Overview

About the property

Villa in Arta, North East Mallorca, Balearic Islands - Large Private Swimming Pool Set in 5 Acres of Landscaped Gardens and Almond Groves

Quality and comfort sums up Sa Font Calenta. The villa offers everything you could wish for a relaxing holiday. The exterior is in a typical 'Finca' style with attractive local stonework and natural timbers. Whilst inside is a mix of classic and contemporary styles. The location is private and secluded, yet you are just minutes from all the holiday essentials: good beaches, restaurants, bars and shops. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is modern with high quality appliances and very well equipped. Choose from 3 dining areas dependant on the mood and temperature and enjoy the stunning views of the local countryside and views of Arta's Gothic church in the distance. The gardens surrounding the house are sympathetically landscaped to encompass the natural stone and wide variety of trees. Carefully positioned spotlights light up the garden, house and pool at night. There is a large pool side terrace with outdoor kitchen and gas barbecue, outdoor living at its very best!

About Olivia Hutton

Before Mike and I had our children, I was a National Sales Manager within the Hotel Industry. Currently, I manage and market our home in Mallorca and other rental properties in the UK.

Mike has owned his own business in the IT Industry since 1992.

We've been fortunate to have experienced some lovely self catering holidays over the years and we have enjoyed using the best ideas in our own properties- we hope that you will enjoy them!

Olivia Hutton purchased this villa in 2006

Why Olivia Hutton chose Artà

Majorca appealed with its ease of access, great climate, excellent restaurants and picturesque countryside. We visited the island regulary, staying in villas of all shapes and sizes and each time looking for that 'special' place to call our own.

After 6 years we discovered Arta, we had tended to stay on the outskirts of Palma but now with a growing family our 'wish list' of the perfect holiday home was even greater. We still wanted ease of access to Palma and the airport, good restuarants etc. But Arta and the surrounding costal area also offered beautiful unspoilt countryside and beaches, perfect for the children.

It took 2 years from the purchase of 'Sa Font Calenta' to its completion, and it has been a pleasure to put together all the good ideas (and avoid the bad ones!)

What makes this villa unique

Sa Font Calenta is predominatly our home rather than a rental investment, we hope that this will show in its finish and attention to detail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful villa! We loved the space, facilities, décor and the location. This is a stunning home which is perfectly set-up to be shared by couples or families. Arta is an authentic little town with good choice of places to eat and shops to browse. There was plenty to occupy our two small children in the surrounding area, including some beautiful beaches. Thank you for an amazing holiday. We’re already planning a return visit! The Sheppard and Marrett family - May 2010.



We had a wonderful stay in your gorgeous house and its beautiful surroundings

We really appreciated how child friendly it was and the top notch condition of the house and all the equipment. Thanks again and we would absolutely consider coming back and we will of course warmly recommend the house to our friends should they consider a stay in Mallorca. Karlsson Family, London, May 2011.

Coast/Beach:

The Arta coastline is 254kms in length, still preserves its natural state and has been protected from development. Just 10 minutes drive away you can reach several lovely beaches. Cala Mesquida, Cala Torta, Cala Agulla to name a few. Cala Agulla is our personal favourite with horse riding, sand dunes and forest. Most have kiosks and wcs. Details of more remote beaches are provided in the Villa guest information and from tourist information.

Travel:

Airport: Palma 50kms. Railway: Manacor 25kms (direct service from Palma). Ferry: Palma 50kms. Car hire is recommended to make the most of your holiday. The journey from the airport has been made so much easier since the new motorway from Palma to St Lorenc was completed and is a very pleasant drive of approximately 45 minutes.

Distances:

Arta town centre - 5 mins drive - 20 minutes walk.

Colonia de St Pere - 15 mins.

Palma City - 50 mins.

Manacor - 30 mins.

Cala Ratjada - 20 mins.

Port de Pollensa 40 mins.

Alcudia - 30 mins.

Further Details:

Arta is Mallorcan through and through for history, churches and fine food. The central pedestrian streets are crammed with restaurants, bars and lots of shops and Tuesday is market day. There are also several banks and a 24 hour medical centre in the centre of town. Further activities near to Arta include watersports, horse riding, fishing and cycling.

Thanks, Olivia, for a very restful and comfortable stay in your lovely home. Felix and the housekeeping team were very attentive and, despite the inclement weather, we much enjoyed our holiday and hope to return on a future visit to Mallorca.

Best wishes, Alison

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay and felt I had to write a review...

This villa is idyllic, set in beautiful countryside, spectacular views from the terrace and even more impressive from the upstairs balcony. The villa has everything you need with a well appointed pool area with covered bbq seating area. The bathrooms are luxurious and bedrooms are comfortable with great wardrobe space. Everything was well kept and spotlessly clean. Arta town is very picturesque and unspoilt with some nice little shops and restaurants. Market day on a Tuesday is a must. Would defiantly stay here again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Sa Font Calenta is a beautifully designed and equipped house. It is easy walking distance to Arta which has a lovely vibe, and easy driving distances to lots of other outings. Too cool to swim in April so walks and bike rides best, but I imagine it is difficult to leave the place in the summer other than to stroll down the garden to the pool area. The house has generous bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms with super comfy beds and soft bedlinen. The organisation of the keys etc.. all worked like clockwork.

Erholung pur

In dieser tollen, großzügig geschnittenen und gut ausgestatteten Finca kann man sich super erholen.

Die Lage im Grünen und auf einem Hügel ermöglicht einen weiten Blick über die umliegende Langschaft. Herrlich!

Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage.
