Who we are

  1. We are a needy couple, 25 years (Dutch) and 34 years (Spanish) old. We have an online holiday rental company called House Mallorca and I work as a model. Juan Carlos is a lawyer. We have done our first two home exchanges with people from New York in December 2008 and December 2009. And we would love to go back to there in November or beginning of December 2011 for a few months. This can be non simultaneous. We have also exchanged in Paris and Maui.
    We are open to all kinds of weekend trips within Europe to Paris, Rome and Florence. Preferable in autumn and spring. We also love skiing, so a good sized ski chalet next to the slopes is very welcome too (at least 3 bedrooms). We would be very interested in traveling to Indonesia.
    And I would love to go to Paris for a month to do a language course French.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The town house is located in the idyllic village of Selva near the town square and the church, right in front of the "Sierra de Tramuntana" mountain range. The situation of the finca, inside the village, means that you can find a small supermarket, a baker and other small shops within walking distance. You have also some typical Majorcan restaurants and bars nearby. The house is the ideal starting point for car excursions or long walks discovering the surroundings of Selva and the mountains. In Inca, the nearby town, you can find excellent shopping possibilities and every Thursday a large weekly market takes place in the town centre. By car you can reach the long sand beaches near Alcudia and Pollenca within approx. 30 minutes. Pollensa also offers one of the most beautiful golf courses of the island. Various excellent golf courses are situated in the South of the island, near Santa Ponsa and in Bendinat and Son Vida. For a Palma visit we recommend leaving your car in Inca and taking the train to the town.
