Comfort and convenience are rarely found in such great measure. Hidden away in a typical narrow backstreet behind a classically unprepossessing Mallorcan façade, this gorgeous three storey town house enjoys a marvellous location in the heart of historic Pollença, one of the Mediterranean’s most iconic towns and a place where the charm and atmosphere of days gone by still resonates strongly throughout the buildings, squares and picturesque cobbled streets. A perfect choice for anyone seeking an authentic island experience, guests at Sant Jordi will not fail to feel part of the fabric of this vibrant and culturally rich part of Spain where the pace of life (and friendliness of the people) seems to have remained unchanged for centuries.

Having all amenities including a wonderful choice of restaurants within a few minutes’ walking distance also means car use can be kept to a minimum, or removed entirely as taxi transfers to/from the airport can be easily organised.

Inside, the accommodation flows elegantly and logically over three levels. Largely open plan, the ground floor has a living room at the front of the property merging seamlessly into the dining area and on to the contemporary kitchen cum breakfast room.

Sliding doors invite you into the compact courtyard at the rear where there is a separate barbecue house and good privacy to enjoy cooling dips in the plunge pool before relaxing on either the small sun terrace alongside or upstairs on the first floor sun terrace.

Each of the three bedrooms has its own bath or shower room and all are tastefully furnished and decorated (an impressive four poster bed taking centre stage in the principal bedroom).

Everything needed to enjoy a carefree holiday is very close at hand including a bakery (200m), chemist (200m), supermarket (300m), restaurant (300m) and bus stop (500m). Famed for their music, fireworks and general revelry lasting into the early hours, the riotous Moors and Christians celebrations in early August centre on the atmospheric main square (400m) and are a highlight of the cultural calendar. Numerous walking and cycling trails populate the surrounding landscape and wonderful sandy beaches such as the coves of Cala Sant Vicenç and sweeping bay of Pollença are easily reached within a 15 minute drive, taxi or bus ride.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Sant Jordi

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Golf and Tennis

While the 9-hole golf course at Pollença is only a short drive away, the tennis courts at the Pollença Municipal Sports ground are within walking distance of Sant Jordi.

Local beaches

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The old ruined castle at Alaró

Make your way to the top of the hill to 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.

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.

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.
