Albrecht Molsberger purchased this chateau / country house in 1995
We travelled a lot, and at one of the most beautiful coasts of Europe, we found this finca - a fantastic view over the Tramuntana mountains, the sea and the small village Banyalbufar.
If you wish, it can be an ideal place to unwind, relax, sunbathe. A village with restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. And if you wish, you can be in the nearest major city in 10 minutes and in Palma in just over 30 minutes.
It's hard to overstate the sheer fabulousness of this property. The description by the owner in no way disappoints or exaggerates the reality. The house is beautiful - spacious, tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, and with a fully-equipped large kitchen. There's a gorgeous view from every room. Outside, the garden is wonderfully landscaped and maintained. The location is idyllic - perched up on a hill overlooking a gorgeous bay and the beautiful old town. It's perfectly peaceful and quiet with lots of perfect places to sit and chat or enjoy a book, inside and out. Exploring Mallorca, especially the spectacular northwest coast, is very easy from Banyalbufar and a day trip into Palma is easy. Tony met us on arrival, providing the key and all the information we needed for our stay. Albrecht, the owner, was extremely helpful and responsive. It's the perfect place to stay in Mallorca!
Pasamos una semana excelente en esta finca mallorqui que ofrece todas las comodidades necesarias para una familia grande. Las vistas al mar y los atardeceres son espectaculares. Totalmente recomendable.
We spent a wonderful week in this typical finca that offers all the necessary comforts for a large familay. The views to the ocean and sunsets were simply spectacular. Totally recommendable.
We arrived at the finca after travelling for 16 hours, but the caretaker did not know who we were, or how long we were staying. He stated the owner had not informed him about our stay. This was an unprofessional start to a trip to be confronted with after flying all the way from New York. Further, due to the caretaker not expecting us this may explain why there were dirty used utensils in the kitchen, and a used Nespresso machine.
The beds are old, and the mattresses felt like it too. I got bitten badly every night and had to keep changing rooms. Upon returning to the UK I saw my Dr who believes the bites were from bed bugs. The rooms are hot and there is no air conditioning or fans, so a perfect breeding habitat for bed bugs. There are 5 bedrooms though only 2 have mosquito nets. I even got bitten in one of the beds with a net.
Several light bulbs did not work and there were broken lamps. We managed to fix some of them, but this should be done before our arrival. There were shutters which banged in the night due to broken hinges. We had 3 continuous nights of being woken-up and having to go around the building in the night trying to fix them. So no restful sleep for us. We were not on vacation to mend the property for the owner.
There’s a long steep twisting drive up to the house, and not a single driveway light worked. Extra caution is advised at night because you are driving in pitch black. All lights should be fixed before guests arrive.
The owner has not considered leaving a manual in the finca written in any language so that people can operate the TV/DVD/music system. Most home owners have the sense to make a manual describing how things work, which remotes to use for the TV, etc. The only thing we could use was the WIFI. It was a complete waste of time bringing our own DVD’s.
We were informed the pool would be cleaned most days. It was only cleaned on the morning we left.
Despite writing to the owner a few days before going to the finca asking for additional information regards getting to the finca and car hire, I never got an answer.
From the outside this is a lovely attractive home. But once inside the finca it is very basic, and it does not function properly. And the very first thing you see when entering the home is gym equipment. Odd!
If this had been a hotel we would have definitely checked-out early.
I have since communicated with the owner of the finca regards all these issues, but their response has been unsatisfactory.
The Villa was wonderful. We would stay here again and have recommended it to our friends. It has terrific views of the ocean, outstanding gardens and architecture. It is very private and quiet. It was furnished very nicely and was immaculate. It has wonderful art, which we appreciated. We have wonderful memories of our stay here. Dr. J. Thurber
Die sehr schöne, gut ausgestattete und gepflegte Finca liegt über dem Dorf Banyalbufar. Von den verschiedenen sonnenüberfluteten Terrassen der Finca hat man einen herrlichen Blick über die Bucht von Banyalbufar. Die Schlafzimmer sind gross und es gibt mehrere Badezimmer. Das Grundstück ist wunderschön angelegt. Der Pool ist ebenfalls sehr gepflegt und groß. Wir waren die letzte Oktoberwoche dort und waren vollauf begeistert von dieser Finca und dem Ort. Nachts kann es mitunter zu sehr starkem Wind kommen, das ist nichts für schwache Nerven.
Wir waren Ende September Gast in der Finca. Von dem ersten Kontakt mit Tony (housekeeper) bis zur Abreise hatten wir (4 Erwachsene und ein Kind) eine wunderschöne Zeit in einem Anwesen welches exakt zur FeWo-Beschreibung passt! Von der Ausstattung bis hin zur Gestaltung der Außenanlagen ist bei diesem Objekt alles sehr gut geplant und hergerichtet, top!!!
Danke für die schönen Tage!
