With its picturesque scenery, it’s unsurprising that Mallorca is popular with kings, queens and Hollywood stars. Do you want to live like a royal? Buy an overseas property in the beautiful island to enjoy the gems it has to offer.
Mallorca, a Balearic Island, has attracted the world’s rich and famous for centuries. From Agatha Christie, to Grace Kelly, to Kate Moss, the postcard-esque island has become a popular setting for those in the spotlight to become inspired and take some downtime.
This month, Spain’s own King Felipe and Queen Letizia are taking their annual family holiday on the island. Staying in one of their residences in the capital of Palma, the family is expected to enjoy all that Mallorca has to offer until the end of August.
But it’s not just the monarchy that has chosen Mallorca as their European getaway; a growing number of Hollywood stars have also spent a lot of time there. Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones frequently visit the northwest of the island, while fellow power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly bought a home situated on the southwest coast.
For those looking to live like a royal and buy their own home in beautiful Mallorca, Taylor Wimpey España has an array of properties to choose from.
Its Marina Golf complex is less than 30 minutes from the capital of Palma, and is located next to the famous Santa Ponsa III Golf Club.
The new, Mediterranean-style village has spacious, three-bedroom townhouses with private terraces, gardens and private parking spaces. In the communal area, there is a swimming pool for the exclusive use of property owners, surrounded by a solarium area with views over the golf course and a large communal garden. There are also changing rooms, showers and toilets.
Prices start at €550,000 + VAT, and every townhouse has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, air conditioning, under floor heating in the bathrooms, double-glazing, a security door, TV aerial and satellite dish.
In order to ensure the maximum amount of light, the homes are southwest facing and have several terrace areas, so that the sun can be enjoyed for most of the day. Each property also has a large garden for residents to enjoy sunny Mallorca days and warm Mediterranean nights.
Santa Ponsa is in a great location, surrounded by some of the top golf clubs on the island, including Golf Santa Ponsa I, II and III, which are right next to the development, Golf de Andratx, Golf de Poniente and Bendinat Golf. It is also near the coast, in an area dotted with beautiful coves and beaches, and some of the island’s most exclusive marinas, such as the Puerto Adriano, designed by Philippe Starck, just 1.5 kilometres away and with a variety of elegant bars and restaurants, and some of the most exclusive designer boutiques.
For those with a more modest budget, the builder’s most recent development is the stunning Bahia Sant Pere. The complex is Mediterranean-inspired and located in the traditional northeast coastal village of Colonia de Sant Pere, perfect for those seeking a more rural escape for their holiday home.
Less than an hour from Palma’s international airport in the northeast of the island, and just a short distance from the local fishing port and Mallorca’s golden coastline, Bahia Sant Pere includes two and three bedroom apartments. From just €193,000 + VAT, all apartments have two bathrooms, an open-plan kitchen with breakfast bar and the use of a private parking space. Each resident will enjoy access to the development’s two swimming pools and luscious communal gardens.
Known for its outstanding natural beauty, the village of Colonia de Sant Pere allows visitors to experience the more rustic side of Mallorca, with the stunning landscape of the mountains of the Peninsula de Llevant Natural Park and the beautiful coast with the white sandy beach of Sa Canova.
