Rustic, rural living in Alaró

The ideal place for anyone seeking the 'true Mallorca'

The town of Alaró already has a large international community. Its central location makes it an ideal commuter town for many who work in Palma.

The traditional stone buildings common to towns on Mallorca dominate the centre of town. The further you get from the centre of the town the more choice there is. Modern villas sit side by side with traditional buildings, reflecting the varied nature of the town’s inhabitants.

This wide variety means Alaró has something for everyone. Whether you want to spend 180,000€ on a centrally located apartment or 5,000,000€ on a country estate, you will find it here.

Its central location also makes it well placed for The Academy International School. The high demand from ex-pats keeps the real estate market in Alaró healthy, and pushes average prices slightly higher than some of the surrounding villages.

The transport links to Alaró are better than ever. Improved road infrastructure means commuting to Palma by car is relatively quick. If you use public transport then the L320 local bus will take you directly to nearby Consell where you can get a train directly into the heart of Palma.
