Majorca is a popular holiday destination with many Brits, who are attracted by its good weather, fine beaches and excellent tourist infrastructure. Even though Majorca is a relatively small island, it is still possible to find quiet spots, and a holiday rental villa in Son Carrio is one example. Situated just 5km inland from the eastern coastal tourist resort of Porto Cristo, the self catering accommodation in Son Carrio has everything that you need to make your vacation a comfortable one. With easy access to all the nearby attractions, you will have the tranquillity that comes with staying in a smaller town, and a short distance away, all the facilities that you would associate with a tourist resort.
If you are looking for activities to keep yourself and your family or companions occupied whilst on holiday in San Carrio, then you will be pleased to know that there are a wealth of things to do. With the beach only 5km away, you may wish to walk there on one or more days in the early morning. When at the beach, a dip in the sea will cool you off, before you choose your next activity, which could be water skiing or snorkelling. After a lunch perhaps you might like to rent a bicycle for half a day, and go for a cycle inland, or even book a half day’s horse riding trek. There are no golf courses within the immediate area, but Majorca does boast 15 courses scattered throughout the island should you wish to make the journey in order to get a round in.
There are many places to visit whilst on holiday in Son Carrio, and in fact, two of Majorca’s major tourist attractions are practically on your doorstep. These are the two impressive cave systems, which to use their Spanish names, are known as Cuevas del Hams and Cuevas del Drach. You will really feel as though you are entering another world as you take a tour of these caves. Farther afield, a day trip to Palma is recommended, where there are many things to see, such as the remarkable Beliver Castle, built in the 14th century. If you have access to a hire vehicle, then another idea is to follow the coastal roads for a few hours, where you will discover picturesque bays and traditional fishing villages.
Your holiday in San Carrio is likely to be blessed by excellent weather, especially if you visit during the summer months. Expect daytime highs of 30 degrees during the hottest months of July and August, and even the chillier days at this time will rarely see the temperature dip below 20 degrees. Don’t worry about rain during this time, as it is highly unlikely that there will be any. Some people choose to book their holiday rental villa in Son Carrio during the winter months. The weather is milder then, but there is the chance of some storms. The coldest months of December and January can still see daytime highs of 15 degrees, whilst at night it does dip below 10 degrees on occasion. Still much warmer than the UK at comparable times of year!
The main airport in Majorca is just outside of the capital city of Palma (PMI). During the summer months, this is actually one of the busiest airports in Europe, and as such, has connections virtually everywhere. British Airways fly out of Birmingham (BHX), easyJet fly out of London Stansted (STN) and Ryanair fly out of Manchester (MAN). Of course, there are many other options as well
