About Palma

Palma is also often referred to as Palma de Mallorca, and began its life as a Roman settlement in around 123BC. A lot of the original city was destroyed during the Spanish Civil War, but some historic architecture still remains, especially in Palma’s Old Town. The city is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Spain, seeing thousands of visitors flock to the beachfront, hotels and restaurants every year, particularly in the summer months.

Best Time to Visit

Palma is known for having perfect weather, with almost 300 days of bright, uninterrupted sunshine every year. The best time to visit the city if you’re looking for high temperatures is over the summer between June and September, but you’ll still get relatively warm and dry weather if you visit in the shoulder season for tourism outside of this period.

Best Things To Do In

There are plenty of things to do in Palma that can fill any length of holiday itinerary, from shopping to sunbathing and day trips out from the coast to other nearby towns and cities. If you enjoy sightseeing then visit places like the Palma Cathedral and Bellver Castle, whilst those interested in culture will enjoy the  Es Baluard Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art.

Spending time on the beach is another very popular activity for those in the city, with lots of different areas of the coast to choose from. Palma is also very well known for its nightlife, so if you like to party then you’re in the right place.

Best Places To Go In

The sprawling size of Palma means that there are plenty of different places to visit within the city across the various neighbourhoods. If you’re looking for fine dining and luxury shopping, the Paseo del Borne or ‘golden mile’ is a street that has lots of designer outlets and high-end restaurants. Casco Antiguo, or Old Town, is the historic centre of the city, whilst La Lonja is a very popular place to visit for tourists.

You’ve also got a range of beaches to visit when you stay in Palma, with options like Ca’n Pere Antoni near the Old Town, the huge Playa de Palma and the quieter Cala Estància.

What our guests say

Fantastic home for a fantastic stay. We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. Top tips from us - don’t stress about parking, the roads are very narrow and parking isn’t easy so use the car park on the way in to Pollensa. It’s only a 5 minute walk and is very safe. There is a lovely bakery just 2 minute walk away on the main road in and not far from the chemist. Enjoy!

Great villa, comfortable beds, clean and the welcome pack was really appreciated. Good location and the pool and table tennis went down very well with everyone.

Charming and lovely townhouse in the old part of Pollenca. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. House is really well equipped. ACs in all the rooms meant it was never too hot even in the August. High walls give a lot of privacy and also make the sun more bearable. Pool was lovely. We quickly got used to parking in the side streets around the house, but it is also possible to park slightly outside the town. We used a car to go Puerto Pollenca to get to the fantastic beaches. Their Internet was good enough for video calls for work Communication with the manager was easy and quick. Would clearly recommend and also go back.

"The villa was very well presented, spotlessly clean, and surprisingly well equipped – it even had a tea-pot! The welcome pack was probably the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen!.. Pollenca is a good base if you want to have good access to the coast without being in a coastal resort."

We had a great stay and the communication with Colin was brilliant. The villa is very clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the steps in are great for children. The pool was also really warm considering it’s not heated and the view of the mountains is fantastic. Lovely quiet area but a 25 min walk into the square in Pollenca and 5 min drive to the Port. Lovely area and lots of great restaurants and beaches nearby. We were a family of 8 (7 adults and one child) and would definitely like to return :)
