ABOUT PUIGPUNYENT, MALLORCA, SPAIN
A small traditional town, just 15 minutes west of Palma, Puigpunyent is a mountain village surrounded by untamed countryside – with highlights including La Reserva Puig de Galatzó and the Gran Hotel Son Net. Puigpunyent’s appeal is more based on the things not to do. The pace in town is slow, and worrying, rushing and being busy is definitely not on the agenda. The surrounding mountains mean there are plenty of options for keen cyclists and hikers. The nature park La Reserva Puig de Galatzó boasts 2.5 million meters of unspoilt countryside to explore and enjoy the spectacular scenery on offer.
