Internationally renowned for history, atmosphere and breathtaking scenery, Valldemossa is one of Mallorca's most iconic towns and a location where few properties of this quality and type become available for rental. Situated in a select residential area, close to the town centre, Villa Valldemossa is a recently built town house offering that prized combination of comfortable, well-appointed accommodation that is within walking distance of all amenities (including several excellent restaurants) as well as one of the island's most celebrated landmarks.

Tastefully decorated and furnished with style, this fine property is more than a match for the expectations such a privileged location might engender.

Seekers of home comforts should not be disappointed with the design, décor or standard of equipment offered. All of the rooms are comfortable, bright and airy with most having at least one pair of French doors through which the green-tiled roof and soaring campanile of the famous Carthusian Monastery (La Cartuja) can be admired across the townscape in the near distance.

Externally the sun terrace has both open and shaded sections and it is pleasing to see a good size private pool - something not always possible in townhouses or, indeed, locations such as this where space is so often at a premium.

Home to the composer Frédéric Chopin during winter 1838-39, La Cartuja hosts daily piano recitals of his work as well as bi-weekly folk dancing performances. Originally a royal residence, the buildings, gardens and views from the terraces are amongst the island's best.

Leaving the town, a twisting mountain road takes you down to the Port of Valldemossa (8km) with its pebble shoreline and two waterside eateries while Cala Deià (12km) has a sandy beach and another beachside restaurant. Equally close and essential places to visit for so many different reasons, the towns of Deià and Sóller have oodles of olde-worlde charm and unique situations beneath the soaring peaks of the Tramuntana Mountains. Those taking time to stroll the peaceful back streets will be rewarded with a glimpse of island life, atmosphere and architecture that has remained largely unchanged for generations.

Further afield, a breathtakingly scenic coastal road meanders northwards via Lluc to Pollença and south to the white sandy beaches of Andratx. The fascinating capital city of Palma with its tree lined boulevards, bustling port, exclusive yacht club and excellent shopping is only 18km away or it is just 10 minutes downhill to the car park at the University from where the efficient Metro service will whisk you directly into the centre of the capital in 15 minutes.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Villa Valldemossa

The prettiest village in Mallorca?

Stroll around the picturesque village of Fornalutx with its stone-clad houses - some say it's the prettiest village in Mallorca. Try the lemon meringue pie (home-made with real fresh lemons grown in the Sóller Valley) at Ca'n Antuné Restaurant.

Palma, an interesting and beautiful capital city

A short drive takes you to Palma, or you can catch the underground from the University - Palma has an abundance of shops and interesting historic buildings such as the Cathedral, Almudaina Palace and Bellver Castle. There are also several art museums including the Krekovic and Miró museums.

Simulated Battle of the Moors and Christians...

....This takes place on the 2nd Monday in May. The townsfolk of Sóller dress up to celebrate part of their history and victory over the pirates. A colourful and merry festival that is worth watching.

Spectacular scenery over the mountains

Drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads via Deià, Sóller and Lluc as far as Pollença, enjoying the scenery including the two reservoirs, Gorg Blau and Cúber, on the way.

Valldemossa

Enjoy strolling around the back streets of this beautiful town and a visit to La Cartuja is a must. Chopin spent a winter living in the Carthusian Monastery - a very interesting monastery with its old pharmacy and lovely views over the valley.

The nearest coves

The nearest coves are at Port de Valldemossa, a small fishing port with a couple of good restaurants, Es Port des Canonge and the small cove at Cala Deià which is 12 kms away.

Alfàbia and Sóller Botanical Gardens

Sóller houses the Balearic Museum of Natural Scienes offering exhibitions related to Mallorca’s zoology, geology and botany, as well as a botanic garden. And on the Sóller to Palma road, just through the tunnel, are the Alfàbia Gardens which are worth a visit (closed on Sunday).

For those who enjoy golf

Within easy reach of Valldemossa are several golf courses including Son Termens which is only 10 kms away or Son Vida a little further afield.

Market days

There are markets on every day in Mallorca: The bustling market in Valldemossa on a Sunday morning is full of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as is the Saturday morning market in Sóller. Sineu market on Wednesday is the only market which still sells livestock including goats, sheep, ducks and rabbits. At the smaller square by the church you will find the locally produced fresh fruit and vegetables.

The romantic home of the Archduke Luis Salvador

Son Marroig, now a museum, was once the home of Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria who loved the Balearic Islands so much, he wrote a famous book about the islands. It is on the road between Valldemossa and Deià.

Vineyards and local wine

There are several vineyards worth visiting, the closest ones are in Santa Maria and Esporles. At Bodegues Macia Batle in Santa Maria and the famous Bodegues José L. Ferrer, you can visit and try their wines. No visits during the grape harvest in September although Binissalem does have the wine festival which is worth joining in.

An historic stately mansion

In Esporles you can visit La Granja, a large historical mansion with gardens, fountains, ancient trees and plants, wild and domestic animals, where you can also see a demonstration of ancient handicrafts, tools and machinery and taste the Mallorcan specialities such as jams, cheese, fig cake, sobrassada and moscatel.

Discover Deià

Deià is the next town along this beautiful coastline heading northwards. This well-known village is neatly set in the hillside with spectacular views out to sea. Famous people have made this their haven including Michael Douglas and Robert Graves. Robert Graves’s house, Ca N’Alluny, which is less than a kilometre from Deià, has been converted into a museum and is open to the public. (Parking can be difficult in Deià.)

Nearby Sóller with its famous train

Spend time discovering the beauties of Sóller and the Port of Sóller - just sitting in the main square watching the world go by, taking the old-fashioned open air tram ride through the orange groves from Port de Sóller to Sóller or the train ride through the mountains from Sóller to Palma.

Nature Park at Santa Eugènia

The Nature Park at Santa Eugènia is an ideal way to spend a morning with children visiting the small zoo where they also help wounded animals and birds and participate in conserving local fauna which is in danger of extinction.

Palma Aquarium

Experience one of the greatest aquariums in the world, discover the secrets of the underwater world from the shallow coral reefs to the mysterious deep blue, be surprised by the richness of the Mediterranean, the dazzling coral reefs and colourful fish that make this subaquatic oasis so spectacular. Discover a world stalked by sharks and rays and follow the misty river paths while reaching out to the water falls as you explore the exotic jungle.

Waterparks and Marineland

There are several waterparks in Mallorca - in Port d'Alcudia, S'Arenal and Magalluf. Marineland which has excellent dophin, sea lion show and parrot shows is on the road to Palma Nova at Costa den Blanes.

Scenic drive to the north east

Going further afield in a north-easterly direction, drive through the villages and typical Mallorcan countryside towards Son Serra de Marina, and when you reach the main Ca'n Picafort to Artà road, turn right towards Artà where one of the local trades is basket making. Find a country lane to the Hermitage of Betlem - enjoy the views overlooking Colònia de Sant Pere in the Bay of Alcúdia. Go back along the same lane to Artà and then on to Capdepera to see the castle.

Caves at Campanet, Canyamel and Porto Cristo

The Caves of Campanet, discovered by a shepherd about 100 years ago are worth a visit to see the magnificent stalagmites and stalactites. These caves are not too commercialised and visits are on the hour. For Mallorca's most impressive caves, then travel over to the east coast and visit the Caves of Drach, Hams or Artà at Canyamel.

Boat trips

To be able to admire the rugged coastline from the sea, there are boat trips from Sóller to Sa Calobra and also in the south east from Sant Elm to the small nature reserve island of Sa Dragonera.
