SON SERVERA TOWN

 

Tranquility in the Mallorcan countryside

 

Located in a municipality offering a multitude of attractions that appeal to all tastes, Son Servera is a perfect base for a second home in Mallorca.

One of the island’s smallest towns, it is set slightly away from the idyllic north-eastern coastline and offers a bit more seclusion comparing to its neighbours. Thus, the area is a perfect choice for you if you are seeking for a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, yet want to experience the liveliness that the island has to offer, as it remains within a close proximity to the vibrant resorts.

Properties in and around of Son Servera range from fincas and country estates to exclusive villas and apartment complexes. Some homes are set in unbeatable locations facing the coast or on beautiful hills offering distant sea and valley views.

Son Servera’s architecture is a good example of the traditional Mallorcan style. In the centre of the town you’ll find the square of Plaça de Sant Joan, where is located the church of the same name. It was established in 1907 and its most remarkable elements are the façade, the fan-shaped rose window, the balconies with terrace, and the 4-storey bell tower.

There is also the Església Nova, an unfinished, roofless building that hosts religious and cultural events. Remarkably, it was designed by Joan Rubio, a disciple of the world famous Catalan architectural genius Antonio Gaudi.

Here you’ll find the main offices of the town council, the health centre, sports and cultural services, schools, banks, post office, shops, supermarkets, as well as good bars and restaurants on offer.

Located next to the sea in beautiful natural surroundings, Son Servera Golf is the first spot associated with the name of the town by golfers. Dating back to 1967, this prestigious course is the second oldest in Mallorca. Originally a 9-hole course, it has been extended to 18 holes in 2012. Challenging and fun, and with generous fairways, it offers something to everyone. There is also a friendly club house with a renowned restaurant.
