Magical Mallorca: The A-list Mediterranean Isle

Mallorca is always a firm favourite with celebrity holiday-home buyers.


When it comes to finding a place that provides beauty, tradition and tranquillity mixed with luxury living, beautiful people and pumping nightlife, the magnificent Spanish island of Mallorca wins every time.

Robert Graves first cemented Mallorca’s image as a fashionable holiday hub when he set up home there before the Second World War. He described the island as ‘paradise’, and ever since celebrities have followed in their droves, with many snapping up second homes away from the bright lights of the paparazzi.

Ignacio Osle, Sales and Marketing Director of leading house builder Taylor Wimpey de España, explains,

“Although Spain’s biggest island, Mallorca offers private beaches and secluded mountain retreats, affording enough comfort and concealment to continue enticing celebrities with many choosing to remain in the privacy of their villas and private grounds. But of course, there is always the opportunity to spot a star dining out in one of Mallorca’s finest restaurants or soaking up the sun on one of the beautiful blue flag beaches.”

The list of famous glitterati visitors extends far and wide with the likes of Paris Hilton, Sting, Joan Collins, The Beckhams, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow having been spotted holidaying on the island while residents who have succumb to Mallorca’s charms include Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, unofficial ambassadors for the island, who own a luxury house in S´Estaca, and Boris Becker who has a £10 million estate in Arta. Super model Claudia Schiffer has described Mallorca as “the most beautiful place” that is “idyllic, romantic and peaceful with an amazing coastline, wild mountain landscapes, friendly people and excellent food” and bought an entire mountain, building a £6 million paparazzi-proof lavish hilltop estate built in Camp de Mar.

Tourists who like to stay longer and visit more frequently, especially the rich and famous, have helped to keep the real estate industry thriving in Mallorca. The relatively stable climate of Mallorca along with the quality of life on the island has long been a popular place to invest in property and has kept property prices well above average.
