Talking Article on Mallorca in Sunday Times

Lovely article in the Sunday Times travel section about Pollensa and the surrounding area, a good read for whetting your appetite (as well as counting the days)

Smiddy I enjoyed the article too although have to diasagree with some of the things the writer said about the beaches! He said how Cala san Vicente beaches were awful and then at the end of the article said there were a few exceptions Cala Molins being one of them

Here's the link to the article

Nice article. But "Matt Rudd travelled as a guest of Mallorca Farmhouses" Which explains why he wasn't extolling the virtues of a beach-side holiday, as most of that company's stock are (from a brief scan) in rural, or at least inland. locations.

Sorry Guys - put my post above in the wrong thread.

Just read said article and wonder if this guy has no sense of adventure or map reading skills!

On the up side; he did not mention PP. The least said the better in my view (shhh )

Yes Smid the phtos were good,did the place justice.
The one of the Sq was taken from the left corner by the new hotel Cal Oro next to the restaurant Pasada d Ariant looking in the direction of the church,the evening glow and lights on tables is so typical of our favourite spot,town or port thats why we love it so and never get tired of sharing it with each other!

It keeps on closing down on me anyway, stating Navigation Cancelled! Well, Pollensa, you know what they say - Immitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
