Do you know the southeast coast of Majorca? Our small part of that coast is called the Costa del Silencio, and it certainly is much more quiet here than in the more established tourist areas further north and west on the island. Our house is right on the edge of the Mediterranean close to the small, cosy town of Porto Petro, and from the garden and the living room we have a wide, unobstructed view of the sea. To the right of us the coast stretches on to the Bay of Mondrago, a nature reserve and one of the most beautiful beaches in Majorca, and behind us we can see the low, green mountains of the region around Felanitx, the largest town in this part of the island.
