Villa Puerto Pollenca Deluxe in Palma De Mallorca

In the golden light of morning the sweet nutty scent of pine mingles with the salt sea breeze, I slide the glass fronted doors open and step out onto a warm wooden terrace with striking views across to the jagged peaks of the Boquer Mountains. The array of white washed villas, the golden cliffs carved against a blue sky and the sound of the Mediterranean, these are the hallmarks of an early autumnal morning in beautiful Palma de Mallorca.

The Villa Puerto Pollenca Deluxe which has become home, appears to be wedged into the granite grey and flushed greens of the mountains, the sparkling blue pool a reflection of the sky. It’s hard to believe that only a ten minute stroll the colorful waterfront center of Puerto Pollenca sits in wait, the waterfront restaurants already stirring and the sidewalk cafes spilling over with early morning caffeine seekers lingering over newspapers. To the other side of the villa the famous pine walk winds to the gentle curve of the bay, a place where pale sands and evanescent waters merge together in peaceful solitude.

The solitude travels all the way up across the trail and seeps onto the manicured tiered lawns of the elevated Villa Puerto Pollenca, cypress trees veil us from the outside world and the arresting sight of the bay, the fortress and the mountains bloom like a watercolor painting. For those who dream of the perfect Mediterranean Sea escape without tearing yourself away completely from civilization, Puerto Pollenca seems to deliver the ideal solution.
Stepping inside the bespoke villa booked through Travelopo a huge palm tree greets us, rising from one floor to the next, splaying its emerald fingers and adding a touch of the exotic mingling with the earthy organic tones seamlessly woven through the rest of the space.

This is a place flooded with natural sunlight thanks to the glass panels on the roof, a place where the dining table and chairs take on the appearance of driftwood, where fat sofas sit scattered with cream cushions and where everywhere you turn something tasteful catches your eye beneath the spotlights, drawing you in and filling you with a sense of wonder and calm.

Glass makes her transparent appearance known throughout the villa, from the second you catch glimpse of the impressive architectural design with its mountain slate grey tones, its open drawer like design, and its façade brimming with glass allowing light to stream in and your eye to gaze out. Even from the bedrooms you can rouse yourself from the rich cotton pillows, turn your head slightly and be greeted with the view of the sunrise sending her shades of red and gold across the sea as she ascends.

At the other end of the spectrum, flaming sunsets are best enjoyed al fresco style, with a glug of apricot colored wine, a fresh piece of fish and the temperate evening stirred only by the stars.

Villa Puerto Pollenca Deluxe captures the very essence of modern luxury, everything is soft, supple and understated in a way that lends a quiet mise en scene to the perfect stay; one where days are spent watching migratory birds flutter past, drifting into the blue haze of the sea, wandering the charming harbor and sipping the finest wines.
