Selva is a small town in a very pretty part of rural Mallorca, in amongst the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana. This is a wonderful spot for walkers, or those looking for a peaceful base from which to explore the local towns. Guests will find that some of the best places to stay in Selva are also some of the best value fincas and hotels in the island's north west region.
The large holiday companies have skipped over Selva, so it's difficult to arrange transfers, and far better if you hire a car. That way you can drive out to the other local villages, and some amazing lookouts. This also means that Selva gives a wonderful sense of pre-tourism Mallorca, from its charmingly un-signposted local buildings to its regular fiestas.
Having said all that, the best places to stay in Selva will get very busy during the summer months. Our pick of the properties are all small, individual hotels, so get organised and book well ahead.
