Holidays in Andratx
The area and how to find your way around
Located southwest of Mallorca, Andratx is a beautiful inland town of approximately 11,000 inhabitants, which belongs to the region of the Sierra de Tramontana. Only 30 km from the capital of Palma de Mallorca and bordering the municipalities of Calvia and Estellenchs. Formed by the population centres of Andratx, Port d'Andratx, Sa Coma, s'Arraco, San Telmo and Camp de Mar. Its territory is surrounded by the impressive Tramuntana mountain range, the most important mountain range on the island, and by numerous valleys.The best areas to rent a letting in Andratx
As it is not a big city, but a small village, the distance in Andratx is not very large, which allows you to walk everywhere without much delay. This means that the area where you decide to rent your accommodation is not as important as its characteristics and the services you want to enjoy during your stay. The only thing you should consider is whether you prefer to stay in a letting in the centre of Andratx or in a rural house on the outskirts, where you can enjoy nature. However, you can also opt for something intermediate, as Holidu has many chalets in the vicinity, but just a few minutes from the town centre, even on foot. And if you are looking to enjoy the beach, it is best to stay at Puerto de Andrach or in the areas of Cala Fornells and Costa de la Calma.
Types of travellers and activities
In the course of its long history Andrach has not always been as dazzling as he is today. The name of the town can be found in documents dating back to 1236. The etymology of this name of peculiar sonority remains totally unknown. No explanation has been found for it, although some theories have been put forward, none has been officially recognized. Traces of the region's troubled past can still be found today. Since the Middle Ages, recurrent attacks by pirates from not far away North Africa made it necessary to fortify the coastline. Elements of the old defence system have been preserved, in particular the towers located on the coast and places now open to the public. These towers bear witness to the extraordinary efforts that were necessary to defend the island from the 16th century onwards. A total of fourteen fortified towers were built to protect the communities of Andrach and Calvia.Andratx for nature lovers
With an altitude of 950 meters, the impressive mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana are the delight of nature lovers. They can be reached both on foot and by bicycle, which is a great tourist attraction. In the surrounding area there are many well signposted hiking trails from which you can choose to discover the beautiful landscapes of the area. The only thing to keep in mind is that, although many are looking for rentals for July and August, the most interesting season to visit Andrach is not the summer, but the spring, when the valley surrounding the town is covered with the intense colours of the almond blossom. But instead of going for a walk, you can also enjoy this floral landscape from the terrace of a house, finca or letting in Andratx. Can you think of a better way to disconnect from the bustle and hectic pace of life in the big city than to spend a few days in contact with nature?
