Puigpunyent – Esporles - Establiments
Set in the magical setting of the Tramuntana mountains, this typical Mallorquin village Puigpunyent largely unspoilt and situated only 13km, 15 minutes, from the outskirts of Palma. There are a number of small bars and restaurants in the town, including the Rose www.facebook.com/TheRoseRestaurantPuigpunyent and the two restaurants at the Grand Hotel Son Net, the Oleum and the Gazebo www.sonnet.es/the-hotel.html . The hotel Sonnet with its dramatic views over the valley is one of Mallorca´s finest hotels, a converted old manor house that attracts many of the island`s most famous visitors.
There is also a good small supermarket, chemist and shops selling local produce, so one does not need to make frequent visits to Palma. For many years it has been much loved by foreign residents and locals as a permanent home. For families with children there is a nature theme park, La Reserva just 5 minutes away. Just 11km away, further into the mountains is the idyllic village of Galilea, and some parts of the village enjoy sea views. Close to the church is a bar and restaurant and properties here have a special charm. 12 minutes away below Galilea is the village of Galilea and the beaches of Paguera are 25 minutes away (15km).
An easy 25 minute drive, mostly by motorway takes you to Esporles, a Mallorquin village set in a valey at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains. Many of the properties here are blessed with spectacular views with large plots of land, and the abundance of water via underground wells means many of the properties have incredible landscaped gardens. The village has an imposing church and pretty town square with a number of shops, bars and restaurants. Esporles is famed as one of the best places on the island to eat the famous local dish of suckling pig at the Meson La Villa restaurant www.inpalma.com/en/meson-la-villa. 5km away is the “living” museum and famous visitors´ centre of La Granja www.lagranja.net/en , an old manor house that has been restored with also a bar and restaurant.
