This property was bought by my parents for the enjoyment of us as a family which we have over the last 35 years together with other members of family and friends. I have taken over from my parents the every-day running and maintenance carried out by friends of my parents who have known them for many years and provide a high standard of maintenance and excellent service.

A Relaxing Holiday In An Beautiful Location
Just returned from San Telmo, after having a well earned holiday.We've been visiting and staying in the apartment for more than ten years and find it the perfect place to chill out and relax. On arrival, the apartment is welcoming and homely. It is always spotless, with ample household equipment [perfect for self catering]. The 'Welcome Pack' in the fridge is a bonus, especially when arriving late at night. Opening the doors to the terrace is always a treat even after so many stays, the gardens in the complex are full of colour and the view of hillside rocks and little bay below are stunning. A short scenic walk down to San Telmo reveals a beautiful little village with a sandy beach, a variety of restaurants, shops, bars and friendly faces. We love it and look forward to our next visit.
A truly beautiful spot and fantastic apartment
We arrived at the apartment late and were very pleased to open the fridge and find a chilled drink and breakfast items. The apartment was perfect for us, very clean with superbly comfortable beds. Having tv and English programmes was a bonus with two teenage boys. The view from the balcony was spectacular, and yes to the right were other apartments but you can still see the Beach and the sea very well. We loved St Elm and all its lovely restaurants and plan to visit again without doubt and would love the use of this apartment again. After a week the very friendly couple who look after the place came and changed bedding and gave us fresh towels. We managed to lock the key in one day, but no problem as Enrique came to our rescue with a spare! Phew!! We went exploring and took a boat trip to Dragonera Island, the boys enjoyed that, especially all the lizards they discovered. All in all a perfect stay and wonderfully relaxing! Just what we needed. Will return to this splendid bay. Thankyou
Very enjoyable stay as usual
Just returned from St Elm, a wonderful holiday location. The apartment is very homely with all the facilities. There is an excellent restaurant with a swimming pool within the complex with stunning views. A short walk to the main beach and village centre, which has a selection of good restaurants, bars and shops. This was our sixth time to the same apartment and we will be going again soon.
I’m afraid the words used to describe the property in particular the outside view ect are totally misleading, the picture shown is taken from one end of the terrace looking down. Look a little to the right and the view then is the rear of a 4 story block 20 m in front totally obscuring any view of the sea.
“Located in a private complex on the waters’ edge with view from terrace onto a small bay with pebble beach and rocks with direct access to the sea.”
Another quote “The apartments are located in a private complex and overlooks lovely mature gardens" I note this has now been removed from the overview on the 17th May 2015. What you see is the pics below.
We didn’t stay in the apartment and left and found a local hotel.

Activity and Interests
San Telmo has a lovely well-maintained, sandy beach with a play area for children and just 5 minutes walk from the apartment. There is a small pebble bay and beach directly at the side of the apartments.
The airport in Palma is about 40 mins. by taxi or car hire. There are some wonderful places of interest to visit in Majorca and there is plenty of information on places to visit in the apartment. For the adventurous a trip to some of the pretty villages along the mountain range is thoroughly recommended.
San Telmo is about 8km from Andraitx and 40 km from Palma
There are some really good supermarkets to be found in most of the surrounding towns. In Andraitx there is Euroski, Port Andraitx and Mercadona in Paguera. Market day, Wednesday morning in
Andraitx and Saturday morning a smaller one in S’Aracco.
The village runs parallel with the beach and has a pedestrianised walkway. Everything you need can be found including mini-marts, a good selection of restaurants and a handful of the usual shops and chemist. The village is unspoilt even at the busiest time.
