The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and is an all year round destination suitable for all ages. Golf, Cycling and Walking holidays are eternally popular and there are many places of interest to visit such as museums, art galleries, castles, caves and even a mini safari park.
The Island's Capital, Palma is a delight with colourful markets a magnificent Cathedral overlooking the glamorous harbour and ancient architecture to be found whilst wandering through the maze of tiny streets and tapas bars.
There are numerous beaches to explore either by boat or car and no shortage of sightseeing trips.
One of the most famous is the train journey between Palma and Soller through orange groves and the Tramuntana mountain range to the pretty little town and Port of Soller, the latter is reached by tram. The caves of Drach just outside Porto Cristo on the East coast are also worth a look.
The weekly markets at Inca and Puerta Andraitx can also be entertaining.
The Arta area
The area around the house has plenty to offer with fine sandy beaches at Cala Millor, Sa Coma and Cala Agulla being some of the most popular whilst those at Son Serra de Marina and the area around Betlem offering quieter alternatives.
The Tuesday market at Arta a gem of a town 7 kms away should not be missed. Dining out in either Arta or Son Servera is an enjoyable experience with a range of choices available from small family run bars and cafes to the gourmet restaurants, the local agroturismos and small boutique hotels that throw open their doors to non - residents for fine dining in elegant surroundings.
There is also plenty of scope for a cheap and cheerful menu del dia or a quick good value pizza. Something to suit all tastes and all pockets is available locally. There is even a Michelin starred restaurant in San LLorenc.
