Dear Guests

Winter months in Mallorca! – why dont you visit us?

Although our summer has been and gone, Mallorca enters into its winter months that includesChristmas festivities with spirit with enthusiasm generally.   It is  nice to enjoy the markets which although still buzzing, is much quieter to linger on browsing stalls at ones leisure rather tan being  hustled and bustled.

It is the time for some peace and quiet  in Pollensa Puerto Pollensa, after hectic summer months time to  enjoy the área and Island in a different theme!

Shopping in Palma.   Popped down to Palma for the day on Monday this week, delightful, to walk along its buzzing streets, nice to see still thriving with tourists, giving an international feel in the middle of November.  The shops all beautifully decorated with their winter wonderland” ambience, Christmas lights displayed, gave the impression, our festive period is here with gusto! as one walks along the Borne with its varied choice of wonderful shops to either window browse or buy that special present from: Tous, Lowe, Zara, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss,  Massimo Dutti, and Mont Blanc Pens, to name drop a few,  not forgetting stores such as the on line chain stores C & A and H & M, offering good choice within everyones Budget – Christmas shopping for all.


I must confess to being a surfing beach freak loving hot sunshine!  however,  residing on the Island all year allows enjoyment during winter months, which include contrast, of seeing the wonderful blizzard of almond blossom that takes place, around late January to early March covering most of the Island,  a favorite time of the year for many, so, if your staying with us in one of our lovely winter villas in our Winter collection
you may experience all in the same day –  warm winter sun to sit and take a coffee in a harbour front café,  view snow capped mountains, and almond blossom, what an experience that can be! – not many places in the world that offers such variation of landscapes all at once, you will have the pleasure of enjoying what, we locals, often – “take for granted”!

Christmas is also a super time to spend a holiday here on the Island…….

Over Christmas24th December,the midnight Mass which includes,  medieval christian song of  Sibil-la sung in the Church of Pollensa.  Many of guests attend the Midnight Mass when staying with us.

News Year Eve celebrations can be enjoyed at one of the Restaurants open for this special evening, Clivia being the most famous for its New Years Eve Meal celebrations, which many of our clients inform enjoyed  “a  wonderful evening enjoyed by all”,   after which, for those who wish to linger on into the early hours, one can stroll up  the main square in Pollensa for continued celebrations, which includes  sipping a hot chocolate in the early hours of the morning.

“The Kings” 5th and 6th January.  The night of January 5th the Three Kings arrive in both Puerto Pollensa and Pollensa and have processions through the streets, carriages full of presents and sweeties – its quite magical,  especially,  for the children, so here in Mallorca, some children are lucky they have both “Santa Clause and also Three Kings”  presents!

The day of the Pine Tree. 17th January.   The traditional cutting down of the pine, and brought to the “old Square” in Pollensa, nearby the main Church.  Its an exciting event where only the bravest of locals try to climb to the top of the pine tree to reach the top!

Exploring generally.  There are lots of local markets to visit in various areas including Puerto Pollensa, Alcudia and Pollensa, down to Palma for the day by car or train or bus, inland villages with their difference of scenery,  so,  for those of you who have reserved with us during the Christmas festivities you have some nice exploring to indulge in, and  for those of you who may be considering a Winter month villa holiday here in Pollensa, it is a worth while time to visit us between Nov 2013 to March 2014.

We hope our page of Mallorca during its winter months may have enticed you to leave the cold of UK   –  See you soon!
