Ca’s Curial | Mallorca, Spain

Another Europe post.  I promise I’m almost done and then NO MAS.  But I wanted to share Ca’s Curial, an agroturismo destination in Soller, Mallorca.

It’s picturesque, no?

The hotel is located just beyond downtown Soller, in a mountain valley, surrounded by a citrus grove.

And when you have a citrus grove, you have fresh OJ for breakfast, lunch, and din-din.  Breakfast on the patio was my favorite.

The grounds were beautiful.  Lemons, oranges, stone pathways lined with rosemary.

I was Señora Optimism with my wide brim hat and swimsuit on, ready to sit by the pretty pool.  But the clouds decided to rain on my parade.  Oh well, I got a few good pages read in my book before the first raindrops fell.

The room was comfy and clean and the perfect place to listen to rain through the open windows and drift off to sleep.  Naps…my decadent vacation treat!

Everyone at Ca’s Curial was very friendly and accommodating.  They whipped up a vegan dinner for me one evening when seafood was on the menu.  And, the day before we were to check out, I asked for the whereabouts of a local laundromat, and they offered to take our dirty laundry to wash for us.  They delivered our clothes the next morning, fresh and clean!

We definitely wished we had booked more days here and less at our other destinations.  We’re kinda obsessed with Mallorca now and can’t get back there fast enough!
