The outdoor living at La Paloma is its main appeal. Simply put, it is entirely possible to spend a whole week here without going beyond the gates, just soaking up the traditional Mallorcan lifestyle of chilling out under the covered terraces, taking a dip in the pool and when feeling energetic having a game of tennis. For younger guests, the slide into the pool is bound to give hours of fun as will the children's outdoor play area and indoor playroom.
The villa is built in a traditional Spanish hacienda style, with wide covered terraces interspersed with soft seating framing a lawned courtyard and pool beyond. The main part of the house consists of the kitchen and large openplan living area as well as the 'tower' bedrooms, a double and twin above both of which have en suite bathrooms. There are a further three bedrooms and shower rooms, all interlinked in one of the wings off the courtyard. The opposite wing is where the large covered outdoor kitchen, BBQ and dining area is situated. Throughout, the design and style is very traditional with solid wooden furniture, terracotta tiles and other typical Mallorcan touches.
Adults and children alike will love La Paloma The nanny takes our younger guests for adventure walks around the grounds - exploring the native flora and fauna, and tennis and swimming coaching can be arranged for any age of guest. The pool is a good size and is accessed via a low level gate. If you can tear yourself away, sporting types can hire road bikes and explore the local hills or take the ten minute drive to Pollenca, a beautiful town definitely worth exploring. Climb the Calvari steps for a great view over the old Mallorcan architecture and surrounding countryside, or 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.
There are five bedrooms and bathrooms in La Paloma. Two of the bedrooms are located in the tower of the main part of the house, a double and twin above both of which have ensuite bathrooms. Three further bedrooms are accessed via the outside courtyard in the wing. These three bedrooms are all interlinked - a double bedroom with a twin/single room either side all with ensuite shower rooms. The layout works really well for 2 families sharing but it is an unusual layout so please talk to one of our travel consultants who will be able to talk you through the layout in more detail. The bedrooms are all airconditioned.
