Mallorca is full of surprises and each region has its own special charm. Country estates reflect the area they are set in, rustic ones which may still have an old oil mill are mainly to be found in the north and in the mountains, some still function as an agricultural business, selling their products on local markets. The more glamorous estates for sale in Mallorca are down south, where representation and entertaining wealthy friends is an obligation. Many have lost their rustic appearance and appeal and now display a more contemporary design and style.
