  • Delightful extensive grounds
  • Stylish and characterful
  • Wonderfully private

This romantic Simpson Secret is tucked away in the countryside with a unique free-form swimming pool and a covered terrace area, perfect for long lazy lunches, within the extensive grounds. The little town of Santa Margalida grew up around the site of a Moorish farmstead and is a five-minute drive away. Its large square, surrounded by trees, shops and tapas bars, gives a fascinating glimpse of old Mallorca.

A short country drive brings you to Son Serra de Marina and Ca'n Picafort, with the glorious beach of Playa de Muro extending all the way to Alcúdia.

Customer feedback

Beautiful terracotta roof tiles, sheltering every carefully placed stone, makes this villa. Spacious and comfortable inside with all you could need to rest, wash and feed. All set in the delightful and charming gardens; a true retreat. No need to rush around to busy places, no reason not to stop and stare. We fell in love with this Secret. Magnificent murmuration of starlings right here on Thursday. Thank you Simpson for an amazing hamper and fridge full of delights!
Linda & Paul – October 2019

We have enjoyed our week here. Thank you Simpson for a well-stocked hamper and fridge – much appreciated. Playa de Sa Conova and Cala Mesquide were our favourite beaches – the former with no facilities and the latter with them all. Arta was our favourite town – lovely atmosphere, nice shops, beautiful church. We have travelled with Simpson many times before and will continue to use them – very efficient and professional and their standard of properties high so we are never disappointed. Thank you for a great holiday.
Di & David – October 2019

Quiet and secluded setting and perfect for recharging the batteries which was what we were looking for. We were not disappointed. The pool was invigorating and we did not see anyone in the surrounding countryside and our only visitors were Graham of Simpson and the cleaner. We endorse The Windmill and also Angela’s selection of S’Acusticafe. The best supermarket was Eroski while entering San Picafort. This was our third holiday with Simpson but certainly not the last.
Deb & Guy – September 2019

A lovely relaxing week – what a beautiful house and garden, so peaceful.
Guy & Vanessa – September 2019

We have enjoyed the quiet and peaceful setting. The house is lovely and had everything we needed. The well-stocked hamper on arrival was very welcome! Our favourite trips were to Pollença and to Sineu where the Wednesday market is well worth a visit.
Mike & Margaret – August 2019

What a unique house to stay in. The history of the family is all here. Simpson is such a good company – the welcome hamper was amazing and attention to detail exceptional. Love beach and restaurants in San Picafort. Pollença is a lovely town and well worth a visit. Many thanks, Angela, for the fresh eggs and flowers. The Simpson reps are so friendly and obliging.
Jackie & Barrie – August 2019

This was our first visit to this villa and we really enjoyed the peace and tranquillity. The outside area, especially the pool, was lovely. We have spent two weeks here and have made the most of the villa, as well as travelling around. We have found Simson Travel to be very professional and efficient. Angela has been particularly attentive.
Mike & Patsy – July 2019

We have had a wonderfully peaceful two weeks. We have explored the centre of the island and its old traditional villages, leaving the commercialised coast to the crowds. If you want a restaurant that is a cut above the others then we found that The Windmill restaurant was excellent.
John & Trish – June/July 2019

Wonderful villa with great pol, lovely location and very quiet. This is our 6th visit to Mallorca and we have not been to this area before and found it a great contrast. Very affluent farmers and beautiful countryside. Had amazing meal at Il Giardino in the square at Pollença, best ever meal in this country – langoustine, scallops on an artichoke purée – just divine!
Caroline & Alan – June 2019

We have enjoyed the villa, the space and location and beautiful setting. Thank you to Simpson Travel for their welcome; lovely hamper and attention to detail. Angela has been really helpful and a delight to deal with. This is a wonderful base from which to explore much of Mallorca and we have made many forays during our stay. We have particularly enjoyed Pollença for the Sunday market and wine festival (held whilst we were here), lunching at Q11. Sóller and Deià – visiting Robert Graves’ lovely home and lunching at the restaurant used when filming The Night Manager. A great day in Palma visiting the sights – we particularly enjoyed the Palace next to the Cathedral. An amazing find for lunch was Caso Julio at Calle de la Previsio. Lovely home-cooked food at a great price. We also enjoyed Sineu where there is a lovely deli with a great selection of good fresh fruit and veg – Agromart. We ate at the Windmill restaurant which was definitely the best meal we have enjoyed on the island – superb. We have been met with kindness everywhere and love the island. We will return…
Chris & Robin – May 2019

Simpson Travel is by far the most efficient and professional holiday company we have used. We knew Simpson were good from a previous holiday a few years ago. But just how good – we've just discovered. Everything from the attention and friendliness of the reps in Majorca, the huge welcome hamper, the likes of which we had never seen before! – the big soft bath towels, the location and peacefulness of the villa, was perfect. Angela turned up on our arrival afternoon with fresh eggs from her chickens and flowers from her garden. Such a lovely person with a winning smile. We had asked Simpson to ensure that our hire car was a small one and this was passed on to the car hire company whose rep was very friendly and helpful. Overall top marks for customer service and satisfaction – we will definitely use Simpson again and recommend to friends.
Jackie Gregory May 2019

This is a rural idyll with a lovely pool. Simpson Travel is definitely a cut above the rest.
G Westwood – August 2018

 

 

This was our first time using Simpson Travel and we doubt it will be the last. The entire experience from the initial enquiry through to the on-line booking, the website information and management and then follow-up support was first class. The Simpson Travel representative was on hand when we arrived and provided excellent advice as well as support. The villa itself was exactly as described on the website and was exactly what we were looking for – quiet, very private but close enough to all the sites we wanted to visit. It was also well-equipped, clean and well maintained.
Lance & Andrea – July 2018

We know when we choose a Simpson Travel holiday, we're never disappointed.
Mrs Howe – April 2018

A beautiful, secluded, relaxing hideaway to come back to on a hot day. We loved sitting in the garden. The rest of our time was spent bird watching on nature reserves so didn't see any tourist sites.
Ann & Jim – September 2017

Our tenth year visiting this beautiful haven of peace and tranquillity. It was lovely to meet Sonia and must say the hamper was the best in all our 11 years of travelling with Simpson Travel. There are so many artisan foods on the island, good to see some in our welcome pack. If you like cheese, visit Porto Cristo market on Sunday. Hope the next guests are as happy as we have been whenever we stay. Lastly special thanks to Jaime and Rosa. As you both know we love this house.
Tracy & Michael – June 2017

It was the first time we had returned to this villa since we went in 2010. It was even better with the upgraded cooking facilities and air-conditioning in the bedroom. We had forgotten just how nice the pool area is and just how easy it is to simply walk in the pool at the shallow end. The best pool we have had in recent years.
Mr Brown – June 2017

It has been a very hot week so we didn't move far. Enjoyed the birdlife – especially the nightingales and redpolls. Beach at Cala Torta (just beyond Arta) was lovely for swimming. Very scenic drive there. Huge thanks to Sonia and Leslie who were brilliant! 
Liz Trotman & Francis Drake – June 2017

We have been coming to this beautiful house since 2007 and every visit has been one where we still discover new things to see, despite being regular visitors to the island. Once again thanks to Jaime and Rosa for all their hard work in making this lovely house and garden such a special place.
Tracy & Michael – July 2016

Thank you Simpson Travel for creating such a peaceful environment for us to have such a relaxing holiday in Mallorca. We loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave! We are definitely coming back next year and will ensure we have two weeks. Thank you for all the wonderful organisation and attention to every detail, we really appreciated it all. 
Mrs Haydn-Slater – June 2016

Our first trip to the island and we were impressed and hope to return. Villa and garden such a lovely and peaceful spot, that we didn’t venture from that much.
Lesley & Richard – June 2016

Our seventh holiday with SimpsonTravel and once again a superb villa. Very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. We loved sitting in the garden listening to the birds – especially the nightingales. We were thrilled when a Hoopoe landed on the terrace in front of us. Certainly a 'get away from it' all place.
The Paul Family – May 2016

Third visit to this villa, wonderful as always. Many enjoyable afternoon spent by the pool in glorious sunshine – hope to be back again.
Simon & Moira – April 2016

 

Our choice of Mallorquín properties is as diverse as the island itself, ranging from simple seaside charm to comfortable and stylish. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.

To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
