A holiday home in sunny Palma de Mallorca, gateway to the island
Located on the west of the island of Mallorca, Palma is the island's beautiful capital. The city a rich history and proximity to many superb beaches, cultural spots and party destinations. Palma de Mallorca holiday homes allow you to experience this gorgeous island independently, making the most of the excellent weather and using the city as a base to see more of the island. Whether you want to see the sights, lounge on the beach all day or party until morning, Palma has it all.
Understanding Palma de Mallorca
With its history, numerous golden beaches, great shopping and plenty for families or groups of friends to do, Palma is the ideal base for a holiday home in Mallorca.
Historic landmarks in the sun
A relatively compact city, you will find it easy to walk around the main sights in this gorgeous corner of Spain. The Gothic Palma Cathedral is the centrepiece of the town’s history, with a canopy designed by Gaudí, creator of the famous cathedral in Barcelona. Climb the hill to the 14th century Bellver Castle and you will be rewarded with magnificent views over the harbour and town of Palma. The gardens and building of the Santuari de Lluc monastery are well worth visiting and the Royal Palace of La Almudaina is still used by the Spanish Royal Family. The Es Baluard complex houses a museum of contemporary art with a connection to the Balearic Islands.
Your own sanctuary with a Palma de Mallorca holiday home
A holiday in Palma doesn’t need to be restricted to the city itself. Take a quick bus ride and you will arrive at Can Pere Antoni beach, with its beautiful turquoise waters and golden sands, as well as a vibrant atmosphere particularly in the summer. Or head to Magaluf for an unforgettable night of partying. Whatever you are looking for, a Palma de Mallorca holiday home is an excellent way to see everything but stay independent. Perhaps a home with a private or shared pool would suit your needs? Patio gardens and centrally-located holiday apartments in Palma de Mallorca are also available.
A Palma de Mallorca holiday home for every traveller
If you are travelling with kids, it is nice to know that there is plenty for families to do on trips here. As most of the partying takes place at the nearby out-of-town resorts, you could spend your entire trip building sandcastles on the beach, enjoying meals by the harbour and walking and playing in the many city parks, forgetting the party scene exists. The nearby Aqualand water park is another great choice for a day out. Dog owners will be pleased to find that many accommodations are happy to accept dogs and the compact city is excellent for walking, especially on the outskirts of town by the water and around the hills which offer fantastic views. Groups of friends or solo travellers looking to join the party scene will find it easy to get the bus to Magaluf.
Enjoying delicious Spanish food in Palma de Mallorca
One of the joys of self-catering is that you can choose to buy and cook your own food. The supermarkets offer familiar tastes of home, or you can explore local ingredients such as cured meats and seafood. Then again, perhaps the idea of staying in your own apartment but going out to eat every night sounds appealing. Seafood paella served with sangria or iced tea, or simple continental-style dishes at the cafés by the water are all great options for eating out in Palma. Look out for delicious ensaimada pastries and coca de cuarto cakes in bakeries.
Huge amounts of choice for Palma de Mallorca holiday homes
There is a lot to choose from when it comes to types of accommodation in Palma, depending on the size of groups and what visitors are looking for from a holiday home here. Large villas for over a dozen guests and featuring private pools are ideal for groups of friends or multiple families holidaying together. If you are on a romantic trip or simply in a smaller group, an apartment right in the centre of town will make it easy to reach the main shopping street of Passeig des Born, where you can get the bus to the beach or other towns. An interesting alternative is renting a finca or an apartment by the sea if the beach is your main priority.
Exploring Palma de Mallorca
There is so much natural beauty to admire on Palma de Mallorca. A car or bus journey from Palma to the to Alcudia on the other side of the island takes less than an hour, meaning the whole of Mallorca is practically at your fingertips. Alcudia is a beautiful beach resort, part of what’s known as the ‘golden mile’ and offers a quaint retreat. At Andratx, which is nestled among the majestic Tramuntana Mountains, you can explore an ancient town with nearby valleys and forests. Driving or getting the bus there is worth it for the scenery alone. Halfway to Alcudia is the town of Inca, famous for producing leather and excellent for shopping and admiring the charming architecture.
Travelling to your Palma de Mallorca holiday apartment
Flights from Berlin and Vienna are frequent and take under three hours from both cities. The airport itself is just 20 minutes’ taxi ride from the centre of Palma. As part of Spain, you won’t need a visa as an EU citizen and you will find the airport and island in general is extremely well provisioned for visitors. Travelling to Palma is both easy and enjoyable and you will soon be strolling through its historic core or sunning yourself by the water.
The best time to visit Palma de Mallorca
Palma de Mallorca holiday apartments and houses can be enjoyed at any time of year. High season is undoubtedly in the summer, from June to September, when temperatures frequently reach the high 20s°C or 30s°C. This is the best time for the beaches, especially if you want to go swimming in the Balearic Sea, or perhaps head to the water parks. Spring and autumn are great for exploring the natural surroundings, as the hills and valleys will seem a more forgiving when it’s a little less hot. Even in January the thermometer very rarely dips below 10°C and this is a great time to enjoy the art, history, food and culture of Palma without the larger summer crowds.
