We are absolutely delighted to have discovered this pretty stone finca nestled in the lush terrain of the Pollenca countryside. This charming traditional Mallorquin, stone clad abode sits at the end of a sweeping, gated driveway and despite its very convenient location of 5 minutes into the vibrant old town of Pollensa, the surroundings are appealingly rural with palm and olive trees creating that classic holiday feeling that’s irresistibly relaxing.

The honey-stone exterior of Villa Alzines with sun-wash pantile roof is attractively swathed in climbing vines, an ample wrap-around dining terrace with in-built barbeque offering a perfect spot for alfresco dining under the stars during warm summer evenings. Ideal for one/two couples or a smaller family, Villa Alzines will prove to be a welcoming, congenial and convenient holiday base from which to explore the diversity of this stunning island and shift the pace of day to day living down a notch, enveloped with enchanting views creating a glorious green backdrop of hills and rolling Mallorquin countryside.

The interior décor is modern, bright and pleasing to the eye whilst capturing the traditional feel of a country home. A well equipped kitchen overlooking the grounds leads to an open plan dining area with two steps down to a comfortable sitting area complete with ornate fireplace. Two spacious bedrooms with air conditioning offer a cool haven for restful nights in the form of a twin bedroom with separate shower and a double bedroom with an appealing en suite bathroom, complete with matching double basins and spa bath for two!

Extensive grounds embrace a refreshing pool encompassed by a combination of towering palms, neatly clipped box and olive trees. A variety of flowering shrubs, hedging and a section of grass providing great running around space to keep little feet with excess energy entertained - all in all a thoroughly pleasant retreat in which to totally unwind.

Should you be seeking something a little more vigorous than lazing around your pool sipping a cooling drink there are a string of natural beaches within easy distance offering an excellent selection of water-based activities, sandy seashores, casual beach shacks for tasty tapas and pop-up, artisan craft stalls to fully complete the island life experience.

Location of Villa Alzines

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Villa Alzines

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.

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.

Museum Alcudia

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
