Stay in your dream holiday villa in Lluc
Lluc is justifiably famous around the globe for the Monestir de Nostra Senora de Lluc, the Monastery of Our Lady of Lluc.
Nestling snugly in a beautiful north Mallorcan valley overlooking the Tramuntana mountains, the monastery attracts people from far and wide, and the area around Lluc is in large demand as a special place in which to rent holiday accommodation in Mallorca.
The imposing Lluc monastery itself dates from the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. However, the original monks settled here after the re-conquest of Mallorca in the thirteenth century.
The Romans also venerated the place naming it “Lucus”, Latin for “sacred forest”, due to the place already being of deep spiritual significance to prehistoric Mallorcan peoples.
The Lluc monastery is a fabulous place to visit. Choirs perform daily in the basilica; there is an interesting monastery museum and a fascinating collection of Mallorcan art.
If you are feeling active, take a hike up the Cami dels Misteris del Rosari, an ancient pilgrims’ footpath that reaches up the hilly terrain from the monastery.
There are some delightful gardens for you to enjoy too. The Jardi Botanic is full of local and exotic plants, waterfalls, ponds, petite bridges, and a windmill.
If you fancy escaping from the kitchen of your holiday villa, it comes as no surprise that the monastery has an excellent restaurant, Sa Fonda. It’s located in a lovely renovated old hall with marble pillars and wide stone arches. (According to the locals you can eat the best
lamb in the mountains and drink the purest water in Lluc!). There are also a few cafes in the vicinity, if you just prefer a snack.
Lluc is a walkers’ paradise. Indeed hiking becomes more and more popular here every year, particularly in the spring and autumn months.
The foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range surrounding Lluc are beautiful. There are clearly marked walking trails as well as a number of well-placed hikers’ hostels. Guided hikes from specialists are available and there are several island-based walking groups.
For those who have a head for heights, the area around Lluc has some of the best known peaks in Mallorca including the Puig de Massanella, the Puig de Tomir, the Puig d'en Galileu and the Puig Roig. There are also some fascinating caves and dry river beds worth exploring.
Cycling is very popular too, especially because Sir Bradley Wiggins regularly trains here! Or if you just fancy lazing on the beach, a main road links Lluc with the golden sands of the Bay of Alcudia. You can also catch a bus.
So whether you’re looking to rent a fabulous holiday villa for family and friends, or a lovely old townhouse for a well-earned romantic break, we at Balearic Villas would be happy to help you find your dream rental property in the Lluc area.
After all, with years of experience, vast local knowledge and a wide range of luxury holiday villas, townhouses and apartments available to rent, we are better placed than most to ensure you enjoy the holiday of a lifetime.
