Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the island of Mallorca, more commonly known as Majorca by the British contingent. Palma also reigns as the symbolic capital of the rest of the Balearic Islands, including Minorca and the little known party island of Ibiza! It has been one of the most common holiday destinations for many countries around the world, but especially the UK. Us Brits, love the weather, the welcoming people and the wonderful culture and for this reason it will remain an all time favourite of the UK tourist.
The average holiday?
Mallorca itself has a reputation as being a bit of a party island. With over 22 million tourists flooding through Palma de Mallorca airport each year – mainly between the months of late April and October – it’s not hard to find a party somewhere!
So that’s just it, with 22 million Brits, Germans and Scandinavians pouring onto the island each year – the island’s main tourist beaches are positively surrounded by large hotel complexes with all-inclusive packages. If the thought of being up at the crack of dawn to make sure you beat the Germans to the holiday loungers by the pool, then why not think out of the box and consider one of the Mallorca villas in the city of Palma?!

Rental prices in the capital
Palma de Mallorca is a city steeped in history and culture, but it also provides an energetic nightlife scene and plethora of designer shopping options. Villas are available in the city centre from as little as £100 per night. For this you can have a rather bohemian style roof top villa with a beautifully picturesque view across the city and down into the glistening turquoise port of Palma.
Equally bohemian you can have mid-level apartments with opening French doors and balcony, Parisian-style. These villas can be located in the Old Town and are often spotted down narrow cobbled side-streets. Prices again start from around £100 a night but better deals can be had depending upon the season that you are travelling in and the length of stay.
The benefits of a villa holiday
A villa of this kind is all about immersing yourself in the local culture. This is a holiday where you will have local Spanish neighbours and you will be able to drink and party where the locals hide from the tourists. It’s a cultural experience!
Palma de Mallorca is home to 400,000 locals. The city is a bustling vibrant place to be – with two thousand years worth of history to experience plus more shops and bars and restaurants than your wallet could ever afford.
Mallorca villas in the city and along the coast by the port are such a wonderful change of pace and scene from the standard Mallorca experience. This island hasn’t been ruined by the Club 18-30 rep and the Jaegerbomb – far from it! Villas in Mallorca offer a cosmic blend of culture and fast-paced city living to rival any European capital – whilst also having the beautiful views of the port of Palma to enjoy.
