Your rural retreat in Mallorca by Ca’n Beneït

If you are looking for a natural environment in which to spend your holidays or take a well deserved break, you have come to the right place. Located in the heart of the island, Ca’n Beneït is a rural hotel that will give you the chance to spend your days surrounded by nature, relax, peace and silence, only disturbed occasionally by the ringing of the bells from the church and the grazing sheep. We are a little hotel with only ten rooms that caters and adapts to everything you might need in order to spend a few days be it on your own, with friends or partners, or with your beloved family. Nestled in the Binibona valley we are only a short ride away from some of the most quaint and picturesque little towns on the island, as well as any other place of interest that Mallorca has to offer.

The story of our small hotel in the mountains

Long before becoming a rural hotel, Ca’n Beneït, along with Son Mestre, was the main estate of the Binibona hamlet. Originally known as Benimala, and then Benibona, the old little town’s origins date back well before the conquer of the island of Mallorca in the year 1229, when King Jaume I established the island as a kingdom.

As a reward for their military success, and well documented in the thirteen century “Llibre del Repartiment”, or Mallorca’s land distribution book, the King awarded the lands of the valley to the Marquis of Palmer, one of the knights from the Catalan nobility that fought alongside him.

Under Muslim rule for centuries, the island of Mallorca has reminiscences of it not only in its distinctive architecture and its unique centuries old dry stone works used for terracing the fields and for irrigating the plains, but also in the names of many of its towns and villages. This way we know for a fact that Binibona (from the arabic word “bini”, meaning the “house of”) was inhabited well before the thirteen century, and the valley in which our rural hotel is located was an strategic stronghold as one of the few entry points into the central Tramuntana mountains.

On the other side of the valley, and visible from our hotel, are the grounds of an old Arabic castle built on a hill that was used for the protection of the mountain pass. Legend has it that some sort of treasure was hidden in the fortification, the quest of which made the castle the object of much desire and prompted its dismantling many centuries ago. Some of its old stones were probably used to build some of the constructions in the hamlet bellow, as well as in other parts of the island.

Legend or not, the road uphill from Binibona remains as untouched and pristine as it once was, and our guests can take the very same trail leading up to the mountain tops and valleys that were once used by the dozens of guarded men defending the monastery of Lluc, sheltered in the Tramuntana range, from outer attacks.

According to our grandfathers, the rise of the hamlet in Binibona occurred in the turn of the XXth century, when thirty houses in town and ten in the nearby Fincas and smaller properties were inhabited. The main and almost exclusive activity back then, as well as their only means of survival, was agriculture.

Back in the days the landscape changed with the seasons, and so did the harvests, traditions and festivities in the little hamlet. That very essence of slow paced life still lingers in Ca’n Beneït somehow, and along with our honest service and our rooted to the land philosophy, we find it to be our most valuable treasure.

After the Spanish civil war, and the second world war, most of the inhabitants had already fled for the city and the better opportunities it offered. The extreme dedication needed for laborious agriculture activities, as well as its modernization and the flourishing of industry on the island, along with better paid jobs and more educational options available in urban areas, precipitated the gradual abandonment of the sleepy village, leaving its beauty and authenticity almost frozen in time.

It wasn’t until the end of the XXth century that Binibona emerges back, due to the extensive refurbishment of the formerly unsuitable houses by its new dwellers. The reconstruction is mainly driven by the modernization of the old Fincas such as ours in rural houses capable to offer the highest degree of comfort while keeping their good old charm.
