If you are dreaming of owning a home on Mallorca, let me recommend reading the Last Word on page 188 to understand a little better how locals have been enjoying life on the island for generations. Whether they have multiple homes – by the sea, in the countryside or in the city – they know how to fully embrace the wonderful lifestyle that Mallorca has to offer.
We’ve dedicated this issue to life in the country – with a cluster of articles on the topic that we hope will inspire you to look beyond the coastline for perhaps a slower, more authentic lifestyle in the central region of the island. On page 36 we take a look at the latest property market report that shows the growing trend towards moving to the country, and how it still represents good value for money.
We’ve spoken to experts in real estate, architecture, garden design and project management who can make your dream home a reality. If building your own country pile in the midlands is what gets you excited then we give you plenty of useful advice to avoid the major pitfalls, starting on page 50.If you want to put your green fingers to work, but don’t want the hassle of buying land, check out the article about Banc de Terra on page 68 to enable you to find the perfect piece of farming paradise to grow your own vegetable garden or even raise animals.
We also feature a range of stunning properties currently on the market and others that we hope will inspire you when decorating your own home.
