The city of Andratx is one of the oldest cities on the island. It is located only 30 kilometers from Palma de Mallorca, in the Southwest of Mallorca and in one of the valleys of the Serra de Tramuntana.
The city is well-known for its narrow picturesque streets, its historical heritage and its galleries of modern and contemporary art. This might be the main feature that has attracted several celebrities to the area and has managed to serve as a source of inspiration to many artists and writers.
In spite of being a small city, with narrow streets with a long history, many urban residences were built in the proximity near the center of Andratx. Thus, it allows residents to live close to the charm of the city but in a more open space.
There are luxury houses built in this area, and in general, the price of housing is higher than in any other area of Andratx due to the characteristics. Even so it is possible to find houses on the outskirts with views of the sea and mountains with better pricing compared to the rest of the island.
You have to be sure when choosing an area in the surroundings of Andratx. For example, S’Arraco and Camp de Mar are two luxury locations, where the housing prices will usually be higher. Also nearby is the small coastal town of Sant Elm, with several restaurants specializing in fish and seafood.
Even so, despite Andratx being quite an international area, it offers an authentically Mallorcan experience for those who want to stay and live here. Locals in the area are Mallorcan, with international visitors needing a dictionary from time to time to communicate in Catalan and Spanish.
