Set in the wild-herb scented plains between the characteristic towns of Pollenca and Alcúdia, this spacious five-bedroom stone villa is a seamless blend of traditional and contemporary with the added advantage of adaptable accommodation to cater for multigenerational groups.

Sitting covertly in its own flourishing grounds of mature palms, cacti, bulrushes and attractive green shrubs, this homely villa takes the stress out of staying away from home for parents with children of all ages, with real run-around room for younger guests and plenty of space for breakfast in the sunshine or a snooze in the shade and putting your feet up or letting your hair down as the mood dictates. A grass border encompassing an alluring pool with sun terraces provides plenty of options to relax and indulge in the far-reaching views across the meadows to the craggy mountain peaks beyond.

The unpretentious interior is decorated in true country finca style, in keeping with the location and origins of the villa. Exposed stonework, chunky wooden beams, hand painted local tiles and whitewashed walls create a convivial atmosphere of traditional Mallorca.  On the upper level, living space adjoins the open plan kitchen and dining area with stone arches, cool tile flooring and lofty beamed ceilings with ornate stone fireplace to complete the cosy milieu. Three bedrooms branch out from this area consisting of a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, two twin rooms and a separate bathroom. An open tread staircase leads down to the lower level where both twin and double bedrooms have their own en suite bathrooms - for those with walking difficulties direct access to the lower level is available to avoid using the stairs.

An ornate covered terrace shades the front facade of the house and with in-built barbecue and exterior dining furniture overlooking the pool, becomes a popular spot to congregate and savour the rural surrounds whilst rustling up a tasty lunch. 

A short drive (5 minutes) changes the panorama completely, where one can soak up the vibrant atmosphere within the ramparts of Medieval Alcúdia or in the heart of old town Pollenca with its surprisingly sophisticated bar and restaurant scene. Bustling local markets set up shop in shady plazas whilst narrow streets lend their cobbled nooks and niches to sidewalk cafes which subtly fill the air with heady aromas of espresso coffee and freshly baked bread. Artisan craft stalls laden with colourful textiles, straw baskets and ceramics all blend together to render an addictive holiday aura, that will certainly linger long after you return home

Location of Tanquetes de Can Xanet


Great Things to Do Near Tanquetes de Can Xanet

Museum Alcudia

Visit the Sa Bassa Blanca museum of modern and contemporary art of which the Hollywood actor Michael Douglas is a patron

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.

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.

Puig de Maria

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. It's best to go first thing in the morning, wearing sensible shoes and don't forget your camera. Take a bottle of water with you although there is a bar at the top.

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

If you would like to do some snorkelling in clear, deep water, go towards Alcúdia, turn off towards the La Victoria headland until you reach Mal Pas. Beside a fish restaurant serving lobster (choose your own), there is an excellent area off the rocks for snorkelling.

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.

Palma de Mallorca, an interesting capital city

There are many interesting historical buildings to visit in Palma, including the Cathedral, Almudaina Palace and Bellver Castle, as well as museums and art galleries. Palma is also an excellent shopping centre.

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.

Visit another island - Menorca!

Menorca is just 25 miles away, it is a great island to explore with lots of undeveloped coves. Mahón, the capital, and Cuitadella have beautiful architecture and excellent waterfront restaurants. Daily ferry from Cala Ratjada to Cuitadella.

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.

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. Alcanada has an 18-hole course with beautiful views overlooking the Bay of Alcúdia.

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.
