Make a holiday home in Piedra your home away from home

Those looking to explore the touristic marvels of the Pollensa region of Mallorca in Spain will want to check out the holiday accommodation options in Piedra. Pollensa is known for its magnificent landscape which includes a lovely bay with an imposing mountain range in the background. Evening strolls along the port provide a great sense of tranquillity. In the holiday apartments and cottages in Piedra holidaymakers will equally feel at ease. This is thanks to the views over the bay that the seaside holiday homes offer. Avid golfers will be delighted at the accommodation options that are close to golf courses and those travelling as a family will be pleased with the number of holiday rentals that are not adults-only.

Things to do

-Old town: Most Piedra holiday homes are within close proximity of Pollensa’s old town and residents will want to take a tour of this historical market town. This place has a traditional, laid back air about it as well as some sites of interest. These include the Roman stone bridge that spans the Torrent de San Jordi which was constructed around AD 120.

-Culture and events: Summer visitors to this part of Mallorca will be able to attend a variety of classical music concerts held as part of a popular annual music festival. At this time of year, specifically towards the end of August, an interesting celebration held in memory of a 1550 battle between local Christians and assailants led by Dragut, a pirate, takes place. It culminates in a glorious display of fireworks.

-Museums: Those who appreciate fine art will want to take a detour to the museums of Dionis Bennassar and Marti Vicenc. The former contains the work of the late Dionis Bennassar, a local painter. On display there is a fascinating collection of weaves, abstracts and landscapes. The Museo Marti Vicenc houses paintings and sculptures by Marti Vicenc.

-Shopping: Residents of holiday accommodation in Piedra will want to attend the Sunday market at the town square. To get a bargain on items visitors should try and get there as early as possible. And when they’re done they can relax and refresh themselves at the nearby bars as they chat and people-watch.

-Water sports: There are a number of fun outdoor activities visitors can do in the waters of the Mediterranean. Those lodging in holiday homes in Piedra near the sea will have but a short distance to walk to get a boat that will take them round the waters off the Pollensa coastline. Holidaymakers will also want to try their hand at scuba diving as the gear and diving lessons are readily available.

Weather in Piedra

The beautiful Mediterranean weather of the Mallorca region is what drives tourists to book holiday accommodation in Piedra between spring and summer.

From as early as April temperature averages are in the twenties and they continue to rise as summer replaces spring.

There is virtually no rainfall at this time of year.

Travel to Piedra

The Palma de Mallorca Airport, also known as the Son Sant Joan Airport is the closest international airport to Piedra. This is one of Spain’s larger airports and one of the busiest in Europe during summer.

Those who would rather avoid the summer crowds will still find regular scheduled flights whenever they decide to book.

                                          We spent a wonderful Christmas and New Year at Marta's farm. Thank you for the Christmas tree. It was very interesting to find out about the ecological philosophy on which the farm was based. Everything that was said made so much sense. The animals were in beautiful condition and the local produce, in particular the meat, was delicious. My son-in-law, a chef, was very impressed by the quality. I particularly enjoyed using the fresh vegetables from their kitchen garden which they allowed us to use. The house was very comfortable and provided everything necessary for the stay. It was very clean and well taken care of. It provided a very necessary break for us city folk to unwind and detox. There were some really interesting visits and Marta told us about some speciality restaurants in the region which served up the delicious Asturias products cooked to perfection. We hope to repeat our experience next Christmas season. Thanks to Marta and her lovely family for sharing their lives with us.

                                          Spacious light and airy house - brand new for us

                                          4 of 5
                                          The house had only just been completed when we stayed there - we were the second week - so everything was brand new. The living spaces in the house are very spacious and light and airy and the owners very helpful giving us advice on places to eat, beaches to go to and providing a kettle for us when we noticed there was't one ( an essential item for English visitors!). The view from the terrace/ sitting areas inside is wonderful up to the hills. The double bedroom is quite small, but sufficient, and the two twin bedrooms upstairs only have skylights so you miss out on the views, but this is made up for by the huge windows in the living areas. Overall it is a peaceful rural spot; there is some noise form the nearby road, but when we were there it was not intrusive and there is a quarry nearby so occasionally you would hear a 'boom'. The bathrooms are brand new and very good. Some of the fittings in the kitchen need a little snagging to make them work perfectly - e.g. being able to open the dishwasher door completely, and some of the sealing around the windows, but the owners are aware of this and I imagine they will sort this out once the summer is over. The location was brilliant for sea and hills - we found an amazing walk onto a ridgeway just by continuing up the road into the mountains and there were some great beaches for surfing and swimming really nearby (less than 15 minutes away). Overall we felt lucky to have found this place between the hills and the sea.
