About the Owner
I have recently retired, but previously for many years worked as a senior manager within a large organisation, my wife is a nurse specialising in midwifery, having worked in the UK and abroad and now working at a local hospital here in the UK. We live in the north of England. We look forward to our holidays in Sant Elm as much now as we did some 20 years ago, where there is no better place to have a relaxing peaceful holiday, in the sun, with beautiful scenery, beaches, excellent restaurants and always with friendly, welcoming people.

Peaceful & Perfect Retreat
San Telm is unspoilt, has the right mixture of clear water, sun, friendly beach cafes and shops. We stayed in this apartment for 7 nights in June and had a wonderful holiday. 2 adults and a 16 & 17 old who loved it too. The pool at the complex is fantastic with amazing views over the water. Very comfortable accommodation that has everything you need. The patiio has views of the cove (2 min walk to it) where you can watch the boats coming and going from San Telm. Main beach only a pleasant 10 min walk away. Very picturesque place & welcoming people. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip and will definitely go again!
Pieceful with gorgeous view
We spent 5 nights at this lovely, pieceful place with a gorgeous view of the sea. We travel with 2 kids age 4 and 6, and they enjoyed it too. The private pools were a bid cold this time of year, but we went to the rocks below the appartment and had a great time. The town is only a 8-10 min. walk, and the nearest small beach 5 min. away. St. Elm is an fantastic sweet spot and a very, very nice corner of Mallorca. The apartment itself worked very well for us, a nice spacious terrace and great to be outside and nice surroundings. We rate it 3 stars in terms of space and equipment, there were everything you need in standard quality. We rate the location, the view, the surroundings, the view, the peace and quiet, the beautiful St. Elm and the whole atmposphere at this place 4 stars.
From the Owner
“We have been visiting Sant Elm or Santelmo as it used to be called since 1980. We have owned this apartment since 1993. We fell in love with Sant Elm , the people and Mallorca on our first visit. The calmness of the village, the Crystal clear water and beautiful views make you want to return time after time. From people watching to relaxing on the beach, from enjoying lunch or dinner in a restaurant to exploring the many trails in the surrounding country side. Sant Elm has it all for us, and maybe you too.”
