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 beaches, 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 Pollença District

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!

Fabulous home from home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. My husband and two young children, age 6 and 3 spent a glorious week at Can Collet in October.

The outside area is amazing. There is so much space for the kids to run around and let off steam without worrying about disturbing other people.

The pool was "fresh" at this time of year but we all still took frequent dips in it regardless - We didn't want to fill our cases with inflatables, snorkel masks etc. and we didn't need to as they were also provided.

The outdoor Pizza Oven made by far the best pizzas we have ever tasted and to either sit and eat a family meal outside or have a cheeky glass of wine outside when the kids had gone to bed was really relaxing - lots of candles and outdoor lamps to light which added to the ambience . The villa itself is decorated so tastefully and to a very high spec, but yet really homely at the same time. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and both inside and out has been very well maintained. The owners really have thought of everything here, with lots of attention to detail and there really wasn't anything that we wanted, that wasn't provided.

Location-wise it was perfect for us. We have two very lively kids and although there was another family at the villa close by, we really felt like we were in our own little oasis. It is only a 10 minute drive to the beach (or a 20 minute run) and about the same to the old town. Apart from on our honeymoon, I don't think we've stayed in a nicer place, one which we were very sad to say goodbye to but will definitely be going back to very soon.

Since returning home and posting pictures of our holiday at Can Collet on our facebook, we have had lots of comments and questions from friends and family wanting to know how we found out about this place and how they could book and we didn't hesitate in passing on the details. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings, then this is the place for you.

Amazing villa with many added touches that really makes a difference

  • 5 of 5

The finishing touches make all the difference including; beach towels, candles, books, dvds, open fire for cold nights, we went 8th May and it was needed a couple of nights, although there is also heating in the villa but we didn't need that. There are flood lights, well kept grounds with lemon, fig and banana trees, wicker and wood outdoor furniture, lanterns, reasonably good Wi-Fi, a very well stocked kitchen, bean to cup coffee machine, fluffy towels, window screens to keep out bugs and last but not least posh hand cream and soap!

The villa is immaculately clean, and the host Sue's communication is professional, immediate, friendly and caring.

Worth knowing is while it is a short drive to the town and nearest shop, it is a bit too far to take a stroll down, probably a couple of miles maybe more. Access is also down a little lane which was just about wide enough for our people carrier but we didn't want to tackle that and the dark country lanes at night. Saying that cabs are cheap €9 into Pollenca and €12-14 to Port Pollenca.

If you are looking for a 'home feel' villa, a 'get away from it all' location then this is the place for you.

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.

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.

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.
