Drive with lunch stop from Soller to Pollensa

We are driving from Soller to Pollensa old town on 1st Saturday in September.. We have booked a villa in Pollensa following 3 nights in a hotel in Soller... We cannot get into the villa untill 3pm so thought we would make a day trip of it before hopefully arriving in Soller in time to hopefully to do a supermarket shop pre arrival at villa.

Can any one suggest a nice road trip with somewhere to stop for a lunch.. We love traditional pretty villages etc.. ? visiting or vineyards.., historical places.... Fancied finding somewhere that does the traditional suckling pig or lamb???..

Any ideas?... Thanks

The only practical route is the Ma-10 from Soller to Pollenca, which goes through the Tramantura mountains. Not many villages but stunning scenery the whole way. It is not an easy drive = plenty of twists and turns, narrow road at times but not pot-holed as used for cycle races.

There are not that many restaurants en route but Es Vergenet at Cala Tuent is worth the excitement of the Sa Calobra OMG road. Stunning location with patio over the bay and great food. Booking essential.

Near Lluc there is an interesting restaurant - Es Guix which has a mountain water fed natural pool, which is b*****y cold but refreshing if a hot day.

Or you could have lunch at the cafeteria at Lluc Monastery. You won’t get suckling pig or lamb there I don’t think but it’s well worth a visit and you may as well see it on your way.

This is my favourite route from Soller to Pollensa which includes lovely villages and perhaps the best suckling pig on the island. Requires satnav, maps or good navigator (or all 3)

-Ma=11 - avoids the Soller tunnel, taking the old road over the mountain with views over most of the island.

Ma-2100 – Bunyola – Orient – Alaro

Ma-2110 - Lloseta

Ma-2113 – Biniamar

Ma-2114 – Selva

Ma-2131 – MoscariCampanet

Find by-road signposted to caves and Ses Fonts. Long rural road through beautiful valley and emerges on Ma-2200 by Pollensa.

Halfway up the mountain at Castell Alaro is perhaps the most rustic restaurant in Mallorca – Es Verger. It is a family farmhouse restaurant which is ‘challenging’ to reach but worth it. In my younger fitter days we would order the suckling pig or lamb and then climb the mountain path to the monastery and castle. Meal would be waiting for us on the way down.
