House with many extras sleeping 9 people
The house is a typical old farmhouse with 1 meter thick stone walls, with the exception that when renovating we dug more then a meter under the house, adding damp proofing and under floor heating.
We have a separate laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board as well as ample cupboards.
The kitchen, lounge and dining room are very open plan. There is also a separate large room on the ground floor with a pool table and a complete fitness gym.
The kitchen is designed for a serious cook and contains all sorts of appliances and a 6 burner hob, as well as two ovens.
At the top of the stairs is a small lounge. Here there is a large flat screen T.V. with all free-view channels plus all BBC channels. (There is a smaller version of this in the kitchen as well).
Bedroom 4 leads off this sitting area. A hallway leads to bedrooms 1, 2 and 3 as well as the main bathroom. Also off this is another brighter lounge area through which you pass to reach the bedroom 5
This house is suitable for winter or summer let. It has full central heating - radiators upstairs and both under floor heating and a wood burning stove downstairs, although the wood burning stove is sufficient. Air conditioning we have never required as the house is very well insulated and the thick walls keep it cool in summer. If necessary a portable unit is available.
The house is suitable for small children as the stairs are gated at the bottom and an optional blockade can be added at the top.
The staircase is a large spiral oak stair.

Beautiful accommodation and great hosts
We had a fantastic time at Son Barrina, which is a superbly equipped, stylish, yet quirky, converted farmhouse with great facilities and a few surprises (e.g. tortoise family in the garden). We really chose the farm for its size (2 families of 5) and for its facilities, but we got so much more out of it than the gym, tablle tennis, pool table and really refreshing pool - all of which the kids and the adults thoroughly enjoyed.. However, there was also the huge kitchen, lovely patio areas, quiet spots throughout and well appointed living and sleeping areas. The owners, Connie and Brendan, were great hosts, who were very welcoming and really went out of their way to make our stay as smoth and relaxing as possible. We had a great holiday and would love to make it a regular trip.
Old World Charm and Pace
We were so fortunate to have found this elegant retreat tucked away in the interior of the island, where you get a feel for what Mallorca must have been like in centuries past. Set on an organic farm with a shop that has all you need for a healthy sustenance during your stay, Son Barrina's main house where we stayed had all the modern conveniences we could ask for, and everything was newly restored. I marvelled at the foot thick stone walls that kept the house cool. In the evening we took a dip in the cistern, an Olympic size bathing pool used for irrigation but which has no salt or chemicals. My only regret was that I was shooting a documentary on island and only could spend part of my days there. An unforgettable experience. And the hosts are open and generous with their help.
Familie Heuer, Hamburg
Ideal für einen Familienurlaub - unsere zweijährige Tochter hat jeden Winkel der Farm erkundet. Endlich einmal stimmen hier Komfort und Kinderfreundlichkeit! Das Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und eine interessante Mischung aus modernen und ursprünglichen Elementen.Das Gelände ist wunderschön eingewachsen - hier erlebt man das authentische Mallorca, genießt das Landleben und ist doch zentral und jeder Punkt der Insel in 30- 45 Minuten erreichbar. Der Kinderspielplatz ist liebevoll gestaltet mit einem eigenen kleinen Spielhaus aus Stein (!) für die Kleinen. Wir haben jeden Tag unseres Urlaubs genossen und wollten gar nicht abreisen. Es ist wirklich von Herzen zu empfehlen und wir werden definitiv wiederkommen!
Danke, für einen wunderbaren Urlaub (Feb `12) in ihrem einladenden Gutshaus. Wir konnte wirklich entspannen. Die Betten waren sehr angenehm. Das Haus ist viel besser ausgestattet als alle anderen Ferienhäuser in denen wir waren. Die Besitzer sind freundlich und sehr hilfreich.
Besonders mochten wir die grosse Auswahl an Freizeitbeschäftigungen die im Haus zur Verfügung stehen. Ich konnte Billard spielen, mit den Kindern Tischtennis und wenn ich ausruhen wollte gab es reichlich Spielzeuge, Spiele, Play Station, Wii etc.
Die Farm ist sehr zentral gelegen und ist daher ein guter Startplatz für alle möglichen Ausflüge und Wanderungen. Schön wieder auf den Hof zurückzukehren weit genug entfernt vom Turistengetümmel. Der Hof ist sehr ländlich gelegen und friedlich und mit schönen Bergblicken.
Der Bio-Laden ist als würde man in Deutschland sein, alles erhältlich und die Besitzer waren stets bereit uns zu helfen wenn mal etwas fehlte. Das Haus ist komplett umzäunt und die Kundschaft des Ladens störte uns überhaupt nicht. (Der Laden ist 3 Tage die Woche geöffnet)
Es war ein grossartiger Urlaub und wir kommen zurück
Relaxing a beautiful - a good winter stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. This finca is exceptionally well equipped and maintained – almost a home away from home. It has lots of space, is clean and it was very warm and cosy with a brilliant fire place and central heating.
There are spaces for privacy, perfect for a couple of families – you are not on top of each other!
The owners are friendly and very helpful, there if you need them but completely unobtrusive. It is a fantastic place for children – satellite TV, internet, computer, big selection of Wii games and console, pool table, table tennis, full gym, books, toys and games for all the family. The outside space is private and really made for relaxing. The fire pit is exceptional and the was very willing to help set up a fire as needed.
Beds are all very comfortable and in good condition. The central position is fantastic for getting around the island and the road to the beautiful mountains are perfect and very close.
All together a perfect stay and we all look forward to return in the future!
Activity and Interests
Son Barrina is a working organic farm. It boasts the largest and one of the oldest organic shops on the island, stocking products from England and Germany as well as the bio-dynamically grown products from the farm. It is open to the public Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings.
Our fresh water reservoir (approx. 12 m x 27 m x 4 m) is like swimming in a lake. The reservoir is not suitable for non-swimmers being deep all over, but there is nothing more refreshing then swimming in clean water that contains no chemicals, nor any salt. The reservoir is only open to us and our rental guests. House areas are kept totally private from the shop and farm areas.
Llubi train station is a 15 min walk down a very quiet lane from the farm. The surrounding area is agricultural and very peaceful (although train and road noises can be heard when outside).
