The environment of Son Gris

Selva

The best starting point to get to know Mallorca

Where to eat

The gastronomy of Mallorca is very rich and varied. His cookbook is exceptional and brings together on the table the cultivation of vegetables and cereals from the countryside, the raising of pork and its tasty sausages, and fishing on the shores of the Mediterranean.

In the same town as Selva, we recommend the Restaurant Miceli , with market cuisine, local product and Mallorcan recipes updated, by the hand of the chef Marga Coll .

In Caimari, 3 Km. from Selva, you will find the Restaurant Ca Na Toneta . It stands out for its native seasonal cuisine, with products from local producers and the orchard of the sisters María and Teresa Solivellas, at the head of the establishment.

Swimming in the pool

The location of Son Gris in the center of town, at a crossroads of old roads, does not allow us to have pool. However, we invite our guests to take a bath in the municipal pool Selva, where the Majorcan go. We have free tickets s for those staying at Son Gris.

The church of Sant Llorenç

The church of Sant Llorenç, patron of Selva, of Gothic origin rebuilt in the seventeenth century, is cut out at the top of the village with the Sierra de Tramontana and the limpid blue sky as a backdrop. This small town is a privileged piece of the authenticity of the interior Mallorca. Walking through its streets is a pleasant experience in itself. You will discover an amazing architectural heritage: the great manor houses of the 19th century, old mills and oil mills from the 17th century, the most popular architecture …

Market of Selva

The markets are part of the Mediterranean culture. In Selva there is a weekly one, every Wednesday morning (from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.), in the Plaça Major of the town. Stops of fruit, vegetables, legumes, flowers, plants, clothing, handicrafts …, they gather the Mallorcan people in a meeting and living. The Ses Herbes Fair or the San Llorenç festival, in June and August respectively, are popular celebrations that mark the pulse of Selva’s vitality.

Caimari, Moscari, Biniamar, Binibona

Strolling through the small towns and villages near Selva, belonging to the same municipality, is delicious. Their names of ancient resonances bring echoes of centuries of history, but also the calm of the Mallorcan interior life of our days. In the surroundings you will enjoy the nature and the change of seasons: The flowering of the almond groves, the silvered leafy olive trees laden with olives, the incredible millenary specimens with their turned trunks, the leafy forests of oaks and pine trees, in a agricultural landscape marked by small farms delimited by traditional dry stone walls.

Sierra de Tramontana

This mountain range that supports and protects the town of Selva is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A mountain range that reflects both the legacy of Arab and Western culture in the relationship between man and the natural environment. Here is the best hiking route in Mallorca. Called “Ruta de la Pedra en Sec”, with a route of 90 km. It is divided into eight stages. The old “Possessions” of the sierra, -large rural properties with stately buildings around which agglutinated agricultural and livestock-are a fundamental part of its history.

Hidden coves of the island

After crossing the Serra de Tramontana, going west, you reach two of the most beautiful coves in Mallorca: Sa Calobra and Cala Tuent. Impressive cliffs embrace the crystal clear waters of the beach of Sa Calobra. Cala Tuent, surrounded by splendid pine forests, lies under the highest mountain in Mallorca, the Puig Major, 1,445 meters high.
