Eat & Drink
Try Ca’s Xorc’s signature paella at lunchtime and dine at night on the inventive dishes conjured up by talented head chef Guillermo Moya Igarza, in which local specialities are the star. Opt for the à la carte or the six course tasting menu, set off by an extensive Mallorcan and Spanish wine list.
Imaginative dishes include carpaccio of Sóller prawns with rocket salad and pesto, ricotta icecream and shaved parmesan, and tataki of tuna served with fig marmalade and soy sauce. Finish off with four kinds of chocolate or maybe pineapple soup with coconut icecream. Be sure to book your table well in advance, they get snapped up very quickly.
Breakfast is served until 11am, either in the farmhouse kitchen with its open fireplace, or out on the sunny terrace. The spread includes delicious juices, cheeses and home-baked breads.
Available any time.
See & Do
Spend a morning exploring Sóller – you can even walk there along the leafy Deia-Sóller footpath – and board the old wooden train for a ride to Palma. You can also take boat trips along the coast from here. A tram trundles along the seafront, where you can enjoy the evening passaeo.
The pretty village of Deia – made famous by the writer Robert Graves, who penned I, Claudius while living there – is still something of an artists’ colony. You can walk down the rocky path leading to a pebbly cove far below, where there’s good snorkelling and a couple of little beach cafes. Much-visited Fornalutx is another pretty spot in the Sóller valley. Of course, you may simply want to laze by the pool with a couple of paperbacks.
Book an aromatherapy massage and bliss out by the pool.
