Mallorca - Sep 2009



Lovely villa in the most stunning location; totally private and isolated but with a vineyard at the end of the lane - almost Eden. Driving was fine and the food was glorious, the only real disappointment was the unavoidable fact that some of the larger towns and ports have become concrete horrors.Despite the claims of how unspoilt the North of the Island is compared to the South, Port de Pollenca is only one step removed now from Blackpool. Soller however is nice and the drive through the Mountains quite an experience.

Highlights .. The Lobster, the baby Piglet and Lamb cooked in the villas outdoor wood oven ... Having nothing but the sound of sheep with there bells ringing in the black of night whilst swimming in the pool... The glorious Syrah from the Vineyard down the Lane... The Grand hotel in Soller for the last day where lunch was an absolute delight... Clivia in Pollenca for a superb meal on our first night...

Pics now up in the gallery.
