Campanet, situated in the north east of Mallorca, is home to around 2,000 people. It’s a lovely old town that has avoided so much of the large scale development experienced by so many Mallorcan towns in recent years.
Lying about 25 miles north of the capital Palma, Campanet has a distinct authentic village appeal and is a popular choice when looking to rent that dream holiday villa in Mallorca.
Considering Campanet is somewhat off the beaten track, it’s extremely easy to reach by car. The main Ma-13 motorway runs less than a kilometre to the east of town and connects with Palma and its international airport about 25 minutes drive away.
Situated partly in the mountains and partly on the flat Mallorcan plane, Campanet has a distinct non-touristy appeal, attracting many people who want to rent holiday accommodation away from the busier areas of the island.
It is such an enjoyable experience to be able to stroll up and down Campanet’s sloping streets, many of which emanate from the town’s main plaza and the impressive parish church. There is a weekly market too, every Tuesday, selling fresh local produce.
Another local attraction is Campanet’s ancient well of d’en Gateit. Dating back to the thirteenth century, it served as the town’s communal well right up to the 1960s. The ancient thirteenth century San Miquel chapel on the outskirts of town is also worth a visit.
On the lower slopes of slopes of Campanet you will find a fascinating collection of cool mountain springs which often fill up with water from rainfall over Mallorca’s beautiful Tramuntana mountain range.
The most spectacular of Campanet’s springs are undoubtedly Ses Fonts Ufanes. These come to life during periods of heavy rainfall and feed the plains of Sa Pobla as we’ll as the famous wildlife wetlands of S’Albufera.
Many are attracted to sleepy Campanet for the peace and quiet the place provides. However, the locals also really know how to party! The fiesta of Sant Victoria extends over eight long days in the middle of July. Not to be missed.
Another fabulous fiesta hosted by Campanet is fiesta of the patron saint of the town, Sant Miquel towards the end of September.
Campanet enjoys an annual May Fair where the town’s agricultural past and present are celebrated. Usually held on the second Sunday in May, expect displays of agricultural machinery, photographic and art exhibitions, and of course, wonderful opportunities to sample the local produce.
So whether you’re looking to rent a family friendly villa, a gorgeous traditional townhouse or a chic bijou apartment for a special romantic break, we at Balearic Villas would be happy to help you find your dream holiday property in Campanet.
