The Mallorca/Majorca region
Away from the island's bustling capital Palma and the frenetic atmosphere of its nearby "high rise" resorts, a startling change of pace and scenery takes over. Fertile fields dotted with windmills turning lazily in the breeze, give way to rolling countryside covered in olive and almond groves punctuated by vineyards and small, sun-bleached villages. Medieval monasteries and castles perch quixotically atop pine clad mountains and look out over the azure sea that encircles the island's 400 km of beautiful coastline, most of which is surprisingly untouched by signs of mass tourism and remains virtually unknown to all but a few of Mallorca's many visitors.
With fabulous white sand beaches and historic towns of Pollenca, Campanet & Inca to name but a few, placed on the north west of the island of Mallorca sits below the inspiring Tramuntana mountains. Here the island of Mallorca retains a leisurely atmosphere reminiscent of bygone days with many small villages virtually untouched by tourism, where you can find a sunny Church square to join the locals in watching the world go by.
In the south of Mallorca, pretty harbour sides and sophisticated yachting resorts hide in sandy coves protected by pine clad headlands. Inland, below splendid monasteries perched on lofty mountain tops, life still beats to the rhythm of rural Mallorcan life.
With 6 Michelin starred restaurants, bodegas producing quality Mallorca wines, walking and cycle routes and world class golf courses, Mallorca is amongst the most sophisticated destinations of the Med.
On our Mallorca website you will find seaside apartments and a selection of individual Mallorca villas for rent ranging from centuries old farmhouse to neat little Villas near the beach
Porto Petro, Mallorca
We feel that this lovely harbour side fishing village is maybe one of Mallorca's best kept secrets. Less than an hour's drive from Palma Airport and neighbouring the sophisticated and cosmopolitan resort of Cala D'Or, Porto Petro has retained its small town feel and the contrast of fishing boats now bobbing alongside some of the more opulent motor boats and yachts only adds to its appeal..
Bordering the harbour side, authentic Mallorquin and seafood restaurants spread their tables out towards the harbour in easy and understated manner. Pine covered hillsides climb out of the bay with the houses and apartments of a largely local population hidden away amongst them.
Over the years, this little town with its harbour side restaurants and two lovely small beaches has absorbed an increase in tourism, without succumbing to it totally. It is also a stopping place on the route between Cala d'Or and Cala Mandrago and the little train that plies its way between the two stops in the town – to the greater convenience of those staying in the port who would rather not take the 30 mins walk to this beautiful bay.
Naturally, the train also makes for an easy way of hopping into Cala d'Or, which for those with teenagers, offers the promise of a little livelier entertainment whilst still remaining more relaxed than other better known resorts
Cala Mandrago Natural Park, 5 mins away by car extends inland from two large bays, divided by a rocky promentary with pleasant coastal path between the two. Each has golden sand beaches with foot paths disappearing amongst the pine trees bordering the beach. Water birds such as coot, redshank and black-necked grebe nest on the area.
Passers-by are often totally unaware that Porto Petro has two lovely small sandy Calas of its own, and although there is now a sizeable select hotel on the outskirts, the beaches remain remarkably uncrowded.
There is a scuba diving centre in the town and a glass bottom boat makes a relaxing trip along the coast on a regular basis. Vall d'Or Golf Club is only 15 mins drive away.
