In the heart of the Serra Tramuntana mountains lies the sleepy town of Banyalbufar. Just 22 miles from Mallorca's capital Palma, Banyalbufar boasts Old world charm and friendly locals, all of which can be enjoyed from our selection of Banyalbufar vacation rentals! Families and travelers of all prerogatives come to explore ancient watchtowers like Torre de ses Animes, wander the footpaths meandering through the hills, and swim alongside fishing vessels setting out to sea at the bay of Port des Canonge.
The mountainous community is located on the northwestern slope of Mallorca island. The gorgeous hideaway is a popular destination for Balearic Islands vacation rentals in the Serra Tramuntana mountains. Our growing selection of Banyalbufar vacation rentals are perched in the hilltops, where the terraced slopes lead down to the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
Stroll past vegetable orchards and aqueducts as you wind your way to some of the island's best beaches. Locals and tourists alike enjoy sun-kissed days at the swimming coves of Cala Banyalbufa, Es Port des Canonge, Son Bunyola, and Es Corral Fals. Head out early from these Spain vacation rentals for a pretty drive or bike ride full of sweeping views of the terraced hillsides. The windy roads (especially just south of the village) attract casual motorists and cyclists year round, and are lined with olive and lemon trees. Tour the nearby Torre del Verger monument just in time for an unbelievable sunset, or visit mid summer for the annual jazz festival offering music just as inspiring as the landscape!
You're never far from a tapas plate and rich glass of wine while staying in our Banyalbufar vacation rentals! Indulge in an afternoon glass of wine and local cuisine on the patio of Son Tomàs, or treat yourself to a nearby vineyard tasting at Bodega Son Vives. Enjoy a romantic dinner at Pegason y El Pajarito Enmascarado, and toast to the perfect evening with a nightcap at Antonia Cabot Tomás. In the morning, awake invigorated to do it all over again!
Despite the rural landscape, you're still within easy access to amazing sightseeing just 30 miles from town. Nightclubs, Gothic cathedrals, and shopping districts await in Palma de Mallorca, the island's largest city. Visit Castell d'Alaró, an ancient site well-known for its history and hiking opportunities, or marvel at the craftsmanship, stained glass murals, and devote worship at the Santuari de Lluc monastery, known for the skilled boys' choir.
The quaint community Valldemossa offers endless cafes and shops, and is home to the stunning Valldemossa Charterhouse and old pharmacy. Unique architecture and food await travelers further inland!
Time seemingly vanishes with the breeze when you're visiting our Banyalbufar vacation rentals. Maybe it's the mix of Old World cathedrals, modern conveniences, and the smell of the lemon trees. Or maybe it's just Spain!
