The comarca of the Sierra de Tramuntana, includes the costal towns of Calvia Andratx, Soller and Pollensa in the far north of the island and reaches along all of the western shore of the island including the villages of the Tramuntana inside the World Heritage area awarded by UNESCO in 2011. Its municipalities vary between the heavily developed areas of the south west focused on tourism and smaller communities within the Tramuntana which have strong environmental regulations and protected areas. Property is finite and costly, reform and construction are regulated and any infringement of the regulations is normally fined.
The capital of Mallorca and the centre of administration of the autonomous region of the Balearic Islands. A popular holiday destination because of its historic gothic city, marinas, and night life. The city is divided in to five areas Centre the Gothic city, Nord the area above the old city walls to the north of the Gothic city. Ponent to the west with a boundary with the district of Calvia. Llevant to the east and Palma Platja with boundaries with the Pla de Mallorca and Migjorn.As with all capitals prices raise in the central area of the city and outside space and views add value to any property.
Divided into two regions by geography the Raiguer which covers the area from north of Palma to the bay of Pollensa and the Pla de Mallorca the plains to the south east of the Tramuntana.
Situated on the old roads which ran north to south though the centre of the island the Raiguer is a mixture of large villages which have always benefited from beginning a the centre of trading and smaller villages in the mountains which produced essential products for the capital city, coal, charcoal, ice and livestock. Property prices are relatively high with demand from commuters from Palma and overseas buyers.
The most agricultural region of the island famous for the windmills which are emblematic of Mallorca, the villages are smaller quieter and the pace of life is slower. Without the wealth of the Raiguer region from commerce in the 18th and 19th centuries properties are smaller in the villages and rural buildings are often on smaller plots. Prices are lower than the Raiguer in the less well known towns and villages but equally expensive in villages close to Palma such as Santa Eugenia and Sencelles which are also in demand from commuters from Palma.
Llevante the north eastern area of Mallorca best know for the Parque Natural de la Peninsula de Levante a more rugged landscape than the central area of the island with less agriculture and a wilder feel, the region has far fewer natural bays and beaches than other regions so has less tourism. There are less properties of all categories both village houses and country properties recently reformed country properties are often highly priced but small village properties are of lower value as there is little demand from commuters and overseas buyers are only those who can afford to spend extended periods of time in Mallorca without the need to make regular use of the airport.
To the south east of Palma de Mallorca the region has become more popular with commuters since the motorway was extended and improved to Campos beyond Campos and along the coastal areas tourism is centred on what were once fishing ports and the salt flats, Ses Salines and Colònia de Sant Jordi are extremely popular, but away from the coast properties can be found at a reasonable price though as with the Llevant it is a region which suits those who can stay for an extended period and do not need to commute to Palma each day or use the airport regularly.
