The lighting around the pool in the evenings makes this villa quite magical.Kate Newman
The only villa with an outdoor kitchen - and the best part a wine fridge.Kate Newman
Great for sporty types - running, cycling, step machines and swimming in the pool, but if you venture out of the villa, it gets even better with sublime road biking, the run/hike up to Puig de Maria or swimming in the Mediterranean from one of the great local beaches.Oliver Evans
The games room and location set this villa apart. If by any chance the sun doesn't make an appearance, the pool table, table football and table tennis are great entertainment followed by a wander into town if it is all getting a bit too competitive.Oliver Evans
Life at Canacati is best spent on the terrace - there really is no better place for eating and relaxing and generally enjoy total self-indulgence. Especially at night, when it's all lit up.Scott Dunn team
Ask your chef for the best tapas recommendation in Pollenca. A good tip is to go where the locals eat.Scott Dunn team

Being situated on the edge of Pollenca town, general urban background noise can be heard from the property. This however is more than compensated by the close proximity to the main square of Pollenca.
Your heated pool will be heated during the months of May, June and September only. We will aim to get the pool heated to around 26 degrees during these months. If it is cool at night or has been raining it may mean that the pool will struggle to reach this temperature. It is usual for the pool to feel cooler in the mornings in particular as there is not a pool cover to keep the heat in.
