Secret Ibiza, away from the crowds…

Secret Ibiza, away from the crowds…


Ibiza has long been known for its party atmosphere and endless nightlife – but there’s another side to this beautiful island. A secret side where you can watch the sun set far from the crowds and enjoy a tranquil day on the beach before you join in the party. A land of wildlife and culture awaits…

Escape the crowds
Pine forests and juniper bushes cover 40% of the land. Ibiza is also known as the Pitiusas Islands, Greek for “abundant supply of pine trees”. It’s a great place to hike or cycle, and it’s one of the best ways to discover the true face of the island. In the north the area is more rural and less crowded. In the south there are plenty of beautiful hikes including at Salinas. Check at the tourist office for official hiking trails (it’s a small island but easy to get lost in the forests) and Ibiza Walking Association – www.ibizawalkingassociation.com.

See the sights on two wheels: there are plenty of cycle routes and it’s easy to hire a bike in the towns. Find more details on the Welcome to Ibiza website.

Ses Salines, named after the salt lakes, Ibiza’s natural park in the south of the island is a unique landscape. It’s home to many protected birds (more than 210 listed species) and amazing views, where you’ll get to see typical fishermen’s huts, spot flamingos and discover hidden beaches.

Ibiza and Formentera are home to the largest living organism on the planet – the sea grass meadows of Posidonia, a UNESCO site, protects the pristine turquoise waters of the coves, perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling.

Mystical Ibiza
The island has been a centre for spirituality since time immemorial. Legend has it that in the southwest of Ibiza, Es Vedrà a small rocky island, is where magnetic forces exert a mystical pull. Some say that there is a natural pyramid under the earth’s crust which radiates energy. In Sa Pedrera, hippies started to gather in the 1960s, drawn to the spiritual energy of the area. The beach is known for its stunning views and you’ll discover sculptures, created by artists and stone masons over several centuries.
Ibiza is a great place to recharge your batteries, take a yoga class or enjoy a pamper day – there are several excellent spas on the island.

Dalt Vila | UNESCO World heritage town…
Dalt Vila, which literally means upper town, has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1999. It is a fantastically preserved Mediterranean fortress where walking through the gates is like travelling back in time, with its cobbled streets, high stone walls, dramatic drawbridges, numerous churches and historical museums. Being Ibiza, it’s full of stylish modern Mediterranean restaurants and cool bars, so you can refuel as you walk up and down the endless streets, hills and stairs. The best of both worlds…

Best places for sunsets in Ibiza
Ibiza is famous for its beautiful sunsets and you’ve got a huge choice of places to witness the sight of rosy hued skies. One of the best is at the beach of Cala Benirras. You’re likely to find yourself alongside hundreds of other sunset fans, listening to drum music as the red ball dips below the horizon, it’s truly magical. Es Vedra (above) is also a fabulous place to watch the sun go down.
And if you want to watch the sunset in the lap of luxury, head to the 2 Michelin Star Edén Restaurante where you’ll discover an unbeatable view of the sunset towards Hacienda Na Xamena.

Ibiza – the island of dreams

Ibiza – the island of dreams

Ibiza is a favourite year-round destination for all ages thanks to its wonderfully sunny weather and so much to see and do.
Long known for its nightlife and musical events, the “White Isle” as it’s known, is full of surprises and charm. A world heritage site, beaches, caves to explore, the most glorious sunsets, great food, architecture, fashion, hiking, art, shopping, sports and culture make for an intoxicating holiday.


Best beaches on Ibiza
There are more than 56 beaches to cater for all tastes and with 300 days of sunshine a year – relaxing on the beach, taking a refreshing dip and water sports activities take centre stage here.
Sandy beaches surrounded by outstandingly beautiful nature sites, dramatic cliffs, tiny islands, secret coves and crystal clear turquoise waters, perfect for snorkelling and diving – it’s a beach lovers paradise. Here are just a few must-see beaches:
Cala Conta is one of the most beautiful beaches in Ibiza and very popular, though if you go to the naturist beach part, there are less crowds. Beautiful views, shallow waters and a great atmosphere make this a favourite with locals and visitors alike.
Cala Xarraca is a sheltered beach and if you’re keen on snorkelling this is the ideal place to don your mask. You can also get a free facial here – there are naturally-occurring mud baths to the right of the main beach!
Benirràs in the far north isn’t the easiest beach to reach, but it’s great for relaxing and is the perfect place to witness a glorious sunset to the sound of drum music, especially on Sundays. Browse the hippie market and shop for stylish and bohemian clothes and accessories.
Ibiza Spotlight has an excellent list of beaches on Ibiza.


Excellent Restaurants
Ibiza has become as well known for its cuisine as for its clubbing. There are world class restaurants as well as plenty of rustic Fincas for an authentic local taste.
Sa Punta is a classy, cosmopolitan restaurant on the bay of Talamanca with dazzling sea-views over Ibiza Town and the marina. Delicious international cuisine and fine dining in beautiful surroundings.
For a romantic meal and fabulous sunset views, Sa Capella restaurant near San Antonio, in a former church offers traditional and modern dining where fresh food is prepared on a gigantic grill.
If you really want to push the boat out then Sublimotion at the Hard Rock Hotel is the world’s most expensive restaurant. Michelin-starred Chef Paco Roncero and his team offer a “three-hour, multi-sensory experience” which includes 20 courses and immersive technology. Expect to pay around 1700 euros – per person.


Great high end beach bars
At night, the beach bars come into their own. Most have DJs and start to get busy from mid afternoon though they really get going from around 6pm onwards. Here’s our pick of some of the best sunset cafés:
Beach restaurant Sunset Ashram at Benirràs is a bohemian institution on the island. Book in advance though as its very popular and if you turn up without a reservation, you’re likely to be disappointed.
Blue Marlin is full on VIP and the place to go if you’re rich and famous. A lounger will set you back around €100. In the evening dance the night away, DJ Pete Tong is a favourite here, and gaze at the private yachts in the bay.


Ibiza’s night clubs
Ibiza is world famous for its clubs. In the summer months, there’s a music festival every night of the week. Book your tickets in advance (they can sell out fast) and to avoid queues, you can get them at most ATMs on the island.
Ushuaïa is one of the best known clubs on Ibiza. This outdoor club claims to have the most famous stage in the island and is super stylish with four-poster beds on the beach where you can enjoy champagne or dine on fresh lobster.
Privilege is the biggest club in the world and has established a reputation for the grandiose and spectacular. Watch the dawn come up from the glass encased Vista Club annex.
O Beach Ibiza is known for its stylish, decadent daytime pool parties. Expect to hear Champagne corks pop around the VIP pool beds…
Boat parties, clubs, beach parties – this is club heaven.

Guide to getting married in the Algarve, Portugal

Guide to getting married in the Algarve, Portugal

Blue skies, sunshine, waves lapping the beach, chilled Portuguese wine, whitewashed villages and lively seaside towns – there’s lots to love in Portugal, especially if you’re in love too…
If you dream of holding your perfect wedding in Portugal, here’s what you need to know.
How to get married in Portugal if you’re British
Probably the easiest way to organise your perfect wedding day in Portugal is with the help of a local and professional wedding planner. Search the internet and you’ll find plenty of ideas to help you find a planner who’s right for you.
They’ll explain the rules which need to be met for your wedding – whether you opt for a civil or religious ceremony. Of course you can also have a celebration ceremony, also known as a partnership celebration ceremony, which though not legally binding, is a wonderful way to celebrate your partnership with the words you choose to say, where you wish and to share your love in a way that’s special to you.
“Weddings in the Algarve are 99% outdoors” says Inês Longuiero at Dream Day Wedding Planners. “With a beautifully cooked buffet featuring a giant Cataplana, a Portuguese seafood dish and paella cooked by a chef in front of the guests – it’s unforgettable”.
Wedding Ceremonies in Portugal

You’ll need ID (valid passport), birth certificates and a certificate of no impediment which is a legal document confirming you are both free to marry. You might also need further paperwork, if you’re divorced or widowed.
All documents must be translated into Portuguese by a sworn translator and authenticated locally.
You may also need a translator for the ceremony.
If you wish to have a Catholic church ceremony, further documentation from your priest is needed.
Fees – the amount varies from year to year so check beforehand.
We recommend you check details and requirements with the Portuguese Embassy in the UK, there is a consulate in London and Manchester.
Book the most perfect accommodation for your wedding celebration in the Algarve

“The Algarve has 200km of coastline and some of the best and most beautiful beaches in the entire world” says Inês. “But if you want to get married on the beach, it can get crowded in summer so we like to recommend places for a sunset ceremony that are a bit off the beaten track like the clifftop location at Senhora da Rocha (known as the “Lady of the Rock”).
Once you decide on your wedding plans in the Algarve, just take a look at our gorgeous villas to find the most beautiful accommodation available.
If you’re looking to host friends and family, you’ll find we have plenty of truly stunning holiday homes that are suitable for large groups, so special they will definitely make memories to cherish. It’s easy to organise a spa pamper session, round of golf, cocktails under the stars, pool party, beach barbecues and romantic dinners al fresco and the Algarve has a huge choice of things to do.
Quinto do Lago, the prestigious holiday resort in the Algarve is one of the most fabulous places for a wedding celebration. They have an onsite wedding planning team to help you organise your perfect day. With a backdrop of stunning sandy beaches, wonderful countryside, manicured golf courses, scenic lakes and several restaurants, not to mention the simply sensational villas that we have in the Quinta do Lago resort – it’s a great place to get married.

Flights from the UK to Faro 2019

Faro is the gateway to the Algarve. With year-round sunshine, miles of beautiful sandy beaches and flower-decked and pretty whitewashed villages, it’s easy to see why the Algarve is so popular.

Easter Getaway ideas for the Algarve, Southern France and Marbella

Easter Getaway ideas for the Algarve, Southern France and Marbella
Mar blog 3
By mid-April, spring is well under way and in Portugal, Spain and the south of France, our villas are basking in the sun – and you could be too! With Easter just around the corner, here are some of our top tips for perfect, first class getaways…
Luxurious villas in the sun
We have lots of exquisite villas in some of the most gorgeous holiday destinations, from the Algarve, southern France and the Loire Valley, Spain and Ibiza. All of our villas have pools, maid service and are luxuriously decorated. They’re hand-picked and located in the most idyllic settings. When you take a holiday at a Palmer & Parker villa, you know you’re getting the best there is.
Easter in the Algarve
Mar blog 1
For many people, spring is the best time to visit this lovely part of Portugal. The almond trees are in blossom, the delicate scented flowers creating a burst of colour and scent. Joined by the velvety fragrance of orange blossom, it definitely invokes a feeling of happiness that the winter is well and truly over.
Deep blue skies, lush vineyards, the golden sands of the beaches and whitewashed buildings of villages reflect the warm sun. Not too hot to cycle or hike, it’s the ideal time to take up a sport and there’s lots of choice in the Algarve including the new The Campus state of the art multi sports complex at Quinta do Lago. With temperatures around 20-25˚C, it’s also wonderful weather for dining al fresco.
It’s a relatively sleepy time of the year before the tourist crowds arrive but there’s still lots going on and at Easter there’s loads to do, from flower festivals to boat trips and of course shops filled with delicious chocolate and sugared almonds.

Easter in southern France

les-calanques-marseille

By April, the south of France has warmed up considerably. Vineyards are flourishing, the beaches are enticing, the countryside is filled with the scent of blossom from cherry, almond, lemon and orange trees.
Shops and patisseries are filled with drool-worthy sweet things like edible works of art. Chocolate bells are popular – in France chocolate is bought not by the Easter Bunny – but by flying bells! Church Bells are not rung in France between Good Friday and Easter Sunday as a mark of respect for the death of Jesus. Children are told, the bells have gone to Rome and return bearing chocolate.
Visit the south of France before the crowds to discover the authentic charm of Provence and the French Riviera. The markets are bustling, restaurants and cafés that closed for the winter now tempt you to while away an hour or two simply enjoying the atmosphere whist you watch the world go by and soak up some rays. The average temperature is usually between 16-20˚C in April and gets progressively warmer through the month.
If we’ve inspired you to discover the gorgeous south of France for yourself, check out our holiday homes in France from chateaux to villas…
Easter in Marbella
Mar Blog 2
In Spain, Marbella comes to life in Spring but it’s a tranquil time of the year before the summer crowds arrive to enjoy some of the finest beaches and weather in Europe.
As trees and flowers bloom, the sun starts to heat up the sand and beachside restaurants become vibrant and buzzing with visitors.
This is the perfect time to visit for golf, hiking, tennis and all manner of activities including boat trips round the port. If you’re after a more relaxing break, why not enjoy a picnic on the beach or a drive into the mountains to admire the sun baked houses of Andalusian villages such as Casares and Gaucin or the village of Benahavis, which is truly charming but also a gastronomic paradise.
Easter brings parades galore to the area. Holy images are carried through the streets, sometimes followed by exuberant crowds, other times powerfully sombre. Even tiny villages hold parades and it’s a great way to experience the authentic way of life in this popular holiday destination.
Shops close on national holidays and everyone eats out to enjoy the day off, so book in advance if you have a favourite restaurant in mind and enjoy great Spanish tapas. With more than 1,100 restaurants to choose from in the Marbella area, there’s room for all and a whole lot of choice.
Have we whetted your appetite for Marbella? Check out our absolutely stunning villas in Marbella.
Spring and Easter are just around the corner and there are lots of flights available for a last minute break. We love to help make your holiday dreams come true….

Algarve Beach takes top spot in Trip Advisor Beach Awards

Algarve Beach takes top spot in Trip Advisor Beach Awards

The 2019 ‘Top beaches in the world’ table as voted for by followers of Trip Advisor revealed that Falesia Beach is the number one beach in the Algarve. It’s also in the top 12 beaches world wide and the third best beach in Europe.

Praia da Falesia is a long, long strip of golden sand backed by stunning red cliffs, topped with dark green pine trees which contrast beautifully with the blue sky and turquoise waters of the Atlantic. Its exceptional beauty isn’t marred by holiday apartments but has been kept in its natural state.

There are miles and miles of beach to enjoy, stretching from Vilamoura in the east all the way to Olhos de Água (near Albufeira) in the west. Praia da Falésia actually means Beach of Cliffs and the startling beauty of these monumental, colourful formations is astounding.

Relax on the soft silky sand and take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear water. Or you could walk along the beach with the waves lapping your feet, it takes around two hours to do the whole 6km. Or perhaps you prefer to take the hiking trail from the top of the cliffs from where the views are spectacular (only do this on dry days, when it rains the trail can get slippery).

A tale of two beaches

Alfamar beach on the eastern side towards Vilamoura is enormous with shallow waters. It’s an especially good beach for families with kids. You can do lots of water sports here, from surfing to diving and paragliding. Vilamoura is a stylish resort town with lots of facilities and a marina complex.  And, there are some great bars and restaurants there – for a fun beach atmosphere Beach Club, rua da Falesia, is super…

The cliffs are lower here but as you make your way west towards Albufeira the cliffs get higher and the beach gets narrower. Parts of the beach are very secluded, perfect for a tranquil day of swimming and relaxing.

A former fishing village, Albufeira is now a thriving tourist destination with lots of shops, bars, restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, and of course, a lovely sandy beach…

Book your villa near Portugal’s No. 1 beach: We have some truly gorgeous, luxurious villas near the beautiful Praia de Falesia beach, search our villas in Vilamoura here, and villas in Albufeira here – we aim to help make your holiday truly special…

Villa Chloe in Antibes, southern France, Villa of the Month

Villa Chloe in Antibes, southern France, Villa of the Month

chloe 1

Perched on a hill, just below the lighthouse on the peninsula of Cap d’Antibes, Villa Chloe is exceptional.

With stunning sea views from the house and gardens, you can easily walk to the sandy beaches of Salis (Blue Flag) with its pretty port from the villa. Plage de Garoupe is also within walking distance. It’s one of the prettiest beaches in the area with silky-soft white sands and crystal clear waters. Once a favourite with luminaries such as Ernest Hemingway and Picasso, it’s very exclusive and there are some excellent restaurants and bars there.

Quintessential French Riviera charm

 chloe 3

The villa has three levels. On the first floor it is all open plan with plenty of light and sea views. The living room has French windows leading out to the pool area. The dining area has steps that lead up to the large kitchen which is fully equipped with an American style fridge freezer and top range facilities.

chloe 2

There are five double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms. One has its own dressing room and two open out onto the terrace, with gorgeous views.

In the garden make the most of the glorious weather with the large dining and barbecue area. The loungers round the pool are so tempting.

There is air conditioning throughout the villa plus Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stereo.

Must-sees in Antibes

Antibes market Pic 4

If you can bear to tear yourself away from this gorgeous holiday home and those beautiful beaches, head to the town to discover its charms.

Situated within the old Grimaldi castle on the waterfront is a museum dedicated to Picasso. All the artwork is of the local area, which gives you a fascinating perspective, seen through the eyes of Picasso. There are fantastic sculptures on the outdoor balcony that overlooks the sea.

Antibes market is a great place to shop for supplies to create a wonderful feast to enjoy at the villa. You will find a terrific selection of fresh local produce from scrumptious cheeses and locally grown olives, fish and meat, herbs and spices. You can also get a mouth-watering truffle paste to spread on a warm fresh baguette bought from the bakery at the front of the market. There is one stall devoted solely to tomatoes! It’s a great place for people watching too.

Chapelle de la Garoupe is in an amazing place to visit, its nave is full of votive offerings essentially from sailors. You can walk there from the villa but make sure you wear the right shoes, it’s a bit of a climb. This listed historic monument has recently been restored and from here, you have a wonderful panorama over the bay. It’s the perfect place to see the sun set, you’ll experience one of those wow moments.

Why we love Villa Chloe:

Truly stunning views of the Riveria

Pool that cries out to be lounged around – and a rather irresistible hammock
