Majorca has long enjoyed a status as a popular family holiday destination as well as a late night party scene for groups of friends. However, could it soon become a thriving ladies retreat?
A recent article written in the Daily Mail by journalist, Lisa Sewards, has seen her champion the island as a ladies paradise.
Discovering More to Majorca
Whilst the busy resort towns are awash with sun worshippers switching their time between the beach and the bars with outside seating, there is an undercurrent of charming local towns retaining much of their natural ambience.
It is in these towns that the relaxed, sedate way of life is at its most infectious and where, according to Mrs Sewards, ladies that lunch like to lounge. Mrs Sewards said:
“The plush Port Petit restaurant in Cala d'Or, with its fabulous views of the marina, has crisp white linen, smart clientele (the King of Spain is a regular, apparently) and grown-up cuisine.”
Yet it’s not all about impressions of glamorous marinas, high class couture and cuisine, the rural and rustic charm afforded from walks between the countryside also offers and appeal. Mrs Sewards continued:
“The inlet of Cala Figuera, a little further south, where fishermen's houses fall across the harbour's horizon like bunting, was a bonus discovery. Not a happy hour nor binge drinker in sight.”
