About Sasha Hagan
Ian and I live in Glasgow's city centre with our English Bull Terrier, Rosie. Ian is originally from Wales and I am from Charlottesville, Virginia in the States. We love going to Pollensa to get our cycling fix - not to mention some vitamin D!
Sasha Hagan purchased this House in 2014
Why Sasha Hagan chose Pollença
Ian and I have had a love affair with Pollensa since we first visited in 2009. We decided to buy our first townhouse in 2010 and have enjoyed it so much (as have the folks who rent from us in the summer) that we decided to try our hand a second one - this one requiring full renovation. At last completed, the house is truly wonderful and gives us a great escape from the winter weather in Glasgow! We chose this particular house because it's full of charm, is constructed according to a traditional layout (which means it stays naturally cool in summer), and has a lot more outside space than most stone built townhouses in the old part of Pollensa. We also found the neighbourhood tranquil and it had a particularly authentic feel to it.
What makes this House unique
17 Cifre has got it all. It's peaceful, the local kids play in the street. There's tons of sun and lovely mountain views. It has a a pool, lots of plants, brand-new everything on the inside, and a clean decor - but not the kind where you worry about where to set your cup down :) It also has private parking - a rare bird indeed in the old town. Our favourite part, however, are our lovely Mallorquin neighbours who, despite our rudimentary Spanish (and no Mallorqui) have made us feel welcome.

A relaxing Honeymoon in a gorgeous place!
We’ve just returned from a wonderful week staying at 17 Calle Cifre after booking a week in Pollenca as our Honeymoon…
We love Pollenca and have been four times now; staying in a different rental property each time. So far, 17 Calle Cifre has been our absolute favourite, for many reasons. The house is well-located just a few minutes’ walk into the main town, where there are plenty of lovely shops, bars, restaurants and anything else you could possibly need (including the best market on Sundays which fills the town!). It’s such a well-proportioned house with three decent sized bedrooms, each with its own (nice) bathroom to use as well as a brilliantly large and airy kitchen (with all the pots, utensils etc you could need!) and snug little sitting area with a comfy sofa. Little touches like a bottle of wine, some water and biscuits on our arrival were much appreciated too!
We loved spending time cooling down in the bedrooms after an afternoon of mooching around town (and the bars!), using the clean and well-looked after pool (not the largest but still great and just enough for two people to happily bob around in). The downstairs and upstairs terrace were great to have and had great comfy outdoor seating which we loved. The view from the top terrace is lovely. Although you have neighbours around you at the back of the house, we never felt overlooked when sunbathing and it’s a lovely quiet street on both sides of the house.
It was the little things like the modern bathrooms, decent water pressure, the big fridge, air con in the bedrooms, plentiful towels, enough house keys, and a good supply of cleaning/laundry supplies that really made the house easy and nice to spend the week in. It’s a shame when you go to some holiday rentals to find they’re missing the little things that just make life a bit easier, but 17 Calle Cifre has it all, there wasn’t anything we needed during our stay which is a contrast to other holidays we’ve had.
Sacha and Ian were great hosts, so friendly and accommodating and on hand for any questions and to check we were happy with our stay. You can tell the house is very well looked after and it shows; it was just wonderful and the perfect base for our lazy, relaxing honeymoon!
Thanks SO much – we’ll definitely be back one day!
A taste of real Pollenca
We had a lovely stay at Sasha's home. It is in a perfect location in a quiet residential street, just walking distance into town. Air conditioned bedrooms were welcomed and the pool to dip into was great. The house is beautifully decorated and the only thing we would add is a Nespresso machine! We had some lovely meals in Pollenca - do try Clivia, but book ahead as it does get busy! Thanks Sasha, we would definately recommend your home. Sue & Dave
What a gem of a place!
We stayed for 2 weeks with our children and couldn't have wished for a better base for our trip. The house is in a fantastic location close to the centre of Pollensa, and the facilities were perfect. The kitchen was very well equipped and it was very useful to have a washing machine to use while we were away.
Looking forward to visiting again!
Wonderful home from home
After an early start and busy flight, we arrived at the house mid afternoon, hoping to find a clean, convenient house in which to spend the next two weeks. Calle Cifre was so much more than this! The house is stylish, immaculately presented and has every convenience we would need over the course of our holiday. The layout of the house is wonderful, enabling us to prepare lunch in the spacious kitchen and eat on the large terrace by the pool. The terrace benefis from sunshine all day long, making the shade canopy over the seating area very welome. The pool is large enough to accommodate two people at a time, and was wonderful in the searing heat of a Mallorcan August. Two large bedrooms are situated upstairs, with one leading to a beautiful terrace on which we enjoyed star gazing in the balmy summer evenings. Whilst there is a parking space, it does indeed fit a small sized car, and if the neighbours across the way use their parking space you may need to be inventive in your manoeuvering! Whilst we spent much of our time in the pool or enjoying the terrace, the interior of the house is equally lovely, and the air conditioning was very much appreciated. Being a 5 minute walk from the centre of Pollenca was great, but so was the peace and quiet of the area around the house, we particularly enjoyed the view of the hills from the upstairs terrace. We hope to return to Calle Cifre and would have no hesitation in recommending the house as a base from which to enjoy the beauty of Pollenca.
Fabulous holiday in Cifre!
In 2016 we were lucky enough to view the Cifre house just as it's renovations were complete. It is beautifully and attractively laid out both inside and out and we decided immediately to book it for a week in May 2017 and again for 2 weeks in July. We had a great time on both our visits - the open plan kitchen/dining room that opens out onto a shady patio was delightful, but by contrast the swimming pool was in the sun for most of the day. The upstairs verandah was another great sitting area with lovely views over the town and countryside. I can highly recommend this house - it's in easy walking distance to all the excellent bars and restaurants in Pollensa, the owners are extremely helpful - what more could you want!
a peaceful oasis of perfection
A beautifully presented town house that managed to still be homely. it was made perfect by the clean and surprisingly decent sized pool for a townhouse and the two outdoor sunbathing areas. Stayed for a week with husband and two teenagers. Perfectly located for main square yet lovely and peaceful with gorgeous views of the mountains. Sasha the owner was very helpful and prompt with her responses. Would highly recommend if looking for a bolt hole in Pollensa old town.
