In the tiny hamlet of Lloseta, which has very little to say for itself other than the presence of Ca’s Comte.
As the old saying goes, it’s all in the details, and Cas Comte is big on details. Clearly designed with romance in mind, all eight rooms here have a bathtub (generally strewn with rose petals) and shower, and plush linens - and all guests get a bottle of fizz on arrival. Less romantic, but equally welcome, is the free WiFi, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. The four suites are split over two levels, which makes you feel like you’ve got your own private cottage - cool for longer stays.
Love hanging out around the big, roaring fireplace in the winter (although it can feel a bit busy if the place is full), love chilling under the stars on the patio in the summer. Another one of those places that calls itself a hotel, but feels more like a home.
Eating and drinking
The hotel offers dinner service for guests only. You need to book it advance and state then if you have any preferences e.g. vegetarian, allergies, etc. I thought it was pretty good: fresh, locally-grown ingredients cooked simply, presented nicely. Serving an aperitif in the lounge or on the terrace beforehand is also a nice touch.
Another surprise, for rare is the small hotel that has a spa. OK, really and truly it’s not quite a spa in the five-star sense, but it does offer a good range of massages, a couple of treatments, sauna and ice-room. Unfortunately there is no swimming pool.
Pleasant, friendly and generally pretty good, although doesn't always quite hit the mark.
Who stays there
It’s getting more and more ‘discovered’ by people who are happy to use it as a base for exploring further afield. Chances are you’ll be rubbing shoulders with discerning, travel-savvy folk from all over.
With all this good stuff on offer, you may well be expecting me to say expensive. It isn’t, in fact it’s one of the best value places on the island.
