The best areas for sale in Mallorca Center
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

Properties for sale in Central Mallorca
The landscape on Mallorca is fantastically diverse, amazingly the island offers something of everything: gorgeous beaches and coasts, a world-famous mountain range, the Tramuntana, charming villages and the cosmopolitan capital Palma; then there is the central region with the gentle hills of the Serra de Llevant and the flat plateau called Es Pla. Es Pla is home to some enchantingly sleepy villages and famous monasteries and is also the island’s vegetable garden and granary.
Lovely fincas and the odd country estate for sale are dotted all over the Es Pla region, and many little villages such as Piña boast the occasional town house or finca for sale on the outskirts. A country home for sale near Algaida is another favourite in the region and a town house for sale in Sineu or Petra are charming alternatives to the country life. The ancient town Sineu boasts the only market on the island where you can buy livestock, this market takes place every Wednesday morning. The famous King’s Road, which is amazingly straight, with no curves and was built during the Roman occupation, takes you from Sineu right through the centre down to the coast in the Palma Bay.Read more
On the right-hand side of the motorway leading down to Palma, charming villas like Binissalem or Santa Maria del Camí, that also belong to this central area, are world-famous for their production of superb wines. In this region, companies such as Macía Batle or Ferrer have been established for years and have gradually built up an impeccable worldwide reputation as producers of exceptional wines. Mallorca has rightly obtained its place amongst the top ranks of the wine production industry, and other wine areas on the Spanish mainland such as la Rioja have acknowledged the serious Mallorcan competition. There are many spectacular, luxury country estates for sale near Santa Maria del Camí or Binissalem in this wine area.
The major cities are Inca, famous for leather production and its Thursday morning market; then there is Manacor with its furniture manufacturers and the world-famous pearl factories. A finca for sale on the outskirts of Inca or Manacor are property options for the locals, not so much for foreigners. The centre is definitely the most economical area to buy a property, affordable to those who are not millionaires!
Properties for sale in the Centre
The property selection in this area is based upon two major property types: the country homes also known as fincas, which includes the English version “estate” and a house in one of the pretty villages or major towns such as Inca or Manacor. The price of a finca for sale in the centre of the island will be far less expensive than one around Pollensa or over in and around Artà.
A town house for sale in the historic village Petra will also have a lower price tag than elsewhere. This is because of the “old rule” that the closer you get to the coast and beaches, the more expensive a property will get. Towns like Pollensa have become very popular with an international clientele and this has, unfortunately, driven prices up. Only a certain type of foreign buyer will decide to go for a town house in Sineu or Ariany! This person is looking for a peaceful home and not necessarily a solely investment property.
Investment in Real Estate
The centre is probably the most diverse region as far as the landscape is concerned. Property owners may not get the spectacular sea views that others enjoy who have bought on or near the coast, but they have an awesome overview of the mountain range and enjoy a blissful tranquillity that other areas cannot offer. The only noise that might “disturb” the owner of a finca for sale near Sencelles or Porreras are the sheep bleating and the cow bells! The peaceful villages offer a traditional lifestyle in Mallorcan town houses with all the typical features a heart can desire. Investing in a property in this central region will guarantee a good rental income, if the owner wishes to generate money from the property, as this area is popular for peace-seeking holidaymakers who want a relaxing break from hectic lifestyles back home. The good news is that no matter where you decide to buy your dream Mallorca property for sale, you are never far from the coast and a max 25-minute drive will take you to one of the island’s lovely beaches!
