Nestled amidst the rippling meadows of the Santa Margalida planes, with the occasional symbolic stone tower typical of the region, Sa Rota Nova is a contemporary design, country house, very popular with multi-generation groups due to the strategic layout of the interior and spacious exterior, that emanates a pastoral ambience. Such a rural setting is then complimented further by the typical environs of a sleepy Mallorquin village - Santa Margalida rewards those enjoying a pleasant stroll in the surrounding area, with a village plaza offering a sprinkling of tapas bars boasting good home cooking and a handful of local stores providing all the necessary items.

Families are also drawn to this beautiful property by its close proximity to the long stretches of fine sand of both Playa de Muro and Son Serra de Marina, what’s more its privileged central location means popular sights such as Pollença, Alcudia old quarters and the intriguing medieval villages of Inca and Sineu are just a short drive away, whilst the S’Albufera Natural Park is considered part of the neighbourhood.

Cool interiors are set out with open-plan living areas, a sleek modern kitchen, elegant, marble bathrooms and splashes of colour in each white-washed bedroom, ensure the ‘relaxation mode’ is a seamless one.
