Sitting in five acres of mature grounds surrounded by some of the most tranquil, unspoilt countryside to be found anywhere in Mallorca this beautifully refurbished, traditional farmhouse is an absolute gem! One of those ‘hidden secrets’ only the locals ever seem to know about, the Campanet Valley is an idyllic spot; a once visited, never forgotten place where countless gorgeous views can be enjoyed in all directions across an unblemished rural landscape backed by pine forests and craggy hillsides. As a location in which to rest, refuel and recharge, Finca Frölich certainly ranks with our best… and (perhaps best of all?) the many excellent restaurants and amenities of Roman Pollensa as well as several gorgeous sandy beaches are all easily reached in a drive of about 15 minutes.
It is so easy to see why the charming owners of Finca Frölich fell in love with the property on first sight, immediately relocating with their family from Norway to personally oversee a meticulous refurbishment. Their thoughtful planning and obvious respect for the property’s illustrious farming past has resulted in a gracious and stylish residence whose sleek interior lines, modern comforts and contemporary, minimalist décor have been imaginatively combined with numerous characterful features from a bygone era.
Entrance steps in the hallway are inset with local stone to noticeable effect – remaining flat yet appearing cobbled. Other floors feature polished stone or local tiles, sloping ceilings of substantial wooden beams grace many rooms and there is absolutely no shortage of living space with generous proportions throughout. Groups of friends and sharing families, particularly those with older siblings, will surely appreciate the flexibility (and additional privacy) created by having a self-contained suite accessed directly from the entrance hall.
Extensive open and shaded terracing provides the perfect encouragement for al fresco living, a large covered dining terrace perhaps being the jewel in the crown. Bordering the house are lawned grounds containing a vast selection of indigenous plants, mature fir and fruit trees. Just across the lawn the good size private pool, considerately tiled in green to ensure harmony with the bucolic surroundings, offers a sunshine-filled rural oasis of gentle birdsong from which, we guarantee, it will be difficult to stir.
Lower profile than some of the island’s attractions but still a fascinating visit recommended for all ages, the nearby caves (3km) are regularly open to the public while the sleepy village of Campanet itself, where excellent amenities can be found, is just 1.5km further. Cycling, jogging or just strolling around the valley and zig-zagging country lanes are simple pleasures that will provide a wealth of memories.
Please note: *The single bed in the principal double bedroom can be prepared on request – please ask at time of booking. The owners of Finca Frölich respectfully request that guests do not smoke inside the property.
