Make a holiday villa in Ses Covetes your home away from home

The tiny seaside village of Ses Covetes, which means ‘Little Caves’ in Spanish, lies near the southern tip of Majorca, approximately 50 km southeast from Palma. With fewer than 100 permanent inhabitants and a sunny-but-quiet windswept beach, Ses Covetes is a popular spot for holidaymakers looking to escape the dense crowds found in more populated parts of Majorca. Spacious and luxurious holiday homes abound here and HomeAway represents a large array of these homes as well as numerous villas and even apartments. Perks at the properties range from breathtaking sea views to generously-sized private pools. Holiday villas in Ses Covetes can sleep anywhere from 6 to 14 people, whilst holiday apartments in Ses Covetes can typically accommodate 4 to 6 guests easily.

Things to do in Ses Covetes

Ses Covetes is a fairly small village with a pretty and family-friendly 300-metre beach backed by gently rolling sand dunes. An appealing base to explore Majorca’s natural beauty, Ses Covetes holiday homes enjoy easy access to several prominent national parks as well as some of the island’s most famous beaches.

-Platja El Trenc (El Trenc Beach) has crystal clear waters stretched out over 3 kilometres of white sand beach making El Trenc Majorca’s most well-reviewed beach. Extremely busy on summer weekends, El Trenc features gentle waves and a soft slope that makes it very popular with families. Backing the beach is a series of bars and restaurants -- the perfect venue to watch the sun go down over the ocean before a gentle stroll back to your Ses Covetes holiday villa.

-Snorkelling and Diving enthusiasts will find excellent sites in south east Majorca. The waters here are very clear and underwater excursions regularly depart from Sa Rapita, just a short drive from Ses Covetes. The ecosystem beneath the waters of Majorca is diverse and complex. Snorkellers and divers can expect to encounter groupers, octopuses, moray eels and more.

-Sa Rapita Beach is El Trenc’s quieter counterpart. Featuring the same gentle sand dunes and fantastically clean waters, Sa Rapita is a great alternative to El Trenc if you don’t feel like dealing with the crowds. The 1 kilometre beach is flanked by the Sa Rapita Yacht Club on one end, which offers sailing lessons to visitors.

-Cabrera National Park is just 10 kilometres from the southern tip of Majorca, and an accessible day trip from holiday homes in Ses Covetes. The small chain of islands here is home to countless species of flora and fauna that are endemic to the Balearic Islands. The Lilford's Wall Lizard is one such example of a species that can only be found in Cabrera National Park.

-Parc Natural Mondrago is an unspoilt slice of Majorca not far from Ses Covetes and, like Cabrera National Park, features a complex and fragile ecosystem. This is an ideal place for nature walks and bird watching.

The weather in Ses Covetes

South east Majorca enjoys mostly sunny weather with high temperatures above 20°C from April through October each year. Water temperatures are equally enticing, though if you are planning on a lot of hiking and day excursions, the spring and autumn months are the best time to visit. High temperatures regularly top 30°C in July and August, with rain a relatively rare occurrence until the winter months.

Getting to Ses Covetes

Flights to Majorca’s airport in Palma operate from nearly every major city in Europe from late spring into early autumn. Once in Majorca, the best way to reach Ses Covetes is by car. Car hire is available from the airport and vehicles can be reserved in advance. Alternatively, taxis from the airport can take you straight to your holiday villa in Ses Covetes in about an hour.

Yes, it has been said already the pool is small. Honestly I would have made it at least a metre wider an longer, but hey it isn't. There were 2 of us and it was perfect for a dip and to cool off, so what else can I find wrong, well nothing really. It is 300 metres from the beach next to the Hotel Cala D'or where we swam and snorkelled and it is never that crowded. It is 300 metres from the Marina and probably no more than 400 metres from the town, if that is your thing. Location wise it is in a small side road away from it all and is quiet, just peaceful and it has a garage. Because the trees provide some privacy, they also restrict full on sunbathing between 10.30 and around 6.00pm, the terrace up top has bamboo above that provides no protection from the rain, which I would change (we had 2 hours of rain) but is a fantastic place to sit and watch the boats enter and leave the marina, you can also hear the sea crashing into the rocks. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. We only used the main bedroom, so cannot comment on the others, but basically we loved it and would go back in a heartbeat. Alicia, who met us was very nice and more than helpful, nothing it seemed would be a problem and indeed it wasn't. She even offered that we could check out later as no-one was coming until the next day, very accommodating and exactly the service you want. Why haven't I given it 5 out of 5, well mainly the pool, the terrace covering (it rained remember and the terrace table was covered in whatever is on top of the bamboo and a pool of water) and I can't give it 4.5 stars, because it is. 5 out of 5 would need a bigger pool, but remember for me it was fine. If the rating was out of 10 it would be 9. Thanks Alicia, we had a fantastic time.
