With the view of the range you will see the lovely succession of spattered roofs, of sights where history and modernity unite with the green and the Mediterranean in perfect harmony. Even though the first impression of the city may seem very small the possibilities that Palma offers make it seem as if it were a city ten times bigger. There are many points of interest to visit, here are some that you should not miss out on:
1) The Cathedral (built between XIV and XIX)
2 La Almudaina (Royal Palace)
3 La Lonja (Beautiful Art Museum)
4) Consulado del Mar (Balear Government

6) Plaza de Cort (city hall XCII century)
7) Arab Baths

Super property in a Great Location, Angela and Santi are Perfect hosts,made us most Welcome,Thankyou
This apartment is complete, comfortable and has every possible amenity.The location is central yet quiet, and lots to discover we hired bikes and had great fun in this Fabulous City.
Angela and Santi took care to ensure we felt welcome and were there to help us if required.
Perfect Location, Great Apartment & Lovely Host!
My husband & I loved Angela & Santi's home. Santi met us in person as to explain everything in the apartment and suggested restaurants in the area as we arrived late on a Sunday night. Santi checked in throughout our stay to see if we needed anything, which was very much appreciated. The apartment has everything you need and is in a quiet part of the Old Town, we would definitely recommend!
Lovely apartment in a great location
This was the perfect accommodation for a couple wanting a peaceful base from which to explore the attractions of Palma. The apartment was very smart, modern but with Old Town character and had everything we needed including a very well designed kitchen. Would definitely stay there again if we visit Palma in the future.
This was our second stay at the apartment and again everything was perfect. We travel quite often and this has to be one of the best equipped apartments that we have stayed at. The location is excellent with lots of great cafes, restaurants and shopping in walking distance. No car is necessary and you can take a lovely stroll along the Cathedral with a nice view of the Med. Angela and Santi were great hosts and even helped us out by getting us some food necessities as we arrived on a Sunday.
Perfectly located apartment for two
The apartment is perfectly located within the Old Town walls, 5 mins walk to the beach. It's easy to walk to the cathedral (recommended) and all of the streets are old and interesting and very beautiful.
When we arrived we discovered from the owner that the tap water is not suitable to drink so we had to walk for approx 10 mins to reach the supermarket to get some bottles - it would have been great if there had been a bottle in the fridge ready for us, especially as it was incredibly hot when we arrived!
The apartment was very comfortable for two people, the air conditioning was very much appreciated, the furniture was comfy, the shower was amazing, and the kitchen was very well equipped (though we discovered we are not fans of Spanish tea-bags!).
This was a great base for exploring the city from and really allowed us to just relax and enjoy our week in the sun. Because the apartment is on the second floor and the stairs are pretty steep this might not be best suited to couples with very young children and buggies to deal with.
Thanks Angela and Santi for a great place!

Angela and Santi made us fell so welcome and could not have been more helpful.
