Its central position on the island means that Finca Son Jorbo is in an ideal position to explore the many delights of Mallorca. It is just half an hour from the airport and has easy access to the south-east coast where many of the best beaches are to be found including the well known beach at Es Trenc (20 mins).
The local town of Porreres is said to be the most Mallorcan town in Mallorca, unspoilt by tourism, it has a number of bars and cafés in the recently pedestrianised main street and square, several of which also offer food. The church has an air of faded splendour and is the second largest on the island after the cathedral in Palma. Outside the town, the monastery of Monti Sion offers views across the town and towards the sea. Tuesday is market day when the town really comes alive. There is an ecological fair in the spring, a huge autumn fair and in August the fiesta of San Roc when everybody, old and young alike party non-stop for 7 days!
There are numerous ports and marinas including Cala Figuera, Porto Petro and Cala D’Or where you can take a coffee while watching the local fishing boats or dream of owning a multi-million pound yacht.
The island’s capital, Palma (35 mins) has something for everyone with its bustling streets, great shops, restaurants, galleries and museums. Every town has a weekly market and fiestas take place across the island throughout the year.
If you feel energetic you can discover what else the island has to offer including walking, horse riding, bird watching and golf. We also have a couple of bikes that you can borrow. Alternatively, relax by the pool and help yourself to the “honesty bar”.
Car hire is essential if you are staying at Finca Son Jorbo. There are many car hire companies on the island and a search on the internet will produce lots of choices. Beware that many companies charge you for a full tank of petrol at inflated prices and tell you to bring it back empty, however unless you are here for more than a week or plan to do a lot of driving then you may find it difficult to use it all.
