Taylor Wimpey España, which has been developing second homes across the Spanish mainland and islands for the past 60 years. Marc moved to Mallorca from his native Germany 30 years ago and one of his favourite spots on the island is Cala Vinyes.
He told LLM why: “Cala Vinyes is a wonderfully peaceful little resort that has a real family vibe. It’s ideal for those looking for a retreat from the pace of modern life. If casting a fishing line into the sea from a sun-kissed rocky outcrop is your idea of heaven, then Cala Vinyes is the place to go.”
While quiet enough for family-focused holidays, Cala Vinyes is just a few kilometres from two of Mallorca’s busiest resorts: Palma Nova and Magaluf. It means that the bright lights and entertainment options of those resorts are easily accessible, while visitors can easily retreat to the more sedate pace of Cala Vinyes.
Some of Mallorca’s most exclusive marinas, such as Puerto Portals and Port Adriano, are only a few minutes’ drive from Cala Vinyes, as are a wide variety of elegant bars and restaurants. There are plenty of designer stores in the area for those who like to shop in the sunshine.
On the south west coast of the island, Cala Vinyes is also just 15 minutes from the capital, Palma, meaning that those staying there have swift access to all they could need, from the island’s best restaurants, stores and nightlife to a thriving arts scene and lively café culture.
The beach at Cala Vinyes is just what visitors to Mallorca are seeking: golden sands, palm trees and calm waters that are ideal for swimming. Just a few minutes’ walk away, Cala Falco is also well worth a visit. The picturesque, natural and quiet sandy beach has crystal-clean water and is surrounded by rocky outlets and pine forests. The small beach club and restaurant that resides there offers stylish seats, loungers and sun beds for visitors to relax on while overlooking the glistening waters of the Bay of Cap Falco.
