The sense of space, both inside and outside at Can Totxa is possibly the reason why many of our guests never leave its boundaries during their entire stay, and is surely its main appeal. Simply put, it is entirely possible to spend a whole week here without going beyond the gates, just soaking up the views out over the pool and gardens to the fields, woodlands and mountains beyond. Part of the Can Toxta estate, and next door to Las Palmeras (which can be taken together), the gardens are full of native plants - olive, lemon and fig trees, palms, lavender, where guests are promised total seclusion and privacy.
Can Totxa is built in the traditional Mallorca farmhouse style, with wide terraces and a large balcony. Inside, the design is sleek, modern and minimalist, whilst not taking anything from the character. The large L-shaped open plan living, dining area and kitchen all lead out on the terrace, meaning you can see what your chef is creating for you later. All the rooms are bright and airy and the bedrooms are exceptionally spacious. There's no need to draw straws over the master bedroom, as both the doubles upstairs are enormous with half their space given over to luxurious open plan bathrooms, one of which has a rainforest shower right in the middle. The TV room downstairs doubles as the playroom, and is full of toys and games for all ages.
Adults and children alike love Can Totxa. The nanny takes our younger guests for adventure walks around the grounds and further a field on the large estate - exploring the native flora and fauna, and tennis and swimming coaching can be arranged for any age of guest. The pool is a good length for laps, whilst the really sporting types can hire road bikes and explore the local hills. The villa is just a five minute drive from Pollenca, a beautiful town definitely worth exploring. Climb the Calvari steps for a great view over the old Mallorcan architecture and surrounding countryside, or if you're really energetic, walk up to the monastery at Puig de Maria. Pollenca is full of character and a great choice to eat on the chef's night off. There are plenty of recommendations from simple tapas to more full blown gastronomic affairs, and keen shoppers will be not be disappointed with the choice.
Can Totxa has a large master bedroom with an enormous wet room, an equally large double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom with an extra bed with en-suite shower room, and a twin bedroom with separate bathroom on the ground floor. Downstairs features an open plan kitchen/dining/living area and separate children's playroom/TV room.
