We had a truly wonderful time staying at Birgit's.
She is a fantastic person...very earthy and laid back, who always made us feel so relaxed and welcome. Birgit has a dog, 2 cats, 2 horses and 8 chickens, we were welcome to use the daily fresh eggs whenever we wanted :-)
It was so lovely and calming to have these beautiful and friendly animals around us.
The house is a very cosy, traditional stone built farmer's 'Finca'. Surrounded by absolutely gorgeous views of the Mallorcan rural landscape with the mountains in the distance, there are lots of pine and fig trees with make the air smell amazing. There are fabulous views of the sunset, sitting outside in the garden.
Birgit has decorated the inside in a lovely simple, rustic style which really suits the environment. There is everything you need in the house - good kitchen, bathroom and comfy room with lots of storage space for clothes.
Because it's all stone, it feels lovely and cool inside when it's hot outside.
The location is about 4 kilometers inland from C'an Picafort.
When we first arrived, Birgit very kindly picked us up from Sa Pobla train station [50 minutes from Palma] We then rented bicycles for the remainder of our stay and it only took 20 minutes to get into Ca'n Picafort or to our favourite beach Muro [25 mins].
Would be perfect if you have a car but if you're up for cycling, then it really is close enough to town for bus links, shops and restaurants etc.
We were so sad to say goodbye to Birgit and her animals!
If you want a really chilled out experience, away from touristy blandness, this is the ideal place to stay. It's extremely good value for money. To really be in the proper Mallorcan landscape in all it's Mediterranean beauty.
I strongly recommend Birgit's place as a great Airbnb experience!
