ACCOMMODATION 2020

Guest Family

TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION Per week
Bed and breakfast € 215
Half board € 260

Host family accommodation is available throughout the year. Most families live near the school and are rarely more than 20 minutes away by public transport.

All of our host families live in flats, as there are practically no individual houses in Palma. Apartment buildings (both old and modern) are rarely more than 8 floors high. A typical flat will have 3 or 4 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room and living room. Some flats have terraces; almost all of them have balconies.

It is difficult to describe a typical family as there is such a variety; some are young couples, some have children still living at home, others, perhaps the majority, have grown-up children who no longer live at home (but often appear for lunch on Sundays!). Lunch is usually eaten quite late (around 14.30) and dinner is usually about 21.00.

All host families are carefully selected by our Accommodation Department.

Shared Apartment

TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION Per week
Single room € 270
Shared room € 205

We have a number of furnished apartments available for rent that you can share with other students.

All apartments are centrally located and are therefore between 10-20 minutes from the school on foot or by public transport.

You normally have your own individual bedroom although some larger rooms are also available for two or more students. If you are travelling to Palma with friends or family you can therefore request to share a bedroom in an apartment. Apart from a bed (or beds) each bedroom also contains a desk and at least one wardrobe.

Each apartment also has a kitchen, bathroom and living room which you share. Facilities include a washing machine and TV. Some apartments also have telephones, but these are programmed to accept incoming calls only.

You are provided with sheets, blankets and towels, but you should bring your own beach towels. The apartments are cleaned once a week and bed linen is also changed weekly.

You are provided with a set of keys so that you can come and go when you please.
