Giveaway – come with us to Mallorca.

GIVEAWAY - come with us to MALLORCA

Peacocks in Paradise

The long-awaited seventh title in Anna Nicholas’s humorous travel series about how to live the dream in a Mediterranean country. The author explores different local cultural themes in each title. Anna delves into the island’s authentic heartland, exploring nature reserves, bird sanctuaries and paprika, fruit and almond farms.

Meanwhile, she and chum, Alison, are tackling all 54 Tramuntana peaks over 1,000m, enduring the arduous overnight Guell hike to Lluc Monastery along the way.

    Santanyi Market is a twice weekly market held in this little Southern town. A wonderful selection of stall selling wine, fruit, vegetables and handicrafts. Well worth a visit !

    Haven’t been to Mallorca (yet!). I do recommend a visit to Cap de Formentor, basically the Land’s End of Majorca, if you hop across to the next island.

    I’ve never visited as I can’t fly but I love reading the comments of those who have been and enjoy reading books set in places that sound very appealing.

    Puerta Pollensa is my fave place in Mallorca, the Passeig Vora Mar with its tree-line walks, restaurants and bars is beautiful, as is the Boquer Valley.

    Pollensa is a very pretty town which has a really good Sunday market in the main square.

    The return train trip from Palma to Soller makes for a great day out. There is a free art museum at Soller Station which has some lovely Picasso ceramics and Joan Miro prints.

    I last went to Mallorca 48 years ago and haven’t been able to fly since, as it was an awful flight back. So I can only go back there by reading wonderful books.

    there is a pearl factory in mallorca which is interesting but one of my favourite places is a factory next door which makes items with a lot of olive wood and other woods – there are some brilliant things to buy but it is interesting to watch people work? It’s more off the beaten tourist track than other places so it is good to spend a more quieter day here

    I cannot recommend a place to visit on the island as I’ve not been there, but I can recommend a drink that is made on the island.
    A friend brought me back a bottle of Palo de Mallorca which if I remember correctly had a very nice caramel flavour. Seek it out if you should ever visit.

    The best place to visit in Mallorca is the west coast. Soller or Deia are beautiful and quiet. Also Palma is well worth a visit.

    Mallorca was my first holiday abroad – many many years ago so I guess it has changed dramatically since then. I do remember visiting Palma via an extremely crowded bus, lovely food and drink and wonderful beaches.
