Property for sale in Santa María del Camí

Beautiful property settled amongst the vineyards of the Binissalem wine region


The small town of Santa María del Camí has wonderful rural charm whilst still being very well connected to Palma and all of the associated urban conveniences. Set at the foot of the breath-taking Tramuntana mountain range and nestled amongst the many small and medium-sized family-run vineyards of the Binissalem region, it is unsurprising that in recent times the picturesque village’s popularity has steadily grown as a place to settle.

The residents of Santa María del Camí are a real cross-section of society showing its universal appeal and injecting a cosmopolitan vibe whilst retaining the air of a traditional Mallorcan village. Daily life on the ancient streets of Santa María sees young parents who have just moved to the area mingling with older generations of Mallorcan residents whose families have been there for centuries.

Foreigners are often attracted to Santa María wanting an authentic holiday retreat or second home and come mostly from Germany, England and Scandinavia. Older couples and families settle into Santa María for a simpler way of life, and a smattering of yacht workers also choose to put down roots here, perhaps wanting a taste of inland Mallorca away from the sea.

Where to buy a property in Santa María del Camí:

The Village Centre & Market Square

The village centre and main square of Santa María is the hub where locals convene daily to run their errands or enjoy a catch up over a coffee and fresh pastry. Although small, the village boasts many boutiques, cafés, restaurants and shops, providing all the basic necessities for village life. In terms of residential property, the centre itself is mainly populated with typical Mallorcan townhouses. Some have already been tastefully reformed to international standards, ensuring that the classic old charm and character are maintained, whilst others are still in need of refurbishment – ideal for investors. A handful of high-end apartments can be found in converted old town palaces and are available for sale for between 400.000€ and 1.2€ million euros.

Cami de Coanegra & Cami es Raiguer

These particular zones on the Santa María outskirts are peppered with large and exclusive country estates and rural properties set on sizeable plots of land. Often stone-clad but with modern interiors and finishes, these well-appointed properties usually cost between 2.5 and 6 million euros. Taking a hike through Cami de Coanegra and Cami es Raiguer allows you to be privy to a few of the island’s most stunning and elegant privately-owned estates or ‘possessions’ including Son Torrella, Son Oliver, Son Roig and Son Pou. These historic properties have previously been working farms and are set on dramatic landscapes surrounded by nature, orchards and olive groves.

Types of property in Santa María del Camí

IN THE VILLAGE

Santa María is almost viewed as another ‘barrio’ of Palma due to its proximity to the bustling capital. As such, high-end penthouses and apartments can be priced above what one might expect for a small village (yet still below Palma Old Town prices). You can find a mix of traditional and modern townhouses and apartments, all with the traditional outward look of an authentic Mallorcan village with charming rustic facades of preserved blonde stone. In the village these properties start at around 300.000 €, fetching up to 1.300.000 € for luxury apartments in reformed palaces.

A 3 to 4-bedroom house in the village that needs to be reformed can start at around 400.000 €, but if the property has undergone work and renovations prices begin at 650.000 € and go up to 2.500.000 €. These houses typically feature lovely exposed wooden beams and visible interior stone walls, whilst the exteriors are stone-clad and complete with ancient arches and picturesque Mediterranean gardens.

ON THE OUTSKIRTS

The outskirts of Santa María offer rural country homes, high-end fincas, and manor estates benefiting from extensive grounds and expansive views. These properties can range from 1 million to 8 million euros depending on quality, size, positioning and legality.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

If undertaking a new build in Santa María it is important to be aware that you can now only build up to 300m2 maximum. Some building plots do still exist with an old license allowing one to build up to 500m2, but these are in high demand and will cost double the price. For top locations expect to part with 1.2 to 2 million euros. Additionally, the more hills and slopes there are on the land often means the grounds will be more protected, so it is advisable to check on legalities and possible infractions.

What the Experts Say About Property in Santa María del Camí

  • “Santa María is especially great for hiking in the cooler months. I recommend the walk towards Coanegra as it is flat and also suitable for children. Have lunch or dinner in Living Dreams or Fellini, a local pizzeria which serves delicious Italian food. For shopping visit the Alice vom Baum boutique, an international designer who spent many years in India. She designs and sells her high-quality clothes, and also designs properties. The ecological market on Sunday by the square is fantastic. They have a large selection of organic food and it is always a nice ambience to meet a friend and have a coffee – a perfect start into the day.”
