Lovely and historic, the pretty coastal village of Deià is set in a steep valley at the foot of the Puig del Teix mountain. Known for attracting artists, writers and creative types who enjoy the laid-back, bohemian setting, Deià may look humble to an outsider but it’s actually a getaway for some of the world’s most well-known millionaires. Recognized for combining nature and culture with strong, local tradition, the village’s lack of glitz is its main charm. Narrow alleys lead to galleries, restaurants and boutiques; outdoor enthusiasts can travel along hiking routes that range from easy to challenging; and the Llucalcari beach is home to natural mud baths. Half an hour from the village is Cala Deià, a rocky cove and beach with waterfront restaurants serving fresh seafood. Luxury property in Deià includes restored stone houses and farmhouses as well as modern villas.

Port d’Andratx

With the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range as a backdrop, modest Port d’Andratx has more than meets the eye. Restaurants and bars, a yacht club, contemporary art, designer shopping and summertime concerts just scratch the surface of what this endearing and exclusive port town provides. Sleepy during the winter and lively during the summer, the town is at its busiest on Wednesday, which is market day. High-end luxury villas with panoramic views of the harbour and blue sea come with high-tech features like intelligent lighting, underfloor heating and central cleaning systems. Additional luxury features that Port d’Andratx homes are known for include libraries, gyms, wine cellars, cinema rooms, indoor lifts, multi-car garages, summer kitchens and separate guest accommodation.


Puerto Portals

The glamorous marina at Puerto Portals is ideal for boat owners, but wander down there if you simply want to see where jet-setters and celebrities moor their boats, too. Brimming with a varied, international community, designer boutiques and yacht agents, Puerto Portals has alluring homes situated close to the port. While there are a handful of seafront villas, a majority of the real estate in the area are luxury apartments and penthouses.

Sóller and Port de Sóller

Both Sóller and Port de Sóller have a distinctly French atmosphere, especially during the Saturday market. Enjoy the feeling of partial-seclusion thanks to the surrounding mountains while still having easy access to and from town. The area is celebrated for having year-round action with a number of activities to keep you busy. Assorted real estate properties include seafront apartments, historic buildings, lovely townhouses, modernist homes and country estates set on hilltops. It is also worth checking out the authentic Spanish trams that regularly connect the two towns.

Son Vida

One of the more rural areas of Majorca, Son Vida has architect-designed villas, exclusive properties and estates with unbeatable views. Offering residents the upmost in privacy, Son Vida is a perfect area for real estate if you’re looking for a large home removed from the hustle and bustle of Majorca’s more urban areas. While there are traditional-style properties and a handful of apartments available in Son Vida, a majority of the sought-after real estate here is highly modern and outfitted with cutting-edge technology. Moreover, golfers can’t beat the close proximity to three fantastic, beautifully manicured courses. To create an at-home haven, look for a property that has spa amenities, like a Jacuzzi, Turkish bath or massage room.


Beautiful Valldemossa, a tranquil town in which its residents take great pride, is close enough to Palma to commute daily, if needed. Small town lifestyle is illustrated through its car-free, cobbled streets; Sunday morning street market; and the unpretentious Cala Sa Marina pebble beach. While tourists do pay a visit to Valldemossa, the scene is primarily calm and unassuming, with prestigious properties showcasing exceptional architecture.
