Meandering along the quiet country lanes around Felanitx we were thrilled to discover this substantial, imposing farmhouse nestled at the end of its own gated driveway in delightful, sleepy surroundings. This impressive, four bedroomed property enjoys a hugely desirable location offering peace, privacy and the convenience of being close to excellent amenities as well as several of Mallorca’s most attractive beaches.

Comfortably furnished and attractively decorated, Es Vinyet offers a wealth of rustic charm... with a twenty first century twist!

The generously proportioned accommodation is airy, welcoming and flows easily over two floors. The entire first floor comprises a huge master bedroom with air conditioning, imposing ornamental fireplace, vaulted beamed ceiling, an eye-catching wall of fossilised stone, a king-sized bed, en suite bathroom and long shaded balcony overlooking the pool.

With good space for either a single bed or cot, an ante room directly off the sleeping area may be of particular appeal to families with a younger child/infant.

Three further air conditioned bedrooms and three bathrooms are found on the ground floor along with a spacious living/dining room and a country-style kitchen from where there is convenient access directly onto the covered dining terrace and barbecue area.

And there is also no lack of space externally with a good-size lawn surrounding the kidney-shaped private pool and mature fir, palm and olive trees dotted around the grounds to provide shady respite when temperatures hit their peak.

Notable for its emblematic row of windmills, the market town of Felanitx is just 3.5km away. Well-known for its ceramics and tasty ‘sobrasada de porc negra’ (spicy pork sausage), all amenities can be found here or in cosmopolitan Cala d’Or (18km). There are several popular country restaurants in the lanes leading to the coast while the waterfront cafes of Porto Colom (17km) serve some of the island’s freshest and tastiest seafood (the restaurant Sa Sinia reputedly a personal favourite of the former King of Spain, Juan Carlos I).

The nearby coastline has many unspoilt sandy beaches with Cala Sa Nau (18km), Cala Mondragó (19.2km), Cala Figuera (19.7km) and Cala Llombards (20.4km) being a few of our particular favourites. Cyclists have a very well-marked network of routes to discover and golfers the highly rated Club Vall d’Or which is just a 15 minute drive.

About 45 minutes away, the island capital, Palma, has so much to offer including a thriving port, the Castell de Bellver (Spain’s only circular castle), a vast Gothic cathedral, chic tree-lined boulevards, great shopping and excellent restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets.

Use of the air conditioning (12 hours per day) is included in the rental rate.
There is no charge for an additional (child) bed in the ante room if requested at time of booking.
