This charming stone cottage is enclosed by a lovely lawned garden and located close to the sought-after area of Llenaire in Puerto Pollença.
Traditional, yet light, airy, and with heaps of character, the interiors are cosy and comfortable. However all eyes are drawn to the extensive gardens and the inviting pool. With the beach just a five-minute drive away, Els Parats is likely to be popular with young families in the busy summer months allowing youngsters the freedom to run around in safety in these wonderful gardens, whilst couples will enjoy tranquil romantic breaks during less busy months.
Els Parats is a wonderful addition to our expanding portfolio of Pollença country villas and is likely to be equally favoured by couples and families alike.

Another amazing holiday – villa is clean and perfect size for a family of four. If you’re adventurous, we recommend Mons Adventura in Pollença for kayaking, abseiling, sea caves (incredible and coasteering). Definitely recommend a stroll to the top of Puig de Maria – the views are stunning. Take plenty of water and wear decent footwear. If you hear strange bird calls in the evening they are stone curlews which live under the olive trees in front of the villa – very well camouflaged. Thank you Simpson for looking after us.
Leana, Darren, & Amber – August 2019
We went on two trips, one of them was kayaking and coastering (sic) and the other one was the sea cave, it was absolutely beautiful with crystal clear lakes and we had to do a 25m abseil to get to the cave. It had beautiful stalitmites (sic) and stalitites (sic).
Bryn Hodkinson (age 8) – August 2019
Els Parats is the perfect retreat for people with busy lives who want to escape crowds. It is quiet except for cockerels, dogs, and the faint sound of families laughing in the distance. It is in a nature reserve and is stunningly beautiful. The pace is very laid back. There are interesting locations to go to, if you feel like it, equally you could do nothing and still have a fabulous time. We had a brilliant time.
Mrs B – July 2019
Another effort-free holiday with Simpson. Thank you Angela and Graham for all your help and advice. Loved this villa – position was perfect and we loved the big plot and privacy. Boys loved the pool – as always – and we chose this villa because of the proximity to kite surfing which they loved. Formentor – worth it as always – go early! Lovely food out in the port and used the barbecue loads. Thank you again.
The Wilson family – July 2019
A sweet well-equipped villa in a smashing location. We’ve had a wonderful holiday. Thank you Angela for the toddler box and supplies.
Carne, Ash & Elouise – June 2019
Sweet villa in a smashing location.
Simpson Traveller – June 2019
We’ve had a great holiday and enjoyed lovely sunshine. The villa is in a very peaceful location. We’ve explored quite a bit of the north of the island particularly enjoyed the scenic drive to Cap Formentor. The advice was first class – get there early as it’s popular and there is limited car parking at the lighthouse. Many thanks to Angela and all the Simpson team. The welcome pack was a nice touch and much appreciated. We’ll certainly be booking with Simpson Travel in the future.
Jan & Roger – May 2019
The friendly travel consultants gave me confidence that we had booked the right villa for our holiday and we realised as soon as we got there that it was indeed ideal for my daughter and me. The welcome at the airport was appreciated and the Welcome Pack in the villa when we arrived was a godsend. In my opinion, the attention to these kinds of details makes Simpson Travel stand apart.
Catherine – April 2019
A wonderful location on this beautiful island and although the weather was mixed there was still plenty for us to do – from the Aquarium and the trampolining centre in Palma to long, scenic drives to Sóller and Deià. The Sineu and Pollença markets on Wednesday and Sunday are fantastic. Also there are lots of great walking and running trails and even the pool is now getting warm enough to have a swim. We’ve had a great time.
The Fuller family – April 2019
Great location – quiet yet easily accessible to all areas of the island. Relaxing and well equipped for our needs. The weather has been better than we expected for this time of year but not warm enough for the pool. Visited Pollença and Sineu markets and Cuevas Drach (magical). Eaten out at lunchtime and most evenings eaten in taking advantage of the local food. Nice rental car – helped us discover this most beautiful island as we’ve always ‘hotel-ed’ before. Been on holiday with Simpson a few times and can thoroughly recommend them.
The Wan-Lawrence family – April 2019
We have returned a number of times to Mallorca with Simpson Travel choosing a different villa each time to make the most of exploring the island. Picking up the car from the airport is so simple and we begin to relax en route to our villa straight away. The welcome pack is very thoughtful and always useful too. We chose a smaller villa this year as it was just the two of us and we enjoyed the cosy space and ease of access to the garden. We enjoyed watching the birdlife with stone curlews snoozing in the garden under the olive trees and lots of goldfinches eating seeds, a hoopoe even landed by the pool while we ate breakfast. We were lucky to see an osprey at Albufera, enjoyed some lovely meals at local restaurants and wandered happily around the abundant markets. I am sure we will be back and look forward to another adventure next year.
Val Hurley – October 2018
What an amazing holiday I had at Els Parats in Mallorca! If you go to Pollença and see a shop called Mon Aventura, they have the best sea kayak trip ever. Pollença market is amazing and has lots of things – kitchen stalls, toys and lots of other stuff. Port de Pollença square has the best shops and a café called ‘Cappuccino’ that sells a good hot chocolate. And when you to the Pollença square for a stroll in the evening, it’s a great place for children to play. In Sóller there is a cool tram ride that you might find ideal – you get to see orange, lemon and lime groves too. Finally, for a treat, you can invite Lucy, the cook, to cook paella for you.
Amber (aged 9) – August 2018
Els Parats, and especially its outdoor living space, is wonderful and we really enjoyed the relaxation and privacy it provided. Graham, the Simpson Travel representative, was incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He absolutely exceeded our expectations. This was our second experience of Simpson Travel, and yet again your service has provided our family with a holiday to remember. Thank you.
L Lynch – August 2018
Wonderful first villa holiday with Simpson Travel in Pollença, Mallorca. Beautiful location with excellent facilities. Everything provided in the villa with a great pool and private safe gardens. Welcome pack was a blessing on arrival – even cold beer and wine in the fridge! Amazing. Local rep with lots of useful knowledge and tips which was great. Would definitely use Simpson Travel again.
Ms Kenward – September 2017
We have had a fantastic fortnight in this perfectly positioned villa! Wonderful weather with a welcomed breeze! For a young family, we actually found Puerto Pollença beach and the beaches south of Alcúdia to be the best (given how busy it has been!). We have really enjoyed pottering around Pollença, Arta and the market at Sineu where there is live music. Would recommend getting to Formentor beach at 9am as you have the beach to yourself and a perfect location for stunning photos. The drive there is beautiful and not as treacherous as the road to Cala Tuent beach – the drive there is stunning however and again a lovely sheltered cove. Lots to do but chilling at the villa and enjoying the pool was also a highlight. Two weeks was the perfect time frame here. Thank you, Graham, for your knowledge, sorting things out as required! Emily is your number one fan!
The Busbys – August 2017
This was our third time in Mallorca with Simpson Travel and our first time in this villa which is the perfect size for our family of four. The pool area is lovely and we made good use of the barbecue. Graham was always on hand for tips and advice – a brilliant Simpson rep. All in all a great holiday – a week just isn't long enough!
The Parker Family - July 2017
Excellent location for Puerto Pollença and Pollença and Alcúdia. Great car to potter about in. Pool lovely. Cool inside villa.
Mrs Mitchell – June 2017
The whole holiday was great and the organisation by Simpson Travel was excellent. The welcome pack we found in the villa was brilliant, my wife was impressed by its range and variety – it was very well thought out. The villa itself was ideal, from its secluded but close location between Pollença and Alcúdia to the facilities found inside the villa. Graham, the Simpson rep, was brilliant – very helpful and informative – and I think, a valuable asset to Simpson Travel.
Mr Smith – September 2016
A week here has not been long enough! It’s been a great place to relax and unwind and we have enjoyed pottering around in the car discovering new places. Enjoy this great villa!
The Vizor Family – September 2016
A lovely relaxing week in a very comfortable villa, mixed weather but lovely and warm. Pool is great – good place to chill and read. The cockerels make a lot of noise before it gets light – but got used to that by the end of the week.
Helen & John – September 2016
Had a very relaxing two weeks in Els Parats – weather glorious – in fact too hot some days. Really felt at home in the villa – the gardens and the pool area were particularly ideal for relaxing and reading.
The Meddings Family – June 2016
Pretty villa and gardens (could be a contest for Chelsea!). Took some mountain roads to Cap Formentor (watch out for cyclists!). Magnificent. Lovely to be so near to the sea, lovely views, bars, restaurants.
The Keenen Family – May 2016
Mallorca was our first holiday using Simpson Travel. Very impressed with their choices, helpfulness and knowledgeable staff. We will certainly use Simpson Travel again.
Mrs Foxley – September 2015
Our choice of Mallorquín properties is as diverse as the island itself, ranging from simple seaside charm to comfortable and stylish. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal.
To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
For centuries an inspiration for writers and painters, Pollença continues to capture the imagination and makes the perfect Mallorca holiday destination. The town square, with its array of bars and restaurants, is at the heart of town, while the Chapel El Calvari’s hilltop location offers stunning panoramic views and beautiful 13th- century artefacts. Just 7km from the town is Puerto Pollença whose sandy beach boasts crystal clear waters, watersports and the relaxing Pine Walk along the seafront.
To complete the picture of your luxury holiday in Pollença and Puerto Pollença, we offer a selection of handpicked villas and a delightful agroturisme hotel, an inspiring blend of old and new for families and couples alike.
