“We stayed with our two young children at La Rafal for Easter (April) and were absolutely delighted. We would definitely rent this house again on a future trip to Pollenca. Situation: the house is very private, no neighbours, on a big plot of land. It has amazing views of the Tramuntana all around. At the same time, it is a five-minute drive away from the town of Pollenca, so very centrally located. There is a bit of "hum" from the road but you can't hear it indoors. It did not bother us. The house: very modern, the layout is really good, we particularly enjoyed having our lunches in the central patio. All rooms are very spacious, nicely furnished, house well-appointed, comfortable beds etc. There is a second living room which can be used as a play room for children. There are two dining rooms, a laundry room, a pantry... The upstairs master bedroom is completely isolated from a noise perspective from the ground floor rooms, so family guests such as grandparents not wishing to be woken up early by children could stay there and have a more restful time. We couldn't use the pool or jacuzzi at this time of year, but appreciated the fact that there was a barrier so our children could not access it, which is rare in Majorca and very reassuring from a safety perspective. Note that the water was warm enough to be able to swim in Puerto Pollensa. Service: the house is serviced by one of the largest agencies on the island, which means that problems are sorted out very quickly. The dishwasher broke down: someone was with us within the hour to check it, and it was replaced with a new machine within 48 hours. We would definitely recommend this villa as a great place to stay.”
La Rafal has the wow factor! Very spacious and modern and only 10 minute walk from the beautiful Pollenca town. The pool is not massive but the kids ,13 and 17 yrs loved it and having no close neighbours meant they made a lot of noise !
A few problems....no instructions for anything ..from hot tub to tv....so we had to ring the contact number a few times.Also a couple of the shower heads were ineffective and needed a good clean. Oh and outside lights didn't work.we reported these problems and most were dealt with very promptly by the rental company.Also a small welcome pack would have been appreciated...is milk bread etc .All in all a lovely place that with a few tweaks could have been perfect.
Everything about this villa is perfect. Only a few minutes drive from Pollenca tucked down into the valley with views across the countryside and mountains. Well maintained gardens and a stunning pool area with plenty of outside furniture. Inside the villa is very spacious, well equipped with all modern conveniences, elegantly furnished and comfortable beds. The air conditioning was very welcome in the bedrooms at night.
The piece de resistance has to be the internal courtyard with fruit trees, mint and large dining table. Perfect for a long lunch!
We all loved the pond, watching the fish, frogs and dragonflies is very relaxing. In the evening all you can hear is the frogs croaking and the distant bleeting of goats.
The situation is perfect, quiet countryside position with Pollenca and it's restaurants and shops on your doorstep.
Fabulous villa, stunning location.
The pictures here really don't do this place justice. Which meant we were pleasantly surprised when we finally found the right entrance from the road and arrived at the Villa.
The first big surprise was the Villa itself and how beautifully laid out it was. The centre-piece is a large courtyard, surrounded by the rooms of the house, with the main bedroom in a mini tower (with great views). The atmosphere is bright, airy and modern. The landscaping and outdoor areas are excellent and the whole thing blends into the landscape well.
The other surprise was location. It was just so tranquil and rustic. We got the full-on experience of the stunning Pollensa valley and all the sights, sounds and smells assosciated with it. We particularly enjoyed the bird-song, cicacdas, frogs from the frog pond, sheep bells, an astmatic cock crowing.
For me these were the things that set this place apart.
The practicalities of staying there were fine, we were close to Pollensa, the beach and shops. The kitchen was well equipped with very modern high quailty appliances. It had a TV, stereo and wifi but this is what we came here to get away from so they remained un-tested. The pool and outdoor terraces were great
Overall a very postive experience. We will be back.
Soeben zurück aus dem sonnigen Mallorca. Das Wetter hat uns nicht enttäuscht. Die Finca schon. Das Positive ist, die Finca ist riesig und es hat Platz für viele Leute; auch ist sie sehr zentral gelegen und man ist mit einem Mietwagen sehr schnell zum einkaufen oder am Meer. Auch ist die Finca, der Innenhof (wunderschön) und vorallem der Pool praktisch uneinsehbar. Die Strassennähe bedeutet aber auch, dass der Verkehrslärm der Hauptstrasse konstant da ist. Leider haben wir aufgrund der Bilder mehr erwartet. Die Finca wird leider schlecht gepflegt. Wir fanden noch Speisereste vom Vormieter auf dem Boden.. Viele Wasserhähnen sind so stark verkalkt, dass praktisch kein Duschen möglich ist oder man sich wie unter einem Hochdruckreiniger fühlt (Gartendusche). Der Aussenwhirlpool funktioniert nur kalt und nur zwei, drei von den unteren Düsen. Also unbrauchbar. Als wir die Whirlwanne innen benutzen wollten, kamen erst algenartige Dinge aus der Leitung, danach eine braune Suppe. Radio hatte kein Empfang. Wifi-Code musste angefragt werden, da null und nix an irgendwelchen Beschreibungen rumliegt. Auch war das Allereinzige was wir vorfanden, ein paar Rollen Toilettenpapier. Wer hier irgendein Abwaschmittel oder gar Abwaschlappen oder Gewürze und dergleichen erwartet, ist fehl am Platz. Ob die Wi funktioniert konnte nicht getestet werden, da eh keine Spiele da sind. Es muss gesagt werden, dass die angepriesenen Haushaltsgeräte und die Klimaanlage wunderbar funktionierten. In der Küche war Geschirr und Pfannen für 8 Leute, jedoch praktisch keine Kochkellen und das Ganze halt alles etwas spartanisch. Wir habe schon etliche Fincas angemietet, dies ist jedoch die Einzige, welche wir bestimmt nicht mehr anmieten werden, da das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis absolut nicht stimmt und man spürt, dass da alles eher lieblos gepflegt wird. Der gezeigte Seerosenteich ist heute noch ein rosenloser Tümpel, aber man kann da zumindest ein paar Frösche beobachten.Gesagt werden muss auch, dass das nur eine Finca für Leute mit super Schlaf ist. Die Betten sind ok, jedoch schreit der Hahn in der Nachbarschaft ca. ab 4.00 morgens und stimmt somit alle anderen Hähne der Nachbarschaft in ein fröhliches Morgenkonzert ein. Wir fanden es auch störend, dass ohne eine Vorwarnung oder Anmeldung, eines Tages einfach 2 Damen die Tür aufgeschlossen haben, mir nichts Dir nichts reingelaufen sind und die Frottierwäsche ausgewechselt haben.... Wir hoffen, bei der nächsten Finca auf mehr Glück..
