It’s paradise—if you can stand it!
Gertrude Stein

That’s how Stein described Majorca to Sir Robert Graves, who lived out his final days there.

There’s no better way to get to know an island than by sea. THE REAL THING proposes that you let the waves rock you in a hidden cove and wake up to the virgin pine forests and impossibly turquoise waters; sail to Palma and discover its cathedral, which sits like an enormous stranded boat; walk from the port of Valldemossa up to the Carthusian Monastery, and from there to Deià to see the places described by the two renowned authors.
