Opinions are firmly divided when it comes to being on a boat, but everyone who visits Mallorca will agree with writer Roddy Doyle, that when ‘on an island what matters is how you stand to the sea.’ The holiday villa rental in Puerto Portals – Villa Sol y Mar translates appropriately to ‘villa of land and sea’ and the location in the southwest of Mallorca will thrill sailors and land lubbers alike.
Rental villa location
Villa Sol y Mar hangs on a cliff above a swath of rocky coast near Puerto Portals Marina in the southwest of Mallorca. The region is know for attracting Europe’s jet-set and international celebrities for good reason; pristine beaches, glamorous restaurants, and family fun in turquoise waters are key ingredients to a perfect holiday. Add amazing sports activities, Spanish hospitality and Mallorca’s historic villages, and you have what great memories are made of. Chance of Rain? Not likely here. But bring a hat! The sun shines 300 days a year in Mallorca.
Overview of the villa
Floating above the sea, Villa Sol y Mar is tucked into a green hillside in one of Mallorca’s most exclusive areas.

The kitchen is state of the art, and comes with everything you need, including a private chef preparing local dishes. If you want to unplug, there is as much outdoor living space as indoors.
