From the fertile Vall d’en Marc valley, in the stunningly picturesque foothills of the Sierra Tramuntana, a rural track gently winds its way upwards through the rich foliage and abuts at a clearing in the woods. Before you stands Rafalet d’Alt, perfectly secluded amongst the lush greenery with gorgeous sweeping views across a swathe of verdant Mallorcan countryside.

In keeping with its farmhouse origins this desirable country cottage has been sympathetically and thoughtfully refurbished along traditional lines. Sturdy wooden beams and exposed stonework abound, the kitchen is modern and well fitted whilst retaining a rustic style and the unique, ‘open plan’ design of the tastefully appointed bathrooms virtually redefines the term ‘en suite’!

Externally you will find that summer living could not be more appealing. Enticing sun terrace surrounds the private pool, an in built barbecue and long covered dining area sit just alongside and yet further shade seating/eating space is provided by the front entrance terrace.

Should you be able to resist the temptation to stay sequestered in this enviable and undoubtedly relaxing setting, the excellent restaurants and comprehensive amenities of Roman Pollença are only 4km away while the sandy cove beaches of Cala Sant Vicenç (9km) and the long sweeping bay of Port de Pollença (11km) are also very easily accessed.

The start of the walk uphill to Puig de Maria (puig=hillock) is just before the rooster roundabout on the right of the main road towards Port de Pollença.

Take a bottle of water with you although there is a bar at the top.The views over the north coast are outstanding.
 

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.
