We all know what a delightful island Mallorca is during the popular summer months, but what does the lovely offer during the quieter cooler months? For one thing Palma. The capital is the perfect place to explore on foot with leafy promenades flanked by clothing stores, cafes and charcuterie shops.
For a taste of history and culture the Museu Fundación Juan March, is a museum celebrating Spanish artists like Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Juan Gris, and Salvador Dalí. The museum is free to visit, and housed in a grand 17th-century building worth seeing for its own beauty, not to mention the precious artwork it holds. Other Palma sightseeing highlights include stopping by its many churches, like the Santa María Cathedral and Sant Francesco Church.
You can enjoy some of the best restaurants in town without queuing for a table and head down to the Bay of Palma to enjoy the sights.
Of course, one of the nicest reasons to visit Palma in these cooler months are the designer shops. It is the perfect time to top up your Christmas gift list keeping cool whilst you do it.
Take a day trip to Deià, only 45-minutes away from Palma by car. It is a beautiful village that attracts stars of all magnitudes from its enchanting position surrounded by the Tramuntana mountains. Stars that have enjoyed relaxing breaks here include Beyonce, Harry Styles, Leonardo Di Caprio, Tom Hanks and Gwyneth Paltrow. There is an arty culture here but it’s not a place for tourism, really a hidden gem. There are some charming eateries and even if it’s chilly, walking the glistening coastline will bring on some amazing photo opportunities.
Of course, this time of year is ideal for getting out into the fresh air so you could be hiking in the mountains, cycle around some stunning villages or improve your swing on one of the golf courses.
Autumn heading into Winter is a great time to enjoy the delights of our lovely island. It is also the ideal time to look for property. Whether you are thinking of moving here permanently or buying a holiday home, our team at Lifestyle Properties are here to help.
