Mallorca boasts more than simply sun, sea, sand and sangria. Head into the island’s interior and visitors will discover picturesque cobbled villages, thriving local markets, wild pine-clad hills teeming with birds and butterflies and undulating countryside with fields of almond, olive and lemon groves.
And for a truly authentic Mallorcan holiday, what better way to experience this Balearic beauty than by staying in a traditional finca with Mallorca Farmhouses?
