Best for Escapists - Expert review of Petit Hotel La Victoria

Isolated refuge on the Cap d’es Pinar.

Occupying the first two floors of a gorgeous, honey-coloured stone hermitage - the Ermita de la Victoria - which dates back to the 1400s, this sweet little hostal is basically an upmarket refuge (hikers shelter). Its  extraordinary position on the clifftop of the Cap d'es Pinar makes it one of the most special spots on the island, yet very few people know of it, let alone venture up there. It’s a brilliant place to gather your thoughts, get back to basics and generally retreat from the rest of the world. It is not a place to come if you want to live it up.

Location: 

A clifftop perch with plenty of good hiking trails leading off from it. It's less than a kilometre from the secluded shingle beach of S’Illot, but it is a steep trek down.

Bedrooms: 

If you’re expecting bare-bones, monkish bedrooms think again. There are eight in total - all recently renovated, simply but comfortably furnished with sunlight streaming through the windows, buttermilk-coloured walls and exposed wood beams. Better still they are all centrally heated and have en-suite bathrooms. The silence meanwhile will ensure one of the best nights sleep you've had in a while.

Public areas: 

The hostal has a spacious, if sparsely decorated living room and a terrace with wonderful views. Sunsets here are particularly dazzling.

Eating and drinking: 

The restaurant specialises in hearty Mallorquín cooking (the kind of rib-sticking dishes that bring you back to life after a day of hiking), and top-notch rice dishes. It is shut on Mondays.

Service: 

Friendly, accomodating and full of good tips on hiking routes.
