Make a Santanyí holiday villa your home away from home

The small town of Santanyí is the perfect location for a rural getaway in majorca. Situated a few miles inland from the coast, it offers the best of both worlds: far enough from the tourist beaches to retain a friendly village atmosphere in beautiful countryside, but close enough to the seaside for a lovely day on the beach. With Santanyí holiday villas, you can enjoy the best that majorca has to offer without feeling overrun by other holidaymakers. Holiday accommodation in Santanyí includes options to suit your requirements, whether you want a cosy little place for a romantic getaway with your significant other or whether you’re planning a large family reunion and need a place that can sleep everyone. Many of the available properties feature swimming pools and BBQ facilities. Some are in town while others are located in the gorgeous surrounding countryside.

Things to do in Santanyí

Santanyí is the municipal seat of an eponymous region in the south-east of majorca. In 1300, King Juame II ordered the foundation of the town and described how it was to be built. The yellowish local sandstone used in many of the town’s historic buildings has also been used in other buildings of majorca, notably the cathedral in Palma de majorca. While small and not regarded as one of the island’s main tourist destinations, Santanyí is a charming town with a dynamic character.

-The history of Santanyí can be enjoyed on a simple stroll. Like so many other medieval settlements, Santanyí used to have a wall surrounding and protecting the town. A remainder of this is the Sa Porta Gate, which you pass as you enter town from Palma de majorca. Other historical sites in town include the Town Hall and the S’Abeurador watering hole.

-Cala Santanyí is ideal if you want to spend some time at the seaside, and is about 4 – 5 miles from holiday homes in Santanyí. This little village boasts a white, sandy beach that has Blue Flag status. Crystal clear waters in a sheltered cove with some interesting rock formations provide for great swimming, diving and other water sports. Sip a glass of wine at one of the waterfront restaurants or explore the 17th-century lookout tower known as Torre Nova de la Roca Fesa.

-The countryside surrounding Santanyí simply begs to be explored and you’ll find plenty of opportunities for getting out of your Santanyí apartment and go hiking and mountain-biking. Along the coast, high cliffs offer stunning views over the ocean and the little villages below. If you love history, you shouldn’t miss the chance to use your holiday accommodation in Santanyí as a base from which to explore the many ancient archaeological sitesin the area. There are more than 150 of them, including caves, burial sites and Talaiotic settlements like Son Talaies de Can Jordi.

-The Church of Sant Andreu is a beautiful church dating from the 18th century. Its most magical treasure is the organ, built by renowned organ builder Jordi Bosch, a majorca native. Carefully preserved, this instrument is beautiful not only in the way it sounds but also in the way it looks with its intricate façade. If you can, try and attend a concert in the church to hear this instrument at its heavenly best.

-Mandragó Natural Park is a short drive away from Santanyí and is a must for nature lovers. The park offers a variety of habitats, from pine forests and scrubland to wetlands and lagoons, all home to a variety of animal and plant life. The park is especially great for bird-watching and its beaches are popular for swimming. Dotted around the park you’ll find the remnants of traditional rural architecture too.

The weather in Santanyí

Santanyí’s climate is semi-arid and hot. In summer, temperatures typically reach the upper twenties while in winter, the minimum temperatures are seldom less than 5 °C. The town experiences winter rainfall while summer days are long and sunny, perfect for relaxing outside at your Santanyí holiday home.

Getting to Santanyí

Santanyí is just under 35 miles from the island’s only airport at Palma de majorca and easily reached by road. There are regular bus services but you may prefer renting a car or hiring a taxi, since you’ll want to have the freedom to explore the surrounding area too. To get to Palma de majorca, you can fly in from various European cities or you can reach the island by ferry.

Santanyi is a lovely little town, with everything you need within a few minutes walk, and lots of nice restaurants and cafes. You're spoilt for choice for nice beaches too - but Es Trenc is especially recommended. The owners are friendly and helpful. We were very sorry to leave! Highly recommended.

                                                                                                  Coming from Australia, we found Santanyi in Mallorca to be a perfect place to begin a European holiday and relax before further travel. The beautifully restored 100 year old stone house is comfortable, well presented, tastefully furnished and made us feel instantly at home. On arrival we collected the key from the wonderful Teresa who lives nearby and maintains the property in perfect condition. The kitchen was well stocked with basic ingredients and everything you could possibly need, including a modern dishwasher and washing machine. The main bedroom was comfortable with plenty of hanging space and we slept well thanks to the quiet location. The bathroom had an excellent supply of hot water and was well fitted, and the second toilet downstairs was a bonus. Free WiFi allowed us to keep in touch with home. A range of TV programs and DVDs are available. The charming stone courtyard was the perfect place to relax and enjoy a drink after a busy day of sightseeing. The sunny spring time weather was perfect for visiting the local beaches and fishing villages and being out of the main holiday season meant no crowds. We hired a car at the airport and easily found our way to Santanyi. Parking at the house is easy and is free. Easy day trips are possible from Santanyi to Palma, the east coast villages, the national parks and the beautiful mountain areas to the north west. Santanyi is well served by supermarkets and a bonus is the popular twice a week market with wonderful fresh produce. The town square and surrounding area has many good cafes, bakeries and boutiques. A favorite coffee spot was Goli, just around the corner from the house. The owner Jade, was very helpful in providing information prior to our arrival. Our week long stay was a highlight of our European holiday and we would certainly recommend the house to others.
