Make a holiday apartment or villa in Pollensa, Majorca your home away from home

A world away from the typical tourist resorts of Spain’s Balearic Islands, Pollensa, in the far northern corner of Majorca, is an attractive historic town, popular with visitors who want to experience the real Majorca. Narrow, picture perfect medieval streets entice you to explore, whilst the nearby beaches of Port de Pollenca make this an ideal holiday accommodation location for families and couples alike.

Things to do on holiday in Pollensa, Majorca

Forget the crowded beaches, large hotels, and British pubs which parts of the Balearic Islands became famous for, and enjoy the more traditional side of the beautiful island of Majorca. Founded in the 13th century, Pollensa (also spelt Pollenca), was built nearly 4 miles away from the coast in order to better defend itself from pirate attacks. Though there’s no danger of pirate attacks now, this pretty town has become one of Majorca’s most desirable locations for holiday apartments and villas because of the more relaxed way of life here.

Many of the buildings in Pollensa were built during medieval times, in the 17th and 18th centuries, so the narrow, cobbled streets transport you back to times gone by. The main square (Placa Major) is a popular place to sip a drink and watch the world go by, overseen by the large 13th century church that stands over the square and was built by the Templars. Pollensa is most famous for its Good Friday Procession when the streets become full of locals and tourists. Climbing the 365 steps to the chapel on top of the hill is popular and offers a wonderful view, or for a longer walk, the 3 to 4 hour hike on the Cami Vell del Far takes hikers to secluded beaches and beautiful scenery.

Places to visit on holiday in Pollensa, Majorca

Find a fantastic Pollensa villa and you probably won’t want to venture too far from Pollensa itself, though if you’re longing for the beach there’s a great one just a few miles away! Port de Pollenca (or Puerto Pollenca as it’s also known) is one of the top resort towns on this northern coast of Mallorca. You’ll find restaurants, shops, a nice marina, and more here.

Other nearby attractions include Cap de Formenter, at the furthest northern point of Majorca, and the resort town of Alcudia. Alcudia’s old town features Roman ruins plus there’s the S’Albufera National Park.

The weather in Pollensa, Majorca

Staying in a Pollensa apartment during the summer you’ll benefit from dry, hot, sunny days typical of a Mediterranean climate. Average highs in the summer range from 20C (68F) in May to 29C (84F) in August, and are only slightly cooler at night. Winters, though mild, do experience rainfall and because of this there are far less tourists demanding Pollensa villas and apartments during the winter.

Flights to Pollensa, Majorca

Majorca has been a package tourism destination since 1952, though now with so many people owning their own Pollensa apartments, tourists are finding their own way here! Many charter and budget airlines offer flights to the main city,Palma de Mallorca, including easyJet who fly from multiple UK airports. You can easily rent a car from the airport to get you to Pollensa.

It is a lovely old townhouse that has been tastefully furnished and decorated, and everything has been done to a very high standard. There was plenty of space for 9 of us and we enjoyed sitting out on the various terraces/balconies. There are lots of stairs in the house connecting the three floors so would not suit anyone with mobility problems. The house is right in the middle of Pollensa, and just a short walk from the main square with all its restaurants and bars etc. Highly recommended.

It was a minute or so stroll to the main square of historic Pollensa, with boutique shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the beautiful town church. Despite being so central it was quiet and peaceful within the property, only hearing the occasional chime of the church bells. Every room was exceptionally clean and rich with character. We particularly enjoyed the living room on the third floor, with a wood burning stove and comfy armchairs, it was a great place to read, work and play board games around the fire. We also loved the bed on the roof terrace which we took blankets up to in the evening and watched the sunset over the mountains. The view from there was exceptional. We were pleasantly surprised by the January weather – a coat was needed but it was warm in the sun and still lovely to eat outside. We had some great walks in and around the surrounding hills with views over the town, followed by hot chocolate in the square. This was a magical stay in a very special place to which we would love to return.
