A fresh breeze filters through pine trees and darts around the hills to cool this peaceful farmhouse near Pollença and Alcudia. You can barbecue on the sun-dappled terrace gazing over old farmland and forest, or fire up the wood-burning oven for crisp pizza and slow-roasted meat. And you can swim in a large, safely fenced saltwater pool ringed by leafy Mediterranean plants and flowers. Clear Mallorcan light follows you inside through uncommonly large windows, and illuminates the fabulous kitchen with its central island and all mod cons. Families can bounce around in the high-beamed, terracotta-tiled living room, dine at a 12-seater oak table and gather for games around a wood-burning stove. Four fresh, whitewashed bedrooms upstairs have some lovely rustic furniture in cast iron and wood; the balcony in the master bedroom overlooks the Caseta, newly-decorated and attractive with extra beds, a kitchen, bathroom and sitting room. Bird watch in the garden, wander forest trails, or pop 10 minutes to the coast for S’Albufereta Nature Reserve and the beach.
