Conveniently located within easy distance of several recommended restaurants and family-friendly sandy beaches, lovely Marinara epitomises everything we look for in selecting a property to appear in our rental portfolio; a lovingly maintained interior with well-appointed accommodation and a surfeit of homely Mallorcan charm, plus an equally immaculate exterior where an enticingly secluded private pool, soaring palms, an olive grove, mature Mediterranean shrubs and extensive shaded barbecue terrace compete to be centre of attention. Exuding calm and a sense of serenity, we can confidently say that everything about Marinara encourages relaxed summer living.

Both inside and out the local owners’ keen eye for detail is much in evidence. Sitting harmoniously alongside contemporary fixtures, fittings and equipment, the house décor is a sympathetic fusion of colourful local artefacts, pottery, pictures and fabrics which, together, create a most welcoming atmosphere. Rooms are all well- proportioned, bright and comfortable with beamed ceilings and solid wooden furnishings sitting atop polished ceramic floor tiles.

Equally delightful are the gorgeous landscaped grounds where horticulturalists will certainly enjoy the remarkable variety of indigenous plant life. Clipped lawn and hedging, bushy mature shrubbery, perennially pretty foliage, cactii, cypress trees and several subtle design touches in our opinion make the garden photogenic enough to grace any reputable gardening magazine.

Centrepiece of the grounds, the sparkling private swimming pool, is simply the most restful spot in which to unwind and soak up the sun before heading to the inviting shaded dining terrace and in built barbecue just a few steps away.

Scenic Pollença golf club (9 holes,par 35) is just 3km away and is also home to a popular restaurant while the old Roman town itself, where all amenities and many wonderful eateries can be found, is just 1.3 km further.

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

Great Things to Do Near Marinara

Play a round of golf!

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.

Go to the market!

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.

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.

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.

Go out in a boat

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 round the headlands.

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.

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.

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.

Visit Palma – 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.

The famous caves of Drach

The most spectacular caves on the island are the Caves of Drach in Portocristo, where one of the largest underground lakes is to be found. Visits are on the hour. Further north, at Canyamel, are the Caves of Artà which are not quite so commercial.

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.

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.

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.

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 & Fridays during the summer months.

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.
