How I Built… Boutique & Breakfast

August 10, 2014

I’m usually a fan of city breaks rather than lazing about on the beach, however it was summer and I’d already had my fair share of city breaks already this year after visiting Amsterdam, Paris and Barcelona among others so I decided to try something different and visit Majorca. I went many years ago as […]
