This lovingly restored traditional Mallorcan country home revels in an enviable location just 5 minutes by car from the winding back streets of historic old town Pollença and the heart of the town’s surprisingly sophisticated bar and restaurant scene whilst 10 minutes to the popular shores of both Cala San Vicenç and Puerto Pollensa beaches.

Set in well-established Mediterranean gardens with a flurry of colourful flowering shrubs, palms and olive trees C’an Pontarro retains its rural ambience perfectly, offering privacy and seclusion accompanied by mountain views of the Puig de Maria with its 14th century monastery perched defiantly on the top. Relaxing within this verdant oasis beside the attractive free-form pool couldn’t be easier, with a choice of Balinese beds and sun beds dotted amongst the shady terraces. A large covered barbecue casita with shady dining area overlooking the pool provides the opportunity to cook as well as eat outdoors in this idyllic spot.

Inside interiors are light, airy and comfortably furnished with taste and attention to detail, offering modern convenience with attractive highlights of traditional Mallorcan stone, warm tones of wood and ornate tiles. 
On the ground floor, a well fitted modern kitchen with large island unit has everything needed for easy holiday catering alongside a roomy open plan living/dining area with wood burning stove, plenty of seating that overflows in to the hall area with further living space and patio doors leading to the main terrace, ensuring plenty of flexible options for large groups to spread out comfortably.

Four spacious bedrooms are also on the ground floor, two with en suite bathrooms and two conveniently placed adjacent to the family bathroom whilst for added dramatic (or romantic) effect, the principal master bedroom is housed in the impressive turret accessed by its own external stone steps. A four poster bed relishes fabulous tree top views of the surrounding area with a decorative marble and mosaic tiled en suite bathroom – a prime spot for enjoying remarkable countryside views from your very own turret suite.

Location of C'an Pontarro


Great Things to Do Near C'an Pontarro

Museum Alcudia

Visit the Sa Bassa Blanca museum of modern and contemporary art of which the Hollywood actor Michael Douglas is a patron

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 and Fridays during the summer months.

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.

Go to the market

Pollença market on Sunday morning 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.

Puig de Maria

The start of the walk uphill to Puig de Maria (puig=hillock) is just before the rooster roundabout on the right of the main road towards Port de Pollença. It's best to go first thing in the morning, wearing sensible shoes and don't forget your camera. Take a bottle of water with you although there is a bar at the top.

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.

Palma de Mallorca, an interesting capital city

There are many interesting historical buildings to visit in Palma, including the Cathedral, Almudaina Palace and Bellver Castle, as well as museums and art galleries. Palma is also an excellent shopping centre.

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.

Visit another island - Menorca!

Menorca is just 25 miles away, it is a great island to explore with lots of undeveloped coves. Mahón, the capital, and Cuitadella have beautiful architecture and excellent waterfront restaurants. Daily ferry from Cala Ratjada to Cuitadella.

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.

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. Alcanada has an 18-hole course with beautiful views overlooking the Bay of Alcúdia.

The old ruined castle at Alaró

Make your way to the top of Castell d'Alaró - take water to drink as the last part of the journey has to be done on foot. The views from the top are breathtakingly beautiful! On the way down enjoy a meal at the Restaurant Es Verger where they serve tasty roast lamb done in a traditional Mallorcan oven.
