About Max Born

Hi everyone, Sue and I built this house to our own design in 2,000 and 2,001. It is the third house we have built here in the 25 years we have lived here in Mallorca. We have two children, girls, who have grown up here and are young adults now, and live nearby. We moved here from west London in 1986. Sue is a designer, painter and teacher of yoga. I, Max, am a builder, writer, musician and songwriter. We know our area of Mallorca intimately and can direct you to the best beaches, restaurants, fiestas and so on. While we rent our house to you we live nearby, and personally help with any problems you may have. Hoping to meet you soon. Thanks, Max and Sue.

What a beautiful house! The setting is perfect for a lovely peaceful holiday away from the stresses and strains of life. There is literally nobody else around, sheer bliss.

The decor inside the house is incredibly tastefully done, with additions by the artistic owner.

It is incredibly well equipped in the kitchen and in general, we didn't want for anything.

There is a supermarket not far away to stock the cupboards and fridge with and the village of Felanitx is incredibly charming.

Car hire is essential, and also very useful to explore further afield.

The owners local knowledge is extensive and should be listened to as we had some wonderful evenings and days out on their recommendations.

We will definitely be revisiting and I would highly recommend that others do too.

Owner's Response: Well that is very nice to hear. It is always great to know that our guests have enjoyed their stay in our Finca, and have been able to relax and unwind from the stresses of life. Do come and see for yourselves what a lovely location we have, on the slopes of San Salvador mountain, with views clear across the island, and the forest behind us. And as they said, we know Mallorca well having lived here nearly 30 years now, and can tell you about everything worthwhile doing and seeing while you are here, including Fiestas and Art events and openings, and concerts and so on.

A perfect getaway.

The house is beautifully crafted with lots of artistic detail from the lovely owners.

We were able to relax completely, everything you could need is provided, even high speed wi fi if you need to be in touch with the outside world.

We will be regulars at this little paradise

We have been visiting Mallorca for over thirty years and for the last two summers we have stayed at Casa Verde. The house served the needs of our diverse family very well; meeting the requirements of 8 family members ranging in age from 8 to 70 isn’t always easy but the house and its location did not disappoint.

The house is in an amazing, peaceful location, just below the San Salvador monastery and was immaculately clean, well-organised, homely, well-furnished and spacious. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms are all generous in size and tastefully decorated. Three of the bedrooms are downstairs, whilst for those wanting a little escape of their own, the upstairs bedroom and bathroom feel private and have a large private terrace offering uninterrupted views across beautiful countryside.

The kitchen is large with enough room for 8 to eat comfortably, although the terrace outside with its large dining area is perfect for al fresco dining on warm summer evenings. The gardens are beautiful and set within these is the swimming pool which is large enough for serious swimmers and sufficiently shallow for young children to play and splash about.

The house is easy to reach down its own private drive off a rural road and feels private yet secure, not being overlooked by any other property. The woodland around the house is ideal for exploring before the heat of the day arrives. A short drive away is Felanitx, a ‘proper’ Mallorcan working town, which hosts a lovely market on Sundays and offers a number of great places for lunch. On Sundays, the ‘menu del dia’ at Bar Mercardo is a must whilst the elegant restaurant ‘Estragon’ provides a beautiful and inexpensive lunch or a more special dining experience in the evening.

The location of Casa Verde is perfect for those wishing to escape the crowds in the resorts, whilst only being a short drive away from the coast should fancy a dip in the sea. However, once you arrive at Casa Verde it is unlikely that you will want to travel very far! The owners are warm and welcoming and are happy to offer advice on places to visit or eat. Casa Verde is truly special and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
