Nestled in such a secluded and tranquil spot, guests will come across this home and be struck by such a hidden gem! With beautiful dappled trellis framing the poolside, and the use of local, natural stone and courtyard style outdoor spaces, along with the private outdoor dining pavilion, guests will be well set up for al fresco dining. The pool is a centrepiece, offering ample terrace space, loungers and sun beds or cool shade within the mysterious and charmingly natural gardens.
The brick built barbecue is provided within the outdoor kitchenette and dining space - the family or group will enjoy coming together at the end of a busy day out to enjoy local flavours and wines! Table, beautiful polar and fragrant pine trees sway in the breeze - this reread offers absolute seclusion and tranquillity for guests seeking to get away from the bustle of modern living.

Villa Merce is in a rural location, a stone’s throw from the sandy beach of Cala Marsal - just outside Porto Colom.
Porto Colom is a charming, natural harbour in the south-east of Majorca, considered one of the most attractive spots in the district of Felanitx.
As a traditional finishing village, Porto Colom retains much of its original charm. The town nestles around one of the largest, most sheltered bays on the island, where the boathouses, lighthouse and boats add to the graphic nature of the place.
The main beach in Porto Colom is the blue flag Cala Marcela which boasts sandy, shallow waters; there is an array of other beaches accessible locally.
Porto Colom was named after Christopher Columbus who was allegedly born there, and until tourism boomed, the town was a simple, working fishing pony.
There is a prehistoric burial ground, dating back to around 2000 BC.
Porto Colom doesn’t have many shops, but the long quayside offers some interesting boutiques and crafts. For more severe shopping there is either Felanitx or Santanyi, both offering lively markets.
Water sports and beach life are very much central to Majorca.
Cycling is a significant part of the tourism trade in this part of Majorca - it has become a central hub for those wanting to make the most of the diverse array of northern routes and rugged, beautiful scenery. With safe, yet challenging, mountain roads and year-round temperate weather, cycling enthusiasts will find themselves among a like-minded biking community.
Hiking is likewise very much a draw for visitors to the region; a gorgeous hike being the route to the former monastery Lluc, situated in the Tramuntana mountains - along yet wonderfully rewarding path offering unspoilt views of luscious nature.
Golfers will be very much at home with an array of golf courses to select from.
Whether it be pilates, or paddle boarding, kite surfing or chartering a private boat to explore hidden corners of the coastline, the opportunities for sports and activities at all levels are endless.
The promenade next to Port Colom is usually a bustle of rollerbladers, walkers, cyclists and families just out for a stroll, whilst at the end of the beach, next to Pine Walk, visitors will come across the stone sculpture workshops - courses include open-air classes in sculpture, complete with daily yoga sessions and one to one coaching.
Not so much known for its nightlife, this corner of Mallorca is very much a family-friendly destination, however many of the restaurants offer live music and party nights. The range of eateries is diverse, while all ages will be welcome in restaurants.

Mallorcans adore children; from playgrounds to child-friendly restaurants, children will not only be welcome but will be actively fussed over! Many restaurants offer inexpensive children’s menus - simple grilled meats, fries, spaghetti, and tortillas, not to mention ice cream! While those with more adventurous tastes may enjoy the local pa ambient oli - bread rubbed with olive oil, tomatoes and a variety of toppings.
