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.

Public transport is not very good so a car is essential.
