A teepee for rent in Can Picafort.

14-03-2017Airbnb.com

Rentals in Majorca available via Airbnb are not confined to apartments or houses. There are also tents, motor homes and even a tree house. And prices are competitive - from ten to 38 euros a night.

While all the talk is about the Balearic government's legislation and of pressure on accommodation, there is an alternative. It involves having some land and tents that can be bought at leading stores. This is the case at Experience Nature Lapin (also Escargot and Lezard) in Algaida. The Airbnb pages for each offer an experience in the natural heart and countryside of Majorca. Apart from the accommodation, the facilities are confined to barbecues, outdoor showers and ecological toilets.

There is also a tree house in Llubi for 35 euros a night. The shower for this is a hose hanging from a tree. It offers an original and romantic experience in nature. Its ecological virtues are such that chemical soaps and shampoos are not allowed.

Also via Airbnb are tents in Manacor which are situated in orange groves and among lemon and carob trees. For those taking their own tent, the cost per night is ten euros. Otherwise, there is, for instance, a large tent which accommodates four people.

Then there is a teepee in Can Picafort. For 38 euros one gets a double mattress and mosquito nets. In Llucmajor is a motor home for 35 euros.

Sara - I completely agree with you. The reason is this government is so stuck up on the culture they think everybody wants - having never been in government before they don't have a clue. And previous ones have behaved no better. This lot know only three words - control, control, control, so have outlawed tents, yurts, camper vans etc. without even thinking that for many people this would be a great experience. At least things will improve in 2019 when the PP get back. End of the tourist tax for a start. And incentive for free enterprise business and less of the hotel monopoly.

YES!, provided there's an air conditioned yurt, tent service, and a "No DJ's Allowed" policy.

There should be areas for comfortable camping. The weather in Mallorca is ideal for sleeping outdoors.

Well of course. There is a demand for this. Quirky living. Why not? Mallorca needs to wake up, traditional hotel style of holidaying has changed due to the internet and persons travelling the world and experiencing much more. I cannot understand why Mallorca does not have proper camping sites, motor home site, dog friendly accommodation etc. Great winter tourism. It is called "Thinking Out of the Box". Why cannot personal homes "rent a spare room" in their homes or a "tree house" in their garden. I know why not .... The hoteliers will lose out !!!
