"Restored Finca with Mediterranean courtyard"
Taking the Moscari road out of Campanet, the road narrows briefly as it circumnavigates a bend after a little over 1 km and almost hidden in the wall, the double gates of Villa Campanet Vell open into a driveway that sweeps around to the courtyard entrance and inspiring views of the Tramuntana Mountains. This courtyard, an enchanting introduction to the centuries old Finca is bordered on three sides by covered outbuildings and the Finca itself. A tall, neatly clipped hedge almost completes the fourth side, making for total privacy and this erstwhile working farm yard has been transformed into a pretty garden of rooms, planted with flowering shrubs and trees, with a beautifully tiled roman step entry pool (depth 0.9m - 2.10m), surrounded by paved terraces.
The open plan living room of the Finca itself opens directly from the courtyard, where a sofa and chairs are arranged around a fireplace and brightly whitewashed walls are hung with a host of artefacts from days gone by. A dining table and chairs are close to the doorway to the farmhouse kitchen, well equipped with gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer and micro-wave with, at the far end, a second door returning to the courtyard and a covered terrace, furnished for outside dining and with a purpose built barbecue close by. Just across the courtyard garden is a barn now used for drying washing out of the sun and there is a washing machine in a separate building.
A tiled hallway leads from the living area to a twin bedroom on the ground floor, with window to the rear courtyard, and a double bedroom with antique furnishings, which faces the road. There is also a full bathroom on this floor. A door leads to the aforementioned small courtyard with gated steps down to the road and a gate to the neighbouring villa, S’Alqueria, ideal for two families who would like to holiday close to each other, whilst remaining totally private.
Back inside, a traditionally tiled stairway leads a twin bedroom, where thick walls and a tiny window with views towards the mountains help keep the temperatures down inside when temperatures rise outdoors. There is also a shower room on the first floor.
In the warm Mallorcan summer, the courtyard becomes the main living space and various rooms have been formed to suit differing moods, with shady corners, sunbathing terraces and a couple of seats in the cool old entrance barn which catches the occasional breeze and makes this an appealing spot to disappear to, with a good book.
As this lovely old Finca has its back turned to the little used Moscari Road, the occasional car will be heard.

Hi, our names are Diane (rear left) Paul (rear right) Chris C (front left) & Chris L (front right) together we are the team at Freelance Holidays: We've been in the villa rental business since 1984, and are still going strong.
Since 1984 we have been keen as mustard about seeking and offering the best villa rentals in the best locations. In the beginning these were simple village houses and studios in Crete, and some villas in Mallorca. over the years we have added more choices of Mediterranean islands where we have sourced some great villas. Tastes have changed and we are now able to offer some fantastic villas, each with something special and different from the mass market operators usual selection. We have continued to keep our roots and proudly continue to offer typical village accommodation
