This is the largest area of the island and contains over half of Majorca’s territory. In recent years it has gained greatly in popularity, as very good homes can be found here, most of them with plots of over 4,000 m². Although they do not have sea views, these have their charm and the size of the plots means it is possible to have a beautiful garden or, if it is a large plot, your own olive, almond or carob grove, something very typical of this part of the island.
The towns in the greatest demand are Alaró, Lloseta, Santa Maria, Santa Eugenia and Sencelles because of their proximity to Palma and good connections via the Inca motorway. This area, as well as those of Binissalem and Consell, is also well known for its vineyards, the cellars of José Luis Ferrer http://www.vinosferrer.com/vinosferrer/vinos.aspx?idi=en and Macià Batle http://www.maciabatle.com/inici.php?idiWeb=3.
Inca (Majorca’s second largest city), Campanet and Sa Pobla are all in Majorca’s central area. Sa Pobla is known for its agricultural production, in particular new potatoes which are almost all exported to the United Kingdom, and more recently strawberries for the international and local markets. Sineu, Petra, Manacor (Majorca’s third largest city), Felanitx, Campos and Llucmajor are also in this area.
It is worth mentioning three charming rural hotels in this area. The first, in the centre of the island near Manacor, is the Hotel Reserva Rotana with a nine-hole golf course for its guests www.reservarotana.com. The Hotel Reads is in Santa Maria http://www.maciabatle.com/inici.php?idiWeb=3 and the Hotel Son Net is in the town of Puigpunyent http://www.sonnet.es/the-hotel.html.
The Raixa public estate is in Bunyola, http://www.mallorcaquality.com/en/seccion/excursiones-mallorca/
