Campanet has yet to be discovered by the mass tourist market, but due to the stunning surroundings, it is only a matter of time! Standing in the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains of Spain, Campanet is one of the last truly Mallorcan villages still in existence, where peaceful Balearic breaks thrive.
It is the local scenery which attracts discerning visitors to self catering Campanet accommodation. Sheer mountains plunge dramatically into the azure blue seas of the Mediterranean, with small sandy cove beaches offering the most idyllic spots to relax in the sun. Walkers will feel like they are in their own personal paradise, as the foothills of the Serra de Tramuntana are a veritable maze of trails, taking you to simply breathtaking viewpoints among the lush, green plateaus and rocky outcrops which make up the countryside. If you have a good head for heights, the rugged cliff walks will be a real treat too. The best thing is, there are a handful of atmospheric little bars in Campanet in which to get a refreshing drink after a hard day’s exercise!
Campanet is not short of golf courses either. Although some of the best courses are a little distance from a holiday rental villa in Campanet, you can easily compare local courses all week if you have the use of a hire car.
Despite the town’s size, fiestas are celebrated with gusto. The fiesta of Sant Victoria in July is a superb eight day extravaganza of food and music, with colourful parades and plenty of entertainment! The May Fair on the second weekend of May is worth visiting if you have an interest in agriculture too.
The Caves and underground lakes of Campanet, which are probably the most famous attraction in Campanet, are certainly worth exploring, as they are renowned for their quality of their geological formations. The caves are open 365 days a year, and there is plenty to see within them.
During your stay in Campanet rental accommodation, the draw of Mallorca’s beaches will undoubtedly get the better of you! Luckily, the first-class beaches of Alcudia and Formentor are both within easy striking distance. Although these are not huge tourist beaches, there are a range of water sports options available. The snorkelling and diving options are particularly popular, and sailing of canoeing along the rugged coastline is a wonderful way to spend a day or two from your Campanet villa.
From the beginning of June until the end of October, beach lovers will be hard to prize off the beach as temperatures soar to an average monthly temperature of over 25˚C. As long as you avoid July and August, when temperatures are very warm, walking holidays thrive throughout the whole year, as even during the coldest winter months, temperatures are highly unlikely to drop below 10˚C.
Palma de Mallorca International Airport (PMI) is just 35 miles from a holiday rental in Campanet. There are few public or tourist connections to the village, which has ensured that the village remains a wonderfully unspoilt Mallorcan gem, it also means that a little effort is required in reaching your self catering Campanet property. There are plenty of fixed price taxis based at the airport though, which should charge no more than around 50 Euros.
