We have just returned from a fantastic four-night stay at Villa ES Barranc Vell. The house itself is absolutely stunning. So much thought has clearly gone into the decor and layout of the property which looks as if it's only just been restored. The inside and outside are pristine. The views are breathtaking as well as the grounds of the house. The pool area is great with it's own fridge and toilet.
Since our first inquiry, Irene has been helpful and quick to respond and she organized everything for us, from the airport transfers, our shopping, and even recommended restaurants for a night in Palma. She also organized for her chef Juan Antonio to come in and cook for us one night and the food was delicious. A must if you are staying there. I really couldn't fault the house or our stay in any way. I would recommend a stay at Villa Es Barranc Vell to anyone looking for a luxury break or holiday.
Back home in Sweden after a lovely long weekend in this amazing house. Eight long time friends had a splendid time relaxing by the pool and cooking great food in the beautiful kitchen. There are a lot of places to sit and catch the sun whatever time it is. Irene is a warm and friendly person genuinely interested in having our stay as pleasant as possible. I would not be surprised if we put in a request to rent the house really soon again.
Excellent villa with delightful designed furniture and wonderful decoration. Very spacious rooms and nicely designed bathrooms (towels are provided). Delicious beds with good pillows and soft sheets. The owners may be rightfully proud to be on the cover of Interiores (2014), a well known Spanish magazine about interior design. We were a party of eight, but the villa is certainly big enough for 12 adults.
At the time we were there, it was exceptionally cold in Mallorca (5 degrees celcius), but the villa was very comfortably warm thanks to the floor heating and two very nice wood stoves.
Palma is a 15 minutes' drive away. There is a good bakery and supermarket in Son Ferriol, a short ten minutes' drive from the villa. Irene, our pretty CEO and host, is very friendly, and helpful. She lives next door on the same property. Financially no surprises, no annoying extras, everything was included. Since we were there in December, we could not fully benefit from the beautiful pool area. But this gives us a good reason to come back!
There are no words to describe this place. It has been so thoughtfully created by Irene and is breathtakingly beautiful. We had the best stay and we are already looking for dates to come back. You will not be disappointed!
It was a great stay at Villa Es Barranc Vell, Irene was a very warm and friendly host. The house was fantastic. I really recommend this place for a vacation with friends or family.
Irene's Villa is for sure a great location. It is as beautiful as shown on the pictures. We spent there a week with 12 people and had a very good time. Irene was helpful whenever needed, she got us a taxi, or made restaurant reservation, she was the perfect host. The place is perfect to relax at the pool or make party with loud music, because there is no one around to disturb. We highly recommend this place.
Irene is very smart, attentive, and friendly. The villa is really nice, well equipped, design oriented, and located on a beautiful property. Everything is in line with the description. Even, the property is close to the airport, it is absolutely recommendable.
Last summer I celebrated my birthday party in Es Barranc Vell and it turn out to be a great decision! I was searching for a different and surprising event and I never expected to be so funny and pleasant. We did a barbecue, had some drinks in the swimming pool, and went for a walk in the field under the moonlight. It was simply a magic night. I am lucky to know this villa, since I was a child and I have had the pleasure to see how it has evolved over the years.
Its exceptional location in the midst of nature evokes the peace and serenity we all need sometime. As an architect, I found very interesting how the surrounding is integrated within the house so that the visitor never loses this deep contact with nature. Spaces are designed with great sensitivity, playing on the simultaneous contrast between rustic materials, like stone and other more innovative such as corten steel. Indeed, I highly recommend to everyone to get lost in this natural paradise.
Excellent from start to finish! Both Bernat and Irene responded very quickly and positively. Once we reached the villa Irene was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. She booked taxis for our travel, did a food shop of items we'd requested before we arrived and even helped us find the right channel to watch the world cup. The villa is the most amazing place I have ever stayed with its tastefully and thoughtfully decorated with beautiful pieces of art hung on almost every wall.
The poolside area has an excellent barbecue, a fridge, many sun loungers, and a stunning view. It's only a very short drive from Palma and the beaches, which were both lovely and not to far from Magaluf which was fun I would recommend this place highly to any big group and hope to go back there myself someday!
