Interaction with Guests
Our guests will be looked after by the lovely Antonia, who lives in the village and comes to look after the farm during the day.
The farm is in pure nature. It is ideal for people who like to get away from it all and be immersed in Menorcas finest nature. It is also ideal for hiking and bike trails as well as kayaks excursions.
Best rent a car. Roads in Menorca are quite rural, in fact, the higher the better car. Also you can arrange a pickup at the airport to the farm should you not wish to rent a vehicle.
Taking care of the house and respect the environment. Smoking is not permitted inside the house. Dogs are allowed but must sleep outside and can not be in the living room or kitchen. Thank you!
We went here for a week with two kids of the age of 7 and 10 in May.
Everything and I mean everything was perfect. The house is even more beautiful than it looks on the pictures. Antonia was the most welcoming and warm person we met in a long time, she took care of everything, we were welcomed with a lovely oven cooked chicken accompanied with a bottle of red wine and some basic groceries we asked for. She provided us with fresh artichokes and lemons from the farms garden. The paella she made was a bless.
The house and the environment it self is more than one could ask for. Vadim was always in touch with us for assistance if we needed him. We're definitely coming back to this lovely place.
The place is great! As described by the other guests before it is even better than in the description and the images. The house is located at one of the most beautiful spots on the island in a quiet valley; the only sound you hear during night is the nightingale. Everything you might think of is provided for. Antonia and her husband come to the farm every day and are very nice and caring. Antonia can bring fresh bread from town in the morning. Communication with Vadim is very easy and good directions and information is provided. You can use his great DVD collection with projector and screen. Conclusion: Perfect!
In fact, like other visitors pointed out in the previous comments, it is a challenge to describe with adequate words our experience at the Finca. To summarise, we like to say their is the "before and after the finca".
We came in late April, it was sunny, enough to lay down and rest in the middle of nothing, to take some bikes or walk along the sea. Antonia was always aware about our needs. We really like to thank her for the small and discrete attentions she provides us throughout our stay; for explaining me the story of Minorca, the finca; for her flexibility with our timetable. We have not met Vadim and his family, but they keep an eye on our journey.
Don't bother with anything (food, calm, rest, sun). All is in there !
We are looking forward so much to come back.
This is in the most stunning location on the whole island. With views of beautiful gentle rolling hills and a short walk to the sea - it was perfect. The house is tastefully done up with all the mod cons.
It is rural, quiet and a real retreat.
Thank you to our host and Antonia for looking after us so well.
As all the other reviewers have attested to the farmhouse and its surroundings offer an idyllic escape. The property itself is beautifully maintained, akin to staying in a well loved home, but with all the amenities you would expect of 5* getaway. The surroundings are spectacular, nestled in traditional Menorcan farmland, yet only minutes from some of the best of the island’s coastline. It really provides the most wonderful retreat, whether you want relaxation or outdoor pursuits. The warm hospitality of Antonia and Gines who take care of the property deserves repetition. We were greeted with dinner, wine, and a house of fresh flowers. Antonia cooked wonderful paella one night, and continued to stock the kitchen with seasonal produce from the farm throughout our stay. As for the host Vadim, I have never had such helpful, yet un-intrusive communication with an airbnb host, he was incredibly helpful whether with tips on beaches and dining, or helping organise a horseback ride. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home.
My friend Tom and me spent a few days in Alfurinet and it was an amazing experience.
The farm is situated in an enjoyable environment, a quiet valley in the middle of the nature. The house is a traditional construction with all the facilities you can imagine.
We didn't meet Vadim in person but he was always very gentle and very clear in the communication and he gave us a bunch of tips about the house and the surroundings.
Antonia and Gines, the couple who takes care of the house, were absolutely lovely and they helped us with everything we needed. They even welcomed us with a delicious lunch, wine and flowers all around.
Lot of thanks for everything, looking forward to be back again soon.
We have no words to describe our experience at Vadim's farmhouse. It was impecable, from start to end. Although we did not have the chance to meet Vadim in person, he communicated with us very clearly when doing the booking, and was very helpful with house instructions, area tips, etc. Moreover, his generosity and hospitality was marvellous. Antonia was ready to greet us upon our arrival, having prepared us dinner, and covering all our needs gracefully. The place is just a dream, beautifully decorated, with all the amenities you may think of and completely surrounded by nature. We would love to be back soon and are very grateful to Vadim, Antonia and her husband for their perfect hospitality.
