Local tips for our readers
Do you remember your first time in Mallorca?
Yes, it was the end of October 2011 and we discovered the island going back and forth, up and down with a rental car. After spending four wonderfully sunny days with really positive impressions, we knew that this was an island where we could live and work.
What is your favourite area in Mallorca?
My favourite area is the region between Valldemossa and Port de Sóller. I like the mountains with their refreshing summer breeze, breathtaking views and quiet spots all to myself.
Any restaurant on the island you can recommend for a special occasion?
I also love eating in the mountains so you can find me at the Michelin-starred Es Racó d’es Teix in Deia. However, my favourite restaurant is the also Michelin-starred Adrian Quetglas down in Palma.
And a great bar for a drink?
If I have the time to enjoy a nice drink, the best place for me is my terrace at home.
If someone was coming here for the first time, what would you suggest they absolutely must do or see in Mallorca?
To be honest, I am not very knowledgeable about the touristy side of the island. My suggestion would be to rent a car and drive around the island to explore it. You will always find a nice spot to stop, see things and meet people.
What is your favourite time of year on the island?
I very much like the autumn. The weather, including the temperature, is still really nice and warm. Everything is also still open, from museums and galleries to restaurants. I also like the autumn because it is when Mallorca starts to get a bit quieter.
Finally, can you give us a tip to escape the crowds in the summer?
Yes, of course. Book a room in Ca’s Xorc and enjoy the day at the pool. That's the best tip!
