Travel Agents View full of many little stone houses with traditional charm and character

Campanet is situated in the north of Majorca and is full of many little stone houses with traditional charm and character. There are a few bars and shops plus a weekly market but other than the local caves and the Gothic church of Sant Miguel there is not much else on offer.

Having said that, walkers and nature lovers will love the area as there is so much walk-able countryside and coastline around. Local transport in Campanet is limited so it may be a good idea to hire a car and explore all the area has to offer. A popular resort for those who will appreciate the authentic Majorcan atmosphere.

Majorca Insider surrounded by working farms, forests of evergreen oak and pine and almond and olive trees and is a joy for bird watchers

The charming and traditional village of Campanet in the rural interior of Majorca is one of my favourites. It enjoys a beautiful aspect resting in the foothills of the imposing Tramuntana mountain range.

This is an ideal part of the island for hiking and cycling and maybe even exploring Puig Tomir, the nearest high peak. Many visitors hire horses, another magical way to see the area. The village is surrounded by working farms, forests of evergreen oak and pine and almond and olive trees and is a joy for bird watchers or those who simply like walking in the peaceful countryside. In the heart of the village there's the gothic church of Sant Miguel which dates back to 1229 at the time of the Catalan invasion of the island. There are no gift shops in the village so you'll need to visit local towns such as Pollensa or Inca for that. In fact if you're a shoe and leather fan, do pop by the bargain and discount emporiums in Inca where you'll find all kinds of fantastic leather gifts.

An attraction worth mentioning here are the natural springs of Ses Ufanes which come to life when it rains heavily, not that you'll want that on your holiday, I'm sure! All the same, it's so famous that locals and visitors travel from all over Majorca to see it. The Caves of Campanet, discovered in 1945, are another fantastic local natural phenomenon that shouldn't be missed.

Although there are some pleasant bars and restaurants in Campanet such as Sa Galleria which is good for tapas and pa amb oli (the traditional Majorcan bread and olive oil dish), and Bar Club in the main square, you might like to try Ca'n Calco opposite the village square in the nearby village of Moscari which is owned and run by a professional fishing family. They serve up the most wonderfully flavoursome local fish dishes and organic vegetables and the views of the Tramuntana mountains from the terrace are magnificent.
