Thinking of holidays in Pollensa? Then you've chosen well if you don't do neon and non-stop partying. Instead, this arty medieval town rocks in the sightseeing and olde-worlde department. Beneath the Tramontana mountains in Majorca's north-eastern corner, it's pretty as a picture with its traditional stone and whitewashed houses, Gothic churches and sun-baked old monuments.
The epicentre of Pollensa holidays is the café-lined plaza, the perfect venue for morning coffee. From there, stick a pin in your guidebook: there's lots to see. Perhaps scratch the surface of Pollensa's chic atmosphere by touring its smart galleries – they're a clue to its roots as an artists' hangout. Climb the 300-plus steps to the chapel. Or wander the knotted streets, ducking into inviting restaurants and admiring the town's Roman bridge.
To make the most of holidays in Pollensa, make a date with the local countryside. Hike in the mountains to unearth a secret Majorca. Laze on the sheltered sands of charming Puerto de Pollensa. And walk to the local monastery for more head-spinning views.
Even more enticingly, Thomson have some superb country properties for self-catering holidays in the Pollensa area. Fabulous for couples especially, they include the quaint Ca'n Durai, cosy Villa Juana and larger Ca Na Francisca. And why not time holidays in Pollensa with the town's many summer festivals? It'll add an extra special frisson to this already extra special place.
