Cala d'Or lies on the south east coast of Mallorca and is full of coves and bays. It has retained the look and feel of a village and with the limitation on high rise buildings, one can catch very few of them in this place. During a holiday in Cala d'Or you have the opportunity to stay in some very quaint Cala d'Or holiday homes and enjoying the experience of a place so fresh and quiet that you may not want to return to the hustle and bustle of city life. Way back in the 1930s, Cala d'Or was discovered by a group of artists and since then it has emerged as a preferred holiday destination for a lot of people from Europe. Of course, Cala d'Or holiday homes did not exist in such large numbers then, but today they have become an investment and a destination unto themselves. This small harbour and village has become synonymous with beautiful sandy beaches and coves. The name of this resort- town has come from one of the coves in this region which is a very pretty cove with borders of pine trees.
Cala d'Or Holiday Villas - a quiet retreat by the sea
Choosing the best of Cala d'Or holiday rentals can put you within a stone’s throw of the Cala Llonga, the biggest of the coves in Cala d'Or. While Cala d'Or itself is a resort, and most of the Cala d'Or holiday homes stress their proximity to the beaches, the place gets split by the marina that has been created by the Cala Llonga. For a great time, walk through Cala Gran, the longest beach in Cala d'Or which can also take you through the demarcated pedestrian zone and enable you to indulge in a huge variety of shops and cuisine.
While staying in the Cala d'Or holiday homes, you can travel the region by using public buses which are a very convenient way to travel this resort. The beaches of Cala d'Or, like Cala Esmeralda, Cala des Pou, Cala des Homos Morts and Cala de sa Torre, to name just a few, are all accessible by bus. Cala de sa Torre has an ancient watchtower which has stood from the year 1626. Children have a park to themselves at Cala Gran and the museum of Es Forti at Cala des Pou. Cala d'Or holiday homes are available either on the beaches or some distance away as well.
