Make a holiday villa in Consell your home away from home

Consell is a small town located approximately 25 kilometres from Palma, on the beautiful Spanish holiday island of Majorca. Although the settlement’s proximity to larger tourist hubs has made it quite popular with international travellers, Consell has somehow managed to maintain its traditional charm and laidback lifestyle, making it perfect for a relaxed family getaway. If you can picture yourself lazing by the pool of a Consell holiday villa after a fantastic day of sightseeing, than Consell is definitely the place for you. Holiday homes in Consell boast a wide range of accommodations, plenty of features and lovely rural settings and views.

Things to do in Consell

Although Consell is quite small in size; this has done nothing to diminish the number of great attractions that the area has to offer. The towns’s semi central location also makes a holiday villa in Consell the perfect base if you’re interested in exploring all of the great Majorcan sights and attractions.

- Going to the beach is a definite must on Majorca, as the pristine white sand and crystal clear turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea are like something straight from a postcard. Although your Consell holiday cottage is not located directly on the coast, the town is positioned no more than 35 kilometres from the north, west and south coasts of the island, providing you with unrivalled access to some of the island’s best beaches, including: Cala Deiá beach, Alcudia beach, Es Traves and Cala Mayor.

-Wine tasting is something that you should certainly indulge in whilst staying in Consell, as the town itself is known Majorca’s wine production hub. The must see winery in the area however, is Ribas Bodega, which claims to be the third oldest winery in Spain, and produces some extremely flavoursome wines. The alcohol content of several of the vintages is a little on the strong side however, so be sure to organise transportation back to your Consell holiday villa in advance!

-The Consell Flea Market currently held every Sunday morning, was founded a few years ago by an Australian expatriate. The markets have grown substantially since then and now incorporate over 300 stalls, which offer an amazing variety of art, antiques, food, knick-knacks and much more.

-Hiking has become increasingly popular in Majorca in recent years, and the area around Consell is no exception. You may choose to explore the landscape around your Consell holiday villa at your own volition; however, it is recommended that you choose one of the marked hiking trails, or employ a hiking company to take care of everything for you, as private land owners generally don’t take too kindly to trespassers.

-The Traditional Fiestas held annually in Consell are something that you should really try and experience if you plan on visiting the region. The first of these, which celebrates Saint Antoni, the patron saint of animals, is held in mid-January; however numerous other celebrations follow, such as “Carnival” in February and the “Fiesta of Saint Bartolome”, the town’s patron saint in August. Regardless which of these flamboyant festivals you choose to visit, you are guaranteed to return you to your holiday home in Consell with a new respect for traditional Majorcan culture.

The weather in Consell

The Consell region experiences a typical Mediterranean climate, which generally results in mild wet winters and warm dry summers. The ideal time to stay in a Consell holiday cottage is consequently between May and November, although Majorca is generally thought of as a great year round holiday destination, with more to the island than just the beaches.

Getting to Consell

Since the construction of the new Palma de majorca to Inca highway, the journey from the airport to Consell along the Ma-13a highway has become an extremely pleasant affair, owing to the lack of heavy tourist traffic. The trip should consequently take you approximately 30 minutes, and may be undertaken via shuttle bus, taxi, train, or rental car. If you choose to travel to your Consell holiday home by rental car however, you will certainly want to stop along the way in order to take in some of the amazing scenery that Majorca has to offer.

We had an amazing week - there were 6 adults and 2 children, plenty of space for us all. Beautifully decorated. Kitchen very well equipped. Location is excellent, just a very short stroll into the centre of Soller. There was nothing we could fault at all. We look forward to coming back again in future. Thank you.

Lots of space and well maintained pool and gardens (even if pool a little cold as not heated). I would recommend a hire car as there are no shops / beaches etc in walking distance, but it didn't matter to us as we all had cars. Only 30min drive to Palma and other nice beaches and villages. Fabian and his wife were lovely and very responsive to any queries we had.
