About Calvià

Calvià’s population can be traced back to 2000 BCE and has a long history of farming and agriculture, thanks to the town’s surrounding countryside. It wasn’t developed as a tourist destination on the island until the last century or so, and still retains an old fashioned charm and several well-preserved examples of historic architecture.

Best Time to Visit

Calvià is found in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains, which means that the climate is slightly cooler than the coast of other inland areas of the island. If you want to visit Mallorca when the weather is hot, June to August is the best period of time to visit Calvià, whilst those seeking slightly lower temperatures should plan their trip in either late spring or early autumn to avoid too much rain but enjoy a cooler climate.

Best Things To Do In

The proximity of Calvià to the Tramuntana Mountains means that one of the best things to do during your stay is go hiking. The scenery in the hills is outstanding, and there is a range of mountain biking tracks as well for those looking for something slightly more adrenaline-filled.

Historic sightseeing is another great way to spend your time in the town, with a great selection of different buildings and monuments in the area that share stories about the history of the island and its inhabitants of the area. There’s a large market held in the town on Monday that is a great way to interact with the locals and buy yourself some unique souvenirs to take home.

Best Places To Go In

When it comes to places to visit around Calvià, there are lots of sites that history and architecture fans will enjoy. The remains of a Roman villa are a highlight, along with the church of Sant Joan Baptista which is in a beautiful hillside location.

If you fancy hitting the beach then you will have to travel quite a way, but places like Magaluf, Santa Ponsa and Palma Nova are worth the trip if you’re looking for some excitement along the coast.

What our guests say

Fantastic home for a fantastic stay. We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. Top tips from us - don’t stress about parking, the roads are very narrow and parking isn’t easy so use the car park on the way in to Pollensa. It’s only a 5 minute walk and is very safe. There is a lovely bakery just 2 minute walk away on the main road in and not far from the chemist. Enjoy!

Great villa, comfortable beds, clean and the welcome pack was really appreciated. Good location and the pool and table tennis went down very well with everyone.

Charming and lovely townhouse in the old part of Pollenca. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. House is really well equipped. ACs in all the rooms meant it was never too hot even in the August. High walls give a lot of privacy and also make the sun more bearable. Pool was lovely. We quickly got used to parking in the side streets around the house, but it is also possible to park slightly outside the town. We used a car to go Puerto Pollenca to get to the fantastic beaches. Their Internet was good enough for video calls for work Communication with the manager was easy and quick. Would clearly recommend and also go back.

"The villa was very well presented, spotlessly clean, and surprisingly well equipped – it even had a tea-pot! The welcome pack was probably the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen!.. Pollenca is a good base if you want to have good access to the coast without being in a coastal resort."

We had a great stay and the communication with Colin was brilliant. The villa is very clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the steps in are great for children. The pool was also really warm considering it’s not heated and the view of the mountains is fantastic. Lovely quiet area but a 25 min walk into the square in Pollenca and 5 min drive to the Port. Lovely area and lots of great restaurants and beaches nearby. We were a family of 8 (7 adults and one child) and would definitely like to return :)
