From this lovely property the best of all worlds can easily be enjoyed with both the covered front terrace and sparkling private swimming pool boasting beautiful views of the mature, well-tended gardens and surrounding rural locale yet, at the same time you are only a ten minute drive from the impressive beach of Puerto Pollença or the celebrated Roman town of Pollença both full of amenities and many excellent restaurants.

Owned by the same local family for many years, C’al Rei has been lovingly cared for and retains the feel, atmosphere and appeal of a traditional Mallorcan rural house.

Internally, simple yet stylish décor including pretty local ceramics and fabrics, terracotta tiled floors and various items of rural memorabilia, creates a very welcoming ambience. The kitchen is a good size, an additional snug/mezzanine sits to one end of the elongated living/dining room and those lovely rural views are easily admired via large picture windows in each of the air conditioned bedrooms. All in all this is a property in which guests will quickly feel at home.

Focal point externally is the alluring private pool, bordered by a garden of scented rose bushes, tall palms and fruit trees. To one side the large in-built barbecue has an  L-shaped covered terrace adjacent, perfect for outside dining on balmy summer evenings. A true labour of love for the current owners, mature gardens envelope the house and are a botanical feast of lawn, flora and fauna, interspersed with occasional pieces of modern art, further adding to the feeling of relaxed country living.

It is true to say that we did not want to leave this pastoral oasis and we are sure that you will not want to do so either however, do not overlook the myriad attractions of nearby Pollença town (4.3km) or, indeed, the beautiful beach and bay of Puerto Pollença (5.2km) and sandy cove beaches of Cala Sant Viçente (5.6km) which are all within easy reach.

Air conditioning usage is on a timer (12 hours per day)

Great Things to Do Near Ca'l Rei d'en Font

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sunday Market in Pollença

Market on Sunday morning is a colourful bustling event where you can buy your locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as souvenirs and presents. It's worth having a look inside the impressive church while you are there.

Lluc has more than a monastery

Follow the mountain road from Pollença to the monastery at Lluc and visit the chapel where you may be fortunate enough to hear the Blauets Choir. There is also a museum, and don't miss a small botanic garden at the back of the monastery which takes about 15 minutes to stroll around, or the rock formation in the shape of a camel.

Mallorca's water parks, Marineland and Aquarium

Mallorca's waterparks provide a fun day out for all the family; the nearest to Baldregat is at Port d'Alcúdia where there is also a mini-golf course! The others are in the south of the island at El Arenal and Magalluf. At Costa den Blanes there is Marineland which has dolphin, sea lion and parrots shows and an Aquarium at Ca'n Pastilla.

Battle of the Moors and Christians

Pollença is famous for its simulated Battle of the Moors and the Christians which takes place on the 1st and 2nd of August. The whole town takes part in the celebrations.

Birdwatching

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

Valldemossa and Deià

Drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including the two lake/reservoirs, and passing through several world renowned towns like Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous writers, painters and musicians. Look out for the wild mountain goats on the way.

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.

Pollença Classical Music Festival

The Pollença Classical Music Festival is held in July and August, featuring various well-known bands, quartets and soloists - a great variety of programmes to choose from.

Visit a local vineyard

There are several vineyards in Mallorca where you can visit and try the wine -Vinyes Mortitx is on the road to Pollença-Lluc road at KM 10,9; Bodegues Macià Batle is at the entrance to Santa Maria on the main road towards Consell; and in Binissalem is the better-known Bodega José L. Ferrer. No visits during the grape harvest in September although the wine festival in Binissalem is worth joining in.

Cala San Vicente

This delightful spot has 4 sandy cove beaches where the waters are crystal clear and ideal for snorkelling. There are a good selection of beachside bars and restaurants where a cooling drink or a delightful meal of fresh fish can be enjoyed while overlooking the beach.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Puig de Maria Walk

The start for the walk to the top of Puig de Maria is on the road towards Palma, a short way from the rooster roundabout on the left - it's best to go early in the morning. Don't forget your camera, wear sensible shoes and take water to drink although there is a bar at the top. The views over the north coast are outstanding.
