The landscapes in this region of Mallorca offer a stunning contrast between mountains and sea underlining the appeal of property here. Easy accessibility to the capital Palma and the airport also contribute to the region’s appeal.

Deià is part of a landscape awarded World Heritage Site status for the way in which nature, culture and traditions triumphantly merge. Much of the Deià’s appeal lies in its laid-back vibe and blissful surroundings, making a stay here highly conducive for rest and relaxation amidst some very impressive views of the blue sea and stunning mountains.
There are a few interesting small boutiques, galleries and shops in the village, and plenty of places to eat and drink – including the Michelin-starred Es Racó d’Es Teix.

The real estate extends from modern apartments to Art Nouveau townhouses, to rustic golden-hued stone fincas.

Port De Soller is a picturesque little coastal village situated in a large horseshoe bay which has become well known and popular particularly due to its historic tram and scenic surroundings. Surrounded by the imposing peaks of the Tramuntana Mountains, Port de Soller is one of the few towns that can claim both magnificent mountain scenery and breath-taking sea views. Being on the west coast, it also affords some of the best sunsets in Mallorca.
As an old fishing harbour, it is also a great place to eat fish and seafood and the well-equipped marina is the perfect starting point for yacht and sailing trips to neighbouring bays such as Sa Calobra.
The bay is bordered by a sandy beach, lined by a pedestrianised promenade where visitors flock to admire the port’s unwavering beauty. Here resides an endless stretch of cafes, restaurants and shops with the odd hotel in between. Remaining true to its traditional fishing harbour roots, seafood restaurants are in abundance. At the same time, there are several contemporary places popping up in the area, including top-notch restaurants and trendy cocktail bars. This has coincided with the world-renowned Jumeirah Group opening a super-luxury hotel on the hills above Port de Soller, a 5-star hotel which prides itself as being one of the most luxurious places to stay in Europe, let alone Mallorca. As a result, the town has undergone a bit of facelift in the last few years, with the seafront being tastefully redeveloped and the tram line that runs to Soller re-routed.
The improvements made to the port in recent years have added value to real estate in and overlooking Port Sóller and country-dwellers enjoy fine views and tranquillity. The real estate extends from modern apartments to Art Nouveau townhouses, to rustic golden-hued stone fincas. Strict enforcement of building regulations has prevented overdevelopment, and you’re more likely to find an old property to restore – or that’s already been restored – than a plot on which to build your own place.

The authentic mountain village of Fornalutx is nestled high up the Tramuntana mountain range overlooking Sóller. Often referred to as the ‘Prettiest Village in Spain’, the stone buildings and red-tiled roofs combine with the scent of the surrounding orange and lemon groves to provide a traditional rustic charm.
Not only does Fornalutx claim a superlative mountain backdrop but the number of sought-after walking trails and cycle routes on its doorstep makes the village a top destination for hikers and cyclists to base themselves. For a more laid-back experience, its cafes offer terraces with views of olive and orange groves scaling right up to the pine-clad foothills of Puig Major (Mallorca’s highest mountain).
The village of Fornalutx has a growing international community. The centre of the village is dominated by traditional stone townhouses. There is a wider variety of fincas and villas in the surrounding countryside. The size of Fornalutx and the limited development potential mean real estate can be thin on the ground compared to nearby Sóller. Many of the properties available are traditional stone townhouses and small fincas. Bigger properties tend to be in the surrounding area rather than Fornalutx itself. The desirability of the location combined with the breathtaking views of the valley keeps the market healthy. Prices vary greatly in a small area, largely due to the properties level of modernisation and position in the village. While location adds a premium, the mountain views appear to have less of an effect on the price than a sea view. Transport links from Fornalutx are better than ever. The motorway network is easy to reach, and the cosmopolitan capital of Palma is just 40 minutes away.
If you would like to find out more about Fornalutx and property for sale in Majorca then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Valdemossa is a village steeped in old-world charm, its quiet and picturesque streets are sprinkled with shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants.

Valldemossa’s fine architecture and environment attracts wealthy buyers searching for prestige properties, and the small selection of homes available for sale do not disappoint.

This enchanting town consists of attractive narrow streets and an impressive main square called the Plaça Mayor which is dominated by a Parroquial church dating back to the 18th century.
