Discover Mallorca

bàlitx d'avall

We discovered more of Mallorca this weekend by hiking 35+ kilometers through the Serra Tramontana and staying overnight at Bàlitx d'Avall in the Torrent de na Mora. The agroturismo finca & its anchoring tower were built in 1200 AD and are nestled into the olive trees and the tranquil valley where the family farms & tends the land.

On day 1, we hiked from Mirador Ses Barques to Bàlitx d'Avall and then through the coll to crest the top for a stunning sea view. We were rewarded with a dinner of local lamb braised all day in the oven with local Macia Batle wine and then followed by hierbas de Mallorca

The four of us (plus a cute pup) slept in the tower, which dates back to 1200 AD. A wood burning fireplace kept us warm all night, and the sounds of the finca's chickens & sheep woke us up early enough to see the fog lifting out of the valley. We continued back through the mountains on to Port de Soller where we finished out our weekend of hiking, exhausted but content.
