Arta – A Quick Guide
Arta, situated right in the top eastern corner of Mallorca, has the most wonderful backdrop provided by the island’s Sierra de Llevant mountain range. Arta is an ancient town atop a hill that provides a distinct arty and Bohemian ambience. At Balearic-villas.com have a superb choice of holiday villas and apartments available to rent here at a wide range of prices. Here’s a guide to some of the sights and sounds of Arta to help you make the most of your dream holiday.
Parish Church – the walls of Transfiguracio del Senyor parish church are over 1 metre thick (so as to repel invaders) and built from ancient local stone. The church has no less than nine lookout towers.
Santuari de Sant Salvador – a ten minute walk up from the town centre, this is undoubtedly Arta’s main attraction. In particular, check out the multi-coloured carved statue of the Virgin Mary whose provenance dates as far back as the Roman occupation of Mallorca.
Ses Paisses ancient remains – here you’ll find the remains of a prehistoric Talayotic village dating approximately from 1300-800 BC.
Arta Summer Fair – usually held on the second Sunday in September. Predominately an agricultural theme runs throughout, and you can enjoy horseracing as well as browsing around market stalls selling fresh local produce.
Caves of Arta – this spectacular network of underground caves is an absolute must on your ‘to do’ list. Weird-shaped stalagmites and stalactites predominate as well as spectacular sea views.
Llevant Natural Park – look out for colonies of Mediterranean tortoises and many rare birds. Plenty of hiking trails and stunning sea views too. A visitor centre provides helpful information.
Hiking Heaven – enjoy a 10km walk to Ermita de Betlem, a remote religious hermitage to the northwest of town. Spectacular views over the Bay of Alcudia await.
Weekly markets – there are two lively markets held every Tuesday (day) and Friday (evening) in Arta’s Placa del Conqueridor.
Colonia de Sant Pere – a nearby laid-back resort ideal for families with young children. A fiesta takes place here on June 29th each year and is dedicated to the patron saint of fishermen, Sant Pere.
Your perfect holiday accommodation in Arta
Arta is a fabulous place to spend a relaxing family holiday in a rented villa, townhouse or apartment. It's such a pretty and prosperous little town, and fairly rural too. (Its name comes from the Arabic for ‘Garden’.)
With the dramatic Sierra de Llevant mountains as a backdrop, it’s all delightful tree-lined avenues and narrow, windy lanes. There are some special archaeological sites to enjoy too, and the naturally beautiful Caves of Arta are a must.
Whether it’s a cool, contemporary villa, a traditional sun-bleached Arta townhouse or a cosy, modern apartment, we have a variety of rental accommodation options for you to choose from. You are sure to find your ideal holiday home from home here at a good value price.
If you enjoy the outdoor life Arta is the perfect rented holiday destination. Both golf and tennis enthusiasts in particular are well catered for and there are places that rent out bicycles.
If equine pursuits appeal, you could go horseriding in the beautiful Mallorcan countryside, or take to the sea by renting a boat in nearby Colonia St Pere.
You’ve arrived in the lovely old town of Arta late in the afternoon and the sun is shining. You unpack, take a quick look around your rented villa, and it’s time to relax after your journey. So you gather friends and family round to share a few tasty nibbles. After a pleasant siesta, it’s time to explore all Arta has to offer. As the sun begins to set you take a stroll around the tree-lined avenues and ancient narrow streets taking in the delightful artisan shops before stopping for a refreshing beer in one of the small café-bars.
Feeling a little peckish, you settle on one of the delightful bohemian restaurants Arta is renowned for. Mediterranean cuisine appears to be the order of the day here, so you choose something tasty and traditional such as Frito Mallorcan from the menu, as well as a bottle of local wine to compliment.
After a post-prandial digestif you make your way home to your holiday villa in the barmy evening light. It’s been a busy first day in Arta and you sleep like a log. Because tomorrow your real holiday begins!

Once here, regular buses ferry you to Palma, Cala Rajada, Capdepera, Playa Canyamel and Manacor train station where you can catch one of the island’s fast, efficient trains.
It should be said that the beautiful historic town of Arta really is best discovered on foot. All the best sights of this lovely old town are all within easy walking distance. The town has a real bohemian vibe and many artists reside here.
