About the property

Pretty Casita with large pool in Llucmajor, Mallorca - Tranquil countryside location yet close to an attractive Town. Short drive to Beaches & Golf

A lovely spacious two roomed Casita in a tranquil setting within the grounds of a country Finca. There is a 10 x 6 metre swimming pool shared only with the owners, ample parking and your own private terraces to the front and rear, providing sunbathing by the pool, and outdoor BBQ & dining areas. The lounge is open plan, with fitted well equipped kitchen and dining area. The en-suite bedroom is large, has mobile air-con, and a super king-sized bed. Only 1km away is the typically Spanish Town of Llucmajor with its large pedestrianised town square. Llucmajor has a wide range of restaurants and bars, shops, a large weekly market and regular fiestas. There is excellent road access to beaches, coves, golf courses, Palma, the airport and the rest of the Island. It is an ideal base to tour the Island by car or cycle, many cyclists use the area for their out of season training. There are also buses into Palma from the town. If you are looking for peace and quiet but want access to places of interest and local amenities this is the ideal location, and just in case you really need to keep in touch with what's going on at home the Casita has UK freeview TV and Wi-Fi. Suitable for holidays all year round.

About The Owner

I have lived in Mallorca since 2001 with my husband Charles and our two cats Chiqui and Jasmin (both rescued). We absolutely love living here and could never return to the UK.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

Why The Owner chose Llucmajor

We chose to live in a rural area near a typically spanish town, to help us to learn the language, and experience Spanish culture all year round. They have really great fiestas!

What makes this apartment unique

The airport is 15 mins away and the beautiful Capital, Palma, is only 25 mins away. Palma is fantastic, if you haven't been there I urge you to go, I know you won't regret it. It is also an easy drive from our Finca to a variety of beaches, from the long sandy bays of Palma and Es Trenc to the small coves of the east coast. We love the outdoor lifestyle we have here too. There is nothing better than sitting with a G&T out on the terrace, looking out over the pool, garden and fields beyond, and listening to the birds. We regularly see large Red and Black Kites (hawks) flying overhead.

The area is great for walking and the walks range from easy to up to the top of Randa (590kms high).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed staying in your lovely Casita with its beautiful pool. We had a relaxing time and found the rural location very quiet and peaceful. We also enjoyed sampling the local restaurants where we found excellent food and friendly service. Having visited Mallorca many times since our Honeymoon in 1970 this has to be one of the nicest places we have stayed at and hope to return some time. Dave & Pat - May 2014



Back again for the 5th time - another excellent holiday. Even the weather was good with 30+ on some days. Had an excellent Halloween night in Llucmajor square, even better as we were sitting outside at restaurant Caliuet (super tapas, food and friendly staff) one of our many visits there this trip. Look forward to being back next year. Dave and Jo 23rd Oct to 5th Nov 2014



Thoroughly enjoyed our first holiday on Majorca, found the apartment very comfortable and well equipped. Weather couldn't have been better. Loved seeing all the beautiful countryside when driving around the Island. Enjoyed meeting Sheila, Charles and their pets. We hope to return.

HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a very relaxing 10 day stay at the Casita. The place is an absolute gem of a find and the location is PERFECT!

You feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere but you’re only a 5-10 minute drive to Llucjamor and 20 minutes from Palma. I had previously only been to Alcudia, staying in Hotels and would certainly never do that again! It was lovely to see a side to Majorca I’ve never seen before. To be honest I have given Europe a bit of a miss over the last 10 years, choosing to go further afield to avoid noisy Brits.

The Casita offered us an opportunity to have a good base and travel the Island, whilst choosing to spend some days relaxing by the Pool. We went late September and still had fantastic weather.

In the Casita was a guest book with many recommendations of where to go and Sheila & Charles were also very helpful in providing us with some local knowledge. The whole Island was very popular with cyclists as the roads are very flat, so if you’re a keen cyclist you’ll be in heaven!

The whole place was very well equipped with everything you would need. We had our 18mo daughter with us and were provided with a travel cot, bedding and a highchair.

We would absolutely return to Majorca again soon and wouldn’t hesitate in going anywhere else!

Even though we travelled to lots of beautiful places we agreed that we were in the best location, with the best of both worlds. You’re off the beaten track so you feel like you’re away from it all, whilst being able to travel to Llucjmajor which is a traditional town but with a supermarket and a few bigger shops.

It’s probably one of the best Holidays we have ever been on, and the most relaxing – which is an achievement with a baby in tow!

Some of our favourite places include: Palma, Cala Figuera (stunning views!) Sanctuari de Cura (beautiful Monastery turned Hotel, a stone throw away and offers 360 degree views of the Island!), Port de Soller (incredible views again and amazing drive through the Mountains) and Valldemosa. Each place we went to was completely different, to the point where you felt like you were in a different country each time.

We did hire a car and found it to very useful but I’m sure you could make do without one and use the taxi and bus service should you need it. If you are going to hire a car I would definitely go with a reputable one. We used Enterprise and had no problems.

Overall a wonderful Holiday! Thanks again Sheila and Charles.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We would highly recommend Sheila and Charles's accomodation for a relaxing and comfortable stay near the town of

Llucmajor. Possible to walk to town, around 25 mins, with nice bars and restaurants but having a hire car was certainly useful. Home from home and Charles and Sheila very kind and helpful but unobtrusive. Lovely pool and bbq area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Relaxing, quiet and peaceful hide away

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from a week staying in this lovely little Casita.

The property is as it says on the website and pretty much has everything you need for a self catering holiday.

Charles and Sheila were very helpful with tips and information on the island and although they live next door, didn't feel at all intrusive. They were there if we needed them.

We hired a motorcycle for the week and found it a great way to see the island. The Casita is not far from town but we would recommend hiring a car or bike just for convenience.

All in all a really lovely break and peaceful spot.

Wonderful Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a week here and had a fantastic time. The casita is just as good as it looks on the website, clean, lovely and spacious with great facilities. Charles and Sheila were great hosts and were very helpful.

We didn't hire a car and walked into the town most evenings and took buses to the beach and to Palma which worked well although I would recommend hiring a car if you really want to get out and about, we just wanted to stay home and relax so the hire car would have stayed on the drive most of the time!

All in all, the best property we have stayed in so far through Owners Direct, didn't disappoint at all. By the end of the week we realised that it was best to get the air conditioning unit on in plenty of time and keep it on throughout the night as it did get warm and, although it was a little noisy it did mean we slept better.

The town is a beautiful, unspoilt Spanish town and it was great sitting in the square eating wonderful tapas in the evenings and enjoying the ambience.

Thoroughly recommend and would definitely consider returning.

Lovely relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

Just back from 12 days R and R in Llucmajor. Apartment has everything you need and is clean, with a pool area that is great for soaking up the sun right until it sets. The pool itself is a great size and ideal for a quick dip when the temperature soars.

Llucmajor is a small town with a lovely centre/square with small bars and resturants. Whilst we were there a festival was on for the weekend which brought everyone out and was great to see.

The appartment is in an ideal location to tour the south east corner of Majorca (hire car preferred), however it is so easy to get about that the whole island is accesable.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Charles and Sheila are good hosts, prepared to leave you to yourselves or are quite happy to chat as required.

The reason for 4 stars is that the only downside was the outdated A/C unit which didnt really do a lot therefore some nights were rather warm.....I'm sure Charles will update it soon ; )

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and the town. Sorry you didn't mention the aircon. while here. The main problem was that the exhaust pipe was split and blowing hot air back into the room. Once spotted this was repaired and subsequent guests had no problems. You are right though, it is getting old and will be replaced for 2015. Take care and hope to see you again.

Lovely and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious and well equipped apartment, with helpful and friendly owners who made us feel very welcome.

It has everything you need to make it a home from home. It's an excellent base to explore from as it's within easy reach of many local beaches and the beautiful City of Palma.

Although we didn't cycle when we were there, my husband who is a keen cyclist, says it would be a perfect place for a cycling holiday.

We loved the big pool and peace and quiet the best though.

We will be back.
