Just a short flight from the UK will take you to the beautiful island of Majorca. Also known as Mallorca, this jewel in the Mediterranean is the largest of the an archipelago known as the Balearic Islands. The next three largest being Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. A longstanding favourite of the British tourist, the main resorts have quickly grown in both size and volume and it literally is now an island with something for everyone.
If you are under 30 and love going to resorts with plenty of nightlife Alcudia in the north and Magalluf in the south will satisfy your evening requirements. These bustling resorts are absolutely packed with tourists through the main summer months, and the sheer volume of noise and visitors make them resorts not for the hearted. The way to get the best of both worlds is to have a look at the villas in Majorca.
These are often set away from the centre of the top resorts, so you can chill out and sunbathe by your private pool through the day then hid into town in the evenings. Another bonus is the freedom to come and go as you please, and if you decide to make a real night of it and not come home until the early hours, you don’t have to worry about disturbing people in adjoining hotel rooms or apartments. You can even sleep on the sunlounger if you want.
Palma Nova, Puerto Pollensa and Santa Ponsa are all large resorts with a healthy nightlife but are more family orientated. If you are going on holiday in a large family group and are considering villas in Mallorca from Villa Parade, then these resorts are ideal. You can all relax around the pool and avoid the crowded beaches but stroll into town whenever you like. Chilling out by day and having fun by night are most people’s ideal holiday, and a villa is the easiest way to achieve this.
If sea and sand aren’t requirements of your ideal holidays, there are many smaller resorts inland that are charmingly Spanish. The town of Alaro is set in beautiful countryside and Valdermossa nestles in the mountains of the north west of the island. Both these resorts are popular with cyclists and there are plenty of villas to choose from near both of these towns. There is a villa is every part of Mallorca and there is one to suit everybody.
