Port Verd is perched right on the water’s edge on the quiet north east coast of Mallorca. With a large sub-tropical garden planted with exotic palms and fruit trees, the estate, which includes a defence tower dating back to 1751, offers direct access to the water.

The property consists of a spacious stone-built house with a separate guest apartment enjoying its own independent beachside entrance and is within walking distance to a delightful restaurant located on the rocks and adjoining sandy beach.

The main house has five bedrooms and a covered terrace which takes advantage of the spectacular sea views. It was constructed in 1985 and boasts a large living area with dining room and kitchen opening onto terraces, plus a second large living room on the first floor. In addition there are 3 bedroom suites, 2 bedrooms sharing a bathroom, guest loo and storage.

The current owners have amassed Santanyí & Mares stone elements and built-in antique stone carvings collected from the convents on the island.

The guest apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious living/dining room and kitchen. The circular defence tower, with 2 metre stone walls and consisting two floors, is in original and perfect condition along with two original canons.

The house is a 15 minute drive from the town of Arta.
