Situated in the country, among 2 hectares of land and newly planted trees, our lovely home overlooks the town and has no immediate neighbors.
The interior completely redesigned by Sylvia to make the best out of its beautiful space, was refurbished over the last few months to a high standard.
Open plan design, white walls and polished concrete floors are complimented by custom design hydraulic tiles and eclectic style interior with various pieces of art, books and sculptures collected over the years of our travels.
The house has many windows and is light and sunny. It has unobstructed views from the east to the west, from sunrise to sunset.
The East wing contains two bedrooms and an office, the central part consists of very large living room and a mezzanine master bedroom, while the West side contains the dining room, kitchen and laundry.
The South facing front of the house has a large terrace with a relaxing seating area and a dining table, while the West side has a pergola and an outdoor pizza oven.
The house, while being away from busy roads, is only 15 minutes walk from the friendly town of Porreres.
Among our family and friends, our house is known as the Rancho Relaxo:)
We have 3 adopted dogs (Gina, Chico and Lucy) who live in their doggy bungalow outside and who are looked after and fed by a friend from the village while we are away.
One of the bedrooms is still waiting to be renovated but it is comfortable and lovely to live in as it is. Similarly our garden is by no means perfect, as we have a way to go for our trees and shrubs to mature and for all areas to be tidied and utilized, however living here is very enjoyable and we hope you can look past the imperfections.
We live off the grid and make our own electricity and hot water using solar, while our water comes from a deep well in our garden.
We are very proud to be self sufficient and doing our bit for the planet!
What this means for our house guests is that once a week you will need to manually turn on the well pump to fill up the storage tank to have water for the house. It also means being conscious about energy use e.g. spreading out the use of energy hungry appliances throughout the day so that they are not on all at the same time (deep well pump, dishwasher, vacuum, washing machine)
Our house was built to be well insulated and we keep it cool during the summer by keeping all doors closed during the day and opening them once the sun has gone down. We have mosquito nets and heat insulating blinds on all windows and this works really great.
Even during the hottest heat waves our house stays around 27C without the use of AC.
