Ca’n Demana, quite simply, is a gorgeous hidden gem! Bursting with Mallorcan charm (the original building is over 100 years old) this appealing former farmhouse has been lovingly transformed into a wonderfully welcoming, extremely well appointed and imaginatively equipped holiday home.

Tucked into a peaceful wooded corner of the famously scenic Colonya Valley where an irresistible air of gentle relaxation permeates, one would never know that such good amenities, including several excellent restaurants and some lovely sandy beaches, are all easily accessed in just a few minutes’ drive.

The home-style décor of the interior effortlessly captures that elusive but most compelling of combinations; an authentic sense of bygone times seamlessly fused with 21st Century comfort and convenience.

A wealth of characterful detail which includes sturdy wooden cross beams and door lintels, haphazard mosaic-style stone flooring, oak-fronted kitchen units and cleverly chosen rural ephemera sits comfortably alongside modern furnishings and facilities, a tasteful bedroom colour scheme, contemporary bathroom ceramics and eye-catching artwork.

The long list of tempting attributes continues outside where Demana’s mature grounds host a kidney-shaped private pool fringed by lawn, shaded terracing and a hot tub, while younger (or more active) family members have an all-weather multi-sports court, 6 hole putting green, table tennis and even a trampoline to enjoy.

With striking scenery and beaches, restaurants and bars to suit every budget, a golf course, tennis courts, numerous cycling and walking trails, a nature reserve, boat trips and water sports all close by, we cannot recommend Pollença and Ca’n Demana more highly for a definitive Mediterranean holiday.

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

Great Things to Do Near Ca'n Demana

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.

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.

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.

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.

Palma - Capital City

The capital of Mallorca is well worth a visit. The Cathedral, Almudaina Palace and Bellver Castle are very interesting historial buildings, then there are several contemporary art museums as well as plenty of shops.

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.

Scenic drive to the north east

Going further afield, in an easterly direction, drive through the resorts of Playa de Muro and Ca'n Picafort, and then towards Artà where one of the local trades is basket making. Find a country lane to the hermitage of Betlem where the views overlook Colònia de Sant Pere in the Bay of Alcúdia. Back to Artà and, if you are interested in prehistoric building, then visit the Poblat de Ses Païsses before carrying on to Capdepera to see the castle.

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.

Sunday morning market

The market in Pollença 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. Have a look inside the church while you are there as it is quite impressive.

The famous caves of Drach

The most spectacular caves on the island are the Caves of Drach in Portocristo, where one of the largest underground lakes is to be found. Visits are on the hour. Further north, at Canyamel, are the Caves of Artà which are not quite so commercial.

Valldemossa

This beautiful town is where Chopin spent a winter living in the Carthusian Monastery – a very interesting monastery with its old pharmacy.

Visit to 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.

Visit an historical stately home

A visit to La Granja in Esporles is well worthwhile. La Granja is a large historical mansion with gardens, fountains, ancient trees and plants, wild and domestic animals, where you can also see a demonstration of ancient handicrafts, tools and machinery and taste the Mallorcan specialities such as jams, cheese, fig cake, sobrassada and moscatel.

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.

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.

Planetarium

On the road between Sencelles and Costitx is the Mallorca Planetarium where in the evenings from Tuesday to Saturday, they show a programme about the stars and, weather permitting, a look at the stars and moon through enormous telescopes. (Best to book.)Tel: (09.30-13.30) 689 686 557 or 649 997 752.cienciaplanetarium@gmail.com

La Reserva Aventur

A nature reserve, founded in 1986, with an area of 2.5 million m² located in the south-west of Majorca, in Puigpuñyent, some 17 km from Palma. La Reserva can be found at the foot of the Galatzó Mountain, one of the island's better known mountains standing over 1000 metres tall. The reserve has abundant vegetation of wide variety thanks to the range in altitude from the valley right to the top of the mountain, many are indigenous to Mallorca. There are also many animals including three brown bears, ostriches, emus, deer, wild donkeys, goats, peacocks and numeous geese and ducks, all of whom live amongst the caves, forest and waterfalls. There activities including rock climbing, zip wires and bridges, a bar with BBQ and picnic area, a pool with waterfalls, a prey flight demonstration and a petting zoo for the youngsters. Open daily all year round www.lareservamallorca.com/new/en/

Go to the beach!

At Port de Pollença the beach is spacious, has all amenities, parking along the seafront, and if it gets too hot there is a little playground in a small wood for a respite from the sun.

Appreciate the beautifully rugged coastline from the sea

From Port de Soller it is possible to take a boat trip round the magnificent rugged coastline to Sa Calobra and see the Torrent de Pareis.

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.
