Brilliant apartment in the perfect spot in Palma centre with easy walking to the sea front and Cathedral. The apartment is spacious,warm and beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. Spotlessly clean and ample space for four adults. Easy access from airport by bus and very short walk from where the bus drops you making it a very cheap transfer. Palma is also a great city with lots to offer. The apartment is located one block down from the city's largest department store. There is a real log fireplace in the apartment and under floor heating throughout and reverse heat A/C so you will be nice and warm during your stay.

About Blair

Originally I hail from Sydney but after 19 years in London I am now living on another beautiful island (Mallorca of course) in the South West corner and have done so since 2010.

I use the apartment myself when needing a spot of culture "in the city" and I love every visit. Palma is the perfect city to explore on foot and I never tire of it.

The apartment was fully refurbished in 2013 with no expense spared.

I had sent over 10 Bohemia crystal chandeliers which must be seen for that extra "wow" factor.

Having worked in Interior design for a number of years I have designed the apartment with the same high standard of fittings that I would want to enjoy myself. I hope you like them also.

Blair purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Blair chose Foners

I love this location. It is right in the City centre yet a short walk (10 mins) to Playa de Palma beach or a fantastic stroll or even perhaps a very easy cycle ride to Portixol with all it's cafes and restaurants to discover.

Located in a quiet residential street yet with every convenience you could wish for on your doorstep: Bakery, Butcher, Delicatessen selling great hot chicken amongst other delicacies, a Supermarket and even a Beer Garden directly on the corner. All this and still on the doorstep of the historic Old Centre of Palma.

I love it.

What makes this apartment unique

10 minute walk to the beach.

10 minute walk to Palma Cathedral.

10 minute walk to The Borne - one of "the" shopping streets of Palma.

5 minutes from the cultural and shopping centre of Palma!!!!!

10 minute walk to Plaza Espana / Railway Station to Soller and other parts of the island.

5 minute walk to El Corte Ingles Department Store.

Eroski supermarket diagonally opposite.

Deli opposite which does fantastic cooked meals for next to nothing.

Butcher's opposite.

Bakery around the corner.

Beer garden right on the corner with cheap beer.

Cheapest coffee in Palma on opposite corner (€1.00 and great coffee).

The Airport bus stops at the top of the street which is a two minute walk to the apartment.

I don't know what else to say ;-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Blair was the perfect host; he met us at the Apt and showed us around, afterwards we all popped a couple of doors down to the lovely beer garden, which soon became our second home, especially after a day on the beach, or for cheap post dinner drinks.

I must admit, prior to booking I was slightly concerned about the apt being in a residential area but my reservations soon vanished after a couple of minutes. Although it’s just outside what I call “the city walls”, it is only 10 mins walk to the beach and the same to Plaza Cort and Plaza Espana, two of our favourite squares. The Avenidos’ were literally 100m from the apartment and directly opposite a well-stocked supermarket.

The two double bed apt is on the 3rd floor so not ideal for anyone with accessibility issues. It has been completely renovated with the gorgeous bathroom and kitchen taking equal number one spot! The kitchen was so well equipped; we didn’t even get time to use all the gadgets.

The lounge is fully air conditioned, playing host to a massive TV with Sky, wifi, Bose docking station, easy chairs, sofa and table.

Blair kindly invited us to join him for lunch in Soller, where he was meeting friends, which was a lovely touch and the food was 5 star too!

On the final day Blair met us and even drove us to the Airport.

I love Palma and this quirky apt added its own distinctive dimension to the beautiful city.

Cozy Apt. Close to everything Palma

  • 4 of 5

Well and interesting appointed apt. very close to all services and attractions. The owner, Blair was very accommodating and even met us to help take up our luggage. There is no lift so get in shape before you come and travel light.

So many crystal chandeliers but so little time for ballroom dancing beneath them.

Thanks Blair for the travel tips.

Owner's Response: It was so nice to meet Keith & Barb and all the way from Canada. It must be the lure of the paradise Island. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would love to welcome you back whenever you like. Take care. Blair

Palma apt. With Great location and charming chandeliers... if you are not too tall!

  • 5 of 5

Blair is delightful. Location feels a little down at heels but it is within walking direction to most every sight. The charm starts once you get inside. I think it is priced fairly too.

Lovely apartment close to the old town.

  • 5 of 5

We met Blair at the bar a few doors away from the apartment, he was very friendly and informative.

The apartment was lovely, but be aware it is 3 floors up and there is no lift, it was fine for us as we didn't mind the walk up. The apartment had everything you could possibly want or need, the nicest touch for us were the 2 dressing gowns provided, we've never had that anywhere we've stayed unless it's been a hotel! Blair had left the essentials for us, loo roll, milk, tea coffee, butter, salt, pepper, oil etc, the cupboards had loads of crockery, glasses ,coffee cups etc.There was underfloor heating throughout and as we were there in January it was most welcome in the evenings. I liked the fact the apartment was filled with lovely things and didn't feel cold and stark, it felt like a home.

Don't be put off by the look of the area, it was safe and quiet and it took as just 10 minutes to walk to the cathedral, we were there during the local fiesta and walked home early hours from the old town it took us 15 mins.

We hired a car and although it's meter parking outside you can park for free a 10/15 min walk away, I'm not sure we would bother hiring a car next time as it's so close to everything and there is a supermarket directly across the road.

We walked into Portixol and El Moliner where there are some lovely restaurants right on the sea front and not too expensive.

I would be more than happy to stay in Blairs apartment again.

Owner's Response: It was great to meet you both and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes a car is not needed at all unless you want to explore the Island. And having free parking a short stroll away is a GOD send. The fact that the apartment is so central to everything yet located in an urban residential street let's you see two sides to the city - not many places where you can do that. Looking forward to your return visit. Blair

Calm and central flat, very clean and organized

  • 4 of 5

Were happy to stay in this appartement, it was a very nice city trip. The flat is cozy and clean and despite its central location, it is rather calm. The Owner was always kind and helped us out with many tips for near restaurants and trips. Recommended for short stays as well as for a longer holiday!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Yes considering the apartment's central location it is in a calm residential street yet a short walk from all the action Palma has to offer. Looking forward to welcoming your group back again. B

Nearest Airport
9 Kilometres
Palma de Mallorca
Nearest Ferry
2 Kilometres
Port of Palma
Nearest Beach
50 Metres
Palma main beach
Car: not necessary


Playa de Palma beach is a 10 minute stroll down the road. A very easy walk.

Portixol is a 20 minute walk away and well worth a visit with all it's bars and restaurants.

The good climate allows you to practice sailing, fishing, walking, bicycle, tennis, marathons, water-parks, nature beaches along with a huge diversity of landscapes.


How to get there: It is only 9km to the airport and 2km to the port. There is ample public parking directly in front of the apartment and in an underground one nearby but a car is not needed. The bus from the airport stops at the top of the street and then it is a two minute walk to the apartment. You are also a 10 minute walk to the main bus and train station meaning you can get to anywhere on the island with ease.


The beach, the Cathedral, the galleries, tapas bars, and cafes are all on your doorstep.
