Why You Should Stay in Palma Villas
Palma, the capital of the Balearic Islands, is located on the southern coast of Mallorca. It’s been hailed by ‘The Sunday Times’ as one of the best places to live in, and it’s not difficult to figure out why.
The city ticks off all the right boxes: picturesque beaches, impressive historic and cultural attractions, intriguing museums, Gothic churches and a lively dining scene.
Villas in Palma
There are a wide range of luxury villas in Palma to accommodate different types of travellers—from couples on a romantic retreat, to families with young children and large group getaways.
Your Palma villa
is ideally located, so you get the best of both worlds—having the convenience of being located close to the heart of the city, while enjoying the tranquility and privacy of staying in a quiet residential area.
The interiors are beautifully appointed, featuring a mix of traditional and modern decor; the exposed stone walls and vaulted ceilings blend in seamlessly with contemporary furnishings and art works. You can relax at one of the many outdoor spaces in your Palma villa: stroll through the lush gardens, dine alfresco at the terrace or enjoy a barbecue by the poolside.
Family activities in Palma
From your Palma villa, it takes a 10 to 20 minutes’ drive to arrive at Palma Aquarium
. Your kids will enjoy the touch pool, ocean exhibits and the AquaDome—an immersive 3D experience that educates visitors about humpback whales.
The train ride to Soller
is another family-friendly experience not to be missed. It’s quite an experience riding the vintage train, and the journey through tunnels, viaducts and bridges offers jaw-dropping views.
