Pollensa is a charming place, located in the north of Majorca where with every step along its streets you breathe history, tradition and culture. It seems that time has stopped here. Neither in Pollensa nor in Port de Pollensa, you won’t find avant-garde architecture, huge hotel complexes or residential houses but you will be able to disconnect from the world: having a coffee on the terrace of a rustic villa with a picturesque landscape of the mountains of Majorca, taste a real paella in one of the local restaurants in a town square, surrounded by stone houses decorated with flowers of many colors or just sunbathe on one of the sandy beaches where the aroma of the sea and pines mixes. And palm trees..., the palm trees that make you remember that you are in a paradise.

Advantages of a holiday village
Majorcan Villas, in its original meaning finca means real estate or property. There is a very curious story related to the meaning of this word. In the past, farmers cultivated olives, oranges and lemons. These fields were mostly away from the villages. To avoid the tedious hike to the village during the harvest season, after a busy day, the Mallorcan farmers built small stone houses on their farm, to rest until the next day. That was the birth of the finca. The oldest finca in Majorca is in Manacor and is 470 years old.
Today, a farm/villa is a comfortable house with a spacious plot, which is often used as a holiday home in rural style. The equipment of a villa cannot be compared currently with the original Majorcan village of the farmers. The type of stone has been maintained and gives the Majorcan finca its unique charm, but the interior offers maximum comfort with all the technical facilities, modern interiors and a private swimming pool.
