Overview

About the property

Private villa suitable for up to 12 people. On The Edge Of The Countryside, And Only 8 Minutes walk to the plaza

There are the most spectacular views from this large,luxurious and private house,. With all modern facilities,ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning throughout, it is 8 minutes walk from the cafes in the medieval town plaza.

The house is perched right on the edge of the village, overlooking the countryside, so is an ideal base for walking or biking (with bikes provided) and exploring the stone walled old lanes and farm houses. It is only 7 or 8 minutes walk to the village plaza, with its cafes and shops.

The privacy and quietness surrounding the house is broken only by sheep-bells and birdsong. There are fabulous views from every window, over the fields and trees to the medieval church of San Miguel in the valley below, the Campanet Caves, Tramuntana mountains,the Bay of Alcudia, the village and of course the surrounding gardens and 12 x 5 pool. The olive and palm trees and the large garden terraces are ideal places to relax in the sun.

Campanet has good local shopping,with 2 supermarkets and 8 cafes and bars. Four of the cafes/bars are in the plaza, a perfect place for sitting outside with a cool drink. There is a market in the plaza on Tuesday morning and a smaller market just down the road in Cami Vell D'Alcudia every Saturday morning.

The nearby villages and towns of Pollensa, Sa Pobla ,Sineu,Selva, Caimari, LLubi and Inca have some excellent Mallorquin restaurants and daily markets too.

The house has an extra large basement area, especially suitable for the safe storage of bikes and your car. As the house is on the bike trail from Campanet- Caimari- Lluch- Pollensa, it's an ideal base for serious riders.

For those more interested in a bucolic bike ride to lunch in one of the local villages, the cafes of Selva, Moscari, Caimari and Buger are within easy reach. We have 5 bikes for the use of guests.

The location of the house in Campanet is perfect for professional cyclists. There is a large secure garage suitable for the storage of cycles. Campanet is on the Pollensa-Campanet-Lluc-Pollensa route and has a good number of cafes and two supermarkets for daily provisions.

About Tony Lane

My wife and I first visited Campanet in 2005 and knew immediately that we would love to live there. The vibrant life of the village,rustic historic buildings, restaurants, bars and sports center appealed to both us and our children. When we found a large piece of land right on the edge of the village, looking out over the Tramuntana Range, the thirteenth-century church of St Michael and the Bay of Alcudia we decided to buy it and renovate the house that was already there.

We found a builder who worked in the traditional style and located old doors and windows, tiles and furniture.

We live there as much as we can each year and although we promise ourselves that we will visit the rest of Spain, there is so many things to do locally that we hardly ever to manage it. In fact, we have trouble travelling to the other side of Mallorca!

Why Tony Lane chose Pollensa - Alcudia

We have found that Campanet is a really good centre to explore the north of Mallorca. The Albufera, near Alcudia, is an intriguing wildlife area, with migrating birds using it as a staging post in their trips between Africa and Europe. You don't even have to go that far however. In fact, a walk through the countryside,down the little lane next to the house, Cami Cristi, is an interesting way of uncovering the layers of Mallorcan history, from the stone-built fincas (farmhouses), to the 13th century church of St Michael, less than a kilometre away. One of the most beguiling aspects of Mallorca is the contrast of contemporary life with the traditional way of life of the villages. Within a space of 5 kilometres, or just by turning a corner, you can travel from the 21st century to the 18th.

One of our favorite bike excursions is through Caimari ( stopping for a cup of coffee) and on in a loop to Binibona, along some very beautiful country roads and then back to Campanet.

What makes this villa unique

Our favourite activities include walking or biking in the countryside, and going to the local markets- Campanet (for fresh produce), Sa Pobla or Pollensa on Sundays are our favourites. We didn't want to be in a car all of the time, so we have 5 bikes for ourselves and our guests.

We love walking up to the plaza and joining the locals watching the passing scene, drinking a cup of coffee or a glass of beer or wine.Relaxing in the garden and swimming in our pool is very enjoyable too! It's great to be feel the sun and be surrounded by the sound of nature. Pollenca is only 10-15 minutes away by car. We often take the small, medieval country road along the Campanet Valley to get there. Pollenca has some wonderful restaurants and good shopping ( especially antique shops) as well as great beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Tony, we are back, but I wanted to say that we have a spent a really wonderful time in your more than beautiful home. All the different seating areas were wonderful, especially with a big group (!), beautiful furniture, superb views, a lot of space also for the children to amuse themselves and escape the sun once in a while, very nice to be so near the Campanet village for a coffee and/or quick errand, also close enough to Palma to pick up and bring people to the airport and go for some shopping etc. etc J



The welcome by Eva was highly appreciated and we were happy to have been able to come already that early, as we had to leave the house near Cala Torta already early that Saturday!



So thank you so much again, I really hope to have an opportunity to come back one of the following years,

Beautifully positioned villa with excellent facilities and superb views.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted on our arrival by Eva who manages the house. She explained all the facilities and procedures and gave us tips on what to do and where to eat. Very useful and very accurate.

Our party ranged in age from 11 to 72 and there was something for everyone. The villa was superb and we made great use of the pool and barbeque.

Getting around the area was easy, though the masses of cyclists and the narrow streets of Campanet were a challenge. We rode the Soller train and tram - a real gem of an attraction; visited Palma (by train from Inca - why drive when there's a train every 20 minutes); climbed Mallorca's 3rd highest mountain, Massanella, being rewarded with stunning views over the entire island; descended into the Caves of Campanet - well worth a visit; visited Cap Formentor where the road is a driving challenge to be savoured; and lounged on the beach at Puerta Pollenca having ascended the 365 steps to the Calvary church in nearby Pollenca old town. We can recommend the Antic Cellar Can Cota restaurant in Sa Pobla, where we had a grand meal on our last night. All in all a great holiday - and there's still a lot to do, so a return visit is on the cards.

A more detailed description of the route to the villa from the motorway would be a good idea, as the little streets of Campanet are somewhat intimidating on first acquaintance, and the vehicular access to the villa is not on the same street as the actual address. One of our party made the mistake of relying on SatNav and ended up on a decidedly rough and unsurfaced road approaching Campanet.. (However, it's worth bearing in mind that this same person got lost trying to find Palma airport on the way back! Either the SatNav was hopelessly inaccurate or his navigation was pathetic). Personally I preferred using a downloaded map and I'm glad he wasn't navigating on the ascent of Massanella!.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the review! The little streets in Campanet are a bit confusing. I will put the Satnav address on our site for future guests! We recommend new arrivals meeting Eva, our house manager, at Bar Es Club in the Plaza when they first get to Campanet, so they can be guided to the house. We haven't been to Antic Celler Can Cota in Sa Pobla, but we're going to give it a try. Many thanks, Tony

Amazing property with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Just leaving after a lovely week. Villa is well equipped and great for a family get together or large family. Space to spread out and not get under each other's feet even when there are 12 people. Bedding and towels are all provided and of a high quality. Kids loved chilling in the pool and the BBQ area was excellent.

Great holiday - thanks!

"Simply the best"

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best holiday house we have stayed in. Everything about the house is comfortable and easy. The outdoor space is wonderful, the pool was even easily accessible for our mum who is 86, and the shaded verandah a godsend from the heat of the sun. We had an amazing holiday and thanks to Tony and Eva for the ease of booking.

Wonderful villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Maria in Campanet, all well arranged by Tony via email, who then took us to the villa and showed us around. Wow, as soon as we saw the stunning view from the veranda across the beautiful pool to the mountains we knew we were going to love it here. So peaceful and relaxing with the distant tinkling of goat bells in the distance. The villa inside was immaculately clean and tidy and beautifully furnished with a bountiful welcome basket! Very well equipped with everything, even the use of bicycles, which came in very handy to cycle into Campanet. The best villa we have ever stayed in! We are looking forward to coming back, hopefully next year.
