Occupying a unique, commanding position surrounded by a local vineyard and stunning rolling countryside as far as the eye can see, the location of L’Olivar Canaves is nothing short of breathtaking.

Ideally situated within a short drive of both Pollenca old town and the white sandy beaches and turquoise sea of pretty Puerto Pollenca, you'll find an array of amenities, shops, supermarkets, highly rated restaurants, tempting tapas bars and the local Sunday market beckoning to be explored.

Surrounded by expansive Mediterranean grounds this magnificent stone clad country home is filled with natural light, the interiors lovingly furnished with comfort and style in the traditional design of a Mallorcan farmhouse. Warm hues of burnished wood, terracotta tiled floors and natural honey toned stone are just some of the features.

The spacious open plan living dining room takes full advantage of the glorious views through patio doors that open out to the generous covered dining terrace complete with chunky wooden beams adorned with rustic lanterns and an impressive summer kitchen for long evenings spent al fresco dining beneath the stars in this idyllic setting. Next to the living area, the fully equipped farmhouse kitchen provides all that is needed for easy holiday catering with separate utility room, also on the ground floor is a spacious twin bedroom with doors to the garden, a separate shower room and a cloakroom.

From the entrance hall, an elegant tiled staircase with a beautifully crafted wrought iron banister and stone arches, leads up to the first floor where three further bedrooms and a bathroom are situated. The principal bedroom with king size bed and en suite bathroom and second double bedroom share a large balcony with wooden shutters and seating area overlooking the pool and stunning mountain views beyond. A further twin room with Juliette balcony has equally stunning views orientated towards the Puig Maria mountain.

The alluring pool, bordered by sun terrace, lawns and attractive shrub hedging with a shaded pergola, is the perfect spot to relax in peace and soak up the sun, enjoying views of the sheep gently grazing under the olive trees in the nearby fields.

Location of L’Olivar Cánaves


Great Things to Do Near L'Olivar Cánaves

Lluc is not just a monastery

Discover the marine world’s best kept secrets by embarking on a wonderful adventure through this marine park featuring more than 8000 animals of 700 different species and more than 5 million litres of salt water. You will also be able to enjoy a wide variety of activities which combine education and fun, suitable for all ages.Open daily. Check website for actual opening hours: Palmaaquarium.com


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 in advance.

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 and Fridays during the summer months.

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.

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.

Tramuntana mountain road to Deià

Drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads via Inca, Lluc and Sóller, taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including the two lakes/reservoirs, and passing through several world-renowned towns of Fornalutx, Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous writers, painters and musicians.

Pollença market on Sunday morning is a colourful bustling event

where you can buy your locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as a few souvenirs and presents. Have a look inside the church which is very impressive.

Beach at Port de Pollença

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.

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.

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.


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 in advance.

Glassworks and Museum

There are 3 glassworks in Mallorca open to the public: Menestralia at Exit 35 on the Ma-13 near Campanet; Gordiola, established in 1719, is near Algaida on the Ma-15 near Exit 20 on the Manacor-Palma road; Lafiore is on the Palma-Valldemossa road. You can watch craftsmen working, see the kilns, museum and shop.

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.

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.

The old ruined castle at Alaró

Make your way to the top of Castell d'Alaró - take water to drink as the last part of the journey has to be done on foot. The views from the top are breathtakingly beautiful! On the way down enjoy a meal at the Restaurant Es Verger where they serve tasty roast lamb done in a traditional Mallorcan oven.

Play a round of golf!

Mallorca has a great variety of golf courses and the closest to Puerto Pollença is the 9-hole course at Pollença. Aucanada has an 18-hole course with beautiful views overlooking the Bay of Alcúdia.
