Pollenca is a quiet village in the north east corner of the island of Mallorca
. The stunning landscape here is rugged and diverse with steep mountains ending sharply at the shoreline. The deep blue sea stands in sharp contrast to the green pine trees and the grey limestone. Although it is only 5 short km from the very popular tourist destination of Port de Pollenca,
its medieval charm makes it feel like its light years away.
Many visitors to Pollenca choose to rent accommodations direct from owners of private vacation rentals, condo rentals, apartment rentals and villa rentals. Independent travellers will thrive in the simple freedom of a home away from home. As casual or as sophisticated as you'd like, these villas and vacation rental properties can truly be anything you want them to be.
Pollenca is a typical Mallorcan town with a maze of winding streets dating back to the 18th century. Each has a character of its own and all are worth exploring. Within minutes of your accommodation, you will find a wealth of historical buildings.
The Town Hall is a restored Jesuit convent and an old Dominican convent now serves as a museum with a large display of local area paintings.

Noteworthy sights within walking distance of your lodging include the Roman bridge as well as the Puig de Pollenca,
a medieval chapel and watchtower overlooking the city below.
