PROPERTY SEARCH GUIDE SANTA MARIA DEL CAMI
Situated to the north of Palma De Mallorca on a flat central plain with stunning views of the Tramuntana mountain range, Santa Maria Del Cami is a charming little market town. But do not be fooled into thinking that it is a sleepy Mallorcan village as Santa Maria is far from that!
Santa Maria is home to one of the most impressive markets on the island and has become known as one of Mallorca’s leading artistic centres being a great place to buy locally produced arts and crafts, wine and food products. Many artisans and winemakers live in this area and the town is the home of manufacturing of ‘Roba de llengues’, a cotton that is woven into bright zigzag patterns and used in curtains, bedspreads and upholstery
Santa Maria has a long history of wine production being located right in the heart of Mallorca’s biggest wine producing region. If you are a wine lover then you are in the right place to explore some of the best wineries in Mallorca. The well-known ‘Macia Batle’ wine producer is particularly close by and many more are within easy reach for tours and wine tastings.
Santa Maria has a varied and wide selection of welcoming local bars, cafes and restaurants. There is something for all tastes and budgets here from cheap and cheerful tapas bars for casual dining to up market options for those in search of a more luxury experience. Seasonal locally produced food is the order of the day when eating in Santa Maria. The famous Moli des Torren restaurant is located on the outskirts of the town which is set in a beautiful authentic windmill and offers an impressive a la carte menu.
There are many places to stay in the areas surrounding Santa Maria to suit all budgets. Perhaps the best hotels locally are the Sa Cabana Rural Hotel & Spa, set in a stunningly converted historical finca, and the Sa Torre de Santa Eugènia. This is very unique self-catering accommodation with a restaurant set in a large converted 15th-century wine cellar.
Santa Maria attracts many international residents as it is well-placed near the motorway network, being just 30 minutes’ drive from the capital city of Palma. There are many nearby facilities such as out-of-town shopping centres and combined with the beauty of its rural surroundings this makes Santa Maria a real find.
