    • What should I pack for my holiday?

      When it comes to packing for your holiday, we’ve got a handy guide to make sure you have everything you need for your getaway. Each of our villas are unique and the property description on the villa page should give you all the information you need such as whether there’s a hairdryer at the villa.

      Bedroom linen

      All bedroom linen is provided including covers and pillowcases, unless otherwise on rare occasions it is stated in the property description. Cot linen is not provided so if you need it, please do make sure you pack your own.


      Bathroom towels are provided at the villa. There is usually one bath towel and one hand towel per person. You will need to take your own pool/beach towels as these are not provided as standard, although some villas do provide them. If this is the case, it will be mentioned in the property description.


      A hairdryer isn’t provided as standard at our villas, but some will have one available to use. Please check the property description to see whether there is one available at your villa.

      Travel adaptor plugs

      Your villa will be fitted with local plug sockets so you will need to take travel adaptors with you to use any appliances you’ll be taking with you.

      Iron and Ironing Board

      As standard, the vast majority of our properties have an iron and ironing board you can use whilst you’re staying there.


      Winter sun

      If you’re jetting off for some winter sun, here’s some handy tips on things you might want to take. Whilst the weather will usually be warm during the day, it can get a little chilly at night so we advise you to pack a few extra items, just in case!

      • Shoes and socks (for evening ambles)
      • An extra layer such as fleece, cardigan or jumper
      • Snuggly slippers – a necessary home comfort!
      • Warm pyjamas
      • A jacket or rain coat
      • Warmer trousers for alfresco evenings
      • An umbrella – just in case!

    • What is the Balearics Eco-Tax?

      The Balearics Eco-Tax or Sustainable Tourism Tax, as it is also known as, is a government-approved levy that applies to both foreign visitors and locals who stay in tourist accommodation in Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza. The tax was imposed on 1st July 2016 to keep the islands in tip top condition, funding sustainable tourism projects to preserve them for future generations.

      Unfortunately, it does mean there is a tiny bit extra to pay to holiday to these beautiful destinations, but it is all for a good cause. Enabling people to return to the Balearics and enjoy all that these wonderful islands have to offer.

      The cost of the Eco-Tax varies depending on what accommodation you are staying in. However, for those of you who’ve already booked or are looking to book your holiday, we calculate this for you and include it in the total cost of your holiday. You can now see the Eco-Tax breakdown when searching for your villa holiday. Keep an eye out for the (?) symbol and all will be revealed when you hover over it or touch it if using a mobile or tablet.

      We’ve taken the hassle out of paying it when you get there, so you can enjoy your holiday right from the off.

    • Are your villas pet-friendly?

      We are sorry, but we don’t operate a pet-friendly villa programme at this time. None of our villa properties allow pets to be accompanied as part of the holiday booking.
