The traditional town of Llucmajor is located inland in the south of Mallorca within its sprawling eponymous municipality. Despite its 'city' status, Llucmajor has the charming ambience of a rustic village with a pretty square lined with bars, cafés and trees. Authentic Mallorquin townhouses are attractive to real estate investors due to their historical beauty and close proximity to local amenities. Or perhaps you'd prefer a quieter life in more rural surroundings, in a spacious finca with sweet almond groves? If this authentic lifestyle fascinates you, Engel and Völkers will help you to find your perfect property in Llucmajor which is situated just a short drive from some of the prettiest white sand calas in Mallorca, making it a property hotspot for those who want to spend their summers relaxing on Mediterranean shores.
Living in Llucmajor and what to do
Llucmajor, the largest geographical municipality on the island, is the ideal central base to explore Mallorca. Start your days with a freshly-roasted coffee in the atmospheric town square where majestic sandstone buildings stand proud with their vibrant green shutters. Marvel at the impressive convent and churches and wander the quaint winding streets. In fact, the area is steeped in history and home to the oldest “Talayots” sites on the island. Shoe-making is still one of the main traditional industries so sampling artisanal footwear is a must; the vibrant weekly markets are also a key attraction. Outside the town, which is picturesquely set at the foot of the verdant Randa Hills, you can drive into the countryside past the apricot and almond trees to visit the beaches of Cala Pi, Cala Blava or S'Arenal for a swim or snorkel in the crystalline sea. If you are feeling more active and adventurous, why not take a hike or cycle from Llucmajor to the stunning cove of Cala Pi?

Watch the world go by as you sample tender suckling pig, succulent octopus served on a bed of crisp potatoes or fresh lime-infused ceviche. Quina Brasa is the best steakhouse in the square where you can dine on Iberian pork and chargrilled vegetables or a perfectly-cooked rack of lamb washed down with a glass of fine Mallorquin red wine. Alternatively, on the outskirts of Llucmajor, Las Bóvedas is a chic restaurant that is rurally situated within the luxurious boutique hotel of Son Julia. Sample gourmet dishes made with the freshest local ingredients or experience a sensory sensation with the exquisite Asian-fusion dishes like tuna tartare with lime kefir and spicy ginger, croaker fish in a creamy coconut sauce with pak choi or prawn dim sum with Iberian pancetta.
