Majorca is well-loved holiday destination for walkers and cyclists from around the world who come to explore the foothills of the quiet and peaceful Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. There is a thriving cycling culture attracting both the pro teams and road cycling fanatics as well as people cycling for fun and exercise. Rugged mountain trails lead to remote valleys, while carefully signed routes give way to long-forgotten mule tracks and hidden [more] mountain passes. You might pass through sleepy villages, or find yourself on a clifftop gazing town at the turquoise sea. Coastal walks are popular, particularly up towards the Cap de Formentor on the North Easterly Coast of Mallorca. There are even people brave enough to walk or cycle up the hair-raising, twisty road that takes you to the top. If you are lucky you might see or hear some of the indigenous birds of the islands such as vultures, bee-eaters, Audouin's gulls, ospreys, night herons, Eleonara's falcons, scops owls or hoopoes!

Sample the taste of old Cyprus, either in the traditional way with agrotourism accommodation, which are quaint village houses, usually restored to a better standard than they were originally, or with a modern luxury villa built to look old with a swimming pool and panoramic views or perhaps an apartment on the shores of the sunny Mediterranean Sea.

Second home and holiday home owners used to be able to claim discounts in their council tax in the United Kingdom, as the property is vacant for much of the year. This is no longer true in many areas, including Carmarthenshire; if the property is empty (but furnished) no discount is permitted and the owner will be liable to pay the tax in full. But, In Cornwall, since 2004 second home owners can claim a 10% discount in their council tax. Prior to 2004, they could claim a 50% discount in Cornwall, they are still able to claim 50% in many other areas in England. The Welsh movement, Cymuned, promote the principle that owners of holiday homes should pay double the standard rate of council tax, as they do not otherwise invest in the local community. Testimony of this is to be seen in a report on the effect of holiday homes in Scotland, which found that those who went on holiday to Scotland spent an average of £57 a day, in comparison to just £32 a day spent by those visiting their holiday or second homes.

If you need a break from all this holiday relaxation in just an hour you can be in the island’s surprisingly sophisticated capital, Palma. Half of Majorca's 600,000 population live in this commercial and cultural centre, making the most of the rich history, culture and shopping. Most of the historic centre is traffic-free. You will find a lively cafe society reminiscent of Barcelona, as well as a thriving arts scene and stylish, sophisticated nightlife. [more] It is easy to spend a day drifting between shops, pavement cafés and museums. The city is dominated by La Seu Cathedral, a Gothic epic that took almost 400 years to build, on the site of a mosque and before that a Roman temple. Just to the east of the cathedral is a beach with a cycle path and promenade. For designer clothes try Jaume III, Palma’s equivalent to London’s Bond Street and for a superb choice of restaurants, head for the harbour. [less]
Baron Group Malta was the brain child of two young Gozitan entrepreneurs with a passion for architecture and, above all, the island of Gozo.

We offer unique accommodations and the possibility to flavour the Gozitan way of living.
