Things to do in Felanitx

The area around Felanitx has been settled since prehistoric times. The current town is on a site that used to be a Moorish settlement called Canabitx. Felanitx really started developing in the late 13th century when King Jaume II granted the settlement a market and encouraged people from the mainland to move into the region. Local lore has it that the town was the real birthplace of Christopher Columbus, whose origins are the subject of much speculation.

-The architecture of Felanitx is interesting to explore, with the town being home to some historic churches and monasteries. These include the Sant Agusti Monastery and the Parish Church of Sant Miquel. The latter is in the heart of town, overlooking the Santa Margalida Plaza. The fountain here was the spring around which the Moors built their settlement all those centuries ago.

-The Felanitx Sunday market is the place to stock up your Felanitx holiday home with fresh fruit and vegetables as well as the capers that the town is famous for. You can also buy local pottery here.

-Fresh produce from the market is enjoyed best with some good wine in a holiday villa in Felanitx and a great way to find the perfect wine is to visit the wineries in the area. You can even take a cycling tour of the wine route if you’re not worried that after a few tastings you might fall off your bicycle. The town was also famous for its brandy once, but unfortunately this industry collapsed in the 19th century.

-Santueri Castle is located high on a hill overlooking S’Horta, a hamlet about 4 miles south-east of Felanitx. This fortress was built by the Moors although the Romans also had a fort here. The architecture and history are fascinating and the views from here are truly breath-taking. The best way to get here from a chateau accommodation in Felanitx is to drive and while you’re here, be sure to also visit the nearby Sant Salvador Sanctuary.

- Golf holidays are perennially popular in majorca. If your standard holiday luggage includes a set of golf clubs, be sure to visit Vall d’Or Golf on the road between S’Horta and the nearby coastal town of Portocolom. The views from this golf course are spectacular but be warned: It’s quite a challenging 18 holes.

The weather in Felanitx

Felanitx has a Mediterranean climate with dry, hot summers and rainy winters. Summer temperatures reach into the lower thirties and in winter, the average daily lows are seldom below 4 °C. September to November are the wettest months.

Getting to Felanitx

To get to Felanitx, you’ll first need to travel to Palma de majorca. The easiest is to fly in from one of the many European destinations that have direct links to the island. You can also get here by ferry from Spain. Once you’re in Palma de majorca, it’s easy to get to Felanitx, about 30 miles to the south-east. As an important regional centre, the town is on several bus routes, including the route from Palma de majorca. However, you can also hire a taxi or rent a car to take you from Palma de majorca right to the doorstep of your holiday home in Felanitx.

We arrived very late at night but was still greeted with wine and sweet breads..yum yum....We spent two weeks here visited areas all around by car. We had a couple of minor issues that were very quickly sorted out. If I had to say anything at all that could improve the kitchen is more work space is needed. Couldn't fault the pool, enough shade if needed. I wanted to book again this year but was pipped to the post and our dates have been booked already but we will see you guys again soon....Thank you very much francisco and your parents for a really nice stay....We now want to live there.....hehehehehe....Sorry for the very late review and happy renting to you. Michelle and guests....

The facilities are fantastic and we have never had such a welcome pack of food and provisions. We didn't need to shop for several days! The tranquility of Can Frare is wonderful and it is nice that you can socialise or remain independent when you like. Evenings were good fun with a few drinks and plenty of talk and laughs in the lounge area by the pool. Guy is a generous, helpful host and we thank all those there for their attention to detail. We were in the Green room and loved our own little home - it is so much more than a room! If we come back to Mallorca this is where we will stay. The surroundings and the resident animals all helped to make it a relaxing and interesting place to be. We loved it. Thankyou so much. Good luck on your travels with Molly if you get your little caravan Guy

The parsil palace is an oasis, a mental, aesthetic gold nuggets in the holiday noise of Mallorca. I'd love to have it for myself. The amazing feeling when you step inside the doors the first time. Silence. The greenery peeping inside the yard. The kitchen is an extension of the dining area where you spend these amazing evenings. The only sound is the laughter of children from the pool. Outside on the street, it is close to everything. The bakery, supermercadon and the foodmarket. Stay happy here, but rather not tell anyone about it. Let it be our secret. All the best, Carl-Mikael Larsson
