The region has an area of about 151.7 km2 and a population of 24.000 habitants distributed in three small towns: Pollensa, Port de Pollensa and Cala Sant Vicenç. Pollensa offers an interesting number of possibilities to enjoy some great holidays: all kinds of sports can be practiced such as golf, water sports, cycling or hiking in the mountains and a wide range of cultural events can be enjoyed. The Pollensa area is set against the majestic mountains and stretches down the sea, perfect to find whatever you are looking for. Whether you feel like relaxing on the beach, enjoying a day sailing in the fantastic bay or wandering in the stunning countryside.
The city offers a variety of districts and properties. The architecture of some buildings in the prestigious Old Town (Casc Antic) and Santa Catalina is simply stunning and unique, these are currently the most charming and trendy areas to buy a property in the Balearic capital. Organised walking tours offer the opportunity to admire a selection of famous city residences with their elegant interior patios, inspirations for photographers and artists alike. The promenade area along the seafront, called the Paseo Marítimo, is the natural home to the jet-set, with its luxury apartments, fast pace of life and proximity to the exclusive marinas and commercial Port.
Over the years, this south-west region has developed into the playground for the super rich and those famous people, who like to be seen. The super yacht marinas Puerto Portals and Port Adriano serve as the ideal hotspots for any kind of extravaganza to be staged. The choice of exquisite, top-class restaurants and chic cocktail bars or cafés competing for the coveted "place to go" label is endless. Stunning villas that shamelessly display an opulence that is jaw-dropping are no rarity in the south-west. Luxury townhouses or apartments in a gated community near to one of the numerous, challenging golf courses are favourite lock-up and go properties.
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.
This region is well-known for its assortment of excellent golf courses, set in spectacular locations and the stunning, rugged coastline that in some areas ressembles Norwegian Fjords. Many luxurious villas are perched on the hills in the region and offer most amazing views over the Mediterranean. Local architectures have done a fantastic job here, incorporating villas with ultra-modern designs into the landscape. Pretty beaches and romantic coves dot this coast, the famous Caves of Drac near Porto Cristo are must-see for those who love to discover Mallorca's beauty spots. Whilst the town Manacor is famous for its pearl and furniture factories, Felanitx is definitely one of Mallorca's top wine areas. The charming town Artá has attracted many artists and artisans over the past years, numerous galleries and shops in the town centre exhibit the works of these local talents.
The southern tip of Mallorca has the coastlines and fishing possibilities which mostly attract the locals, they choose Colonia de San Jordí and Sa Rápita as the place to buy a second home and spend the summer months near the sea. The choice of location is determined by the quality of beaches, the cleanliness of the water and abundance of fish and the favourable winds and currents - perfect conditions for sailing. The rural areas in the south of Mallorca are among the most sparsely populated regions of the island. The flat countryside, mostly farmland, stretches from Llucmajor and Campos to the sea. For those who seek peace and quiet as well as proximity to the beach and airport, there are country gems, with or without a lot of land, waiting to be discovered off the beaten track.
This central plains region is considered to be the most authentic of Mallorca. Oblivious to outside influences, an agricultural way of life continues to dominate the landscape, which is dedicated to grain crops, livestock farming including sheep and pigs, and in certain parts – most notably in Santa Maria and Binissalem – to vineyards. In case you are not familiar with Santa Maria, it is the next market town outside of Palma, famous for its vineyards and a weekly market with a lively, cosmopolitan feel to it, a number of popular restaurants, while at the same time it is still very rural. Santa Maria has the added advantage of being on the train line, making the city centre of Palma accessible within ten minutes
