Can Collet is a private and well appointed Villa, built in traditional Mallorcan style with a lovely spacious garden complete with fig and lemon trees, private swimming pool and a large shady terrace ideal for alfresco dining. The Villa is situated 10 minutes drive from sandy beaches, and from Pollenca town, close enough to the amenities but in a peaceful and private setting with views over the mountains, spectacular as the sun sets. As the Villa is all on one level and the garden fully enclosed it is perfect for children or those with limited mobility.

About Sue Garfitt
I live in Warwickshire with my husband and we had always been interested in buying a home in the Spanish sunshine. After some deliberating and a number of visits to the island over the past 15 months , we bought Finca Can Collet in May 2013 from a Mallorcan family who used the finca as a place to entertain friends and family for BBQ's during the summer.
Sue Garfitt purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Sue Garfitt chose Pollença District
We bought a property in Mallorca because there were fond memories of the island as a child when I used to holiday here with my parents. We love the north of the island for the combination of sandy beaches and marinas, rugged coastline and the historic old towns of Pollenca and Alcudia. Being by the sea, and because the island is so compact you are never far away from a beautiful coastline or beach. The island is easily accessible from all European destinations, with a very efficient airport. The Mallorcan people are very friendly and welcoming especially to tourists which makes you feel more at home. English is widely spoken on the island so you can always make yourself understood, and there are many nationalities here which gives it a cosmopolitan and relaxed ambience.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is very convenient for the town and local shops as well as a choice of beaches within a few miles. The pool, garden and outside terrace are the best features of the property - there is enough space for all the family to relax and chill out. It is in a peaceful location with great views over the mountains. As you sit in the garden and the light changes so does the colour of the mountains - you can see Puig Santa Maria from the finca which is one of the peaks used by the British Olympic cycling team who train in the Tramantura mountains. Watching the sun set over the Puig is a special moment worth savouring with a glass of wine!

Lovely home from home
Our second stay here. A lovely house in a great location. Had a wonderful sunny and warm week with plenty of swimming in the sea and pool. My son and I hired road bikes and managed to fit in both Sa Calobra and Formentor. 2 of the best days we’ve ever had on a bike!
Highly recommended, Sue the owner has created a real home from home.
Thanks Jonathan for your review. Delighted you had a great week with the family and the villa lived up to expectations second time around. I look forward to seeing you again.
Kind regards. Sue
Wonderful Family Holiday Villa
We’ve just returned from another wonderfully relaxing stay at Finca Can Collet and enjoyed it just as much as our first trip…this place is a real find!
The villa really is fabulous and continues to be presented to a very high standard. It’s in a great location offering easy access to the old town of Pollença and its Port as well as the many wonderful beaches the northern side of the island has to offer. It also isn’t too far from the attractive Port de Sóller which has a fascinating old-style tram that runs to/from the main town in the mountains behind. Well worth a day trip to explore if you can drag yourself away from the pool.
The villa is very spacious throughout and the well-maintained garden and pool areas are superb for kids to play in and/or for adults to relax in. Everything was again spotlessly clean upon our arrival and both the inside and outside of the property continues to be very well maintained...The addition of some attractive new steps into the pool since we last visited are a great improvement, as is the brand new terrace floor with its luxurious new stone tiles and the re-decoration of one of the twin bedrooms.
Thank you again, Sue for sharing your sunshine retreat with others…The extra effort you go to is really appreciated, as is abundantly clear by all of the excellent 5 star reviews you’ve collected over the years.
Andy and Clare, I’m delighted that the villa continues to live up to expectations. Pleased the new additions are well received. It’s always a pleasure to welcome you and the family, and I hope you will continue to enjoy the villa for many years to come . Thanks . Sue 😇��.
Great villa, lovely location
This is a great property in a lovely quiet location but near to all amenities. We had a lovely two week holiday here , the villa is very well equipped and comfortable but the main draw for us was the outside space . The large garden and pool meant that as well as going to the beach we were able to just simply relax and spend the day at the villa where there was plenty to entertain both a teenager and a toddler! We enjoyed lots of bbqs and had one but not very successful attempt with the pizza oven. (lots of fun anyway ) Our favourite beach by far was Formentor, the market in Pollensa on Sunday was a great way to spend the morning as was the wine tasting at the nearby vineyard. We hired a 7 seater car and it was a tight squeeze along the track to to the property but we managed and after a few days negotiating this it became easier. Overall a great stay , would love to return .
Hi Lucy, pleased you had a great time and enjoyed the spacious garden and pool with the children. Would love to welcome you back. Sue
A gem in the Pollensa district
We have just returned from yet another visit (our third !) to this lovely Villa. We cannot speak too highly about Can Collet, it’s a home from home in a really tranquil and peaceful setting, yet only a five minute drive from Pollensa village. The Villa itself is beautiful, finished off to a very high spec. As for the large garden and pool, such a lovely setting, it has everything you could possibly want to make a holiday to remember. We will definitely return again !
Roger and Maureen, you are such lovely guests. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay again this year. So please do return next year.... Sue
Lovely cosy house with a huge, interesting garden and well kept pool
There were 4 generations in our family visiting Finca Can Collet and it was perfect for everyone. From the lovely garden and pool to the well stocked kitchen and spacious bedrooms, plus the lovely new bathrooms. We enjoyed the patio and also the huge bbq. The villa was so peaceful and the only noises heard were sheep, goats and a cockerel. We were very impressed with Pollenca which was a few minutes drive away and was such a beautiful old town.
Thanks Angela. Really pleased you all enjoyed yourselves at Finca Can Collet and the Villa was able to accommodate both young and old. Would love to have you back. Kind regards. Sue
Amazing villa with many added touches that really makes a difference
The finishing touches make all the difference including; beach towels, candles, books, dvds, open fire for cold nights, we went 8th May and it was needed a couple of nights, although there is also heating in the villa but we didn't need that. There are flood lights, well kept grounds with lemon, fig and banana trees, wicker and wood outdoor furniture, lanterns, reasonably good Wi-Fi, a very well stocked kitchen, bean to cup coffee machine, fluffy towels, window screens to keep out bugs and last but not least posh hand cream and soap!
The villa is immaculately clean, and the host Sue's communication is professional, immediate, friendly and caring.
Worth knowing is while it is a short drive to the town and nearest shop, it is a bit too far to take a stroll down, probably a couple of miles maybe more. Access is also down a little lane which was just about wide enough for our people carrier but we didn't want to tackle that and the dark country lanes at night. Saying that cabs are cheap €9 into Pollenca and €12-14 to Port Pollenca.
If you are looking for a 'home feel' villa, a 'get away from it all' location then this is the place for you.
Nicola thanks for your comments. It’s always great to get feedback, and I’m delighted you liked the finishing touches in the villa. I have tried to make it feel homely.
You are right it’s not really walkable into the town...a car is needed. The upside is that the villa is very private and tranquil. The little lane to the villa is quite narrow but a transit van gets down with no problems so cars fit fine...albeit not at speed! Sue.
The Villa is a 10 minute drive from 2 bays - Port Pollenca and Alcudia, both with sandy beaches and good amenities and eating/drinking places across the road from the beach. Free parking is available on the promenade right next to the beach.
The Villa is a 5 minute drive from Pollensa town. The old walled town of Pollensa is famous for its Sunday market and has a beautiful square with open air restaurants and cafes.
Nearest airport is Palma, 35 - 40 minutes drive.
Car hire is recommended.
Distance to Pollenca town is 1.8 miles (3km). Approximately 5 minutes by car.
Distance to Port Pollenca or Alcudia beach is 3.6 miles (6km). Approximately 10 minutes by car or a 25 minute walk.
You can also cycle to the town or beach on the bicycles provided. 10 minutes to Pollensa and 20 minutes to the beach.
There is a choice of supermarkets - in the Port or just outside Pollenca town. Both are only 10 minutes drive. There are 4 bakery shops in Pollenca which are open daily except Sunday. There is a wide choice of banks, local shops and restaurants in the locality, all of which are easily accessible. The property has a full Information Folder listing the popular restaurants and attractions on the island.
I also provide a welcome basket at the house for each booking , with hot beverages and biscuits, water and a bottle of wine or cava.
