Portol is also known as something of an artist hangout, meaning that great traditional art, pottery and knick-knacks, along with their eclectic creators, are only a short stroll from your holiday villas in Portol. With options such as heated pools and stunning countryside settings, holiday accommodation in Portol is well appointed and well facilitated. From couples to large family groups, holiday homes in Portol suit a range of travelling parties.

Things to do in Portol

Although Portol may be a little quieter than other holiday destinations on majorca; the area still has a great deal to offer, although hiring car is definitely a great idea if you’re interested in taking advantage of Portol’s proximity to some of majorca’s fantastic tourist hotspots.

-TheMuseu del Fang (or Pottery Museum) located in Marratxi, approximately 10 kilometres from Portol holiday villas is a must see if you’ve fallen in love with the artistic side of Portol. The museum displays fantastic pottery from numerous different locations; however, the majority of the exhibits are traditional majorcan clay pieces, which are becoming increasingly rare. If you’re in the Portol region in March, you may also like to pay a visit to the Fira del Fang Pottery Fair, which further showcases the area’s stunning earthen wares.

-The Son Amar, situated approximately 20 kilometres west of Portol, showcases dinner theatre at its finest. If singing, dancing and fine food and wine sounds like your idea of a great night out then this is definitely up your alley. The theatre has an extremely user friendly website, which highlights their current shows, allowing you read about their current shows, and reserve your tickets, all from the comfort of you Portol holiday home.

-The BasIlica De Sant Francesc in Palma de majorca is without a doubt one of the most stunning churches on the island, and the perfect destination for a short daytrip from Portol. Built in the 1200s and remodelled in the 1600s after a lightning strike, it provides an interesting contrast between the original gothic interior, and the subsequently added sandstone façade. A visit to this part of the capital also provides you with the added opportunity to experience some of majorca’s best shopping and restaurants, before heading back to your peaceful Portol holiday cottage.

- Going to the beach is one of the most popular pastimes on majorca. Although Portol itself is situated approximately 20 kilometres from the coast, it is certainly worth the drive to see beaches such as Cala Major and Playa de Palma. If you don’t mind travelling a little further afield, Cala Mondrago Beach, which is located no more than 70 kilometres west of Portol holiday homes is also absolutely breathtaking.

-Golf is without question one of the most popular sports on majorca, and the island boasts roughly 20 different golf courses, most of which were designed by world renowned course designers. Golfers with a holiday villa in Portol will therefore find themselves spoiled for choice as at least 8 of the islands courses are situated within a 30 kilometre radius of Portol.

The weather in Portol

Majorca experiences a Mediterranean climate, which generally entails hot dry summers and cool wet winters. The best time to book a holiday home in Portol is consequently between May and October, although this is also peak tourist season. If you choose to risk the weather and visit outside of peak season however, you may be positively surprised by the change in the island’s atmosphere and prices!

Getting to Portol

Portol is extremely easy to access, owing to the fact that the village is located a mere 22 kilometres from the Son Sant Joan Airport in Palma de majorca. You may therefore choose to cover the short distance between the airport and your Portol holiday villa in a number of different ways; including a shuttle bus, taxi or hire car.

Close to all amenities and some great restaurants and has fantastic views of the port from the very large balcony which is well equipped with table and chairs and comfortable loungers. No air con in apartment but this wasn't a problem as there is the occasional breeze and two very effective large fans if needed. Kitchen although small is equipped with all that you would need. Apartment also located close enough to take tram to Soller and to catch buses to Deia and surrounding areas. Smooth check in with Cheryl who was very helpful and informative. All in all had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend.

The house was absolutely amazing with great tennis court, fantastic swimming pool and a small gym with table tennis in the basement - kids loved it as much as we did. There is satellite TB and wifi at the house which was great. They even have a couple of chickens so had fresh eggs every morning for breakfast. The house inside was clean and very modern. Great BBQ area and pizza oven and ate outside every night which was lovely. Have never been to Majorca before so was blown away by how beautiful the island is. You do need a car but everything is between 10 to 40 mins drive. We would not hesitate in recommending this house as it was in a quiet area but still had loads to do within a short distance. Felt very safe and had a truly relaxing time - will definitely be returning next year.
