Description

The space

Self-contained newly reformed apartment on Ground floor with direct access off the street in the Old Quarter of Esporles with stunning panoramic views from the Roof Garden on the terrace above.

The Roof Garden offers the best view in the village: a panoramic view from East to West that makes an early breakfast before the heat of the day or a refreshing drink as the Sun slips behind the hills equally memorable. English antique garden furniture, garden lighting, dining table, 2 seat sofas and chaise longues all translates into the perfect spot for al fresco living and dining. A Bar b que on an adjoining section of the roof terrace completes the scene.
For Sun Worshipers we have just installed a Shower on the roof so you can Cool Down in the heat of the day without leaving the Roof Garden.

YOGA
We offer Iyengar Yoga classes ... group or one to one ...prices on request... in the same building ( next apartment along ) where we live ... conducted in English and Castellano Spanish for 2 guests at one time. Yoga mats, blocks, belts, blankets and eye bags all provided.

Chris is a great host, and has a wealth of suggestions for places to see, walk and eat to suit everyone's tastes. The apartment is extremely comfortable and amazingly well equipped, while the roof terrace is an absolute delight. We could have spent hours up there! Many thanks Chris, we will hope to visit again soon!

We had a fantastic holiday. We stayed at the apartment for two weeks. Once we arrived we received a warm welcome from our hosts and since it was early morning they had arranged breakfast for us. The apartment is perfect with plenty of room - we were with two persons but you can easliy have more people. The apartment had everything we needed for our holiday, a well equipped kitchen, a good bed and good shower. The roof terrace was amazing; the tagline is absolutely correct: best view in Esporles. Chris was always there for us in case we needed something; we also had a lovely dinner with him, Francesca and Blanche. Esporles itself is a lovely village with several good restaurants around the central square. Esporles is also a perfect spot if you are a cyclist; there are three main ways to leave the village to get to your cycle tours. We'd love to go back there someday soon!

Chris is a super host, we had an amazing time at the flat. The view is superb the flat made us feel at home and as we were arriving late on a Saturday night Chris made sure there were some supplies, that actually went a long way past emergency. Also Chris made sure our travel went carbon neutral by donating to the World Land Trust on our behalf, which we heard about for the first time and really loved as a concept. If we get back to Mallorca I'm sure we'll be back at this flat (if available). Ok I stop it now, but yes great airbnb experience for us. All the best and thanks again!

Wonderful to have met you both...really great spirit of appreciation and for the great comments on the Carbon Balanced flights with The World Land Trust, a special, big THANKS! Come again soon ! If we don't come to stay with you in Berlin first...we have always wanted to see the city and visit Francisca's dance partner so who knows! Very best wishes to you both from Esporles!
