Can Miguel is within 1 mile of the nearest beach (the sandy coastal strip between Port de Pollenca and Alcudia) - this can be accessed on foot along a private road that links the house directly with the beachside road. There are several other excellent beaches in Puerto de Pollensa and Puerto d'Alcudia, Playa de Muro in Alcudia bay and, a little further afield, Cala San Vicenc with two sandy bays and excellent swimming in deep water.
Car hire is essential. Can Miguel is approx 40 miles from Palma airport; this is an easy drive with 30 miles of motorway, 9 miles of A-class roads and the narrow 1 mile link from the coast road to the house.
Alcudia 3 miles. Pollenca 4 miles. Puerto de Pollenca (centre) 3 miles. The house is 1 mile from the road that runs alongside the beach between Alcudia and Puerto de Polence.

About Cati Bennasar / Inés Daum
Miguel and Ines are working people who live in Pollensa town during the summer, but we like to live at Can Miguel during the winter when we have no clients. We both have horses that live in the fields around Can Miguel. I, Miguel, am a gardener and manage the land of nearby fincas, and also help my parents with their land and animals. For some years I worked at Rancho Grande, near Can Picafort, and also in Teneriffe as a riding guide for day and night excursions. In the past I completed the famous Ruta Santiago in Spain but now my riding is local. I'm also a qualified chef. I grew up in Mallorca but Ines is from Germany and came to work in Mallorca initially as an au-pair. She now works in the local Hospital as an administrator and translator for English and German visitors to Mallorca.
Cati Bennasar / Inés Daum purchased this villa in 2005
Why Cati Bennasar / Inés Daum chose Puerto de Pollensa
I bought the land on which Can Miguel is built 18 years ago. The first thing to do was to build stables for my horses and prepare an exercise yard for them. I chose the location because it is near Pollensa, and still close to the finca where I grew up. The house is within walking, and riding, distance to the sea but far enough away from any crowds to be always peaceful. Step by step I built the house, put in a pool and began summer rentals a few years ago. This year (2011) we have added a third bedroom and second bathroom on the first floor. We now have a comfortable home, with space for the horses, a pretty garden where our chickens can run freely and which provides a simple, peaceful holiday house from May to September.
What makes this villa unique
Can Miguel is close to the lovely beaches in the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia, and the many restaurants and shops there. But its location just a little inland provides a completely peaceful environment. One special feature of a holiday in Can Miguel could be a ride in a horse driven trap, with me, and you would usually be able to see our horses in the nearby fields. The house features our life with horses, but it is not essential to be a rider or even a lover of horses to enjoy a holiday here!
