July 13-20, 2024

Here is the outline I’ve put together of your trip so far. Final pricing and a list of restaurants and shops if forthcoming, but this will give you an idea of the direction.

Saturday, July 13: Arrival

Arrive at the airport and enjoy lunch at [details coming soon] while you wait for Adam’s parents to arrive. Pick up your rental car and drive to Ca Na Volantina Villa in Pollensa.

Sunday, July 14: Settle In & Stock Up

If time and energy allow, visit the Sunday market in nearby Alcudia to pick up produce for the week (approximately 20min drive). Stalls are open from 9-2 pm, and while some vendors take credit, cash is required for most. Spend the afternoon relaxing and settling into your home for the week.

Monday, July 15: Explore the Area

Explore your local area at your own pace. See the guide to restaurants and shops at beaches at the bottom.

Tuesday, July 16: Market & Culture

If you missed the market in Alcudia on Sunday, it also operates on Tuesday. Nearby, the beautiful Sa Bassa Museum is worth a stop (10am-6pm Tue-Sun). Also, if you enjoy history, Pollentia, right outside Alcudia, has an open-air museum where you can visit Roman ruins.

Wednesday, July 17: Boat Excursion

Take a half-day boat excursion with the family (5 adults and one 2yo child). This can be done from nearby Alcudia to eliminate the longer drive across the island and ensure you’re home by 3 pm. [Pricing and full details to come.]

Thursday, July 18: Palma

A driver will pick you up in the morning for a full-day tour of scenic Palma (5 adults, one 2yo child). Enjoy lunch there and take a guided tour of the old town and cathedral. We will also set up a tour of the Miró Foundation with a guide who is a good friend. [Pricing and full details to come.]

Friday, July 19: Ferry Trip or Explore

Take the public ferry to Formentor, explore the local beach, and return by 3 p.m. Alternatively, explore some of your favorite spots near your villa. See the guide to restaurants and shops at beaches.
