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.

It is exactly as you see in the photographs on the website. The balcony is huge and you can see all round the bay from it. As you are on the fourth floor you are well away from the hustle and bustle below yet right in the middle of everything. The apartment is extremely well designed and has everything you could want. It is beautiful and full of light. The bathroom is very spacious and the bedroom has fantastic wardrobe space. The kitchen is very well equipped and we appreciated Maria's welcome pack. If you have mobility issues this apartment may not be for you as there are four flights of stairs to climb and no lift but then you wouldn't have the fantastic view and the privacy without being so high up! Highly recommend. Thank you Maria.

We had plenty of "space" we weren`t on top of each other, a great family villa. Excellent location, near Cap de Mar beach. Exquisite views, just lovely sitting on the balcony watching the boats having breakfast with stunning sunsets too. We had a few minor hiccups but the management company sorted them out in less than 24 hours. Excellent service. Would have been nice to have had basics supplied ie: loo rolls, ice, washing up liquid etc. The only negative would be that the entrance to the driveway is VERY TIGHT, our boys got used to it but it was a struggle. Can`t wait to go back :)
