If you wish to buy a high-quality, comfortable finca or house and enjoy the benefits of one of the most central locations in Mallorca, Santa Maria and its close surroundings are worth taking a look at!
The decision to buy is being made increasingly quickly: if clients see a house which meets their expectations, they buy it without hesitation and without looking at other houses. A trend, not least due to the pandemic.

1. Enjoy the centre of Mallorca when you buy your dream property around Santa Maria
The town of Santa Maria del Camí, known as Santa Maria, is located around 20 kilometres north-east of Palma de Mallorca at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains. Along with Mallorca’s various coastal towns, property locations further inland, such as Santa Maria, are also becoming increasingly popular amongst both national and international clients. Those who buy fincas and houses here experience Mallorca’s stunning beauty and enjoy a lifestyle which is quiet, rural, and close to nature. The various property locations around Santa Maria have made a name for themselves in the whole of Europe, not only for magnificently located primary residences, but also as a backdrop for seasonal holiday homes. If you wish to buy a finca in Mallorca and would like to receive comprehensive information about Santa Maria’s locational characteristics, you can find a summary in this overview created for you by Engel & Völkers Mallorca.
2. Diverse, idyllic, easy to reach: Santa Maria as a unique property location
Surrounded by delightful almond groves and grapevines, the atmosphere in Santa Maria is like a Mediterranean dream: its warm and dry climate for most parts of the year and the surrounding wide-reaching nature in Mallorca create an incomparably pleasant atmosphere. This means that buying a finca or a house in this region is really something special. The nearby Tramuntana Mountains afford spectacular panoramic views over many parts of Mallorca, right to the coast. There are fantastic opportunities for hikers, sightseers, cyclists, endurance runners, and climbers.
Discover Santa Maria & its surroundings
The ruta del almendro en flor and the path up to the historic Castell d´Alaró are both popular hiking trails. A tip from our team of real estate agents: at the Son Gual and Puntiró golf courses, passionate golfers can enjoy a relaxing game in a sophisticated environment. A further strength of Santa Maria as a property location is its well-maintained originality, which is visible in almost every corner of the region. If you buy a finca, a house, or another property around Santa Maria, you can experience local handicrafts and traditions first-hand. These include colourful weekly markets, where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese, and other local produce. Santa Maria’s selection of wines is also exquisite. Our real estate agents particularly recommend the traditional winemakers Macia Batle and Bodega Castell Miquel, whose high-quality selections will leave you spellbound! For a further delightful culinary experience, book a table at Restaurant Es Verger, which is located close to your new property and is known for its Mediterranean lamb specialties. Santa Maria is not only an ideal location for a new finca or house in Mallorca from a connoisseur’s perspective; the region is also impressive for practical reasons. Many important destinations, such as the island’s capital Palma de Mallorca and the international airport, can be reached within a short amount of time due to good transport connections via the Ma-13 motorway. The numerous shopping opportunities - like the Mallorca Fashion Outlet - also fulfil every need. As it is also planned to further improve the mobility infrastructure in this region in future, your real estate agent in Mallorca Engel & Völkers considers this location to provide excellent conditions for buying a finca or a house.
3. Buying a finca or a house around Santa Maria? These are the most popular types of property in the region
In most parts of central Mallorca, as in Santa Maria and the surrounding area, country houses with spacious outdoor areas and gardens are amongst the most frequently purchased types of properties. Some of the most important characteristics, which have a positive impact on the decision to purchase, include a swimming pool, an unobstructed view of the Tramuntana Mountains, and high-quality construction. Buyers appreciate stone façades, which provide a finca or a house with a rustic exterior, as well as modern, eccentric types of architecture. Against the backdrop of debates concerning the environment, increasing importance is attached to sustainable construction and energy-saving features, such as properties with their own water and electricity supply, or the possibility to have a kitchen garden. In addition to the existing offer of fincas, country homes, estates, and rustic houses, there is a rising number of project planning activities due to growing demand, which means that there are also attractive new-build projects.
