Travel Challenge: A peak season holiday in Mallorca
Saturday 04 July 2009
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specified holiday. Today: a week's break for a family of four in Mallorca, departing on 8 August.
£1,652: Siesta Apartments, Alcudia. Includes flights from Gatwick to Palma, transfers and accommodation in a self-catering family studio. "This complex is especially popular with families," says Richard Calvert of Airtours.
"It offers a wealth of activities and entertainment on site, including our free club – Kids World – for six days," (0844 871 6636; airtours.co.uk ).
£1,839: Finca Peric, Pollença. Includes self-catering accommodation, maid service and a starter pack; travel to Mallorca is not included. "Finca Peric is a delightful two-bedroom country cottage with a private pool. It's spot-on for families seeking an authentic rural retreat, but is just a short drive to beaches and amenities," says Jim Thomas at Mallorca Farmhouses. (0845 800 8080; mallorca.co.uk )
£2,952: Villa C'an Joan, Pollença. Includes flights from Gatwick, self-catering accommodation and a week's car hire. "C'an Joan is located in the countryside, yet only a few minutes' drive to the resort of Pollença which has a good selection of restaurants. The villa has a good-sized swimming pool and open terraces from which to enjoy the views – an ideal property for a small family," says Suzanne Owen of Meon Villas. (0800 783 1410; meonvillas.co.uk )
