About Suzanne Slater

After working on private yachts for many years my partner and I finally settled on Mallorca after falling in love with the fabulous scenery and the scope the island has for sports and recreation. Having first done a lenthly renovation to the 19th century L'Escaleta and then run it as a small hotel for some years, we are now ready to step back and spend the summers with our children on the beach and let other people enjoy our home. We hope you enjoy the friendly village life and jasmin scented garden as much as we have.

Suzanne Slater purchased this house in 1999

Why Suzanne Slater chose Andratx

We bought L'Escaleta because of its its fantastic position - we are located in a traditional Mallorquian village far away from the tourist traps and yet we have everything close by.S'arraco is at the foot of the magnificent Tramuntana mountain range,we are only 10 minutes from the beach of St Elmo, 10 minutes from the chic Port Andratx and 40 minutes from Palma. So we really do have it all!

What makes this house unique

Whilst staying at L'Escaleta you are only 2 minutes walk from anything you might need - we have everything in the village - bars,a tapas/pizza restaurant ,a shop and banks. And since we have been operating as a small hotel for many years we can also offer as much catering, shopping, or babysitting services as you wish in order to make your holiday as relaxing as possible.

L'Escaleta is suitable for families because the pool is in the gated area of the garden and we also have doors at the top and bottom of the staircases to keep your little ones safe.
