He has some difficulty with a phrase that he does not get to say with a straight face because he feels it is self-help booklet material. With their constant interruptions the shooting stops. He must stay on the island for four days until another model ship arrives so they can repeat his explosion scene and line. This forced break spending four days in Mallorca will end up with him enjoying, despite his reticence, the benefits of the island.

Since 2009 Estrella Damm has been betting big on the concept of the Mediterranean personality of their product. A lifestyle, culture, gastronomy and way of understanding life. This time presents two emotionally opposing characters: a sour actor and a cheerful tourist guide  who eventually find some common ground.

The beautiful nature of those locations and local cuisine soon sweeten the actor’s personality. After a tour of the Serra de Tramuntana, a day of snorkeling and delicious fresh local fish and seafood … Who could manage to stay angry?

He concludes: “Thank you for these days, you have reminded me that the best there is in life is enjoying the little things”. There is no doubt that Majorca is one of those places in the world where you soon learn that few things bring us greater joy than a good climate, nice food and friends to share it all.

Sunset in Mirador de Na Foradada

One day, a peasant went to visit the Archduke Luis Salvador and with a touch of irony said to him: “I wanted to meet the person who has paid so much money for the Son Marroig estate”. The Archduke lowered his head and replied: “In reality, sa Foradada alone is worth much more. The rest can be considered a present”.

 

g_4b3txpmrnlIt’s the end of the season and so Mirador de Na Foradada Sunsets come to an end too. Mojitos in the “chiringuito” bar and romantic dinners in the restaurant viewpoint go… but not for long as 26 February they will be back for us to enjoy. You may still enjoy the last few days both at bar and restaurant until 15 November. The restaurant Mirador de na Foradada is located on the land of Son Marroig in Deià. This is the estate which the Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria bought when he became captivated by its beauty.

g_mfk340o437Recently renovated, it has indoor rooms and terraces with views to the sea and the Tramuntana mountains.  Thanks to the special beauty of the location and its Mediterranean cuisine, your celebration, whether it be a meeting, a business meal or other professional or private event, is guaranteed to be spectacular.

 

 

g_pcljxvi4urThe Chiringuito Bar: The bar has ample terrace space and two viewpoints looking over na Foradada.  The sea view is spectacular and in the evening the sunsets are especially beautiful. The terrace is large enough for outdoor parties, chill out evenings, cocktail events, etc…

 

 

g_q21c6gteaxThe Restaurant: An ideal place for that special celebration…The restaurant is on two floors, with a room on each floor plus 2 terraces.  You may book a complete floor or rent the entire restaurant exclusively for your event.  Different atmospheres can be created according to the client’s wishes.

Summer: Expectations vs reality.

We’ve been working all year long really hard to enjoy our holidays. Clocking in and out, putting up with terrible weather, thriving to do our best on our daily routine… always chasing the same carrot: next summer.

Sofa, blanket and Netflix nights are over. Pitch-dark leaving and getting home is over. So much work and time waiting for this must not go to waste due to lack of organization.

Now that you already have your flights booked and you know how many days and night you are spending on the island it’s time to do some good planning to make the most of your time here.

First things first: Accommodation. 

The most important thing is having the right accommodation for the kind of holiday you are having.

Either in the city centre, on the valley or a country house all of them have thorough information to help you choose. Make sure you book ASAP to take advantage of offers and while there are still rooms available.

Check out our restaurants, bars and cafés section. 

You could have breakfast, lunch and dinner on a different place every day. We highly recommend you trying the wide range of local food specially if its your first time here. Write down these names: ensaimada, frito mallorquín, sopa malllorquina, trempó and sobrasada. If you try them all you’ll have a good representation of the island’s flavours.

You can access all the information 24/7 from your computer, tablet or smartphone. Worried about your internet access? No worries! Here is a map with the free wifi points available.
