We had seen photos of the villa before going to Mallorca for our holiday. But photos could not prepare us for the astounding sights that greeted us when we arrived.
A good photographer with proper camera equipment might be able capture scenes of nature that bring tears to your eyes, but there is nothing like being right in the middle of it. We see a lot more with our own eyes and all our senses.
I was reluctant to photograph anything because I knew my skills and equipment could never do justice to anything I experienced there. But I had to. As wise guys say in social networking, “Photo or it didn’t happen.”
The extent of my tan.
Casa de Reyes is a two-storey, five-bedroom luxury villa in the resort town of Puerto Pollensa, available for rent by the week. We went there in honour of Piers’ mum’s 60th birthday, although her birthday is actually today.
The design of the villa is quite plain and unassuming but I really like the interior, tastefully decorated with modern designer effects. It’s airy, with sliding door windows and doorways everywhere so there’s more than one route to get to any part of the villa.
But the key feature is, of course, the view all around: Mountains at the back, sea in front, and beautiful neighbouring villas at the side.
Well, there’s nothing much more I can say about it, so I’ll let my photos do the work now.
Casa de Reyes sits at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range in Boquer, Puerto Pollensa.
It’s a bit hidden from view at the road outside.
View from the second floor balcony.

Kitchen and dining hall.
Zoomed-in view from the balcony.
The bedroom Piers and I used. Has ensuite bathroom and a one-way door in the bathroom leading out to the pool. (In fact, every bedroom in the villa has a doorway leading out to the pool.)

A bedroom with ensuite bath, and a sliding door window that overlooks the pool.

Another view of the pool.
There’s like a rooftop area at the back of the house but it’s unfurnished so no one goes up there except Piers, who likes to stand up there to look for goats on the mountain.
Evening view of the distant mountains.

Okay, that’s quite enough photos of the villa. Will talk more about what we did in there next time!

@Sheylara: Hmm, you with a tan is something we don’t see often. It (and that popsicle) looks really good on you:)
@Piers: I’m sure EVERYONE wants to see half-naked photos of you!
@Belly B: Actually, I didn’t get burnt. No pain, no peeling, no tightness or anything. I used a LOT of sunblock. Like I said, I just tan easily. :P
@RN1209: Haha, thanks. No harm in having a new look once in a while, I suppose. :P
The lounge area reminds me of Singapore!
