Sitting off the main road between Pollença and Sa Pobla this charming country house boasts a lovely private pool, impressive rural outlook and an appealing, traditionally welcoming interior that offers an exceptional amount of space for just two people. With such a high level of comfort plus the convenience of having all amenities including the many excellent restaurants of historic, iconic Pollença only a few minutes' (5km) drive away Ca’n Paner is a wonderful choice as a holiday base.

Meticulously looking after the property, Maria and her son Jaume do everything they can to ensure that each visitor has the most enjoyable, relaxing stay possible - the accompanying photographs and comments from past guests being a clear testament to their success.

Though you would never guess Ca’n Paner was once a stables and animal shed! Modern décor and conveniences may have removed any semblance of this former life but look a little closer and features such as the high sloping wood beamed ceilings, cobbled vestibule, thick olive wood front doors (handmade by Jaume) plus various well preserved artefacts and photographs not only add character but are also a subtle nod to an illustrious farming past.

Outside sweet scented hibiscus borders the long front terrace making this a lovely place in which to dine while admiring the pastoral views across the private pool.

A bustling market takes over the square in Pollença every Sunday morning while golf (3km), sandy beaches (Cala San Viçens is 11.5km, Port de Pollença 12.5km), cycle routes, walking trails, wine-tasting and bird watching are just a few of the activities found in the surrounding area. Palma makes a great day trip, particularly via the scenic local train that runs from nearby Sa Pobla (9km).

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Ca'n Paner

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.

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.

Basket making, prehistoric buildings and a castle

Going further afield, drive through the resorts of Puerto Alcudia and Ca’n Picafort towards Arta – here in Arta one of the local trades is making baskets - then take a country lane to the hermitage of Betlem where the views overlook Colonia de San Pedro in the Bay of Alcudia. Back to Arta and if you are interested in prehistoric building, then visit the Poblat de Ses Païsses before carrying on to Capdepera to see the castle.

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.

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.

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.

Hidropark in Alcudia

Is the nearest waterpark for guests in staying in the north of the island. Open from beginning of May until end of October.http://www.alcudia-waterpark.com/

Go to 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.Reservations : Tel Cape Balear 902 100 444

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.

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).

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.

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.

Visit Palma - by train

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. Take the train from Sa Pobla and take the hassle out of parking in the city.

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.

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

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.

Walk to the top of Puig de Maria

Just past the rooster roundabout on the road from Pollença to Palma on the left, is the start of the walk up to the top of Puig de Maria. It's best to go first thing in the morning wearing sensible shoes. Don't forget your camera and a bottle of water although there is a bar at the top. The views over the north coast are outstanding.
