Majorca: Family Holidays or Celebrity Haven?

Majorca: Family Holidays or Celebrity Haven?

When celebrities can go anywhere in the world on holiday, you realise that Majorca family holidays must be special in order to keep them coming back. In fact, Majorca is so well thought of by celebrities that many have second homes on the island so that they can return again and again.

Whilst many celebrities have set up home there, Patsy Kensit prefers to return to the island for her Majorca family holidays every year. Patsy has two children, James and Lennon, and whilst she lists her favourite things in Majorca as the sweeping cliffs, greenery, food and sunshine, her children are said to be huge fans of the island’s waterparks. Patsy admits that she becomes

really anti-social on holiday and prefers to sit around the pool talking to nobody. If Patsy did decide to make friends on holiday, she could find herself going for dinner with Kerry Katona, another fan of Majorca family holidays.

Like many British holidaymakers, Kerry likes Majorca because she knows she can get all her creature comforts whilst on holiday. Okay, it may not have an Iceland but Kerry loves the fact that she can eat English food whilst on her holiday and that she doesn’t need to get her four children used to exotic foods.

As well as the waterparks, Majorca offers plenty of family attractions from the Pirates Adventure Park in Palma to the ethereal Caves of Drach. The Caves of Drach are a favourite destination with Pauline Quirke, the actress most famous for playing the role of Sharon Theodopolopoudos in the classic British sitcom “Birds of Feather”. Pauline Quirke has been taking Majorca family holidays for the past fifteen years. She and her husband, Steve, briefly lived here in the 1980s. Pauline is desperate to move back to the island and Palma would be her first choice of destination.

Cynthia Lennon is another fan of Palma and particularly loves the shops and the Spanish fashions that she can buy on the main street. Cynthia and her son, Julian are huge shoppers and love the leather items which they can buy at extremely reasonable prices. But, although Cynthia loves Palma for its shopping opportunities, her favourite place on the island is the area of Soller.

Soller is one of the most scenic places to visit on Majorca family holidays, with the towering mountains set against the backdrop of the sea. Cynthia enjoys the fiestas that take place on in Soller and believes that the resort’s laid-back ambience makes it one of the best places on the island to party.

Someone not adverse to a good party is Peter Stringfellow, another resident of the island. However, Peter isn’t interested in partying in Majorca and claims that he’ll never open a nightclub up on the island. Majorca, he claims, is solely for relaxing and Peter and Bella can often be seen out on their yacht during the day. Philip Green, the Topshop entrepreneur, is a close friend and often visits for his Majorca family holidays.

With families and celebrities alike flocking to the Balearic Island it seems that a Majorca family holiday is something that everyone can enjoy.
