There are many great destinations nearby for our visitors to enjoy. The town of Pollensa is fifteen minutes away and the beach twenty minutes away. In the Bay of Pollensa, boats of any size can be rented for sailing. There are two golf courses nearby – a 9-hole in Pollensa and an 18- hole in Alcudia. There is a spectacular cave that is a great antidote to the hot days of summer.
Pollensa hosts many festivals. The biggest is the Patrona in August, a week of celebrating the Christian victory over invading Moorish pirates. Easter and January’s Saints holidays celebrations are also great events. Pollensa is surrounded by vineyards; you can visit Can Vidalet right outside of the town.
Pedruxella is close to Formentor, the peninsula made famous by a hotel of the same name and to the town of Alcudia with its famous Roman ruins. Just beyond Alcudia is Mal Pas, another peninsula that has nice beaches and a museum with everything from paintings of the children of royalty to post cards autographed by Yoko Ono. You can also visit the famous Monastery of Lluc and Restaurant Es Guix, overlooking its natural swimming pool.
Of course, there is plenty to do right on the estate. There is hiking, badminton, ping pong, boules and other games. And there is cooking a Mediterranean inspired lunch or dinner with fruits and vegetables from the garden, and lamb and wild goat from the surrounding land. If you are truly adventurous, farm manager Tolo can take you out goat hunting in the traditional manner (with dogs and lassoes).
There is truly something for everyone. Guests often go different ways during the day and then meet up at the end of the day for a relaxing swim and dinner.
