Among the main sightseeing of the town, there is the Calvary hill with its 365-step stairs and the Puig de Maria. Pollença is also the starting point of several beautiful excursions going into the Tramuntana range.

Excellent and Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband are staying here for a week and are loving the farmhouse. It has everything you want, it is very well equipped and has some lovely touches, it looks new or recently refurbished. It's ideal for one or two couples, nice and private, the pool is lovely, it's a perfect place to escape to the sun and enjoy a relaxing holiday. You do get a bit of road noise as it's about 100m from the road but there is a lot of vegetation and beautiful gardens so you don't really notice it. You could walk into Pollenca as it's about a half a mile or so away but you have to walk along the main road and there is no footpath once you have turned off, so we took the car. Restaurants are plentiful and some have 3 courses for 15euro, so very good but you do have to search for them. The BBQ area is excellent and there is ping pong for some fun. I will be recommending this to our friends and family and we hope to return again. I'm writing this review sitting under their porch as they have WiFi, which is excellent for us.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of a holiday house, we have just spent a January week here to escape the snow in the UK and it really exceeded all of our expectations. Unlike other holiday houses we have rented out of season it was very well appointed, spotlessly clean and extremely warm, cosy and comfortable. The house is cleverly designed, not only is it very attractive it really makes the most of the space and was far more spacious than we were expecting. The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner has absolutely everything you need (we made very good use of the wood burner during our stay). The outside terrace, pool and BBQ area is stunning and whilst we could not make much use of it during this trip in the summer you would not move far from here. Both bedrooms are a good size as are the two bathrooms and four people could easily share this house without feeling on top of each other. A January week in Pollenca is a different experience to the summer but it's much warmer than the UK and when the sun does come out it's possible to enjoy a coffee outside. Many of the restaurants close during the winter months but there is still enough open if you don't want to cook in (and everything in the house if you do). We absolutely loved this house and have already made plans to return in the summer to enjoy the pool and outside space.

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful villa for two weeks - it was fantastic. All correspondence with the owner was dealt withi in a prompt and efficient manner. The villa was spotless and exactly as described in the particularls. We were met by the owners who showed us round and told us how to get to the supermarkets and about the great market in Pollensa Old Town on Sundays. We were given clean towels twice a week and the beds were changed for us half way through the holiday. We were also left fresh eggs some mornings - the chickens are very entertaining and we also had a couple of escapees to deal with - sure it was the same ones all the time! The villa is a short drive from the old town and about 10-15 minutes from Pollensa - I agree that the road is not very safe for walking along especially at night. There are plenty of restaurants in the old town and we tended to eat there most evenings. The villa is well equipped and had everything you could need for a family holiday. The pool is lovely - no horrible chlorine smell to deal with. We were sad to leave and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa in July 2012 and thought that it was perfect. The owner was prompt in replying to emails and was very friendly & helpful throughout our stay. The villa itself is quite new and in excellent condition. The kitchen was modern and well-equipped and there was a good selection of cutlery, crockery & glasses. All of the appliances were clean & worked well. It was nice to see that there were some staples provided such as washing-up liquid, dishwasher tablets, tinfoil, insect spray, barbecue charcoal etc .

The villa was an adequate size for 2 adults & 2 children. There was a 32" LCD TV, satellite TV and a DVD player. The aircon worked well and there was plenty of hot water for showers. Outside, the pool wasn't the world's biggest but was fine for our kids. There was also a table-tennis table and chickens to feed (although they are apparently very clever and we had a couple of escapes to deal with!). The sunloungers and parasol were new and in good condition.

The villa is about a mile outside the centre of Pollensa and about 50m from a busy road. It was well-screened from the road by trees and bushes and road noise was honestly not a great problem. I would say that the road was too busy to be safe to walk on at night so we just used our car to go into town in the evenings. There is a brand new LIDL and a slightly scruffy Eroski supermarket about 5 minutes' drive away.

The only possible criticisms I would make are the lack of smoke alarms and that there was no internet access.

This was an outstandingly good villa and we would definitely stay there again.

Highly recommendable

  • 5 of 5

Impeccable house, super saltwater pool. We couldn't drive the children out of the pool.

Remember to buy some watershoes for the kids, from day one, as the rough stone bottom of the pool, will work as sandpaper on their feets.

Only downside of the house is a little traffic-noise from the highway. This is only notable from the terrasse. We spent all week either on the terrasse in the shade or in the perfectly tempered pool.

A perfect base for your Mallorca trip if you are 2-4 persons and you want to spoil yourself.

If you like a bit of hiking, take the beautiful walk from the house to the top of Puig de Maria just north of the house.

The owners is a lovely couple who welcome you on arrival, but otherwise let you get along with your holiday.

Highly recommendable!

PS.: Wacht out for the Speed Cameras on the freeway. Just got a greating card from Mallorca ....a fine on 100 Euro!

La Rafal de Baix - what a fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I've just returned from a week at the wonderful La Rafal de Baix!

And I honestly cannot recommend it enough. The villa is beautifully presented, with everything you could possibly need for some time away from home, and the pool is "wow" as my 8 yr old daughter put it!

Having a 3 year old too, I was a little concerned by the steps down to the terrace, and the different levels of the garden, but he mastered it all on day 1 and my worries disappeared.

The outside BBQ was a hit with my husband, and he came back with many wonderful thing to BBQ from the deli in Pollenca.

The pool was without a doubt the favourite of my children, and I honestly don't think they ever got out, apart from our trips to the beach! They were also entertained by the chickens, and the owners were kind enough to leave some food so the children could feed them every morning.

The nearby town of Pollenca is less than a 5minute drive away, and although possible to walk I would not recommend walking it at night as the road is not lit well enough for cars to see pedestrians. We spent most of our evenings exploring the winding streets of this old town....and climbing the 365 steps upto the chapel....in the heat this is not for the faint-hearted!

Our favourite beach was Formentor - and although the drive through the hills was a little hair-raising the first time we soon became used to it! Don't be caught out by the varying costs of the sunbeds though! My daughter would have been quite happy to spend her day lounging on 60euro a day sunbeds had we let her!!

Without a doubt we would love to come back to this villa. It is everything, and more, that you would expect from the description and the pictures on this website. If you have already booked it, then I hope you have as good a time as we did! If you're thinking about booking it, go for it, you won't be disappointed!

Pollença offers to the tourist both sea and mountain, and ideal combination for those who want to relax while enjoying nature, and also ideal for people interested in cycling. The town itself is just six kilometers (less than four miles) from the coast (Cala Sant Vicenç and Port of Pollença), and within the Tramuntana mountain range, in the middle of a very beautiful landscape. Pollença is a village full of tradition with genuine festivities like the processions at Easter, the “Moors and Christians” and the “Patrona” (from 27 Jul to 2 Aug). All Sunday mornings there are a local market that takes place in the main square (just one minute walking from the house).
