A stunning, luxury apartment right in the heart of Palma centre
The Apollo apartment offers you that little bit extra for your holiday in Palma city. The location is excellent and the terrace and services provided make this an ideal choice for working holidays as well as stylish and relaxing city breaks.
The Area Surrounding the Apartment
The apartment is located in a renovated building on one of the better-known streets in the centre of Palma. There are plenty of interesting restaurants and bars to choose from in the area and you are very near tourist attractions such as the marvellous cathedral and La Lonja.
The Apollo apartment is located on the third floor in the building, but there is a lift for those that would rather not run up and down stairs during their holidays! This is something of a luxury in the centre of Palma where most of the apartment buildings have stairwells that are too narrow to allow for the installation of a lift.
The apartment has been furnished with style and functionality as top priorities. The bathroom is sleek and fully equipped, much like the two double bedrooms.
It is an open plan and modern apartment with a top-of-the-line kitchen and a living room equipped with a flat-screen TV, DVD and ethernet internet access.
Having internet access makes it possible for guests to stay in contact with family in an easy way while being away and also makes this apartment ideal for those that have to take their business with them on holiday or are actually visiting Palma for business reasons.
Guest number five sleeps in a lounge atelier.
Saving the best for last, the amazing terrace with sofas and pillows and stunning views of Palma makes this a one-of-a-kind apartment!
The most important street in Palma is “El Passeig des Born”; it is a commercial street with bars, shops and restaurants and serves as a meeting place for the locals. This is where you find the famous “Bar Bosh” which serves as a meeting point for everyone in Palma.
In the old part known as the Casco Antiguo around the Passeig des Born you can find pubs and bars with a bohemian atmosphere near the cathedral. In the area around the sea promenade bordering the La Lonja area you can find more expensive, elegant bars and restaurants.
The Passeig des Born leads down to the Cathedral La Seu and the king’s palace and the marina and the sea. From the Passeig des Born, looking towards the sea, you have the La Lonja area on the right. The whole area to the right of the Passeig des Born is a maze full of good tapas bars, restaurants, squares and shops.
A stroll through the old part which is full of mansions from the 17th-19th centuries as well as a number of churches is very pleasant.
The “Plaça Mayor” is another focal point of the city. This is the central square with street artists performing where you can find a number of restaurants and bars as well as the beginning of two of the most important shopping streets in Palma, the C/San Miquel and the C/Sindicat. These two streets contain all the normal high-street brands as well as local produce and other highlights such as one of the contemporary arts museums.
The Plaça Mayor is located north of the Passeig des Born and this is also where you can find the municipal theatre in Palma, antique shops and fresh flowers along the La Rambla of Palma.
The Rambla and “Avenida Jaume III” are both important commercial streets as well. The Jaume III sports many of the brand name stores and the Ramblas is the place to go if you are looking for fresh flowers or wanting to extend your old coin collection… This lovely stroll has something for everyone!
The Avenida Jaume III stretches out from the top of the Passeig des Born towards the Passeig de Mallorca and Santa Catalina to the left. It is a very famous street where one of the two Corte Inglés stores is located. The other one is located on one of the Avenidas nearer Plaça Espanya,
The Plaça Espanya and la Rambla are connected by the C/Oms, another famous shopping street in the centre of Palma. This street is lined by shops as well as bars and serves as a shortcut from the shopping areas to the transportation centre on Plaça Espanya.
The Casco Antiguo, the Passeig des Born and the impressive cathedral, this is the place to be for the ultimate Mallorca shopping experience. Within the confines of the old ring road referred to as “Avenidas” there is enough shopping to last you at least a couple of weeks, should you wish. The area around the Passeig des Born and Jaume III boasts a variety of designer shops and the area around Plaça Mayor, C/San Miquel and C/Sindicat contains the high street shops and so much more. Enjoy!
Friendly Rentals can offer you apartments that are located within a stone’s throw of the Passeig des Born. You will not be able to find apartments more centrally located in Palma! You will have the shopping area just around the corner and the restaurant area within a very easy 5-minutes’ stroll from your front door. The same goes for the apartments available for rent near the Plaça Mayor that are right in the centre of things and still near the transport hub on Plaça Espanya which makes it easy to arrive by bus or to explore more of the island even if you do not decide to rent a car during your visit.
