This lovely faded terracotta finca is a private home rather than a commercial rental, and conveys a real sense of homely comfort as a result. It nestles discreetly beneath the pine-clad foothills of the Tramuntana mountains, with classic countryside views all around. The grounds are impeccably kept (the owners’ pride and joy), and much larger than the average for a two bedroom villa. Inside, the house is equally generously proportioned, with the added benefit of an extra sitting which can also be used as an office for anyone who needs to work or study in peace. The large swimming pool is a great attraction for all ages here, but our personal highlight is the proper summer kitchen, equipped with everything you need for long sunny lunches with the family or a romantic evening in for two. The dining terrace overlooks the pool, which looks even prettier at night when the palm trees cast long shadows and the sky turns a beautiful golden pink with the promise of another gorgeous day to follow. Villa Angela enjoys a quiet countryside location, within easy reach of the traditional market town of Pollença, where you can find plenty of restaurants and a reassuring slice of local life if you take time to linger on the main square or visit the weekly market. The beach at Puerto Pollença is a 15 minute drive.
