La Samantina enjoys one of the most beautiful and dramatic settings in Mallorca, in the Vall de March region. An exceptionally beautiful villa built in the traditional local style, it makes the most of the extensive views of the valley and Tramantuna mountains, at the same time as being close to the old town of Pollenca and some of the island's finest beaches. It's perfect for guests who love to get away from it all, and offers a complete retreat from everyday life. The grounds in which it is set are enormous, with fields to the back and gardens all the way round, giving an idyllic sense of seclusion and privacy.
Life at La Samantina is designed be spent outside, either by the large pool on one of the numerous day beds, on the wide terrace. The pool has gentle steps into it and enjoys quite possibly, some of the best views anywhere. The interiors are no less impressive and are simply but elegantly and luxuriously furnished. The ground floor is largely open plan with French doors leading out to the garden and pool. Three of the bedrooms and the children's playroom are on this floor, with the further three bedrooms on the first floor, all with wide balconies looking over the gardens, pool and mountains. Contemporary furnishings, four poster beds in some and big bathrooms, they are all comfortably furnished and spacious.
Guests who'd like to explore further, have a huge choice on offer. The unspoiled town of Pollenca deserves a visit or two, with its narrow streets, bustling squares, colorful market, restaurants and tapas bars. There's definitely no shortage of restaurants to choose from on your chef's night off. There are several good beaches close by, with the long sandy stretch at Formentor being perfect for those who prefer to escape the crowds. Pollenca beach is nearly 10km long, with fine white sand and crystal clear waters. There are plenty of watersports opportunities round this coastline, and keen cyclists will want to tackle the challenging mountain terrain - popular with professional teams. Or even if you just want to walk in the mountains, you'll find some spectacular trails and the lovely vineyard at Mortitx.
