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 Sta Maria and Binissalem – to vineyards. Sta Maria: an excellent location, in the town of Santa María. In case you are not familiar with this town, it is the next market town outside Palma, famous for its vinyards and market, with a lively, cosmopolitan feel to it, a number of renowned restaurants, while at the same time being very rural. It has the added advantage of being on the train line, making the city centre of Palma accessible ten minutes away.
This is largely national park and has some of the oldest woodland of the Mediterranean, if not Europe. For fabulous views and a favourable climate in summer, the wealthy have for centuries been choosing to take a summer residence in the area. Distances here can be deceptive, the roads often tortuously twisted and not for the faint-hearted driver. The exquisite views and detailed land husbandry, terracing and stone houses have attracted countless artists and writers, especially to the tiny village of Deià, which suffers somewhat from the sheer numbers of jetsetters in midsummer wishing to enjoy an artistic way of life. The ever-popular and exclusive area of Andratx forms the Western end of the Serra. If you wish to set up home within a living landscape, this is the region for you.
