The Granja Traditional Farm Mallorca

The Granja Traditional Farm Mallorca

The Granja Traditional Farm in Mallorca Esporles has become a reference point for those who wish to get to know the old, traditional Mallorca. A visit that combines cuisine, handicrafts and folklore. The surprisingly verdant countryside in the municipality of Esporles, close to Palma, is the setting for this old mansion.

This mansion opened its doors to the public as an ethnological museum and farm. The mansion demonstrates the Mallorcan rural life style of the 14th century and here you can enjoy walks through the gardens and see the making of traditional products of Mallorca.

In The Granja there are extensive gardens (20,000 m2) and terraced land, and in the woods that surround the estate, you will find over 100 native and introduced species, among shrubs, trees and smaller plants, at first sight a majestic pair of araucarias stand out, located in the centre of the main garden.

Visit the gardens, the house – with its attractive breezy loggia – workrooms, cellars, and the rather creepy torture chamber!  https://besttransfers-mallorca.com/product/la-granja-valldemossa/

Parc Natural S’albufera Mallorca

Parc Natural S’albufera Mallorca

Parc Natural S’Albufera de Mallorca was declared a Natural Park on 28 January 1988 (Decree 4/1988). It is also a Wetland Area of International Importance under the Ramsar Convention, and is included in the EU Natura 2000 Network

both as a Special Protection Area (SPA) under the Birds Directive and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) under the Habitats Directive.

S’Albufera is the largest and most important wetland area in the Balearic Islands. With a surface area of 1646,48 hectares, mainly of wet grassland and marsh, the Park lies within the municipalities of Muro and Sa Pobla. The origins of the wetland date back to ancient times, and its surface area and features have fluctuated with changing sea levels.
While part of the grassland area developed during the Tertiary Era, the current wetlands were formed less than 100,000 years ago. The coastal dunes are considerably more recent, forming over the last 10,000 years or so.

Serra de Tramuntana Mountains

Serra de Tramuntana Mountains

Discovering Mallorca: the Serra de Tramuntana mountains

The Serra de Tramuntana is a mountain range that runs along the northwest coast of Mallorca. With a length of 90 km and a width of 15km at some points, it includes 18 municipalities and covers about 30% of the island’s territory.

 

In 2011, the mountain range was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the cultural landscape category. The Serra de Tramuntana definitely deserves a visit during your Majorca villa holidays.

To declare a place “World Heritage”, UNESCO considers sites that present outstanding value to humanity: here, mankind has been able to adapt to a land devoid of water by engineering water-channelling systems of Arab origin, ultimately transforming the landscape. The Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is a Mediterranean agricultural landscape; it is characterized by terraces, water mills and dry-stone buildings, and planted with olive trees, almond trees, oranges, tomatoes, and vines.

The MA10 road runs the entire Serra, from Andratx to Pollença, crossing vertiginous landscapes, where unexpected cliffs overlook the sea. The colours of the landscape change depending on the season; sometimes the peaks are covered with snow in winter, and the towns have the enchantment of a typical mountain village. It’s no coincidence that these views have inspired many internationally renowned artists in their creative work.

One of the best ways to explore is, therefore, by car. The beautiful capital of La Palma is a great place to start, but from any corner of the island you can reach the Serra quickly. Ideally, the trip can be done along the MA10 in three days, enough time to get to know the entirety of this wonder.

Andratx – Valldemossa (41.2 km)

You can start from Andratx, a town 28 km from Palma. Take a stroll through the narrow streets and dwell in the main square, where you can easily find a craftsman preparing baskets out of palm leaves.

The weekly market takes place on Wednesday morning and is ample opportunity to buy some Mallorcan delicacy. Climb up to the Sant Bartolomeu church and the cemetery, where you can see the almond fields.

At this point, take the MA10 and make your way through the Serra de Tramuntana. The road is winding, constantly overlooking the sea, a series of up-and-down hills, but it will give you very unique landscapes! The route to Valldemossa passes by two very picturesque villages: Estellencs and Banyalbufar. What is amazing are the houses: tall and narrow, stone, with traditional wooden shutters painted green, built on labyrinthine streets, and following the slope of the land.

 

This section also offers two splendid sights: the Mirador Ricardo Roca which you will come across just before arriving in Estellencs, and the Mirador de Ses Ànimes (otherwise known as La Torre de Verger), a surveillance tower a few kilometres from Banyalbufar. Both are great lookout points where you can admire the coast and scenery!

Once in Valldemossa, visit the Cartuja, a monastery of the fifteenth century, where Chopin and George Sand lived for three months in 1838. You can not leave Valldemossa without trying its pastry specialty: coques de patata (potato starch brioche). Among some of the best in the town are those of Panaderia Can Molines (via Blanquerna, 15).

Deià – Escorca (37.2 km)

Before arriving in Deià, always on the MA10 from Valldemossa, stop in Son Marroig, one of the properties that Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria bought at the end of ‘800 after falling in love with the landscapes of the north coast of Majorca. The most important author of the Balearic islands reformed the old house preserving the fortified tower and making enlargements of Italianate style. In addition, he built a small neo-classical temple with marble of Carrara, where you can see the tip of Sa Foradada. Today it houses the museum dedicated to his memory. Since 1978 it hosts the annual International Festival of Deià, dedicated to chamber music.

Be sure to explore Deià, a city that has charmed artists from around the world. Don’t forget to stop by the famous town of Soller, whose valley is known as the Valley of Oranges. Sa Fàbrica de Gelats in the Plaça des Mercat is a traditional ice cream parlor that processes more than 30 homemade ice cream flavors: try its yummy and authentic orange flavor!

You can then visit the Port de Sóller, taking the nice tramway. This port is the only area saved by the boats in this part of the Serra, often subject to storm surges.

Continuing on the MA10, stop for a moment at the Mirador de Ses Barques, to see the port of Sóller from above. Before arriving in Escorca, you can’t miss the two artificial lakes created by the construction of dams in the valleys Cúber and Gorg Blau, to exploit the water resources from the Serra and the highest mountain, the Puig Major de Son Torrella (1450 meters ).

Lluc – Cap de Formentor (40.9 km)

Once in Lluc, visit the monastery of Lluc, the summit of the Majorcan religion, since it houses the image of the patron saint of the island.

Pollença is the last town along the Serra de Tramuntana. It is also a beautiful place for you to stay in one of our Pollença villas. Regarded as the cultural center of the north of the island, it is the gateway to the peninsula of Formentor. You can get off at Port de Pollença and stop at one of the many bars or restaurants along the waterfront. From here, the MA2210 takes you to the very tip of the island, the Cap de Formentor.

The route is just 18 kilometers, but with the curves, it seems to be many more.

On the way, stop in the Mirador de la Creueta, from which you can admire the Port de Pollença in its entirety in one direction, and in the other, the islet of Es Colomer.

Right before leaving, you will see a small tower at the very top, known as the Atalaia of Albercuix (originally built as a lookout point against pirate attacks), to which it is worth going despite the winding road (though paved with two lanes). From there, you can get a complete overview of the Bay of Pollença and Alcudia and Formentor beach.

Back on the main road, just after the tunnel that goes through the mountain, you will see Cala Figuera de Formentor on the left. Here, you can park in the car park and enjoy the beach.

The last few kilometers to get to the lighthouse should be driven cautiously, as to avoid the goats that frequently cross the road. The view at the end is – again – well worth it.

Alfabia Gardens Mallorca

Alfabia Gardens Mallorca

Surprising from outside & captivating inside.

The Alfabia Gardens are a particularly peaceful site consisting of a historical house, picturesque grounds and an orchard in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountains.

The estate was originally owned by the island’s Moorish viceroy and is mentioned in literature dating back to the 12th century.

“The entrance to the Alfabia estate is sumptuous, but the exit on the other side is wonderful. Entering the house, which is regular sized, crossing its main rooms which run along and look out over the gallery that extends around the grounds, means being absorbed and suspended between the most varied and beautiful scenery that the human imagination could dream up”.

Visitors can download an app with information about the weather, the environment, services and safety advice.

Shopping. A one-kilometre-long pedestrian street runs from one end of Cala Millor to the other. It has shops selling international clothing brands, jewellers, boutiques, perfumeries, souvenir, shoe and sports clothing shops, many bars and restaurants, ice cream parlours, etc.
