Discover the beauty of a holiday to Valdermosa
Valdermosa is a prehistoric village made up of native sandy stone buildings with terracotta roofs, nestled in the Tramuntana Mountains. Approximately 436m above sea level, the drive to get there is steep but is well worth it on arrival to see the great views over the valley and to be surrounded by beautiful flowers and lemon trees. A holiday to Valdermosa is ideal if you want a quiet romantic retreat or relaxing family holiday.
What a holiday to Valdermosa has to offer you
The Valdermosa monastery is the centrepiece of the village and one the first things you’ll notice when arriving for a holiday in Valdermosa. It was first built as a royal residence and was later converted into a monastery. You can learn all about the story of Polish composer Frederic Chopin and his female companion George Sand who wrote about her experiences during their stay there in 1838. There is also an interesting on-site historic pharmacy with lots of intact jars of potions. The Royal residence of King Sancho is also here, and although not particularly elegant or grand, it was indulgent at the time it was built when many others lived in poverty.
Shopaholics will love the range of interesting shops to explore on a holiday in Valdermosa, and even those who don’t like to shop are unlikely to get too bored as all the products are hand-crafted or one of a kind pieces. Jewellery, ceramics, art and embroidered items are some of the things you’ll find there, and are perfect as gifts for people back home or as a holiday treat as a reminder of your holiday in Valdermosa.
There are various restaurants and cafes to enjoy whilst on holiday in Valdermosa, and you should be sure to try the local delicacy Coca de Patata, an unusual concoction of brioche that contains potato which you soak into hot chocolate. Film star Michael Douglas loves the area so much he owns a house there, and has also opened a restaurant called Costa Nord which is well worth visiting, as it has a virtual reality show telling the story of the history of Majorca, narrated by the star himself.
The area in general is a great place to explore, and you could easily spend a day walking round the cobbled streets and taking photos of everything from the painted tiles on houses and quaint wooden shutters to the antique looking lampposts and wonderful nature. The locals are friendly and there’s a great sense of community here.
The city of Palma is not far away and as the capital city of Majorca has lots to offer. For further information on resorts and things to do in Majorca, click here.
