This house is in a quiet, pedestrian street in Pollensa, a rural town on the northern coast of Mallorca
The towns in the north of the island are a short drive – it is very easy to get around the island by car
There are many white sand beaches nearby with coves
Palma city is a 50 minute drive, and has great shopping, bars and good restaurants
Fly to Palma, Mallorca from London and most regional airports
The Priest’s House is 45 minutes drive from the airport
Car hire is not essential as the house is in a small town
Being in the town of Pollensa there is an endless choice of things to do. Lots of restaurants and shopping in the town will keep most people happy. There are nearby beaches and stunning countryside to enjoy. The rural villages of the north west are ancient and beautiful, the local houses are all made out of the same coloured stone as the mountains so they literally disappear like a multitude of chameleons dotting the area.
There is no shortage of walks in this part of Mallorca. Scale the Pollensa Heights for magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and rugged coastline. For a more relaxed experience try a gentle stroll along the Pine Walk in Puerto Pollensa ending up with a cold glass of wine at one of the restaurants dotted along it.
Mallorca has become a real foodie destination and Pollensa has its fair share of good restaurants. A moonlit meander around the streets of the old town will find you plenty of authentic local restaurants.
Bar Nou serves home made paella and fresh fish whilst the nearby Son Brull hotel offers luxurious dining with ingredients sourced from their own farm. The hotel also has a spa including a hamman where you really unwind.
The local golf club in Pollensa offers spectacular panoramic views of the Tramuntana mountains and has a wide range of activities to keep the whole family entertained. Alternatively, there are plenty of water sports in the bay of Pollen?ºa including boat rental, sailing lessons, windsurfing, water skiing, and diving.
The weekly market held in Pollensa on a Wednesday morning is well worth a visit- treat yourself to a traditional Mallorcan shopping basket and take your time savouring the local produce.
In the peaceful back streets of Pollenca in the north east of Mallorca we have discovered this wonderful house. Large and spread out across two buildings this is our new favourite town house.
The entrance is big and bright, polished concrete floors and white painted walls are married with beautiful stone architraves around the doorways. Many of the house’s original features have been kept – the owners have been painstaking in their design and conversion.
White stairs lead up to the bedrooms in the main house, the rooms all have their own spotless white bathrooms. Crisp white linen and fluffy towels adorn every room (this is more like a boutique hotel than a holiday villa!) and the polished concrete floors throughout ensure the rooms flow beautifully one into the next.
Back downstairs the sitting room and kitchen are understated and glamorous. There are reclaimed doors and cupboards in the kitchen with contemporary high end equipment. With a lovely large sitting and dining area you couldn’t fail but to relax totally here. A huge doorway leads out to the pool terrace where you can find any one of a number of hidden corners to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee or something a little stronger!
Just outside the house you will find yourself in the winding streets of Pollensa, wander down to the lively centre in the evening and enjoy a supper of fresh fish before drifting home to this haven of loveliness!
