The way to breakaway
Our story
About us
We are Bike Villas Travel; Louisa, Ed and Martin. We (Louisa and Ed) were born and raised in the south of the Netherlands and since 2018 we live in Mallorca. With our emigration adventure we are living our dream. How cool is that!

Our Mallorca adventure started in 2016 when we were running a villa as a guesthouse (villa Es Costeret). The first years we did this from the Netherlands and after we emigrated to Mallorca in 2018, we have been doing this from this beautiful island. With the founding of our company Bike Villas Mallorca in 2018, we have been focusing on cycling holidays in Mallorca, in addition to sun holidays. The positive experiences and feedback from our cycling guests have convinced us that there is a place for us in the busy cycling holiday market.
With offering cycling holidays in your own villa, we are a unique player in this market. In September 2019 we started with a rental portal with various Cycling friendly villas on Mallorca. And on 1 April 2021, a next step in our adventure followed. With Bike Villas Travel, we have started a Dutch travel organisation and Martin has joined us. Martin lives and works in the Netherlands and is an enthusiastic cycling fan and an excellent cycling coach. Together with his wife Susan, he is also going to take the step to Majorca in time.

We are very proud and excited that we get the chance to realize our dreams. We will take on the challenge of making it something special and unique. We are your teammate for a successful escape!

We hope to see you at one of our packages or Bike Villas! Wies, Ed and Martin

This is what we believe in
A few years ago, we were on holiday in Mallorca with our family. Because it was a special year for us, we wanted to do something special this holiday. This "special" became a day of sailing including crew on a private sailing boat. A luxury that we would not normally afford. This day was supposed to be the highlight of our vacation, but it was a big disappointment. The owners of the boat treated us like a number, they made no effort to please us and did not deliver what was promised (the catering was a joke).

With the launch of Bike Villas Mallorca, it was this annoying experience that stands at the basis of what we believe in. We believe in personal attention (you are our number 1) because we know how important your cycling holiday on Mallorca is for you. We convert your cycling passion into our passion and commitment to make it a unique experience. And because it is your cycling holiday, we deliver tailor-made holidays. You indicate what you want and we arrange it. If something goes wrong (we are just normal people) then we will do our utmost best to resolve it as quickly as possible. If you are happy, we are happy. We strive for a unique experience!

Our motto is: We zag where others zig!"

What is a Bike Villa?
What is the difference between a villa and a Bike Villa? This simple question was asked to me by a cycling friend who is a marketer in his everyday life. A very good question ...

Most of our Bike Villas have the "Cycling Friendly" certificate. You can see the logo in the description of the villa. Cycling Friendly means that there are special bicycle facilities such as secure bicycle parking, a beautiful bicycle-friendly design and appearance, materials for maintenance, GPX routes from the villa with height profiles, bicycle map and sports materials for extra training (without bicycle). A Bike Villa also always has a number of single beds available; a number of villas even only have single beds. This specific information can also be found in the description of the villa. A villa that does not yet have the "Cycling Friendly" certificate at least has secure bicycle storage and a number of single beds. At all of the Bike Villas we can offer services such as bicycle rental, transfers and catering. A Bike Villa therefore has all the facilities to make your cycling holiday in Mallorca unique!

Cycling Friendly is one of our best cycling friends. This organization has the mission to make Mallorca (and now other parts of Spain) bicycle friendly. On their website you can find all the information for a carefree cycling holiday on Mallorca as a cycling enthusiast. Cycling routes, accommodations, stories, bike rentals, events etc. They have developed a "Cycling Friendly" certificate especially for accommodations, which is now used throughout Spain.

Cycling Friendly
A new bicycle family!
In July, we had a super fun and well-cared-for cycling weekend with Bike Villas Travel at a special location in the Voerstreek. We had made beautiful cycling routes in advance, which you could ride in a group under supervision. But if you want to, you can also go on your own and make your own way. All freedom there. Breakfast is ready for you in the morning and in the evening they also cook delicious meals for you. When we returned to the villa, they even baked a cake for us. I arrived at the villa not knowing anyone, but we really parted as a cycling family. We had a lot of fun and rode well together, each at his own pace, but with the motto 'together out, together home'. On the last day, there was an unexpected storm and the organisation even came to pick us up by bus. What a service! I will definitely book again with Bike Villas Travel and can recommend this to everyone. I will not forget this weekend easily. Thea, July 2021
Everything was perfect!
The first week of June, we were on Mallorca with our cycling group "de Dooie Lus", an eldorado for cyclists. We booked a villa at Bike Villas Travel and we haven't regretted it for a second. After 100 km of cycling and 2,000 altimeters, it is wonderful to relax in a spacious villa with a beautiful pool. Via Bike Villas we also arranged other things, like the bicycles (top quality!), catering and groceries for breakfast and on the road. Everything was in perfect order. We will definitely come back one day and then we will call Ed from Bike Villas. Maarten, June 2021
Beautiful surroundings, beautiful Bike Villa and very nice owners
I had booked this Bike Villa including catering. What a relief that was! After cycling a dip in the beautiful pool, refrigerators well stocked and in the evening the owner Louisa who cooked delicious for us. We lacked nothing. Beautiful surroundings, beautiful house and very nice owners. Marieke September 2019
Ideal for a cycling holiday!
What a nice place to stay! The Bike Villa is perfectly centrally located on the island. With the road bike you can easily reach all the iconic climbs of the island. And after a long day of cycling you can still sit outside and reminisce about the day. Also in the house is everything in order, with spacious rooms, a large kitchen and a swimming pool (although we have not tested it because it was still a bit fresh). And as icing on the cake is also the service from the owners fantastic. We were picked up and taken to the airport and they were always there for us. In short, had a fantastic week! Erik April 2019
Perfect!
Perfect place for a cycling holiday. The Bike Villa is ideal for all the beauty that Mallorca has to offer in terms of cycling. Also great are the 12 single beds as we were with a group of friends. Furthermore, everything is available in the house to stay with 12 people. But the highlight of this house is Ed the owner. He arranged great bikes for a great price, gave route suggestions, always reacted super fast and has a real passion for what he does. Everything was arranged as agreed and everything at a very reasonable price. Sander March 2019
What a fantastic week!
What a fantastic week of cycling we had in early March on Mallorca! We stayed via Bike Villas in a super nice Bike Villa within walking distance of the town of Binissalem. Via Ed great bikes rented at North Wind Cycles. It was for us (2 befriended couples) the first time cycling on Mallorca. The island is really a paradise for cyclists! Especially in the preseason. We are very grateful that we enjoyed such a great week of cycling in good weather, just before the Corona crisis broke out in Europe. We have been spoiled on Mallorca with good service. Nothing was too much for Bike Villas, North Wind Cycles as well as the owner of the house, and every day we did get a 'visit' from someone who came to give us a blow or something, which we really appreciated. While we are still allowed to cycle outside here in the Netherlands, and Spain and Mallorca are already in full lockdown, our thoughts go out to Bike Villas and other entrepreneurs on Mallorca (and elsewhere) who are facing a difficult time. One thing is for sure: we would love to come back next year! Ineke March 2020
Super nice place and top location for cyclists!
Peak Cycling, our first organized cycling adventure on Mallorca, quite exciting. It turned out to be a great success! That was certainly also thanks to Ed & Wies who made our stay incredibly pleasant. They are very hospitable, helpful and flexible, easy to reach, know exactly what you need and think along with you very well. Ed arranged great bikes for us, provided us with beautiful and suitable routes and did the first shopping. We also enjoyed the fact that he cycled with us for 2 days. Wies' breakfast and dinner are highly recommended: varied, tasteful and more than enough for everyone. Bike Villa Es Costeret is situated on a beautiful and quiet location, is spacious and fully equipped. In short: a top spot run by 2 absolute toppers! We wish you lots of strength, suc6 and health in these b(iz)arre Corona times. Un abrazo fuerte, on behalf of the entire Peak Cycling Team, Joyce March 2020
Come as a guest and leave as a family!
Coming 'home' in a beautiful country house, where a filled fridge awaits and of course a hot bath is fantastic! Mallorca is already an adventure-rich island for the most beautiful bike rides, but the Bike Villas and the personal service of Ed and Wies make it all very complete. From the house a network of routes for mountain bike, road bike and gravel bike unfolds directly. Every hour I have optimally used all three saddles to enjoy the relaxation that the luxurious Bike Villa offers after the effort. Everything has been thought of and Ed and Wies are clearly passionate about making sure that during your stay you can't let your corners of your mouth drop. Catering, bike rental, maintenance, routes, transfer; plenty of possibilities. Coming as a guest and leaving as a family. That's the feeling they gave me. Christine February 2020
