The Mallorca/Majorca region
The house is situated on the edge of the green foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains and less than 15 minutes to fantastic northern beaches of Alcudia and Pollenca. The hilltop village of Campanet is surrounded by a network of villages and towns, making it an ideal base to explore Mallorca.
The climate is Mediterranean. Summers are hot in the plains and winters mild to cool.
Majorca's own language is Catalan. The two official languages of Majorca are Catalan and Spanish, with many of the younger people speaking English also.
The rugged mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana peak to 1,445 metres and its proximity to the coastline ensures an attractive Mediterranean backdrop and has just become a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a great place to go hiking.
Characterised by agricultural terraces, dry stone walls and large farming estates often owned by wealthy Mallorcan aristocracy, the Serra de Tramuntana is the most significant limestone area on the Island and it has been eroded by centuries of weather and water to create deep torrents and dramatic gullies. Native flora includes holm oaks and pine forest, whilst a variety of fauna from goats to sheep, osprey to falcon,as well as the Mallorcan black vulture, have all made the Serra de Tramuntana their home.
For those seeking a serene and relaxing stay, the village of Campanet is ideal.
This small community of 2500 people offers its own version of Spanish heaven. Campanet is a great place if you want to come back from your Majorca holiday feeling totally refreshed.
Attracting more chilled out aficionados, the village gives a glimpse into the traditional way of life on the island and is ideal for those who like to see what is under the skin of a place, rather than just seeing those areas aimed at tourists.
Campanet and each of the surrounding villages have a market day, where fresh local produce is sold. Market day in Campanet is Tuesday and a smaller fruit market just down the road on Saturdays . There are two local bakeries, a delicatessen, butcher, two supermarkets, a stationary shop ( with English newspapers), three banks and a chemist shop as well as six cafes, all centred around the sunny plaza, the social centre of the village.
The area around the village is a draw for those keen to see all of the amazing wildlife on the island of Mallorca and you may want to spend a day exploring the surrounding countryside on foot or bike while on holiday .
If you like rocky landscapes and breathtaking views, the panoramas around here are really spectacular. The community is on the very edge of the Tramuntana Mountains, so those who fancy something a little more energetic than a stroll are well catered for. We can offer a guide to the Tramuntana Mountains- please ask.
Active holidaymakers on a getaway to Campanet could also find the surrounding area perfect for exploring on two wheels. Can Tio has five bikes on which you and your friends and family can head off into the countryside and visit the local villages
For the serious cyclist, there is the Port de Pollença-Campanet-Selva-Inca-Sencelles-Campos route.
Time: 5 hours approximately, distance, 85 kilometres. This well-signposted route starts in the Port of Pollença in the north of the island on Pollença Bay, circumvents the village of Pollença and follows back roads to Campanet and Selva. Practically the entire road, which skirts the Tramontana Mountains, is flat. Turning south at Inca, the mountains are at cyclists' backs and the route continues along back roads that pass through Sencelles on the way to Algaida. The last two stretches after Algaida lead to Llucmajor and Campos.
See http://www.globalspokes.com/Mallorca/mallorca-routes.htm for more information.
Just outside Campanet and in sight of the house are amazing limestone caves, said to house the longest stalactite in the world!
There are two local golf courses, at Pollensa and Alcudia, within 15 minutes drive. Two other top courses are Golf Park Puntiro, which was designed by the world renowned Nicklaus design group. For more details see: http://www.yuriliberzon.com/the-beautiful-golf-courses-of-mallorca/
Campanet is also an ideal base from which to explore the rest of this beautiful island as its location puts it in the centre of a number of places well worth a visit
While exploring the mountains around the village, you may come across the mountain top monastery of Lluc, the religious epicentre of Mallorca. This can be reached via the hill village of Caimari, well worth a visit in its own right.
Campanet is around 35 kilometres, or just over half an hour, away from the capital city of Mallorca, Palma and the airport and is easily accessible from all parts of the island.
Other nearby destinations well worth seeing on a Majorca holiday include the town of Inca, which can be reached in around ten minutes by car . It's famous for it's leather goods and fashion wear. From here , you can get the train to Palma. There is a connecting bus from the plaza in Campanet, if you want to leave the car at home.
To the north, the historic town of Pollenca, with a good choice of shops and restaurants is no more than a 15 minute drive along the idyllic Campanet Valley. Inca, just 10 minutes by car, has a number of wonderful and traditional cellar restaurants, well worth a visit.

"Absolutely first class."
A superb villa with stunning views on the edge of a lovely village with a small square and a couple of cafes serving good and reasonably priced food. Very rustic and totally relaxing. Eva and her father who look after the Villa were great. Our children loved it as well.
