How is Majorca actually? It is difficult to answer this question because the biggest of the Balearic Islands has so many facets that it cannot be described in few words. Consequently, deciding to buy a country house in Majorca should make think about one’s expectations of the new island home and also one’s first need. One thing is clear: the Majorcan real state market has offers for all budgets.
The expression “finca” itself already evoques, according to European linguistic conventions, a country house in Majorca sheathed as a little jewel in the Mediterranean landscape, whatever its location is: between the mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana that borders the island from its western most point to the most northerly corner, or between the plains of the south and center of the island, and also between the undulating oriental landscape, markedly agricultural. Formerly, a "finca" in Majorca was a plot in which a Majorcan farmer cultivated its vineyards, orange and olive trees, where he built a small building to have a place to rest and from which he left the next day to begin the sowing and harvest of agricultural products. Currently, Europeans associate this property with a picturesque and romantic house in the countryside. A synonym of rest and peace in entire nature.
Some of these fincas in Majorca are centenary buildings and are part of the Majorcan historical framework. Large tracts of land with ancient olive trees, orange and lemon trees, forming extensive natural gardens tell the Mallorcan history and are considered luxury properties. Others, on the other hand, have retained their original charm and are accessible to all budgets.
In recent years there has been a trend towards new construction, designed according either to old tradition style or folowing a modern minimalist Mediterranean, without ruling out any possibility. Buying a finca in Mallorca is a decision for a lifetime. Whether with swimming pool, in the mountains, on the Majorcan plane or near the 580 kilometers of beaches.
