About Gail Griffiths

Hi, I'm Gail, and my husband and I own 11 Can Botana.

We love the island of Mallorca and visit as often as possible. Our favorite area is Pollensa - we love the beaches!

Gail Griffiths purchased this villa in 2007

Why Gail Griffiths chose Cala Sant Vicenç

The Pollenca area in the Northern Region of Mallorca - it has the most beautiful scenery, and the Best Beaches!

Cala San Vicente is like travelling back in time, and has a charm of its own. There are around fourteen restaurants in Cala, and a couple of supermarkets and a few shops. The beaches and the water are just superb!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is on a lovely well maintained complex, with only 12 villas. This enables you to go to the pool - where it can be quite sociable - then you can go back to the privacy of your own villa. Also, its only a short walk to the village, so you can buy your morning paper, or fresh bread to make lunch before you go out for the day! I especially love the rear terrace in the evening - so relaxing with just a few candles lit - and the kids in bed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Having never travelled abroad with our twins (18 months at the time) we were a little nervous about finding a holiday that ticked all the boxes; resort, weather and of course the all-important accommodation. Staying at Can Botana was everything we could have hoped for and more. From the off, Gail was most helpful with everything and, as a worrying Mum, I had quite a few questions and queries! For families or those just wanting to get away it's the perfect place. The Villa is spacious and comfortable, the beach and centre of the resort a pleasant 5 minute stroll, and the on-site pool fabulous for flaking out on the loungers or for burning off energy with the kids! We will definitely return again, we just need to find a willing babysitter now to come with us!

Fab villa & lovely location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, two children (aged 5&7) & in-laws for two weeks in August. The villa is great. It's got lots of space, is very light & modern, & has a lovely terrace to eat & relax on. The swimming pool is also great; it's well-maintained & was never very busy. It's only a 5 minute walk to the beach & some of the restaurants, but is up out of the way which makes it very peaceful.

The beach is small but lovely with a great cafe/bar. Some days the sea was too rough to swim in (very diligent life guards) but then on others it was really calm & quite warm. There are some great, & reasonably priced restaurants in Cala San Vincente & a couple of small supermarkets, although these are quite expensive & don't sell fresh meat or fish. Lidl is only a short drive away but you do need a car to get there. We hired a car for a few days so stocked up then.

There's a good bus service to Puerto Pollensa, which we used a few times. We loved the beach & restaurants there. There is also a good supermarket to pop to, if needed.

Gail was really helpful in answering any of my questions before we went.

We had a thoroughly relaxing & enjoyable holiday & I would really recommend the villa & Cala San Vincente.

Lovely villa with pool in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday here with our two young Grandsons who just loved the pool! The villa was clean with a superb well equipped kitchen and 2 lovely bathrooms.

Good location for local amenities and for short drives out exploring this beautiful part of Mallorca.

Home from Home in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to book a villa direct with an owner, and from the start, Gail could not have been more helpful or prompt with answers to my (many) questions. The villa was a delight! So spacious - there were 5 of us, but you could fit another 2 in easily. Everything you needed was there - a real home from home. The place was spotless when we arrived too. The pool, which was literally a stones throw from the front door, was a hit with all of us (one 10 year old, two teens and two parents)! It had a great and safe children's end, but our gang were really taken with the depth of the other end! Perfect for diving in! As the weather was quite hot most days, the pool was great to hop in and out of during the day. The villa has aircon in the main rooms - we lived outside mostly on the very spacious veranda so rarely used it downstairs, but it was a blessing at night. Cala San Vincen' is a quiet little village with not a lot going on in terms of nightlife - but that suited us fine. There is a lovely bar on the beach front and several little restaurants within walking distance. The beach is lovely too - we had some great waves while we were there, great for bodysurfing. We also managed a couple of nice walks - you can walk to Port de Pollensa right from the villa - great not to have to take the car everywhere. We used the local Lidl and Eroski for shopping - both of them out on the main road, just outside of Pollensa - only a few minutes drive away and both stocked really well. We thoroughly enjoyed our week away and would happily recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful Spacious Villa in a lovely quiet location

  • 4 of 5

This is a gorgeous, large and well maintained villa. My husband and 2 children had a lovely stay here, in July 2016, and the villa would easy have accommodated another 2 or 3 guests with ease. It has a very light and airy decoration and perfect for a chill out holiday. I would have given this 5 stars, as the villa alone easily merits this, however the only slight draw back is that the local area is very quiet and a car is a must. That said if you are looking for a lovely quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle then I would highly recommend this villa.

Super Location - Fabulously Refurbished Villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this fabulous Villa for two weeks with friends. The Villa is beautifully furnished and spacious with a very homely feel. Loved the new bathrooms especially the waterfall showers and constant supply of hot water. The up to date kitchen is extremely well equipped, we enjoyed our daily cups of coffee from the Nespresso machine. On the evenings we didn't feel like eating out we took advantage of the BBQ provided and dined on the back terrace taking in the views. We hired a car to see some of the island so it was great to arrive back at the Villa and chill out on the sunbeds by the pool. Ideal location for both cycling and walking especially the walk (not strenuous) to Puerto Pollensa starting from the Villa. Having stayed in a number of Villas in different countries would rate this as one of the best we have stayed in. A special thank you to the owners for their assitance with our holiday arrangements.

This newly refurbished spacious villa is a lovely place to stay for a relaxing holiday with family.

  • 5 of 5

We were at the villa for two weeks in August 2016, 5 adults and 2 teenagers all together and there was plenty of space for us all, and we were delighted with the facilities provided. There is a modernised kitchen complete with a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble-dryer. There is also a calcium filter on the water which makes the dishes easier to clean. It was great to have Wi-Fi all throughout the villa and UK TV Channels for our teenage children. The newly refurbished bathrooms look fantastic and the waterfall shower was so easy to use and you also have the option of using the bath if you need. After great days on the beach, we could look forward to dining on the back terrace with plenty of space for everybody to eat and to relax. The local village at Cala San Vincente is very picturesque and it has three different beaches. These are great for sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling and even kayaking. The local shops are within walking distance from the villa which was great for getting fresh daily bread. There are also numerous restaurants and bars in the bay and I would recommend a visit to Pepe's. Within a short drive is Puerto Pollenca with a lovely beach, shops and restaurants and both Alcudia and Pollenca Old Towns which host markets and have resident shops and restaurants. The owners were very helpful with the booking and advice on anything we needed and I would highly recommend this property for a visit to Mallorca.

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The proximity of the beach and resort makes Ca'n Botana a great spot for families. The villa is in a beautiful area in the North of the island, next door to the famous old town of Pollensa, and the beach resort of Puerto Pollensa. It has fabulous sandy beaches - perfect for children, and the warm Mediterranean sea! Cala San Vicente has three coves, and our villa is only a 3 minute walk to the lovely beach Cala Molins.

Travel:

There are lots of flights available from local airports to Palma. It takes around 40 minutes in a car from Palma to Cala San Vicente, as the new motorway has made it a much shorter and easier journey.

Distances:

The villa is situated in walking distance of Cala San Vicente, with local restaurants and shops. Pollensa old town is 5km away, with a rich history and the famous steps. Puerto Pollensa is also only 5km away which is a busier resort, but has a very large sandy bay.
