Our villa holidays in Pollensa offer you a beautiful location between the Mediterranean Sea and the Tramuntana Mountains. Enjoy the laidback country lifestyle surrounded by farms and vineyards as well as the attractions of this stylish Spanish town. You can wander the cobbled streets of the old town and visit galleries and boutiques for souvenirs or buy locally produced food at the popular Sunday market. When you’re ready, find a café or restaurant and sit watching the world go by. To see the surrounding countryside, take one of the walking or cycle paths around Pollensa, into the mountains or along the coast. The beaches of Puerto Pollensa and Cala San Vicente are only 10 minutes’ drive from the town. When you’ve finished exploring, relax by your villa’s private pool.
Local Markets and Shopping
There is an excellent market in the Old Town of Pollensa every Sunday where you can shop for locally grown produce to cook at your villa. The town also has several quaint gift shops and mini markets. If you are going to Puerto Pollensa, we recommend you visit on a Wednesday when the weekly market is held in the main square. You can buy everything you need for a picnic on the beach. Pollensa has supermarkets on the outskirts of the town if you need anything extra for your villa holiday.
Bars and restaurants
Pollensa Square and its narrow, cobbled streets has plenty of chic brasseries and traditional restaurants where you can choose between a light tapas lunch, paella or an international menu. Nearby Puerto Pollensa has plenty of waterfront restaurants so why not dine on the seafront and watch the fishermen's boats in the harbour? Alcudia is around 15 minutes away by car and has lots to offer with restaurants around the harbour and tapas bars in the historic part of the town.
The North East coast of Majorca has a choice of excellent and different types of beaches to try. The closest is the long Blue Flag sweeping bay of Puerto Pollensa (Puerto Pollenca), 15 minutes' drive away, which runs parallel to the famous Pine Walk. It’s a sandy beach with a sheltered bay, ideal for paddling and swimming or trying the watersports on offer. When you want a break from the sun, there are plenty of fun beach bars. If you prefer a smaller, more intimate cove beach, Cala San Vicente, a short drive North, has 3 to choose from. In the opposite direction, around 20 minutes’ drive from Pollensa is Alcudia which has a five mile long sandy beach.
The neighbouring resort of Alcudia has a good waterpark, Hidropark, as well as a go-karting track and horse riding facilities. There are also boating excursions, including the glass bottom boat, available at Puerto Pollensa Marina and Alcudia Harbour.
