Mallorca: Valldemossa & Port de Soller

March 30th, 2023- Port de Soller would be our final night of the trip and it did not disappoint. On our way to Port de Soller we stopped into Valldemossa. It was a great pitstop not just because it was a stunningly  pretty village that felt like Spainish x Italian hybrid but also because it was a great stress reliever from the very narrow and very windy roads that were also infested with the most cyclists we had ever seen, making the drive equally stressful as it was beautiful. We loved wondering the charming streets of Valldemossa and stumbled one a quaint restaurant for lunch with a great view. 

I spy Riley...Port de Soller was the best way to end the trip for us- An afternoon in the sun and water at the beach. We booked Port de Soller mostly cuz we knew it would be fun to play at the beach for the boys, but we were not expecting how pretty the town was and the surrounding the location. It was such a cool mix of a beach town, encircled by towering gray, stark, massive mountains. We also went on some really awesome trail runs that lead around the cove, along the oceans and into the mountains, capped off with mom and dad enjoying burgers in bed, watching 'Catch Me if You Can'. Port de Soller definitely held its own to the other places on the trip and were so glad we got to spend a day there.

Mallorca: Pollenca Mountains

March 29th, 2023- We definitely could have stayed longer at Son Alzines in the Pollenca mountains. It was amazing. Secluded in the mountains, felt like we were staying over at our super rich long lost Spanish uncle's vacation home. The property was on an olive farm and was served with amazing views and food. We loved how peaceful and quiet it was there. We had hiking trails literally from our front door that lead deeper into the mountains and just got to be in nature.

Mallorca: Portocolom

March 28th, 2023- Portocolom was nice afternoon pitstop we made on the way from Cala Figuera to Sant Salvador. It cool seeing Sant Salvador all the way from here. Portocolom was charming and quiet, maybe a bit too quiet, as lots of places weren't open and felt like we were the only ones in town. But was still really pretty and nice lunch stop and fresh air for the boys. 

Mallorca: Sant Salvador

March 28th, 2023- Our second stop was a night up on the hilltop of Sant Salvador. A very winding road lead to this hilltop church & former monastery, with amazing views from up top. It was a really cool, unique experience staying up here. It was quiet and everywhere you looked was a view you just wanted to take in longer. Will remember our dinner of chorizo, bread and cheese on the overlook. 

Dinner with a view. 

Still hard to believe this was the view from our room.
