The Mallorca/Majorca region

Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and it it offers the most varied landscapes and a wide range of things to do for the holiday maker, from relaxing at its many large and small beaches, to cycling and walking in its unspoiled mountain areas.

And with so many possibilities, when you get bored with relaxing by the beach or the pool, you can go into town for some culture or shopping or just sit in a cafe and watch the world go by, or get up early to walk or run before it gets too hot.

The city of Palma attracts visitors with its ancient town centre, the many restaurants and street cafes, mouth watering food markets, and the offer of varied and high quality cultural events. The mixture of tradition and modernity is something that is characteristic for the spirit of the city.

There are cultural festivals in many parts of the island throughout the summer, such as open air concerts in Belver Castle high above Palma or in Valdemossa, small concerts in local churches, Jazz festivals, art exhibitions, and so on.

The Tramuntana mountain region, declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is a world apart from the busy seaside resorts. You find wild dramatic rock formations, shady, aromatic pine forest that are bright green even in summer, and through which you can the sea in all shades of blue, ancient oak woods, and historic villages scattered along the coast or nestled between the mountains. Driving along the coast on the MA-10 from Soller south via Deia, Banyalbufar and Estellenc to Andraitx, the scenery is just breath taking!

Banyalbufar

Banyalbufar is one of the few villages along the coast in the south west of the Tramunata mountain region. It is famous for the innumerable ancient terraces, carved into the mountains and held by dry stone walls, which were created by the Moors or even the Phoenicians to allow cultivation of wine, almonds, citrus trees, and later tomatoes They also created intricate irrigation systems, which used to lead water coming from the mountains along little canals into storage basins, and from there to the cultivated terraces to water the plants. When walking in some parts of the village, one can still hear the sound of the water running through these covered stone canals by the side of the path.

The local people are proud of their cultural heritage and keep their traditions alive. The area used to be famous for white wine from the Malvasia grape. In recent years, villagers have started to grow wine again, and on many of the terraces you see vineyards now. and it now possible to try and buy local wines in the village.

Banyalbufar has a main beach, which can be reached by foot within about 10 minutes from the centre of the village, or by car driving down to a large parking area, from which steps lead down to the sea. It used to be the village port, and there are still some boats. It is a rock and pebble beach and ideal for snorkeling to discover the underwater landscapes and colourful fishes. There are also some more beaches further along.

The village has two bakeries which sell delicious fresh bread and local delicacies, as well as small selections of fresh fruit and vegetables, wine, and groceries. There is pharmacy and a bank with cash machine, as well as a range of restaurants and cafes. The larger village of Esporles is 15 minutes drive away and has two supermarkets, a butcher, and a lively Saturday morning market, as well as a string of street cafes along the main road in the shade of plane trees.

For keen walkers, the long distance route GR221, Ruta de Pedra en Sec, with it spectacular walks along ancient paths, runs through Banyalbufar and it is possible to complete various sections of it, using the house as a base. In spring and autumn the weather is ideal for exploring the Tramuntana mountains by foot or on bicycle.

There is a good bus service from Banyalbufar to Palma.

"Beautiful"

This is an extremely tasteful fincas set on the hillside overlooking Banyalbufar. The views are stunning. Everything, inside and out, is tasteful. A great deal of care has been put into this house over the years.
The village itself is small, but there are several good restaurants and all within waling distance.
Be prepared for quite a walk up the hill to the house - the views are worth it.

Thank you, much appreciated!
