Campos is in the south east of the island of Majorca and is a traditional Majorcan town with shopping and cultural attractions close by. The landscape is rural and flat, scattered with many small villages. The beaches in the area are superb – pretty coves with white sand and aquamarine seas are what the area is known for. There are also many nature reserves which help preserve the natural beauty of this lovely island paradise.
Swim and Sunbathe - Es Trenc Beach is one of the most beautiful in the area with shallow water for safe swimming and plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas. The beach is just 10 minutes from your self catering villa. There is a small local restaurant and bar, and it is part of the Es Trenc-Salobar natural area.
Golf - Mallorca offers many outdoor activities, including golf courses and golf academies for improving your game whilst enjoying the sunshine.
Take a train trip from Palma to Soller - Enjoy the 28km journey through some of the most unspoilt countryside on Majorca. The journey takes about one hour 20 minutes. Enjoy shopping in Soller or take the old tram down to the Port of Soller for a delightful day out.
Santanyi - This delightful village is just 10 minutes from your villa in Campos, and has a delightful art gallery showing the work of local and international artists called the Gemma Leys Gallery. There is also a theatre and a cinema in the village so check what’s on during your visit.
Palma is the capital of the island and has a host of lovely buildings including the Cathedral. Called La Seu, it was built on the site of a former mosque and was restored by the famous architect Antoni Gaudi in 1901.
The Old City is a maze of shady streets with typical tall housing with ornate window boxes and metalwork on the balconies. The Arab Baths are very interesting but sadly neglected. The cupola is supported by Roman columns and the garden is filled with flowers, ferns and birds.
Weather in Majorca year-round is very pleasant and sunny. In the winter, temperatures rarely drop below 16C (61F) during the day, and summers are hot and dry at 31C (88F).
