A Mediterranean island that combines rugged coastal scenery with beautiful wooded countryside and wonderful beaches.
We have hand-picked a selection of boutique hotels and private villas around the island (see where to stay), and would recommend visting any time from late Spring to early Autumn. Though, if you like your weather hot, July and August are the most scorchio.
Away from the city of Palma and the (mercifully few) tourist hot-spots, Majorca can feel delightfully rural - even along the coast. And the magnificent mountains complete the picture.
In recent years, Majorca has become a popular destination for road biking as the roads are good and, off season, remarkably empty. With a combination of relatively flat areas, plus rolling hills or major mountains, the variety of road biking routes ensures that there is plenty for everyone to enjoy. We can provide all the equipment (unless you'd rather bring your own bike) and our guides will take you on your chosen routes. See sample itineraries
Other activities available on the island include yoga, personal training, riding, and hiking. Whether you're after a weekend or a week, we can create a mixture of daily programmes combining as many or as few activities as you wish.
We have scouted out the best spa hotels too, so if you'd simply like to fly out for some sunshine and pampering, we can make it happen.

Weather and when to go
June through to September has very little rain and lots of sun with temperatures sitting around 27°C and rising in the 30s during July and August. In October and November the temperatures are around the 23°C mark, so it's warm and you can still swim in the sea.
The winter is extremely mild, usually settling around 15°C with 5 hours of sunshine a day, making Majorca a year round destination. The Spring sees temperatures climbing up into the high teens and low twenties and the hours of sunshine are approaching double figures again.
