A wonderful place to forget about the "real world".
This is a truly wonderful house in one of the most picturesque spots I have ever stayed in.
The house is beautifully appointed with all the modern luxuries (TVs and sound systems in every room, amazing coffee machine, wifi etc.) you would hope for while retaining a strong sense of rural character. Even the art around the house encourages you to stop and look at it rather than just walking by.
Vadim (the owner) and Antonia (housekeeper) are always available to help with anything you may need. Antonia comes in daily to make the beds and give the house a clean making this a halfway house between a house rental and a hotel!
It's a perfect place for kids; the pool has a gate so the children's can't get to it unless you want them to and being so remote they could run around the grounds without having to worry about them. I would strongly recommend this pace for a family holiday.
We will definitely be back.
Wonderful house for a perfect holiday
Everything about Alfurinet exceeded our expectations...
The house is located in beautiful countryside, a short drive from Ciudadela and wonderful Calas.
The rooms are really lovely: white, spacious and very stylish and although it is very large the whole house feels extremely cosy.
Antonia welcomed us with freshly picked apricots and a delicious dinner and she and Vadim were always very attentive.
We cant think of a better place to stay.
Family holiday in Villa Alfurinet
We were a party of 8 with an age range of 19 to 65 !! The villa and surrounding 500 acre estate is simple magnificent in every way and the privacy is second to none. This house has all the integrity and beauty one would expect from someone's home that they love. The villa is amazingly well equipped, top quality appliances, great coffee machine and even sharp knives. The setting in folds of Minorcan rolling countryside is stunning. Antonia the housekeeper appeared every day and also cooked us a few delicious evening meals. We made use of the mountain bikes to explore the stunning coast, an ideal way to have fun and get fit! Communication with the owner was excellent - all in all we all gave it % STARS.
Wonderful house, wonderful vacation!
If you're looking for a beautiful place for a group of friends/family in the middle of the Minorcan countryside this is the place!
We were a group of 8 adults and 6 kids and everyone was taken away by the beauty of the house and surroundings. There was plenty of space for everyone and several of our friends are already planning a 2nd stay.
The house is appointed very nicely and there wasn't anything we could think off that was missing. We asked Antonia to cook a couple of dishes and bake two cakes for us and everything was delicious! The prices for the food were very reasonable.
We're already looking forward to our next stay!
Magical vacation in menorca
Alfurinet is a wonderful, welcoming, unique place... It is surrounded by beautiful farmlands, tucked away with beautiful views. The house is very cozy, well thought out with elegant taste, it has everything you might need, and even more. In just a few minutes you feel quite at home.
You can enjoy fresh produce from the incredible vegetable garden everyday: tomatoes, melons, eggplant...
There are activities for everybody: swimming pool, bicycles, kayaks, home theater,ping pong... and of course: Mediterranean beaches.
Everything is well organized and maintained. The caretakers make sure that you have a great stay.
We highly highly recommend Alfurinet to anybody who is interested in enjoying the menorcan farmland and beaches, and really looking to get away.
Absolutely beautiful property
We just loved this villa! We are three families who holiday together a lot and this has definitely been the best we have stayed in. The rooms were huge, spacious and very comfortable. The interior was beautiful and the house was so well stocked with everything a family could need from kids toys, beach accessories, bikes kayaks, outdoor table tennis, the list is endless... Antonia is a fantastic housekeeper and lovely lady who kept the house immaculately clean and was so helpful and welcoming, nothing was ever a problem. She cooked meals for us on numerous occasions which were both delicious and very good value. The swimming pool was beautiful and the kids just loved playing in it and adults enjoyed the beautiful loungers over looking the beautiful countryside around it. The pool has a gate down to it so this is reassuring if you have young children.
Vadim was very helpful and efficient, providing all the necessary information we required regarding the property, we definitely want to return! Many thanks for an amazing holiday!
The views fomr the famr are incredible. It is completely immersed in a natures paradise, with many protected bird species such as the egyptian eagle. Alfurinet Farmhouse is located 30 minutes drive from the historic harbour town of Ciutadella and 12 minutes from the wonderous sandy beaches of Algaiarens and La Vall. The property of the house reaches down to the beautiful Menorcan coastline and the rocky beach of Alfurinet. From here you can walk along the Cami de Cavall to the amazing sandy beach of Cala Pilar. Ciutadella town is architecturally very beautiful with a centrally located cathedral and thus it is advisable to conduct a guided tour along the narrow streets to visit the old cathedral and the homes of the aristocrats. In the town you can rent a boat for the day, arrange for a scuba diving lesson, or settle down for a Menorcan lunch on one of the harbour restaurants. The island is also rich in history, offering visitors the opportunity of visiting ancient sacred sites & archaeological museums. Menorca is also great for coastal walking, mountain biking and horse riding. The house is a great base for either of these activities which can be arranged prior to arrival.
