Private villa that Sleeps 8 with 4 bedrooms 3km from the beach
Villa Al Azhar is beautifully secluded amongst orchards with immaculately kept gardens and extensive furnished terraces. Internally, quality furnishings are enhanced by traditional and elegant décor. Up various front door steps as you enter the villa you are welcomed by Muriel paintings, handiwork of the original owner, which adorn the expansive entrance hall and many character features have been carefully preserved. The accommodation is spacious, most attractive and very well suited to families or larger groups, boasting a private and separate 4th bedroom located on ground level, with full bathroom. All in all, the house spreads stylishly and with many singular touches over three floors, the wealth of external patios providing families or sharing parties with an opportunity for individual peace and quiet if required.
Villa Al Azhar is in a great location, just on the outskirts of Puerto Pollensa ( 1.5 km ) which is one of the quintessential Majorcan towns on the island. There is a public footpath and bicycle path on the opposite side of the main road which leads you directly down to town.
Reached by a country lane just off the Puerto Pollensa - Pollensa main road, you enter the villa, by the electric gates, and up the winding shared driveway to be welcomed by the traditional stone arches covered with beautiful bougainvillea. The villa is surrounded by various indigenous plants, shrubs and local flowerage with a small circular island, at the front, full of various types of palms.
Outside amidst the lovely, immaculately kept gardens there is an ample size private swimming pool, with ladder steps, and extensive sun terraces with comfortable sofas and chairs for complete relaxation for all the family.

About the Owner
Activity and Interests
Originally a fishing village, the enchanting resort of Puerto Pollensa has everything - wonderful scenery, beautiful sandy beaches, fantastic cuisine and a laid-back friendly atmosphere. The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is set against the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range. No wonder it remains a favourite with families and couples who return time and time again. The resort of Puerto Pollensa is arguably Mallorca`s finest.
Despite its success, Puerto Pollensa has managed to retain both its charm and a somewhat understated character as well as it`s rather exclusive feel.
Steeped in history, the charming old town of Pollensa, approx. 3 miles inland from the coast, is arguably the most attractive town on the island. The regions cuisine is also regarded as one of the finest in Mallorca. Pollensa boasts an excellent array of superb restaurants, cafe`s, bars and shops, which can be found in and around the main square, The placa Major, a truly magnificent place to sit and watch the World go by. The Market in Pollensa, which takes place every Sunday, dominates the main square, spilling out in to all the side street`s is an absolute must.
