Solo In Style:
Women over 50 travelling solo and loving it!

Join our Solo In Style Mallorca Getaway, curated and hosted by Deborah Ives, founder of Solo In Style, and Laura Cozik, founder of Mallorca by Design.

10 Women are Welcome

 

Discover Summer in Mallorca...

 

Mallorca is known for its beautiful coastline, secluded beaches and coves, limestone mountains, centuries old architecture, wineries, weekly markets, and year round breathtaking beauty.  You will experience all of these during our Mallorca Getaway.  We have exclusive use of our very own hotel for six beautiful nights, in a local village at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains.  Next we visit the city of Palma for three spectacular nights in a small boutique hotel in the old town. 

 

Villages You Will Explore... 

 

 

This Getaway Is For You If...

 

Historic walks through the past awaken your curiosity.  You love dining alfresco.  Visiting local markets to taste everything in season rocks your socks.  Temperatures in the 20C/80F range is your comfort zone.  You adore nature, hiking, exploring.  You believe that a walk on the beach and a swim in the Sea is the most lavish experience.  You prefer to mingle with locals and immerse yourself in their way of life, over spending time with those who were on your flight.  Under The Mallorca Sun is a movie you'd watch.  Summertime travel is irresistable to you.  And finally, travelling with an intimate group of like-minded women, with more time on foot and less in a vehicle is your jam.  There will be a good amount of walking, so comfortable shoes and an appropriate level of fitness is required. 

 

Your Hosts...

 

How often is it that you go on holiday with the founder of your chosen travel tribe?  Solo In Style has more than half a million members, and Deborah Ives, the woman who caught lightning in a bottle, will be joining this experience with you.  Also looking after you will be the founder of Mallorca by Design, who has been a local resident for 6 years.  Laura has been hosting events and spending the shoulder seasons in Mallorca since 2011, and in 2018 she finally packed her bags and left New York City.  Her focus is always on the most unique experiences.  You’re in for an unforgettable adventure.  Laura's background in health and fitness spans 40 years ... as a group fitness instructor, a celebrity trainer, a competitive dancer, and someone who asks the universe for one thing, to move her body for life.

 

Join Us...  

 

This Mallorca Getaway is limited to just 10 amazing women.  Everyone has their own room with private bath.  Rooms are first come, first served ... the sooner you register, the more choices you have.  Join us as we enjoy each other’s company, share our stories, forge new friendships, and have an insane amount of fun to boot.  Laugh as much as you breathe and stay curious as long as you live.

Your Hosts

Deborah 1 BEST.jpg

DEBORAH

Founder, Solo in Style

 

Deborah has always loved to travel and when she found herself suddenly divorced aged 50, her response was to go it alone. It was scary, fabulous, and empowering, in equal measure, and she was instantly hooked.  As a solo female traveller over the age of 50, a huge and growing demographic, Deborah felt ignored by the travel industry. This prompted her to create Solo In Style with the idea of connecting like-minded women to encourage and support one another with their solo travels.  Alongside a successful 30-year career in marketing, fine wine & culinary arts, Deborah, now aged 63, continues to expand Solo in Style globally to support and encourage as many women as possible to fulfil their solo travel ambitions.
