1/5  Get arty in Mallorca

To immerse the kids in a world of Mallorcan art and culture, take them to Belmond La Residencia, a beautiful boutique hotel on Mallorca’s peaceful north-west coast.

The hotel is situated in the charming coastal and mountain village of Deià, which was once home to English poet Robert Graves and still attracts and inspires many artists and writers. On the grounds you'll find Spain’s largest sculpture gardens, while in the recently renovated kids’ club, younger guests can take an art or pottery workshop, cook with chef Guillermo, or take a tour with Alba the donkey.

For mums and dads, there’s an opportunity to explore the region’s cultural treasures by Vespa, hike in the hills, or simply let the hotel pack a picnic on one of its resident donkeys, amble up into the ancient terraces and enjoy a Mallorcan feast with an unforgettable view. The little village is blissfully tranquil, but just a 40 minute drive away is the island’s bustling capital city, Palma.

Getting there: Mallorca is less than three hours by plane from London, and easily accessible from Madrid and Barcelona. Palma International Airport is a 45-minute drive from Belmond La Residencia.

Price: Seven nights cost from £5,590 for a family of four, including breakfast, flights and transfers, with Tots Too.
