Most municipal pueblos in Mallorca contain within their boundaries a number of smaller poblados or llogarets, hamlets if you want to call them that. In Felanitx, for instance, you’ll find Es Carritxó, Son Valls, Son Calderó, S’Horta, to name but a few. In neighbouring Santanyí, there is Llombards, S’Alqueria Blanca, Cala Figuera, Portopetro amongst others, and the tiny hamlet of La Costa de Son Vidal. This smallest of small places, an erstwhile farming community, consists of no more than perhaps twelve dwellings with possibly 30 people residing in them, all told.
I actually think that perhaps less than 10 people live there all year round, if that. The rest is made up of secondary holiday homes in the possession of Northern European estrangers. If you ever made your way to La Costa, also known as Can Cozta, you would find a charming, tiny church dating back to 1881, a much older aljub and pozo, possibly dating back to the Moorish period, and as much peace and tranquility as you would ever find on this idyllic island.
