Make a holiday cottage in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar your home away from home

Majorca makes for a great holiday but many people feel that in the bid to cater to international tourists, some parts of the island have lost much of their unique, local flavour. Luckily there are still villages that can cater to visitors yet have managed to retain their authentic Majorcan identity. By renting a holiday cottage in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, you can taste true Majorcan village life without having to travel for miles to get to the nearest shop. Holiday cottages in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar are impeccably furnished and most properties come with facilities like swimming pools and a BBQ area.

Things to do in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar

Over 70 archaeological sites are evidence of the fact that Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and its surrounding area have been inhabited since prehistoric times. The village has gone by other names in the past, including Santa Maria de Bellver and Sant Llorenç de Bellver. The current name dates from 1519 and means ‘Saint Lawrence of the Thistles’.

-The market is held on Thursdays. Saint Lawrence is the patron saint of chefs and cooks and a great way to pay homage to him while staying in a Sant Llorenç des Cardassar villa is to prepare a delicious meal from local fresh produce. On Fridays you can go to the market at Son Servera for olives, pomegranates and oranges and on a Saturday, head to the market at Arta. Here you can supplement the food that you buy with purchases of woven goods, clothes, jewellery and other handicrafts to really make mealtime an event.

-The Church of Santa Maria de Bellver dates from 1360, however, throughout the centuries, extensions have been added. Inside the church there is an image of the Virgin Mary that dates from medieval times. According to legend, it was discovered in a patch of thistles soon after the Moors were conquered.

-Son Pereto is an archaeological site just over half a mile out of town on the road to Manacor. Excavations at the site have revealed the remains of a church and settlement probably dating from the 5th century. The baptismal fonts are fascinating relics of early Christianity.

- Manacor is a large town about 5 miles south-west of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar. Three of its most famous exports are artificial pearls, wooden furniture and a world tennis champion. Rafael Nadal still lives here in the town where he was born. While you can’t keep him as souvenir, you can buy some Manacor pearls, made with fish scales and looking just like the real thing, or furniture at the artesans’ market, which is held on a Saturday.

-The charming seaside towns and beaches of Eastern Majorca are within a couple of miles of holiday homes in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar. They include Cala Millor, Sa Coma and Porto Cristo. The latter is also the site of the Coves del Drach, arguably Majorca’s most spectacular caves.

The owners met us at the house and showed us around and were happy to answer any questions we had. The house itself is large and spacious with many different areas to sit and relax. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possible need and the whole house was very clean. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family.
