Mallorca. The largest of the Balearic Islands and the star of the Mediterranean. Blessed with stunning natural beauty; a dramatic coastline, azure sea, almond and olive groves, miles of vineyards and postcard-pretty towns, it welcomes millions of visitors every year.
While many holidaymakers land at Palma's Son Sant Joan Airport and make a direct transfer to the nearest stretch of sea and sand, Mallorca is home to dozens of lesser-explored secluded coves and wild calas.
Here are five stunning spots off the beaten path
Chapter-to-chapter, cover-to-cover, under the shade of a palm tree with a cool drink in hand…that slightly beats scanning a few pages of your new book on the morning commute doesn't it?
Holidays are a great excuse to buy a new book and escape into the latest fiction. We've compiled five of our favourite reads this summer.
Sicily. The lush and verdant island, off the south-west coast of Italy, is a melting pot of culture. It has absorbed influences from its many invaders, including the Greeks, Arabs, Normans and Spanish, and is home to some of the world's finest fusions of architecture, agriculture and food.
The land is blessed with a warm climate and produces an abundance of crops including citrus fruits, tomatoes, nuts, grapes and olives.
We share a recipe for a traditional Sicilian salad…easy to whip up and even easier to eat!
Willkommen in Berlin; the German city where glamour meets grunge

We can't promise you won't leave wanting more, but we will share with you how we'd spend two days in town. Milli, the Club's Local Concierge in Berlin, picks the city's hotspots...
From around 750 BC, the Greeks arrived in the promised land of Sicily. Along with Hellenic language, mythology and architecture, settlers imported olive trees which have yielded some of the world's finest olive oil ever since.
Thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate, Sicily's olive trees generate oil that accounts for over 10% of Italy's production. It is no surprise that the olive is one of the most important agricultural products on the island and features in countless Sicilian dishes.
Most farmers harvest by hand and there is a growing number of organic oils being produced on the island…
"You'd have a hard time finding anything better than Barcelona for food, as far as being a hub." - Anthony Bourdain
