There is so much to like about Arengada. Full of rural charm and traditional Mallorcan style this superbly restored farmhouse sits on a quiet country lane in ample lawned grounds within easy distance of several sandy beaches as well as the excellent amenities of Pollença Old Town. Embraced by the craggy Tramuntana foothills, the views from pool, garden, terrace and bedrooms are both dramatic and gorgeous!

Her family home for several generations Malena, the owner, looks after the property with great care and pride.

There is a wealth of space to enjoy and thoughtful touches abound both inside and out particularly in the décor which acknowledges the past while remaining firmly rooted in the present; terracotta floor tiles, walls of exposed ‘mares’ stone, sloping wood beamed ceilings, colourful ceramics, attractive artefacts and a notable collection of artwork from celebrated local artists Noray and Dionis Bennassar all add immense character.

Conveniently accessed from the kitchen an impressive vine-shaded dining terrace looks directly across to the private pool while the heady scent of lavender, thyme and rosemary wafts across the immaculately maintained grounds.

A respected local restaurant as well as two large supermarkets are within 1km of the house and it is exactly 3km to the famous central square of Pollença Old Town with a superb choice of additional amenities en route.

Offering broad appeal across a range of tastes, ages (and desired acitivity levels!) impressive sandy beaches, scenic boat trips, boat hire, scuba diving, golf, tennis, wine tasting, walking/cycling trails (including cycle hire) are all close by and easily found.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Arengada

Explore the old town of Pollença

Stroll around the old town of Pollença. It's definitely worth making the effort to climb the 365 steps up to the Calvary church and browsing in the curious little shops before sitting down to relax with a drink and dinner in one of the many popular restaurants in the pedestrianised squares.

Formentor beach and lighthouse

A scenic drive will take you to Formentor Lighthouse - the road is quite narrow in places. At the top of the hill out of Port de Pollença, it is worth stopping at the viewpoint to see El Colomer rock. Although the beach at Formentor is not very large, it has clear shallow water ideal for children and adults alike, with some good waters for snorkelling. Go early, with a picnic.

Visit Pollença market on Sunday morning -

this is a colourful bustling event where you can buy your locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a few souvenirs and presents. Have a look inside the church which is very impressive.

Local vineyard

Visit the local vineyard, Bodegues Ca’n Vidalet, and try a truly local wine. The entrance to this vineyard is on the left about 1.8 kms down the road from the cockerell roundabout towards Alcudia (Ma-2201).

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

If you would like to do some snorkelling in clear, deep water, go towards Alcúdia, turn off towards the La Victoria headland until you reach Mal Pas. Beside a fish restaurant serving lobster (choose your own), there is an excellent area off the rocks for snorkelling.

Old Roman town of Alcúdia

Tuesday market in Old Alcúdia is interesting and has a plentiful supply of locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, then just stroll round the pedestrianised old Roman town where caper plants are growing out of the main massive thick stone walls surrounding the town. The local council offer a free guided tour around the historical centre of Alcúdia old town on Wednesdays & Fridays during the summer months.

Birdwatchers’ Paradise

Ornithologists will know about the birdwatching area at the Albufera and Albufereta, where you can see several different species of wading birds, amongst others, especially during the migrating season.

Caves of Campanet

The beautiful Caves of Campanet, found by a shepherd about 100 years ago, are not too far away and worth a visit to see the fascinating stalagmite and stalactite formations. These caves are not too commercialised and visits are on the hour. For the most impressive caves, go to Portocristo on the east coast and visit the Caves of Drach which houses one of the largest underground lakes in Europe.

Inca for a shopping expedition

A short drive on the motorway takes you to Inca which has a good shopping centre but also has several leather factory outlets including Camper shoes. Nearby is Puig de Magdalena (puig = hillock, pronounced pooch) with a little chapel at the top and a restaurant which serves good typical Mallorcan food while enjoying the most splendid view over the surrounding countryside.

Lluc is not just a monastery

Take the mountain road from Pollença to the Monastery at Lluc. Visit the museum and the chapel - you may be fortunate enough to hear the Blauets Choir singing. Make your way to the huge cross behind the monastery for the fabulous views out to sea.

Visit Palma – by train

If you'd like to visit the capital, Palma, and are not keen on driving, then take the train from Sa Pobla. Palma is an excellent shopping centre and has many interesting historical buildings, museums and art galleries to visit.

Tramuntana mountain road to Deià

Drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads via Inca, Lluc and Sóller, taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including the two lakes/reservoirs, and passing through several world-renowned towns of Fornalutx, Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous writers, painters and musicians.

Sóller and its Port by train

The old-fashioned train ride through the mountains from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller and back, including the tram to the Port of Sóller through the orange groves and back, and just sitting in the church square in Sóller enjoying a drink and watching the world go by.

Paella on the beach

Spend a day at the beach between Ca'n Picafort and the area east of Alcúdia, at Ses Casetes des Capellans, where you can enjoy a tasty paella or seafood dishes at one of the beach restaurants while enjoying the sea and sun on a long and sandy beach.

Play a round of golf!

Mallorca has a great variety of golf courses and the closest to Puerto Pollença is the 9-hole course at Pollença. Aucanada has an 18-hole course with beautiful views overlooking the Bay of Alcúdia.

Go out in a boat

Boat trips from the local coves and ports can make a lovely day or half day out from Port de Pollença or Port d'Alcúdia going to Formentor or round the headlands.

Market days in Sineu and Inca

If you like bustling markets lining the streets, then Inca market on Thursday is the busiest you will find on the island. However, Sineu market on Wednesday is unusual as it still sells livestock such as goats, sheep, rabbits and ducks. The fresh fruit and vegetable market is up the hill in a smaller square at the front of the church.

Fornalutx, Deià and Valldemossa

Drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including two lakes/reservoirs, and passing through several world-renowned towns like Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous painters, writers and musicians. Fornalutx is one of the prettiest towns in Mallorca.

Alfàbia gardens

If you enjoy gardens, these Moorish gardens, right at the entrance to the Sóller tunnel, are a must. They are cool on a hot day, with lots of water and wonderful trees and exotic plants to admire. A small bar serves fresh orange and lemon juice.

Glassworks and Museum

There are 3 glassworks in Mallorca open to the public: Menestralia at Exit 35 on the Ma-13 near Campanet; Gordiola, established in 1719, is near Algaida on the Ma-15 near Exit 20 on the Manacor-Palma road; Lafiore is on the Palma-Valldemossa road. You can watch craftsmen working, see the kilns, museum and shop.
