Claiming to be the smallest village on the island and once a classic example of ‘hidden Mallorca’. Orient is now being discovered. The official population is about 30. Inaccessibility keeps Orient free of tourist coaches and its cluster of white houses snuggles beside the mountains of the Serra d’Alfabia. The village now has a luxury hotel, L’Hermitage, which occupies the countryseat of a 17th century Spanish.
