Sustainable and eco-friendly Finca Hotel in Mallorca – Finca Can Feliu
The sustainable and eco-friendly finca hotel Can Feliu lies hidden close by the sleepy town of Porreres, in the heart of Mallorca. This pretty little hotel with 10 rooms in a renovated mallorcan Finca, is the only eco-friendly, green hotel which produces organic wine and olive oil that are certified by the Demeter organisation.
The sustainable and eco friendly finca hotel and its history
The brothers Carlos and Xavi Feliu opened this sustainable and eco-friendly hotel in 2006 in an old mallorcan finca building from the 17th century which has been in their family for generations. When they were kids, they used to come here with their parents to spent their weekends. Some of the furniture and decorations of the finca hotel are still the same ones as back then.
The finca has been thoroughly renovated, using original materials. The result is a beautiful finca hotel which is equipped with all modern amenities while maintaining its original character. The 4 double rooms, 4 Junior Suits, one Suite and one Family apartment are lovingly decorated with a mix of vintage mallorcan and modern elements.
The comfortable dining hall makes you feel right at home with its long wooden Table. Also here, part of the decoration stems from Carlos and Xavis Great-Grandparents. All over the hotel, you will find little details, like for example the wooden baby bed, that has found its place underneath a stairwell with lovely mallorcan tiles.
Beeing an eco-friendly hotel, there are quite a few animals on the grounds. On a vast meadow mallorcan black pig, cows, donkeys, ponies and a horse all live peacefully together. Chicken roam the grounds freely and provide fresh, organic eggs for the rich, organic breakfast that is served in the dining hall every morning.
For dinner, the guests have the option of reserving the daily menu every morning during breakfast times.
Also, in the smaller of the two finca buildings there is a fully equipped communal kitchen, where guests can prepare snacks all day long.
Demeter certified organic vineyard and olive oil mill
Part of the sustainable and eco friendly concept of the hotel are their vineyards and the olive oil mill that produce outstanding wines and oils. The finca Can Feliu is the only business in Mallorca that has obtained a certification by Demeter international, the largest certification organisation for biodynamic agriculture.
You can book guided tours for the vineyards as well as for the olive oil mill. Wine tastings and olive oil tastings are also offered.

The facilities of the finca hotel
The vast grounds surrounding the two big stone buildings that make up the hotel, offer many spots to relax and soak up the wonderful atmosphere of this Finca.
The lagoon-like pool lies quietly, shaded by big pine trees. There are various stone barbecues of different sizes around the finca, even an old oven for baking bread which is used today to make pizzas.
Every Friday the Grill&Wine event takes place, which consists of a guided tour through the wine cellars, a wine tasting and a big barbecue on one of the large terraces overlooking the vineyards and the sunset over the Tramuntana mountains.
Events in the sustainable and eco-friendly Finca Can Feliu
Apart from the Wine&Grill event every Friday, you can also book the Finca or its grounds for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events or any other gathering. And not only the barbecue is fantastic here. The kitchen serves high end mallorcan food. The menus for all events are of course individually compiled acording to your tastes and wishes. If your event calls for haute cuisine, you have the option of booking a separate catering of your choice.
