The word 'finca' means farmhouse and this one was magnificently restored by a Mallorcan architect and designer in 2008 as the 18th-century building had hitherto sat abandoned. Finca Son Gener lies towards the north-east of the island and its understated beauty and decor are unmistakable. Mallorca is not a big island so it is not too far from many towns that guests may want to visit, and yet it is perfectly isolated, a haven of tranquility. It is certainly perfectly located for golf lovers, with no fewer than four courses within a 15-minute drive.
Guests can choose to relax in the swimming pool, in the sauna, or by taking an indulgent hammam treatment. The building's facade looks spectacularly appealing thanks to the marés stone walls, lending it a luminosity under the brilliant blue Balearic sky.
The ten rooms are all junior suites, giving the guests luxurious space, with an individual decor and a private terrace for each. They also have king-size beds, television, telephone, air con, wi-fi internet access and minibar.
The decor is simple and attractive without being 'minimal' and owes this to the architect's efforts and the owners' astute selection of furniture. Finca Son Gener has definitely been restored to retain its farmhouse looks, but with the sensibility of great design.
At once both rural and refined, Finca Son Gener is a special experience for each and every guest.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|We stayed at Finca Cas Sant and Finca Son Gener in Mallorca - each had their very distinct character but both were really superb. The locations were idyllic, peaceful and relaxing, the service and facilities were extremely good, and all the people we met were really friendly and welcoming.|
Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|A piece of heaven on earth.|
|Once you're there, it is as if you're alone in the world. The only sounds you hear are the roosters and the sheeps' bells. Lots of things to do around and don't forget to ask the way for the great, almost private beach with a beautiful small village where you can have lunch nearby.
The food is so amazing that we have decided to eat at the hotel everyday. Home cooked meals by a small team of local talents with products from their own garden (lamb, gazpacho, incredible fish, lots of vegetables). They even took the time to cook a beautiful cake for my husband's birthday.
Even if the decoration is low key, it is very design and you can feel the influence of an architect behind these beautiful rooms lit in a special kind of way so it doesn't interfere with the peaceful environment. Very large bedrooms with terrace covered by an abundance of flowers. We had massages and I highly recommend it.
Leave the big resort towns and go to Finca Son Gener for an amazing experience! Josephine, Montreal
|Beautiful hotel. The epitome of laid-back luxury. Refined, but very casual. Excellent food. Loved that it has its own organic veggie garden. Violet, London|
