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 km² and as of 2008 it had a total population of 1249 inhabitants. The municipalities bordering Lloret de Vistalegre are: Montuïri, 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.
• The island’s hugely popular as a cycling destination 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. It’s a great way to experience authentic Majorca in sleepy towns such as Sineu, Son Mercadal and Lloret. You’ll stay in comfortable agriturismos – rural estates that offer a very different experience to the crowded resorts. Majorie, travel editor of The Mirror. 'Top Ten Cycling Holidays'
• Fringed by sandy beaches, rocky coves and clear seas, Mallorca is a favourite holiday destination. Mass tourism has made its mark – 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 – always check hallmarks. Simon Heptinstall, TravelMail
• 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 - about four million of them – are in flower in the valleys and across the plains of Majorca. 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. 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 day’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.
If you can’t get there to see the almond blossom, go in late spring when the cherry trees are flowering, or in the autumn to witness – or take part in – the grape and olive harvests. Then head to a hidden cove and plunge into the turquoise sea.
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
