Why move to Majorca?

From stylish resorts to a cosmopolitan capital city, you’ll enjoy a stimulating lifestyle, unique culture and amazing seafood on this perennially popular island.

Spain’s biggest island, Majorca is the most popular destination in the Balearic islands, with 28 million people passing through its busy airport every year. It is also one of the region’s most beautiful and diverse places, often described not as an island, but as a miniature continent all of its own. You will be amazed by the variety of its landscape beyond the dramatic coastline, from the fertile plains of the centre, to the alpine peaks of the Tramuntana.

Palma – the island’s capital – will undoubtedly exceed your expectations. This city of 400,000 inhabitants has a cultural richness and history which you’ll find in the opulent churches, grand public buildings and stunning private mansions of the old town. Discover Byzantine ruins, Arabic arches, medieval gothic churches and 20th century modernism – Palma is a museum of the very best of Spanish architectural styles.

As you explore the coastline, you’ll discover an equal richness. The main resorts on the east coast each have their own identity. Try Cala Figuera in the southern corner, which still has an old fashioned feel with fisherman’s boat houses linked by walkways to the very best seafood restaurants the region has to offer.

Heading to the northwest coast, stone walled villages nestle in the shadow of the Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Follow the dramatic coastline and you will find delightful villages amongst the orange and lemon groves. Soller, with its eccentric transport including an old-fashioned Orange tram and links to the capital by a narrow-gauge railway running a little wooden train.

If you’re looking for artistic inspiration, you won’t be the first. Writers, musicians and artists including Chopin, Robert Graves and Joan Miró all made homes on the island. Many still make the pilgrimage to Deià, once home to a thriving artist’s colony, which writer Gertrude Stein called ‘paradise, if you can stand it.’ Now chic, expensive and very popular, there are certainly fewer struggling artists, but you will certainly be inspired!
