About Finca Es Rasquells
The fincas reviews describe the house and its location perfectly
The setting of the villa is so peaceful and quiet, inside the villa lots of space for everyone as well as the outside seating area and bbq area was fantastic. Supermarket within 10 mins of the villa on foot which stocks everything you will need for your stay, the walk into Binissalem town is roughly 15 mins we found this very quiet during the day but a lovely few restaurants for dining out in the evening with local entertainment. Train station within 15/20 min walk is fantastic to get to palma, Inca etc and very very reasonable. Overall we had a fantastic time. Leigh P
The villa is really lovely and a great place to escape from the daily grind. Takes about 10 mins or so to walk into the village and there are quite a few places to eat. There is a real sense of community in the village with the locals meeting up in the evening for dancing or a tapas night. We were made to feel very welcome. Marie S
