you come, we will give you the key to find the hidden treasures of the Mallorcan coast.
-30 minutes from Palma and the Airport, if you miss the dynamic of one cosmopolitan city like Palma de Mallorca.
Public transport does not work efficiently in rural areas of Mallorca, for that reason my recomendation is to rent a car, in that case you in a few minutes you could reach the most interesting points of the island.
When you book the cottage, in the booking confirmation information you will have all the information how to find the cottage.
Pasamos en la casa 3 días estas navidades. El sitio es perfecto para desconectar y se encuentra en una de las zonas más bonitas de la isla. Los anfitriones, un diez.
We enjoyed our stay on the cottage from Javier and Silvia. It is a perfect place to start visiting Tramuntana Mountains. The house has everything you need and is located in a beautiful natural sourrounding. We apprecitated the kind hospitality. We can highly recommend Javier and Silvia's place for a relaxed stay on Mallorca.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Besides of the nice interior the surroundings of the cottage with its huge garden, the fireplace, the chickens and the sheep are a big plus and really entertaining while chilling on the veranda. There are also a plenty of touristical hotspots in the area. Javier is a helpful and attentive host. Thank you!!!
We spent four nights in Javiers cottage. It is a very peaceful place near the little town of Campanet. The cottage is cosy and authentic and the outside space is beautiful. Javier took great care of us and was always around when we needed him. He gave us a lot of helpful inputs regarding the perfect spots on the island.
Thanks a lot!
We enjoyed our time at the cottage. It is a super location in the country side and centre of Mallorca. We (2 adults, 1 one year old) had a wonderfull time. We spend most of our time outside but the cottage is large and comfortable. Javier and Sylvia are very pleasant hosts. Although the puppy's of Javier and Sylvia are only 4 months old we could leave our daughter outside without worries. We recommend this location for everybody who wants to discover Mallorca and stay in a peacefull surrounding.
Our holiday, the feeling we had during our stay in the cottage of Javier and his wife Sylvia, actually is undescribable, so everything you read now are just ‘plain old words’. Javier and Sylvia are both very good people and very easy-going. We arrived late and Javier made sure we could still have something to eat, even after the restaurant closed. When you need tips going to places on the island, I have one for you: talk to Sylvia and Javier first. They know the best spots!
The cottage is beautiful, because it’s one big relaxing place. We loved the outside area where you could relax. The only thing you will hear are the bells of the sheep.
Sylvia, Javier, Chula and Pisha, thanks for a great island experience. We will meet again!
We had a fantastic time at this lovely cottage in the beautiful northwest of the island! The hosts Javier & Silvia are super; lovely, attentive, informative about the local hot spots and extremely helpful in any and all matters! We felt very welcome and well looked after yet completely private and relaxed.
We had a fantastic week staying at Javier and Silvia's cottage. It was very peaceful and we had the relaxing time we were looking for.
Javier's recommendations for restaurants, quiet beaches (even in August!) and other places to visit were perfect and super helpful. all the facilities in the cottage were good, we had everything we needed to cook with etc as well.
the dogs were really friendly too! I hope we can visit again.
We had a lovely ten days in Javier's cottage, it's definitely a wonderful place to stay and Javier's the best host one can wish for! We immediately felt at home as all is cosy and exactly as in the pictures. And Javier had excellent tips where to go, what to see, where to eat, where to swim and we could ask him about everything.
So all in all the perfect spot to spend your holidays and to explore the wonderful island, a place we can highly recommend to anyone. A big thanks to Javier, we'd love to come back soon! Iris & Frank
Many thanks to Javier and Silvia! The cottage and surroundings was everything we were looking for: remote, peaceful and beautiful. The pictures you find here on airbnb reflect the piece of land perfectly. Javier gave us many useful tips away from industrial tourism: we discovered unique beaches and great restaurants. If you prefer cooking at home the kitchen is well equipped and the outdoor fireplace is a fantastic spot for BBQ. Thanks again, Gordon and Anup (August 2013)
