Mallorca has a Mediterranean climate and lovely sunny weather is highly likely from late May until late September. It can be very hot, especially in July and August.
To start planning your vacation to Villa Las Tortugas
Villa Las Tortugas sits in one of Mallorca's most beautiful areas. With 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside, it's a truly impressive luxury finca style villa, with villa manager and choice of private chef and nanny. Sleeps 12
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.

Evans - August 2018 (Guest)
Overall perfect, couldn't ask for more. The meals were way beyond our expectations, the amount and quality of the food was amazing , Ed was also lovely with the kids and spent time with them, above and beyond.
Kerri, our nanny, was lovely, she fitted in with our family like a glove, knowing when to be in the thick of things and when to take a back seat, wonderful! The kids also loved her!
Robinson - July 2018 (Guest)
Everything was easy from the transfer to the villa, to the welcome, the food & drinks & the childcare. Even on the
staff day off we were well prepared & looked after. The restaurant Violaine recommended was also excellent.
Both Ed and Violaine were exceptional. The food was outstanding and Violaine's knowledge of the area and the
effort she put into looking after us was fantastic. We really could not have asked for better. We were all very happy &
had a great Vacation.
Kennedy - July 2018 (Guest)
Ed's food was really delicious...better than the restaurant food we had on his night off!! Really varied and interesting
menus, he clearly loves what he does. Violaine was fantastic throughout our stay. Great attention to detail and
a wonderful hostess. She remembered all our preferences and her recommendations for restaurants/markets/beaches were spot on.
Our nanny Beth was great with our kids and they took to her immediately (usually our daughter is very bad with new
people!) She was very efficient with meals and bathtimes too, and there were stacks of activities to keep them
occupied. The playroom in the villa was very well stocked too.
Penrose - June 2018 (Guest)
Ed was fabulous, the food was delicious, he catered for varied dietary requirements (of which there were many) and always served up delicious healthy food. Top notch and lovely and friendly too.
Being surrounded by native tortoises was wonderfully special and seeing them wander around, nibble on the lawn and shower under the sprinklers is something we will never forget! The villa team were fab overall. Violaine was an awesome host and ensured the whole experience was top notch. She's fantastic at her job and made the vacation amazing. She went out her way to ensure we were happy. Thank you!
