Spring - Possibly one of the most glorious seasons of the year in Mallorca, despite having an unseasonably warm and dry winter, the flowers are flourishing, and the bushes are green. The island starts to creep out of hibernation with holidaymakers arriving with bikes and hiking shoes. The gruelling Tramuntana mountains make for fantastic cycle training, and the beautiful flat country roads make the practice second to none. The GR221 Dry Stone Route through the mountains is a favourite for hikers too.
One particular highlight of the Spring schedule is, of course, Easter, with spectacular festivities happening right across the Easter weekend, it is a shame to miss the traditional parades and events happening.
With that said, one of the traditions of Easter is Panades, which of course we have tried our hand at making and you can rest assured that the recipe is tried, tested and given two thumbs up!
If you're around Mallorca in April, one highlight in the town of Pollença is the Fira del Vi. Usually, around 36 local bodegas take part that span across the whole island. The entrance costs around 10 €, and the event runs all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Sampling the islands best wines is such a delight in itself not to mention the fantastic Claustre de Sant Domingo setting that it takes place at.
What else are we excited about this Spring? Our guests are arriving! We're pleased to welcome everyone to the beginning of the 2016 season and wish everybody who stays with us a fantastic holiday here in Mallorca.
We'll hit you back up soon with part III talking about Summer.
