Palma.—People magazine's annual “Most Beautiful Woman”, actress, singer and food writer Gwyneth Paltrow has been enjoying a family holiday on the island.

The multi-award winn ing actress has been staying at Michael Douglas's property S'Estaca in Valldemossa with her two children Apple and Moses.
They were joined by her husband and father of her two children, the Coldplay front man Chris Martin who she met in 2002 and married in December, the following year.

During their stay, which was said to have been an extremely relaxing one with the family rarely venturing out of the Douglas estate, Gwyneth enjoyed some shopping with the two children round the village although when Chris Martin turned up, they spent most of the weekend enjoying the delights of S'Estaca.

They did however, go out for dinner on one occasion and chose La Residencia Hotel in Deya.
Coincidentally, Paltrow knows La Residencia well because when she was making a documentary about Spanish food, during her tour of Spain, they stopped at La Residencia to sample some Majorcan seafood.

What is more, she is no stranger to Spain.
Growing up, she was a regular visitor to Spain as an exchange student and has often claimed that Spain changed her life and she speaks almost perfect Spanish.

The Oscar-winning actress says she travelled to Spain as a teenager, fell in love with the country, and embraces the culture to the point that she visits at least once a year and makes sure her young children, Apple and Moses, also speak the language. “When I was 15, I went to a small town outside Talavera de la Reina and I had the most wonderful experience. It really changed my life,” Paltrow said during a recent interview.

Paltrow said Spain “became a second home.” “It is so different from the United States. It seemed to have a history, and the buildings are years and years old. Here in the United States an old building is about 17 (years old), and over there it's from 500 B.C., it's incredible,” she said.
