PRIDE & NO PREJUDICE
A month’s worth of Pride in London events will culminate in a parade through the capital next Saturday 6th July. Established over 40 years ago, the festival is well and truly part of the fabric of the UK and is a time for many people, regardless of gender and orientation, to get together in the name of fun, tolerance and freedom of expression.
In support of this incredibly important event, Unique Living is proud to temporarily change our logo to echo the colours of the Pride emblem and show our support in the week leading up to parade.
The celebration is mirrored in other countries, some simultaneously, others at different times throughout the year. One place that shares similar timing is Mallorca. The ‘other’ island in the Balearics as compared to its slightly younger, more funky cousin Ibiza, Mallorca is fast becoming the popular choice in no small part due to the wide selection of beautiful resorts to choose from.
With many of its destinations offering a rich history and plenty of excursions, for those seeking a more relaxed getaway, Mallorca is a great choice.
Their Pride festival, or Orgullo LGTBI Mallorca as it is also referred to, started on Wednesday and concludes on Saturday 29th June. Visitors arrive from Spain and beyond to celebrate on the streets of Palma with a colourful parade and a live music festival.
Festivities aside, there has been a huge growth of luxury properties available in Mallorca many of which enjoy simply breathtaking scenery such as this outstanding seafront villa in Sol de Mallorca that also boasts private, direct access to the sea.
The vast 1,400 sq.m property offers spacious reception rooms as well as 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a cinema room as well as a highly desirable wine cellar.
If you are looking for a less palatial but equally stunning home, there is this fantastic villa in Santa Ponsa. The 386 sq.m property is complemented by a guest apartment and is just a few minutes from Santa Ponsa Marina. Should you favour golf over festivals, Son Vida may be the perfect location for you as it is home to Mallorca’s oldest golf course, remodelled in 2001, that was the venue for two of the European Tour tournaments.
Enjoying wonderful views over this prestigious golf course is this marvellous villa which is just a short driving distance from Palma. South facing with incredibly high ceilings, the property offers that perfect combination of modern design with traditional elements. In addition to two separate guest apartments, the mature garden offers a summer kitchen and a private squash court.
A partygoer might be looking for a different type of vibe and we have some great new listings in Ibiza including this modern villa in the countryside near Santa Gertrudis, somewhere to retreat to, after a long night clubbing.
Built on an extensive, private 2 hectares plot in 2004, it was completely renovated in 2014 and includes an open plan living room with double height ceilings. Ibiza, whilst great for partying, is most definitely not just a haven for club goers and is often the destination for people who just want to chill on the beach, maybe take in a yoga retreat or two.
For those after a more authentic style villa, there is this great option just 5 minutes from Playa Cala Bass beach. Modernised yet with masses of character, the property is complemented by a 2 bedroomed guesthouse so your visitors can enjoy their own space whilst you can retain your privacy.
However, you choose to party and/or relax, relocate or retire, we are able to help you fulfil your lifestyle ambitions.
