Mallorca holidays are bleached sands, blonde stone architecture and a glamorous Gothic capital

Imagine yourself perched clifftop on the edge of the Mediterranean where Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer honeymooned, dipping into an infinity pool that seemingly floats down to the sea. There’s the scent of salty air and bougainvillea, the sight of Deià architecture and turquoise bays and the magic of 17th-Century villas and Balearic spa resorts bathed in an azure panorama.

We love the secluded side of Mallorca holidays – those in the know flock to the enchanting village of Deià for al fresco restaurants surrounded by the fiery orange Tramuntana mountains or take the vintage train to Sóller for the seductive charm of an old Mediterranean village hidden inside a valley of orange and lemon groves. One moment you’ll be in the Gothic capital as Passeig del Born’s luxury shops lure you in before haute tapas washed down with martinis on a rooftop bar, the next on a bleached wood jetty leaning out to sapphire waters waiting for the sun to drop so you can dine on wild sea bass and Spanish bellota ham inside a jasmine-filled 16th-Century olive press.

We can tell you the best places to go for sandstone villages, chic pebble beaches and hillside coastal walks behind historic walls. If you want bijou shops and Roman remnants we’ll suggest the tiny town of Artà; for medieval streets and historical architecture we’ll let you know about Pollensa; and if you crave nothing more than white sands, snorkelling and swimming we’ll put you in the heart of Playa de Muro’s Blue Flag beach.
