Sitting atop the low hill that overlooks the little farming town of S'Horta this wonderfully located house is one of our most popular Mallorcan properties. Eye-catchingly finished in warm sandstone Es Puig is privileged to marvellous sweeping views across the surrounding landscape to the Mediterranean, as well as inland to a magnificent range of rolling green hills. Pinewoods, too ensconce the house, which is both private and tranquil. The selection of secluded poolside patios as well as the magnificent, shaded upper terrace will prove an irresistible invitation to make the most of outdoor living... at its best.

Upon entering you are welcomed by an attractive, typically Mallorcan interior patio of potted plants. To one side is a light, spacious L-shaped living/dining room and open plan kitchen. The good-sized bathrooms are decorated with tasteful local ceramics whilst most of the broad, fitted bedrooms have direct access to terracing and those far-reaching sea or countryside views.

Unfolding stylishly over three floors with many singular touches, there is good space on offer and, of course, the wealth of external patios provides larger families or sharing parties with an opportunity for more individual peace and quiet if desired.

Some of the most picturesque sandy coves in Mallorca, the Val d'Or golf course and the respected restaurants at the fishing town of Portocolom are all within an 5-8km drive. You can walk downhill into S'Horta, an essentially Mallorcan country town with amenities that include a chemist, banks, local cafes, two good minimarkets, a tapas bar and a regular fresh produce market in front of the church.

One of several that dot the surrounding countryside, a country restaurant about 2km away is widely noted for offering a comprehensive range of traditional local dishes.

Families with younger children will be interested to know that a gate on the upper terrace plus another at the rear of the house can be closed preventing direct access down to the pool area.

Great Things to Do Near Es Puig

A day trip to Sóller by train

For adults and children alike, it's fun to take the old-fashioned train from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller. From there you can get a tram to the Port de Sóller through the orange groves and back to then enjoy sitting in the main square in Sóller and enjoy the atmosphere.

Sunday Market in Felanitx

The market in Felanitx on Sunday morning is a colourful, bustling event where you can buy your locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as souvenirs and presents.

Local beaches and coves

The east coast of Mallorca has several coves and beaches which are safe for children, and others that are fun for snorkelling. The most popular beaches are Cala Sa Nau, S'Amarador, Cala Mondragó, Cala Llombards and a little further away Es Trenc.

A boat trip to the Island of Cabrera

A National Park and Marine Reserve, this makes a wonderful day trip by boat to the Island of Cabrera, a small Balearic island off Mallorca's south east corner. Take a picnic or buy lunch on board. The boats leave quite early from Colònia de Sant Jordi - best to book. Tel 971 649 034

Palma, capital city

There are many interesting historical buildings to visit in Palma, including the Cathedral, Almudaina Palace, Bellver Castle, as well as museums and art galleries. Palma is an excellent shopping centre.

The famous Caves of Drach

The most spectacular caves on the island are the Caves of Drach in Portocristo, where one of the largest underground lakes is to be found. Also in the same area are the Caves of Hams. However, further north at Canyamel, are the Caves of Artà which are not quite so commercial. Visits are usually on the hour.

Sant Salvador Monastery

It is worth the drive to the top of the hill of Sant Salvador, near to Felanitx. As well as the monastery which has a museum, bar and restaurant, the views of the surrounding countryside are magnificent. On a clear day you can see the Island of Cabrera Nature Reserve, or even enjoy a beautiful sunset.

An evening stroll before dinner

The small fishing ports of Portocolom and Portopetro are congenial for a stroll around the quayside and a meal sitting on the terrace of one of the restaurants overlooking the picturesque harbours.There are also boat trips available during the day from these two harbours where you can appreciate the beauty of the east coastline.

An historic manor house

Els Calderers is between Sant Joan and Vilafranca - journey back in time and imagine how Mallorca was 200 years ago. This fine manor house and farm is one of the most representative mansions on Mallorca's flatland - you can also see home-made products.

Visit one of the local wineries

There are several wineries open to the public in Mallorca. Jaume Mesquida de Mallorca is in the street C/ de la Vileta 7 in Porreres, a family-run business founded in 1945 which produces wines of the Pla and Llevant areas.

A day trip to Valldemossa and Deià

The Carthusian Monastery at Valldemossa, where Chopin spent a winter, is worth a visit and a stroll round the quiet back streets of Valldemossa, too. Then carry on to the beautiful village of Deià, home to many famous people, writers, painters and musicians.

Flora and fauna at Es Salobrar

Es Salobrar, an area inland from Es Trenc beach, is one of the natural zones of great ecological value. Many varied birds and other animal life, as well as a wide variety of flora (including rush, tamarisk and sea fennel) are to be found here.

Visit a local cheese factory

Just outside Campos, on the road to Colònia de Sant Jordi, is a cheese factory, Formatges Burguera, a family-run business which is open to the public at certain times. In the area of Campos, you will also see a variety of colourful renovated windmills.

Glassworks and museum

There are 3 glassworks in Mallorca open to the public: Gordiola, established in 1719, is near Algaida on the Ma-15 near Exit 20 on the Manacor-Palma road; Lafiore is on the Palma-Valldemossa road; and Menestralia at Exit 35 on the Ma-13 near Campanet. You can watch craftsmen working, see the kilns, museum and shop.

In the direction of Ses Salines

Drive to the sleepy town of Ses Salines, stop and have a coffee in Manolo's bar, and then go on to Botanicactus where you can see about 1,000 species of plants covering an area of 150,000 sq.ms. Just outside Ses Salines you can also visit an ancient monument - Talayot.

Waterparks and Marineland

For those who enjoy waterparks, try Aqualand at S'Arenal - it can get crowded especially at weekends! Marineland is at Costa den Blanes and has wonderful dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows.

Explore the north-east of Mallorca

Spend a day visiting the towns of Artà, famous for its basket making, and Capdepera where there is an interesting old castle worth seeing. Also in the area is a small hermitage at Betlem, from which you can appreciate fantastic views towards Colònia de Sant Pere and the Bay of Alcúdia.

Visit a prehistoric settlement

There are several prehistoric settlements on the island. Near to Portocolom is the one known as Closos de Can Gaià, which has at least nine identifiable navetes, one of the most important best preserved in Mallorca

Walk to the Castell de Santueri

If you are keen walkers, it is possible to walk from the Puig de Sant Salvador to the ruined Castell de Santueri, an Arab fortress. Or you can drive up a narrow winding road off the Felanitx-Cas Concos road. Magnificent views over the coastline from the top.

Go for a short ride to S'Alqueria Blanca

S'Alqueria Blanca is a small nearby town with a good local bakery, tapas bar, restaurants and newsagents. Then drive up the hill to the Oratori de La Consolació, a small chapel at the top of the hill with sweeping views across the sea.
