Overview of Mallorca
Often referred to as Majorca, Mallorca is a beautiful part of the world, and we believe that our private, luxury villas mirror this beauty perfectly. We have carefully selected the most beautiful villas to rent in Majorca throughout the island and not only in the most popular Deia and Soller areas.
Mallorca and Surrounding Areas
Choose from the sophisticated resorts of the south-west such as Andratx, Bendinata and Costa d’en Blanes, all just a short drive (or bus ride) from the capital city of Palma. Travel north of the island, and you’ll reach the popular towns of Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa, both perfect for family holidays. For a more relaxed, peaceful holiday, venture south-east for the unspoilt rural locations that are within easy reach of the stunning beaches.
Enjoy rides through the mountain roads or relaxing strolls through the narrow streets, sample the unique hospitality and delicious local dishes. Or, enjoy a long, relaxing day at one of the many beaches before returning to the beautiful surroundings of your luxury private villa rental in Mallorca.
Visiting local restaurants is a must during your trip to the island. Aside from the traditional Spanish cuisine, Mallorca has delicious delicacies, including Arros Brut, which is a traditional rice dish with seasonal meat and vegetables, mixed with a range of spices including saffron, paprika, nutmeg, pepper and clover. Unlike the famous Paella, Arros Brut is served with a flavoursome, soup-like sauce.
For those with a sweet tooth, keep an eye out for a traditional sweet pastry called Ensaimada. This delicious dish is traditionally made by hand to give the right texture and flavour. What makes this sweet pastry unique is the usage of reduced pork lard which adds extra taste, making it irresistible to eat.
Many tourists visit the UK, especially London, to get a glimpse of the Royal Family and visit Buckingham Palace. Likewise, tourists from around the world visit parts of Spain, including Mallorca to capture the Spanish Royal family and learn more about the region’s patriotic and traditional culture.
Mallorca is home to the Marivent Palace, the summer residence for the Spanish Royal Family. The palace is in Palma and is just one of the royal sites you can visit in Spain. The palace garden is open to the public; plus the beautiful Marivent Garden.
