City Break in Palma de Mallorca With the Whole Family.

Co-founder of Vesle, Trude, and her family of five fell in love with Palma this summer. – This was our last stop before going home and we had the best time. Palma was a beautiful city that we really want to come back to, both as a family and for a long weekend just me and hubby.

This is us (well, minus me): Espen, Vetle (9 yrs old), Oda (6 yrs old) and Snorre (8 yrs old).

We loved the old, narrow streets of Palma. You could get lost looking at all the pretty buildings.

Make sure you stop for cold drinks and ice cream as often as you can...

Vetle enjoys the pretty view from our hotel.

The whole family love tapas and Palma is filled with great cafées and restaurants!. We found a couple of great places (Taverna de la Boveda) in the old city. What's so great about tapas is that there is something for everyone, you just can't go wrong.

We stayed at the cutest little family owned hotel, Palau Sa Font, it was tucked away in the old town. We loved the organic breakfast that was served every morning (the kids went crazy for all the food) and the lovely staff made us felt so welcome (yes, with three kids). The hotel also had a small swimming pool which was great after a day in the hot city.

Yummy Spanish breakfast...

With dessert every morning...

The kids loved the pool and so did we!.

We didn't really go all in for shopping on this trip, but we managed to stumble upon a few good shops and the kids got their toy fix.

Out and about with the kids...

It was really hot when we visited (about about 38 degrees celsius) so finding a great beach was a must, and we did. The closest is Playa De Palma in the city but we wanted to discover a little bit more so we rented a car and drove to this amazing beach called Platja Es Trenc, this took us about 30 minutes from Palma city and it was so worth it.

In the afternoon, when it's a bit cooler, go find a playground. Palma is actually full of them. We brought snacks and drinks and stayed for hours.

Bye bye Palma, see you again soon!.
