Arriving at the airport in Palma
on the island of Mallorca
, you are on the island that has attracted visitors since the time of the Phoenicians. See for yourself why the Greeks, Romans, Moors, Venetians and the French were drawn to this Spanish island
. Discover ancient castles, restored palaces and farmhouses. Modernism was introduced to Mallorca at the hands of such people as Antoni Gaudí
, and is represented by the buildings constructed in the 20th Century. The famed author, Agatha Christie, was inspired by her Mallorca visit in 1932 as she wrote the short story, Problem at Pollensa Bay
The verdant green and peaceful golf courses
, and the excellent climate of Mallorca, attract people from all over the world. Villa rentals overlooking the sea are a welcomed vacation rental accommodation. Everything is close at hand. Pick up a few groceries and your villa rental is now your home. A condo rental will comfortably place you within your memorable Mediterranean holidays. A twenty-minute drive – you will see orange groves and almond trees
- from Palma will bring you to the pleasant main street cafés of Esporlas
, an inviting town to have a cup of coffee after shopping at the outdoor vegetable and fruit market. Pick up some flowers for your vacation rental accommodation.
The valley view you will see as you sit on the terrace of your villa rental will be one of the reasons why staying in vacation rentals for your lodging instead of in a hotel was the best choice.
Enjoy a leisurely lunch that you all prepared together in the kitchen of your accommodations. Afterwards, take a five-minute drive on a curving road - temporarily unsettling for the faint of heart and reminiscent of other coastal roads in Spain
– and you will reach the coved beach of Porto Des Canonge
. The view is worth it! From here, you can see the lighthouse perched on the cliff.
