Location description from owner

The Balearic Islands region

Mallorca lies in the Mediterranean Sea off the south east coast of mainland Spain. Flying time from most UK airports is around 2 - 2.1/2 hours and on arrival local time is one hour ahead of Greenwich Time. Son Sant Joan, which is the main airport, is a large modern facility, and is located in the south of the island just outside the capital Palma. Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and has something to offer everyone.

The capital Palma is a historical port town, with great shopping, museums and art galleries which are well worth visiting. Palma is the only real city of the Balearics yet its slow pace of life is quite distinct from the Spanish city's of the mainland. The centrepiece of its beautiful historic quarter with grand Renaissance mansions and Baroque churches is its Gothic cathedral which took over 500 years to build and as an attraction compares favourably with the better known cathedrals of Spain.

The island of Mallorca has outstanding beaches along all of its coastline. And with over 300 days of sunshine a year you can't go far wrong in choosing this island paradise for your beach holiday destination.

Sierra of Tramuntana: standing at 1445 metres above sea level, Puig Mayor is the highest point in Mallorca. A day spent driving down the northwest coast from Pollenca to Andratx is simply stunning with notable stops at Sa Calobra where you must follow a coastal path through tunnels in the cliffs to the amazing limestone gorge at Torrente de Pareis. You must also visit the village of Deia which has long been known as an artist's hang out where the likes of the poet Robert Graves and the artist Joan Mir resided.

A great day out from Palma is to take the train to Soller. This narrow gauge train has covered this route through the Serra de Tramuntana mountains since 1912. The one-hour trip leaves Palma from the rail station in Cala Eusebi Estada near the Plaa de Espanya. The journey is beautiful as the vintage train goes through some stunning countryside. On arrival in Soller you can get on Mallorca's first electric tram which will transport you at a snail's pace to the Port of Soller 5km away.

Mallorca has some spectacular caves at various locations around the island. Probably the most spectacular are the Caves of Drach (Coves del Drach) at Portocristo. Two other impressive cave are the Caves of Hams and the Caves of Arta.

In 1838 Frederic Chopin and George Sand arrived in Mallorca to continue their love affair in the idyllic town of Valldemossa in the Tramuntana mountains just 18km from Palma. Today in Valdemossa you can still buy the book "Winter in Mallorca" which George Sand wrote there.

Marineland is one of Mallorca's most popular tourist attractions and is the only amusement park in the Balearic islands to feature performing dolphins and sea lions.

There are so many wonderful attractions in Mallorca that there is sure to be something for everyone to see. So whether you are looking for thrills and excitement, history and local artefacts, or animals and the more exotic, you will not have to look far for attractions in Mallorca. The island is also a beautiful setting for walking, cycling and fishing holidays.

Cala Ferrera

The smart resort of Cala d'Or is part of the municipal district of Santanyí, on the southern half of the east coast of Mallorca. It is only around 65km, or 40 miles east of Palma and the Son Sant Joan International airport.

Cala d'Or today is a modern purpose built resort that has grown from a small traditional Mallorcan fishing village. Over the years the resort has expanded, and now covers an area of over 4km of small sandy coves and creeks. This growth has for the most part been controlled, and the town still has the feeling of a small village with few, if any, high rise buildings.

The largest of these coves is called Cala Llonga, which has been developed into a large marina. The focal point of the town centre is a pedestrian zone around the area of Cala d'Or and Cala Gran, which has a varied selection of shops, bars, restaurants, mini golf etc.

The beach at Cala Gran is the largest in the town. Near here is Cala d'Or itself, from which the resort takes its name. This is a pine fringed cove with a small beach. Sun loungers, parasols and pedaloes can be hired at both of these beaches. In addition, there is also around 8 or 9 other smaller sandy coves in the area. The closest sandy beaches to the apartment are Cala Ferrera and Cala Esmeralda, which are only a stroll away. A bit further you can walk to Cala Serena, a lovely, small and quite beach with crystal blue water. It is ideal for small children.

If you wish to escape from Cala d'Or for the day, many visitors take the morning bus to Es Trenc. This beautiful beach of clear blue water and golden sand, backed by pine trees and dunes, stretches for almost 5km along the wild south eastern coast of the island. There's a small bar-restaurant here and you can hire sun umbrellas, but there are few other facilities and the beach rarely gets packed with bodies. Be warned though, Es Trenc is popular with nudists and the bodies that you do see are likely to be bare.

The Sunday morning market at Felanitx is recognised as being one of the best in Majorca, and is well worth a visit. This is a good place to pick up some locally made pottery. Also certainly worth a mention are the fruit and produce markets which are held at nearby Santanyi every Wednesday and Saturday mornings. There are many street markets during the week in different nearby towns.

For evening entertainment the resort does have an increasing number of lively bars that tend to be centred around the pedestrian zone. However, all things considered, and in keeping with much of the east coast, Cala d'Or is generally a quiet low key resort that is perhaps more suited to those looking for a relaxing or family holiday.

“Nicely furnished but that's it”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2016

We could not disagree with the previous reviews more.. There are so many things wrong with this place I dont know where to start..First of all, it was filthy. Sand everywhere- beds, the sofa (if u can call that piece of foam with a disgusting polyester fabric on top a sofa), filthy rug in the hall, dirty drawers, flufs of dust on both fans, filth under the bed, mould in the shower cubicle and grouting around the bath, on the shower curtain. There is no window in the shower cubicle, hence no means of ventilation. Extremely noisy, could literally hear every flip flop passing by (we stayed with our 15 mo so this one was especially important to us)- the bedroom window is on the ground floor and faces the noisy back path. You can hear people dragging their furniture or flushing their toilets upstairs. Our bath kept blocking all the time (we were told nothing can be done about this). The toilet was blocked too but this was fixed. The light from the street lamp pours into the bedroom at night (again not very sleep inducing for the baby). Some nights we had to sleep with windows closed because of the noise, but it was still too light and hot of course, so my LO was restless all night. The garden was untidy, TV not working, bottom of the sauce pan fell off while cooking (how dangerous is that?!).No dishwasher. There was even some horrible plastic bed sheets that we removed after our first night as they make you sweat like a pig (why?! For some incontinent grannies?!) Four years ago we stayed at the Ernesto aparment which is split on two floors and facing the sea. it was absolutely perfect!It was quiet and had everything unlike this one. We thought it was owned by the same person and hence expected the same high standard but this was not the case. All in all its way too expensive for what it is!

“can't wait to return”

The apartment and location were wonderful. It like a home from home with all the standards you expect.
