Santanyi nestles in the beautiful, peaceful south-eastern corner of Majorca. Regardless of the number of times you have visited Majorca in the Balearic Islands, if you have never ventured to this little part of the world, the amazing beauty and timeless atmosphere will leave you cursing lost time. Santanyi is an ancient village, whose charming ochre church can be seen towering above the Santanyi villas from miles around.
Many happy hours can be spent simply exploring the village. Santanyi is home to a handful of wonderful art galleries, fashionable boutiques and traditional tapas restaurants, as well as some unforgettable little cafes from which to quietly watch the world drifting by and timeless bars in which to have a refreshing drink.
The beaches of south-eastern Mallorca are the most beautiful, unspoilt and nicest beaches on the whole island, and within just 4km of a Santanyi is an almost uninterrupted 35km stretch of sand. The closest beach to a Santanyi villa is Cala Santanyi, home to the famous Es Pontas arch. The arch marks an excellent scuba diving site, as there is a huge underwater cave just below the surface, with clear turquoise waters and a huge range of marine life.
The Mondrago Natural Park is a stunning stretch of countryside just outside the village. Walkers, mountain bikers and artists flock to the park due to the unbelievable colours of nature that abound here. The open ravines, sand dunes, trickling rivers and white beaches of the Mondrago National Park are a joy to behold, and the rocky coastal paths offer some of the most scenic walking routes anywhere in Mallorca. The bird life is especially varied in the park, with partridge, fishermen’s eagles and turtledoves among the most common sites.
The charming little beach resort of Cala d’Or is just a few miles along the coast from Santanyi accommodation. Cala d’Or is a real favourite along this stretch of coast, offering a timeless fishing village atmosphere, a great range of shops, bars and restaurants and fine beaches of the highest quality. There are also a great range of water sports facilities and a golf course for your pleasure in Cala d’Or.
ThePalma de Mallorca International Airport (PMI) is 48km from a self catering Santanyi villa. There are fantastically frequent flights arriving at the airport from throughout the British Isles, with a great range of airlines providing cheap flights from Belfast (BFS), Birmingham (BHX), Glasgow (GLA), Bristol (BRS), Edinburgh (EDI), Liverpool (LPL), Exeter (EXE), Newcastle (NCL), Manchester (MAN) and more.
