Casita with 2 terraces on south and west side of the house, 2 bedrooms, large kitchen and privately situated on a unique former coal mine complex. We have still some weeks available for this Summer. Book now for the special last minute offer.

The Space

The casita is part of the old coal mine estate of 3 hectares. From the south terrace you have a spectacular view over the valley and the 3rd city of Mallorca, Inca. On the west terrace you have more shade in the lush garden. The casita is less than 1 km from the small town Selva, which is a quiet town with a huge church near the central plaza in the town.

Read the recommendations / reviews about this accommodation. Sofar all guests assumed that it was all much smaller, also the estate, which is not (30,000 m2).

The house is part of the old coal mine estate which closed in 1986. There are several houses and other buildings which used to be part of the mine - and on top of the main old mine shaft going down there is an old rusty mine tower of 14 meters high which some guests could not resist to climb. The 3,000 meters of mine galleries and mine shafts are not accessible anymore as these are now full of water, which is a valueble commodity on the island in Summertime. It enables us to keep our estate green and lushy.

It's a unique place and if you are looking for something special you may like it very much.

Although there are more houses (4 in total) the house is quite privately situated on the estate.

Guests will receive a remote control key to open the front gate and you can park your car on the premise.

The estate is 1 kilometer from the center of the town Selva which has about 1000 inhabitants. On the central small square in Selva you will find a number of restaurants, there is a small bakery and a small grocery and a huge church is towering above Selva. A larger supermarket (name = A-Prop) is about 4 minutes walk from this square.

Selva is 2 kilometers from the 3rd largest city of Mallorca: Inca. Being in Selva near Inca means that you are almost on the center of the island, close to the mountain ridge 'La Tramuntana' (highest summit about 1450 meters), 30 minutes from Palma using the main highway.

As this is a special accommodation you may have some questions. Don't hesitate to ask us any questions and we can send you more photos if you like.

Guest Access

Guests will get a remote control key to open the front gate and are allowed access to the whole estate and we always offer the 'grand tour' which shows a bit of the old coal mine, typical trees on Mallorca and what we intend to do with it.

Interaction with Guests

We highly respect the privacy of our guests but we can always be contacted if needed for practical issues regarding the house or hints and tips for Mallorca.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is not a typical tourist area. You live amongst locals and get a real taste of how the Mallorquin live here. It's close to the mountain ridge Tramuntana, close to the 3rd city of the island (Inca) and close to the main highway which runs across the island.

Getting around

You do need a car, although we did accommodate some guests who relied on public transport and this went amazingly well if you know the time schedules. Busses and trains go from Inca, which is about 2 km from Selva.

Other Things to Note

The estate is kind of unique and most guests leave with tears in their eyes. Also, on the photos is looks quite flat as it's two dimensional, but reality proves to be different. The elevation difference on the estate from the main gate to the bottom gate is about 30 meter and you can get lost in the dense 'jungle' (did you know that Selva means jungle in Spanish?)

  • Wir waren Ende Mai eine Woche bei Mark und Ans zu Gast, ein ausgesprochen angenehmer Aufenthalt. Die beiden sind sehr freundliche, aber nicht aufdringliche Gastgeber.
    Das von uns gemietete Haus liegt am Rande eines riesigen Grundstücks, das zu einer ehemaligen Kohlemine gehört. Mark und Ans haben hier einige interessante Bau- und Gartenprojekte am Start.
    Das Haus selber ist mit zwei Badezimmern und zwei Terrassen ideal für vier Personen geeignet, geräumig, und charmant eingerichtet. Sehr nett, dass die beiden schon ein paar Grundlebensmittel in den Kühlschrank gestellt hatten. Gute Duschen, genug Warmwasser für alle, und sehr ruhig.
    Das nahe gelegene mittelalterliche Örtchen Selva ist auch klasse mit seinen superengen Sträßchen, fernab des großen Tourismus. Allerdings ist in dieser Ecke Mallorcas ein Auto angesagt.

    English: We had a pleasant week at Mark & Ans guest house, remotely situated on an unusual ground, a former coal mine. With two bathrooms and two terraces, it's ideal for four people, quiet and charming. Mark & Ans are friendly, easygoing hosts (as is their dog, btw.).
    The nearby town of selva is also very nice, and shows "the other side" of mallorca. Car recommended.

  • A great place where we only stayed one night, but we really loved it. Mark and Ans were very quick to answer mails. God cooking fascilities. Two lovely terraces.
    Much better "in real life" than on the pictures. Seems that Mark & Ans had thought about everything. Strong WiFi signal. We would love to come back - well recommended.

  • Hallo,

    We hebben genoten van het mooie en ruime huis. De terassen zijn heerlijk om te vertoeven. Het was erg rustig en de omgeving is prachtig. We zaten dichtbij de bergen.
    Mark en Ans zijn perfecte gastheer en vrouw.
    Bedankt voor een fijne vakantie.

  • All perfect.

  • Mark and Ans have been great hosts.
    The house was spotless clean, the kitchen had everything you would need from sharp knives (bonus! very rare in vacation apartments/houses) to basic stocks like sugar, flour, spices, oil, etc. We even got some breakfast basics incl. fresh eggs, tomatoes and a home baked bread - how lovely!
    The house is in a great location to explore the island into all directions, so was the perfect base for us for a cruising day, some Palma walk&shop and a long hike in the mountains.
    Sitting on the terrace (one of 2!) in the evening in the dark with a glass of wine we enjoyed the moonlit view and the nature noises.
    we will certainly come back and can highly recommend this place for a Mallorca stay.

  • - Wir waren 2 Wochen Ende September da -
    Ans und Mark haben uns einen tollen Empfang bereitet, so dass man sich augenblicklich wie zu Hause fühlte (frische Eier von den eigenen Hühnern, einen Kühlschrank bereits mit Notwendigem gefüllt, ...). Da wir an einem Sonntag angekommen sind war der Effekt gleich doppelt so toll; danke auch noch einmal dafür. Das Haus war mit allem Notwendigem ausgestattet, sehr sauber und unheimlich gemütlich. Wir haben uns sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. Von der Terrasse aus hatte man einen tollen Blick auf den Garten und in die Weite hinaus. Das Grundstück liegt sehr ruhig, der nächste Ort ist dennoch fußläufig schnell erreichbar. Selva ist ein hübsches kleines Dorf.
    Zum Erholen und Entspannen ist das der richtige Ort. Ans und Mark sind tolle Gastgeber (nicht zu vergessen natürlich auch Borre, der Hund) und wir werden es auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.
    Freut Euch auf Euren Aufenthalt

  • Mark and Ans are very friendly and helpful hosts. Their cottage is wonderful! Peace and quiet, nestled among nature. We just loved it!!! Mark and Ans are very hospitable. The place was fully equipped with all necessary things such as towels, bed sheets blankets. In addition, the hosts made ​​sure that the fridge was full! The kitchen has all the necessary spices, pots, microwave. All equipment and of course the owners made us feel so at home in their house and we are looking forward to visiting this place again! I highly recommend this place for everyone!

  • Wonderful location to get a little rest! Very interesting property with a wild garden and a lot to explore. The casita had everything we needed. From this location you can discover the island in all directions.

    We arrived kind of late on a Saturday night when the shops were closed – to quote the host: "I hate when I go somewhere and the fridge is empty, so I put something in it" – very nice. Thank you for everything! Ans & Marc are perfect down-to-earth hosts :)

    I highly recommend it to everyone, who wants to relax apart from Mallorca's tourists hot spots.

  • We (me + friend) had a fantastic night at Mark & Ans place! Fantastic garden, and the work they are doing on it is impressing (and interesting!). Amazing garden, full of smells and colors - really too bad we couldn't stay long enough to explore more of it!

    The house was not really what we expected.... it was MUCH BETTER! Perfectly comfortable, clean and very cosy... all in one! Definitely all we needed and exceeded all expectations!

    Mark & Ans are VERY hospitable and offered to pick us up, drop us, but we decided to walk to their place, which was not that hard to find. The village Selva is really close by and really cute for a late morning coffee before hitting the road again :)

    I highly recommend staying with them, and the only mistake you could make (and regret later) is to do like us.... so stay longer than one night - there is much to see!

  • 6 dejlige påske-dage i et enkelt, men stort hus. I fantastiske omgivelser. Det tog os som regel helt til middag at drikke kaffe, spise morgenmad og gøre os klar til kørerture på øen. Da man ikke kan skynde sig i så rolige (website hidden) var 2 voksene og 2 børn, der nød det på hver vores måde. De voksne nød stilheden, ungerne nød at gå på opdagelse på den 3 hektar store vilde (website hidden) fik besøg af de fritgående hønsene, der ledte efter mad. Eller den meget søde hund der bor der, men efter strenge formaninger ikke må fodres men gerne klappes eller kæles med. der var 2 store terrasser med læ og masser af sol. så alle måltider blev indtaget i det (website hidden) kommer igen og igen.
