Alcudia is situated on the East Coast of Mallorca next to Puerto de Pollensa, less than an hour from the airport in Palma.
Over this winter the road on which we are is being improved with wider pavements and more attractive landscaping to the beautiful canal which gives this area the feeling of the Little Venice of Mallorca.
The villa is in a residential area about a ten minute walk from both the Port of Alcudia and the 7 mile white sandy beach which makes this wonderful town one of the most sought after holiday destinations in Majorca.
The water is shallow and perfect for both children and swimming. It is within easy access to many excellent restaurants and bars. The shopping in the Port of Alcudia covers all tastes, including designer boutiques and duty free gift shops. The old town of Alcudia is also within walking distance and you can follow the locals and tourists alike to the very popular outdoor market twice a week.
This year we will be renting week to week from Tuesday to Tuesday (although other days may be possible) as this makes it easier to take advantage of the many good value flight offers to Mallorca commonly on offer.
We ask 50 pounds per person, minium of 150 per week in all months other than July and August when the minimum will be 200 pounds per week. This is deliberately low as we require you to take your own sheets and towels etc and clean through before you leave . . . but above all, this is our own home-from-home and we ask you to look after it and leave it as you would like to find it.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and availability. We also have tips on car hire and flights.

Originally a Phoenician settlement the town was built inland from its port (today Puerto Alcudia) as a defence against pirates and invaders. In the 2nd century AD it became "Pollentia" the Roman capital of Balearis Major. It was sacked by the Vandals in the 5th century, rebuilt by the Moors and with the conquest of Mallorca by Juame 1, in 1229, once again came under Christian rule. Construction of the city walls, to protect not only the village, but also the entire northern section of the island, was begun in 1298 and completed in 1362.
Today Alcudia's monuments and buildings have been carefully restored and the Old Town is a delightful mixture of old and new. Tapas bars, cafes and restaurants abound with tables spilling out onto the tiny paved streets. The pretty market place (famed throughout the island for it's Sunday & Tuesday markets) is a great point from which to explore and sample the present day (and night) delights of this lovely old town.
Puerto Alcudia lies at the northern end of the Bay of Alcudia's 11km sweep of curving white sand beach. This lovely old fishing village has restaurants, cafes, bars and shops lining the sea front and the tiny paved streets behind. "Shop till you drop" or meander around the marina, full of fishing boats and luxury yachts!
Alcudia and Pollensa have long been renowned for their popularity as family resorts - there really is something for everyone. Local activities abound - water sports, sailing, diving, golfing, horse riding, cultural sites - even sunbathing and relaxing! Nightlife centres around the local bars, cafes and restaurants in both Alcudia town and the Port area and features some fine restaurants, offering seafood, international or Mallorcan cuisine. However, if you fancy something a little livelier - look no further than the 7-mile sweeping Bay of Alcudia resort area.
For those who like history, the Roman forum of Pollentia, theatre and houses have been excavated. Sections of the medieval walls and several of the gates to the town still remain and behind them are narrow streets with some fine buildings. The nuseum is welll worth a visit.
Should you decide to wander further afield Puerto Pollensa, Pollensa Old Town, Cala San Vincente and Formentor are just a few of the places all within easy reach of the Alcudia area. About 40 minutes away by car are the famous Caves of Drax which are one of the most famous in Europe with their underground lake. Whether you want relaxation, culture or activity - you'll find it here!
