Palma de Mallorca districts

Spain : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
I have been looking on the internet at flats for sale in Palma de Mallorca. I have not been there so I was hoping those familiar with the town could help me.

One estate agent has the following to say:

"The most desirable real estate areas are the Old Town and peaceful Calatrava district, the bohemian district of Santa Catalina (with a great market, and numerous restaurants and bars), and the attractive old fishing village of Portixol."

I have seen a couple of listings for flats in Santa Catalina that look appealing. However, from what I can see, Santa Catalina is quite an enclosed area and I have the following concerns:

1. The flat is likely to enjoy a general lack of sunshine. In the summer this may be a plus, but in the winter the flat would be cold and dull.

2. The estate agent's quote (see above) describes it as a "bohemian district [with] numerous restaurants and bars ". Another agent described it as "vibrant". Am I to infer that Santa Catalina is a bit tatty and noisy?

I am looking for an "upmarket" district that is within walking distance of the centre of Palma, but which is quiet and not enclosed. If someone could suggest a district that fits this requirement, I would be most grateful.

Many thanks.
