Despite temperatures across the UK equaling those on the sun kissed island of Mallorca last week, it seems many would still much rather spend the summer on its sandy shores in Balearic bliss. According to the most recent figures from travel’s leading performance marketing engine, Sojern, Mallorca is one of the top destinations searched for during Q2 of 2016.

The Global Travel Insights report analysed international travel behaviour and revealed that Palma de Mallorca was the third most searched for destination by holidaymakers in Europe. When asked to predict the trends for Q3 of this year, the report went on to highlight that Palma de Mallorca is expected to be the leading short haul destination.

With an increasing number of people falling in love with Mallorca and the Balearic islands this year, property sales in the region are also rising. The latest figures released by the National Institute of Statistics (INE) revealed the Balearics as the property location of choice, with YTD sales as of May 2016 increasing by 39% in comparison to the same period last year. This is the highest growth registered throughout Spain and is set to continue over the coming months.

Providing the idyllic setting for a holiday home, leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Espana, offer a beautiful selection of properties on Mallorca with something to suit the requirements of each individual. Their most recent addition to the landscape is the gorgeous Bahia Sant Pere. The development is a Mediterranean-inspired residential complex situated in the traditional north east coastal village of Colonia de Sant Pere, perfect for those wanting a more rural escape for their second home.

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Espana, is delighted that Mallorca is ranked such a highly sought after destination this summer and is excited for more to discover the beauty of the island. He comments,

“We have certainly experienced a growing interest in property on Mallorca as it becomes a prominent must-visit destination on the international stage. As popularity for the island continues to grow we are determined to provide an array of high quality properties in locations that reflect the best of Mallorca’s culture as well as its coastline.”

Less than an hour from Palma’s international airport, and only a short distance from the local fishing port and Mallorca’s golden coastline, Bahia Sant Pere is comprised of two and three bedroom apartments. From just €192,500 +VAT all apartments have two bathrooms, an open-plan kitchen with breakfast bar and the use of a private parking space. Each resident will have 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, being the perfect location to enjoy both 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.
