Sitting at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains in the little town of Lloseta, Petit Hotel Ca's Comte is extraordinary; nestled on the edge of the plaza between the Ayaman's Palace on one side and the church on the other.
Ca's Comte is the result of a painstaking restoration, carefully preserving the features and architectural details of it's 18th century origin. Built as a house for a noble Mallorcan family, it formed a part of the Ayamans Palace.
Within the massive stone walls is a terrace and inner patio where you will be transported back to an altogether less hurried way of life. From here too, you can reach the lounge and the restaurant, both typical examples of the Mallorcan patrician style. A fairly recent addition s the Spa & Wellness Centre, where you can pamper yourself with a jacuzzi, sauna, turkish bath, aromatic shower or massage.
The hotel has just fourteen rooms, nine of them junior suites with hydromassage-baths, and each providing all the modern amenities such as air-conditioning, television, computer, internet connection, hair-dryer and satellite television within a historic and stylish setting. One of the Superior Double rooms is specially adapted for a disabled guest.
Each afternoon, tea and cakes are served, and complementary liqueurs (traditional Mallorcan) are available to guests in the early evening.
The centre of Mallorca has traditionally been a wealthy area built on commerce and many crafts such as pottery, wine, weaving, shoe-making and glassware. This is the wealth that built such magnificent houses as Ca's Comte. You can still view a very different Mallorca here today, without ever being far from the attractions of the sea, the beaches and the mountains.
The whole world knows Mallorca and sometimes it seems that most of them go on holiday there. But once you have left the airport, you can leave the hordes behind. You won't want to miss the north-west coast where the mountains drop sharply into the sea. Nor the beautiful crystal-clear calas of the east coast. Nor even the large sandy beaches that abound. And when you've seen enough sea, take in the culture of a hundred different towns and villages, buy your souvenirs in the little craft markets of the out-of-the way places, and walk for miles amongst the mountain scenery. Located in the centre of the island and far from the busy resorts, Ca's Comte is lovely and the perfect base for exploring the island.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|Just to let you know we had a lovely holiday in Mallorca, although as in Marrakesh, we were rained on again! However, this did not spoil our holiday as I had gone prepared with my brolly. The plane was 45 mins late leaving Gerona due to fog at Palma, but as it is such a short flight it wasn't too bad. The car hire representative was there to meet us and take us to our car. Hubbie was most impressed as it was the new model Seat Ibiza.|
One thing I would like to say, is that you do not mention in your information about the hotel in Lloseta, that there is the railway station a few minutes walk down the road. We decided to let the train take the strain and go to Palma instead of using the car. The price of the return journey was a staggering 6 euro 20 cents for both of us, a lot less than we would have had to pay in car park charges, also saving us the hassle of driving in a busy town. The journey takes roughly 30 mins and there are two trains per hour.
The food in the hotel was very good. We had a paella one night, and it was the best we have had. Living in Spain we eat them quite often and this one was more of the meat and fish and less of the rice. Here we sometimes have more rice than anything else. So all in all, a very good holiday, thank you. The room was very good too, it was good to be able to watch BBC and ITV, normally we are only able to get BBC world news, CNN, or Euronews in Spanish hotels. Also appreciated was the tea and coffee making facilities, again, something not usually available in Spanish hotels.
We look forward to our next holiday, which we hope will not be in the too distant future.
