About Martyn Arthur

Having lived on the island for 12 years I have designed and overseen the refurbishment from the beginning of the restoration.

Martyn Arthur purchased this villa in 2004

Why Martyn Arthur chose Pollença District

Can Colom is a unique property as it offers accomodation for eight persons but the holiday group find that they have vast personal space to enjoy their time at Can Colom

What makes this villa unique

The social areas of the property are perfect for outdoor living whether it be poolside or enjoying a unique "al fesco" expericence which has been created for guests of Can Colom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely villa in a lovely area.

Debcam, Manchester.

Date of Stay: June 2008

My partner and I and his mother stayed at the villa last week. We had a fantastic time, the villa is well appointed and extremely comfortable. The pool was a huge bonus and we used it a lot - what a treat to have a swimming pool and sunbeds to ourselves! The area was really quiet but getting into Pollensa or Puerta Pollensa only took a few minutes in the car. The villa is on one floor so it is very suitable for elderly or disabled people. We have been to Mallorca over a dozen times but this was definitely our best holiday yet - the villa is so comfortable, it is tempting to stay there most of the day and evening and not venture too far! Excellent.

5/5 Can Colom - the perfect holiday villa, honest!!

Fantastic Villa, Perfect for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is exactly as advertised and more. Exceptionally clean both inside and out. It's in a great quiet location with stunning surroundings, This villa was perfect in every way. Finished to an exceptional standard and with everything you could need for a wonderful family holiday.

The pool and Jacuzzi were fantastic, The villa itself was in a great quiet location among other detached villas and a short drive to the charming historic town of Pollenca.

The villa is beautifully decorated and the amazing lighting outside creates a very chilled ambiance at night, a joy to spend lazy evenings cooking on the BBQ with the great facilities that made for many perfect evenings relaxing with the family...

Communication with Martyn the owner was a pleasure and nothing was a problem.

Would definitely stay again and recommend to others!

Great location in peaceful setting

  • 4 of 5

Perfect property for a family of 4. Near Pollenca (5 min drive) and within easy reach of 2 big supermarkets, and less than 10 minutes from the motorway. The best thing is the outside space - a real suntrap until 8.30pm with plenty of places to sit - the big daybed is perfect for relaxing with a book and a glass of Mallorcan rose!. The 2 pools are clean and safe - the children loved going in the larger pool with their pool toys and then hopping into the heated spa pool, which was ideal for a late evening dip with another glass of wine!. There is a large grassed area for children to play football and there are gates to shut for extra peace of mind if you feel the need. The owner lives next door and is helpful, with plenty of suggestions as to where to eat. The property is clean with a modern interior and full facilities including English TV. We would certainly recommend this property to others.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

The area is very popular with Cyclists, Walkers and Climbers.


Cala Saint Vicente is approx 12 minutes drive from the property. Port Pollenca is approx 15 minutes. By far the best beach in the area is at Playa de Muro. This is about 20 minutes by car but will be the best 20 minutes you will ever spend driving.

The beach is superb with a constant surf when there is a Northerly breeze sweeping into the bay.

There are several beachside eateries all of which are of the highest quality,serving freshly line caught fish on a daily basis.


Palma International Airport 50 mins

Port Alcudia 20 mins

We furnish guests with directions from Palma Airport and a detailed map of the area to locate Can Colom.


Pollenca approx 2Km

Port Pollenca approx 12Km

Palma 54Km

Further Details:

Pollenca has several banks, a quality deli, traditional fishmongers, butchers and bakeries. There are several supermarkets in Pollensa and Port de Pollensa aswell as two quality deli´s.

Pollensa has resturants to suit all budgets as does Port de Pollensa.

Pollenca town is a place of great cultural interest. There are several galleries, churches and interesting architecture. The Calvary Steps lead to a lovely church at the summit. The Cloisters Arts Centre provides chamber music and is popular with travelling music companies.
