It’s a magical time of the year!
Spring is in the air and it’s a magical time of year in the Balearics when our islands burst into bloom with delicate white and pink almond blossoms which decorate the countryside turning it into a fairytale wonderland.
One of the best ways to ensure you experience this natural spectacle is to place yourself in the hands of a knowledgeable local guide who can take you hiking or cycling through some of the prettiest scenery there is while the almond trees are at their blissful best! If this inspires you please contact our concierge and we’ll hook you up with one of our trusted insiders to take you on a dreamy almond blossom tour
Alternatively, for a gentle stroll that’s suitable for all the family, try the CR2 Peguera to Es Capdella trail which is a 5km paved path with stunning countryside views on all sides. From Es Capdella you can continue through the Galatzó estate which is situated in the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains. The density of almond trees creates a white and pink carpet which, combined with the view of Puig Galatzó, is quite literally breathtaking.
You’ll find almond trees scattered all over the interior of the island, so all you have to do is jump in the car and take a leisurely drive along quiet countryside roads to see what the locals call ‘Mallorcan snow’.
Some of the best routes to follow include the lesser roads around Bunyola towards Valldemossa and Soller, or inland via Santa Maria, Sencelles, Alaro, Inca, Selva, Moscari or Lloseta. If you’re in the southeast of the island then head to Manacor, Felanitx, Sant Llorenç and Son Servera where they hold a fabulous Almond Blossom Fair every February.
Another wonderful way to take in the sights is by the vintage Tren de Soller from Palma where you’ll pass through fields of almond, orange and lemon groves enroute.
Luckily we have three perfectly placed villas to choose from where the show is right on your doorstep, something to bear in mind for next year!
Can Lavanda is a charming four bedroom family home quietly situated on the outskirts of Santa Maria with easy access to Palma and the beautiful sandy beaches on the north coast.
You can enjoy spring 2022 at this idyllic countryside finca for as little as €120 per person per night.
Can Vi Dalt and Can Vi Baix are two luxury villas sharing a sprawling countryside estate located between the picturesque market towns of Selva and Moscari and with stunning mountain and distant sea views.
These two 5 bedroom designer-dream villas share the same sprawling countryside estate, with all the luxuries and services you could wish for and the most epic views imaginable!
They make the perfect pads for those looking to relax and unwind in the peaceful Mallorcan countryside but with a good choice of amenities, restaurants and beaches all within easy reach. Nestled between the picturesque market towns of Selva and Moscari, the villas are perfectly placed for exploring the island with easy access to the motorway making it a smooth drive to Palma and the stunning beaches of the north coast.
To take full advantage of this amazing spectacle in spring 2022 the villas can be booked individually or together for larger groups. For a full house one blissful week would be as little as €70 per person, per night!
We’re proud to share the fact that the Balearics produce some of the most highly prized almonds in the world! Not only are they highly nutricional due to their higher fat content but they also have a luscious sweet flavour, so not surprisingly they are the star ingredient in many of our favourite local products and recipes. Some of our ‘must try’ dishes include cold almond soup served in summer, for dessert ‘gató de almendra’ with lashings of almond ice cream and last but by no means least turrón at Christmas time!
Ametlla de Mallorca is a charming cooperative of Mallorquina connoisseurs who offer a superb range of flavoured whole almonds and mixes with herbs and spices for adding to your dishes.
We recommend taking a look at their website where they also share some wonderful local recipes using almonds to try at home
For an indulgent aromatic experience we love the Balearic Elements collection of fragrances from Agua de Baleares and at this time of year their Almond Blossom Eau de Toilette feels suitably springlike.
On our sister island Campos de Ibiza produce an almond blossom scented candle which is sure to evoke the heady scent of the Balearics in spring and infuse your home with the blissful scent of our blissful islands.
We’re sorry not to welcome you this spring, but together we hope for better times ahead and to see you very soon!
In the meantime we invite you to stay connected with our social media updates and newsletters bringing the Balearics to you in the comfort of your home.
