About Mallorca

The biggest Balearic Island, and for many international buyers undoubtedly the best, Mallorca appeals to sophisticated home owners who want a year-round experience with easy flight access and plenty to do. And it certainly provides that: 25 marinas, 24 golf clubs and 10 international schools, along with a truly fabulous range of restaurants serving traditional Mallorquin fare right up to Michelin-starred cuisine.
 
Mallorca and its capital Palma have spent the past decade moving seamlessly upmarket. Today the island has some of Spain’s finest boutique hotels and restaurants. Second home owners who commute through Palma’s impressive airport include many globally known sports stars, captains of industry and celebrities.

Where to settle?

A solid infrastructure includes roads and tunnels through the mighty Tramuntana Mountains – the backbone of the island – and means that very little is more than one hour from Palma. The east is the quieter side of the island, while the southwest and west coast remain the most sought after. This said, the variety of areas and quality properties in Mallorca means that the hardest choice for many buyers is where to settle.

Properties in the West of Mallorca

Andratx is the prime location in the southwest where substantial homes and the best contemporary architecture can be seen. Santa Ponsa with its good golf courses, the holiday resort of Camp de Mar, and inland Calvia are also in demand.
 
On the west coast, beautiful Deia with its artistic heritage and UNESCO World Heritage Status is a perennial if expensive favourite, while nearby Soller is popular for its more varied property choices and greater year round appeal. The sought-after coastal stretch from Valldemossa up towards Soller has some of the most expensive properties on the island.

Thinking about buying property in Palma?

Palma, Mallorca’s year-round capital, has become ever more popular with international buyers who have been busily renovating old townhouses into contemporary modern city homes with easy access to the sea.
 
Beautiful palacios in the Old Town that were once home to Spanish aristocracy are hidden behind quiet courtyards with small fountains and external stone staircases. Demand remains strong for refurbished apartments close to the Cathedral and on the remains of the Roman city walls, and also in the former fishing village of Portixol, east of Palma towards the airport

 
 
Property in Spain

It might have been sunshine and sea that brought early home owners and holiday makers to Spain, but it is the increasingly sophisticated facilities on offer that have kept them coming back.

 
Spanish Property

A country as large as Spain offers a big selection of property and areas to live in. Newer homes include seaside apartments and homes on gated golf resorts, but older properties, and especially rural ones, have been attracting buyers eager to connect with an authentic Spanish country lifestyle.
