Explore Mallorca on the Back of a Vespa

written by | Posted on May 4th, 2011

La Residencia, an Orient-Express property located in Mallorca, Spain, is offering guests a brand-new way to explore the island—this summer, the property will introduce a pair of Vespas available for rent.

Armed with maps provided by the hotel’s concierge, guests can follow itineraries that will take them either down to the beach for a relaxing day by the sea or, for those feeling more adventurous, routes can be mapped leading guests around the hillsides flecked with olive and citrus groves, and boasting fantastic views of Mallorca. Couples looking for a romantic getaway can visit Banyalbufar, a small town on the edge of the island that has magnificent views of the coast. Also just a short ride away is the town of Soller and the beautiful village of Fornalutx, which is home to fragrant orange and lemon groves.

And to ensure guests don’t go hungry during their adventures, La Residencia has accessorized the Vespas with baskets, ideal for bringing along a pre-packed picnic to enjoy en-route. The cost of renting out a single Vespa for a full day is $80 and $63 for a half day.
