Inside the Campanet Villa
The villa at Campanet combines the stylish and authentic feel of a traditional Mallorcan villa with a modern standard of finish. Being built in 2009 means that it is insulated, plumbed and heated like a modern building, but the antique wooden window fittings, exposed timbers and antique furniture provide that stylish and authentic feel. Although there’s a welcoming entrance-hall, most cyclists will enter not through the hefty front doors but up the stairs from the basement.
Running under the entire house, the basement gives you a secure place to store your bike, and an indoor well-light space to set it up and adjust it when you arrive.
The main living room has a log-burning stove, thick rugs and space to stretch out. If you don;t want to talk into the evening, there’s a TV (with most of the UK’s freeview-type channels) and there’s wifi throughout the villa.
Of course much of the conversation happens around the table over the 3-course dinner that’s prepared for you in the villa each evening and served with local wine (Mallorca’s wine was once revered s the best in the world).
