5 things to know about buying property in Mallorca

Know what makes your ideal property

For yachties, there is no more appropriate holiday home that this house in Port Andratx, which is as luxurious as a superyacht. Contemporary interiors with modern amenities balance out a Mediterranean, stone-clad exterior, while a 25 metre berth lies at the end of the staircase-like gardens. Characterful and spacious with six en suite bedrooms to accommodate guests, this incredible waterfront property is not to be missed.

Current owner Graham Wellesley says he bought the property having only seen a picture of it. “When we decided to buy a home, I wanted somewhere without a busy commute from Palma, not too German and not too English. We looked at several properties, then this property came onto the market,” he says. “I’m very into sailing and yachting, and I also didn’t see the point of going to a Mediterranean island where you didn’t have access to the sea. I said we have to take advantage of this opportunity now. So I started the purchasing process before I even came back to Europe.”

While the properties available in Mallorca are extremely varied, surprisingly few have immediate access to the water. Wellesley, who has recently placed his unique estate on the market and has been holidaying in Mallorca for more than 35 years, explains the importance of knowing what you want from a holiday home.

“The reason I bought it knowing the island was its pure rarity. I knew the port for sailing – it’s really quiet here and Port Andratx is its own micro-community. Most people come back every year so everyone knows each other and it’s very friendly,” Wellesley says. “For the children it’s very sociable and I don’t have to drive them everywhere, they can walk down to see their friends and walk home completely independently and it’s totally safe.”
