The NeighborhoodThe tranquility of our house in all seasons, even in the summer, combined with the convenience of being able to walk into town for shopping, restaurants or simply enjoying a stroll in the beautiful town of Pollenca.
We are within a 10 minutes drive to the beaches of Puerto Pollenca or Cala San Vincente. We particularly love the variety of landscapes and activities suitable for every seasons. We have the choice of walking/hiking/biking in the Tramuntana mountains, swimming in wonderful calas, and discovering the many cultural sites of the island.
To be more precise:
For hikers: We are within 5 minutes walk to the GR221 trailhead: gateway to incredible hiking in the the Tramuntana mountains. There are trails for all abilities and ages: from short hikes down to secluded coves with turquoise blue water, to challenging multi-day treks on stone-paved paths through the high mountains.
For road cyclists, this is a world reknowned location (many international teams train here), with amazing mountain biking trails as well. There are several high quality bike rental places in town.
For lovers of culture, you may discover the cathedral and the museums in Palma or the beautiful monastery of Valldemossa where Chopin and Georges Sand spent some time. There a lot to discover in the whole island.
For lovers of beaches, you have a lot of choices between Formentor, Puerto Pollensa, Cala San Vicente or Muro.
