About the property

Flat in Palma Old Town, Mallorca, Balearic Islands - Located on one of Palma's Quietest and Most Beautiful Streets

This exquisite three bedroom apartment is constructed round the open stairwell of a 17th century building, making it especially light and airy. On the second (top) floor, it has no neighbours above it making it also wonderfully quiet. Two full bathrooms, one with bath and one with shower, roomy kitchen with all appliances. The flat is located in the ancient Calatrava district of the old walled city, and the foundations of the building are said to go back to Roman times. The dining room and the two main bedrooms look out onto a garden below, which can be identified on Moorish maps from the 9th century. This is a second home and boasts the evidence of the loving do-it-yourselfery typical of a well used holiday dwelling.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Son Sant Joan at 12 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Moderno at 200 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Taberna del Caracol at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Anima at 15 Kilometres Car: not necessary


The municipal beach is a short walk away. Other beaches can be reached by bus or car, including the famous Es Trenc, 35 minutes from the flat to the Southeast, or Alcudia, 45 minutes to the North.


Son San Joan (Juan) is Palma's beautiful new airport, 7 minutes away from your doorstep by bus or car. If you rent a car, keep in mind that parking in the neighbourhood is limited to vehicles with resident's permission stickers, except on Saturday afternoons and Sundays. There are streets nearby where cars may be parked free, but we find that guests often rent a car by the day, and turn it in in the evening to avoid parking it.


Flat is in the old part of Palma, the capital of the Balearic group of islands. Although Mallorca is the largest of these islands, it's still possible to drive leisurely across it, from and to the farthest points, in about an hour and a half. Thus Formentor in the far Northwest, is about that distance, Alcudia and Pollensa less, and Es Trenc in the Southeast no more than 35 minutes.

Further Details:

Walking distance to Palau Solleric Art Centre, Es Baluard Museum of Modern Art, many of Palma's Gothic and Baroque churches and the Cathedral (with the highly polemical 'fishes' nave designed and recently installed by Miquel Barcelo).

Luxury shopping street is 10 minutes on foot. Supermarkets and small grocery shops are 5-10 minutes on foot. There are several family owned restaurants a couple of minutes walk from the door.

  • Notes on accommodation: This flat is childproof, but since the kitchen and the entrance have French windows that give onto the stairwell, we like to advise parents that children ought not to climb the railings across these windows. These are the same height as any standard balcony railing and are at least as secure as any such railing. Owing to cross ventilation, the flat is cool in summer, and is helped in this by room fans. Roofs have been recently insulated and re-tiled, making the flat easy to heat in winter. Outside: The flat has a 15 sq m private terrace one flight up, with views across the rooftops to the spires of several of the ancient city's Renaissance and Gothic churches. Utility Room: Iron, ironing board, hair dryer, vacuum cleaner, mops and brooms. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are supplied and changed once a week. Flat is cleaned before guests arrive. We ask that you bring your own beach towels, as the bath and hand towels supplied are not for use on the beach. Other: The other rooms, the vestibule with armchairs and tables and the dining room which seats 8 with stunning window over ancient garden, complete the living rooms.
