Make a holiday cottage in Puigpunyent your home away from home

Puigpunyent is a quaint Majorcan settlement hidden in the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains on the island’s magnificent west coast. Owing to the fact that the township lays a little off the beaten tourist trail, it has managed to maintain the old-world Spanish charm that much of Majorca once shared. This makes the region perfect for those who want to get back to nature and escape the hustle and bustle of city life, whilst still having access to all the modern luxuries that a Puigpunyent holiday cottage provides. The holiday cottages in Puigpunyent listed at HomeAway are well maintained, well facilitated and enjoy lovely locations with some offering facilities such as private gardens and pools.

Things to do in Puigpunyent

Whilst Puigpunyent may be a small settlement by Majorcan standards, this has absolutely no effect on the quantity and quality of the attractions and activities on offer. As the township is relatively remote however, a hire car is recommended if you plan on exploring further afield.

-The Beaches on Majorca are known to be some of the cleanest and most beautiful in the world, and whilst your Puigpunyent holiday villa is not located directly on the coast, there are at least 16 breathtaking beaches within a 30 kilometre radius. Some of the more popular locations include: Sant Elm beach, Cala Llamp Bay and Camp de Mar beach. Depending on which seaside location you visit, you may also like to try some of the various water sports on offer such as snorkeling, diving, sea kayaking, sailing and kite surfing.

-The La Reserva Puig de Galatzo nature park makes for a great family day out and is situated only 2 kilometres north of most holiday homes in Puigpunyent. The 3.7 kilometre walk through the park will bring your family face to face with bears, pigs, turtles and owls, in addition to various other amazing creatures. The park is also great for older children, as they can engage in some of the adrenaline pumping adventure activities on offer, such as abseiling, rock climbing and zip-lining.

-Hiking has become extremely prevalent on Majorca in recent years, and as such, there are numerous great hiking trails available, particularly in the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains. One of the best hikes near your Puigpunyent holiday cottage is definitely the “Stepping Back in Time” circuit. This trail begins just outside Puigpunyent at the Son Fortesa manor house, before winding 10 kilometres though olive groves, oak forests and wineries, finally ending back in Puigpunyent.

-Cycling is another great pastime for holiday makers on Majorca, and the area around Puigpunyent is especially suited to road cycling, with its steep hills challenging even the most experienced rider. If you’re more interested in a leisurely ride however, you will also be spoiled for choice, as the region around Puigpunyent has numerous fantastic scenic biking trails.

-The historical sites near Puigpunyent are some of the most interesting on Majorca and include numerous talayots (large Bronze Age stone structures) such as those at Son Serralta, Ses Casotes and Son Burguet, in addition to the ancient cemetery at Son Bru. The exploration of these sites consequently makes for a great day trip, in addition to giving you a little insight into ancient life on Majorca.

The weather in Puigpunyent

Puigpunyent experiences cool damp winters and warm dry summers, as is typical of a Mediterranean climate. This results in the period between May and November being the best time weatherwise to book your Puigpunyent holiday villa. The mild winters here can also be great however, as the tourist crowds tend to abandon the island, leaving you to explore the island’s pristine beaches and great historical attractions in peace.

Getting to Puigpunyent

Although Puigpunyent is situated only 17 kilometres from Majorca’s only international airport in Palma de Majorca, it can be a little complicated to reach owing to its location in the mountains. A taxi or hire car from the airport, or a public bus from Palma city, will however, have you at the doorstep of your stunning Puigpunyent holiday home in roughly 25 minutes.

The Studio

5 of 5
The Studio is a modern, well equipped apartment . It has an open-plan layout which is bright and airy. It opens out on to a terrace looking over the village with excellent views of the valley to the east and the mountains to the north, with much of the village seen in the foreground. The accommodation is very comfortable. There is easy access to the village centre which is just down the hill. We were especially impressed with the people of the village, who are friendly and helpful. Few tourists stay in the village so when you are there for a few days you are soon recognised by many residents. During the day many bikers pass through but stop only for a coffee and a brief look around. There are lots of options for walkers as long as you are happy with moderately steep and often fairly rough terrain. The bus service to Palma is regular and generally reliable, although I am sure most visitors (unlike us) will have a hired car. There are three restaurants and two bars serving food. The standard of hygiene is good and the food is generally excellent. There is a moderately-sized supermarket and one or two smaller, more traditional shops. An attractive feature is the regular gathering of families in the square in the early evening . Here the children run around and play games whilst the adults socialise over a beer or glass of wine - a great sense of community. This is a great place to stay if you want to avoid the disco or night club type of environment.

A truly lovely house in a lovely village - perfect relaxing getaway!

5 of 5
Elva and the house were exactly what we needed - a home from home to just kick back and relax. The house is very well appointed - even a wine fridge, which is the cherry on the cake as far as I am concerned! The location is properly in the mountains, so as long as you are ok with hairpin bends, there are some amazing drives and views in the northwest of the island. And Palma is only 30 mins easy drive. We had a lovely holiday - thank you!
