Hello! I'm finally posting some photos from our mini vacation to Mallorca for the 4th of July weekend. This year, I tried to book the same agriturismo (farm stay) as last year, but it was unavailable. So we ended up staying in Cala Santanyi (east coast) at Chalet Sa Roca Fesa right near a beach with climbing we love. We had a two bedroom apartment overlooking the sea, and loved it. I'd highly recommend the place, but the island is literally covered in amazing rentals and its hard to go wrong anywhere in Mallorca. Here are a few photos of our trip this year, if you'd like to see...
|We started our vacation in Memmingen, to hop on a cheap Ryan Air flight direct to Palma.|
|My 2 euro 2 sip ginger ale|
|The flight is just over 1.5 hours with views of the alps in every direction. Here is Mont Blanc.|
|Chalet Sa Roca Fesa. We stayed on the second floor.|
|Views from the Apartment|
|The perfect place to just sit and relax in the evenings with a nice view and the Tijuana climbing crag in the background.|
|Beaches make sleepy babes|

|The landlord of the chalet is an artist and there are paintings and sculptures all over the grounds.|

With two pools at the Chalet, we spent each evening and morning playing right at our place. The views were amazing and we had a grill right by the baby pool that made grilling out so easy and perfect with the kids! Loved having that little pool for Lily and Cooper. They played so well together in it for hours.
The beach of Cala Santanyi was only a 5 minutes walk down a steep hill. I didn't take our nice camera to the beach in fear of getting sand and salt water on it, but we used our iPhone to capture a few photos of our days. When we arrived the first day, the wind was crazy and the waves were HUGE. Cooper had so much fun jumping and dodging them.
|Both kids thought it was hilarious to be buried in the sand.|
|Cold showers to clean off endless sand.|
|Hiking through the National Park Mondrego after a day at the beach.|
|Dinner at the Beach. Couldn't ask for a more perfect location.|
|Ice cream or Popsicles every day!|
Perfect vacation really and so very needed. Beaches, pools, relaxing, pizza and ice cream. I'm ready to go back!
