Overview

About the property

Newly constructed Studio with beautiful views of Tramuntana mountain range

Our detached Studio property is located within the beautiful village of Puigpunyent which is only 15 minutes from Palma and within a World Heritage Site. It is surrounded by the foothills of the Tramuntana mountain range with fantastic views of the valley and mountains. It is an ideal location for keen walkers, cyclists, golfers and those wishing for a tranquil break in a beautiful setting, without being in a tourist area.

The property sleeps 2 (double bed in Studio).

There is a shower room with WC and washbasin, accessed from the Studio. There is a small upper terrace off the Studio shower room where there is a washing machine and drying lines. In the dining area there is an extendable table which can seat up to six people. From the lounge area with digital TV and music player with iPod dock, patio doors lead out to a paved and gravelled garden. Here you relax over a barbecue with a glass of wine and enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of the stunning scenery, watch the eagles soaring overhead, disturbed occasionally by the chime of a goat’s bell. Should you feel a bit more energetic, we also have an outdoor table tennis table!

We have a wood pellet heater which is a great centrepiece, easy to operate and allows the property to be used throughout the year. A bag of pellets is provided for each guest who stays in the Studio during the heating season. Refills are easily available.

Immerse yourself in the village life, take a walk to the bread shop for freshly baked ensaimadas and croissants for breakfast, buy fresh meat, fruit and vegetables from the village store and the Sunday market, or fill a bottle with local wine directly from the vat in the tobacconist; very reasonable both on the pocket and the palette! There are two banks, a medical centre & pharmacy, two good restaurants and of course, the obligatory café bars.

It’s a short walk to the public tennis courts, bar, table tennis and outdoor swimming pool which is open from June to September, for a minimal entrance fee. We have tennis and table tennis equipment in the studio for your use, as well as our own table tennis table which you can use on the terrace.

Puigpunyent is also an ideal location for keen walkers with several mountain routes just a few minutes from the studio. Cycling is also very popular in the mountains; you can hire bikes in Palma.

Nearby (within easy walking distance) is La Reserva private nature reserve with a 3.7km nature trail where you can see indigenous plants and animals from brown bears to turtles. There are hawk displays through the day and, if you feel brave enough, you can ride the zip wire across the valley above the picnic area.

If you prefer sand, sea and sun, there are many beautiful beaches at this end of the island; the nearest one is just a 15 minute drive. Drive a bit further and you can get a boat to the island of Sa Dragonera nature reserve or visit the fishing village of Andratx which has a quayside lined with the most amazing seafood restaurants.

Should you fancy a game of golf, there are a number of good courses on the island. The 63 hole Son Vida complex is no more than 15 minutes away and is the leading golf resort in the Mediterranean.

By day or by night, Palma is well worth going to. Visit the awe inspiring cathedral, explore the Arabic quarter, have a browse around the famous indoor fish market, clothing & shoe shops or sit outside one of the restaurants in the Plaza Mayor with a coffee and watch the world go by. Down by the harbour, there are many good restaurants

About Ian Carpenter

I am a Consultant Engineer and my wife, Tessa, a personal fitness trainer. We live in North Wales. Over the last 10 years, we have visited Mallorca every year for our holidays with our two children. They are now grown up and so we spend less time there, hence we have decided to share the studio with you so that you too can enjoy the Puigpunyent experience! We own the terraced house next to the studio - in fact the studio was built on part of the garden of the terraced house. We rent the terraced house to a Spanish lady which is ideal as she can keep an eye on the studio and help out when needed

Ian Carpenter purchased this house in 2007

Very clean self-contained and modern

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location. Easy parking and easy to find. The instructions for the properties equipment are fully provided. This is a large studio perfect for 2.

This is a perfect location for a cycling base with many local climbs on your doorstep. Sa Calobra is approximately a 100 mile there and back, Soller is only a 50 mile loop. Both well worth a go.

Very good

Wonderful position in a very pleasant Mallorcan village with great views and excellent walking from the door. Rather chilly when we arrived in cooler weather . Another heater would be good. Spacious , clean apartment . Great holiday, thanks!

If you want to immerse yourself in the Spanish lifestyle,in beautiful surroundings,this is the place

  • 5 of 5

If you want to experience the real Mallorca and want a place with character,then this is the place for you.

Puigpunyent is a traditional town away from the tourists,which means you can wander down to the local cafes/bars/supermarket and embarrass yourself trying to speak to the locals.

Whilst the town isnt as pretty as others (e.g fornalutx),its still gorgeous and your view of it is certainly helped by the property,as the views over the town from the patio area are fantastic.

It's also an amazing location for day trips to deia,soller and Palma etc

Highly recommend this place and the owner bent over backwards to ensure we had everything we needed

Owner's Response: Thank you Timothy - you've summarised the place perfectly! You're welcome back any time. I've just spent a week here travelling to a different market everyday - thoroughly recommend Arta on a Tuesday and Sineu on a Wednesday

Lovely studio with great views

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here - the views out the back from the terrace are amazing (the photos don't really do it justice!) The studio was clean and had everything we needed, with some great local knowledge captured in a folder to help us decide where to eat etc. (The Rose served beautiful food and the service was great). This studio is in a great spot for enjoying walks in the Serra Tramantuna - there are maps and walking books in the studio too to use. We ended up walking for about 3-4 hours with the starting point very close to the studio- it was an amazing walk with wild goats and pigs and tremendous views.

Sitting out on the terrace, you can hear the sounds of the town below you as well as goat bells and dogs! We loved the table tennis and BBQ. We had no problem with parking - yes it was an uphill walk from the parking area but we didn't find the streets too narrow to drive around or end up with any scratches on our car.

We like to try different places so we might never come back here for that reason alone. Saying that, I wouldn't be surprised if we did come back and stay here for a long weekend as it isn't far from Palma and had everything we needed and the views are just lovely.

We saw birds of prey from the terrace.

The kitchen was well equipped.

Ideally it would have been great to have a pool but this didn't ruin the stay at all. A hot tub would have been great after the walk we did!

I agree with another reviewers comment that the shower head could do with being replaced but this is a minor issue.

The owner was friendly and easy to communicate with- especially when I accidentally booked the wrong dates and needed to change it.

We drove to Soller and Port Andratx from here.

There are supermarkets in Puigpunyent but if you want to get to a bigger one, there are some near Palma that aren't that far away (if you have a car).

There are still lots of locals living in Puigpunyent. There is a well stocked and helpful pharmacist, as well as small selection of restaurants. As the studio is self catering, we ate in most evenings.

We loved the cats that are local to the studio- nervous enough not to get too close but friendly all the same - we enjoyed watching them playing. We loved the dog next door, who would poke his head over the bush and watch us playing table tennis!

Thanks for letting us stay at the studio - it was lovely and we felt at home straight away.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nicola. I think the only negative point was the shower head - now replaced! You're welcome to stay anytime and I'm so grateful for such an honest review. The only thing that I can add is that I have been visiting this island regularly (at least 3 times a year) for over 10 years and there are always new experiences, particularly now that we've found the best days for markets!!

Relaxing and peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week during August 2017. The Studio and the outside area are lovely. The accommodation had everything that we needed. The views are outstanding. We literally 'chilled' for the week. So peaceful and relaxing. We used the local bus service on two occasions. Bus was punctual and we were in Palma within 20/25 minutes. There is a bus stop at the top of the hill just around the corner from the Studio. Our meals at the local restaurants were lovely. We used the local bakers daily for bread, croissants and pastries and we refilled our wine bottles there on a daily basis! We intend to return in the future when we need to re-charge our batteries.

Owner's Response: Thanks Elizabeth, very kind! You're welcome back whenever you want - remember that there's a pellet heater there so it is comfortable in the colder months as well. I didn't know about the bus stop at the top of the hill!

Fabulous for a couple.

  • 4 of 5

Just a thought it needs a bigger fridge with an ice dispenser. Plus new shower head.

Thank you very much for an excellent holiday stay
