Fortunately, my friend had a few contacts holidays by your former Mallorca and so we got a really great offer for 10 days in August and the best it was already slightly more expensive than at a hotel was but rest and relaxation that I alone got through the estate there were the extra value loose! The price was even a car included, with which you could explore the island after their own ideas. You could in the evening in the port continue to eat freshly caught fish or just have a picnic on the beach. It was really beautiful and the party people we got with nothing. Of course, Finca Mallorca is more expensive than a package holiday which you made with 17 years so a holiday in one. But throughout the year it is also finally work also times something like this yourself. I hope the an or other got looking for Mallorca, I’ll definitely still the island visit often.
