  • Wonderful 6-night stay in excellent accommodation

    "We were 2 senior couples who stayed 6 nights in Carlos & Lourdes' apartment in the Fort Pienc district of Barcelona. We planned this trip for over a year and looked at many apartments before choosing this one, and we were very happy we did. We chose it for location as we wanted to be close to where the action was during the Festival La Merce'. It is very close to Arc de Triomf where they held the wine festival. We were able to walk to almost everything we did. The apartment was very clean and tidy and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare breakfast each day and to keep our wine cold. The bathrooms were spacious and also very clean. The apartment is up on third floor from the street level, but there is a small elevator, so no stairs to worry about. Carlos was there to welcome us and addressed any concerns we had. Checking out was a breeze, as he came over the night before our early departure to return deposit, even letting us leave unused food in refrigerator, very unusual but much appreciated, as we had an early train to catch. I would rent this apartment again without hesitation if we needed 2 bedrooms and 2 separate baths. There were many small food markets and bars and restaurants in the blocks surrounding the apartment, as well as a large supermarket at Ft. Pienc, only one block away. We used the metro at Arc de Triomf, less than 3 blocks away. Also very handy transport to Sants and airport. We took a taxi from the airport only because we were 4 seniors with moderate luggage, and it was 36 Euro. I would recommend this apartment to anyone needing the space, and Carlos was a joy to work with, answering my emails very promptly."

Balearic Islands Travel Tips

Balearic Islands Vacation Rentals are Great Properties in a Lovely Year-Round Location

Spain’s Balearic Islands are a group of four islands--Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca (also referred to as Majorca), and Menorca. Situated off the east coast of mainland Spain, it is blessed with a typically Mediterranean climate. This provides summers that are pleasant with comfortable temperatures and mild dry winters with occasional showers.

There are international airports on both Mallorca and Ibiza, and ferry services from both the smaller islands of Menorca and Formentera. Once at your Balearic Islands accommodation, visitors may choose to hire a car but by far the most popular way to traverse some of the islands is by bike.

Your Balearic Islands Accommodation Offers Stunning Scenery and Great Nightlife

Balearic Islands vacation rentals on Mallorca reside on the largest of the Balearics, with over 200 beaches scattered around island’s 188 miles of coastline. To explore this 60-mile-wide island, there is an excellent train service and extensive bus services; however, the most popular choice for visitors is to hire a car. The two main beaches are the wide sandy bays of Magaluf and Palma Nova. Both are lively areas, great for young people. Further north is the huge bay area of Alcudia which is quieter and family-focused. For secluded beaches, visitors should head to Cala d’Or or Cala Millor. Many beaches are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving, allowing you to explore the marine life, underwater caves and shipwrecks. Visitors looking to combine the beach and horseback riding should go to Playa de Palma. There are also several world-class golf courses on the island. Day trips around the island make a great alternative to the beach and there are many charming towns and villages along the coast and into the stunning Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains.

The town of San Antonio on Ibiza is renowned as a party area with great nightlife and long white beaches. There is much more to this beautiful island than its party reputation. There are many beautiful secluded villages and hidden beaches to explore. Here, visitors can waterski, hire Jet Skis, learn to windsurf and try parasailing. Younger visitors will enjoy the banana boats and pedalos. It is also a great island for sailing and diving. Dive sites include underwater cliffs, caves and arches. There are also a variety of great golf courses that feature up to 18 holes.

One Vacation but Four Islands to Explore

While staying at Balearic Islands holiday villas, visitors should take an excursion to the island of Menorca. This is a smaller and less developed island of stunning natural beauty; it retains much of its Spanish atmosphere. On this island, visitors will find countless historic sites from prehistoric settlements and burial grounds to stunning medieval architecture. There are also some wonderful museums to enjoy.

The smallest island at just 12 miles long is that of Formentera. It is known as the "last paradise of the Mediterranean" because of its unspoiled and undeveloped landscape. A ferry trip to Formentera is a must when visiting your Balearic Islands accommodation. The beaches feature perfectly white sand and warm blue seas where visitors can easily find a secluded spot to relax and swim. It is also a popular diving area where the waters to the north are preserved as the Ses Salinas Nature Reserve. For those seeking activities, the island is excellent for lake-based windsurfing and parasailing.

Balearic Islands Holiday Villas are Idyllic Properties

Balearic Islands holiday villas are idyllic properties based on several of these beautiful islands. Each is individually owned and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay.
