Overview

About the property

Villa in Siller, Puerto Pollensa, Mallorca - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes Easy Walking To The Marina, Beaches And Pinewalk Of Puerto Pollensa

Finca La Higuera is a beautiful rustic villa in Siller, Puerto Pollensa. It is situated on a quiet private road and set in a wonderfully mature large garden. Although in a rural area, it is only 10 minutes walk to Puerto Pollensa, 15 minutes walk to the famous Puerto Pollensa Beach and Pinewalk. This walk takes you past the big supermarket - ideal for picking up groceries after a day on the beach! The Finca is only 2 minutes walk to the local supermarket, bars and restaurants. Here you can catch the bus to the very beautiful old town of Pollensa, a must to visit whilst you are there. Due to its fabulous location it is the ideal villa for the perfect family holiday. A car is not essential but recommended if you have small children. The Finca also benefits from central heating and a wonderful wood burning stove, making it an ideal out of season retreat or base for cyclists and walkers. For those with babies and small children there is a highchair, cot and a pushchair available for use.

About Helen Downend

Hello, our names are Robin and Helen and we have been holidaying in Puerto Pollensa for the last 20 years.

We have two children aged 10 and 8 and find it is the perfect resort for us. The beach is clean, they can play in the shallow sea, the restaurants are child friendly and best of all we only have to sit on a plane for 2 hours!

Five years ago we committed ourselves to the biggest thing we have ever done. We bought Finca La Higuera!

We hope that you enjoy your stay in our beautiful home and we would appreciate feedback from your stay to aid us in getting everything just right. We have tried our best so far.

Helen Downend purchased this villa in 2011

Why Helen Downend chose Pollenca

We bought La Higuera for a number of reasons. We love villa holidays - you have your own house - you are secluded - and there's nothing better than after a day of sun relaxing with a glass of wine and the blokes doing the cooking (BBQ!) and not having to get dressed up to go to for an evening meal.

The villa is in a rural area - so very quiet and peaceful but within walking distance to Puerto Pollensa and a short 5 min drive to Pollensa. So you are not too remote as some villas are.

What makes this villa unique

In summer the villa is ideally situated for walking into Puerto Pollensa, the beach and to the supermarket. 5 minutes walk from the villa is the bus stop that takes you to Old Town Pollensa and Palma - ideal for days out!

The views at the villa are amazing - perfect to look onto whilst relaxing by the pool.

Out of season the villa has central heating and a large wood burning stove for those cooler evenings. The villa is ideally situated for walkers with the Cala St Vicente walk and Boquer Walk very close by. Fabulous for cyclists. The Duva Apart Hotel around the corner from the villa has a Spa open all year round which has an indoor pool, gym, jacuzzi and beauty treatments on offer, and again within walking distance from Puerto Pollensa!

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa, fabulous location and fabulous host. Hope I haven't used the word fabulous too much!!! This is our third stay in Helen's villa which speaks for itself. It has everything we want and ticks all the boxes. Ian, (the man in resort) is really friendly and attentive so if you have any queries he is mega-quick to answer them. My only criticism would be that it is so popular it gets booked up really quickly so you need to be looking over 12 months in advance to book (not really a proper a criticism but the only one I can think of)!!!

Best regards, Paul Rogers.

Beautiful location with well kept garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

The outside area is wonderful, with birdsong and chicadis singing in the background. The pool is fab and spacious.

Cooking and eating al fresco at night perfect. We played our music and there was no one to complain - but it was Sting and Jazz! Would highly recommend this idyllic place.

Fantastic villa with a lovely pool

  • 4 of 5

The location of the villa, just on the outskirts of Puerto Pollensa meant that we could walk to the beach and to the cafes and restaurants so we didn't need a car. We spent a lovely week at the end of May at the villa. The pool is great and occupied the youngest member of our party for hours. Overall the villa is very comfortable. The well equipped kitchen made cooking and eating in easy. We hope to visit again next year!

Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

Private location made for a perfect stay in this lovely villa. Still close enough to all the amenities, bars and restaurant and only 5 mins walk to Club Duva gym and spa which had very good value weekly/fortnightly memberships. Villa was clean and very comfortable, especially the mattresses which is so important! Highly recommended and we plan to return at some point in the future.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We visited Finca la Higuera in April as a party of 5 on a cycling holiday. The villa was perfect and exceeded our expectations. Helen was extremely helpful and made the whole booking process very smooth. I hope to be able to visit again. Thank you Helen!
