With a resident population of 4848 as of January 2008, Son Servera is one of the islands smaller towns and whilst the leading town of the municipality,
it is not the largest in terms of demographics.
With a census count of 5356 people, Son Servera is rather overshadowed by the neighbouring town of Cala Millor.
These statistics fail to detract from the fact that, with a census count of just 11,713 people, the entire municipality of Son Servera accounts for just under 1.5% of the islands entire population.
However, when total land area of this municipality is taken into account, a rather different picture emerges.
With a total land area of 42.6 km2, a population density of 275 people per km follows.
Compared with the national average of 217 people per km2, it would appear that Son Servera is a vibrant municipality with a great deal to offer the tourist.
At a distance of approximately 60 km, the journey is undertaken along a series of major highways and can therefore be completed in good time. Upon leaving the airport, you will need to take the MA-30 before heading east along the MA-15. Much of the journey is spent on this road, and only when you reach Sant Llorenc des Cardassar can you turn off.
You will then need to take the MA-4030 east which will head straight into Son Servera. Although one of the longer journeys on the island, the inclusion of motorways and highways ensure the journey isn’t one to last an eternity!
As with many of the towns and villages on Mallorca, Son Servera is no different in that it has a history dating back to the middle ages that is both varied and unique. The town is believed to have taken its name from the Servera family, the owners of the land in which King James of Aragon founded this early settlement.
Son Servera was first documented in 1354 under the name of Benicanella which was later to become two separate towns: Son Fra Garí and Ca l'Hereu. Eventually, both towns were to be reunified resulting in the present day town of Son Servera.
As part of such a vibrant municipality however, any visit to Son Servera would be incomplete without taking in the high profile attractions that the wider municipality has to offer including Cala Millor and Cala Bona. This area of the island is a popular destination amongst the affluent in Spanish society, drawn to the clean beaches and pleasant surrounding countryside. Of particular note is the internationally known Benicanella restaurant as well as the golf clubs of Pula and Costa de los Pinos.
Son Servera is a town of many qualities. Not only is it located in a municipality containing a wide range of attractions that will appeal to all tastes, but it is an ideal base for a holiday in Mallorca. If the idea of a relaxing break that offers seclusion from the hustle and bustle of daily life appeals to you, yet a desire to see the liveliness that Mallorca has to offer, then a stay here might well be worth your consideration.
Situated close to the vibrant, energetic town of Cala Millor, yet tucked away in the shadow of the Muntanya De Calicant you are sure to have the best of what the area has to offer. The contrast of quiet countryside with warm sandy beaches together with the liveliness of Mallorca set alongside its tranquillity is an experience to satisfy the most demanding of expectations.
