Nestled between two hills, each home to a sacred site, Pollença is one of the most picturesque towns on the island. Visitors are drawn here to explore the Roman legacies, but Pollença retains its local charm and character. Here, you can relax outside a café in Plaça Major, visit the popular weekly market or climb the famous 365 steps to the Calvari Church.
Son Brull ☆☆☆☆☆
The spectacular building of Son Brull stands at the foot of the Puig de Maria mountain overlooking a valley of vineyards, almond and olive trees. This former 18th century monastery is now a designer hotel where art de vivre is the keynote.
Inside, concealed behind the massive outer stone walls, a mix of softly lit architectural features; contemporary art and blond wood furniture have combined to form a temple of minimalism. Mediterranean organic cuisine is the highlight of the gourmet Restaurant 3/65 which is set in the cosy dining room with theatrical lighting or, in summer months, on the candlelit terrace overlooking the valley. Light meals and tapas can be taken in the daytime at the poolside. The restored olive press room has become the Cocktail and Tapas bar and there is live music some evenings.
There are large outdoor and indoor heated swimming pools. In addition, there is a Health Spa with four treatment and massage rooms (two outdoors), a gym, a sauna, a steam bath and a jacuzzi. There are complimentary yoga and pilates group classes. There is a tennis court and the hotel can arrange private lessons or a personal trainer. Son Brull is well located for guests who wish to walk or cycle in the surrounding area and bicycles are available for hire. Pollença and Alcanada golf courses are within an easy drive.
