Villa Campanet combines traditional style of a Spanish villa with the comfort and finish of a modern, newly built house. Inside the villa, the rooms are relaxing and welcoming, and the bedrooms are warm and cosy, with antique furniture and stylish touches. There’s fresh linen and towels on your arrival.
It’s the views and location of the villa that really set it apart; the villa lies on the very edge of the small town of Campanet, with views of and walks in the countryside on its doorstep. The views to the mountains are extraordinary; Puig Tomir (at 1104m) dominates the view of the peaks. Between the villa and the mountains there is a valley of olive, pine, and carob trees, with the medieval church of San Miguel, the caves of Coves Campanet, and the nature park of Font Ufanes a short and pleasant walk away. It’s just 8 minutes walk from the villa to the cafes and bars in the medieval town square of Campanet.
On 6 out of your 7 days, your evening meal is prepared and served in the villa, around the long dining table where the day’s riding is relived, discussed and perhaps exaggerated!
Campanet lies at the bottom of the south side of the mountains, northeast of Inca. It’s a village that many cyclists visiting the island pass through. It may be a good place to pass through, but Campanet is the perfect place to be based as a cyclist! Because it lies on the south side of the mountains, every day you have a great choice of routes: if you want to ride mountains, head north; if you want the flat plain, head south (and then further south to rolling gentle country); if you want spectacular rolling scenery, head east or west and traverse the south side of the mountains in the foothills.Here’s why staying in Campanet is so much better than staying in Port de Pollenca: the standard loop for riders staying in Port de Pollenca goes up from Pollenca to Luc, then down through Selva; they will return to Pollenca through Campanet to avoid the Inca to Alcudia main road, heading up the Cami Vell de Pollenca, which follows its own quiet valley from Campanet to the meet the main road south of Pollenca.This is route number 2 (60km) on the Mallorca Bicycle Map that all our guests receive, and it’s the best ride available to Port de Pollenca-based riders; they can do it anticlockwise or clockwise, but that’s it; if they want to do any other climb on the island, they are forced into days of epic lengths: to do the Sa Calobra climb they must do over 100km; to do the Col de Soller they are in for a day of over 140km! From Campanet, the ride to Sa Calobra and back is 76km; the ride over the Luc, Soller and Orient passes is a manageable 105km.Remember, you can always make a ride longer, but if your base is in the wrong place, there’s nothing you can do to make a ride shorter!
The normal change over day for this villa is Saturday. If you need to arrive or leave on a different day of the week, or if you want to stay longer or shorter than 7 days; get in touch, we might be able to do this on a pro-rata basis.
