With the enormous success of the grand opening of our hotel last month, we want to carry on this momentum into what is sure to be a glorious summer here at Son Julia Country House & Spa. As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, we speed rapidly towards the peak holiday season here on Mallorca but before we enjoy those scorching summer days we want to take time to enjoy one of the best months on the island of Mallorca.

For those we welcome to our Boutique Hotel in Llucmajor this April we can only try and help you fit as much or as little into your holiday as you desire because the month of April offers so much for the island visitor.

Enjoy the milder weather and explore the breathtaking Serra Tramuntana mountain range that scythes through the centre of the island. Perfect for a spot of hiking, there are a number of beautiful routes and nature trails in which to get lost in….however if the fear of getting lost is all too real, then at Son Julia we offer guided walks along some of the most beautiful tracks and paths.

Hiking routes Mallorca

If you prefer to swap the hiking boots for two wheels, then take advantage of the spring weather and the intense light and colour that spreads along those winding mountain roads before the busiest period for cycling arrives on the island in May. At Son Julia one can rent top of the range carbon bicycles for use during your stay. Due to Mallorca’s popularity when it comes to cycling, we offer those fanatical about getting out on the open road a 7 night cycling package as one of our special offers.

Alternatively why not make the most of this golfers paradise. Drag yourself away from the beaches or your luxury 5-star hotel suite and work your way round 18 holes on one of the 24 world class golf courses found on the island. Son Julia is located just 5 minutes from two 18 hole golf courses and offers up to 10% off green fees on some of the top courses on the island, such as Son Gual, which happens to be the longest and one of the most demanding courses on the island.

Of course perhaps the biggest event, not only on the island but within Spain during the month of April is that of Holy week or ‘Semana Santa’ and the Easter celebrations. Come and see the rituals and processions that take place all over the island. Visit Palma de Mallorca for the most famous of celebrations on the island. Here thousands line the streets to watch the processions of the parish brotherhoods or ‘cofradias’ that process through the city streets. One of the most fascinating and intimidating aspects of the march is the traditional dress of penitential robes and conical hoods. Religious statues are carried on heavy platforms, to the accompaniment of music. This procession marks the beginning of Holy week and is followed by more reenactments and processions over the weekend.

Holy Week Mallorca

At Son Julia we encourage guests to come and celebrate and experience the traditions in what is Spain’s most religious festival. So come and celebrate Easter with us! On the 16th of April kids can start the day by exploring the beautiful arabic style gardens, searching for chocolate treats on our very own organised easter egg hunt. After we would like to invite you to our traditional Easter brunch. The brunch will be a buffet style, consisting of delectable dishes prepared by head chef Roberto Diez from around the world, followed by typical Mallorcan desserts. This will all be enjoyed from our stunning terrace overlooking the vineyard with a complimentary glass of cava. Book now for a gastronomic experience you won’t forget.

However it is not just Easter Sunday we want you to celebrate here in Llucmajor. We are also offering a 5 night Easter package deal, which includes everything you need to fully enjoy this stunning 15th century luxury manor house. The offer includes bed and breakfast for the duration of your entire stay, one dinner for two people at the top Las Bovedas Restaurant, a car to use during your holiday with us and an invitation to the previously mentioned Easter brunch. This deal is only available from 08-04-2017 until 17-04-2017.

So whatever you do, don’t wait for summer, take advantage of a destination like Mallorca this spring and come and experience a variety of activities, traditions and cultural experiences and mouthwatering meals and desserts like no other and allow us at Son Julia make your holiday complete with exclusive luxury and a service.
