Pool, Finca Es Castell

Finca Es Castell is a paragon of rustic chic, a riotous tumble of stone buildings making up a little 12 room hotel that burrows itself into the hillside. Located at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, Es Castell is surrounded by by acres of olive, orange, lemon, fig and almond trees. This is an area where agriculture and tourism live in harmony, exemplified by Es Castell itself which is part of an estate extending to 750 acres.

Everything about this hotel evokes the tradition of life in this part of Mallorca, the cobbled patio, the mediaeval well, the old olive press. On a balmy evening subtly lit by lamps and candles, all this becomes a rural idyll. More modern features come in the form of the swimming pool, but here too it is surrounded by nature and immersed in the sound of birdsong and cicadas. Just serve yourself a drink from the honesty bar and settle back to enjoy the view. Indoors too, there is lots of space to relax, with the quiet lounge for reading or contemplation set behind the dining room.

The eleven double rooms and one junior suite are all individual, and decorated in a tradition Mallorcan style. Every room has heating, air-conditioning and a fan to be comfortable whatever the time of year and there is a magnificent view of some of the countryside around. As a rule, there is no TV or telephone (relaaaaax......) but the hotel can provide a television set and a choice of 300 DVD films if requested.

The peaceful heartland of northern Mallorca is the perfect location for a holiday to relax. Leave the hustle and bustle to someone else. In the mountains and villages and countryside you can forget you are on an island, even though Es Castell is but a short drive from some of the island's most beautiful beaches. Should you wish to venture a little further, the colourful city of Palma is a mere 40 minutes by car.

Some feedback after a lovely week in Mallorca. We booked 3 nights at Son Jorbo and 4 at Es Castell. Both hotels are very well-run, set in pretty surroundings and serve delicious breakfasts and where applicable, evening menus.
It may be worth noting that Es Castell, although sophisticated, still retains the feel and looks of a mountain farm. Unsuitable for anyone using a walking- stick for instance as the huge cobble- stones are tricky. Peaceful and charming, high in the mountains with vast views over the island, it is a long way from a village.
Es Castell is a fantastic finca, located in a very isolated area, away from the hustle and bustle. James, the owner, is very hospitable and willing to help out in every way. It is in ideal situation if you require just peace and quiet and relaxation. The pool at this time of year, is obviously really cool... so was not able to "sample it".

As the finca is an old 13th century building, it is unique. However, I would mention, that it is not really suitable for those with mobililty or walking difficulties. The cobble stones are obviously uneven, and the steps also. You have to be very careful and watch how and where you are walking. Would certainly return for a "chill out" holiday.
The hotel was everything described - the food was excellent we ate in for the whole of our stay, the rooms were very comfortable and extremely well equipped. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
Es Castell was beautifully located with well maintained grounds & excellent breakfasts served in a very friendly & efficient manner. Our room was comfortable & had lovely views of the area. Unfortunately, the toilet did not function & could not be repaired in the time that we were at the hotel. We were offered another room on our second night ( which we declined) & were given free dinner & wine on that night as recompense. Hence, we were very satisfied with the way in which this difficulty was managed & it did not detract from our overall pleasurable experience.
Absolutely splendid holiday, first time we have been so satisfied with what we arrived at. Excellent food and service.
We had a fantastic time the perfect place to relax and unwind in an absolutely beautiful setting.The food/service/rooms were excellent nothing too much trouble, the walks around the finca were very varied suitabe for all abilities,the directions to the finca excellent although quite remote easy to find. We are definately returning next year!
Truly a magnificent charming place run by an amazing Man.
We had a wonderful peaceful 16 day stay at Es Castell, in Binibona Mallorca. The room and private terrace were most comfortable plus breakfast and dinner served on the upper terrace were a delight. Staying for 16 days one would think that our dinner menus might have been repeated at some point, but that wasn't the case and it's fair to say that the food was excellent - a wonderful holiday.
We were at Finca Es Castell Majorca for a one week break 5 - 9 May. Having stayed at Little Hotels properties before we had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The place is superb in a lovely setting. The website description did not flatter in any way, in fact it is difficult to put the ambience into words that truly describe it accurately. The staff match this with their friendly, professional service yet there is personal feedom as well. A great combination. We would return there.
A truly wonderful stay - thank you so much.
