Majorca, known as Mallorca to locals, is an island awash with irresistible tastes, smells and sights.
Located in the middle of the Mediterranean, this beautiful island provides the perfect combination of sun, sea, sand and sangria. Choosing a villa holiday means you can come and go as you please, whether you spend time relaxing and sunbathing by the pool or use the villa as your base for an adventure filled holiday.
Majorca initially draws people in with its positive reputation of being the ideal sun-soaked holiday destination, but the island’s rich culture and charisma keeps people coming back year after year. With miles of spectacular coastline, Majorca offers a mix of resorts from intimate coves to lively towns, so you can be certain to find a spot that will be just what you’re looking for.
Foodies will delight at the wide range of cuisine available to EAT in Majorca. Homemade paellas are a popular dish, with fresh fish being caught locally each day. Be prepared for your taste buds to be tickled by Majorcan cuisine as you dig into speciality dishes such as Frito Mallorquin or Suckling Pig.
There’s plenty to SEE in Majorca, so make sure you’ve always got a camera to hand. There is the capital Palma, an easy daytrip from most villas, which is full of lively restaurants, a variety of shops and interesting museums as well as the glorious cathedral. Or in contrast, there is Alcudia which is a haven with golden, sandy beaches, water sports of all kinds and a pretty marina.
If you’re looking for something to DO, why not get close to nature and discover turtles, whales and dolphins along the coast. Maybe take a hot air balloon flight to admire the island in all its glory from above. Or alternatively, hire bikes and spend the day exploring Majorca at your own pace, whilst sampling some of the delicious local vinos.
There are villas for all group sizes, from those ideal for couples to ones that mean the whole family can be under one roof. Large villas are ideal for spending quality time with the grandkids, whilst giving you enough space to relax too.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet holiday away from it all or you want a villa right in the heart of the action, you’ll be able to find the ideal villa from the extensive Villa Plus range, with free added extras including BBQs, private (often heated) swimming pools, games tables and WiFi.
