Mallorca for Easter: villas from just £400

Es Bosquet

The ‘any-day-arrival, any-length-of-stay’ villa company Freelance Holidays is highlighting Easter availability on Mallorca, ideal for matching with flights from 20 UK and Irish airports into Palma.

“Easter is a wonderful time to visit,” says managing director Paul Fogg, “with every town holding colourful religious parades. In Pollenca, while Good Friday’s dramatic crucifixion procession may not be to everyone’s taste, the Easter Sunday ‘Encontre’ procession is a great spectacle.

“It’s a tempting swap: Britain’s dodgy weather for sunny days up to 18 degrees C, and hot cross buns for Mallorcan robiols, a pumpkin-jam-filled pastry,” says Paul.

Freelance Holidays’ villas on the island include newly-featured Es Bosquet, a rural retreat with wonderful views over the bay of Pollenca in the rugged north of the island.  Completely renovated for this season, almost everything is on one level, including three double/twin bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open-plan living and dining space.  There’s a superb covered terrace overlooking the private pool set into the lawn, the whole surrounded by 1,000 hectares of grounds including an almond orchard. 

Despite its rural tranquillity, Es Bosquet is  less  than 15 minutes’  drive (10 kilometres) from the excellent facilities of Pollenca  and even less from the market town of Sa Pobla with its supermarkets, cafes and restaurants.  Five nights over Easter cost just £400 in total for up to six people, excluding car hire and flights, with a week at £560.

In the heart of Puerto Pollenca, the smart Apartment de Placa is also new.  It is only two minutes’ walk to the beach, and takes about the same time – in the building’s lift – to reach the rooftop swimming pool shared with other luxury apartments in the three-storey building.  Double-glazed throughout, the apartment sleeps up to six and costs from £425 for five nights during the Easter holidays, or from £595 for a week.

Other available properties are well-placed for festivities in Alcudia, Campanet or Santanyi.
