Villa Las Tortugas translates as Villa Tortoise, named after the native wild tortoises that you spot enjoying the sunshine throughout the gardens. Tortoises are a protected species in Mallorca and you will love seeing these relaxed locals potter about their day particularly after any rains. The villa is huge; you walk through the front door to be greeted by a spacious open-plan area with high ceilings and loads of natural light beaming through the large centerpiece window that frames the imperial double staircase. There’s space for children downstairs to play games and get creative out of the sun in the TV area and the small playroom. On the first floor, you will find four en-suite bedrooms. There are two good sized master double bedrooms with doors out onto the upstairs terrace on either end of the landing and in the middle two twin/double bedrooms with their own shower rooms. Two further bedrooms, again with their own showers, are together on the ground floor, which makes this villa ideal for up to three families sharing.
Walking out onto the outside terrace through the French doors there is a lovely covered outside dining area overlooking the surrounding unspoiled countryside, a perfect setting to enjoy the delicious food prepared by your Scott Dunn chef. A stone pathway then leads from the villa terrace down to the pool area that includes a lovely covered chill out seating area and lots of space for relaxing. The whole pool area is lined with typical Mediterranean shrubs and trees giving you complete privacy. For those that would like to explore, the villa is set within a large plot of 170,000 sqm, the majority of which is untouched countryside and there are several pathways so you can go and explore these natural surroundings.
Las Tortugas is in a great location for discovering the north of Mallorca. The famous town of Arta with its lovely selection of restaurants, shops and bars is approximately 16km away. Tuesdays is market day in Arta and definitely worth a visit for the fantastic range of local arts, crafts and jewelry of the region as well as seasonal fruits, vegetables and other typical local produce and specialties. Within 20 minutes is the fantastic sandy beach at Son Serra de Marina ideal for a great day out, it is still relatively untouched with clear waters and a wide dune beach ideal for surfers and kite surfers. For something calmer, the little ‘calas’ (coves) are worth exploring. The real gems are not signposted.
Without doubt, a vacation at Las Tortugas provides the best of everything – exemplary food and service provided by your Scott Dunn chef and host and plenty of space for everyone to relax both inside and out. All of this can be enjoyed in a picturesque unspoiled and tranquil setting but within easy reach of local beaches and villages or towns.
