WHERE WE ARE
 
 
 
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands off mainland Spain’s Mediterranean Coast. Enjoying over 300 days of unbroken sunshine a year Majorca has become a firm favourite with the British holiday maker. Palma Airport is on the eastern side of the city. That and a new motorway opened spring '05 mean Cala D’or is now less than 40 minutes from the Airport. The first time visitor will find the new roads and well signed route a breeze to navigate.

Situated on the south eastern coast of Majorca, Cala D’or has offered sheltered anchorage to seafarers for centuries. It is hardly surprising therefore that the elegant marina has prospered and continues to attract some of the finest yachts in the med both voyaging and those with a permanent berth.

This has given rise to a large number of fine restaurants that cater for every taste and purse, together with some rather up-market shops. The Cala D’or yacht club is the latest addition to the marina, a stylish building particularly when light up at night.

The complex itself nestles between two of the many delightful coves in this quiet area. All the amenities, stylish bars, restaurants and shops of Cala Egos are all within easy walking distance as are the beautiful beaches of Des Pou, Es Forti, and Cala Egos. Cala D'or town centre and the elegant Marina are also an easy amble from the apartment.

Cala D'Or is a delightful villa resort. The town centre, a short stroll from the marina has numerous restaurants and bars to tempt. From Chinese and Indian cuisine to locally caught fresh fish platters’, and of course the Spanish love their meat dishes. With a few clubs open till all hours there is something here for every age group, making it an ideal destination for all the family.
