Puerto Pollensa housing market

Housing market in Puerto Pollensa - Mallorca's prime location.


Why is Puerto Pollensa housing in such a great location?

Puerto Pollensa, in the north of Mallorca, is a prime house buying location for a number of reasons.

First of all there is the CLIMATE. It boasts 300 days of sunshine a year, long hot summers and short mild winters, and is best of all in spring and autumn when least busy and yet still delightfully warm.

Secondly is Puerto Pollensa's prime LOCATION. The town is tucked into the bay of Pollensa on the northeastern coast of Mallorca, between mountains and sea, with 2 golf courses in the vicinity, the Royal Yacht Club and marina in the bay and under an hour's drive from Palma de Mallorca and the airport.

Thirdly, due to increased restrictions, European standards have been implemented in building and the QUALITY and craftmanship of housing in Puerto Pollensa is far superior to what it was. The Puerto Pollensa housing market is seeing more and more excellent builds for sale in the area.

Partly geographical, and thanks to a large extent to the strong presence of foreign residents, property in Puerto Pollensa has continued to change hands throughout the crisis.
