Why should you rent a holiday home in Mallorca? Renting a holiday home in Mallorca has many benefits. Whether you want a swimming pool or sea views, Engel & Völkers has a wide selection of luxurious rental villas and apartments that will suit your every need. So, if you are wondering why you should rent a holiday home in Mallorca, here are the reasons!
1. Excellent climate all year round in Mallorca
Mallorca is a Mediterranean island paradise with perfect holiday weather. Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year, summers are hot and sunny whilst winters are mild and dry. This guaranteed warmth makes Mallorca the ideal holiday destination all year round, but especially during spring and summer when you can spend your days at the beach and evenings under the stars.
2. Outstanding natural beauty and the best beaches
With 208 beaches to choose from, the island of Mallorca is a dream. Swim, snorkel and paddleboard in the clear turquoise sea or relax on the golden sands of one of the many coves that are dotted along the 500 km of coastline. On land, you can cycle, hike or drive the dramatic mountain roads of the Tramuntana Mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that stretch from the southwest to the far northern tip - a spectacular sight to behold.
3. Easy access and excellent transport links in Mallorca
Although Mallorca is the largest island in the Balearic archipelago, the fast network of motorways allows you to drive from one side of the island to the other in just an hour and a half. What’s more, Palma de Mallorca Airport, located 10 minutes outside of the capital city, is one of the leading airports in Europe. Efficient and well connected to the mainland of Spain, the airport is only a 30-minute flight away, and there are frequent flights to all main European cities, which will connect you to international destinations with ease.
4. Gastronomy, culture and sports - Mallorca's great diversity
Mallorca has something for everyone and there is always plenty to do. During summer, the island’s cultural and social calendar is packed with traditional fiestas, concerts and even open-air cinema screenings. Palma’s excellent culinary scene will excite even the most discerning of palates and the many vineyards scattered across the island are a perfect day out. Of course, watersports are especially popular during the summer months when the cool Mediterranean Sea provides respite from the perpetual sunshine: try your hand at windsurfing, paddleboarding and scuba diving.
5. Mallorca, a safe holiday destination
Health and safety are a priority for the Balearic Government and Mallorca is considered a safe holiday destination. Although it is unnecessary to quarantine upon your arrival in Mallorca, it is still mandatory to wear face coverings in public and social distancing measures should be observed. Nevertheless, shops, bars and restaurants are open and life is returning to normal. Due to the constant updating of information, please consult the requirements in your home country and Spain before travelling.

2. Holiday rentals in Mallorca: Private, discreet and safe
Upon renting your own holiday home in Mallorca, the greatest luxury is that you, your family and your friends will have your own space and privacy to sit back and relax. We will ensure that the booking and checking-in process are simple and quick, which leaves you with nothing to worry about but settle in and start your vacation! Unlike hotels, a privately rented property means that you have your own facilities, for example, a fully-equipped kitchen where you can prepare food if you wish, and your own swimming pool and grounds where you won’t be interrupted by anyone. Renting also ensures that you can form a bubble with your nearest and dearest so that you all stay safe.
