Why You Should Stay in Pollensa Villas
Pollensa, located at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana in north Mallorca is one of those places that seem straight out of a story book.
The picturesque town features a lively main square and cobblestone streets, scenic countryside landscapes and medieval architecture. Its myriad attractions make it a destination that truly offers something for every Pollensa villa traveller.
Villas in Pollensa
Your Pollensa villa
boasts a full range of amenities: there’s a private pool, fully equipped kitchen, spacious poolside terrace, thoughtfully furnished indoor spaces and plenty of sun-drenched spaces for outdoor relaxation.
Choose from a selection of add-on amenities depending on your needs. You may opt for villa pre-stocking, request for childminding services, a high chair or baby cot, or engage a private chef. Simply let your Pollensa villa manager know, and he or she will make the necessary arrangements.
Family activities in Pollensa
Visit the main town square
to explore its array of shops, cafes and restaurants. The Pollensa Market takes place on Sunday, and is worth a visit to purchase souvenirs, or to stock up on fresh produce for a cookout at your Pollensa villa. It’s worth stopping by at Santa Maria dels Àngels
; the unassuming exterior of the 13th-century church belies its intricate interiors.
Or make a day trip to Puerto Pollensa. The destination offers a family-friendly atmosphere, fine sand beaches and water sport activities, and is just a quick drive away from your Pollensa villa. You can also enjoy a stroll along Pine Walk, or charter a boat during your trip there.
Activities and points of interest in Pollensa
Art and culture buffs will enjoy visiting Casa Museu Dionís Bennàssar
and Museu de Pollensa
The former is the house where local painter Dionis Bennassar lived and worked, and features a collection of his paintings, drawings, sculptures and original furnishings. The latter, a convent in the 16th century is now a museum home to Gothic and contemporary art works. Both museums are less than 10 minutes’ drive from your Pollensa villa.
The walk up to Carrer del Calvari
can get challenging, but there are a few rest stops along the way. And when you arrive at the viewpoint, you’ll be rewarded with unforgettable views out to the coast and beyond.
Hiking enthusiasts will want to explore the Santuari del Puig de Maria
, an ancient monastery nestled atop a hill. Re-fuel at the on-site restaurant, before you embark on a walk back to town.
If you need more information, or require help with getting your tickets or transportation sorted out, simply let your Pollensa villa manager know! He or she will be happy to assist.
