This region is dominated by the majestic Serra de Tramuntana, Mallorca's spectacular mountain range, a UNESCO Heritage site. A large area is taken up by a national park and part of it is made up of the oldest woodlands in the Mediterranean, if not Europe. Having discovered the fabulous views and the favourable climate in the summer, the wealthy have been choosing to take up a summer residence in this area for centuries. Distances here can be deceptive, the roads often tortuously twisted and not for the faint-hearted driver. The exquisite views and spectacular landscape, terraced fields and stone houses have attracted countless artists and writers, especially to the tiny village Deià, which suffers somewhat from the sheer numbers of wealthy jetsetters in midsummer wishing to enjoy an BoHo artistic way of life. The ever-popular and exclusive area of Andratx forms the western end of the Serra de Tramuntana. If you wish to set up home with a stunning landscape as a backdrop, this is definitely the region for you.
