Tucked away off a quiet back lane, surrounded by spacious gardens and fields of olive trees with views of the undulating Tramuntana Mountains in the distance, this homely and appealing country house enjoys an idyllic rural setting which, at the same time, remains within easy reach of historic towns, all amenities and several wonderful white sand beaches.

Turning into the wide private driveway imposing palm trees stand sentinel over what is a classic Mallorcan hideaway. Crafted from fine local stone, the house façade is an eye-catching collage of beige, taupe, fawn and mushroom-coloured hues while, to one side, whitewashed, vine and bougainvillea-clad archways book end the charming semi-shaded courtyard, a delightful space surely destined to become the focal point for al fresco dining on the fruits of the adjacent barbecue. From here the alluring diamond shaped pool fringed by attractive lawned garden is just a few steps away.

Next to the courtyard, a small, independent fitness room houses a cross-trainer, static bicycle and multi-gym along with an ‘en suite’ shower room, hugely convenient for outdoor living and a very useful addition to the shower and bathroom facilities in the main house.

Circumscribed by verdant hedgerows, the grounds of Pep Font deserve a particular mention being home to well-tended lawns interspersed with beds of flowering plants and an interesting selection of indigenous shrubs. Judicious placement of mature palm and citrus trees by the property owner (a keen gardener, as you may have already guessed) creates an abundance of natural shade, encouraging holiday indolence as well as offering younger party members soft sheltered spots in which to play when temperatures soar.

As commodious inside as outside, the open plan kitchen/dining/living room is spacious and relaxing with French doors providing direct access to the courtyard whilst flooding the interior with light. Under vaulted beamed ceilings the understated décor harmoniously blends plump, modern sofas and colourful prints with traditional Mallorcan furnishings and fabrics. Each of the four bedrooms is air conditioned, two also have a ceiling fan plus access to the garden while the principal double benefits from an en suite shower room linked Jack n’Jill style to the inner hallway.

The lively coastal town of Port de Pollença (4km) with its gorgeous sandy beach and abundant choice of restaurants, cafes and shops is a short, 10 minute drive, whilst the historic towns of Pollença (5.5km) and Alcúdia (5km) are also easily accessible. The Northern coastline is celebrated for its multitude of pretty beaches; the family-friendly coves of Cala San Vicente (11.5km), pine tree-fringed Playa Formentor (15km) and vibrant Bahia de Alcúdia (7km) all being popular choices.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Pep Font

Sunday Market in Pollença

The market in Pollença is a colourful bustling event where you can buy locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables as well as souvenirs and presents. It's worth having a look inside the impressive church while you are there.

Local beaches and coves

The beach at Port de Pollença is spacious and has all amenities with parking along the seafront. Cala Sant Vicenç has 2 small beaches and the Formentor beach, although further away, is worth spending the day at.

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.

Take a train and a tram!

Take the old-fashioned train ride through the mountains and tunnels from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller and don't miss the tram to the Port de Sóller through the orange groves and back. Just sit in the church square in Sóller, enjoy a drink and local pastry, relax and watch the world go by.

Visit Palma

If you'd like to visit the capital city, 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 to visit - the Cathedral, Moorish Palace and impressive Bellver Castle for example.

Visit 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.

Water parks, Marineland and Aquarium

The nearest waterpark to Pollença is Hidropark at Port d'Alcúdia where there is also a mini-golf course! The others are in the south of the island at El Arenal and Magalluf. At Costa den Blanes there is Marineland which has dolphin, sea lion and parrots shows and an excellent Aquarium at Ca'n Pastilla.

Birdwatching

Ornithologists will know about the birdwatching area at the Albufera and Albufereta, where you can see several different species of wading birds, amongst others.

Visit an historic manor house

Visit one of the most representative manors of Mallorca's plains, Els Calderers de Sant Joan, where you will be able to imagine farming as it was 200 years ago and sample some home-made local products. Or, in the opposite direction at Esporles, is La Granja a large historical mansion with gardens, fountains, ancient trees and plants with wild and domestic animals. Also on view - a demonstration of ancient handicrafts, tools and machinery. Taste Mallorcan specialities such as jams, cheese, fig cake, sobrassada and moscatel.

Formentor Lighthouse and beach

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, stop at the viewpoint to see the dramatic vertical drops to the sea and El Colomer rock. The beach at Formentor is not very large but has clear shallow water ideal for children and adults alike with some good areas for snorkelling. Go early, with a picnic.

Valldemossa and Deià

Driving over the Tramuntana mountain roads taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including the two lake/reservoirs, and passing through several world renowned towns like Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous writers, painters and musicians. Look out for the wild mountain goats on the way.

Pollença Music Festival

The Pollença Classical Music Festival is held at the Cloisters in July and August, featuring various well-known bands, quartets and soloists - a great variety of programmes to choose from.

Battle of the Moors and the Christians

Pollença is famous for its simulated Battle of the Moors and the Christians which takes place on 01-02 August. The whole town takes part in the celebrations.

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

If you would like to do a bit of snorkelling in clear, deep waters, go towards Alcúdia, turn off to Mal Pas on the road towards the headland of La Victòria. Beside a fish restaurant serving lobster (choose your own), there is an excellent area off the rocks for snorkelling.

Explore the old town of Pollença

Spend time walking around the town of Pollença, browsing in the quaint little shops and making the effort to climb the 365 steps up to Calvary church before sitting down for a drink and dinner in one of the pedestrianised squares.

Puig de Maria Walk

The start for the walk to the top of Puig de Maria is on the road towards Palma, a short way from the rooster roundabout on the left - it's best to go early in the morning. Don't forget your camera, wear sensible shoes and take water to drink although there is a bar at the top. The views over the north coast are outstanding.

Caves of Campanet

The Caves of Campanet, discovered by a shepherd about 100 years ago, are not too far away and worth a visit if you like to see the fascinating stalagmite and stalactite formations. These caves are not too commercialised and visits are on the hour. For Mallorca's most impressive caves, go to Portocristo on the east coast and visit the Caves of Drach.

Lluc Monastery - not only a monastery

Follow the mountain road from Pollença to Lluc Monastery. Visit the museum and the chapel where you may be fortunate to hear the Blauets Choir sing. Don't miss the small botanic garden at the back of the monastery which takes about 15 minutes to walk round or the rock formation in the shape of a camel.

Boat Trip

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 around the headlands.

In an easterly direction

Going further afield, drive through the resorts of Port d'Alcúdia and Ca'n Picafort towards Artà where basket making is one of the local trades. Then take a country lane to the hermitage of Betlem where the views overlook Colònia de Sant Pere in the Bay of Alcúdia. Back to Artà, and if you are interested in prehistoric building, then visit the Poblat de Ses Paisses before carrying on to Capdepera to see the castle.
