Autumn in Mallorca is the best time of year on the island and our holiday villas in Pollensa are the best way to enjoy it.
By the end of August most family holidaymakers have packed their bags and headed home, leaving the retirees and families with small pre-schoolers. Then the couples and the cyclists begin to arrive for the late summer sun and the atmosphere shifts and relaxes.
Autumn begins in earnest in September. Locals visibly relax and the temperatures drop a notch or two. For those of us who live here, this is the best time of the year to enjoy the island.
Besides the obvious advantages of lower prices and higher availability and choice, autumn holiday villas in Pollensa offer superior holiday breaks on the island simply because the island is at its best.
The beaches are empty and yet the weather is still hot and sunny and sea temperatures remain warm after a long scorching summer. The roads are less clogged with rental cars and restaurants are still open for business but you can get a table without booking 3 weeks in advance. Autumn still carries the happy buzz of summer but without the stress of too much heat and too many people and your villa in Pollensa will be cool inside and hot in the sunshine on the terrace and by the pool.
With Pollensa Golf on the edge of town and the fabulous Alcanada Golf Club in Alcudia a mere 20 minutes' drive down the coast, you are well set up for golfing holidays in Pollensa. These are not the uber luxury golf resorts of the south of the island, but better suited to a more genteel and laid back pace of life and a great way of combining your autumn holidays in Pollensa with a golfing escapade.
We have autumn holiday villas in Pollensa near the golf courses, in the countryside near Pollensa Golf and Alcanada Golf and in Pollensa and Alcudia Old Towns.
