The real Majorca
The southeast of the island consists of a gently rolling landscape with small, romantic bays – “Calas” – typical villages, almond and fruit groves as well as fields and farm land. Less developed for tourism than other areas of the island, here you will find a tranquil, unspoilt coastline. If you want to get away from the mad rush of everyday life and relax and enjoy some peace and quiet, then this is the right place for you!
Amongst peaceful little villages lies the picturesque town of Santanyí, a delightful place with a variety of small restaurants and shops. Wednesdays and Saturdays are market days. You should not miss out on the vibrant hustle and bustle!
A day in Santanyi
9:00 The day begins with a relaxing yoga class followed by a healthy breakfast in the wonderful Cal Reiet. This is exactly where you should be! Even if you are not a guest of the hotel, you can enjoy regular and relaxing breaks from the hectic pace of everyday life. A place where togetherness is celebrated!
11:00 The Galería Barceló is an oasis for those looking for old tiles, fancy antiques and accessories from all over the world, as well as stylish items for the garden or Moroccan elements for the home. The mish-mash of wonderful things makes it fun to look around. At the Galería Sailer you’ll find Eastern and Western contemporary art, pre-Columbian textiles, antique kilims, modern paintings, sculptures and glass items. Franz Sailer is a specialist in his field and sometimes “sings” an aria, as he used to be a well-known opera singer.
13:00 A little further down you will reach the East26, Lucie Hauri’s new multipurpose centre. She opened with her real estate office closely followed by Carola and Jörg Brinkmöller’s design shop, Koyo Interior, and the Iria Degen branch office for furnishing and planning, run by interior designer, Sibylle Schaller, and product designer, Pascal Schaller, who are constantly creating new home accessories from local materials. Physical wellbeing is also catered to at the East26, a popular venue for those who like to enjoy a meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
15:00 Now let’s go to the secluded beach of “Cala Mondragó” for a short nap or a swim in the turquoise sea. Nearby the organic luxury olive oil, ‘Olí de Santanyí’, is produced which can be bought at the wine shop in the Restaurant Laudat in Santanyí, as well as elsewhere.
19:30 For a stunning end to a wonderful day, you should enjoy an aperitif followed by dinner at the Restaurant Laudat. You can choose between the patio with its wonderful Mediterranean charm or three pleasant, tastefully decorated rooms inside. Miguel Laudat pampers his guests with newly interpreted Majorcan cuisine and an exquisite selection of wines.
