A rural house with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, but only minutes from bars, restaurants, beaches, golf course, shops and different leisure activities to enjoy with family or groups of friends. There is a garden with tall, leafy trees of more than 30 years that provide a natural landscape and fresh air in the hot summer afternoons. At the back of the house is the cactus garden with some 30 varieties of cacti and among them there is one of the Carnegiea species (Saguaro) that measures more than 9 meters, one of the highest specimens that can be found in the island. The pool is large and next to it a spacious solarium area that allows different ways to enjoy the garden, sun and water. Terrace with garden furniture, a porch to relax with sofa and armchairs and a table with chairs under the shade to eat the best meals made in the barbecue. A large space for parking and a garage to store beach items or bicycles.
The house still preserves the essence of the past, its farmers still harvest almonds for toasting and olives to make oil. In the field, food is grown for the animals and sometimes you can see the sheep grazing.
The original structure of the house was built more than 100 years ago and you can still see traces of the architecture of that time. Most of the walls are 80 cm thick and the windows are small, so the temperature inside the house is neither so cold nor so hot. Since 1975 it belongs to our family and has been renovated to enjoy an idyllic holiday.
From the terrace on the first floor you can enjoy the views of the countryside and the sea or the Monte Sant Salvador
In Can Blonquet you will feel a rural environment where there is no hurry, where time is established by sunlight.
5 minutes on a safe and correctly signposted road separates Can Blonquet from Cala d'Or. Next to the road there is a bike path that can be used to walk with children or as a training circuit.
Near the beaches with fine white sand, with the possibility of boat rental, excursions to other Balearic Islands and the National Park of Cabrera, bicycle rental, kayak, diving and all kinds of marine activities; There is also a golf course a few kilometers away and a natural park: the MondragÃ³ Park with its natural beaches. Cala Sa Nau is 5 minutes away by car, it is a small beach with crystal clear waters, perfect to spend the day with the family as it has parking nearby, bathrooms and restaurant. At 30 km you can find Es Trenc a virgin beach; 25 km are the beautiful caves of Drach.
You can also find markets in neighboring cities where it is possible to buy fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and meat from the area. In the village there is a small bakery where fresh bread is prepared every day in an old wood-fired oven.
In Can Blonquet there are not only 10 beds for 10 people to sleep, but there is enough space for those ten people to enjoy all of the same activity together or also to get away and have a moment of privacy in one of the many places available for quieter activities such as reading, doing yoga, or a pending conversation.
There is a work area with a desk and several areas with a sofa and armchairs.
In the whole house you can find 4 tables, one of them is in the dining room, there is another one on the porch that is next to the kitchen, another next to the pool that is ideal for eating barbecues and another table under the tree that is in front at the main entrance door. Personally I think that table is ideal for breakfast with the first rays of the sun.
It also has a guest house with bedroom, living room and bathroom with shower, ideal for the noisiest of the group.
We are processing the "cycling friendly" certificate. The entrance of the house is on a bicycle route and is 2 kilometers from other routes of greater difficulty. The house also has a basic kit of tools, air compressor and the garage available for the protection of the team of cyclists. We also have a large van to transport all the equipment (not all people) from the airport to the house.
