"In the past year, once again, dear guests found themselves in the warm embrace of Villa Sa Bateria on the beautiful island of Mallorca for the New Year's festivities. It's a time when the island takes on a unique, romantic charm.
The bustling tourist hotspots of Cala d'Or, Cala Millor, Alcudia, and more, are in their peaceful winter slumber, with doors closed until the arrival of spring. In the charming Mallorcan villages and small towns nearby, such as Felanitx, Calonge, S'Horta, Santanyi, and Portocolom, life moves at a relaxed, unhurried pace.
Many cosy local restaurants, like HPC and BABBO and many others in Portocolom, welcome guests even in winter, offering delightful New Year's menus that include the cherished Spanish tradition of sharing grapes at midnight.
In January, the island's natural beauty is on full display: the earthy browns of summer give way to lush "May green," adorned with bursts of yellow and white flowers. Toward the end of January, almond blossoms blanket the island in a delicate white coat. At no other time of year does Mallorca's natural beauty shine so abundantly.
The sea surrounding the island still carries hints of the warmth from summer and fall, and the gentle winter sun bathes the island in a soft, romantic light. The air temperature hovers around a comfortable 20 degrees Celsius, akin to a pleasant April day in northern Germany. It's ideal weather for leisurely hikes, even on mountain trails that were too hot to traverse in the summer. Other outdoor activities like tennis, golf, and cycling also thrive in Mallorca's early-year climate.
Villa Sa Bateria provides the perfect setting for a winter stay on Mallorca. It boasts central heating that ensures a cosy atmosphere year-round. The spacious garden and the open living room, overlooking the captivating bay of Portocolom and the historic old town, offer ample space for relaxation and reconnection.
For those seeking a bit more activity, the villa boasts its own fitness area, where you can enjoy some invigorating workouts. Alternatively, you can take a refreshing swim "for miles" in the heated indoor pool with sliding doors open to the garden. Of course, the outdoor pool and the inviting whirlpool are also available for your enjoyment in January.
For those who need to stay connected even during a relaxing getaway, Villa Sa Bateria offers a home office area with fast internet. From there, you can steal moments to gaze out at the bay and the harbour during your work breaks.
And should an unexpected need arise back home, the Palma airport, just 50 minutes away, offers numerous connections to mainland Europe even in winter. So, you can easily slip away for a few days and return swiftly to continue savouring the beauty of Mallorca in winter."
