Situated on the south coast of the idyllic Balearic island of Majorca, the historic city of Palma has long been one of Spain's most desirable holiday destinations. Palma's eclectic past is apparent in its diversity of architectural styles, with rustic houses, sprawling Spanish villas and recently renovated apartments all available to rent for a two week holiday in the sun or for extended durations of three months or more. Whereas couples may wish to browse holiday lets located down a charming cobbled street in Palma's Old Town, families or large groups might prefer to check out the luxurious beachfront villas which line El Arenal. HomeAway offers an exclusive range of short term rental properties across Palma and its surrounding area available to rent for holidays, business trips or as temporary living accommodation all year round.
Owing to its white sandy beaches and year-round sunshine, the Majorcan capital is a popular destination for families on their summer holidays. Short term rental accommodation often works out more affordable than booking a hotel stay and with a selection of luxury villas, modern apartments and quaint cottages, there is a holiday home to suit every need and taste. Holiday lets are also ideal for families looking to bring their pets with them, prefer the privacy of private accommodation or enjoy self-catering and entertaining guests. Families after a relaxing summer escape are sure to enjoy the coastal resorts of C'an Pastilla and Cala Mayor which are located just beyond the city limits, whilst expat families or families in between permanent accommodation will enjoy HomeAway's selection of exclusive properties in the suburbs of Santa Catalina.
On a budget
Despite its exclusive reputation, there are plenty of self catering accommodation options for those holidaying in Palma on a budget. Comfortable studio apartments and villas can be found in the more reasonably priced suburban neighbourhoods of Son Dureta and Bons Aires. Although further from the beach, these areas enjoy excellent transport links and amenities so that those hoping to save on their accommodation needn't miss out on all Palma has to offer.
Holidaymakers on a budget must also be mindful that time of year greatly affects rental rates so by avoiding peak seasons such as school summer breaks, Easter, Christmas and New Year, savvy tourists can make huge savings on their trip to Majorca.
Palma's glittering marina, exclusive beach resorts and elite golf clubs ensure that the Balearic city is a popular haunt for the rich and famous and features a host of luxurious rental properties to match. Couples celebrating a special anniversary can opt for elegant penthouse apartments boasting stunning harbour views and romantic rooftop terraces whilst large groups of friends can rent out spacious Spanish villas which sleep up to 16 guests and come complete with infinity pools and hot tubs.
High-end holiday accommodation can usually be found dotted around Palma's marina and close to the iconic Bellver Castle. HomeAway's exclusive luxury properties are available to rent during both peak and off-peak seasons.
Although primarily known as a popular holiday destination, as Majorca's capital city, the majority of the island's businesses are located in Palma. Those staying in the city temporarily for work purposes are free to browse HomeAway's selection of sleek executive apartments and condos which are located in popular commercial areas. Many of these properties offer high speed Wi-Fi and onsite parking, in addition to modern cooking and laundry facilities so that those on business can find the perfect home away from home for the duration of their work trip.
