Ni­cola Bates,

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Miles walked this month: 74 The sum­mer hol­i­day took us to Mal­lorca, and with my part­ner and kids off moun­tain bik­ing I de­cided to go walk­ing. The GR221 route in Mal­lorca never dis­ap­points, and this year saw a pleas­ant 27 de­grees – with patchy cloud and a lovely breeze – so I em­barked upon walk­ing be­tween Port Soller and Deia. The route starts in Port Soller with a steep up­hill to La Muleta Refuge and light­house, which is largely con­crete be­fore the cob­bled trails en­sue. The 10km route is truly stun­ning, run­ning be­tween the sea on one side, steep moun­tains on the other and wind­ing through vine­yards and farm­land. And what bet­ter way to cel­e­brate on reach­ing the other end, than with a glass of San­gria Cava! Cheers! Note to self: Hol­i­days needn’t just be for sit­ting down and re­lax­ing by the pool – there’s walk­ing to be had, too.
