Delivering knockout vistas of Pollensa Old Town from a private terrace and pool, you can see why this rustic home caught our eye. Granted, the interiors aren’t anything to write home about, and the kitchen is dated, but for a fuss-free family holiday close to all of Majorca’s best bits, this home works. You’re within walking distance of the delightful old town of Pollensa for evening meals in the square and only a ten-minute drive from the gently sloping shores of Puerto Pollensa. Now, how’s that for a location?
