Visit Palma de Mallorca:
A trip to Majorca wouldn't be complete without exploring the island's vibrant capital, Palma de Mallorca.

Experience Serra de Tramuntana:
Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range offers breathtaking natural beauty. Embark on scenic hikes, mountain biking trails, or simply take a leisurely drive to appreciate the rugged cliffs, terraced landscapes, and picturesque villages that dot the region. The views from the mountains are truly mesmerizing and provide ample opportunities for stunning photographs. We have villas in Pollensa that provide the most dramatic views of the mountains.
Discover Historic Towns:
Majorca is home to several charming historic towns that are worth exploring. Take a trip to Valldemossa, known for its enchanting cobbled streets and the famous Carthusian Monastery. Explore the quaint town of Pollença, with its vibrant Sunday market and historic churches. Soller, with its beautiful architecture and picturesque tram ride, is another gem not to be missed.
Indulge in Gastronomic Delights:
Majorca is a culinary paradise, offering a wide array of delicious dishes influenced by both Mediterranean and Spanish cuisines. Explore local markets to sample fresh produce, try traditional dishes such as sobrasada (cured sausage) and pa amb oli (bread with oil and toppings), and savor fresh seafood in beachfront restaurants. Consider taking a cooking class to learn how to recreate these flavours back at your Majorca holiday villa. One of the benefits of a Majorca self catering villa holiday is being able to cook whatever local delights that you wish.

Majorca's natural beauty extends beyond its beaches and mountains. Engage in outdoor activities such as horseback riding through the countryside, playing golf on world-class courses, or sailing along the stunning coastline.
