Enjoy a luxury holiday to Mallorca with Elegant Resorts and discover an island celebrated for its style. The island has been a retreat for the rich and famous since the 1930s, but it wasn't until the late 1950s that Mallorca attracted major tourism. In recent years, Mallorca has taken on a new, glamorous style, with quaint rural villages and picturesque towns standing shoulder-to-shoulder with chic marinas, sandy coves and űber-luxurious resorts. This Balearic playground is very much a tale of two sides: the Anglicised 'Majorca' and the traditional Spanish 'Mallorca'.
The beautiful Tramuntana hills cover about a third of the island and offer a series of craggy mountains and calm, fertile valleys, while the capital, Palma, has a fascinating historical heritage and has developed into one of Spain's most beguiling and fashionable small cities, packed with fabulous bars and restaurants, with over half the population of Mallorca living here. Golf on the island is a year-round phenomenon, where the ideal climate meets ideal courses. And, if you are stuck for time, go to Mallorca for a long weekend, or, even better, a couple of stolen weekdays – spending a night in Palma and two inland in the northern heights.
