Lloret de Vistalegre, in daily speak just Lloret, is a small and cozy village set in the rural countryside in the very heart of Mallorca. Lloret was up until the beginning of the 20th century a part of Sineu, but due to a growing congregation and rising income from agriculture the small community was allowed to separate themselves.
Lloret is not in any way affected by the mass tourism other destinations on the island experiences, although Mondays at the weekly market, the town fills up with curious visitors.
Lloret is home to the wonderful natural area of Sa Comuna, a wonderful scrubland full of Mediterranean vegetation and wildlife to fall in love with.
Lloret is the perfect place if you are looking to get away from tourism, mingle with locals and enjoy the tranquility of the rural Mallorcan countryside.
In the centre of the village you will find a good handful of local bars and cafeterias offering typical Spanish and Mediterranean dishes and refreshments.
Eating locally in Lloret means Sobrassada sausage with honey, Paella a la mallorquina, lamb chops, pork and various grilled vegetables.
Lloret is not a place listed in your typical tourist brochure, actually, Lloret isn't really listed many places. This is what makes Lloret such an exclusive rural escape, you have to go for a local holiday rental, like a finca or town flat in the village.
Staying in Lloret for the holiday, is a great choice if you want seclusion from city noise and stressful streets.
Lloret offers a varied and very scenic landscape to stroll around in. The local nature reserve of Sa Comuna just outside the village itself, is home to a variety of Mediterranean vegetation and wildlife, such as bird and rabbits. Sa Comuna used to be part of the property of the original farm that once made Lloret, where it served as a place for raising farm animals.
The es Pla region is characterized by its flat landscapes, with contrasting green hills and small mountains giving the roads some elevation. On top of these hills and mountains, it is not unusual to find old monasteries and excellent viewpoints offering breathtaking panoramic views overlooking the entire heart of Mallorca.
