The mere mention of Palma de Mallorca awakes international recognition and respect.
The island’s capital boasts of diverse and highly attractive residential areas in its outer boundaries. The most famous of them is the elegant and exclusive Son Vida, still leading the Prime real estate residential market with the best panoramic views since 1960.
With three 18-holes golf courses (Son Vida, Son Muntaner and Son Quint), two world-class hotels (Arabella Sheraton and Castillo Son Vida, 5* Superior) and such a concentration of luxury, exquisite quality and grand estates, Son Vida is the example to follow, the most coveted and admired residential area in Majorca.
And time is on its side: Son Vida keeps emerging as a major residential area with multi-million euro villas and mansions set in top locations, either overlooking the bay of Palma, the Sierra de Tramontana or the green fairways of Golf Son Vida, all within 7 minutes drive from the centre of Palma and connected with the best road and public transport networks.
Son Vida always enjoyed great prestige and popularity among local, Spanish Mainland and also foreign residents who use their properties not only as vacation homes or permanent residences and it is also very popular and coveted by families because of the concentration of the best local and international schools located here.
Further out, new road and transport connections have made even easier the access and connection to the most attractive locations around Palma: Establiments, Esporlas, Galilea or Puigpunyent, with its traditional “fincas” and genuine townhouses contribute with their rustic accent and countryside beauty within ten or twenty minutes drive from Palma.
