A beautiful old house but in need of a bit of tlc.
Make sure you read the small print when booking. It is written in German, that there is a €140 charge for using the hot tub. We booked through the English site and so did not note this, so this was disappointing.
The villa itself is a beautiful old house and the pictures do not do it justice. Since they were taken the garden has grown and you approach the house via a beautiful shrub lined drive. The grounds were huge and great for my children to explore and the house decorated beautifully (again changed for the better from the photos). We had an excellent first impression.
The villa itself, whilst beautiful, is in need of some tlc. The sauna did not work, a huge disappointment given this was one of the reasons we booked. Whilst there we had to report problems with the bath (the taps had seized and did not work) and the shower in the en suite which was leaking. The owner was brilliant and these were dealt with straight away with temporary fixes for our stay, but they need to be properly fixed longer term. The tap had a nail inserted to enable it to work. The house is so beautiful, that a new bathroom and a bit more love (missing crockery, chipped crockery, things a bit tired) and it would have been a perfect stay. We had a wonderful week there, it is in a fantastic location, the house is well equipped and if the faults we had were fixed and with a bit more tlc we would definitely return.
Wonderful finca in beautiful countryside
We have just returned from a very enjoyable holiday spent in this very spacious finca. The grounds and the swimming pool are large and it is extremely private. Electric gates make it very safe.
The property is well maintained and clean. The cleaners come mid week to change all the towels. It would be handy to have extra sheets so they could also be changed without having to wash them.
The owners were easy to deal with and gave quick response to any queries.
We found many restaurants within a few miles in Alcudia and Port D'Alcudia and on other evenings we cooked at the finca. The large barbecue is extremely handy with a big group of 8 people like ours. The stove in the kitchen is rather small and we found it easier to combine the two.
The real test of any holiday is whether you would like to return and we all felt we would.
Fantastic holiday at Can Villar
Our two families thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Can Villar, the villa is superb, great pool, hot tub, excellent facilities and lots for the kids to do.
All aspects of booking, arrival and departure went seamlessly, and we had no issues during our stay.
Set in a peaceful location, yet only 5 mins drive to Alcudia old town, we could have stayed there all Summer.
This Villa is at least as good as it's description, possibly better, we would recommend it to anyone and will hopefully return ourselves.
Did not live up to its reputation or advertised features
Quiet rural surroundings (except during works in neighbours properties), large space, comfortable beds, ample kitchenware, good television.
We had many problems with the electricity (power cut to kitchen and many rooms), poor heating (needed as it was quite cool - 15-18 degrees), spa worked properly for only for 4 days of our 10 day stay (and this was the reason we chose this property), kitchen flooded because of faulty washing machine, front gate opening mechanism failed on 2nd day, one shower head broke, the master bedroom shower was unusable as it floods the bathroom floor (poor design), one bedroom very drafty, poor kitchen lighting, large gas burner on stove did not work, poor supply of consumables upon arrival (toilet paper, kitchen roll, salt), many shutters were broken, lack of information explaining functioning of appliances, barbecue had no gas, and the property manager was not able to resolve many of these issues or took very long to do so. For a high class rental as this was advertised, we felt that the property was not well cared for and did not have a good response to problems during our rental. Based purely on the property and equipment, it could well merit 5 stars. However, based on the number of problems we encountered and the mediocre response to our complaints, it only merits 3 stars. We were told that they would try to fix many of the problems and that if we would rent in the future we would get a modest reduction. We did not think this an adequate response to our many and serious issues which affected our stay (a partial refund of our rent cost would have been welcome). Future renters should be aware of these issues and decide if they would affect their enjoyment. We enjoyed our visit to Mallorca and would gladly come back but we would try to find a place that has much fewer problems and has a truly high class level of comfort.
Wir sind nach wie vor etwas überrascht über die Schilderungen sowie über diese Bewertung unserer Finca fast ein halbes Jahr nach dem Aufenthalt, da wir bislang noch nie von derart Problemen unserer Mieter in unserem Haus gehört haben.
Leider haben wir diese Schilderungen erst nach Abreise der Gäste erhalten, so dass einige Punkte für uns nicht mehr wirklich zu verifizieren sind.
Wir bieten unseren Gästen an sich jederzeit im Falle von Fragen oder Bedienungsproblemen (Klimaanlage, Heizung, Jacuzzi) an unseren Verwalter zu wenden, der gerne mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht und alle Fragen beantwortet.
Nichts desto trotz sind wir immer offen für Anregungen und Verbesserungsvorschläge und setzen diese auch gerne um.
We all had an absolutely fantastic time, the villa was amazing!! Very pleased. Thankyou so much, would definately recommend to family and friends and would definately come back ourselves! We've been to Mallorca a few times now and we've always stayed in the plama area but I much preferred the north of the island visiting both pollensa and alcudia which were lovely. Many thanks again for renting your amazing villa. Hope to be in contact again soon for another amazing holiday to Mallorca.
Immer wieder gerne!
Wir haben 1 Woche auf der Finca verbacht und waren alle einstimmig begeistert.
Die Betreuung vor Ort ist einfach klasse! Schlüsselübergabe etc. alles gar kein Problem; lief einwandfrei. Auf Nachfrage wurde uns sogar der nächstgelegene Supermakt gezeigt. TOP!!!
Die Finca ist sauber und sehr gepflegt. Die Gegend ist ruhig. Die Lage zwischen den Dörfern perfekt und der schönste Strand Mallorca's (Strand von Alcudia) auch nur ein Katzensprung mit dem Auto entfernt.
Die Wegbeschreibung und der Weg zur Finca vom Flughafen/Palma ist sehr einfach und leicht zu finden.
Alles in allem war es eine schöne und entspannte Woche; der perfekte Urlaub!
Wir können jedem nur ans Herz legen diese Finca zu buchen, falls Euch Interesse an einem erholsamen, problemlosen und stressfreien Urlaub liegt.
Es wird auch nicht unser letztes mal dort gewesen sein :-)
