Mallorca – 29 May to 5 June 2010 – Casa (Villa) Galvany

In the garden at Casa Galvany

Here’s a final posting for our recent trip to Mallorca.

There’s a full slide show (218 images) here.

Highlights (100 images) are here.

Images in and around Casa Galvany (27) are here.

Our trip was organised through James Villa Holidays.

It wasn’t a walking trip as such.  But earlier starts could have taken us to some higher parts of the island, where the temperatures would probably have been amenable.  It was pretty hot where we were near sea level.

We used a Cicerone guide and also a Discovery Walking Guide and map; this conveniently links in with the walks, which are numbered on the 1:40000 scale map.  I also found this Guide useful on a visit in November 2006.

It’s a lovely part of the world.

Had a look at your pics Martin. Grand Holiday.
I can say route 36 is steep and also quite exposed on the LH edge, where the window is.
When you get up to the col the view down to the sea is vertiginous. The cliff overhangs and its a hell of drop down.
I can remember using my french vocabulary for a few seconds at least and i was glad it wasn't misty.

There are some lovely walks in and around Pollensa, Cala san Vicente and Soller.

And my reply:

Yes, Alan, I have walked around Soller. But despite the walking weather being wonderful in November, the town was pretty much shut down for winter, hence a preference for Madeira at that time of year.

That's Really Weird. Something very odd prevented me from commenting without re-copying Alan's comment!

That's strange Martin. It's not happened to me so far.
I agree with you re November in Soller. I recollect it being June when i was there.

I too enjoyed my walking trips to Madeira.We have been 3 times. We didn't backpack when we went as we found the budget accommodation was plentiful and the taxi's and buses cheap also.

it's probably all changed now.

Majorca is a favorite holiday destination with its guaranteed sun, sandy beaches and lively night life.there are other places too where we can spend holidays like Costa Brava, Costa Blanca, Costa Maresme, Ibiza and Mallorca (Majorca),these places are known for their long white sand beaches,villa's life.
