The first impression one receives of Orient, is that it is set in a beautiful valley. It is like a town taken off a postcard, as if it has emerged from Nature and is yet another elevation of the same land. Its peacefulness, the stone houses and the streest with steps are antological. All of this situated in a valley as if it was taken from a postcard, especially in spring. Orient is relatively near Palma de Mallorca, our Balearic capital. Orient is an ideal place for doing excursions and going hiking.
