If you’re looking for a spacious holiday house where you can enjoy barbecues, pool parties and country walks then you’ve come to the right place. Furnished with a combination of antiques, traditional fabrics and local tiles, not to mention a pool, terraces and spectacular views, this house just oozes character.
C’an Bassa Coll is an elegant farmhouse surrounded by acres of mature Mediterranean gardens and typical Mallorcan farmland characterised by small villages and fields of almond, olive and fruit trees enclosed by old dry stone walls. Sheep bells and birdsong are the soundtrack to daily life here, and the dramatic mountains of the Sierre Levante and the tiny monastery of the Consolacio form an impressive backdrop. Look south from the terrace to the Mediterranean, where two large sandy beaches await just 10 minutes away by car, or wander into the traditional hill village of Alqueria Blanca (population 800), with its charming village square, friendly bar, local shops and restaurants.
The house is set in the Mallorcan countryside, near the small traditional hilltop village of Alqueria Blanca. There is a brilliant range of restaurants within 10-15 minutes and there is also a good selection of eateries in the harbour village of Porto Petro or within the resort of Cala d'Or and the nearby marina. Alqueria Blanca is home to the Italian 'Bacco' restaurant and the popular 'Bar Nou', and you could also walk to the nearby Campo Restaurant where children are welcome and you can dine outside on the terrace. The beaches at Cala Mondrago (a 10 minute drive) and Cala Sanau both slope gradually into the sea and offer beach bars, sunbeds and fixed beach umbrellas for daily hire. For the golfers, there are several excellent golf courses to choose from within a short drive.
Fly to Palma airport. As public transport is limited in Mallorca, a hire car is essential.
