This is also due to their loyal and hardworking staff who do help to make this a holiday for you and your guests.
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]

My only Critique is that the Chef cooks the garlic a tad too much for the 5 pepper beef, and I would love it is he read this and did not toast them that much, possibly tossing it all in a wok to mix it up and the garlic may stick to the Deep fried beef more, and not enough of the 5 peppers was added to our dish tonight. The menu said Pan fried, but it is deep fried, but the beef is very tender.

We stayed at the villa for two weeks in August. We went as two families who are still really good friends!!! We pulled up outside and decided we must have the wrong place as it was a castle! It is very clean and very well equipped. It is obviously a well loved, lived in family holiday home.The beds were very comfy and the air con a must in August. The pool was an amazing 32 degrees and it was lovely to swim in the evening with the lights on. A car is a must. We fished from a boat (and shopped at the markets!) for our supper. Seafood, and fresh fruit and veg are a foodies dream. We all love to shop and cook and spend time together so was our ideal holiday. Loads of games and books so you won't need to take any. We had such an amazing time we have booked to go back next year already. Thankyou Noel and Sue we are counting down the days! … see more

Roughly halfway between Topeka and Kansas City along I-70, Lawrence is just far enough away from both neighbors to have its own unique identity. The University of Kansas is the city’s most conspicuous feature, and Lawrence is undeniably a college town. As a result, the community has a distinctly cosmopolitan vibe, with a robust academic population, thriving arts and entertainment scene, and strong downtown nightlife.
"Ten friends and one bambino enjoying the delights of Villa Santoro - what more could we ask for? This amazing place has the real ‘wow’ factor, we’ve really enjoyed relaxing, swimming, drinking gallons of vino, eating like kings, laughing, pool games, siestas in the afternoons, cooking on the barbecue, making the most of the space and relaxing atmosphere. We visited Cisternino and Martina Franca markets, tasted amazing pecorino and bought kilos of fresh local fruit and vegetables.We dined at Bel Italia in Cisternino, tucked into pizzas in Martina Franca, visited vineyards and olive groves and had several walks in the lanes around the villa picking wild blackberries on the way. It has been 'trulli trulli amazing'."

Baron Group Malta was the brain child of two young Gozitan entrepreneurs with a passion for architecture and, above all, the island of Gozo. Their dream was to transmit the architectural heritage left by our forefathers for our generation and future ones, plus foreigners from around the world, to enjoy and appreciate such a rich culture which distinguishes our small island. We offer unique accommodations and the possibility to flavour the Gozitan way of living.
