Felanitx itself is a charming municipal town. Situated roughly 13 kilometres inland from Porto Colom, Felanitx has a delightful old-world charm and peaceful vibe, making it high on the list of people looking for a villa-style property in a traditional Mallorcan town. The Church of Sant Miquel in the central square of Placa Sa Font in Felanitx is a popular attraction, particularly for those wishing to take a look at the famous (and rather bizarre) statue of St Miquel standing on the head of the devil.
From the Placa, an imposing set of stone steps connects you to the Font de Santa Margalida, a water fountain which was once the town's main well. But the major place of interest for visitors to Felanitx is undoubtedly the mediaeval monastery of Santuari de Sant Salvador. Majestically positioned on a steep rock outcrop to the south east of the town, it was once one of Majorca’s most important sites of sacred pilgrimage. The monastery also has a restaurant and café and doubles as a hotel.
However, it's not just the monastery that attracts people to Felanitx - from the sanctuary one looks out towards the Castell de Santueri. Constructed in the 14th century, the castle itself, impressively, is built into the cliffs and the views from here are spectacular.
A lovely place to eat in Felanitx is El Castillo del Bosque, literally the ‘castle in the woods’. Here one can enjoy delicious, freshly-cooked Mediterranean cuisine in a romantic garden setting. Sunday morning is a good time to be in Felanitx, where the town really comes to life with the al fresco market. Here you can purchase fresh local produce and enjoy the exciting buzz of a Majorcan market day.
Felanitx has good direct road connections with Palma and its international airport approximately 50 kilometres away. Buses also connect with Palma, Porto Colom and Santanyi.
All considered, it's easy to see why so many people come to Mallorca specifically with the intention of seeking out villas for sale in the charming town of Felanitx.
