Palma de Mallorca bigger houses: Enjoy as never
Like many countries, Spain’s recovery from the economic downturn has been slow, and house prices still remain amongst some of the lowest in Europe. This and the amazing all-year climate makes it an attractive place to buy property.
If you’ve done any research, you’ll be overwhelmed by the amount of houses for sale across Spain. Grand buildings set in the hillsides, stylish townhouses, and plenty of beautiful villas.
But when it comes to getting the most for your money, it’s more than just about the right location, amount of bedrooms or what colour it’s painted; it’s about getting the biggest and the best you can get: big bedrooms, big bathrooms. You can always paint it a different colour later.
Palma de Mallorca biggest houses are in the world’s best place to live
Officially voted the world’s best place to live by The Sunday Times, Palma de Mallorca won the accolade for many good reasons. But it wasn’t for having the biggest houses – that’s just a bonus.
The usual compromises don’t need to be an issue
What most people find is that the type of house they want isn’t in the location they want. With sprawling urbanisations eating up much of the open spaces in many of Spain’s popular areas, larger, more authentic properties are either out of their budget, have been sold or simply don’t exist.
But a common issue is distance: many newer builds being situated out of town and away from the lively markets and shops needed to buy groceries; away from some of the top-rate restaurants and tapas bars Spain is famous for.
Why you don’t need to compromise to live in the world’s best place
We already mentioned Palma de Mallorca biggest houses, but what makes them extra special is their overall island location and its beautiful capital, Palma. Well-serviced by frequent flights to all major cities in Europe and beyond, Palma also has regular ferries connecting it to the mainland, and a good road infrastructure.
The city and its old town has undergone extensive renovation in recent years, rightly re-claiming its own name, the Pearl of the Mediterranean.
Spain’s finest features all in one place, Lonely Planet call it a ‘stunner’
Museums, art galleries and an impressive amount of ornate buildings like the Paseo Maritimo and famous landmarks such as Bellver Castle offer a feast for the eyes; while Michelin Star restaurants and local tapas bars offer a feast for the tastebuds.
Names like Louis Vuitton are common site, but bargains can be found amongst handmade crafts and goods.
Island life can be whatever you want it to be; lounge on an open terrace overlooking the marina, sipping cocktails, or stretch out on your own grand terrace instead.
Of course, there’s a lot more to Palma de Mallorca’s than designer shops and a great capital city. There are lots of pretty towns and villages to discover, plus numerous festivals throughout the year, including at Christmas time and the colder months.
