Make a holiday cottage in Muro your home away from home

Situated in north eastern Majorca, the small municipality of Muro is a quiet corner of the island where visitors can enjoy the sun and the sea, as well as local culture. HomeAway has a wonderful selection of holiday cottages in Muro. These cottages can accommodate travel parties of varying sizes and come beautifully furnished. Some even include swimming pools, generously sized outdoor terraces and more. Staying at a holiday cottage in Muro is a convenient way to enjoy the natural beauty of the island without dealing with the crowds of more densely populated areas like Palma and Magaluf.

Things to do in Muro

Muro’s old centre is home to several hidden gems, though most visitors choose to stay in Muro holiday homes because of the proximity to Alcudia Bay and other nearby spots of immense natural beauty. North east Majorca is an outdoor paradise with plenty of opportunities for hiking, cycling and water sports.

-Alcudia Bay has tranquil and shallow waters making this an ideal waterside location for families. Though Alcudia Bay can be considered a mainstream resort area, it is still much quieter and more family-friendly than Palma. There are plenty of things to do along the bay, including taking a short walking tour into Alcudia’s Old Town, or renting a bicycle and enjoying the views along the waterfront. Alcudia Bay is also full of great restaurants and is an excellent place to grab dinner if staying in a Muro holiday cottage.

-Playa de Muro is the closest beach to Muro and in recent years has transformed from a quiet seaside community to an upmarket resort area. Like in Alcudia, the water here is shallow and tranquil. Along with swimming and sun lounging, there are plenty of water sports facilities here where visitors can try their hand at sailing, kite-surfing and snorkelling.

-Muro Ethnological Museum is housed within a traditional 17th home. This fascinating museum sheds light on how locals lived their lives on Majorca in the late 19th and early 20th century. The museum contains authentic artefacts and each room is dedicated to a different aspect of rural Majorcan life. Located in Muro’s Old Town, it is an easy trip from most Muro holiday cottages.

-S’Albufera Nature Park is Majorca’s largest stretch of unspoilt land. S’Albufera Nature Park is a haven for wildlife as well as hikers and cyclists. This protected wildlife area is home to wetlands, secluded beaches and other amazing habitats where native plant and animal species can flourish. Rough trails crisscross the park and provide visitors with unparalleled views of the island.

-Cycling is a popular activity in and around Muro, thanks to an abundance of designated ecological trails and quiet B-roads. Bicycles can be hired for as little as 5 Euros a day and visitors can choose to embark on their own adventure or take part in an organised tour through this beautiful corner of Majorca.

The weather in Muro

Muro enjoys warm weather for a vast majority of the year, with the most pleasant temperatures occurring between May and October each year. Not surprisingly, this coincides with Majorca’s high season. In the winter temperatures can dip into the teens and rain is more frequent, but many prefer this time of the year for hiking and cycling. Beach and water lovers will want to visit in the spring, summer and early autumn months for the most sun and the least amount of rain.

Getting to Muro

The easiest way to get to Majorca is by flying to the airport in Palma. Frequent flights operate from most major European cities starting from May through to October each year. From the airport, Muro is best reached by taxi or car hire. Muro holiday homes are a bit more than an hour from the airport and taxi fare will cost around 80 Euros.

The house is simple but spacious and had everything we needed for a fantastic holiday. The pool is not heated but that didn't bother us. There is a large garden filled with citrus trees. The smell of the fruit was divine! There are oranges, grapefruit and lemons. It was a great place for hide and seek! There is a large table and area to eat outside and relax in the sunshine. Muro is a perfectly situated town with all necessary facilities. The mountains and beaches are all within 45mins. The mountains make for a beautiful backdrop for the town. Muro is not a tourist destination so gives a pleasant break from the boards. I would recommend this house to cyclists, families and anyone who wants to have a varied holiday on this beautiful island.

Wir hatten eine traumhafte Zeit und haben es in vollen Zügen genossen. Der Pool ist groß und der Garten ist wunderschön, die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet und von Muro ist man schnell bei allen Sehenswürdigkeiten der Insel. Die Kommunikation mit der Hausherrin war immer freundlich und direkt. Es war bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal, dass wir diese Location besucht haben und wir werden diesen Platz bei unseren Freunden wärmstens weiterempfehlen!

We were told that we could use fresh produce from the garden and we also received some goodies in the fridge.. The villa has so much space and the layout is perfect..we were a party of 10 including 6 children and they loved the villa and the pool. The attention to detail is amazing, the garden lights in the evening are awesome and we spent hours just sat outside during the warm evenings on the huge amount of outdoor furniture..the villa was spotless and the all linen and towels were provided. The location is perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday, all private and safe for children, the nearest shops are 5 mins away by car and the nearest beach about the same amount of time..the beachs are beautiful.. All in all a fantastic holiday in a beautiful perfect villa. Highly recommended..we will be back..
