Named after the two lofty palms by the pool in the garden, Las Palmeras is perfect for those seeking peace and quiet. Set in immaculate gardens, with large lawns, an olive grove and borders full of indigenous shrubs and plants, the sense of tranquillity and space on this private estate immediately sets one onto relax mode. The villa is surrounded by fields and woodland and has far reaching views up to the Tramantuna mountains and the Puig de Maria monastery, but is in an easy location from which to explore everything that this part of Mallorca has to offer. Next to Can Totxa, it can be booked together. It is traditionally built and beautifully styled and furnished, both inside and out, often making it difficult to leave the gated grounds.
The focus at Las Palmeras is most definitely the outside. Wide terraces with comfortable sofas and a hanging day bed, look out over the pool, gardens and views beyond. Children love the space and the nanny will take them on nature walks around the estate, exploring the native flora and fauna. The pool is a good distance from the terrace and its length makes it ideal for morning laps, whilst the shallow steps down are perfect for our youngest guests.
Inside, the styling is faultless. White interiors and furnishings are a perfect contrast to the warm outside. The open plan living and dining area and separate TV room which also doubles as the playroom, all lead out onto the terraces at the front of the villa. Three of the four rooms are on the first floor, with a twin room on the ground floor. The master bedroom is beautifully simple with a four poster bed facing French doors and a large balcony. The two other rooms both have their own bathrooms and are cool and elegantly styled.
Las Palmeras is popular with families of all ages, both for the space and gardens, and for its location, close to Pollenca. This charming and unspoilt town is easy to wander round, or to sit and enjoy a drink at one of the many terrace cafés. Sightseeing includes climbing the Calvari steps for a great view over the old Mallorcan architecture and surrounding countryside, or if you're really energetic, walking up to the monastery at Puig de Maria. There's a great choice for eating on the chef's night off, so just aks for a recommendation whether you'd like simple tapas or a full blown gastronomic affair. Keen shoppers will be not be disappointed with the choice, from pottery shops to individual boutiques and galleries. The beach at Puerto Pollenca is fifteen minutes by car, where the water is shallow and inviting, and the local sand sculptors take sand castles to another level.
All four bedrooms at Las Palmeras are beautifully styled and fresh with simple white furniture. The master bedroom, with a four poster bed, is the most spacious, taking up the whole of one side of the first floor, and with its own balcony looking out over the garden. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, and the fourth is on the ground floor, all of which are also en-suite.
