DAY 1 5:00 PM - FORNALUTX AND VALLDEMOSSA

Fornalutx has declared itself the most beautiful village in Spain. Valldemossa was a hide-away for many artists, writers and musicians. There is a Chopin museum, because it lived there for a while.

DAY 1 19:00 HOUR - WALKING IN PORT DE SÓLLER

The port and boulevard of Port de Sóller are reminiscent of Saint-Tropez. Here you can stroll along the boats and eat fish on a terrace while watching people. The harbor also has a beach, so take a dip in the sea.

DAY 1 22:00 HOUR - SON BLEDA

Son Bleda is a so-called 'agrotourism' hotel in the middle of the mountains, overlooking a valley: a ten-minute drive from both Deià and Port de Sóller. Pool with a view, and romance at its best
