Unspoilt village on UNESCO world heritage west coast of Mallorca

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Spacious studio with views of the olive tree covered hills

The Studio is above a private garage on the main street to the village which is on the road to Palma and Andrax. You enter the property through its own front door and steps lead up to the Studio on the first floor.

Guests who have stayed always remark on how spacious and airy thy find the appartment .

The Studio is well equipped and there is a large cupboard to store ones clothes, etc.

The furnishings are simple and in keeping with the surroundings. Sheets and towels are provided but do bring your own beach towels.

There are two large French windows , one opens up onto the private terrace with a table and chairs where you can eat and sit. The second window opens up onto the view of the hills.

There are two free car parks, one at either end of the village. You may also park on the street where there are no yellow lines.

The galley type kitchen has a large window that opens onto the terrace.

You can access WiFi at the local Valhermos Bar.

The village of Estellencs on the North West coast of Mallorca has hardly changed since my father bought the property in the 1950s .

Originally the village had electricity supplied by a local wood fed generator which was switched off at midnight. Fortunatly for some time we have been connected to the mains electricity supply !

Another plus is that we have a good and regular bus service from the village to Palma so a car is not essential.

The families in this small village are the same I knew and went to school with in the late 1950s.

Maria and her family help to look after the three little properties I let in Estellencs.

Guiem , his family and their charming waitresses cook and run Restaurant Montimar where they always give you a warm welcome and delicious local food.

There are a couple of little bars where you can get snacks etc.

When we are in Estellencs we like to walk down the attractive path down to the beach . Others choose to drive down on the road. There is parking just above the beach.

Adrian and his wife run a bar/ snack bar ovelooking the beach and the coast , a perfect place to watch the sunset .

Estellencs is also a lovely spot from where to walk with superb views of the mountains and sea.In the town hall, a few doors away from the Studio, you can get pamphlets with suggested walks.

If you hire a car you can venture further to discover so many enchanting and hidden places.

The most constant remark I receive from guests who come to Mallorca for the first time is how beautiful they find this part of Mallorca.

I hope you will come and discover for your self the charm of Estellencs and this UNESCO World Heritage coast .

About the Owner

Estellencs became my family's home in 1952 when my father bought some tumble down cottages which he converted into our home. As a family we lived there and went to school in the village. Our children have become attached to the village and the people who live there as we are . We live in the UK but spend time in Estellencs when we can, for me it's 'home'.

Fröhlich, freundliche Geborgenheit

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, der kleine Ort ist sehr schön, die nähere Umgebung lässt sich gut zu Fuß erkunden - wir sind zur Bucht gewandert. Für weitere Ausflüge hatten wir einen Mietwagen, der kleine Parkplatz ist super gelegen. Im Studio haben wir alles vorgefunden, was wir für unseren Urlaub benötigten, die Terasse ist wunderschön. Die Restaurants vor Ort haben uns

gut verwöhnt, besonders im Montamar haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Der Ort war für uns genau richtig, nicht zu ruhig, aber auch nicht zu hektisch.

Das Klima war sehr angenehm.

Dank der guten Beschreibung haben wir das Ferienobjekt gut gefunden und

konnten uns auch im Ort leicht zurechtfinden. Wir würden das Studio auf

jeden Fall weiter empfehlen.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Anfangs gab es Probleme mit den E-Mails, weil sie von 'Homeaway' nicht weitergeleitet wurde, aber ansonsten war die Kommunikation mit der Vermieterin sehr gut und vertrauensvoll. Das Studio war sehr sauber und hübsch eingerichtet. Der Ort mit seinen guten Restaurants war traumhaft. Zum Frühstück kann man sich super mit frischen Produkten beim kleinen Supermarkt eindecken. Der größere Parkplatz am Ende der Straße war praktisch fürs Mietauto. Der nächste größere Ort - Andratx - und die Schnellstraßen waren in 20 Min mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Insgesamt hatten wir eine wunderbare Zeit dort und auf der Insel.

Estallenches Studio appartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything that has been written about this delightful studio, I can endorse. It really does feel spacious - I stayed here for three weeks during June - and some of the time I was editing some work. It was the perfect place to be. A twenty minute walk down the mountain slopes and you reach the clear blue waters of the little bay The views from the Studio day and night are breathtaking. The scenery constantly changing with the mood of the weather. Whilst it is helpful to have a car, you could happily be here without one. Weekdays there is a good and entertaining bus service into Palma, and the new underground bus station in Palma is a welcome retreat away from the heat of the mid-day sun.

There is a variety of eating places in the village all worth a try. My favourite is the Montimar for the sheer delight of the deserts but loved the cafe overlooking the sea and mountains where you can sit for hours with a simple snack and a glass of wine. There is a small shop providing all the basics. On Fridays (maybe not all the year round?) a little market is set up in the village selling cheeses,salami etc., olives, wine, fruit and vegetables. All fresh and some seem very local.

I have been visiting Estallenches for more than twenty years and seen it slowly change from a quite remote village into one very much in touch with the 21 century yet retaining its unique character. This Studio totally fits in with this. It has all the modern conveniences yet sits happily in its surroundings. The owners have taken great care and it was a pleasure to meet them when I was there. They were really kind and helpful.

Favourite places outside Estallenches? Thre are many, but we always try to eat in the Celler sa Premsa in Palma. About a 5 minute walk eastwards from the Plaza Espanyol. The train journey up and over the mountains from Palma to Soller has to be a must. The Saturday morning market in Soller.

.

But, overall, you need never leave the village during your stay, but if you do venture away whether to climb, or follow one of the many mountain walks, or swim at Deia if it is too rough in Estallenches, or venture into Palma to visit a museum; coming back to the peace and calm of the Studio is a real treat.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased Julia enjoyed her stay in Estellencs and , like me and my family , appriciates what a special place it is. My parents bought property in Estellencs in the early 1950s and now our third generation love coming back here for their holidays . We did not have a car until 1958 so relied on the once daily bus to come and go to Palma which was what nearly everyone in the village also had to do. I was told by the stall holders in the Market that they do indeed come every Friday throughout the year.

Nadia Watkin's Estellencs Studio

  • 5 of 5

So often when a couple are looking for self-catering holiday accommodation, the internet comes up with 'sleeps 14' or something similar! Nadia Watkins, in Estellencs, has some superb smaller scale properties for two people. Her Studio is simply and charmingly furnished and is surprisingly spacious. The kitchen and bathroom are genuinely 'mod-con' and the super-sized bed is really comfortable.

There is a spacious and secluded sun terrace. Parking for those with hire cars is free and just along the road. There are good bus links to Palma and other centres.

This fine property is set in the very photogenic village of Estellencs, in North West Mallorca, where the mountains plunge into the Mediterranean. Thr road and the village cling to the mountainside and the views are really amazing!

The village has the usual amenities including some fine restaurants especially the 'Montimar', which specializes in the finest of Mallorcan produce and cuisine.

The local beach is pebbles and rocks. This is great for swimming as the water is totally clear. There is a great beach bar!

The property is very well maintained and is always spotless when we have arrived. We have on several occasions met Mrs. Watkins and her family while all of us were staying in Estellencs and we have found all of them friendly, helpful and most welcoming.

Location

From the Owner

This Studio on the 1st floor is very airy and large , 40 sq. metres.With a very neat galley kitchen.The terrace has a table and chairs and totally private. There is a large cupboard for clothes and belongings. The large french windows open up and you look up towards the church and olive covered hills

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : at 36 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : there are 4 in the village . Some not open all yea at 50 Metres Nearest Ferry : at 32 Kilometres Nearest Train : at 32 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : at 18 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : closed December and January at 60 Metres Nearest Beach : at 1 Kilometres Car: recommended

Estellencs is a beautiful unspoilt Majorca village. About 200 people live in the village all year round .In Summer the number is increased by visitors and holiday makers but it still remains a peaceful haven away from the rowdy tourist resorts.

The village nestles in a valley surrounded by olive and pine tree covered hills. On the South East side there is a tall peak of the Tramuntana mountains, Es Puix. On the North West side the view opens towards the Mediterranean where the sunsets are often spectacular, and on the mainly clear nights the star studded sky feels very close.

There are a couple of restaurants , a pizzeria and a couple of bars which also serve food (not all of these are open in Winter)There is also a shop which provides basics such as bread and milk.

Either by bus or hire car you can go on wonderful walks or visit the attractive stone villages along the coast. There is Valldemosa where Chopin and George Sands spent a cold and wet winter. Further along ,Deya is the village where the poet Robert Grave lived and is buried in the cemetry next to the hill top church.

A day spent in Palma is most interesting , either visiting the Cathedral and old city or to shop or sit in bars watching the world go by.

From Palma you can take the old train ( Plaza Espana ) to Soller and go on in the little tram down to Soller Port. This

makes a good day out for all ages.

But many guests like just to stay in the peace of Estellencs and going no further than the little pebbly beach , the restaurant and Vallhermose for a sundowner !

Estellencs is an excellent place from where to explore this beautiful coast and its villages such as Deya and to visit the beaches on the south coast . It is a 45 min drive to visit the attractive old quarter of Palma .

Other Activities: Golf courses at Bendinat and son Vida are about 28 and 35 km away
