A unique house in a unique location, Casa Chacon is quite simply a delight. Discretely tucked away behind a classic stone façade in a sedate residential side street this comfortable, well-appointed town house sits in the very heart of the vibrant and iconic Roman town of Pollença. This is an enviable, ultra-desirable location and, with a range of excellent amenities all within close walking distance, the epitome of convenience.

Both respectful to, and evocative of bygone days, the characterful interior harmoniously blends wooden beams, exposed stonework, traditional artefacts and floors of polished tile with contemporary features including a distressed metal staircase, modern fitted kitchen, air conditioning and WiFi.

Three bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms make a particularly appealing balance for sharing families or groups of friends and a lovely relaxed, welcoming atmosphere pervades the whole of the property.

Focal point of the tiered garden is the good size private pool (whose gated access offers parents additional peace of mind) and there is an impressive view from the upper dining and sun terraces back across the town rooftops to the Puig de Maria.

Look out for some eye-catching ironwork in and around the grounds where the pool gate, stair rail, wall decoration and upper terrace fence have each been fashioned from a whimsical combination of everyday implements welded together into an imaginative collage.

All the town attractions which include many excellent restaurants, summer music recitals at the old cloisters, 365 steps of ‘calvario’, and the atmospheric ‘Plaza Major’ central square are within a few hundred metres of Casa Chacon.

You are also in the heart of the action during the annual ‘Moors and Christians’ cultural festival held in early August; a lively few days (and at least one very boisterous night!) of elaborately costumed activity that includes much singing, marching, flag-waving, displays of horsemanship and general 'shield-beating' revelry culminating in a grand mock battle and live music concert in the square!

Gorgeous sandy beaches, various walking and cycling trails, two golf courses, tennis, horse riding and watersports are all appealing, easily accessible options in what is a wonderfully scenic corner of this beautiful island.

Air conditioning usage is on a timer.
Tiered grounds mean that very young children may need supervision.

Great Things to Do Near Casa Chacon

Take a leisurely stroll from the house

and explore 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. And it's all on your doorstep!

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.

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

Fornalutx, Deià and Valldemossa
