|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
Casa Romana sits at the foot of the Calvario steps in the seclusion of the old town, minutes from the best bars, cafes and restaurants on Mallorca, and a short walk to the Placa Major with its bustling Sunday market. There is one double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and two twin-rooms, which share a family bathroom. Beautifully decorated, with an intriguing corridor, which links a comfortable sitting room with a large dining kitchen. Air-conditioning, log-fire, TV, video, dish-washer and washing-machine. Peaceful and pretty internal patio garden with splash-pool and tiny roof terrace with stunning views. A studio with double bed and private bathroom over the kitchen is now available.
The house: The house has everything you will need to make your stay comfortable and is designed to be lived in. Make it your home from home or use it as a convenient base for eating and drinking in or out as you please. And for relaxing, exploring having fun or just become part of a safe, cosmopolititan community.
The location: The location is in the very heart of the beautiful and historic town of Pollenca, buzzing with life, charm and elegance. It is a romantic destination with some of the finest restaurants and funkiest bars in the north of the island of Mallorca. You will be a few minutes walk from a long relaxed lunch with a good value 'menu del dia' or from a night out with al fresco dining and drinking and no worries about driving home. The town has shops, bars, art galleries and two museums and manages to combine being very grown up with being a haven for families. Children are welcome everywhere and will love having an ice cream and playing with children of other nationalities in the town square. The town is a few minutes drive from two beautiful beaches, within 10 minutes drive of fabulous mountain scenery and less than an hour will take you to the cool city of Palma. There is wind-surfing, diving, golf, cycling and excellent horseriding nearby.
We are both designers who have spent our working lives designing museum exhibitions and creating interpretation is historic houses, national parks and a range of castles and notable agricultural and industrial buildings in the UK. We both love history and old buildings.
One of us loves hill walking, scrambling and generally hanging out in the mountains and the other loves swimming, the beach and horse riding. We both love exploring historic towns and villages and spending time in bars, cafes and restaurants. Another thing we both enjoy is a day out in a beautiful historic city with wonderful art galleries, stunning sea views, cool shops and fantastic restaurants. Palma is so easy to get to. We both love Mallorca and knew when we first came to Pollenca 15 years ago that we wanted to make a home here.
Rosemary Komaromy purchased this house in 2002
We think Pollenca is the most lovely town in Mallorca and is perfectly placed for sea, mountains and enjoying the rest of Mallorca.
We were looking for a property that we could visit regularly but which would be low maintenance when we were busy working in the UK. We really liked being in the middle of the historic town where you can walk into the square and meet friends for coffee and pop out to pick up the gorgeous produce available all over town. Wanting to cook things ourselves in a well equipped kitchen was a real driver in getting a place of our own. We wanted a completely unspoilt old house, which we could modernise sympathetically, keeping as many of the old features as possible.
After a few months of searching and seeing many run down properties that didn't fit the bill, we saw that the house had a private for sale sign and we called the owner. This gentleman turned out to be the elderly parish priest in Port Pollenca and he wanted to sell the house which he had inherited but never lived in. It had been empty for 25 years. We immediately saw the potential to turn a modestly priced and completely unspoilt house into the sort of property we wanted. A place were we could holiday, spend Christmas, cook and entertain - with lots of room for family and friends to come and stay.
It's always felt like a happy house and we have enjoyed quiet times, getting away from it all but only a few steps away from the heart of the most vibrant town we know. There have also been lots of family holidays, parties and dinners and memorably good times.
This lovely old house is right in the middle of Pollenca but at the same time is in a quiet street. It is very cosy, comfortable and has a great deal of old world charm.
You don't need a car to get around Pollenca - everything is in walking distance. This town was built for people and carts pulled by donkeys so a car is a nuisance in the narrow streets. We leave ours parked in the newer part of town until we need to use it.
You can even reach the wonderful 'Piedra en Seco' footpath at the edge of town on foot and walk into the Tramuntana Mountains. If you hire a car, you can easily park a little way from the house and drive to any of 3 fantastic beaches in between 7 and 15 minutes depending where you choose to go, and you can be in Palma in 45 minutes.
No worries about drinking and driving! Pollenca has some of the best restaurants on the island and there is a whole range of styles and prices to choose from. The main square is magical in the evening whether you are on a romantic getaway, with friends or family. Pollenca, like Casa Romana is a mix of charming historical architecture, quiet corners and opportunities for fantastic fun.
Comments from guests include the following:
'We had a very enjoyable time in Pollenca and loved the house. It's just lovely'
'We all had a fantastic holiday and your house is beautiful'
'The house is beautiful and tastefully restored and it is in a fantastic location. The advertisements does not do it justice by any means. The splash pool for example is much bigger than it looks and proved to be very popular with my children'
'What a fantastic house in a beautiful town'
'Real care has been taken with this house and we really appreciated the thought has gone into making it comfortable and welcoming for guests'
Having just returned home from our week's holiday in this truly lovely house, we are feeling blessed to have found it and had the opportunity to call it our home for a short time. Everything needed for a home from home type trip is provided, works exactly as it should and we very much hope to return in the future.
Thank you Steve and Rosemary. 😍
We had the most fantastic stay at Casa Romana. The house itself is well equipped,stylish ,cool and very comfortable. The courtyard is a real sun trap and the pool a wonderful treat on a really hot day. Pollensa town itself is charming with plenty of good places to eat and some really nice little shops. The corner shop for the basics is literally two minutes away.The walk up the Calivari steps is well worth doing for the stunning views and the freshly squeezed orange juice at the top. Buses quick and easy to use to go to Puerto Pollensa for a day on the beach. Alcudia well worth a visit, we went on market day which was great. We went on a horse riding trip which was a lot of fun and also did the trip around the north of the island, this includes a coach journey into the mountains, a boat ride to Port de Soller, the tram up to Soller town and the old train through the valley towards Palma, a fantastic good value trip booked through the No Frills company. All contact with Steve and Rosemary about the booking was quick and easy. One of the nicest holidays I have had. We will go back.
A gem of a house to enjoy in a perfect, central location in the adorable old town of Pollença. The house has been renovated with Love and maintains traditional character throughout. Thank you Rosemary and Steve, my Mum loved celebrating her very special 70th Birthday in your house!
Character town house down quiet old street near bottom of Calvary stairs. Great location to fall into bars and restaurants after a long days sightseeing. House was clean, comfortable and spacious for our party of 4 adults. Owner now retired in area was there to greet us and give local advice. You can't park next to the property due to the narrow streets, but we had no problem parking our car in a more modern area of town. Very much enjoyed our stay in beautiful Pollenca.
We loved the place from the very first minute because it had spaciuos rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, the perfect pool for a 5-year-old in the shade and free wifi for the teenagers. It didn't have working air-conditioning in many rooms but in two bedrooms. The house was clean and well-maintained and we could ask the owner to help us with a little problem in the house at any time. We certainly recommend this property which is in the very heart of Pollenca. We enjoyed the holiday on 2nd August when half the town are dressed in white to represent the citizens and the other half dressed up as Moors to fight against the other. They started celebrating 5 days ahead of this holiday and were loud and noisy at night but we didn't mind, on the contrary. All in all we had a really great time there.
We enjoyed our stay in the town . It was a very hot week , but the property was cool inside , once we opened the upstairs door .
Good location for restaurants and a grocery store close by for shopping .
We hope to return in the future.
Pollenca is a historic town in beautiful, unspoilt Northern Mallorca about 40 minutes drive from the airport, near some of the island's most beautiful beaches and stunning mountain scenery. Ideal for walking and cycling holidays and sight seeing as well as relaxing by the sea.
