Finca Cuxach is a beautiful old stone farmhouse in one of Pollenca s most prestigious locations, La Font - in lovely countryside outside the old town. The house has been lovingly restored by the owners Cayetana and Joan and is the ideal family hideaway. It is a quiet and private place with tropical gardens surrounding the swimming pool and a gated driveway.
Finca Cuxach has many original Mallorcan features such as whitewashed walls and beamed ceilings, as well as modern facilities. The entrance hall leads into an open-plan living and dining room, with a traditional stone fireplace, circular mahogany dining table and satellite television. The neat kitchen has appliances including a microwave, a fridge-freezer and a breakfast bar. There is also a separate laundry room. Also on the ground floor are two of the bedrooms, a twin and a double, both with sunny views of the garden. They have antique Mallorcan furniture, terracotta-tiled floors and plenty of storage in fitted wardrobes. These bedrooms share a bathroom with a bath and a shower. A staircase leads to the impressive master bedroom area which takes up the whole of the upper floor. It has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower, a dressing room area, and views over the gardens and pool.
The gardens are lush and colourful with views of the Boquer mountains. In spring the gardens are full of pink scented blossom and butterflies. In the orchard, in summer, you can pick oranges and lemons, cherries and avocados. Tall palm trees shade the lawns around the pool. A covered stone terrace runs along the pool-side of the house, with garden furniture, a table-tennis table and stone barbecue. This is the perfect all-day place for shading from the sun and eating outside. The pool is also floodlit at night which is ideal for evening on the terrace relaxing.
Finca Cuxach is a fantastic house which combines traditional Mallorcan style with modern design and all in beautiful surroundings. It has central heating for early and late-season bookings. Restaurants and shops are within 25 minutes walk and just a 2-minute drive away, and the beach is only a 5-minute drive.
If air conditioning is provided this will be set on a timer between the hours of 18.30hrs – 08.00 hours.
During the winter months extra costs for heating will be required, please enquire for details.
Linens changed once per week as well as a midweek towel change and light clean.
Area beautiful, as is the Finca though the facilities are dated and the beds very uncomfortable, linen could be of a better quality too.
Negatives: no welcome pack (thought this was standard in self catering?), beds uncomfortable, zero information on any appliance at the Finca or local arrangements for waste disposal, dated equipment, crockery unclean, parts of the Finca unclean, no wifi for 3 days (took 2 calls to sort), no response from travelopo about specifics, no info pack at all or areas recommended to visit
Positives: beautiful area once exhaustive directions followed (could simplify), property grounds fantastic, lovely pool although unheated, close to both Pollensa and Alcudia, Finca very private despite properties to both sides on boundary
Localities are within easy driving reach, recommend: visit to Mallorcan Black Eagle Sanctuary, Pollensa Market (Sunday), Alcudia and Pollensa Ports, Campanete, Soller is stunning! Lots to see
Overall an ok holiday but expected higher standard within having read other reviews. Won't be booking again
