Pollensa : Holiday Accommodation
Pollensa is like a pocket of old-time Majorca, just a few kilometres from the shoreline. Framed by dramatic mountains and lovely foothills, this enchanting town offers the tranquillity and charm that makes it fabulous for couples and families wanting to savour peaceful, authentic Majorca. Made up of tangled streets, stone buildings and pastel-washed houses, which occasionally make way for ornate chapels, the town's focal point is a picturesque central square. Here, you will discover a cluster of al-fresco restaurants and bars which are perfect for whiling away your time in between shopping for Majorca's traditional woodcarvings, leather goods and handicrafts. It's worth coming to the centre on Sundays, when a colourful country market takes over the square. And during your stay, make sure you climb Pollensa's 365 Calvari steps, the famous stone stairway to a quaint chapel. Towards the coast lies the restful area of La Font, where whitewashed villas pepper the meadows, and Puerto Pollensa, the village's original harbour now grown into a thriving resort complete with a beautiful sandy beach. Alternatively, visit Alcudia's Roman archeological sites or head into the countryside to enjoy the many walking trails and hidden villages tucked into the hills.
