About This Listing
Nestling in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains you will find Selva,a delightful village almost undiscovered by the majority of visitors to the island.
The accommodation is a self contained stone built house in the grounds of our own home just a few minutes drive from the village where you can find bars, restaurants and supermarkets plus an art gallery. Our own restaurant, Es Portal de Tramuntana, is in the main square of Selva and we offer a different set menu each day at a cost of 19,50€.
The village also has a large swimming pool with bar/restaurant and this is open from 15th June until 15th September. A lifeguard is also in attendance.
Selva is a pretty good base from which to explore the whole island. Heading north west into the mountains heading to Lluc and beyond, there are fantastic walks and drives! The scenery on the drive from Lluc down the west coastpassing through Soller and Deya is breathtaking.
A 30 minute drive approximately to the south of Selva you will find the capital city Palma de Mallorca which comes as a surprise to many people - it is stylish, sophisticated, intimate, yet bursting with life, located on the southern shores of Mallorca, the city looks out over the sparkling blue seas of the Mediterranean. Half of Mallorca's population live here, enjoying some of the island's best restaurants, shops and nightlife as well as a thriving arts scene and a lively cafe society.
Travel 15 kilometres north from Selva and you will arrive at Pollenca and Alcudia with their amazing beaches and waterfront dining plus plenty of watersports for the more active.
The cottage is totally independent has its own porch and the surrounding patios are for the full use of our guests.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the main house but during the day we are often away from the property.
The cottage is surrounded by open countryside with views towards the mountains of the Tramuntana. Very peaceful but just a few minutes drive to the village.
Public transport is not very good so a car is essential.
We do not allow pets although we do have our own cats.
Smoking is not permitted in the cottage although we do not mind in the outside areas.
Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage Francesca und Len. Wir können die Unterkunft bedenkenlos weiter empfehlen. Das Haus war wie beschrieben. Es war alles sauber. Das Haus liegt etwas außerhalb
von Selva was für uns aber perfekt war. Auto ist Pflicht. Anbindung zur Autobahn und nach Inca in ca. 5 Minuten. Das Restaurant gegenüber ist auch sehr zu empfehlen. Zum Joggen hat man reichlich Möglichkeiten. Einzige nicht ganz so tolle Erfahrungen haben wir mit Armeisenstraßen gemacht, wobei es dieses Jahr extrem schlimm seien soll. Aber das ist die Natur. Francesca und Len waren immer erreichbar und haben bei Fragen weitergeholfen. Es ist einfach schön wenn man aufwacht, nach draußen geht und die Sonne scheint, man sieht die Berge und man ist einfach alleine. Sehr sehr erholsam. Vielen Dank nochmal und alles Gute. Antonia und Marc
Francesca and Len were amazing and discreet hosts. The description how to pick up the key was perfect. I was many times on Mallorca Island, staying here and there and I enjoyed every single visit on this fantastic Island, but Selva and its neighborhood really touched me by heart. This beautiful valley is not yet discovered by many tourists. People are very authentic - the traditional Mallorquin Hospitality was like in a movie, nevertheless if we were in a supermarket (5 minutes drive) or in a restaurant (Francesca and Len run also one in the main square of the village - fabolous food and still very reliable) or somewhere in the villages around. The House is in a lovely quiet valley - really private - with unique mountain view, you really can "hear the Silence" - the best place to recharge human batteries. And no matter where you want to go - you can easily reach each point of the Island in a short time due to the perfect roads, but this place is so magic that we stayed half of the week "at home". Thank you Francesca and Len for your hospitality and nice chats when you had some spare time. We do hope that we may come again!
We had a wonderful time at Francesca’s and Lens’ place. The house is beautiful, surrounded with a beautiful landscape well equipped with everything you need. Not a mass touristic area, but still a good spot to see the island. Their restaurant in the cosy village was also definitely worth it!! We would really recommend this to our friends, family and other tourists.
Francesca and Len were amazing hosts! They both did everything to make us feel at home.
Their guest house had all we needed during our stay. The location in the middle of fields and flowers was just lovely and perfect for chill-out!
We would definitely stay there again and recommend Francesca's & Len's place.
We had such a great time in the beautiful finca from Francesca and Len. It is a place to relax while you enjoy the idyllic landscape and hear the bells of the sheep. Form the first moment it feels like home. We're looking forward to our next stay and will be very happy to see Francesca and Len again.
