About John Lilley
We are a retired professional couple who love the house,Pollensa & Mallorca. C'an Sion is a second home which we enjoy sharing with guests for a few summer weeks each year. John & Myra.
John Lilley purchased this Villa in 2011
Why John Lilley chose Pollença
We have been visiting Mallorca regularly for over 25 years & previously bought a townhouse in Pollensa in 2003. There are many wonderful places on the island but Pollensa has a special magic of it's own. We decided that we would like to have more outside space & yet have easy access to the town. Finally we found C'an Sion & here we are! It is wonderfully quiet with lovely views in all directions & in the short time since we bought the house in April 2011 we can see how lucky we are.
What makes this Villa unique
We have enjoyed landscaping the garden & preparing the fields & planting over 100 trees:the house now sits in land that complements the handsome building. The sweeping drive lined by oleander draws you in to the lovely house built in traditional honey-coloured local stone. The thick stone walls seem to keep the house cool & there are plenty of windows & doors for light & ventilation. We enjoy the peace & quiet,sitting reading or having a glass of wine on one of the terraces...eg watching the sun go down over the mountains behind Pollensa from the bedroom terrace; magical! We often stroll in to town [30mins] for a short shop & a long coffee ... There are a lot of villas for rent around the Pollensa area but I doubt that you will find many traditional farmhouses that compare to Can Sion.

We are a family who holiday in the Pollença area every year. Right from our initial contact with the owners of Ca’n Sion through to our departure from the villa this holiday has been an great experience. Ca’n Sion is a beautiful holiday home with the nicest views you could imagine. I especially liked the terrace upstairs with the amazing views of Pollença and the mountains, where we drank our coffee in the morning and our wine as the sun went down! The home is beautifully and comfortably furnished with plenty of space both indoors and out. Our family hope very much to return next year.
Location is close enough to Pollença but not too close.
Beautiful building that the owners have obviously invested a lot of time and money.
Large well maintained grounds.
The owners leave enough of everything to make it homely but not so as you feel they are about to walk back in!
Good quality furnishings.
Very clean with nice quality bed linen (this is very important to me!).
There is so much more to this villa than you can see online!
Thanks Hazel....you have kindly reviewed even before we requested one! Thank you for your comments which will be so helpful for future clients. We would love to welcome you back to Ca'n Sion ...& thanks again for staying . John & Myra
A wonderful farmhouse in an idyllic location
We stayed at Ca'n Sion last summer for 1 week with our 4 and 7 year old children and we had a wonderful holiday which exceeded our expectations. We have had time to reflect on our holiday before writing this review and our memories of this holiday remain as positive as they were when we left the farmhouse to fly home! The farmhouse is situated in large peaceful fenced gardens with a private driveway so the area was very safe for the children and there were lots of areas to explore! The swimming pool was a good size, very clean and well maintained with comfortable sun beds dotted around for some relaxation and sun bathing.
The farmhouse itself had everything that we needed for our stay (and more!) - it was clean, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable for a family. There was a lovely covered seating area at the side of the property where we could sit during the heat of the day and appreciate the stunning mountain views while keeping an eye on the children in the garden or the pool. We used the BBQ on several occasions which also has a separate eating area that made it so convenient for outside eating.
Ca'n Sion is well placed for Pollensa town and for visits to the local beaches. We hired a car for the duration of the holiday as it would be difficult to walk into Pollensa along the narrow roads without suitable transport. There are two well equipped supermarkets nearby and the market in Pollensa is well worth a visit.
On a separate note, the owners (John and Myra) were absolutely marvellous and made us feel very welcome during our stay. Prior to the holiday John kept in close contact with useful information and we also found that he responded very quickly to a minor maintenance issue during our stay. We had the pleasure of meeting Agustin (who oversees the maintenance of the farmhouse and pool) when he came to fix the problem in a very prompt manner. He was absolutely charming and really could not do enough to help. The added extra of friendly and caring hosts made the holiday perfect for us in every way.
Overall, we had a fantastic holiday and are keen to come back and visit Ca'n Sion again.
Hi Abby & thanks a lot for your kind review of Ca'n Sion and of course we will be very happy to welcome you back.

Had a fantastic week long stay at Ca'n Sion. The photos genuinely do not do it justice ! Positioned close to the old town It's a perfectly located to visit the great restaurants and bars. You will still need a car that said It's only a short taxi ride into town. Before and on arrival instructions and information from the owner were clear and easy to follow. The property itself was spotless and is clearly maintained to a high standard. Had everything we needed for our stay. I would have no hesitation in going back again, especially with that view from the bedroom terrace !
Thank you Alex.
Really pleased that you had a good time at Ca'n Sion and of course you are welcome to return!
Maybe we'll get a professional photographer in .......

Comfortable and well appointed villa in a pleasant location.
We stayed for a week at the beginning of July with our two adult sons and their partners. We found the local supermarkets en route without any problems and were able to stock up with bbq essentials and arrive at the villa in time to catch the England quarter final. The villa was perfectly prepared and we quickly moved in and made ourselves comfortable.
The villa had everything we needed for a relaxed and relaxing week with plenty of time round the pool and leisurely bbqs featuring the excellent local produce. We took a couple of days out to explore the local area and sample some of the recommended restaurants which for the most part were excellent. All in all we were very happy with both the villa and our stay in Majorca.
A fantastic property that has stunning views and a superbly relaxing ambience
We had a really great 3 weeks and enjoyed using all the facilities and amenities provided at this superb villa. The pool was a real star of the holiday being used every day to cool off and get some exercise. The owner's team were very friendly and helpful and took great care of the villa and grounds.
Pollenca is close by but the coast is also a short drive way. I would recommend having access to a car as the road from the villa to Pollenca is not good to walk along.
Thanks again for a lovely holiday.
