Set in the scenic countryside of Mallorca’s north-eastern coast - close to the pretty villages of Moscari, Selva and Campanet - Villa Montemar Baix is an idyllic haven. Beach and mountain views are matched by the stunning offerings on its doorstep, with an impressive array of sculptures and fruit trees ripe for the picking. The villa’s sprawling estate is shared with another property, which makes it ideal for bigger groups or for sourcing fresh competition on the tennis courts.
Upon first sight, Villa Montemar Baix could be mistaken for a live-in art gallery and not a home. In every room, enviable artefacts and antiques demand your attention, from oversized vases to carved wood statement pieces. If only you could carry some of them back home in your suitcase. But for now, you’ll just marvel at how they transform even the simplest of rooms into eye-catching spaces that make it tempting to never leave the villa’s interior. Such beauty is lost on the teenagers, who make a beeline straight for the lobby’s pool table. At least everyone’s having fun.
In the lounge, you take a moment to refuel on the plush, L-shaped sofa, as your delightful concierge gifts you with a complimentary bottle of champagne. Now you’re truly on holiday. You come up with a quick plan to drop bags in rooms before congregating by the poolside to enjoy the last few hours of daylight. You’re rewarded with the master bedroom, for discovering this gem of a villa – but you’d have been happy with any of the sprawling suites. Still, Nothing can beat your room’s direct access to the covered terrace, with its carved stone seating and wooden coffee table, where you’ll be sure to take advantage of early morning sunshine in peace.
In the grounds, you’re hit with the fragrant scent of almond, olive and fruit trees, which help evoke a mood of tranquillity. The backdrop of the Tramuntana mountains is an otherworldly sight, causing you to feel truly removed from the ordinary. By the entrance of the house, an impressive sculpture stands before you, and the most exceptional feature of all is, of course, the pool. Centred within wooden decking, with padded sun loungers dotted around, its crystal clear waters beckon you in, and you obey – swimming luxurious laps in its 55sq m pool.
As the afternoon closes in, the culinary mastermind in the group fires up the barbeque. Trays of aperitifs make the rounds so that, by the time the terrace table is laid with steaming fish and grilled vegetables, you’re ravenous. The wine and good company inspires you each to share your hopes for the holiday, and you’re all in agreement that you’d like to spend as much quality time as possible at this extraordinary hideaway.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Whether you’d prefer to have your chef prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime or alternatively you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars, the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides house wines, beers, a drinks tray of two bottles of house spirits and mixers. Champagne is served with canapés on 6 nights of your stay.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
