What makes this tour special
Few places can boast they were a source of inspiration for one of humanity’s greatest musicians, yet the claim holds for the small village of Valldemossa, nestled in the heart of the north Mallorcan mountains, where Polish composer Frederick Chopin once found retreat. During this full day tour you’ll discover the landscape that could inspire symphonies, and the picturesque coastal towns which epitomise the quiet beauty of Mallorca.
After being collected from Palma in your private air-conditioned vehicle, you’ll drive north through the stunningly scenic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. A UNESCO world heritage site, you’ll glimpse ancient agricultural terraces and farms as you wind your way up these peaks to Valldemossa.
Rising enchantingly out of this lush hillside, Chopin spent the winter of 1838 in this beautiful village with his illicit lover, french writer George Sands. Your tour will visit the impressive Carthusian monastery where they lived; the piano Chopin composed on still resides here, and his melodies can be heard daily playing through the cloisters. Take a step back in time as you explore these cobblestoned streets with your knowledgeable guide, where flowers line the walls of traditional stone houses, still standing after more than 400 years.
Your tour will then continue deeper into the spectacular Mallorcan countryside, passing the idyllic village of Deia as you drive towards the valley of Soller, famed for its orange and lemon groves. Arriving in the charming Port of Soller, you’ll have the chance to enjoy lunch along its picturesque horse-shoe shaped harbour, with spectacular views of the mountains and the sea.
Journeying on to the main town of Soller, you’ll find an old and atmospheric town, best known for its vintage transportation. The wooden Soller train has been in operation for over a century, and riding it has become one of the most popular activities on the island. After visiting the often overlooked Miro and Picasso exhibitions within the station, you’ll journey back to Palma using this characteristic mode of transport, ending your tour with a breathtaking vision of the island.
