PALMA de Mallorca has recently been voted ‘The Best Place to Live in the World’ by the Financial Times and sits in the top 3 of Conde Naste Magazine´s recent survey.
With a picturesque and historic old city, beaches within walking distance, a friendly and easy-going community, an affordable cost of living and a great climate with 300 days of sunshine – it has everything one could possibly want for a relatively small and unassuming Mediterranean island.
The city of Palma is also only a short drive (10 minutes) from the airport, with plenty of cheap flights to mainland Europe and the UK (LGW just over 2 hours) making it easily commutable.
But that´s only part of the story…
Recently awarded the honour of becoming a World Heritage Site, Mallorca has beautiful mountains, a flat and fertile wine producing region in the interior and a beautiful and varied coastline that stretches for 550km.
Ancient culture and rich traditions, festivities, and a wide array of entertainment, intertwine with Michelin acclaimed gastronomy, fine wines and an assured status as a European centre for the yachting industry, among a multitude of other exciting outdoor activities.
As an island, Mallorca offers a safe environment with very low serious crime rates.
Real estate may typically be more expensive than the mainland, but it is also more exclusive and generally a better investment, with low supply and high demand underwriting property values and currently driving prices up.
Its solid position as a high end holiday destination affords the island immediate status for high rental potential through consistent demand with its growing profile attracting a steady stream of new buyers to a second home in the sun.
So if you’re looking for your own slice of paradise, look no further than Mallorca.
• A mild climate with 300 days of sunshine and the benefits of a Mediterranean lifestyle.
