Country homes on Mallorca are nowadays generally known as “fincas”, a word adapted from its original meaning which is land. A finca means rustic land where possibly fruit, olive or almond trees thrive. These plots in the stunning countryside quite often used to have run-down buildings or sheds and a real boom set in to buy these derelict buildings with the land and reform them to modern standards. There are many traditional houses with pools for sale all over the countryside surrounding Pollensa that bear witness to this boom.
The owners of these special Mallorca properties all took great care to maintain authentic elements, therefore the exterior appearance is generally emphasised by a natural stone façade – the typical rural look! Inside features such as exposed wooden beams in the ceilings, mighty fireplaces, fanciful stone floors and original Mallorcan textile produced in Pollensa just to name some, enhance the atmosphere and appearance.
No matter what you tend to call your country property, finca, villa or anything else, all these extraordinary houses stand out and are the perfect property for nature lovers. People who are not shy of living apart from a town and “civilisation”, who appreciate privacy and tranquillity will love the lifestyle these traditional houses with pools for sale offer. For these countryside loving property hunters, a Mallorca finca for sale is a dream come true! Fresh orange juice from freshly picked fruit in the finca’s orchard for breakfast or even fresh eggs from your own hens – who could resist these temptations.
Traditional does not necessarily mean rustic here in the Mediterranean, a villa with pool for sale close to the sea can also be traditional. Many older villas have the typical warm charm of south European properties, whilst the modern ones are more minimalistic and unpersonal. The entrance door of a typical traditional villa will generally be flanked by 2 or 4 pillars and possible more will be supporting the first-floor terraces. Depending on the size of the villa there may also be interior support pillars, they are a very Mediterranean feature in- and outdoors.
The villa exterior will be painted in a soft pastel colour perhaps gentle salmon, or sand colour. The windows may have sandstone trimmings, but the façade will not be stone-clad like a rustic property. Traditional Mediterranean villas for sale generally have very shiny floor tiles or even marble flooring throughout, huge kitchens with pantries and preparation areas. Families in south Europe love to congregate at least once a week for a lunch or evening meal together and this may mean up to 20 people will be sitting down for a meal. Hence dining rooms also have ample proportions! The comparison between a traditional country house with pool for sale and a villa-style property can prove to be quite intriguing.
