Make a holiday rental, home, or villa on Balearic Islands your home away from home

Accommodations on Balearic Islands

The Balearic Islands are a province of islands about 100km off the east coast of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea. The area has become a favourite destination for visitors seeking holiday homes alongside beautiful beaches, good food, and an exciting nightlife. There are various islands to choose from, each with their own feel thanks to the area’s history of many occupying forces including the Greeks, Romans, and Moors. With such eclectic influences as well as different landscapes, holiday homes on the Balearic Islands offer something for everyone. The most coveted spots for a holiday rental, home, or villa on Balearic Islands include Mallorca (Majorca), Menorca (Menorca), Ibiza, and Formentera.

Places to holiday on Balearic Islands

Mallorca - As the largest island of the Balearics, Mallorca is one of Europe's top holiday destinations. Because of its size, holiday homes on the Balearics have so much to offer from gorgeous beaches and exciting nightlife in the busy city centres of the south like Cala Pi and Sa Rapita to beautiful views of mountainous regions in the north like Santa Ponsa, Soller area, and Andratx. Holiday villas in the capital city ofPalma de Mallorca are known for being some of the Mediterranean's most beautiful and luxurious. And while you’re holiday home may be heavenly, be sure to take a boat trip from the south east to the beautiful untouched region of Cabrera. The clear waters are a dream come true for SCUBA divers and snorkellers.

Menorca - In the far east of the Balearic Islands, holiday home seekers will find Menorca to be the most tranquil and unspoilt region of the three main islands. Holiday rentals in South and East Menorca are ideal for families looking to escape the wild nightlife that makes the other islands notorious. Instead holiday homes in Menorca offer uncrowded beaches and traditional fishing towns. Visitors travel far and wide to indulge in Menorca’s fresh seafood.

Ibiza - the Island closest to the mainland, Ibiza is known as the party capital of Europe. It has some of the biggest and best nightclubs in the world, attracting A-list celebrities and some of Europe’s poshest partygoers. However don’t be fooled into believing that’s all the island has to offer. Visitors staying at holiday homes and villas, a short distance away from the two main club areas of Ibiza town and San Antonio, will easily discover a lesser-known Ibiza with traditional Spanish villages alongside orange and lemon groves and beautiful cliffs and mountains like Sant Agustin and Santa Eulalia. There are also colourful street markets and local fiestas where the locals gather but.

Fromentera - An hour ferry ride from Ibiza town, Fromentera is rumoured to be the Mediterranean’s best kept secret. Holiday homes in the area are ideal for nature lovers. Homes are amid a paradise of gorgeous, clean beaches, clear waters, and hidden coves.

Things to do on Balearic Islands

Because of the range of things to do in the Balearic Islands, visitors staying at holiday homes will find it difficult to be bored. Depending on which island or islands you choose to explore, there is something for everyone. Most activities focus around the various bays, beaches, and rugged landscapes and cliffs. Majorca has the largest mountains of the islands, with some reaching 1,445 metres (Puig Major) and 1,340 metres (Puig de Massanella). The region is also famous for caves of extraordinary beauty, that include the Drach and the Arta caves in Majorca, and Xoroi cave in Minorca. All of the beaches in the area are well known for their exquisite beauty. But be sure to not get stuck lounging around the whole time. Take advantage of the facilities and services on the major islands, including jet skis and parasailing. For golf lovers, the best location is Mallorca, especially in the area of Capdepera. Art historians should check out the Mallorca Museum. It contains important archaeological remains. There are also paintings, Renaissance and Baroque ceramics, and a section with modern furniture.

Nightlife on the Balearic Islands cannot go unspoken for. The islands are home to some of the best nightclubs in the world and while some may be difficult to get into, there are numerous places letting in partygoers with open arms. Most of these places stay open late, so think of your night ending at noon not midnight.

Weather on Balearic Islands

Like the rest of the Mediterranean, the Balearic Islands can get a little more rain than the mainland, as well as hotter temperatures in the summer. Therefore when planning to stay at a holiday home, people generally prefer to go during the pleasant or hot temperatures from April to early November.

Travel to Balearic Islands

If you plan on traveling solely to the Balearic Islands, it is best to fly directly to the islands and avoid the mainland. Cheap flights are readily available through Ryanair and easyJet. However if you're already in Spain, the cheapest flights are usually out of Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia or Malaga. Also you can often arrange a cheap flight back to the mainland.

Another option in making the trip to Balearic Islands is by boat. The Buque rapido is operated by Trasmediterranea. There's only one a day in the mid-and high season. The same company also operates a fast ferry between Valencia and Palma that stops in Ibiza en route. The third option is the buque convencionale, a slow ferry that operates all year. These go from Barcelona every day.

The other reviews say it all; particularly the one that says it has everything you need and no more. Uncluttered but what is there is beautiful. Massive comfy bed, lovely places to sit (inside and out) as the sun moves around the house. We chose a bad time for Sóller in that very few restaurants were open (but recommend Ca'n Pintxo) but the market (fish vegetables herbs etc), Saturday outdoor market (cheese) and supermarkets, meant we could cook great food. And a perfect time of year for oranges and lemons of which the garden was full. Lovely OJ, lemonade, lemons with chicken, or indeed for G&T! The kitchen is simple but perfectly well-equipped and has what very few rental properties have - a sharp knife! Weather was like English spring-time with lots of opportunities to sit outside for coffees and lunch. Lovely walks - Biniaraix and Fornalutz and at the Port, and great walking guides and maps in the house.

November weather in Mallorca can be mixed, so the location was perfect for either a walk on the beach in Palmanova or a 20min bus ride into Palma for €2.50. The making of the apartment is the wonderful balcony where you can sit reading a book or looking out to sea watching the boats pass by. The apartment is spotlessly clean with all creature comforts. Note: For safety reasons the only concern was having to lock the gate if one of us wanted to stay in while the other went out with the keys. Already planning next year if you will have us. Again our thanks. Peter&Judy.

However, I wouldn't want to stay there with two people on the sofa bed as it is all rather open plan and just a little small for four. For two it was a perfect size. The house is quite dark and could do with a few more lights but that's about as negative as I can be. The bathrooms were both beautifully done and the kitchen contains all that's required. It was very clean and the bed comfortable. The outside space, accessed via the bedroom, was in the shade in November, but as it was warm this didn't really matter. There is a small supermarket two minutes walk away in Calle de la Luna, with a baker's shop a further two minutes along the road towards the Market Square where there are loads of restaurants and bars as well as the taxi rank, tram and train stops. For a special dining treat try the Ca'n Boqueta in Gran Via (tasting menu with matching wines) tel 971 638 398 and for tapas try Ca'n Pintxo in Calle de la Rectoria tel 971 631 643. You need to book both.
