Villa overview - owner's description
Very nice rustic house situated in the country side in the area Porto Petro. There is a private swimming pool. Air conditioning hot and cool.
We feel that this lovely harbour side fishing village is maybe one of Mallorca’s best kept secrets. Less than an hour’s drive from Palma Airport and neighbouring the sophisticated and cosmopolitan resort of Cala D’Or, Porto Petro has retained its small town feel and the contrast of fishing boats now bobbing alongside some of the more opulent motor boats and yachts only adds to its appeal..
Bordering the harbour side, authentic Mallorquin and seafood restaurants spread their tables out towards the harbour in easy and understated manner. Pine covered hillsides climb out of the bay with the houses and apartments of a largely local population hidden away amongst them.
Over the years, this little town with its harbour side restaurants and two lovely small beaches has absorbed an increase in tourism, without succumbing to it totally. It is also a stopping place on the route between Cala d’Or and Cala Mandrago and the little train that plies its way between the two stops in the town – to the greater convenience of those staying in the port who would rather not take the 30 mins walk to this beautiful bay.
Naturally, the train also makes for an easy way of hopping into Cala d’Or, which for those with teenagers, offers the promise of a little livelier entertainment whilst still remaining more relaxed than other better known resorts.
Cala Mandrago Natural Park, 5 mins away by car extends inland from two large bays, divided by a rocky promentary with pleasant coastal path between the two. Each has golden sand beaches with foot paths disappearing amongst the pine trees bordering the beach. Water birds such as coot, redshank and black-necked grebe nest on the area.
Passers-by are often totally unaware that Porto Petro has two lovely small sandy Calas of its own, and although there is now a sizeable select hotel on the outskirts, the beaches remain remarkably uncrowded.
There is a scuba diving centre in the town and a glass bottom boat makes a relaxing trip along the coast on a regular basis. Vall d’Or Golf Club is only 15 mins drive away.
Porto Petro is a small resort just South of the more well known resort of Cala D'Or on the Southeast coast of Mallorca. Porto Petro was originally a fishing village, but it is gaining popularity among tourists because of its lovely harbor, beaches and proximity to the Mondrago Natural Park. Hotels in Porto Petro are located near the beaches - Calo des Homos Morts and Calo de sa Torre and there are a some hotels just outside the resort towards Mondrago around Cala Barca.
Activities in Porto Petro
Cruises: You can catch a boat trip along the amazing coast of south east Mallorca. The Glass Bottom boats cruise to the idylic harbour of Cala Figuera
Mini train to Mondrago: There is mini train connection to the nature park of Cala Mondrago, which is a great place to hike in beautiful landscape and relax on the beast beaches of Mallorca. Cala Mondrago is a popular attraction in Mallorca and if you're staying in Porti Petro we recommend you to visit Cala Mondrago.

Porto Petro is located within the resort of Cala dOr and is made up of hotels and tourist apartments. Since the 15th century there was a trading port here, which was used for exporting Santanví stone and importing wheat. There was even a customs office to control maritime trade, but at the end of the 19th century its trading function fell by the wayside and it was reduced to a fishing port. It is now a colourful port and is home to the Reial Club Nàutic de Porto Petro (Royal Sailing Club) most of the boats here are pleasure craft and this is the departure point for boat trips along the coast to the Cabrera Natural Park. Construction of the first buildings here started at the beginning of the 19th century and in 1959 the tourist transformation started with the building of the Hotel Nereida,
