Quintessentially Mallorcan in style, character and location, this gorgeous farmhouse sits in the famously scenic and hugely desirable Val d’en March looking out across a magnificent vista of tree-lined valley edged by dramatic foothills. Within easy reach of delightful sandy beaches, excellent amenities and many first-class restaurants this wonderful country retreat is perfectly suited to peaceful relaxation.

Sympathetically and thoughtfully refurbished along traditional lines, there is so much to enjoy in the property’s design and décor.

Dating from 1883, character features abound; the cobbled front patio, patterned floor tiles, sturdy wooden beams and wealth of exposed stonework all serve as attractive reminders of the property’s farming heyday while thick whitewashed walls, their surface undulated by age, help to keep the interior agreeably cool when summer temperatures are at their height.

Achieving an artful balance between old and new, the interior of Camp d’Avall has been very tastefully updated whilst fully respecting the building’s rustic origins.

Furnishings are an eye-catching fusion of antique and present day pieces, the bedrooms are comfortably appointed and individually air conditioned, bathrooms are fresh and bright. A contemporary room that retains a tangible rural charm, keen cooks will appreciate the well equipped kitchen with its modern appliances, ample workspace and convivial breakfast bar.

Decorative touches include attractive local fabrics, an eclectic selection of artwork consisting of both modern and vintage prints as well as a hand-painted, decagon-shaped sundial on the front façade.  Revitalised to serve ornamental instead of agricultural purpose, various items of antique farming memorabilia (including a substantial hardwood dining table fashioned from an old barn door) adorn both the interior and exterior.

The surrounding views are remarkable! From most windows and, in particular from the pool terrace and grounds, there is a quite marvellous pastoral landscape to be enjoyed, a scenic panorama to which even our best efforts at capturing in these accompanying photographs cannot do justice.

Visitors may well wish for nothing more than to remain sequestered in this restful oasis; however plenty of appealing distractions lie close at hand. The excellent restaurants and amenities in the old Roman town of Pollença are just 6km away, the sandy cove beaches of Cala Sant Vicenç as well as the long sweeping bay of Port de Pollença are both 12km with golfing, walking and biking a few of the many other pursuits readily available in the area.

All in all, we can proudly state that Camp d’Avall is one of the most characterful and typically Mallorcan properties we have the pleasure to offer.

Location of Camp d'Avall

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Camp d'Avall

Lluc is not just a monastery

Take the mountain road from Pollença to the Monastery at Lluc. Visit the museum and the chapel - you may be fortunate enough to hear the Blauets Choir singing. Make your way to the huge cross behind the monastery for the fabulous views out to sea.

Visit to a local vineyard

There are several vineyards in Mallorca where you can visit and try the wine - Vinyes Mortitx is on the road to Pollença-Lluc road at KM 10,9; Bodegues Macià Batle is at the entrance to Santa Maria on the main road towards Consell; and in Binissalem is the better-known Bodega José L. Ferrer. No visits during the grape harvest in September although the wine festival in Binissalem is worth joining in.

Go to the market!

Pollença market on Sunday morning is a colourful bustling event where you can buy your locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a few souvenirs and presents. Have a look inside the church which is very impressive.

The only water park in the north of Mallorca

is Hidropark in Alcúdia. Open 1st May to 30th October. www.hidroparkalcudia.com.

Cala San Vicente

This delightful spot has 4 sandy cove beaches where the waters are crystal clear and ideal for snorkelling. There are a good selection of beachside bars and restaurants where a cooling drink or a delightful meal of fresh fish can be enjoyed while overlooking the beach.

Explore the old town of Pollença

Stroll around the old town of Pollença. It's definitely worth making the effort to climb the 365 steps up to the Calvary church and browsing in the curious little shops before sitting down to relax with a drink and dinner in one of the many popular restaurants in the pedestrianised squares.

Formentor beach and lighthouse

A scenic drive will take you to Formentor Lighthouse - the road is quite narrow in places. At the top of the hill out of Port de Pollença, it is worth stopping at the viewpoint to see El Colomer rock. Although the beach at Formentor is not very large, it has clear shallow water ideal for children and adults alike, with some good waters for snorkelling. Go early, with a picnic.

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

If you would like to do some snorkelling in clear, deep water, go towards Alcúdia, turn off towards the La Victoria headland until you reach Mal Pas. Beside a fish restaurant serving lobster (choose your own), there is an excellent area off the rocks for snorkelling.

Beach at Port de Pollença

At Port de Pollença the beach is spacious, has all amenities, parking along the seafront, and if it gets too hot there is a little playground in a small wood for a respite from the sun.

Basket making, prehistoric buildings and a castle

Going further afield, drive through the resorts of Puerto Alcudia and Ca’n Picafort towards Arta – here in Arta one of the local trades is making baskets - then take a country lane to the hermitage of Betlem where the views overlook Colonia de San Pedro in the Bay of Alcudia. Back to Arta and if you are interested in prehistoric building, then visit the Poblat de Ses Païsses before carrying on to Capdepera to see the castle.

Visit Palma – by train

If you'd like to visit the capital, Palma, and are not keen on driving, then take the train from Sa Pobla. Palma is an excellent shopping centre and has many interesting historical buildings, museums and art galleries to visit.

Walk to the top of Puig de Maria

Just past the rooster roundabout on the road from Pollença to Palma on the left, is the start of the walk up to the top of Puig de Maria. It's best to go first thing in the morning wearing sensible shoes. Don't forget your camera and a bottle of water although there is a bar at the top. The views over the north coast are outstanding.

Sóller and its Port by train

The old-fashioned train ride through the mountains from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller and back, including the tram to the Port of Sóller through the orange groves and back, and just sitting in the church square in Sóller enjoying a drink and watching the world go by.

Go out in a boat

Boat trips from the local coves and ports can make a lovely day or half day out from Port de Pollença or Port d'Alcúdia going to Formentor or round the headlands.

Valldemossa and Deià

Take a drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including the two lake/reservoirs, and passing through several world renowned towns like Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous writers, painters and musicians. Also look out for the wild mountain goats on the way.

Go hire a bike!

Explore the area on 2 wheels. There are a variety of bicycle hire shops in Puerto Pollença, including Pro Cycle Hire. www.procyclehire.com. It’s a great way to see the splendours of this beautiful part of the Island.

Paella on the beach

Spend a day at the beach between Ca'n Picafort and the area east of Alcúdia, at Ses Casetes des Capellans, where you can enjoy a tasty paella or seafood dishes at one of the beach restaurants while enjoying the sea and sun on a long and sandy beach.

Old Roman town of Alcúdia

Tuesday market in Old Alcúdia is interesting and has a plentiful supply of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, then just stroll round the pedestrianised old Roman town where caper plants are growing out of the main massive thick stone walls surrounding the town. The local council offer a free guided tour around the historical centre of Alcúdia old town on Wednesdays and Fridays during the summer months.
