Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Palma de Majorca your home away from home

Many resorts in Majorca (Mallorca) have a bad reputation as a neon-lit, culture stripped party towns, but this is really not the case with the Palma de Majorca area. The majority of people coming to Majorca pass through in their hire car on the way from the airport to their holiday accommodation elsewhere on the island, but few stop and explore what is quite possibly the nicest area in Majorca.

Things to do on holiday in Palma de Majorca

It is surprising that a region can have such a great level of culture, history and nightlife combined in one area, but somehow, Palma de Majorca has managed it. Originally inhabited in Roman times, Palma has a long history, and those still living in the old quarter regularly find Roman artefacts less than a metre below the surface.

If you are looking for Majorca holidays to provide all night parties and raves, you need to head west to Magaluf or one of its neighbouring resorts. Having said this, the nightlife is lively and great fun, with a calendar filled with concerts, festivals and exhibitions of all varieties, details of which can be found in the Palma tourist information office.

There are some delightful beaches in the Palma de Majorca area. The Bay of Palma is surprisingly free of beaches, but on either side of the Bay are the beach resorts of Cala Mayor and C’an Pastilla. Here you can relax with the sand between your toes, swim or sail. Windsurfing and kite surfing are also hugely popular activities, and easily practiced from a villa in Palma de Majorca.

Places to visit on holiday in Palma de Majorca

The city of Palma is the commercial centre of the island, and as a result, many of the best shopping and finest restaurants can be found here. It is also the cultural centre of Majorca, home to the Royal Palace, Castle of Bellver and the Palma Cathedral, one of the largest gothic structures in the world. The fact that Palma was voted the best place to live in Spain speaks volumes for the city.

Golfers will be in heaven in Son Vida; a luxury golf and spa resort on the coast of Palma de Majorca. The old course was renovated in 2001, making it one of the most luxurious golf and spa resorts in Spain. In Palma you can find one of the best selection of holiday villas in Majorca. Restaurants are excellent and there is even a golf school.

Weather in Palma de Majorca

Majorca’s climate is excellent, with blissfully warm summers in which temperatures average almost 30°C, although reliable sea breezes keep the air refreshing. In winter, temperatures are cooler but not cold, with temperatures almost never dropping below 10°C.

Travel to Palma de Majorca

Starting your Palma de Majorca holiday could not be easier. The Palma de Majorca Airport is located just 8km from the city centre, and transfers are easy. There are also a range of firms offering car hire in Palma de Majorca and the airport, so getting around will not pose any problems. There is also a shuttle bus which leaves every 15 minutes.

He was very easy to communicate with. It was very easy to pick up the key to the apartment upon arrival. The apartment is super nice, everything was very clean and Miquel had also bought a bottle of sparkling wine together with some mineral water in the fridge. What a lovely way to Welcome the guests! We stayed nearly 3 weeks and loved every minute. The apartment is so well equipped, in the kitchen you can find anything you need. The apartment is located at the absolutely best location in Portixol, direct my the water/beach in front of you. The view from the terrace is to die for. Just watching the life outside with all the people walking, bike riding, roller blading with a mix of people in all ages is fantastic. It is never a dull moment staying in this apartment. At the top of the building is a great lovely sunny big terrace were you can sunbathe. We will come back again in the fall because no other place is like this place, walking distance to Palma, lots of bars and restaurants in the area. We just LOVED it and Miquel is a great host. See you soon again Miquel and Thanks again! Hugs from Monica with friends

Loads of room, various seating places inside and out ensuring 18 people can be both together and get some of their own space at the same time. Rooms amazing. Location sleepy at first glance in daylight, but at night you discover hidden gems of restaurants​. Easy walk to Palma. Bus route 1/4 mile away.
