On the popular Spanish island of Mallorca, farmhouse inns focus more on providing isolation and quietness than offering hands-on farming experiences. With millions of visitors descending on the beaches of Mallorca and the other Balearic Islands each summer, a little bit of isolation is a good thing for solitude-seeking travelers. Mainly located in the hills of inland Mallorca, these inns range from rustic century-old farmhouses to luxury bed-and-breakfasts with spas and swimming pools. Some of Mallorca's best agriturismos sit in the middle of orange or fig groves and offer fresh, local food to guests, often serving dishes made from ingredients grown on-site.
