This beautiful traditional Mallorcan stone Finca, located within a few minutes from the historic Old Town of Pollenca, provides an ideal holiday home for those wanting to relax and unwind but also remain close to the Old Town and everything it has to offer. In this way you can experience the joys of a semi-rural property without feeling too isolated from the town and local amenities.
The Mallorcan countryside surrounding the ancient town of Pollenca is stunningly beautiful and the town is a delight of intertwining cobbled streets to explore with quirky shops, cafes and restaurants and don't forget the bustling market on a Sunday. Also, climb the famous 365 Calvari steps from the square (Plaza Major) to the Chapel and behold the views from the very top!
The Finca was originally built over 150 years ago and is a typical traditional stone built house you see in this part of the island.
Historically the Finca was home to the Carob tree, which is typical of the dry regions of Mallorca, and the carob was used as feed for draught animals. The spelling of the name "Xocolater" comes from Catalan.
The garden has a range of trees which include orange, olive, fig, carob and grape vines. You enter the property through a gated entrance only 2 minutes drive from the Rotonda del Gallo.
The garden is green and lush with lots of colour from the different flowers that bloom during the spring and summer months. The water is supplied from the Fincas very own Well.
This picturesque Finca set in 3500m2 of countryside is surrounded by spectacular mountain views particularly the breathtaking Puig de Maria and the spacious lawned garden opens up to a wonderful 10m x 5m pool with sun loungers, poolside covered BBQ area and shower room/WC which is very convenient when around the pool. There is also a poolside outdoor shower to freshen up before your swim and a Ping Pong table for fun and games.
Fancy a game of badminton over a net between the fig trees? That's available too!
The pool lights up at night for those who fancy a midnight swim! The lawned areas at the side of the pool provide somewhere for the children to play surrounded by lush vegetation, mature trees, traditional stone walls and of course those stunning mountains. Explore the grounds of the Finca and you will find a 10ft cactus dominating the front garden with grape vines intertwining along the old goat pen walls.
The building itself is constructed from ancient local stone and really does have a rural feel to it. The area outside the front is terraced leading up to the sturdy, solid wood front door. There is plenty of parking space too. Shuttered Spanish-style windows and terracotta roof tiles add to the overall ambiance.
