Make a holiday villa in Son Vida your home away from home

Son Vida is a beautiful neighbourhood on the north western outskirts of Palma de Majorca known for its luxury hotels, villas and golf courses. Despite being just 6 kilometres from central Palma, lush and green Son Vida feels worlds away from the Majorcan capital. Situated over a series of winding, tree-lined roads, HomeAway features a wonderful assortment of holiday villas in Son Vida. With a variety of accommodations sleeping parties large and small, all Son Vida holiday villas are furnished to a high standard and many come with amenities such as a generous outdoor terrace space and private swimming pool. At the same time, the beach, numerous golf courses and the exciting centre of Palma are all just minutes away.

Things to do in Son Vida

Son Vida holiday villas are a popular choice for tourists looking for that extra bit of seclusion and luxury. Not surprisingly, the neighbourhood is characterised by several amazing golf courses and a few high quality spas. Just outside of Son Vida are all the wonderful sights of central Palma, as well as a wealth of other great attractions.

-Golf is the top activity of choice in Son Vida as the neighbourhood is surrounded by three beautiful golf courses. Arabella Golf Son Vida is the oldest and arguably most prestigious course on Majorca. It has hosted two professional tournaments in its history and boasts stunning views of the Bay of Palma. The course’s 18 holes are all situated within an old growth forest, which only adds to its charm. Two additional golf courses - also run by Arabella Golf - surround Son Vida. All three courses come well equipped with a clubhouse, shop, private lessons and more. Tee times can be booked online in advance.

-Beaches are within a short drive of Son Vida holiday villas and mum and kids can enjoy the fabulous sands and clear waters while dad is golfing. The closest beach is just 8 km away, whilst famous beaches like Playa de Palma Nova and Playa Es Trenc are 20 km and 45 km away respectively.

-Dinner shows are a popular night-time entertainment in Majorca. Son Vida’s location on the outskirts of Palma means that most holiday villas and homes in the neighbourhood are less than 20 minutes away from Magaluf. The seaside resort town lays claim to beautiful beaches, but is also well known for its elaborate dinner shows. The Pirates Adventure show is the most famous and has been seen by over 3 million people. Dinner shows mix an excellent meal with music, theatrics, acrobatics and more to create a memorable night for all in attendance.

-The centre of Palma de Majorca is just 10-15 minutes from most holiday homes in Son Vida. The sky's the limit as far as options for activities in this vibrant city. For a bit of culture, visit the Arab baths or the city’s old cathedral. Stroll through the scenic streets for some window-shopping or stop in a cafe with water views and watch the world go by. On a hot day, head to Playa de Palma Nova for a cool dip in the sea.

-Soller Railway provides a scenic train ride from Palma to Soller. This train dates back to 1912 and the journey takes tourists north from Palma, through the breath-taking Serra de Teratoma, and finally to the lovely seaside town of Soller. This beautiful journey is a must for any visitor to Majorca and doubles as a convenient way to travel to the northern half of the island.

The weather in Son Vida

The weather in Son Vida is very much like Palma and the rest of Majorca.

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.

It’s central setting meant easy access to the sights of Palma and the buses to take you further afield, to the excellent bodega around the corner and the many others in the narrow streets of the old town as well as to the shopping streets and the market de l’Olivar. All were just steps away from this clean, cool, calm apartment off a pedestrian street. We were delighted to discover we had two verandas and had breakfast in one every morning while we planned our day and a glass of wine every night as we relaxed.
