Tucked into the peaceful Pollença countryside, Ca’n Camarroja is a comfortably furnished stone-clad Mallorcan cottage with a very pretty pool and garden. Surrounded by enclosed, colourful grounds of mature shrubs, palms and cacti, this characterful, former farmhouse is also bordered on one side by a large orchard of fig, lemon, plum and olive trees, as well as several ‘nispero’ (loquat) and almond trees. Relaxing around the private pool, it is easy to believe that you are in a deeply rural location when, in reality, a range of excellent amenities together with several gorgeous sandy beaches are all just a few minutes’ drive.
For several generations, Ca’n Camorroja has been in the family of Pedro and Maria, the hospitable local owners. Maria says her main wish is that guests feel immediately welcome and at ease - something we feel is very much achieved as you enter into the open plan ground floor from the shaded front terrace where the care and pride taken in looking after the house is evident and an inviting homely ambience quickly apparent.
Décor throughout is a simply-styled combination of the traditionally Mallorcan (fabrics, dark/light wood furniture, framed antique photos) with the contemporary (modern appliances, satellite TV, air conditioning in each bedroom). Outside the well-tended grounds host a small lawn and a choice of open and shaded terraces on which to relax in the sunshine. Partially covered by a grapevine, the front terrace makes a particularly appealing spot for open air dining to the accompaniment of gentle birdsong.
Being almost equidistant between the atmospheric town of Pollença (3kms) and the spacious curving beach at Port de Pollença (4.5kms) brings all amenities including a superb choice of restaurants within easy distance. Laid-back Cala Sant Vicenç (4 kms) also boasts two striking, family-friendly cove beaches as well as a further, comprehensive choice of shops, bars and cafés.
