Pollença is located just a short 6km inland from the beach town of Port de Pollença. Both with their own charm and highlights, visitors are always pleasantly surprised by how traditional and authentic the town of Pollença feels.

With small, narrow streets the buildings in the centre were built especially to keep them shaded from the hot summer sun. It also provides a fantastic labyrinth to get lost in, but that's all part of the fun.

If you're looking to stay in town and be right in the heart of it, below are a selection of properties that are just perfect for that.

Superb views of Pollença old town

Overlooking the traditional town of Pollença in North Mallorca, you'll be wishing this was your view every morning at breakfast. Sitting right by the Calvari steps, the five-bedroom property enjoys an elevated position above town and views that stretch out across the countryside.

Each of the five bedrooms has full-length windows to make the most of the views but also makes the property bright and airy.

The villa is situated right next to one of Mallorca's most well-known landmarks, the Calvari steps, which are 365 steps to a small chapel. These steps also host one of the most important events in the Easter calendar, the 'devallament'.

The style of the villa marries together traditional Mallorcan with contemporary.

Quaint and small townhouse in Pollença town centre

Eu Forat is located right in the centre of Pollença old town, right in the heart of all the action. This petit townhouse is perfect for a small family or group of friends wishing to explore an authentic Mallorcan town. It takes just two minutes to walk to the main square.

A word of warning, as you are centrally located, it is difficult to get a car right to the property door. If you are hiring a car, we recommend parking about a 10-minute walk away. Once you’ve settled in, it’s not necessary to rely on a car to get around.

As we said above, the villa is right in the heart of town and specifically right in the heart of where the 'moros' begin battle during La Patrona on the 2nd August. This is a very busy day outside the property with the streets lined with Pollensins dressed up as pirates.

Recently finished, the property marries traditional stone walls with more modern and contemporary finishes perfectly.

For your comfort, there is AC in the main living area and in the double bedroom. Please note the two single bedrooms do not have AC but the other machines are powerful enough to keep the place cool.
