Destination guide, Valldemossa

It goes without saying that Valldemossa is one of the prettiest towns in the whole of Mallorca. Due to its tranquil beauty, fascinating history and gentle climate, Valldemossa is unsurprisingly a place where many people aspire to own a Majorcan property.

Whether your ideal holiday home is a tasteful apartment, a luxury penthouse, a spacious villa or a converted finca (farmhouse), we at Balearic Properties would be delighted to help you find your dream holiday property in the Valldemossa area of Mallorca.

A lovely town steeped in history

Valldemossa is located high above the coast and its monastery, cobbled lanes, beautiful old stone houses and lush countryside attract people from all over the world to this stunning part of the island of Majorca. If you want history, Valldemossa has it in spades. It was here that Santa Catalina Tomas was born into a humble household. In 1792 she was beatified by the Pope and every year Valldemossa, and many other places in Mallorca, celebrate great fiestas in her memory. Come and join in the celebrations!

 

Loved by artists and writers

Mallorca has always attracted writers and artists to its shores. In the 1830s the celebrated writer George Sand spent time here with her partner composer Frederic Chopin. They resided in the town’s famous monastery and their stay is outlined in her book A Winter in Majorca. Unsurprisingly, Valldemossa monastery is one of the most visited places in Mallorca.

Valldemossa does not have a beach as such, but the shingly cove at Port de Valldemossa is a lovely place to go for a quiet swim. Here, a number of delightful seaside villas nestle in the shadow of the Tramuntana mountains. It’s a stunning location, but be careful of the drive down – it can be a little steep!

Lots of places to eat

Due to the popularity with visitors, Valldemossa has many cafes and restaurants to enjoy a Menu del Dia or evening meal. Ca’n Mario (971 612 122) is a delightful family-run restaurant situated in an old terraced house where you can enjoy fine Mallorcan cuisine. Definitely worth a visit. The upmarket Cappuccino chain also has a presence here (971 616 059 ).

As regards Port de Valldemossa, the only restaurant, Es Port, specialises in delicious Majorcan seafood (971 616 194) and provides stunning views over the sea.
