The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca is the largest of the three main Balearic Islands. It is a beautiful island full of contrasts and has been undergoing a revival over the last 25 years. The island has re-established itself as a destination rich in culture, offering visitors a diverse choice of unspoilt beaches, bustling towns and breathtaking scenery.
The south east of the island is a particularly beautiful area with stunning coastal scenery dotted with numerous small coves and beaches. This calm and tranquil area is a great place to visit with a family, with friends or as a couple. The east coast is famous for its wonderful beaches. The heritage protected beach and salt lakes of Es Trenc are reminiscent of the Caribbean, and the array of smaller calas (beaches) along the coast line offer a fantastic choice of days out.
The tranquil inland areas have many beautiful traditional towns. The Santanyi region is fast evolving into one of the most exclusive in the South of Mallorca, boasting some beautiful towns and villages. The cosmopolitan town of Santanyi itself, with its bustling street market and shops, lively Felanitx and busy Cala d'Or are all close by. Great cuisine is never far away. The inland villages and towns offers interesting and unique restaurants serving locally sourced ingredients. Or head to the coast for harbourside restaurants serving freshly caught seafood.
The house is in the centre of the small village of Es Llombards. Es Llombards itself is a charming little village located near to the town of Santanyi. The village has two restaurants, two small local bars, a nice bakery and a weekly market on Thursdays, all within a short walk of the house.
The village is surrounded by open countryside and one of it's best features is the proximity of so many great beaches. The beaches at Cala Llombards and Cala S'Almunia are about 2 miles (3km) away and the beautiful beaches of Cala Santanyi, Cala Moro, Cala Mondrago and Es Trenc are also all nearby. These small, secluded coves are some of the best and most unspoiled beaches on the island and are perfect for swimming, snorkelling or sunbathing. There are also spectacular walks along this most beautiful stretch of coastline. The surrounding countryside is great for bird watching and for enjoying nature.
The small town of Santanyi is about 2 miles (3 km) away. Es Llombards and Santanyi both get their distinctive character from the beautiful local sandstone from which their buildings are constructed (and which was also used to build Palma cathedral). Santanyi is a lovely town with a variety of restaurants, bars and nice shops. It has a large artistic community with several local galleries and art spaces. The town's market has a lovely atmosphere with a wide variety of stalls selling food, clothes, arts and crafts and other goods. It is open on Saturday and Wednesday mornings throughout the year.
