Bed linen is changed weekly, and towels are changed twice weekly. Pool towels are provided, (Please bring your own for the beach).

We are amongst the most competitively priced private rentals in the area, but you will find no cut backs in service or facilities, and our apartments are of the highest standard anywhere, guests have tremendous fun, and you will still get your new laid eggs for breakfast regardless of our bargain prices!!

We are always open to longer bookings, especially long term winter lets (gardening optional). And we can be very flexible so just pick the best flights to suit you and we will fit in with your plans. Send us an enquiry email and we guarantee you a reply within a couple of hours no matter how busy we are and promise you a friendly & helpful service at all times.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second week in Mallorca and was definitely our favoured accommodation. The facilities are fantastic and we have never had such a welcome pack of food and provisions. We didn't need to shop for several days! The tranquility of Can Frare is wonderful and it is nice that you can socialise or remain independent when you like. Evenings were good fun with a few drinks and plenty of talk and laughs in the lounge area by the pool. Guy is a generous, helpful host and we thank all those there for their attention to detail. We were in the Green room and loved our own little home - it is so much more than a room! If we come back to Mallorca this is where we will stay. The surroundings and the resident animals all helped to make it a relaxing and interesting place to be. We loved it. Thankyou so much. Good luck on your travels with Molly if you get your little caravan Guy

A gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks here. Guy was the perfect host, making us feel immediately at home, inviting us to be as sociable or as independent as we wanted to be. Your are in deepest, most rural, Mallorca but still no more than thirty minutes away from most of the best beaches in the south and east of the island. Idyllic.

Cared for in every detail

  • 5 of 5

Guy gave us a wonderful Welcome at Can Frare, the welcome pack provided is the best! It is an indicator of Can Frare's thoughtful host. The property is peaceful and has a relaxed atmosphere. You can be socialbe if you want to be, and we really enjoyed going for meals with our fellow guests. It is close to Palma, which is well worth a days visit. There are many wonderful beaches and great wildlife in the local area. Would highly recommend this country retreat.

Perfect relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the yellow apartment - beautifully decorated with it's own roof terrace. A lovely peaceful place to stay - beautiful old farmhouse, lovely pool and gardens.

A great welcome from Guy who is an exceptional host, providing a generous welcome pack and local restaurant recommendations. We enjoyed the evening sunsets and the magical garden at night time.

Sadly we only stayed three nights but will have to come back!

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

it is our last night here and the best I can say is I wish we could stay here for ever. The place is heaven , the accommodation is perfect, the hospitality is second to none, Guy the owner is brilliant, a perfect host, a gentleman and you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. Everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday is provided. The only negative is you have to leave. Wish we could stay forever. You can have total peace but you also have access to the Internet, television is excellent through sky free view and wfi is great but above everything you have peace. Cannot recommend it more highly.

Owner's Response: We are so thrilled by your wonderful comments, and our most efficient reviewer to date - leaving it whilst still with us! We are sorry to see all our guests leave, and so truly grateful for your kind words of praise as confirmation that we are getting it right. An honour and a pleasure to have you with us, if only briefly, we hope the time in between your next stay with us is brief as well! All the best from Guy and all at Can Frare <3

Holiday in Can Frare

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Can Frare. The old farmhouse is rustic, situated in a tranquil spot in the countryside and was lovely to return to after a hectic day. A car is necessary as it is a good 20 minute run to the nearest town. The apartment was very clean and prettily furnished with an overgenerous welcome pack in the fridge and fresh eggs from the hens every day. I would say this holiday would suit guests looking for something quiet, off the beaten track, not at all 'touristy', who love the countryside and enjoy seeking out the real Mallorca. We found some great restaurants at Ses Salinas and Santanyi, and a good beach at Es Trenc. We also visited the cactus gardens, Palma and a historic country house which was wonderful.

Car hire is probably the easiest for staying at this beautiful rural property, but there is a bus service from the airport to the village of Porreres nearby, and the owner will happily collect you from there by special arrangement if you would prefer not to drive. The airport is approximately 30 mins away. Please email if you want to know more. The bikes are available to use at any time during your stay and there is no charge for this.

Each of these villages are between 5 and 10 minutes drive. Please note that to help our guests navigate during their holiday and make the most of the area, we will provide you (free of charge) with a satellite navigation system for the duration of your stay.

Further Details:

Each local village has numerous supermarkets, banks with cashpoints, street cafes, restaurants and bars, some of which are very well renowned, as well as the lively, weekly street markets.
