Mallorca

For Miró it was the pure Mediterranean light. For hikers and cyclists, it is the Serra de Tramuntana's formidable limestone spires and bluffs. For others it is as fleeting as the almond blossom snowing on meadows in spring, or the interior's vineyards in their autumn mantle of gold.

Wherever your journey takes you, Mallorca never fails to seduce.

In recent years, Mallorca has taken on a new, glamorous style - high end hotels are replacing budget accommodation and the beautiful Balearic island of white-sand beaches and soaring mountains is becoming one of the Mediterranean's chicest holiday destinations. Up and down the island, locals are embracing their roots and revamping the island’s old manor houses, country estates and long-abandoned fincas (farmhouses,) into refined rural retreats. We have personally fallen for the quiet

charm of Mallorca's hinterland among the olive, carob and almond groves. You will be seduced by its secluded villages, the relaxed way of life, the endless sunny afternoons and the picturesque locations between a densely pined hillside and the glimmering Mediterranean Sea.

Mallorca also has an incredibly sophisticated food scene. Eating out in Palma has never been more exciting, with chefs – inspired as much by their Mallorcan grandmothers as Mediterranean nouvelle cuisine – adding a pinch of creativity and spice to the city's food scene. Inland, restaurants play up hale-and-hearty dishes, like suckling pig spit-roast, to perfection, pairing them with locally grown wines. On the coast, bistros keep flavours clean, bright and simple, serving the catch of the day with big sea views. We cannot wait to share some of our favourite addresses with you.

When to go

If you prefer average temperatures in the 20s and 30s and avoiding crowds of summer tourists before they descend on the island, then the best time to go is between March and May. Summer has a long stretch in Mallorca – from June to September – and is characterized by sweltering temperatures. Autumn is another nice shoulder season with mild temperatures and cooling rains. It is not rare to have lunch out on a terrace in November!

How to get there

Palma airport, only 8 kilometres east of Palma, is the third largest airport in Spain. During the summer months, this is one of the busiest airports in Europe and is well equipped for the millions of tourists that travel through it each year. There are regular flights from all major UK cities, including London, Manchester, and Liverpool, all year around.

August makes a lot of sense for me and my family. I go to both ski and beach holidays every year and could not decide whether I should get a summer house or a flat in the Alps. Now I’ll get both!
