'Privileged' is the only way to describe this splendid property: privileged in terms of style, décor and its excellent facilities but, perhaps most of all, privileged in terms of location. Tucked into pretty countryside on the outskirts of Cala d'Or, Sa Marina sits in private grounds of nearly nine acres and is just a few hundred metres walk from two of the prettiest cove beaches to be found on the east coast. A long time favourite with Vintage Travel guests for its gently shelving, family friendly sands, Cala Sa Nau is many people's idea of the idyllic Mediterranean cove, however its lesser known, but no less attractive near neighbour, Cala Mitjana, which can be accessed only on foot or by boat certainly must not be overlooked. Each of these beaches is easily reached via nearby country paths.

As befits such a unique location, Sa Marina's local owners have designed, furnished and equipped their property with care and attention to detail. The house is generously proportioned and easy to live in, with a welcoming feel and rooms that are light and airy. The good size kitchen has a farmhouse style, feature fireplace and each of the six bedrooms has its own en suite bath or shower room boasting an individual colour scheme enhanced  by tastefully chosen local ceramics.

A spacious exterior suite (conveniently situated off the covered kitchen terrace at the side of the house) makes a wonderful addition to facilities and enhances privacy options for larger families or groups of friends looking to enjoy a holiday together. Offering a double bed, en suite shower room, air conditioning and a fridge, both the décor and furnishings in this comfortable, welcoming space fully reflect the established high standards of the main house alongside.

Extensive sun terraces surround the impressive private pool which boasts family friendly Roman steps and a shallow, circular pool incorporated into one end that younger party members in particular are sure to enjoy.

From the first floor terraces there are far reaching sea and country views. On one side the sparkling, azure Mediterranean falls away towards the distant horizon while, on the other, a broad rural panorama criss crossed by picturesque low stone walls encompassing wild shrubs and fields of citrus, olive and carob trees stretches across to the village of S'Horta and beyond to the hilltop monastery of San Salvador near Felanitx.

While this location is undoubtedly rural, all amenities can be found within a 10-15 minute drive at either Cala Figuera, Cala d'Or or the village of S'Horta. You are also very well placed for exploring many of the most interesting towns, villages and coves of south-east Mallorca. The capital, Palma, can be reached in under an hour and several local restaurants are easily found nearby although, dare we suggest that with such a splendid property and position at your disposal, you are sure to find leaving Sa Marina particularly difficult!

Air conditioning usage is on a timer (12 hours per day).

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Sa Marina

Sunday Market in Felanitx

There is a lively bustling market in Felanitx on Sunday morning where the streets are lined with stalls selling local produce, fresh fruit and vegetables. There are some good tapas bars in Felanitx square, too.

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.

Palma, an interesting and beautiful capital city

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

Sant Salvador Monastery and sunset

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 witness a most beautiful sunset.

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.

Santanyi market days

On Wednesday and Saturday mornings the local market is held in Santanyi. The streets are lined with a variety of stalls and it is great to be able to stock up with fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses and local produce.

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.

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.

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.

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 nearby are the Caves of Hams, as well as an Aquarium. Further north, at Canyamel, are the Caves of Artà which are not quite so commercial. Visits are usually on the hour.

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

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.

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.

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.

Waterparks and Marineland

For those who enjoy waterparks, try Aqualand at S'Arenal - it can get crowded and best to take a picnic! Marineland in Costa den Blanes has wonderful dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows.

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.

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 from the Felanitx-Cas Concos road. Magnificent views over the coastline from the top.

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 Alcùdia.

From the house to Cala Mitjana or Cala Sa Nau

It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the Cala Mitjana beach through the shrubland, but even more convenient is the small sandy Cala Sa Nau beach with some amenities, good for snorkelling, walking over the rocks and only 600 metres down the road.
