Perks for the Parents

This charming, rustic Casa has been lovingly refurbished, retaining its centuries-old stone farmhouse character but refreshing it with stylish modern touches that provide comfort and luxury in a truly scenic setting. It sleeps 10+2. Ideal for those seeking peace and relaxation, the Casa is a rural hideaway, nestled on its own estate amongst lush green farmland away from touristy crowds but only a short drive to the restaurants, bars and shops/markets of Petra - its local town - and larger Manacor. There’s lots on offer to keep adults occupied at home however, with a large outdoor pool with sun terrace, spacious courtyard with a brick barbecue and plenty of shaded alfresco dining, and chic relaxation areas dotted with olive, palm and lemon trees. Inside there are plenty of roomy living spaces and secluded reading nooks to enjoy some quiet downtime. Separate from the Casa, there’s garden ensuite bedroom and garden apartment/studio offering enhanced privacy options for large families or 2 family groups. The beautiful outdoor pool is a real gem; larger than average, it caters for keen swimmers as well as those looking to relax in its cooling water whilst soaking in the incredible view.

Why Kids Love it

There is plenty on offer for kids at this spacious Casa, with large gardens, roomy inside hangouts, accommodation mainly on one floor and enough entertainment to keep everyone happy.

The villa comes with multiple kitchen areas both indoor and outdoor, as well as a brick style barbecue making it ideal for kids who enjoy helping out with the cooking. Nearby Petra has a weekly market perfect for picking up local produce.

Style Notes

Elegant rustic. A beautifully modernised stone farmhouse that blends traditional features and warm natural woods with white washed walls and colorful furnishings to create a charming homely space with country-estate decadence. The main house marries hand picked antique pieces with beautiful fabrics and glamourous touches. Chandeliers and sleek, modern lighting add sophistication to evening soirees while chic outdoor furniture create stylish daytime hangouts amongst the lush, Mediterranean gardens. The views have to be seen to be believed. We love traditional features such as the bread oven/brick barbecue and feature stone walls as well as the thoughtfully landscaped terraces culminating in the stunning outdoor pool - the perfect place to relax and take in the stunning countryside vista.

Mallorca, Spain

Sandcastles and sunshine

One of Spain’s four sun-kissed Balearic islands, Mallorca is perfect for an easy family vacation. Popular beach resorts abound but there are hidden treasures too: golden stone hill towns, quiet beaches and olive groves, if you look hard enough. Take tots on the Palma-Soller vintage train, make sandcastles on the beach, and order kid-friendly tapas in beach bars. Pack sunscreen - you'll need it.
