Illetas, a residential area which combines city life with impressive scenery

Illetas, an area very close to Palma and the gateway to the municipality of Calvià, gets its name from its famous beach.  Spacious multilevel apartments, flats and large houses form this unique neighbourhood which is right next to the Marivent Palace.

Right next to Cas Catalá and Portals Nous, this neighbourhood has grown due to the demand for properties in the area and to its fantastic natural environment just 15 minutes from the city centre. The sparkling turquoise blue waters lap gently at the beaches and coves of Illetas and make this city located beach the most popular for visitors to Palma.

Despite the numerous visitors to this idyllic beach during the summer months, this area just outside Palma conveys a feeling of absolute calm. The air is filled with the unmistakeable aroma of sea salt, and this has become one more aspect which adds charm to the properties in the area.

In Illetas you will find beautifl properties with sea views. Incomparable scenery in an area surrounded by rocky cliff formations which make it absolutely unique.

Pollentia Properties offers you the most suitable properties for your lifestyle in Illetas.

 

Unique scenery and an international community

The best-known city beaches close to Palma are in Illetas.  Turquoise blue waters, large beaches with silver sand and rocky cliff formations, make this beautiful area the favourite place for thousands of people to spend their free time.

There are two yacht marinas just a few minutes from the neighbourhood, Puerto de Calanova and Puerto Portals.  Both add an air of exclusivity to the residential area, closely linked to maritime activities.

Illetas has a great number of monumental and emblematic features. It is very close to Cala Mayor and Cas Catalá and is surrounded by famous places full of charm.  One of them, the Palacio de Marivent, summer residence of the Royal Family, is well known to everybody in Mallorca.

This also applies to the exclusive Hotel Maricel.  Built in the 50s, this historic hotel is one of the most elegant on the island. Its impressive sea views, the pool located right over the Mediterranean, the stately buildings clad in Mallorca stone and with incredibly high finishes make this an incomparable luxurious establishment. Furthermore, the Maricel has a three-floor spa with a pool partially outdoor and partially indoor.

The cuisine served in the hotel is the most outstanding in the area. The cutting-edge restaurant is top of the range and for many years has been named for the “best breakfast in the world”. This gastronomic experience takes three hours and comprises 11 courses, all made with top quality products and spectacular flavours.

The same as in the whole of Calviá, the environment is multicultural and dynamic.  Thousands of foreigners, the majority from England and Germany, have decided to buy a house and come to live on the island. The area of Illetas, well known to residents from overseas, is one the most international areas due to its stunning location.

All establishments have multilingual staff, there are many international schools and a growing overseas community living the Mediterranean dream.  Illetas is an area where buying a property means a better quality of life and being able to benefit from living in a mild environment, whether you intend to stay to live, or the property is just an investment.

 

Spacious apartments on the beachfront

Along the winding streets in the neighbourhood that lead to the beach there are numerous buildings used as homes.  Whether you want to establish your permanent residence here or have a second home, you will be very fortunate to be able to come to live in this area.

The high level of demand means that owners often decide to buy an apartment in this desirable area with a view to renting it out.  Owning an apartment on the beachfront suitable to rent out puts the owner in an advantageous position because tenants will always be available. Furthermore, property prices in areas like this one are always higher than in the city so return on the initial price paid tends to be higher, too.

Houses in Illetas usually have large windows so they are full of light and ideal for spending time at home. Some of them are even split level in exclusive buildings overlooking the Bay with many rooms, community pools, hall porters and 24-hour security systems.  This area is very attractive for family life on account of the beautiful homes and their proximity to attractive outdoor spaces.
