Charming historic villa with extensive grounds, beautiful gardens, pool and tennis court

Sleeps 12

Purple Summer is delighted to be offering this wonderful property in conjunction with the villa owner who looks after the villa themselves with their own team. Please note, the services and inclusions are slightly different to the other Purple Summer villas and are listed below. Please contact us for further details or if you have any questions.

Historic Villa Can Melcion is a 16th century farmhouse which formerly acted as an olive-pressing facility for the nearby olive groves. Today, it is hard to imagine a villa with a more idyllic setting, surrounded by 175 acres of grounds, beautiful gardens, and the forests and mountains beyond.

Can Melcion’s outdoor spaces are among the most charming to be found anywhere, comprising shady terraces perfect for al fresco dining; a swimming pool carved into the hillside and surrounded by sun loungers, palm trees and pots of colourful flowers; its own orange grove down by the river, and private tennis court. There are plenty of excellent hikes which lead straight from the front door, through the oak forests and up into the rugged peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana which surround the villa.

The villa’s traditional interiors make ample use of terracotta floors and exposed wooden beams, and it is air conditioned throughout, providing respite from the heat of the middle of the day. There is a billiards room and television room to keep the children occupied, and the airy and spacious open plan layout is perfect for families wanting to spread out.

Villa Can Melcion enjoys a wonderfully peaceful and private location in a forested valley, where the only sound to be heard is the soft jangling of bells around the sheep’s necks. Yet, it is just a short drive from the stunning beaches and coves of the north coast, and the bustling markets of Pollença.

  • Private mountain location not far from the beach
  • Superb villa for children with pool, billiards room and tennis court
  • Beautiful mature gardens with open and covered terraces

We are offering Villa Can Melcion in conjunction with the owner of the villa, who provides their own staff.

  • Private chef on 5 out of 7 days, who will prepare and serve lunch and an evening meal (food and drink not included)
  • Breakfast on 6 out of 7 days
  • Housekeeping daily except Sundays
  • Gardening and pool maintenance staff who will visit the property regularly
  • Bed linen and towels. Additional laundry requirements by arrangement
  • Unlimited Wi-Fi

A nanny service can be arranged on request, for an additional cost.

Purple Summer concierge

We understand that organising a luxury villa holiday isn’t just about finding the perfect villa. It’s about the professional dedicated staff, the magnificent food and wine, and all the thoughtful extra touches which make your holiday truly memorable.

Our villas are located in only a handful of destinations we know inside-out and are immensely passionate about. The Purple Summer team will be with you every step of the way, from the moment you book your holiday and start to organise the finer details, to your arrival at the villa where you’ll receive dedicated support from our in-resort team should you need anything arranging during your stay.

We will take care of everything, from the essentials such as private airport transfers, professional childcare, and restaurant reservations – to the unique experiences which make your holiday extra special. Are you celebrating a birthday or anniversary during your stay? We’ll gladly organise live music or a cocktail evening in the privacy of your villa, or a face-painting party for your children. Or why not make your holiday one to remember with a vineyard tour, hot air balloon ride, diving trip or beach yoga? Whatever you’d like to do, we are ideally placed to recommend the best local operators and make any reservations on your behalf, so all that’s left for you to do is relax and enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
