Ca'n Jaume Barretes stands majestically encompassed by lovingly cared for Mediterranean gardens, swaying palms provide shade as well as character to a spacious lawn that brings promise of endless hours of fun for smaller children. Bougainvillea creep up the terrace corner wall to add a splash of colour to the ornate Terracotta tiled summer kitchen, whilst the 12m pool evolves into the focal point of this oasis, as the sun reaches the height of midday.

The split-level design of the spacious interior creates a choice of niches in which to retreat. A bright, airy kitchen overlooks the pool with direct access to the terrace, transforming the art of cooking into an absolute pleasure. Comfortable furnishings on the lower level are tastefully arranged amidst the strategic distribution of bedrooms, to provide seclusion.

The rural location of this enchanting property is opportunely centred between the Medieval old quarters of Pollença and Alcudia, both brimming with a vibrant historical past, narrow cobbled streets meandering through a maze of local craft boutiques, mouth-watering aromas of freshly grilled tapas and small trendy cafes where locals pass the time of day, playing their part in the fascinating scene that unfolds before you.

The wide choice of nearby rocky coves, sandy calas and more extensive stretches of beach with shallow, turquoise waters, is sufficient to keep you engaged for the duration of your stay - in fact for future visits as well. A mere 10 minute drive away, Playa de Muro is a firm favourite with families, due to gently shelving slopes that lead in to the clear waters, whilst the more active make their way to Cala San Vicente where snorkelling and scuba diving are prevalent.

With its far reaching views across natural countryside to the magnificent Tramuntana mountains and close proximity to amenities, Ca'n Jaume Barretes is a perfect family haven.

Old Roman town of Alcúdia

Paella on the beach

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

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. 
 

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.

 

Early morning walk to the top

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.
 

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.

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.
