Our time in Mallorca is absolutely amazing; the villa we are staying in is so beautiful with the most astonishing views. We based ourselves in El Toro which is a small village in Calvia well know for being a seaside community as it is literally located on the cliff top, our villa is positioned in a way that gives you the most beautiful views of the ocean. The main port in El Toro is Port Adriano, which is home to the most gorgeous selection of yachts I have ever seen.
It is also home to The Starck Marina designed by Philippe Starck and is known for being one of the most modern marinas in the Mediterranean offering an array of exclusive shops stocked with high-end fashion brands, bars and restaurants that serve food from all over the globe.
Considering we spent the first few days in our villa taking in the beautiful views of the Mediterranean, we thought it would be a good idea to go to the port and have some lunch. We went to Bruno’s for lunch which serves market cuisine with fresh seafood. I opted for fresh grilled squid with a mixed leaf salad and fries whilst the other main was slow roasted veal and mash. The food was so fresh and delicious; the only thing missing was a lovely glass of chardonnay which we decided to forgo as we had had rather too much to drink the night before! After lunch we treated ourselves to a couple of scoops of ice cream from the next door gelataria which served bounty, snickers and smurf ice cream amongst others so it was hard to give it a miss!
If you are planning to come to Mallorca and are in need of a quiet and relaxing holiday, then I would definitely recommend looking at Calvia and El Toro in particular. The village is well connected to Palma and the surrounding towns so even if you don’t drive, it is easy to hop on the nearest bus and go and explore other Mallorcan offerings.
We have an exciting day of exploring Palma planned, a lunch at Port Andratx as well as a day at Ponderosa beach club which is on the other side of the island and I cant wait to share the posts with you.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
