Mallorca, which is the largest of the Balearic Islands, has a mild year-round climate, bud it is mainly in summer, when it becomes a meeting point for people from around the world who really want to enjoy their holidays by the Mediterranean sea.
However, Mallorca offers much more than beach holidays with bustling nightlife. The old quarter of the city of Palma contains Gothic architecture and countless corners full of history which are waiting to be discovered. There are unspoilt beaches with crystalline waters away from the tourist resorts. There are also small villages in the island’s interior and mountain regions, where the pace of life is slow and which in many cases have become havens for a wide variety of people from all over, who mix with the locals and form part of this authentic side of Mallorcan life. And then there are the landscapes, which have been a source of inspiration for creative geniuses such as the British poet Robert Graves, who is buried in Deià, the Polish composer Frederick Chopin, who spent time at Cartoixa de Valldemossa with George Sand, and the painter Joan Miró, amongst many others.
