The garden has a range of fruit trees which include orange, lemon , clementine,pomegranate, olive, Mallorquin apricot, fig, walnut, almond, carobs and grape vines. There is a large traditional Mallorcan wood bread oven in the garden between the terrace/dining area and the pool which in years gone by served as the oven for all the houses nearby.
The garden is very green and lush, there are lots of colours from the different flowers that bloom during the spring and summer months.
The kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, oven, 4 ring hob and fridge/freezer, behind the house there is a utility room with washing machine, and large American style fridge freezer. Outside in front of the utility room there is an outside WC

One of the bedrooms can have it´s own access from the outside if required which can be benefitial for families with older children or two family groups.
Outside there is a great area with a stone built Bbq and comfortable seating area under a shady terrace were you can see the pool if you have young children. In the garden there are several seating and eating areas were you can enjoy the outdoor life that Mallorca offers.
There are several grassed lawn areas and plenty to keep the younger ones busy. The property is conveniently located with the old town just a short walk away and the famous Plaza Major can be reached in 20 to 25 minutes. The large supermarket can be reached in approximately 10 minutes walk by walking along a footpath alongside the torrent (dry river bed) and cutting through the commercial area behind the property.
Many thanks for the lovely week we had at your Finca "Can Roca". It was lovely to sit and relax by the pool in such a tranquil setting. It is unusual to find such a cormfortable place in Mallorca or Spain, we felt very lucky we had picked your house. We had a few nice meals out in town at No.8 and Il Gardino and would highly reccomend this house to couples and families with kids alike.
We are a bunch of young cyclists searching year by year for our early season form. In spring 2014 we spent one week at Can Roca.
The booking, the payment, the arrangement of the keys etc. went off without a hitch. We felt warmly welcome and Colin even once visited us to check that everything was fine.
The premise is fairly hidden and we struggled some time to find it. The beautiful main building has a nice terrace with a grill, a wooden bench an outdoor lounge. There is a nice pool in front (which we didn’t use due to the early season temperatures) and a little shed in the backyard. That one was perfect to lock our bikes overnight.
We spent our days out in the saddle. The location is quite good for training purposes as you can choose between mountainous and flat terrain. Nice spots like Sa Calobra, Puig Major and Cap Fermentor are all in a day’s (Road-) cycling distance as well as Cala Millor on the east coast of the Island.
Getting to the supermarket you better use a car as Can Roca is not directly in the center. Neglecting the matter of fact that it is a decent walk to the next waste container ;-) we had a great time at Can Roca and we will definitely come back.
We Stayed in Can Roca for a week, as a family of 4 adults and 1 child age 4.
What a beautiful home and I say home because that's what it felt like! Everything you could need was there and more! Lovely little touches like children's toys and games/drawing things that our Daughter loved! The house itself is picture perfect, the decor is beautiful and the garden and pool are well kept, with gorgeous plants and trees! We had such good fun in the pool which was the perfect size for us.
My Son who is 17 and his friend had their own entrance to the house which was great as they could do there own thing with out disturbing us, this would also work for two families staying in the house.
The kitchen is very well equipped and great for home from home cooking!
I would recommend Con Roca %100 We had one the best holidays ever! See you next year!
The Wood Family
- very relaxing and quiet location with a beautiful garden and pool
- the inside of the traditional house is furnished very tasteful
We were looking for a Spring Get-away for two families and after some research chose Can Roca which is situated just outside Pollensa.
The property was as described and the garden area was a lot larger than that shown on the photos. Our little boy , aged 2 1/2, loved running around and exploring. The trampoline and slide were great and well used during our stay. The location was secure with gates at the front of the property.
The fittings and furniture were of a high standard and the various seating areas around the property meant that there was space to escape and gain some quiet time if required.
The owner was there to greet us when we arrived and provided a tour of the facilities , he also provided some really useful advice about the local area. In addition there was a information folder provided with the villa that gave some more hints and tips for good restaurants and things to do in the locality and beyond. We had no problems during our stay , however if we had, having met and spoken with Colin the owner I had confidence that any issues would have ben resolved swiftly.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property it was lovely and just what we were looking for. It is Situated about 1km outside Pollensa on a quiet road and so I would recommend that that having a car would be worthwhile to make the most of the location. The nearest Beach is about 4 km and we managed to visit a number of them during our stay as well as markets in Pollensa and Alcudia.
What a lovely place the town house turned out to be, really peaceful, a great place to chill and relax. The house itself is in a perfect spot in the old town and is well laid out with everything you might need. It's lovely and cool on the inside, on what turned out to very hot days, and had the added benefit of a pool in a secluded courtyard that wasn't overlooked - great for a dip after several hours on a bike! There's also a lovely sunken bath in the bathroom where you can while away the time with a nice glass of red, before either dining out or eating in.
We've stayed in Majorca before and fell in love with the old town of Pollensa and it's Sunday market so the house was ideally situated to explore the town at our leisure. We found some very good restaurants, one just a few hundred meters from the house, and great cafes for breakfast. There a really good supermarket only 10 minutes on foot, a couple of minutes by car, from the house offering a great selection of local wines, cheeses etc. Port Pollensa is a 10 minute car ride away, 20 minutes by bike or an hour on foot and is a lovely seaside town with a great beach. This is also the place where we hired a couple of mountain bikes for 2-weeks and was recommended by the villa owner.
We will definitely be returning to stay in Pollensa and wouldn't bother looking for anywhere else to stay as this townhouse was just PERFECT!
We just had 2 wonderful weeks at Villa Can Roca with our extended family.
The grounds are beautiful, secluded and extensive with lots of different areas to cater for the children as well as the grandparents.
The villa was beautiful, full of character and had everything we needed.
The location was great too, 20 minutes walk in to town and 10 minutes drive from the beaches of calla san vincente.
Colin was very hospitable.
Would love to return!
This finca enjoys a private location just 1km from the lovely old town of Pollensa with the dramatic backdrop of the Tramuntana Mountains, 4km inland from the coastal resort of Puerto Pollensa. The property is located just off the old beach road from Pollensa to Puerto Pollensa. The old town has a fine selection of pavement cafe bars, shops and restaurants within walking distance. Close by is the challenging 9 hole golf course Pollensa ,and the coastal 18 holes of Alcanada 10km away. Pollensa Bay with its beautiful coastline and sandy beaches is a short drive away were you can enjoy more culinary and shopping delights, a little further north will take you to the exclusive bay of Formentor where members of the royal family have holidayed. Winston Churchill also frequented the Hotel there and even today you are likely to brush shoulders with powerful politicians and high society celebrity who enjoy this Caribbean like setting. The fantastic market can be found on a Sunday at Pollensa
