A wonderful, character property that celebrates its ancient lumpy walls, its beams and exposed stone, perfect arches and quiet courtyard where you can truly escape and relax surrounded by the jagged peaks of the mountains. Originally one of the old stables, Bernadino is a secluded corner of a centuries old farm stead where the olives are still cultivated and harvested and goats are penned. It's a wonderful spot with scenery that is almost alpine and if you like ancient character then you’ll love the villa too, I’m a country boy at heart and it’s one of my favourites. Old and characterful it may be but the facilities are modern and sleek and it has all the comfort and convenience one expects on holiday, it just offers so much more.
Away from it all you may be but Pollensa old town is within a 10 minute drive with all the shops, bars and restaurants you’ll need, the big supermarkets are right by the main road to the port and there’s a huge weekend market that takes over the whole town. The beaches of Cala San Vicenc and the Port are just another easy 10 minutes drive past the old town along a straight new road to the port and a winding drive to Cala san Vicenc.

Twin bedroom with deliciously lumpy walls and a lovely bed head, air con, wardrobe and en suite shower room.
Sleek, white kitchen that’s very well equipped, it has a beautiful old dresser and doors to the courtyard.. Formal dining area and very attractive lounge with lovely views through glass doors to the courtyard. Push back the barn door and enjoy the outdoor dining terrace, where you’ll spend so much time. Architecturally pleasing it also has a dining table shaded with a large parasol close to the charcoal barbecue, handily close to the kitchen.
The ancient water course steaming along the top of the wall dates back to Roman times and you step over another part of it as you walk towards the gardens and beautiful swimming pool, soak up the sun and marvel at the mountain views in peace. There’s also a little children’s playground with swings and such and do enjoy the oranges when they’re ripe.
