An accommodation to your liking

Experience staying in a peaceful paradise.
We have all heard about Majorca’s beautiful beaches but the reality surpasses fiction. In spring the sun begins to strengthen, becoming the perfect moment to savour the first rays and take that first swim that we have been dreaming about all year. What do we recommend? Well, you cannot miss a visit to one of the island’s gems: Caló d’es Moro, a little beach bathed by the sea and surrounded by pine trees that leaves its mark. Other must-see beaches are S’Illot, Cala Galiota, Es Dolç Beach, Cala Mendia and the unspoilt coves Cala Varques and Es Carbo Beach. These authentic turquoise water paradises will take you to a world full of beauty.
And also culture
Spring is a time for fairs and lots of them! In fact, this is one of the best ways to get to know the island’s true spirit. Now is the time when you can visit the impressive medieval fair of Capdepera, a show in which this picturesque town goes back thousands of years and disguises itself as nobles, knights and princesses. The Santa Margalida Spring Fair, the Pollença wine fair and the festivities of Sant Jordi will show you a very different side to Majorca where you can try local products, buy typical handicrafts and take a pleasant stroll amongst all the stands.
We have lots of them. For starters, the Sierra de Tramuntana has earned the reputation of being home to some of the most beautiful villages in Majorca. Like Esporles, Valldemossa, Sóller, Deià and Lluc, where the weather is cooler and where some of the island’s key monuments are hidden such as the Lluc Monastery, the Roman ruins of Pollença, Sa Calobra. The Llevant area houses small fishing villages full of charm like Porto Petro, Calas de Mallorca, Cala Millor and the impressive Caves of Artá and Caves of Drach.
Has anyone mentioned shopping?
Yes, we know what that is; we love shopping too! So, we are going to show you all the best things you can buy in Majorca. Whether you love handicrafts, decorative objects or accessories, the truth is that the island has created a certain type of style that will captivate you. If you want to buy a small souvenir, we recommend you opt for traditional crafts, for example, buying a siurell (a small white figurine with a whistle and red and green markings), clay cups, pottery, palm and olive art … And if you are looking for an ideal accessory, why don’t you choose a ‘senalla’, a woven basket? These esparto grass bags are the latest fashion in Majorca and are the perfect choice to complete a casual look. Other typical products are the Typically Majorcan albarcas and espardeñas, the perfect shoes for summer.
Let’s confess, we love food and even more so if we are on holiday. Typical Majorcan cuisine is a pleasure in itself. If you come, ask for a ‘tumbet’, a Majorcan lamb, pork or sepia fried dish, a ‘Trampó coca’, roasted suckling pig, Majorcan soups, rabbit with rice. It sounds good, doesn’t it? Accompany it with a delicious local wine like Armero i Adrover, José Luis Ferrer, Can Coleto and Miquel Adrover. And finally let yourself be enveloped in the sweet taste of the ensaimada, the coca de patata, the cremadillos, the cardinal de Lloseta, all delicious creamy pastries.
The sporting island
After a good feast, there is no time for a nap, you need to keep moving! Majorca hosts a wide variety of sports: hiking, trail walking, cycling routes, diving, kayaking, surfing, kite surfing, paddle surfing, golf… Take advantage of your holiday and enjoy new experiences on an island that will surprise you from beginning to end.
