Consider Alcudia and Pollenca for Your Dream Mallorca Property

There are many popular towns and villages around the island in which to buy Mallorca property. Many of them have a very individual appeal and so finding the best area to meet your exact requirements shouldn’t be too difficult – whether you want mountains, beach front or golf clubs you will find a Mallorca property perfect for you!

Alcudia is one such town which offers a little bit of everything. Situated in the north of the island, the Old Town is surrounded by the city walls which date back to the 13th century and much of this part is pedestrianised so you can enjoy a stroll around and relax in the many café’s and restaurants. From the port you can take a boat trip around parts of the island or catch a ferry to Menorca or even Barcelona.

Outside of the city you can enjoy the S’Albufera Natural Park, an important wetland; journey up into the nearby mountains, or visit ancient Roman ruins, whilst the beach at Alcudia is an impressive 6 miles long.

Although in the north of the island, Alcudia is still very accessible. The journey time from the airport is just 35 minutes which makes this a great town to buy a Mallorca property in. Golfers who like a challenge will be in their element as the golf course at Alcudia is rated ‘difficult’ and is very beautiful.

Like much of the island, Mallorca property in Alcudia doesn’t come cheap. A large penthouse apartment in the town will set you back in the region of €400,000 whilst houses are even more. In Port de Alcudia you’ll find a larger range of properties. This is a more touristy part and hence there are many more lower-end apartments available. You could buy a studio, for example, which would be perfect for holiday getaways, for less than €100,000.

Also in the north of the island, you’ll find the pretty town of Pollenca at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain chain. This is a traditional town which has an excellent market on Saturdays. If you’re looking for a more traditional Mallorca property this is a good town to consider. Just over 3 miles away is the excellent beach of Port de Pollenca. This is quieter than many of the popular beaches on the island although there are package holidays coming here, so it’s not completely empty!

Much of the older Mallorca property for sale in Pollenca is in the style of townhouses. Depending on condition and size you can expect to pay upwards of €400,000. A more modern 3 bedroom apartment will cost in excess of €250,000.

In Port de Pollenca you can get more for your money – a 2 bedroom apartment for under €200,000 for example, plus there is generally more property on the market here. There are also some very exclusive properties here too – seafront apartments, fincas and luxury villas for those with more to spend!
