A huge fully equipped , brand new kitchen plus grand living room with separate dining area make this house a perfect retreat from which you can look down over the Bay of Pollenca. Leading down from the huge terrace is a luxurious private pool surrounded by numerous areas on which to laze around and soak up the hot sun.The gardens are fully stocked with pretty colourful flowers and an "English Lawn" ( Very rare in Spain as nearly all of the grass is called Gramma which is spongy , horrible to walk on and impossible to relax on ) , perfect for picnics , ball games or just sunbathing on.

Full (All channels including Sports and Movies) Sky Digital TV with a 50 inch Plasma in the living room with home cinema system linked throughout the villa to large plasmas in each room including every bedroom and even the kitchen . While a separate T.V. room , with it's own independent full Sky system , ensures that the children are fully amused whilst giving the adults plenty of peace and quiet. Outdoor speaker system on terrace so that you can listen to your ipod whilst chilling either in the sun or during those warm , tranquil evenings..There is also completely reliable, secure high speed WiFi THROUGHOUT. If it is sheer luxury and tranquility that you are looking for whilst being only 4 minutes by car away from the Port with it's 3 mile long spectacular beech , 10 minutes to Alcudia (5 mile white sandy beech) , 6 mins to Cala St. Vincente ( 2 pristine sandy coves ) and 5 mins to the historic old town of Pollenca this is the only place to stay.

All of this makes Saltamontes SIMPLY THE BEST equipped oversized Villa available to rent in the Pollenca/Port de Pollenca area !!!! Don't be stuck down in the valley this Summer on flat land with no breeze and no privacy. Because of it's position Saltamontes enjoys cooling Ocean breezes directly from the bay of Pollensa which makes sunbathing on any of it's many terraces all the more enjoyable. In the Summer months you cannot buy these breezes for any amount of money. Saltamontes has it all !!

The housekeeper and gardener/pool man are an English couple so communication with them is easy , just in case you have any special little needs or any problems arise during your stay.

At time of booking you will receive their contact details so that your arrival is smooth , and also so that should any small problems arise during your stay, ie a fuse blows in the house or something isn't working as it should then this can be taken care of immediately with no fuss, bother or communication problems.

Saltamontes is a non-smoking property inside , although there are plenty of outside terraces on which to enjoy both a cigarette or cigar.

About this location

The Balearic Islands region

Mallorca's north east coast is home to the popular resort of Puerto Pollensa. This area is very popular with cyclists, walkers and watersports enthusiasts.

The Serra de Tramuntana is the mountain range running parallel with Mallorca's north west coast. The terrain and mountain peaks are in stark contrast with the gentle east coast.

The Bay of Pollensa is renowned as the premier spot to own real estate on the Island and because of this the houses are generally in the most expensive bracket.

Puerto Pollensa

Mallorca prides itself on the fact that it boasts over 300 days of sunshine each year with wonderful scenery, beautiful sandy beaches and a laid-back friendly atmosphere. The sheltered horseshoe shaped bay is set against the stunning backdrop of the Tramuntana mountain range.

Very popular for walking, cycling, sailing, golf and water sports.Both Pollensa Old Town and the Port have wonderful Markets every Sunday & Wednesday and also many fantastic festivals throughout the year

"This is a great house with good facilities and perfect for relaxing."

We were travelling with our teenage sons (and friends) and when we arrived at Saltamontes we were delighted as the house is exactly as it looked in the photographs.
The house was well positioned between Pollenca and Puerto Pollenca and easily accessible to beautiful Formentor. There was a good taxi service to/from the villa.
The house was well equipped and the air conditioning in the bedrooms, a delight. The pool (unheated) was actually perfect as it was in a suntrap on the terrace and so was very warm.
The furnishings and bedrooms were very good, with TVs in most bedrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped.
The owner kept in contact regularly before our holidays answering queries and providing information and the housekeeping couple were friendly, helpful and discrete.
A lovely holiday home - highly recommended.

"Amazing views and beautiful house were we celebrated our wedding"

We had a wonderful stay in May in Saltamontes. We travelled as an extended family and the house is big and spacious enough to give privacy to everyone. We loved the house, outside areas and gardens, especially all the details we discovered during the week. The views are simply amazing.... The owners kindly allowed us to celebrate our wedding in the garden/terrace - and of all the weddings taking place in Pollenca - this must be one of the most beautiful spot for a ceremony of that kind....! Hopefully we return one year, if not we will always have our nice photos and memories....

"Luxury Spannish escape"

This villa is exactly as described in the brochure and some.
The views are breathtaking and not made enough of in the description.
The villa is well equipped and you do feel that you are living in a villa which the family has vacated just for you so you can enjoy your holiday.It has that personal touch not the normal sterile holiday let (specific cutlery, a few pots and pans and a kitchen stripped by the maids of anything left by previous tenants).
Security of the villa is excellent and being at the end of a track with three lockable doors/gate to gain access to the inside of the villa and a monitored alarm system felt really relaxed.
All of the rooms are generous in size and the beds are really comfortable.
You do need a car to visit the town but it is only 45 minutes from the airport.
Our dealings with the owners during the booking was painless and it was obvious from emails that they were going all out to please and accommodate our requirements.When we met them they were a lovely English couple who are evidently very proud of their property and went to considerable lengths to ensure that we were comfortably settled in .
Although the property might at first appear expensive the cost per person is not and I could not find an equivalent hotel of similar standard for the same price

"The best house we have stayed at in Pollenca"

In the recent past I have spent several weeks during summer in Pollenca with my extended family. Without any doubt, Saltamontes is the best large house we have stayed in. The elevated position means you always have a breeze which is welcome on the hottest days in August. It is a very short drive to both Pollenca old town and the beaches at Porto Pollenca. The house itself is immaculate, Sky TV was a big plus for the kids and the cleaners/gardeners were very discrete but helpful when they attended the property. A wonderfull house for a holiday with family.

"A very special villa in a fantastic location"

Saltamontes wowed us! The location of the villa is very private and as soon as we walked in we knew we'd picked somewhere special. The villa is traditional but with all the mod cons and very comfortable, the old and new features complement each other beautifully. We liked all the little touches around the villa making it more homely, with children's artwork in the snug/TV room through to lots of candles/lamps/cushions to create a cosy atmosphere. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, all the beds were comfy and most of the bedrooms have terraces alongside them, with tables and chairs, so you could have some privacy if you needed to. One of the best features of the house is the main terrace which has spectacular views across the countryside and over to Puerto Pollensa. We were lucky enough to see the moon rise over the mountain as we sat having after dinner drinks, it was an amazing experience and it's a great place to do some stargazing.
We used the terrace every night for drinks and dinner; it's a very sociable space, which works well. We all loved splashing in the pool to cool off and lazing on the sun loungers. All in all the villa is very well equipped and the owners are very helpful and easy to contact, responding quickly to any enquiry we had. We loved our week there - perfectly located to visit the Port and the Old Town, I'm looking forward to returning again!

"Fantastic villa - you get what you pay for!"

Saltamontes is a luxurious villa set on the hillside above Puerto Pollensa. The accommodation and gardens are excellent and well represented on the photography on the holiday lettings website. All bedrooms very well air conditioned and lots of indoor space (great kitchen, dining room , lounge and tv/snug room). Internet and sky television (two sky boxes so children could separate to watch the cricket or golf!). Maid service during the week very friendly and quick. Pool cleaned twice in the week. Car or taxis are essential or you will get very fit walking into Puerto Pollensa. Local area is beautiful with Pollensa and Cala San Vicente being two of the highlights.
