Lloret de Vistalegre, Balearic Islands, Spain
Additional Location Information
Lloret de Vistalegre, also known as Llorito, is a municipality located in the center of Majorca, one of the Balearic Islands, Spain. The municipality covers a land area of 17 kmÂ˛ and as of 2008 it had a total population of 1249 inhabitants. The municipalities bordering Lloret de Vistalegre are: MontuĂŻri, Sineu, Sencelles, Algaida y Sant Joan. In the beginning of August there is a major party called 'Es Sequer', which is a gastronomical celebration around the fig fruit. The municipality activities are mainly revolved around agriculture, livestock and some rural tourism establishments.
Just five minutes drive from the house you will be able to enjoy one of the best loved towns in Mallorca, Sineu with it's Wednesday Market. Sineu is a a small village full of vitality. Some of the best Mallorca golf courses are at less than 30 kilometres: Pula, Roca Viva, and the new Golf Son Gual is just 15 minutes away. Nonetheless, if you really want to relax, the best option is to stay by the pool.
â€˘ The islandâ€™s hugely popular as a cycling Âdestination and great for beginners if you avoid the Tramuntana mountains in the west. Inntravel has a week-long route from the southern beaches to the agricultural plains. Itâ€™s a great way to experience authentic ÂMajorca in sleepy towns such as Sineu, Son Mercadal and Lloret. Youâ€™ll stay in comfortable agriturismos â€“ rural Âestates that offer a very different experience to the crowded resorts. Majorie, travel editor of The Mirror. 'Top Ten Cycling Holidays'
â€˘ Fringed by sandy beaches, rocky coves and clear seas, Mallorca is a favourite holiday destination. Mass tourism has made its mark â€“ Palma airport processes more than 22 million passengers a year, and all those visitors have to stay somewhere. But the largest of the Spanish Balearic Islands is big and varied enough for many different types of holiday.
Mallorca is full of unexpected treats, from a 7000-year-old Stone Age house to the glamorous modern art galleries of the elegant capital Palma. It's easy to escape the crowds by heading inland to the island's unspoilt countryside and mountains.
There's an open market somewhere on the island every day. One of most colourful is Sineu's on Wednesdays. You'll find stalls of art, craft, antiques and leather shoes, belts, bags and clothes. But watch for street sellers hawking fake gold jewellery in resorts â€“ always check hallmarks. Simon Heptinstall, TravelMail
â€˘ Although the season gets going in May and winds down in October, the islands are beautiful in early spring when the almond blossom is out. Outside the hottest months of July and August, all the Balearics are good for activity holidays, whether easy or more challenging, with plenty to see if you are interested in plants or birds.
From late January and throughout February, the almond trees -Â about four million of them â€“ are in flower in the valleys and across the plains of Majorca.Â This is traditionally low season, when accommodation and flights are cheapest, and while it may not be warm enough to lie on the beach, the temperature is usually just right for exploring the countryside in the sunshine.
Professional cyclists come to train in the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range in the west of the island, which is now a World Heritage Site. If that sounds a bit challenging, base yourself in the foothills of the range in the Es Raigeur area, where there are quite a few gorgeous boutique hotels.Â Or stick to the reassuringly flat Es Pla in the centre of the island, where rural tourism is also quietly gaining ground.
Although not untouched by tourism, the hitherto unfashionable towns and villages of the interior have hung onto their traditions and are now coming into their own. A dayâ€™s cycling or hiking may well also involve visiting a winery, an olive mill or a farm to learn how sobrasada, the Majorcan pork sausage, is made.
Majorcan chefs are reviving traditional recipes and adapting them to suit modern tastes. There are now six Michelin-starred restaurants on the island, serving dishes you are unlikely to find anywhere else. This renewed enthusiasm for the local cuisine is however also evident everywhere from unpretentious restaurants in mountain villages to the chic gastrobars and delis popping up in Palma.Â
If you canâ€™t get there to see the almond blossom, go in late spring when the cherry trees are flowering, or in the autumn to witness â€“ or take part in â€“ the grape and olive harvests. Then head to a hidden cove and plunge into the turquoise sea.Â
Although most resorts close down in the winter months, Palma is great for a weekend break all year round and life goes on in the villages on all the islands. If you want to do more than just lie on a beach, take advantage of the low rates in winter and get a taste of real life in the Balearics. Annie Bennett for The Telegraph

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Place! I will recommend it to everybody!!
The first thing you see when arriving at the house are almond, olive, fig, orange and lemon trees and some sheep grazing on the property that surrounds the house. Then you see the swimming pool and smell rose marine and other herbs, it seems to be in a bucolic place.
I was there in the winter but the weather was so nice that we were able to hung out a couple of days in the sun, around the swimming pool.
The Villa is really nice, exactly as you can see in the pictures, all the rooms and bathrooms are very big and have nice furnitures. The kitchen is like the old ones, with a big dining table in the center for friends and families who used to get together for dinners or special occasions, but it has all the modern commodities (included a very useful dishwasher).
Even if it was sunny outside it was winter not matter what and we had to turn on the central heating. It worded perfectly in every room. There were also a couple of old stoves in different parts of the house, so we went to the local store to get some wood and turned them on. It was great to sit around the fire and enjoy it, very romantic, what you really envision for a winter vacations.
The little village nearby, Lloret, has everything you need (a little supermarket, cafes, restaurants, banks) and most of all is in a strategic position: being at the center of the island you can reach everything you want in 30 minutes top. Palma, the beaches, the Caves, etc.
I will recommend this house to everybody who wants to have a quality vacation with a touch of old feel: the place is perfect for families with kids (they can run around and enjoy the swimming pool without bothering anybody) but it's also perfect for a group of friends who wants to do nothing but relax and have fun.

Thank you! The location is great for families looking to have a great experience of the amount of things that quiet Central Mallorca has to offer. Some of the most wonderful beaches of Mallorca are 25 minutes away and there are numerous towns to visit. The Sineu Market, on Wednesday, it is one of the local attractions, not to mention the local restaurants and cafĂ©s. We are very happy that you enjoyed our house. We hope to have you back.
