Words cannot express my group’s experience at Son Viguet! From the very beginning, our host was exceptionally helpful in helping us plan our cycling trip to Mallorca. Then, upon arrival, we were met by the friendly property manager who helped us familiarize ourselves with the vinca and settle in. But first, we collectively had our breath taken away by the gorgeous vistas that Son Viguet presents. Perched majestically 3.5kms from Andratx, your gaze follows then down to Puerto Andratx, then finally to the Mediterranean. As whole, the site line spellbindingly captivates you. Son viguet is everything the pictures show it to be. It is an oasis of calm, quiet and reflection. Everything you need for trip of a lifetime is there or can be had in the adjoining towns and villages. Our tips: Car Rental – Use Record Go and buy the express line option – this is crucial to starting your vacation off right. Do not do this any other way, you will regret it! Bike Rental – we used Procycle Hire out of Puerto de Palenca. Bikes were great, but they no longer deliver. I would look elsewhere. Restaurants – you must try Bar Nou in Es Capdella (4km), Ca’n Torrat in Calvia (6km) – the best shoulder of lamb, bar none, on the island! Pizza at the Andratx town square, El Pescador in Sant Elm – you get the finest sunsets in Mallorca thrown in for free. Bar M-46 in Sant Joan if you get out there. Cafe Bellavista in Banyalbufar for lunch if you’re doing the classic 60. And finally Mallorca Cafe Peleton in Can Pastilla (really the beach of Palma just east of the airport) – aimed towards the cycling fraternity with bike racks inside (perfect!). Talk to John the proprietor and tell him the Spirit of the Journey from Canada sent you and you will be well taken care of. I can only say that we were collectively saddened by the prospect of our leaving. If there is a cycling paradise, this is it!
