Winter in Majorca: the 5 most beautiful villages on the island

Winter in Majorca: the 5 most beautiful villages on the island 

The temperatures start to drop, celebrations with family and friends begin, and the atmosphere in the streets is different: winter is just around the corner. There's no doubt that this season of the year is full of traditions, experiences and unique moments to spend with your loved ones. Contrary to what you might think, the island offers us an endless number of activities and places to discover during the winter, and that is why we have chosen the 5 most charming villages to visit during these dates.

Valldemossa 

Known for its excellent coca de patata, this charming village is located in the heart of the Serra de Tramuntana and is one of the most visited villages by tourists due to its breathtaking mountain scenery and rich cultural heritage. Just 15 minutes away from the cosmopolitan city of Palma, it is strongly recommended to visit and stay in the village during the winter due to the lack of tourism during these dates, perfect for strolling around the village and enjoy a hot chocolate. It has a weekly market every Sunday, and numerous shops spread over its cobblestone streets. A must-see!

Sóller

Considered a paradise for cyclists and hikers, this impressive town offers a host of activities for all those who decide to visit it. Located in the middle of an "orange valley", it has a locomotive that departs to Palma on a daily basis, the main attraction of the town that will make you travel in time.  Today it has the nickname of the "golden valley", which is why many decide to buy products such as jam, natural juices and exquisite ice cream while wandering the streets discovering modernist buildings and the Botanical Garden.

Esporles

Located in the west of the island not far from Valldemossa, this romantic village preserves all its original charm. It features typical houses with a stone façade, winding streets and an incredible landscape in the Tramuntana mountain range. It should be mentioned that the access is difficult with public transport, which is why it is not as frequented by tourists as other villages. It has an excellent offer of local shops and restaurants, and has the historic mansion and museum of La Granja, the main attraction of the town.

Fornalutx 

Known as "the most beautiful village in Spain", this mountain village is located on the highest peak of the Serra de Tramuntana. Made up of country houses, fincas and stone houses with red roofs, they combine perfectly with the aroma of the citrus trees planted around them. It is considered an authentic traditional Mallorcan village, and it can be said that the entire village is the main attraction due to its good conservation since 1980.

Santanyi 

We head towards the south-east of the island, leaving behind the Tramuntana mountain range, to reach one of the most rural and Mallorcan villages on the island. Located near the Mediterranean coast, it has a privileged location and is very popular amongst artists, which is why you can find numerous art galleries and workshops in the narrow streets of the village. You will find the fishing villages of Cala Figuera and Cala Santanyi very close by.  And what could be better than staying in the village itself to enjoy your holidays
