Reasons to buy a property in Santanyí

Santanyí is the name of both a town and municipality in West Mallorca. With gorgeous architecture, beautiful beaches, and Mediterranean charm, it’s easy to see why buying a property in Santanyí is a popular choice.

Where to buy – Santanyí town

The town of Santanyí is home to little cobbled streets lined with honey-coloured buildings. As you wander around the town, you’ll notice many properties are made from locally sourced sandstone, creating a traditional and slightly bohemian feel. There are lovely restaurants and cafés dotted around, with options for laid-back outdoor dining. 

History lovers are likely to notice the fortified, old town walls, originally constructed to protect against pirate attacks. The tower was added a few centuries later.

Today, the town hosts a twice weekly market, thought to display wares from over 150 vendors. There, you can pick up creative handmade pieces, quirky souvenirs, fruit and veg, Mallorcan products, and more.

A nearby beach can be found at Cala Santanyí, about 10 minutes’ drive from the town. Potential buyers who wish to be close to the sea may prefer to find properties in the Cala Santanyí area.
