      Its easy-going vibe, year-round sun, beautiful beaches and dramatic landscape make Mallorca the ideal place for leisurely trips to the beach, into the mountains and up into its unique hillside towns.

     When you want to indulge in some glam, head into Mallorca’s stylish capital, Palma, for luxury shops, boutiques, cafes, bars and clubs.

     For culture, there are historic ruins to be found all over the island leftover from its Roman, Moorish and Carthaginian rulers. From castles, to churches, period architecture and monasteries, Mallorca’s hilltops and towns are littered with fascinating historic relics.

      Amongst Mallorca’s ruins you’ll find spectacular vistas across the limestone mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana and the Serres de Llevant. Dramatic cliffs and hilltops covered in almond, olive and carob trees, give way to vineyards, coastal roads and picturesque coastline below.

      As famous for its hillside panoramas as its stunning beaches,dazzling luxury villas, glam beach clubs and hideaway coves, Mallorca offers something for everyone.

     From watersports and swimming, to rock climbing, cycling, hiking, coasteering, wine tours, top golf courses, water parks, ziplining, family nature walks, museums, art galleries, shopping, top restaurants and pulsating nightclubs, on the days when you want to get busy, Mallorca has plenty of things to do.

     And if you’re wondering where Majorca fits in, Majorca is the English pronunciation for Mallorca. Once used to avoid confusion over the Spanish pronunciation of double l, today, the island is commonly known by its Spanish pronunciation of Mallorca.

When is the best time to visit Mallorca?

Mallorca is a popular holiday destination for most of the year so you can expect summer to be busy. However, Mallorca is favoured for its relaxing vibe so it is still possible to find quiet places to stay during the height of summer.

If you want to avoid the summer crowds but still get the best of the warm Mediterranean weather, travel between May and June or in September for great weather and a quieter stay.

Our Story

In 2005, John Paul Donnelly, began his luxury villa journey. He spent three years building resorts and holiday apartments in Alanya, Turkey, along with his brother, Joe. The concept was to create the most luxurious villas on the Turkish coastline and provide clients, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to enjoy exclusive holidays together.

By 2008, after the successful development of 3 resorts, JP had well and truly fallen into the world of villa rentals. With a portfolio of 6 villas and a desire to explore new places, he decided it was time to take the villa rental business outside of Turkey. He wanted to give his clients access to beautiful holiday rentals in destinations across the globe.

The expanding villa rental company was rebranded in 2011 to 5 Star Villa Holidays, and today 5 Star Villa Holidays offers over 10,000 luxury villas around the world.

JP and his partner, Helena are currently travelling the globe, devoted to hand selecting the best villas and property management companies, and giving them their stamp of approval! 5 Star Villa Holidays' ambition goes beyond being an ordinary holiday rental company. It is a marketplace for luxurious and exclusive villas around the world.
