La Residencia

Mallorca, Spain

Tucked into the lush mountains of Mallorca’s northwest coast are 2 ivy-covered Spanish manor houses, patiently awaiting your arrival. Visitors to La Residencia can’t help but feel inspired by it all. Wander among the ground’s citrus groves, or make like a mermaid and relax by the swimming cove. For even greater inspiration, take a class taught by an artist- or sculptor-in-residence. Yes, the hotel has both. But first, get your creative juices flowing: have La Residencia’s leisure concierge arrange a donkey ride for you among the property’s olive terraces. If that’s not inspiration, what is?
