Summer is finally upon us! This month as we celebrate the official start of summer with the summer solstice on the 21st of June we can look forward to our summer holidays, relaxing days off work and trips abroad. So assuming that wonderful service, an incredible wealth of untouched beaches to explore and a delicious and unique cuisine is what you are looking for from your 2018 summer holiday then Son Julia Country House & Spa is the perfect place to stay.
Our 5-star Boutique Hotel in Llucmajor boasts 1 indoor pool and 2 outdoor pools, one of which being more than 25 metres long and offering 50 sun-beds to relax on. It’s located next to the Apaganto Bistro which opened last month and offers guests a delectable variety of dishes and snacks, our fresh gazpacho, the delicious Son Julia Burger or fresh fish of the day. Also we will be starting our Live music performances on the terrace during the summer months every Thursday and Saturday, making this the place to be on those warm summer evenings.
Here at Son Julia we are very proud of our reputation of being one of the finest restaurants in Majorca in the form of Las Bovedas Restaurant which is run by the extremely talented Roberto Diez and combines fresh local produce and recipes with an Asian twist. Gastronomy in Majorca has come a long way and the changes that have taken place enhance the traditional expertise of chefs with a wealth of experience such as Roberto who from a young age had learnt to cook at home with his mother and family. He got his first professional contact with ‘the world of being a chef’ when he carried out his army service as a cook in 1996 and from then has gone from strength to strength and become one of the top chefs in this region. Since Majorca is known for its wonderful culture and since we are proud of its own special cuisine that includes some truly unforgettable dishes, we wanted to provide you with one of our favourite recipes which you can try at the hotel, created by the experts and possible for you to recreate at home, with our help and guidance.
The dish below of grilled octopus with candied potato and olive cream sauce and crispy olive garnish is one of our favourite starters from the updated Las Bovedas menu and was chosen by our top chef himself. So give it a try and let us know how you fared when turning your hand to gourmet cuisine.
With good food always on the menu at the biggest celebration in Majorca we couldn’t forget to mention that this month is the time to celebrate the unique celebration of San Juan here on Majorca and enjoy an unforgettable experience! On the night of the 23rd of June, the locals swarm to the beaches and coves to spend a fun filled night of good food, good company and big celebrations. Celebrated every year the tradition involves burning a list of the things you would like to change this coming year and sending it out in the ocean. After this people tend to enjoy a midnight swim and continue the partying until the early hours. So pack your picnic because new experiences are what we live for, and there are plenty to be had with the Son Julia experience.
