My husband and I wanted to have a relaxed vacation in Majorca away from all the party areas, we were looking for some R&R. I stumbled upon some reviews and was immediately intrigued by Don Andres house. I decided to call him to inquire about the house and we were lucky and was able to book our room. What a wonderful surprise it was! From the detailed directions that we received to the warm welcome once we arrived. We stayed in the Suite Sirius, which is beautifully decorated and have a link to a private balcony. The rest of the house is just gorgeous, my husband enjoyed relaxing in the swimming pool after each of our adventures all over the island, there are also books, games and an eclectic music collection. The house is located in a small town that also have three really good restaurants each one with a distinct style, our favorite was Can Pelat, delicious food and wonderful service! Andres also provided us with recommendations for almost everything, from the best beaches to additional restaurants and places to visit. We had breakfast every morning at the terrace on the first floor, well with the exception of one day due to bad weather, we had to seek shelter, but in any case before we could say anything Don Andres will quickly provide us with our favorite drinks, yogurt, fruits, a selection of cheeses and meats, etc. I would strongly recommend the homemade Marmalade especially made by Andres with fruit from his Finca, just delicious!
We were also lucky to be there for Don Andres famous dinner featuring his special pasta with clams (Chipi-Chipi), it was a wonderful evening and everything was delicious. Oh! Don Andres Guacamole is really good!
So, we had a wonderful vacation, we sleep like royalty and got to know Don Andres and to enjoy his very special house. We are already planning our next trip to Cas Descans sometime next year...hopefully, we will be able to find an available room!
If you want to get some serious R&R in a beautiful setting with a very special host, Can Descans is the place to go!
Saludos para usted Don Andres y gracias por su maravillosa hospitalidad!
