Apartments in Mallorca: Accommodations with style
Mallorca is the biggest island in the Balearic Archipelago, located in the Mediterranean. The language spoken is Majorcan, a mix of Catalan and Spanish. The climate is warm in summer and moderately cold in winter. Tourism is the motor of its economy receiving more than 13 million tourists per year; as a result it has excellent services and infrastructure. The landscapes are so remarkable that in 1968, the movie “The Magus” with Anthony Quinn, Candice Bergen and Michael Caine was filmed in Portals Vells Cove, which was named after the movie. Not only does Mallorca have 128 beaches but there are also important mountain regions and sporting activities specific to this landscape. Another of the most compelling aspects is the cuisine of the Balearic Islands, which includes the Mallorcan fry-up, greixonera (traditional clay pot) with tumbet and, for dessert, the ensaimada. When it comes to regional festivals, they are celebrated all year round. So don’t forget to rent one of our Mallorca apartments and let yourself get carried away.
