If you are looking for a property to live in Palma de Mallorca, places like La Vileta or Son Rapinya are great options for buying a house. Why? One of the reasons is that these two neighbourhoods are very close to the city centre and at the same time close to nature, just a few minutes from the Serra de Na Burguesa, part of the Serra de Tramuntana.
In addition, both have experienced a remarkable upswing in recent years and have established themselves as perfect residential areas, especially in the last two decades. Their charm and easy access to the city centre have turned Son Rapinya and La Vileta into two ideal areas to invest in property and buy a house in Palma de Mallorca.
As for La Vileta, the original nucleus was built in the 18th century around the Son Palmer estate. For many decades, the area was inhabited by the farmers and workers of this estate, as well as by the workers of the quarries and gypsum mines of the region. From the 19th century onwards, it became a summer resort for Palma's bourgeoisie, who sought refuge from the summer heat here.
This neighbourhood is particularly charming and its streets and squares still reflect its agricultural origins. However, it has undergone a major transformation and is now a lively neighbourhood with all the services you could need. If you want to buy a property in Palma, La Vileta is one of the best places to own a home.
Son Rapinya, like La Vileta, is located in the Poniente district. Like many other neighbourhoods of Palma, it also owes its origin to an old estate that was located in the area and used to be called Son Llull. In the 19th century, Son Rapinya became a place for second homes and leisure activities for the inhabitants of Palma. They were attracted by the lush pine forests and the privileged view over the bay of Palma, reaching as far as the island of Cabrera on a clear day. Later, due to population growth, families who came from other parts of the island to work in Palma or wealthy citizens began to build houses or villas here.
Today, the neighbourhood has been modernised and is one of Palma's residential areas par excellence. It offers everything: proximity to the city centre and nature, a quiet atmosphere, supermarkets and other shops, a wide range of restaurants and leisure facilities, and the best local and international schools.
