What a convenient location! With one of Mallorca's most iconic, unspoilt Roman towns on your doorstep, the position of Ca'n Menonge is hard to beat. Together with sister property Ca'n Pep this pretty house, on the road leading from Pollença towards Lluc monastery, is only 800m from the celebrated main square of Pollença itself and therefore makes an excellent choice for those not wishing to rely on a car as every essential amenity can be found within walking distance.

A wonderfully historic spot celebrated for its unique 'old-world' atmosphere, Pollença's winding cobbled backstreets are home to fresh bread, fish, fruit and vegetable stores, various interesting boutiques and a well-respected selection of cafés, tapas bars and excellent restaurants. Every Sunday morning the main square comes to life when the weekly market takes over creating a vibrant weekly spectacle that should not be missed.

With an annual diary of activities that includes a diverse choice of exhibitions, processions, concerts and sporting events this is a town where there always seems to something interesting happening.

Most notable event of all takes place over the summer months when the centrally located old cloisters host one of the Mediterranean's finest cultural festivals featuring a range of world-class artistes performing across a variety of artistic disciplines.

The mature, well-screened grounds of Ca'n Menonge form a little oasis within which it is hard to believe you are so close to so much! Younger party members will certainly enjoy the lawn and private pool with its family-friendly Roman steps, overlooked by a lovely covered dining terrace with in built barbecue adjacent. Internally, décor, facilities and fittings which include air conditioning in each bedroom, have all been chosen with care.

The sandy coves of Cala Sant Vicenç (6.3km) as well as the impressive swathe of Pollença Bay (6.5km) are each within a ten minute drive and Pollença golf club is only 5.5km. Cyclists can choose from a variety of trails and terrains in the surrounding countryside while keen walkers are equally spoilt being able to access many different paths around the Tramuntana foothills as well as some gorgeously scenic coastal routes.

Nearer to home, a climb up the famous 'calvario' or along the serpentine track to the monastery atop Puig de Maria will be rewarded with the most breathtaking views to the sea and, with luck, even as far as Menorca.

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

Great Things to Do Near Ca'n Menonge

Panoramic views from the top

The start for the walk up to the top of Puig de Maria is on the road from Ca'n Menonge to Pollença, just past the rooster roundabout - 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.

Simulated Battle of the Moors and Christians...

Pollença is famous for its simulated Battle of the Moors and the Christians which takes place on 01-02 August. The whole town takes part in the celebrations.

Explore Pollença

Walk into town past the Roman bridge, make your way up the 365 steps to the Calvary church from Monte-sion, before sitting down to relax with a drink and/or dinner in one of the pedestrianised squares and people watch.

Sunday market in Pollença

Walk into town and visit Pollença market on a Sunday morning - a colourful, bustling event where you can buy locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables as well as souvenirs and presents. Have a look inside the church which is quite impressive.

Formentor beach and lighthouse

Formentor, famous for the exclusive hotel, has a sandy and rocky beach good for snorkelling. Drive over the hill from Port de Pollença - about half an hour, stopping at the viewpoint on the way for the magnificent straight drops down to the sea and the rock Es Colomer. You can also go by ferry boat - about 20 minutes. The lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula is also worth the ride although the road is quite narrow in places.

Visit Palma - go 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. Try the touristic bus which takes you to the most renowned places.

Waterparks, Marineland and Aquarium

There are several waterparks in Mallorca - the nearest is in Port d'Alcúdia and in the south at S'Arenal and Magalluf.. Marineland, at Costa den Blanes, has wonderful dophin, sea lion show and parrot shows and the exotic Mallorca Aquarium is at Playa de Palma.

Lluc Monastery

Turn left out of the property and follow the mountain road to Lluc Monastery - visit the museum and chapel, where you may be fortunate to hear the Blauets Choir sing. At the back of the monastery there are magnificent sea views and the rock formations are fascinating.

Caves at Campanet

The Caves of Campanet, discovered by a shepherd about 100 years ago are not far from Pollença and well worth a visit - interesting stalagmite and stalactite formations. These caves are not too commercialised - visits are on the hour. For Mallorca's most impressive caves - go to the Caves of Drach at Portocristo.

Local vineyards

There are several vineyards in Mallorca where you can visit and try the wine -Vinyes Mortitx - on the road Pollença-Lluc road at KM 10,9; Bodegues Macià Batle is at the entrance to Santa Maria on the main road from Consell; at 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.

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.

Scenic drive to the north-east

Going further afield, drive in an easterly direction through the resorts of Port d'Alcúdia and Ca'n Picafort towards Artà where basket making is one of the local trades. Then take 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 Paisses before carrying on to Capdepera to see the castle.

Sóller and its port the old-fashioned way

Take the old-fashioned train ride through the mountains from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller, include the tram to the Port of Sóller through the orange groves and back. Then just sit in the church square in Sóller, enjoy the atmosphere and watch the world go while enjoying a fresh orange juice.

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

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

Birdwatching

Ornithologists will know the birdwatching area at the Albufera and Albufereta where you can see several different species of wading birds, amongst others, or in the mountains you could catch sight of eagles, falcons, buzzards and the black vulture!

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.

Golf courses in Mallorca

Mallorca has a great variety of golf courses and the closest to Ca'n Menonge is at Pollença itself - a 9-hole course. Aucanada has an 18-hole course overlooking the Bay of Alcúdia.

Shopping for shoes

A 20-minute 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.

Boat Trips in the Bays of Pollença or Alcúdia

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 around the headlands.

Tramuntana Mountain scenery
