l Dear Sir, I appreciate that yours is an English language paper, written mainly for English residents and tourists but could I ask that your readers look at holiday lettings from a Majorcan perspective? The issue is transformed if you do! Were they aware that the largest number of holiday lettings are not between owners of holiday homes on the island and tourists coming to the island? These are the only people the hotel industry say are unfair competition. In fact the largest number of illegal holiday lettings are between one Majorcan owner and one Majorcan resident, as far as I can tell. To avoid the heat in July and August many, many families who live in Palma, Inca, Manacor and other towns rent flats on the coast for two months. The sea, breezes, many of their neighbors and cheap home cooking are irresistible. How likely are these families to rent a 3* all inclusive from an hotelier? I will let you all guess.
