Formentor

Location

Formentor is actually a peninsula, forming the northernmost point of Mallorca.  It is around 70km from Palma.

Description

Formentor is not a resort but rather an area of outstanding beauty, frequented by tourists.   Snaking trails, steep slopes and stunning countryside are broken up only by two streets, which form the town, high up in the Serra Tramuntana mountains.

There are two points of interest at Cap de Formentor – its lighthouse and its one and only hotel.  The lighthouse was built in 1892 and now, although not open to the public, offers breathtaking views and plays host to a number of rare plants which surround it. The Hotel Formentor is particularly luxurious, having been built in 1928 and welcomed many celebrity and well-heeled guests.

From the headland, one can see a panoramic view of Menorca, Cala Fiquera and Alcudia.  Further down the 300m cliffs, there are some prehistoric caves with openings into the sea.

There are no other facilities in Formentor, although building development is taking place.  In nearby Port de Pollenca, however, there are numerous shops, bars and restaurants catering not only for tourists but also to residents.

Property for sale in Formentor

As you can imagine, there are few properties to be had in Formentor – those which are already in existence being secreted carefully and sympathetically around the peninsula.  There are, however, a handful of new developments taking place.  New villas for sale in Formentor are available at a wide range of prices, but all costing several million euros.
