About Gabriel Vidal
Although I was born in this lovely and charming village I lived in London many years. After those London years I realized this village was the place where I wanted to live my life. The quality of life is just fantastic: weather is just great, the sea is marvellous, food is delicious, you can practice many sports including trekking, biking, climbing, diving, sailing etc...

Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We had a lovely week here and would come back again, the property was clean and well maintained, shame about the derelict properties around the area, but would not stop us from booking again, Alejandra was lovely and most helpful. Cala Figuera is wonderful a little gem!
Cosy Mallorcan casita
Clean and comfortable with a lovely backyard for enjoying a vino or two. Convenient location and ample street parking with a small supermarket next door that sells hot bread. The only inconvenience, no toilet paper or soap to shower with after a twenty seven hour flight from Australia. Luckily the supermarket next door was stocked with such products, although I would expect such items to be supplied.
Thank you very much for your review, user feedback is the main way we have to improve our service and meet our guests standards. Apologies for the toilet paper and soap not having been there. It is clearly a mistake since our policy is to provide those items (not for the whole stay but for the start-off, i.e we always leave 2 rolls of toilet paper). We will take measures to make our best to make sure it does not happen again: we will include it in the check list handed to the cleaning team and we will put our telephone numbers on the "instructions" sheet that we keep in the houses we manage. Best wishes from Mallorca
Charming home with a wonderful large courtyard in back. Very private, quiet and clean. Two nice size bedrooms with large living room and dining room. Alejandra and Gabriel were great hosts making sure that we had everything we needed. There is a well-stocked market two blocks down the street that is open daily and large supermarkets close by in Santanyi and Campos.
Cala Figuera is a small fishing village and it was wonderful to explore the port and inlets. It is a charming town with plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. We visited in April and the wild flowers were in bloom all over the island. We especially enjoyed the outdoor market in Santanyi!
We highly recommend this house for your stay in Mallorca!
A lovely property
Met on arrival by Alejandra, Gabriel's wife who told us the property had been her grandmother's and obviously held lots of fond memories for her which made it feel a little special. The photos do not show how spacious it is. Two good sized bedrooms, lounge and dining room and a large patio area/outside dining area at the back that is private and quiet. There was plenty of on-street parking right outside the property while we were there. Cala Figuera is still a traditional fishing village and a wander round the port and inlets is fascinating and it also has plenty of good places to eat for locals and tourists.
A couple of hints for others planning a visit:
- Alejandra informed us that the water around the region is undrinkable and she was right - it is VERY salty and would probably knock your electrolyte balance off if you drank it. If you have hired a car from the airport, I would advise you pick up bottled water on the way to the property. You will pass a Lidl on the outskirts of both Campos and Santanyi or if you arrive in Cala Figuera at a reasonable time, there is a small but well stocked Coaliment supermarket at the far end of the street the property is on (about a 3 minute walk from the property). A 6 litre bottle of water there cost just 89 cents.
- there are 7 concrete steps at the rear from the property to the patio so if you have very young children or have mobility difficulties, this could be a safety issue to consider.
There is so much to do so I would advise not to over stretch yourself. We had planned to visit places all over the island but there is so much to see within an hour's drive of the property. In April when we visited, the wild flowers are in bloom everywhere and the Parc Naturel Mondrago a few miles north of the property is a great place to see them but even a wander around the village and particularly follow the paths on the outskirts and you are surrounded by coastal or garrique flowers and shrubs. For birdlife, the Estany de ses Gambes near the salt pans was great - Black winged stilts, Avocets, Shelducks, Kentish plovers, Redshanks, Turnstones and you can stand just 20 feet from them on the side of the road and they are not one bit bothered. Follow this road down and you come to the gorgeous beach at Es Trenc - a conservation area and plenty of Audins Gulls etc to be seen. Also lots of smaller birds I have yet to identify from my bird books!
Would definitely recommend both the property and the area to stay.
Traumhafter Urlaub in Cala Figuera
Das Mittelmeerhäuschen ist zentral in dem kleinen Fischerörtchen gelegen und läßt keine Wünsche offen.
Die Vermieter Gabriel (per Mail) und Alejandra (vor Ort) waren absolut zuvorkommend und korrekt und es war einfach ein unkomplizierter und herzlicher Umgang miteinander.
Fazit: Wir haben im Mai 2020 und Oktober 2020 gleich wieder gebucht:)...
A lovely holiday home
A very nice and quiet place in picturesque Cala Figuera. We had a great time on Mallorca. We (2 adults and 2 teenage kids) felt very much at home and at ease in the house, and the garden is a lovely and quiet place to enjoy the mornings and evenings. Wonderful!
