Take the ferry from Port de Sóller to visit Sa Calobra, one of Mallorca’s most spectacular natural attractions.
Worth getting out of bed for
If you're staying nearby – and most guests do, because there's not a great deal to do beyond Can Simoneta – make the most of the golf (there are four courses in the area); Smith members get 10 per cent off at three of them. Watersports include waterskiing, fishing, kite boarding, wake boarding and wind surfing. Hiking or mountain biking are popular, especially outside high season. There is a tennis club nearby, and also stables. Canyamel beach is a short walk across the finca’s land and across the rocks. Not too far is the legendary Cala Torta beach, which is unspoilt though the chiringuito there is expensive simply because it’s so well known. Cala Agulla beach is not far away by car and is relatively untouched. Stop by sister stays Font Santa Hotel or Hotel Pleta de Mar for pampering sessions in their soulful spas. Visit in January for the festival of San Sebastián, the patron saint of Palma. Revellers also doff their party caps to San Antonio Abad during this month. Since he's the patron saint of animals, you can expect all manner of pet processions and animal-blessing ceremonies. If you're in the mood for carnival, this part of the world gets busy with fancy dress and brightly coloured floats during the weekend before Lent for Sa Rua. Semana Santa, aka Holy Week, is an even bigger do: Palma holds processions every day, and the smaller towns have festivities, too. In July, those after a knees-up should find their way to Valldemossa, when it's time to honour Santa Catalina Tomàs, the patron saint of Mallorca.
If you do fancy making the effort to venture further afield, Ses Rotges on Cala Ratjada is Michelin-starred, with a dining area out in the garden during summer. Renaissance in Capdepera (+34 971 563 713) is a romantic restaurant serving great French cuisine. Enjoy fresh fish at Can Maya in Cala Ratjada; make sure you get a table on the terrace looking over the small harbour. The best beach restaurants, or chiringuito, for lunch is at Cala Torta, but the ones in Canyamel is also great. Restaurante Porxada de Sa Torre, located beneath an old defence tower of the 13th century is very rustically decorated with ancient farmer tools as well as an antique oil and wine press. Order their speciality; lechona (roast suckling pig) and roasted chicken. Book a table at sister hotel Convent de la Missió's Michelin-starred Marc Fosh restaurant, or head to Es Moli Den Bou on Calle Sol in Sant Llorenç for Michelin-starred option for Mallorquin cuisine.
