Peaceful and pastoral, Sa Figuera invites visitors to discover Mallorca as it always has been. Calming environs dotted only with a sprinkling of farmhouses, views over the fields towards the iconic hilltop monastery of San Salvador and within easy distance of some of Mallorca’s most attractive East coast beaches, this stone clad hideaway sits amidst leafy country lanes and extensive meadows on the Son Mesquida plain, just outside the lively market town of Felanitx.

A large wooden entrance door leads directly into the heart of the house, the open plan living/dining room which has a kitchen on one side, a substantial wood burner as focal point on the other and two sets of French windows providing convenient access onto the garden and covered dining terrace.
 
Enhancing the country charm you will find vaulted white ceilings in the principal rooms, terracotta tiled flooring and a simple décor of soothing pastel shades. Comfortable and unfussy in equal measure, the property furnishings include everything needed for easy summer living… and create the irresistible allure of deep relaxation in this tranquil, rural niche.
 
Outside, a backdrop of colourful bougainvillea creeps across the wall between the in-built barbecue and additional covered terrace where a raised bar counter and stools are the ideal spot for a cooling drink in the shade whilst keeping an eye on younger (or more active!) family members enjoying the private pool or spacious lawn.
 
All amenities and a wide choice of local gastronomy await in nearby Felanitx (3km) with a further range of national and international cuisine options found in abundance just a little further afield in coastal towns such as Portocolom (particularly noted for seafood) and cosmopolitan Cala d’Or, both of which are around a 20 minute drive.
 
Numerous craggy calas and picturesque sandy coves are easily found all along the indented coastline and do seek out the world famous Dragon Caves (Cuevas del Drach) at Porto Cristo (24km) which are an enchanting visit for all ages. Undoubtedly Sa Figuera makes a wonderful base from which to explore a beautiful corner of this diverse island.
