What is a Finca?
Finca means as much as manor or farm and usually means country houses with larger plot proportions. Newly built incas are constructed with modern building materials and equipped with modern building technology, without losing the original country house style. To reflect the original impression of a finca, the newly built fincas are clad with natural stone facades. A private pool is found in most of the fincas.
What do you have to consider when buying a finca?
Mallorcan real estate is also subject to strict building regulations. When buying real estate, especially when buying a finca, we advise our clients to check with an attorney of their choice (also with our legal department) for legality of the built area, possible rights of way, burdens etc.. A visual check with a recognised property appraiser is also often useful. Fincas in need of renovation are tempting challenges for real estate investors and can be an interesting and lucrative investment if they are acquired cheaply and renovated to a high standard. We would be pleased to introduce you to architects and reliable construction companies.
Your estate in a quiet location
The country houses from the centre of the island to the north of Mallorca are popular destinations for tourists who want to explore the beautiful countryside. Around the fincas many Mallorcans farm extensively - fincas with large plots of land are also very popular among horse lovers. If you do not want to use the house yourself throughout, you can rent your finca with a valid license to holidaymakers and thus earn a large part of the purchase price within a few years. However, many legal requirements need to be clarified here, but more on this later.
Vacation in the countryside, far away from the tourist centres: The beautiful life in the rural corners of Majorca
Yes, there are many alternatives to classic package tours on „Malle“ with beer halls and skyscraper complexes on the beach. Far away from Mallorca’s party beaches there are picturesque slopes and quiet communities with small villages. Santanyí and Artà in the east of the island host luxurious inns and restaurants - fincas in these communities are perfect for inviting friends and family or for a cosy evening out. The weekly markets in Felanitx in the south of the island attract visitors from all over the world. Here you can find vegetables, fish and Spanish specialities at reasonable prices and marvel at regional craftsmanship. If you want to have a city nearby, you should choose a finca in the surrounding area of Palma. The airport would then be in the immediate area.
