Many people know that Mallorca is the most popular tourist destination in Europe,
and is arguably one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean, largely because
of the stunning variety of its scenery, the warm hospitality of the islanders and
the richness of its food and drink. There are two main resorts for people who are
looking for only sun, sand and nightclubs, and then there is the rest of the island
-so carefully protected against over-development by the proud Mallorcans that stars
like Michael Douglas and Claudia Schiffer choose to holiday here.
Visitors today can benefit from the same inspiring beauty and tranquillity that so
impressed the composer Chopin, the poet Robert Graves and others before and after
them. A drive from one side of the island to the other can take less than two hours,
but in that time the visitor can stop to gaze out towards Africa from awe inspiring
rugged cliff tops, cross the spectacular Tramuntana mountain range, or leave the
car to hike to pristine sandy beaches only accessible by foot.
Casa Fortuna to the east of Palma is ideally located as a base to explore all that
Mallorca has to offer. Just ten minutes’ drive from Palma Airport, serviced by a
number of “low-cost” airlines with flight times from the UK of two to two and a
half hours, the farm can provide the ideal “get away location”.
