About The Owner

We live in the village of Theydon Bois, Essex with our two teenage children, two cats and a dog.

We enjoy travelling and spending time socialising with our family and friends.

We have totally fallen in love with Cala D'Or and treasure our family holidays spent there.

Why The Owner chose Santanyi

Our aim is to provide families with a home from home family holiday experience. After booking numerous villa holidays ourselves, we now know what facilities help achieve that ultimate luxury family holiday.

First we have chosen the right location for families with young children - with everything within walking distance from the local attractions (beaches, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, etc).

Having a private/secluded swimming pool, together with a lawned area and BBQ terrace helps families to relax and enjoy themselves within the villa grounds.

The villa is well decorated throughout and is cleaned to a high standard at the start of each rental.

Having sky tv, a dvd player and a selection of games and films, we aim to provide young families with some indoor entainment too!

What makes this villa unique

Once arriving at Villa Sofia, you are now ready to start your holiday!

You can take a 5 minute walk down to the local supermarket to stock up the fridge and then relax and enjoy your stay.

With a large selection of bars and restaurants in Cala Ferrera, you can easily just pop down the road to have a snack or dinner or walk into Cala D'Or town and experience the atmosphere of the slightly busier environment.

With a choice of safe and stunning local beaches all within walking distance, you are perfectly situated for that beach holiday experience.

Perfect family holiday in fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week holiday in villa Sofia. This was our first holiday as a family since the birth of our son eight months ago.

The owners Tony and Sue are such nice, genuine and honest people.

The villa is kept in a really nice condition. It was spotless when we arrived and the bedding and towels were all clean and white. There were little nice touches like milk & a bottle of water in the fridge as well as tea and coffee being left out for our arrival. There are some books, DVDs and playing cards available for use.

It was really nice having a travel cot and high chair available. It meant that we did not have additional baggage to lug around to and from the airport and I could keep my son in his routine eating in a high chair and sleeping in a cot.

We enjoyed having a BBQ in the villa and having the option of going for a swim at night which is something we could not have done if we had stayed in a hotel. This made us feel like we were home from home and it was nice not having any set times to do things like having meals etc.

We enjoyed sunbathing and swimming during the day. The pool is a nice size and benefits from the sun from the morning to early evening. At night it was lovely laying on the sunbeds just looking at the stars. It was really peaceful during the day and night.

The villa is ideally located and is close to the beach. It is also close to the main shopping and restaurant district. The food is reasonably priced and people around seemed very friendly and happy.

This was our first time holidaying in Mallorja and in a villa and we had a really nice time and would definitely recommend villa Sofia and will definitely go back.

Thank you Tony and Sue.

Great villa fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Great villa fantastic location, I have stayed in this villa on 2 previous occasions on this occasion I took my parents,brother, sister in law with their young son and my partner, as before wasn't disappointed as there was many upgrades including new bathroom, kitchen upgraded. I was looking to book again this year for the end of June and come across a 2 star review which I couldn't quite understand!!! Over the years I've stayed in a number of villas in Cala dor and this is the best I've found hence why I booked to stay in Casa Sofia 3 years in a row and looking to book a fourth. The owners Tony and sue couldn't be more helpful always at the end of the phone if I needed advice on places to go which is a great personal touch compared to the big villa companies who I've used before in the past. And the addition of wifi was a great help to keep in touch and send pics and videos to everyone at home. so if your looking to book a villa I highly recommend villa Sofia

Beautiful Villa in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to be invited to join friends who had rented this lovely villa towards the end of October last year. Never having taken a break so late in the summer we were a little concerned as to what the weather would be like. As it turned out it was fantastic - sunny and warm on most days which allowed us to make full use of the beautifully maintained and very private garden and patio area. We had several lovely barbeques

The Villa contained everything you would ever need - a real home from home and a credit to the owners.

The location of the villa is great - no need to hire a car as beaches, shops, bars and the stunning Marina are all in walking distance.

We enjoyed ourselves so much at Villa Sofia that we are hoping to take our family over later this year.

Promised so much, delivered little

  • 2 of 5

Disappointed I have to say.

The reviews promised so much and I based my booking on these.

On the positive, the pre booking communication was excellent, most accommodating also in our arrival and departure times, thank you. The location was good, save for the noisy neighbours who seemed to have ridiculously loud music playing at unreasonable times.

The villa itself is tired and needs a little investment in order to make it 'luxurious'

None of the old wooden shutters closed properly without a lot of effort, the side ones in the lounge are positively rotten. The upstairs terrace is all green and mouldy and needs a damn good clean.

The bathrooms are adequate, but could do with more powerful showers and decent ventilation, the windows are far too small. The outside pool area is reasonable, although could again do with a little cosmetic improvement. The BBQ was no use at all. Kitchen was basic but just about adequate for a week with very little work surface space.

We had an issue with the Sky TV after a short power cut. I emailed and texted the owners but heard nothing back until an hour later when there was a knock on the door and a guy who said he was a neighbour had received a call from the owners about the issue. It would have been polite and decent for the owner to have responded to me first to let me know this was happening. To date I have heard nothing from anyone. This would normally not have been too much of an issue but 2 of our party were a little unwell and the TV would have provided a useful distraction.

Very poor service.

I would stay in the area again, but not in this property.

Love it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Having recently returned from our second stay at Villa Sofia with my wife and two girls, I felt another review was needed. We love this place, it definite makes us feel like we have a home from home. The villa is lovely and has everything you need. The girls love the pool and its so much nicer to have a villa for them to take time out in rather than just a hotel room. As mentioned in my first review, everything is nearby and the area of Cala D'or/Fererra is still buzzing with restaurants and nightlife. We visited the beautiful Marina again for our anniversary (25 min walk or 10min on land train) and had a great meal in beautiful surroundings. The weather was stunning all week, but it was the villa that made the holiday for us that our girls will never forget.

Sue & Tony - if you ever come to part with your beautiful villa, be sure and call us first 😃
