Although Formentor may be a small community, its proximity to larger centres such as Pollensa and Alcudia, in addition to the amazing landscape and wildlife in the area, mean that you’ll never be at a loss for things to see and do. As with many of the smaller townships however, having your own transportation while staying in holiday accommodation in Formentor is definitely an advantage.

Laguna pool and bar below is ideal for days you don't want go very far. Hotel Illad'or 50 metres away is ideal for an early evening cocktail and to watch the sun go down over the spectacular pollensa bay. A lovely walk into the port under the pines finds numerous bar/restaurants just off the beach. If you have never been to Pollensa before, you don't know what you're missing. Peter's place is an ideal base to explore it.Dave&Sheila.

Only 5 mins from sea. As with any properties, we had minor problems with things breaking but these were fixed incredibly promptly - highlighting the excellent standard of care provided by the owners. The bedrooms and bathroom facilities were fantastic and everything we needed was provided. Would love to come back
