A fantastic hotel in a beautiful spot

Mallorca update. We grew depressed by the chav-special seaside resort we were located in and so we moved to a new place on the north coast. It turned out to be a beautiful 4-star hotel, but alas slap bang in the middle of more of the same - an over-developed resort with lots of English pubs and restaurants boasting that they had English chefs and owners. So we moved agin, this time inland to a beautiful village, Moscari, set in rolling hills and totally undeveloped.

The hotel we are in is utterly beautiful: a tastefully renovated old building with a fantastic restaurant and a couple of pools. It's quiet, tranquil and soothing. We are happy again. Last night we had a fantastic four course meal washed down with a couple of bottles of Macia Batle Blanc de Blancs 2007, which is a really nice, full flavoured white.

Glad you finally managed to get away from the Brits Jamie.
Incredible how your average Brit overseas only wants to eat rubbish english junk food and mix with their own kind.

Believe it or not, not only do we recognise the place from the photo but where also there this morning in Moscari, Mallorca.

Great place and last weeks visit to Macia Batle's wine estate prove that they have some good wines coming onto the market this year.

Both very good choices

It's a bit depressing, actually, seeing the state of these resort towns. It's just so ugly.

Sky blue- I guess it's a small world!

Surprisingly, the kids liked it too, although i don't think they could have done a whole week there
