Rural Holidays In Majorca

Rural holidays in Majorca are becoming popular with the British because it’s a nice way to relax without battling overcrowded areas for a good spot on the beach.

Majorca’s economic base featured farming, livestock and agriculture before the 1960s. Before it became dependent upon tourism, Majorca prided itself on being able to take care of itself without outside influence. The rising climate has made it hard to farm or raise livestock on the island. Limited water supplies make it difficult to maintain any kind of crop. The sparse amount of agriculture that is still done in Majorca is in an effort to keep up with the demand from tourists, who take traditional package holidays and sometimes a villa holiday in Majorca
