The Valenciana region

The island has actually been welcoming the rich and famous for generations. Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Claudia Schiffer, Jeffrey Archer, Boris Becker, the King of Spain, Raphael Nadal - they all live here or have had homes here. Being so accessible for many wealthy Europeans means there is clearly a market for luxury accommodation in Mallorca as the choice gets better and better each year.

Sailing is of course a big thing in Mallorca. It hosts many an international regatta each year and there are many top class marinas and yacht charter companies all around the coast. For those less able sailors, there are day or half-day boat trips available at various locations around the island.

With it's historic past, Mallorca has many wonderful buildings and it's capital city Palma is the place to marvel at the impressive architecture, from medieval times through to Modernist creations. Palma is also home to the most varied nightlife, with top quality restaurants and a host of late night bars & clubs.

A rich cultural history has left many remarkable sights to explore, with castles & ruins, cathedrals & monasteries, grand manor houses & gardens, and a host of art galleries and museums. For those with families, you can expect some great waterparks, adventure parks & petting farms. The resorts are particularly well geared up for families, and remember to check for local festivals that the kids can get involved with.

The stunning scenery thoughout the island is ideal for enjoying outdoor pursuits. You can find protected Natural Parks in all four corners of Mallorca, as well as the rugged and beautiful Tramuntana mountains that run down the west coast. Walking & hiking are popular activities with a wide variety of well maintained paths & clear signage suitable for all abilities. Cycling is massive in Mallorca, it's a well-established destination for the professional road cycling teams during the off season and there are plenty of routes to choose from. The warm & dry climate is perfect for golfers and there are around 20 golf courses throughout the island.

Each region in Mallorca has its own particular appeal - the northeast for history, the east coast for beaches and caves, the north and west for spectacular mountains and picture-postcard villages. If you want to know about the real Mallorca you should drive across Es Pla, the fertile plain at the centre of the island, with its almond groves, windmills and old market towns. Choosing where to stay depends on what you want to see and do, from the bustle of Palma, to the coast, to deep inland with many luxury retreats being in places you can get away from it all.

Mallorca is only a couple of hours flight for most of Europe and this accessability combined with the natural beauty and the climate make Mallorca a perenially popular choice. You can see how easy it is to fly here from your home with our Flight Finder. Go on, you won't regret it!

Is it Mallorca or Majorca?

It's hard to find out where the name 'Majorca' originated from - believe us, we've searched the whole internet. Our far-reaching research has lead us to discover that it's only the British (and their historical colonies) & the Irish who use it. To everyone else, it is Mallorca.

Some people think Majorca is the Catalan version for Mallorca thanks to the historical invasions by the Catalan King Jaume of Aragon in the 13th century. Not true, the Catalan for Mallorca IS Mallorca.

Wikipedia will tell you that Mallorca comes from the Latin for 'larger island' - 'insula maior'. This is in reference to it's smaller neighbour, Menorca (or is it Minorca?), 'insula minor'. As you see, no 'j' is mentioned, and this is because the letter 'j' didn't exist in Latin until around the 13th century when it arrived to take the place of 'i' when used as a consonant (as in maior).

The English language is based on several languages, one of which is Latin. Now we're not Latin scholars, but it seems that English embraced the use of 'j' more than the Mediterranean countries. So, 'maior' became 'major' and hence Majorca. As Mallorca continued to belong to what became Spain in the years subsequent to the Catalan invasion, the Catalan version 'Mallorca' remained as the name used by the rest of the world.

Mallorca really does have it all - glorious beaches and majestic mountains, a wealth of historical buildings and cultural experiences, a buzzing and cosmopolitan city, theme parks for all the family and all the shopping you could care to do whilst on holiday. Whether you want to visit one of the beautiful country houses, enter one of the remarkable caves, or chill out in a beach club, Mallorca has it.

Valencia

Get ready for rugged coastlines, beautiful scenery practically untouched by tourism apart from a few hotspots, a literary history including a few expat Brits such as "I Claudius" Robert Graves who located himself in idyllic Deià.

Deià is rich in landscapes and places to enjoy nature. There are many roads and paths to follow over the mountains, including the renowned routes of "La Travessa" which cross the Sierra de Tramuntana.

A discrete A-list of the international rich and famous are drawn to Deia, entranced by the rustic looking houses carved into the steep terraces below the church. Michael Douglas the actor has owned a house close by in Valldemossa for many years and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber recently celebrated his 60th birthday party at one of his houses in the village with Michael Caine, Michael Winner and Ben Elton as some of the celebrity guests.

DISTANCES

DINING OUT

Dining out is an absolute pleasure in Deià with a huge variety of dining experiences available from the rustic to the sophisticated.

A super tapas bar, La Bodega de Xelini and the restaurant Es Racó des Teix (with a Michelin Star) are only 1 minutes walk away. For special occasions there is yet another Michelin Starred restaurant, El Olivo within La Residencia Hotel.

There are 2 supermarkets in Deià with a wide range of produce. Fresh bread and newspapers are available daily from Es Forn on the main street of Deià, Arxiduc Luis Salvador.

THINGS TO DO IN DEIA

Most people come to Deia for relaxation. Sitting on terraces and enjoying the views is pretty much what it is about. Of course, if you do want to be a touch more active, then you can have a game of tennis - there are tennis courts both council run and in some of the hotels - try La Residencia.

From Deia you can scramble down to Cala Deia, a small shingle beach set in an attractive cove, where local artists still continue the Graves tradition of naked swimming and long parties at weekends. There are two restaurants here, with fresh fish as their speciality - they are only open during the summer season.

For a sterner challenge, there are plenty of hiking trails in the hills above Deia - check at the tourist office for maps and trail information. The coastal road is popular with cyclists - the twisting ups & downs provide thigh-busting workouts!
