About this listing
“Unique Villa on the water's edge”
This former fisherman’s house holds possibly THE very best position in the whole of Cala Figuera, with wonderful views over the deep turquoise blue of this picturesque Cala from just about every angle and it must be the only Villa in the whole of our programme where even the view from the garage is unbeatable.
Once just a simple fisherman’s cottage with a boathouse and a small quay, the house was rebuilt in the 1970’s to provide comfortable accommodation with two bedrooms and today this in vogue ‘retro’ look with some subtle updates offers a unique holiday house in this unbeatable position, where the lapping waves provides constant background music. These days the private quay makes an idyllic sun deck furnished with sun beds and parasol from where the comings of goings of the fishermen and pleasure boats in this beautiful natural harbour can be enjoyed.
The living space above the boathouse is surrounded by outside terraces, with a canopy topped dining area conveniently close to the kitchen, a sitting area and a little garden with terraces of hibiscus, jacaranda and various other mediterranean plantings rising above a lovely shady corner, just perfect to disappear into with a good book.
Inside, the house has been neatly laid out with, at the entrance level, a small shower room finished with white tiles next to a twin bedroom from whose window the water in the Cala can be seen glinting between the slender branches of an overhanging eucalyptus.
Eight steps lead down from the entrance hall into the dining area with a table and rattan chairs next to french doors opening to the terrace. The sitting room, a further three steps down, has windows on three sides with panoramic views around the Cala and French Doors to the terrace. Comfortably furnished with sofas and chairs there’s a TV and a fireplace for cooler evenings.
The kitchen, totally equipped for holiday catering has a full electric cooker, microwave and fridge freezer and a serving hatch through to the dining area. Behind the kitchen is a pantry and laundry with a washing machine.
From the approach road above the house there is access to the footpath which leads around the Cala to the village where there is a choice of restaurants overlooking the water. There is a wider choice of restaurants and shops in nearby Santanyi just a short drive away.
You can enter the water with care from the quay, to swim in the crystal clear Cala but for a day at the beach, it is 3.2km through the Mondrago National Park to the beautiful natural sandy sweep of beach at S’Amarador.

Hi, our names are Diane (rear left) Paul (rear right) Chris C (front left) & Chris L (front right) together we are the team at Freelance Holidays: We've been in the villa rental business since 1984, and are still going strong.
Since 1984 we have been keen as mustard about seeking and offering the best villa rentals in the best locations. In the beginning these were simple village houses and studios in Crete, and some villas in Mallorca. over the years we have added more choices of Mediterranean islands where we have sourced some great villas. Tastes have changed and we are now able to offer some fantastic villas, each with something special and different from the mass market operators usual selection. We have continued to keep our roots and proudly continue to offer typical village accommodation
