Are you looking for a holiday paradise? A place that truly lives up to that name? That is quaint and where tradition is a way of life? A destination that has an alluring, varied landscape that is appealing year-round? I recommend a private holiday home in the north of Mallorca, where a whole range of options await you. Be inspired.
In the north of Majorca, away from the bustling tourist hotspots, I fell in love with Pollença. The little town has managed to stay away from the island’s mass tourism. I was drawn to its quaintness, the ancient stonework and winding lanes, the Main Square with its little cafés and restaurants. This is a place where time seems to stand still – my paradise on Majorca. The Tramuntana mountains have rightly been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. They impress me time and again with their indescribable beauty. The foothills of the range tower ruggedly above deserted bays. Against this backdrop, with its very special light and the glittering sea, I found my way back to myself and forget my everyday cares.
The friendly people of Pollença are very close to my heart – I lived alongside them for six years, celebrating their festivals and observing their traditions. Whenever I come to Pollença, I fall in love with the peace and quiet all over again. I enjoy the first coffee of the morning at Café Espanyol on the Main Square, bathed in warm light and with a view of the local mountain Puig de Maria.
Each season has its own charm here. Spring is already in bloom when it’s still winter back home. The almond trees bloom, covering the island with a carpet of white flowers. It smells sweet and of fresh orange blossoms. The water is warm enough to swim in by April and sun-worshippers have the beaches to themselves.
By the end of May, the countryside is a riot of colour and the conditions are ideal for activity tourists who want to go cycling, walking or play golf.
Even in the summer, the bays of Pollença and Alcudia are not overcrowded. Families love the broad, gently sloping beach, the turquoise water and the Caribbean feeling. The fine sandy beaches of Cala San Vicente, Puerto Pollença, Formentor and the bay of Alcudia are easy to reach by car. They are perfect for a swim, kayaking, sailing, surfing, kitesurfing or diving. Pollença is ideal for people in need of some R&R as well as active types who want to do their own thing.
When the temperatures start to drop in autumn at home, the sea here is still warm enough to swim in and you can sit outside comfortably in the evenings. For some people, even winter brings with it a very special feeling. This is when the island belongs to the locals and to people who enjoy peace and serenity.
If you prefer to self-cater, you’ll love the fresh ingredients and regional products on display at the local markets in Pollença, Alcudia and Puerto Pollença. On an outing to Palma de Mallorca, you can wander through the covered markets in Santa Catalina or buy fresh fish from the Mercat d’Olivar.
The vineyards Ca’n Vidalet and Mortix are located in Pollença. Wine enthusiasts can enjoy tastings of award-winning wines from family-run bodegas. In addition to the island’s proud tradition of winemaking, more and more top-rate chefs are also gaining ground on the island and winning the hearts of food-lovers. In their own restaurants or high-end hotels, they reinterpret familiar cuisine from their mothers’ kitchens, serving various seasonal Majorcan dishes alongside haute cuisine. I have guests that come to Majorca purely for the culinary experience.
The island is very well connected and flights from the UK and its neighbouring countries take no more than two hours. Pollença is only around 60 kilometres from the airport in the island’s capital, Palma. If you hire a car, you can arrive in your holiday paradise in Pollença around two hours after the flight touches down.
Has Majorca piqued your interest?
In my opinion, Majorca is best discovered during a stay in a holiday home. I personally select each holiday home so that I can provide straightforward and detailed advice for your holiday planning. Contact me to book your private, individual holiday home.
Enjoy individual and relaxing vacations in Majorca in a holiday home
Are you looking for privacy when you’re on holiday? You like having breakfast in peace and whenever you want? You find holiday homes more personal than hotel rooms? Then come along on a trip to the north of Majorca! Enjoy authentic
Villas or Townhouses,
lovely villas and beautiful Apartments, far from the well-trodden tourist trails.
They’re called Can Morell, Villa Luis and Casa Calvario. I have chosen them with the utmost care. Holiday homes in Majorca for people who prefer a more secluded holiday than that offered by a hotel. The private holiday accommodations available from my agency „contacto-mallorca“ are primarily located in the north of Majorca, in Pollença and Puerto Pollença.
My portfolio features selected country houses (fincas), central locations (townhouses and apartments) and seaside properties (apartments).
Fincas in Pollensa
People looking for some R&R who want to start the day in peace on their own terrace with a view of the Tramuntana mountains, who want to doze off by the pool and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine will find the right place with me. Some fincas are beautifully secluded, surrounded by gnarled holly oaks, ancient olive trees and fragrant orange groves. Others are situated in idyllic gardens with fruit and almond trees, their own vegetable patches and even chickens.
Townhouses and Apartments
The townhouses and apartments in Pollença are a big hit with holidaymakers who like to live among the locals. Like me, they love the old stonework, winding streets and quaintness of the place. They immerse themselves in the cheerful bustle of the Main Square, browse the little shops, visit the Sunday market. Or they while away the time in cafés and try the native cuisine in the restaurants.
The townhouses feature lovely patios (courtyards), roof terraces with beautiful panoramas and some have private pools. As a guest, you have all the essentials around the corner and you don’t necessarily need a car.
The apartments are ideal for people travelling alone, couples or small families. Most have at least two bedrooms and are generally smaller than the Villas and Townhouses. You can choose whether you’d prefer to be in Pollença Town or by the sea. Families with young children often like to be within walking distance of the beach. They like the flat sandy shores of the bay of Pollença and Alcudia.
The holiday homes in Majorca I offer have one thing in common: they guarantee individuality and privacy. Each has its own flair and appeal. I personally know the owners, who have equipped the properties with loving attention to detail and ensure that they are kept clean and in good condition. I can provide you with expert advice when you’re looking for your ideal property and I am happy to answer all your questions.
My guests are curious to get to know the island and the local people.The thing they all have in common is that they don’t want to have to stand in a queue at the hotel breakfast buffet at a set time in the morning.
They prefer to self-cater and barbecue on the veranda or try the regional cuisine and Majorcan wines in the local restaurants, including those dotted around the island.
