Lovely villa, but for us, the pool being deeper than advertised was a problem as we had small childr
Like · This is a lovely villa which is well presented and equipped and it has lovely views all round. An easy stroll into Mancor de la Val, which is quite small but has a bakers, general food store and small Spar type ‘supermarket’. It also has a handful of bars and restaurants. Sunday lunch with the locals at Cas Puput not to be missed! All the restaurants – from the café at the swimming pool to that in the Turixant hotel , work on the basis of set meals with just two choices for each course. We enjoyed everything we had – but be aware – Mallorcan cuisine includes a lot of liver and other offal! There was some music going on most evenings, but this is not a big tourist town. This suited us but it’s not for you if you want more ‘action’! Inca is not far away for bigger supermarkets and there is a market there on Thursdays.Owners very nice, though they did not speak much English. Dislike · The pool was a lot deeper at the shallow end than advertised and this caused some difficulty for us. The web site said it was 0.8m at the shallow end but it was in fact 1.35m. I am 5’3” (160cm) and I could only reach the bottom at the wall by the steps – then I was out of my depth – not what you want when you are looking after small children. I have emailed the agency that deals with the villa and they have said they will update the information. Also, although the AstroTurf area was great for running around on etc, the kids really have to have footwear on, as the turf gets very hot in the sun. It would have been better if the bathroom doors had locks on, especially as one is ‘en-suite’ to the single bedroom and the kitchen would benefit from the provision of some small bowls for eg olives or nuts.I had missed that electricity was extra here – and it was 50 Euros for the week.
