Itinerary

Description

Ever thought of taking a holiday on your own, but been put off by the thought of not knowing anyone – to say nothing of those annoying hotel singles supplements?

Well this could be just the holiday for you, a fun island break with organised excursions, hotel with breakfast and dinner, an English-speaking tour representative, and a host of new friends just waiting to be discovered. And best of all, there are no single surcharges to pay, as all the hotel rooms on this break are for dedicated single use.

You'll be staying at the Be Live Hotel in the popular resort of Cala Major, not far from the capital Palma on the south-western coast, and two half-day excursions are included in this tour, to Palma itself and to the Catalan cultural Mecca of Valldemossa. Book now for a whole new sun-drenched singles adventure in 2018!

Air Itinerary

Wednesday: Make your way to the airport for your flight to Palma. On arrival we will transfer you to the Be Live Hotel in Cala Major for check in and free time before dinner and the first of seven nights’ stay.

Thursday: Breakfast today, followed by our welcome meeting. Later, we set off on a half day excursion to Majorca's capital Palma which includes a guided city tour. Palma is a city with a wild history of Vikings, Moors and lawless piracy, and there are historic buildings practically everywhere you look. The pedestrianised old quarter is a labyrinth of narrow streets with arches, arcades and old houses now opened as galleries or museums. The other main architectural sights to look for are the 13th-century Catalan Gothic La Seu Cathedral, the 14th-century circular Bellver Castle, the colonnaded Arab Baths, the 14th-century Royal Palace of La Almudaina and the 15th-century Silk Exchange. In modern times the great Catalan architect Gaudí did some interior work on the cathedral, and Palma also features some magnificent work by Gaudí's almost equally eccentric friend, the art nouveau architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner – see for example the superb Gran Hotel in Plaça Weyler, now a World Heritage listed building, and just across the road from there the amazing Gaudí-esque Edifici Casasayas and the Pensión Menorquina.

Friday - Sunday: Days at leisure to enjoy the area or relax by the pool.


Monday: Today's half-day excursion is to Valldemossa, a popular beauty spot and Catalan culture magnet set among the lush wooded slopes and terraces of the north-western coastal hills. The village is of paramount significance in Catalan history for the 14th-century Charterhouse. Now a museum, this was the home of philosopher and writer Ramon Lull, erstwhile drunken troubadour turned mystic and prolific heretic, martyred, beatified, credited with writing the first European novel and still read in modern times by artists as varied as John Masefield, Patrick O'Brien, Neil Gaiman, WB Yeats and Harry Harrison. Chopin and his partner George Sand spent a winter here (their room is preserved – with his piano), and the village was also home to world-famous Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges. Walking is a pleasure in Valldemossa, with fine views of the countryside, and you'll find lots of good bars and restaurants in the lively pedestrianised centre. We return to our hotel in time for dinner.

Tuesday: Breakfast and a last day at leisure to go and do some souvenir hunting!

Wednesday: Breakfast and then transfer to the airport for your flight home.
