Campos is a residential area that is located south of the island and has 9 km2 of coastline. Boarded by the municipalities of Porreras, Llucmajor, Felanitx, Ses Salines and Santanyí.
This town preserves the appearance of a rural population since until two years ago it lived from tourism. The mills and orchards of Campos are the most characteristic elements of the area, but to this day they are disappearing.
Campos is a peaceful, rural town, and it is a good option to live all year round. Its population is very varied but the Germans stand out. Tourism is not its strong point, it’s not saturated with visitors as other towns in Mallorca because it attracts more independent travelers.
Another main element is the reddish of the town hall’s facade, as do many of its houses.
In Campos, there are still some historic buildings like the church of Sant Julià, where the famous painting of Christ painted by the artist Murillo can be found. And there is a wide variety of exhibitions in the museum of Sister María Rafaela and the church of San Julian.
Nowadays, this locality, it’s re-emerging from the dairy industry with the restructuring of many windmills used for irrigation. Even so, during the day Campos offers all the necessary items to spend day to day, but for a larger purchase, the nearest towns are Llucmajor or Palma.
The main attraction of Campos is its proximity to nature. The town has an excellent access to national parks, forests, and mountains around it. It has spectacular views of the Mallorcan vineyards.
It is near to the beach of Es Trenc, which has kilometers of sand and crystal clear where there are some beach bars to enjoy a day at the beach. As the town is close to the coast, the water sports in the area are always a good option.
The access to it from the main roads is scarce, and the public transport is not very fast in the area, so it is a good option to rent a car to travel to Campos.
The offer of houses in the town is varied and it is possible to find a house for less than 250,000 euros. It is the best option for people that are looking for a property with an extensive ground, although these rise in price reaching around 500,000 euros.
There are some more modern villas in its surroundings, but most are rustic houses for a million euros.
