Island retreat: Mallorca has been a playground for the rich and famous for decades, with the island’s stunning scenery, Mediterranean climate and sumptuous cuisine winning over visitors from around the world. The island has become busy tourism spot, but there are still plenty of quiet retreats available to those who know where to look.
We recently caught up with Marc Pritchard of 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.
