Mallorca

Palma

Palma, the capital of Majorca and the Balearic Islands, is the eighth largest city in Spain by population with some 500,000 inhabitants. The airport, the commercial harbour, and the Real Club Náutico and Club de Mar marinas are in its municipality. The old town, which contains the Cathedral, the Almudaina palace, the Arab baths and the Calatrava district is worth mentioning, as is the shopping district with its luxury shops on the Paseo del Borne and Jaime III streets. The Santa Catalina district, with its wide variety of bars, restaurants and shops, and a pleasant night-time atmosphere, is also a very attractive area. On the coast, the Portixol and Ciudad Jardín areas are very popular because of their bars, restaurants and shops, as well as their property offer.

Southwest

Most of the luxury homes, exclusive villas and magnificent penthouses for sale in Mallorca's Southwest area are newly built or fully renovated. The demand for apartments on sale in the Southwest is approximately a third lower than the demand for villas. As for plots, there are only a few remaining options in Southwest Mallorca offering outstanding views, and therefore developers tend to focus mainly on villas requiring extensive renovation work. We offer luxury houses and villas for sale in Port d'Andratx, Nueva Santa Ponsa / Port Adriano and Bendinat / Portals. We also have a selection of Southwest Mallorca property & Southwest Mallorca real estate in Southwest Mallorca's most sought-after areas.

West

Mallorca's western region stretches from Puerto de Andratx to Pollensa. This is undoubtedly the most beautiful area on the island, as it includes the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010. Charmingly quaint towns such as Estellencs, Esporles or Banyalbufar embody the ideal of Mallorca's tranquil lifestyle in harmony with nature. This is a landscape characterised by waterfalls, pebble coves, valleys stretching down to the rocky coasts and the traditional terraces where sturdy ancient olive trees that produce Mallorca's superb oil grow. Our most outstanding luxury properties in this area are to be found in the exclusive mountain town of Deià, near Valldemossa, where we have large villas in the George Sand residential development, or in Sóller and the famous Port de Sóller.

North

Mallorca’s northern region, running from Formentor to Cala Ratjada, boasts a stunning coastline backed by pine woods and bathed by the calm waters of its two superb bays. Beyond the town of Can Picafort lies an unspoilt protected area with a wealth of natural flora and fauna. We have luxury villas for sale in the idyllic town of Colònia de Sant Pere as well as in the residential developments of “Cielo de Bonaire” and “Paraíso de Bonaire”, standing on the small peninsula separating the bays of Alcúdia and Pollensa. In Puerto Pollensa you will also find a number of luxury apartments for sale, whilst the spacious and highly exclusive villas in the magnificent inland area of Tramuntana offer breathtaking views of the mountain range. Another of the island’s most select areas is to be found on Formentor Peninsula, where we have outstanding luxury properties, many with their own direct access to the sea and stunning panoramic views of the Mediterranean.

Northeast

The majority of the hotels in the north of the island are found in the northeast area, as well as the long beaches of Alcudia, Costa de los Pinos, Playa de Muro and Can Picafort. After this, there is a very beautiful area of untouched beaches, starting at Son Serra de Marina. The Colonia de Sant Pere is at the end of this stretch of coast with its marina as well as Cap Farrutx and Cala Ratjada which mark the end of the northern area.

Southeast

This area stretches from Santany, as far as the eastern side of Palma Bay, in the municipality of Llucmajor. The most luxurious properties for sale are to be found in the municipality of Santanyí, in the areas dotted with country estates rather than the town centre. Here you can choose from a wide selection of inland properties and country estates, most of which are fitted with flat solar panels and their own water supply. Ses Salines is another highly aspirational area and the site of some of Mallorcas most famous beaches, including the vast Es Trenc with its fine white sands and crystal-clear waters. Other superb spots include the recently renovated marinas of Cala dOr and Sa Ràpita, overlooking the Nature Park on the Cabrera archipelago. Experience the fabulous sensation of owning a luxury home in the islands southeast region.

Centre

The central region is the largest on Mallorca, covering more than half the island. Its charming inland towns and villages, vineyards and the vast country estates make this an irresistible and highly sought-after location for both investors and those wishing to settle inland. The towns of Alaró and Santa María are the most aspirational areas, where we offer our luxury villas for sale. Far from the hustle and bustle yet with easy access to the motorway, most of our superb properties stand on plots of more than 4,000 m2, making them the ideal choice for those seeking a peaceful life in Mallorca's countryside. We also have a number of properties in Santa María and Bunyola that are ideal for horse breeding.

Zones

Mallorca's name derives from the Latin insula maior, and the later form, Maiorica. In 123 BC the Romans founded a city called Palmaria (Palma) in Mallorca. During the period of Muslim rule it received the Arabic name of Madina Mayurqa. Later on, when James I of Aragon conquered the island in 1229 it came to be known as Ciutat de Mallorca (City of Mallorca).

From 1950 the island started to become a tourist destination. The tourist boom which took place between 1960 and 1970 saw the construction of the majority of the hotels and the development of supporting industries. The remaining industries, such as footwear, and also agriculture, are becoming less important as tourism is the real motor of the Balearics' economy. A key factor in this is the ease of access to Mallorca thanks to the Son Sant Joan airport which has become Spain's third largest by number of passengers and which has many routes to Europe's leading cities. The number of operations by private planes has also increased significantly.

It is very hard to find another tourist destination just two or three hours from Europe's major cities which combines everything that Mallorca offers, including its easy access and beautiful natural setting (40% of which is in protected areas where building is controlled).

Mallorca has an area of 3,640.11km² and, according to the 2015 census, a population of 859,289 inhabitants.

It has a typically Mediterranean climate, with high temperatures in summer (over 30 °C) and moderately low ones in winter (rarely below 5 °C). The main sector of its economy is tourism and the island receives some 12 million visitors per year.

The Sierra de Tramuntana, the mountain chain which runs from Puerto de Andratx to Puerto de Pollensa and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2010, protects the whole island from wind and bad weather. Its highest point is Puig Major at 1,342 metres. This is the part of Mallorca that is most protected from overdevelopment, and the Costa Nord foundation, which Michael Douglas founded in order to protect and conserve the environment is based here.
