o celebrate a Golden and nearly Golden (49 years!) Anniversary with our relatives, we decided to venture to somewhere a little more exotic than South Wales and chose Mallorca. After about a month of searching we came across Finca Bona Vista and got just the right feeling. All the main bedrooms on the lower level, a bathroom\shower room for each of us (3 couples), lovely gardens, pool, near nice restaurants, a few supermarkets, about 1km to a nice beach, caring owners, etc. From the moment we arrived we knew we'd made the right choice. The first couple of days were rainy but gave us an opportunity to see some of the islands beautiful scenery. Ron and Sheila were very helpful with arranging a could of things to make it a little easier for my Uncle who has a few mobility issues (a chair with arms to watch the TV, a loo seat extender, wheelchair) nothing seemed too much trouble. Ron also brought along a few gifts for the anniversary which was eaten and drunk in no time!
The Finca and grounds has everything to make life during the week fun and enjoyable - Table tennis, fantastic BBQ area, great kitchen (cooked constantly and used about 30 lemons in my new beetroot chutney recipe)
When the sun came out on day 3, we decamped to the beautiful pool area and listened to music, played games, talked, and drank, and ate. The local supermarkets have great fish counters which put our own island to shame.
We ventured out from the lovely finca 1 night to the local restaurant which Ron will tell you about. If your lucky you'll make the dinner/dance which happens fortnightly where you can dance and sing with with the chef and mingle with the locals.
I think to sum up the stay it was very 'right' from the very start and I don't think you will be disappointed. It's a little remote if you want to be in the middle of things, but a 15 minute walk takes you to the centre of Ca'n Picafort. Personally, I felt that was more of the Fincas strength. Thanks very much again, Ron and Sheila. I hope to see you again. John and family
