Southeast Mallorca – Santanyi
Santanyi is a traditional Mallorcan town in a lovely rural setting with its own beach. Scholars trace the town’s origins back to 1300AD when it recieved its town charter, but many claim Santanyi dates back to Roman times. Elements of the town’s history can be seen throughout its gorgeous streets. This includes 14th-century walls built to protect against pirates and a 16th-century tower found at the gates of Porta Murada.
Villas in Santanyi are incredibly well situated. Some of Mallorca’s most stunning beaches are only a 15-minute drive away, and this includes Parc Natural de Mondragó, a vast nature reserve full of magnificent scenery, long beaches, and clear water.

Property prices in Port Andratx reflect the area’s incredible beauty. Those willing to adapt their budgets accordingly will be able to enjoy local golf courses, spas, restaurants, and bars, as well as peaceful scenery. You may even bump into a celebrity neighbour or two.

Southwest Mallorca – Palma de Mallorca
The city of Palma grew from a camp originally established by Roman settlers. Today, Palma de Mallorca is made up of five unique districts, offering a wonderful mixture of modern living, old-town charm, and vibrant atmospheres. Residents of Palma continually find hidden gems among its bustling streets, while making themselves at home in their favourite bars and restaurants.
When you think of Palma, villas may not immediately come mind. It’s true that apartments and townhouses are more commonplace in the city centre. But, Palma’s surrounding areas are a little oasis of tranquillity, offering beautiful villas within a stone’s throw of the busy town. Areas such as Son Vida and Genova are ideal places to find gorgeous villas with pools and landscaped gardens.

The nearby town of Alcúdia makes for a fantastic day out. Its well-preserved old town with medieval walls and quaint cobbled streets give Alcúdia its unique charm. Both areas are vibrant in peak season, offering tranquillity during the winter months.
West Mallorca – Soller
Soller’s laid-back way of life and gorgeous stone houses make it a very attractive area for buyers. Set against the backdrop of mountain ranges, Soller’s narrow streets and pretty buildings appeal to tourists who often travel to the area on the train from Palma, which dates back to 1912. However, full-time residents tend to be Spanish, creating a homely atmosphere.
West Mallorca – Deia
Deia is a quaint village nestled between the sea and mountains in west Mallorca. As a coastal village, Deia offers a gorgeous beach with all the necessary amenities. Historically, the area has been home to many creative people from Mallorca and abroad. Deia is an area that allows its inhabitants to seamlessly integrate into idyllic Mallorcan in life.
