About the property

Villa in Pollensa - Peaceful Location Within 10 Minutes Drive Of Pollenca Town And The Beach

Can Collet is a private and well appointed Villa, built in traditional Mallorcan style with a lovely spacious garden complete with fig and lemon trees, private swimming pool and a large shady terrace ideal for alfresco dining. The Villa is situated 10 minutes drive from sandy beacheks, and from Pollenca town, close enough to the amenities but in a peaceful and private setting with views over the mountains, spectacular as the sun sets. As the Villa is all on one level and the garden fully enclosed it is perfect for children or those with limited mobility.

About Sue Garfitt

I live in Warwickshire with my husband and we had always been interested in buying a home in the Spanish sunshine. After some deliberating and a number of visits to the island over the past 15 months , we bought Finca Can Collet in May 2013 from a Mallorcan family who used the finca as a place to entertain friends and family for BBQ's during the summer.

Sue Garfitt purchased this villa in 2013

Why Sue Garfitt chose Deia - Soller Region

We bought a property in Mallorca because there were fond memories of the island as a child when I used to holiday here with my parents. We love the north of the island for the combination of sandy beaches and marinas, rugged coastline and the historic old towns of Pollenca and Alcudia.

Being by the sea, and because the island is so compact you are never far away from a beautiful coastline or beach. The island is easily accessible from all European destinations, with a very efficient airport.

The Mallorcan people are very friendly and welcoming especially to tourists which makes you feel more at home. English is widely spoken on the island so you can always make yourself understood, and there are many nationalities here which gives it a cosmopolitan and relaxed ambience.

What makes this villa unique

The property is very convenient for the town and local shops as well as a choice of beaches within a few miles. The pool, garden and outside terrace are the best features of the property - there is enough space for all the family to relax and chill out. It is in a peaceful location with great views over the mountains. As you sit in the garden and the light changes so does the colour of the mountains - you can see Puig Santa Maria from the finca which is one of the peaks used by the British Olympic cycling team who train in the Tramantura mountains. Watching the sun set over the Puig is a special moment worth savouring with a glass of wine!

Another wonderful stay at Finca Can Collet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Finca Can Collet last year and re-booked whilst still there. We have also re-booked for next year. Sue has a truly lovely villa and is so easy to communicate with and so accommodating. The outside terrace is beautiful all day from sunrise to sunset. My husband and I also used the bikes that Sue provides. We didn't travel far but a cycle round the area was a lovely way to end the day. It is wonderful that these are provided. A truly lovely villa in an idyllic location. Thank you Sue.

Great villa in superb location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is really lovely and definitely ticks all the boxes! Spacious, clean and well equipped. The outdoor space is huge and we all enjoyed the pool. Everything is close by-beaches, restaurants, supermarkets are all within close proximity. We stayed for a week in October 2017 and the weather was hot and sunny every day.

Superb Villa in a beautiful and peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed. Following a very early start, and some travel delays we arrived hot, bothered and in need of a cold drink and a villa that was going to deliver everything I had read about,and it does just that. Having rented several villas over the years this is by far a treat, and very much a home from home. You will find the villa is very well equipped with everything you will possibly need for your stay, as the weather was so hot we spent all of our time outside but our very big kids used the DVD once for a movie evening in the beautiful lounge. You will need a car for this villa, or if you want Sue has some great bikes for use, we took them for a trip around the garden !! we were just too busy using the pool and reading books. The ping pong was used a few times for some healthy competition any many a trip to Pollensa for some wonderful meals out with a great choice of restaurants. Alternatively you could visit the local Lidl (we did many times!) stock up lock the doors and relax, enjoy.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Great property, we loved the spacious house and garden. It really was a home from home, with everything you needed. The pool is not heated but don't worry about that - it's not cold, and just perfect for cooling off from the Majorcan sun. And quite deep, good for adults but you would need to be careful if you have small kids. As previous reviews have stated, lots of stuff is already here in terms of basic supplies (e.g. condiments, kitchen roll, foil etc); we replaced anything we finished, which is a good (but not manadtory!) arrangement.

The bbq area is good, and we had lots of fun with the pizza oven. We even progressed to dessert pizzas on the second firing.

The road up to the property is pretty narrow to turn into / out of - don't hire a big car unless you know what you're doing!

We had a lovely time here.

Owner's Response: Dave so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. And that the pizza oven was a big hit! It's true that the lane to the villa is quite narrow .....although big enough for a small lorry ! But at least the gates to the villa open out fully to allow full access. I hope you and the family look to return next year. Sue

A gem in the Pollensa countryside

  • 5 of 5

After spending many years renting Fincas/villas in this area, Finca Can Collet is by far the best we have stayed in. A true home from home, outstanding on all counts. Whilst retaining it's Spanish character, the furnishings inside and out are excellent. The garden/pool area is superb, private and peaceful. Just a five minute drive from Pollensa, this Finca is everything and more you would require on holiday. We will definitely return.

Can Collet is truely a place to chill, in fact you will find it hard to leave the pool or the hammock unless you make the effort 😊

Owner's Response: Hi Elayne So pleased you found the villa peaceful and relaxing. I really do try to make it feel homely for my guests. Because thats one of the benefits of choosing a villa over a hotel - you get freedom and privacy but it also needs to feel homely. I'd love to welcome you back when you're next on the island. Sue
