Vacation Rental Description
This modern, first floor spacious apartment is fully furnished in a new, bright and contemporary style. There is a living room and master bedroom balcony that overlooks the village rooftops. There are only six apartments in this quiet, four year old development, but the best feature for this particular apartment is access to a large private roof terrace which is has its own outdoor furniture for those relaxing evenings with cool breezes. There is a great tapas restaurant, named 'Es Moli' at the end of our street, and there is also a good 'friendly' Indian Restaurant around the corner.
Additionally, the apartment is only a short ten minute stroll away from the centre of the lovely town of Santanyi, which has a twice weekly market. It also boasts a wide selection of charming and diverse restaurants, bars, galleries and boutiques. A ten minute drive will take you to a selection of local beaches, or if you prefer the golf course. Santanyi is a lively, hospitable town all year round and provides an excellent base from which to explore the "real" Mallorca.
The town itself is surprisingly self-contained, and easily navigated by foot for all your needs. It allows you to escape the soullessness of shopping in modern retail parks, with its hyper and supermarkets by re-discovering the magic of ruminating through open markets. The ethnic sounds and smells of bakeries, outdoor cafes and tapas bars provide refreshingly welcome distractions. There is a feast of colour and curiosity to the eye with craft and ceramic workshops, as well as art galleries and trendy boutiques all melded into traditional Mallorcan-style streets, pedestrianised areas and alleyways. However, there is a more conventional supermarket near the ring road should you need one. In the summer months, there are always live music events arranged during a weekend including, folk, popular, jazz and classical styles in Santanyi's plaza - free of charge!
