“A rustic-chic hideaway at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains with fantastic food and a warm welcome”
The 11 rooms are spread between the atmospheric old farmhouse and a newer extension. Though simply styled, all are spacious and characterful, with whitewashed walls, beamed ceilings and terracotta-tiled floors. Beds are said to be super-comfortable, with memory-foam mattresses; add the perfect peace of the countryside and you'll sleep deeply - especially if you close the shutters. Smart ensuite bathrooms are lovely, some with Jacuzzi jets in their bathtubs or double sinks. Towelling robes and toiletries add homely comfort.
There are various categories of room to choose from; best are those with a balcony, which allow you to sit and gaze over golden fields and up to the craggy Tramuntana mountains. All you'll hear is the tinkling of goat bells.
Paola's mantra is 'everything is fresh, most of it is local and nothing is frozen.' Veg and fish come from the local markets, and the style of cooking is 'a bit of Italian, a bit of Mallorquin but always Mediterranean.'
Four-course dinners are served Monday-Saturday during high season, and the menu changes daily. Highlights are tortelloni filled with pumpkin and sage, sea bass with mango and avocado, and a slow-roast lamb shoulder. Puddings are deliciously indulgent (tiramisu, lemon tart, that sort of thing) and James keeps the Mallorcan wines flowing.
Breakfast is a superb buffet of local meats, several cheeses, homemade breads, fresh fruit and a homemade cake. Eggs and bacon can be cooked to order. For a change of scene or light lunch, there are a clutch of excellent local restaurants or you can pre-order filled baguettes at breakfast.
Families are welcome at this relaxed and simple hotel, and kids will enjoy the pool and gardens. Best for active outdoorsy kids who will enjoy mountain biking and walking.
