‘The light finally starts to go down, so we go to the beach to swim and hang out on the sand’
12pm: check inWe arrive at our room, put our things down and take a minute to observe the stunning views from our window, which faces out onto the Balearic sea.
1pm: House tourNext, we walk through the whole House, taking in every detail. The art, in particular, caught our eye – especially the painted ping-pong racquets. The House entrance was also a highlight. As soon as you enter, you see this huge window that looks out onto the sea.
2pm: tapas for lunchWe couldn’t wait to try the tapas, so we order some of the daily specials. We chose sardines, which were incredibly tasty, accompanied by two very Spanish tapas dishes: pimientos del padrón and jamón.
4pm: siestaAfter lunch, we head back to the room for a little siesta. My sister takes a short nap in our room while I edit some photos.
6pm: sunset on the sandBy now, the light finally starts to go down, so we go to the beach to swim and hang out on the sand.

11pm: bedtimeWe’re tired after our day in the sun, so we hop into bed before midnight.
‘We learn how to make the one and only Spanish paella with heaps of fresh seafood. Believe it or not, it tastes even better than it looks’
