Sitting in the middle of almost 10 hectares in a San Rafel valley, you could say Can Lluc is smack bang in the centre of the island. I like to think of it as halfway to everywhere, cutting your traveling time in half on the way to beaches, bars, shops and clubs.
Every room is different within the converted old finca (translating to farmhouse), some featuring Jacuzzis, power showers, romantic canopied beds, others with private terraces and many with beautiful stone-wall detailing and rustic wooden ceilings staying true to the building’s heritage. I opted for the more modern apartment-style suite however, because I’m a fan of shiny new hotels, and I’m happy to say it felt like I was living in a scaled down version of a huge Ibiza villa, with its king-size bed, chic decor and mod cons. For more romance though, I’d choose rustic next time.
Can Lluc has been in the Prat family since the turn of the century, and despite its deluxe refurbishment, you still get the feeling of lounging around in someone’s private villa. The reception area includes a WiFi zone plus a baggage room and separate bathroom with shower; should you need to check out late you can enjoy the hotel all day then freshen up before your flight.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast in the morning is a fresh, local buffet and lunch and dinner is a limited selection of fairly traditional Mediterranean meals, mainly fresh seafood and meats, teamed with the highest quality local seasonal produce, much of which is grown on-site on Can Lluc’s organic farm. After dinner, ask the bartender to try my favourite local delicacy, a sweet dessert wine made from grapes grown right there on the property’s vineyard.
There’s a gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and an all-new spa area plus a huge outdoor swimming pool that looks simply stunning when lit up at night, surrounded by manicured gardens and palm trees. If you’re planning a work conference take note: the Can Lluc business centre is fully equipped for up to 24 people – it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.
Simply sensational. You’ll meet owner Lucas on arrival, who then ensures his team take care of your every desire. The way it should be really.
Who stays there
Many British holidaymakers, ranging from honeymooners and couples to young families and groups of clubbers looking for a quiet place to base themselves.
Can Lluc can be pricey in the peak of summer, but the peace and tranquility is totally worth it in my opinion, having stayed in other agroturismos that aren’t as quiet. Additional beds can be arranged for between 65 and 100 euros, though for children under 12 years it’s 60 to 75 euros.
