Easter in the UK is usually a mixed bag of time off work, hyperactive children, threatening rainclouds and an overwhelming amount of chocolate. Though this combo does have a certain British charm, increasingly the temptation to spend the Easter break overseas is winning over the hearts of those looking for some springtime sunshine. And Spain is set to be the destination of choice in 2017.
According to the most recent data from beach holiday specialist On the Beach, Spain is the most popular destination for Brits during the Easter period this year. The beautiful island of Mallorca tops the list of holiday hotspots, with the sun-kissed province of Alicante also celebrating a place in the top five.
With Mallorca just a couple of hours’ flight from the UK, long weekends there are now easily achievable, allowing the island to be more than simply a summer destination. Long-term resident Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of leading Spanish homebuilder Taylor Wimpey España, observes,
“No longer considered a one season destination, Mallorca’s popularity throughout the year is growing. With such a short flight time, spending Easter there is easy for those living in the UK and with temperatures predicted to stay firmly in the 20s over the course of the long weekend, the Balearics are definitely a tempting prospect for a short coastal getaway.”
Easter in Mallorca is a big event, with processions, feasting and celebrations held across the island. The processions have their origins in the 16th century, when the Christian church set out to present the story of the Passion of the Christ to laypeople through street processions. While the religious element is still strong today, the festival atmosphere is one that those of all denominations can enjoy and the food that accompanies it is something that everyone should experience at least once!
But why experience Mallorca just once this year? Coastal properties on the island are becoming increasingly popular with holiday home owners and Taylor Wimpey España have just launched two new developments to the growing market. Both already attracting the attention of buyers who are keen to make Mallorca’s coastline a more regular feature of their lives.
The new Cala Vinyes Hills residential complex offers 15 exclusive and spacious three bedroom apartments and duplexes within a modern, gated community comprised of 5 independent buildings. From €380,000+VAT residents will benefit from private terraces, a communal swimming pool with landscaped gardens and private parking.
Cala Vinyes Hills is located in the prestigious area of Cala Vinyes, in the south west of Mallorca, just 15 minutes from the island’s vibrant capital city, Palma. The exclusive marinas Puerto Portals and Port Adriano are also close by, providing a wide variety of elegant bars and restaurants such as the most exclusive designer stores.
Less than a 30-minute drive from Palma’s international airport, Serenity is located next to the Santa Ponsa II Golf Club in Nova Santa Ponsa, one of the most exclusive and highly sought-after areas on the island. This new residential complex offers beautiful 3 bedroom homes from apartments to top floor penthouses.
All units benefit from private terraces, with those on the ground floor enjoying spacious garden areas which are also private. From €545,000 +VAT for an apartment and €790,000 +VAT for a penthouse, residents will enjoy the private use of two swimming pools, surrounded by a solarium area, and luscious communal gardens.
With Spanish Easter celebrations lasting for around 10 days, Mallorca and many other parts of Spain may already be in full celebratory mode. Why not leave the chocolate at home and hop on a plane to see for yourself?
