Best places to stay in Majorca
The current name of Mallorca has its origin in the Latin name of the island: "insula maior", which means the largest island. Mallorca is not only the largest island of the Balearic Islands, but also in the whole of Spain. Mallorca is not only the largest island of the Balearics, but also in the whole of Spain. With Menorca in the northeast and Ibiza in the southwest, the Balearics form a unique ecosystem with a rich history and an interesting, independent culture. The first discovery of copper dates back to the Neolithic period and thanks to many archaeological finds in Mallorca and Menorca, particularly the Puig de sa Morisca, there is evidence to this day of Talayot culture. However, the most significant legacy was to emerge many centuries later, during the occupation by the Romans, at the opposite end of the island. Near Alcúdia, the ancient city of Pollentia was founded in the 1st century BC and converted into a necropolis in the 6th century AD. The most important historical event of the island is the year 1229, when Jaume I defeated the Muslims and the island passed into the rule of the Crown of Aragon. As a sign of victory, the construction of the famous Santa Maria de Mallorca Cathedral, which is still the island's landmark, began the same year. Since then, Mallorca has developed from being an island mainly known for its cattle to an important national level and also as an international destination for tourists. Across the whole island you will find an endless selection of incredible holiday rentals in Mallorca. Since the individual locations differ greatly from each other, we are happy to help you get a brief overview.
- Palma de Mallorca: The capital of the island offers you the biggest cultural and commercial offer simultaneously. The Cathedral of Majorca, El Baluard and Castell de Bellver are the most famous sights, while the Passeig del Born and Avenida de Jaume III are the main shopping streets of Palma. Alternatively, you can get lost along the tiny streets of the Old Town. In the bay you will find the main port of the island, and the famous Playa de Palma, which is a city beach that stretches along the city. From the capital you can reach all major cities and towns by public transport, making an apartment here an interesting option for your holiday in the Balearic Islands. Find your Majorca holiday rentals with a few clicks. It is a vibrant and creative hub that is steeped in history, and has some of the best restaurants and bars on the island, so get searching.
- Calvià: This is definitely the tourist centre on Mallorca, which is especially famous for wild parties in the coastal towns of Magaluf and Santa Ponsa, where you are bound to find cheap apartments to rent. Santa Ponsa is also the place where Jaime I of Aragón went ashore to recapture the island. Travellers with small children and those seeking peace and quiet will find something in Paguera or Palma Nova that is a quiet and family friendly option. Here you might also be interested in staying in Portal Nous, which overlooks the marina and has a nice selection of shops and cafes and a small beach.
- Alcúdia: The region around Alcúdia is similar to Calvià, but is located on the opposite side of the Sierra de Tramuntana between the bays of Puerto de Pollensa and Puerto de Alcúdia, the latter of which has a great offer of north Majorca holiday lettings. The geographical position combines the green of the mountains with the blue of the Mediterranean, and will leave you with an unforgettable impression. Families, couples and water sports enthusiasts will feel at ease in a holiday apartment in Alcúdia.
- Andratx: A town with many stunning farmhouses also known as ‘fincas’, alongside some of the most fantastic luxury villas. In the south west of the island among the Tramuntana Mountain range, it has a number of notable residents, is typical of the local villages with its narrow streets and has an important contemporary art gallery. Meanwhile, Puerto de Andratx should not be confused with the previous town located further inland. This trendy working port has many cafes and bars, and plenty of luxury spas and leisure activities. If not a location for villas with pools, it is certainly worth a visit during your trip.
- Sóller: Located in the heart of the Sierra de Tramuntana, the town is known throughout the island for its beauty. Particularly noteworthy is the Tranvía de Sóller, which connects Palma with Sóller and the port. In a holiday apartment in Sóller, you can escape the daily routine and enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains. Not far away you will find sleepy villages like Deià, Fornalutx or Escorca which are also fantastic for your trip and have some enviable Majorca villas and apartments with private pools. You’re sure to fall in love with this quaint village, replete with green shutters and positioned perfectly between the sea and mountain range. It is now a popular hub with creatives and has been the source of much literary inspiration thanks to its typical holiday villas in Majorca. Fornalutx is the only coastal town without a beach, and overlooks the mountains from Sóller. It has become known as the ‘prettiest village in Spain’, as it is surrounded by lemon groves, stone buildings and quaint tiled roofs in some of the most fantastic large villas in Majorca. Alternatively, if you’re looking for proximity to the sea, we also have accommodation in Puerto de Sóller.
- Santanyí: The only place on our list in which the municipality is located on the southeast side of the island. Booking here will guarantee peace and quiet, although the famous Cala d'Or is a tourist magnet. Cala Almunia, Es Caragol or Caló des Moro are among the quietest beaches on the island. They all border the spectacular nature reserve Cala Mondragó.
- Valldemossa: The sleepy village in the Serra de Tramuntana is often referred to as the most beautiful mountain village in Mallorca and was, among other things, the winter residence of the famous composer Chopin. The beautiful stone houses are hard to mistake, and you will certainly love its mountainous location. With a private holiday letting, you can walk in the footsteps of the artist and get to know the charming village by the way.
- Cala Ratjada: The small fishing village in the northeast enchants many with some of the most beautiful beaches of the island and a charming town centre, which has managed to retain its flair. Staying in one of the holiday homes that are available here is suitable for young party people, as well as for families.
- Cala Millor: The name of the place literally means as much as "better bay". Therefore, it is not surprising that the main attraction is the long sandy beaches that have made the resort a popular holiday destination in recent years. Book your apartment in Cala Millor for an unforgettable family holiday.
When to travel to the largest Balearic island
Undoubtedly, the best time to visit the island is summer, when the sun shines for longer than any other season. So you can fully enjoy the 262 beaches with more than 50 kilometres of sand, to which Mallorca owes its reputation as a paradise in the Mediterranean. Whether Cala Deià, Cala Mitjana, Cala Maioris or Es Coll Baix, there are so many different that it is impossible to visit them all. For beach lovers, this is definitely a summer destination. A fact that is clearly reflected in the prices of villa rentals, which increase by up to 150% between June and September. The strongest demand for luxury villas with a private pool is concentrated in the months of July and August when most tourists flock to the island. Furthermore, in the summer months, the famous festivals take place in the villages, which continue to raise prices. Nevertheless, Majorca - as well as its neighbours Menorca and Ibiza - know no seasons and the good weather dominates almost the whole year, from the first spring day to autumn. The falling temperatures in autumn offer great opportunities to explore the cultural treasures that during the summer months are almost too hot to visit. Even hikers and cyclists will feel comfortable in the spring and usually prefer the months of February to May. Perhaps you would be interested in a trekking tour through the Torrent de Pareis, La Trapa or Barranc de Biniaraix. The Fiestas de San Sebastián, which take place on the 20th of January in Palma de Mallorca, are a great reason to visit at this time, along with the stable prices from October to March on the island for finding cheap accommodation or last minute villas! Escape the cold and spend a weekend in Palma de Mallorca! Here the sun shines more than 300 days a year - and you will be spoilt for choice with its paradisaical beaches.

Today you can enjoy a view over Palma from here.
