Harvest Time In Mallorca

- Autumn Festivals with Mallorca Farmhouses -


As summer draws to a close but temperatures remain warm, the fields and hills of Mallorca grow ripe with fruits and crops ready for harvest. A relaxed time to visit this sunny isle, luxury accommodation specialist Mallorca Farmhouses recommends a host of interesting food festivals to discover, from grape crushing competitions, to a black pudding festival and local agricultural fairs. What’s more prices start from just £630 per week.

Wine Festival in Binissalem - Cal Rei Petit (sleeps six)

Held between 21-28 September, La Festa des Vermar is the annual grape harvest festival. Drawing crowds from across the island, see parades, grape-crushing and wine-tasting competitions. There are traditional musicians and puppeteers, fire-running and an exciting (rather messy) grape battle in a nearby field.

Stay just a drive away in Cal Rei Petit. Sleeping six, the villa has a private pool and spacious gardens, a stone-built BBQ and dining terrace. Bikes are available on request. Spend seven nights from 21 September for £993 (£166 per person).

Fiesta of Black Pudding in St Joan - Xanet Katy (sleeps six)

Held on the first Sunday of October, the Fiesta Torrada d’es Borifarro (Festival of Black Pudding) in Saint Joan is a must for foodies. Dedicated to the locally-made black pudding and other Mallorcan delicacies such as pork Sobrassada (cured paprika sausage) and Butifarrones (spiced pork sausage), visitors should go with an empty stomach!

Stay a scenic drive away at Xanet Katy in Pollenca. This three-bedroom country villa affords beautiful views across open countryside to the impressive Tramuntana mountain range. Its 12m private pool is surrounded by lawns and a furnished sun terrace. Spend seven-nights from 5 October for £1,177 (£197 per person).

Inca Agricultural Fair - Finca Peric (sleeps four)

Great for families, Mallorca’s most important agricultural fair takes place between 19-27 October. Expect livestock and craft markets, horse shows, traditional dancing, acrobatics and fire displays. Many of the stall holders wear traditional dress while straw bales and ancient farming tools are scattered in the streets.

Stay just 30 minutes away in a pretty two-bedroom farmhouse close to Pollenca. Finca Peric sleeps four and is ideal for small families seeking a rural retreat. Features include a private pool, a lawn for children to play and nearby walking and cycling. Spend seven nights from 19 October for £630 (£156 per person).

All prices include a maid service, starter pack and FREE wi-fi. For further information and bookings, contact Mallorca Farmhouses on 0845 800 8080 or visit www.mallorca.co.uk
