Palma de Mallorca districts
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.
