Meet the team: Magnus Nystedt

Thinking about moving to Mallorca? In this issue, our sales agent Magnus Nystedt shares with us his own experiences. Magnus moved from Sweden to Mallorca with his wife Maria and their two sons. He was attracted by the quality of life here and the ideal climate. Prior to Mallorca, Magnus worked as an office manager at the SEB office in the Old Town of Stockholm. Now he is a senior sales agent at Mallorcafastigheter working mainly with luxury properties in Palma and the southwest areas of Mallorca.

Q: Where, when and why did you move to Mallorca?
A: I moved with my family to Bonanova in 2013. We wanted to live in a country with warmer climate again after living in Asia earlier. We started looking for work opportunities, schools, good healthcare and climate and the best option was Mallorca, a choice we have never regretted.

Q: What do you like most about the life here?
A: The climate is fantastic, especially in autumn and spring. I get the opportunity to spend more time with my family than before and practice outdoor sports such as golf, paddle and running all year round.

Q: What were the major challenges during the move?
A: The Spanish bureaucracy, many things take more time than you expect.

Q: What is the biggest cultural difference you have experienced between your new country and life back home?
A: The social life is different here. You spend more time with friends and in a different way from Sweden, it’s less pretentious. It’s more important to see each other and hang out, than to make a perfect dinner. You often meet at restaurants or do some kind of activity with your friends, you don’t spend that much time at home. The children become trilingual because they go to an international school, which is a big plus. You buy food in a different way here too; you buy the meat at the butcher, the vegetables in the market and the bread at the bakery, not at home where you usually shop everything you need in one single store. The shopping here takes a little more time, but it is more enjoyable.

Q: What advice would you give to anyone following in your footsteps?
A: You need to have patience in your everyday life, an economic buffer and try to learn Spanish as soon as possible.

Q: Favorite restaurant on the island?
A: With my wife I like to go to Canela, on a crossroad to Jaime III. If we eat Saturday lunch with the children in town, we like to go to Bi Bap at Plaça del Mercat. Cas Xorc in Sóller is also good with fantastic food and beautiful views.

Q: Favorite beach?
A: Playa del Muro

Q: What is the best thing about living in Mallorca´s countryside?
A: Definitely the proximity to nature. You can clearly see all four season, there is always blooming. We have our own large garden with chickens and we can grow our own vegetables. If you want to bike or hike in the mountains, it is very close.

Q: The best hike around the area is…?
A: A good relatively easy walk that suits even with children, is the hike up to Castel Alaró from the restaurant Es Verger where you can park the car. I recommend to have lunch there after the walk, their lamb is delicious.

Q: Which are your two favourite villages here?
A: Esporles and Sóller

Q: The local vineyard  you like best is…?
A: Difficult to say, there are so many good vineyards on the island. One place I do recommend is to buy your meat on Angus Mallorca, they are also opening a vineyard now. It is located just five minutes from where I live so I go there everyday on the way to my children’s school.

Moving to Mallorca

When you make the life changing decision to relocate to Mallorca, there are many important things to consider.  Follow our guide and consider our 10 tips on how to move to Mallorca and you will have no problem living on the island.

Find a home
Whether you’re planning to live permanently or just spend part of your time in Mallorca, you’ll need to find a home. Make a list of the main features you need in a home and contact us. We need to know how many bedrooms you need, which area you would like to live in and what style of house you prefer.  If you don’t know Mallorca well we can organize a viewing for you to identify areas and different types of properties. You’ll find a wide choice of properties for all budgets and tastes on our website:

Get a NIE number
For any sort of transaction in Mallorca you will need a NIE number. It is like the personal number you have in Sweden. A NIE number is necessary to purchase a property, to order internet connection, or to buy anything major in Mallorca. To get a NIE number you’ll need to produce your passport and two passport-sized photographs. The NIE is your Spanish tax office reference, identifying you as a foreign citizen, so the sooner you get it the better. Nathalia Rigo Olausson at Montis Abogados law firm can help you with this process:

Nathalia Rigo Olausson
Tel. +34 971 21 30 96

Legal services
When buying a property or if you open a business on the island, you’ll need a lawyer specializing in Spanish law to act on your behalf. There are some excellent law firms on the island, with multilingual staff to assist you through the purchasing process. For over two decades, law consultancy firm Montis Abogados has been providing solid support for our clients. At Montis Abogados you can contact Nathalia Rigo Olausson who is a Spanish certified lawyer speaking fluent Swedish:

A bank account on the island will be necessary for the debiting of your local amenities such as electricity, water, internet and local taxes. La Caixa on Calle Industria has a Swedish speaking director calle Mia Martensson. Mia has been helping all of our clients with their private and business accounts in Mallorca. If you are thinking of buying a home, then you might want to apply for a mortgage via a local bank. Mia´s contact details are:

A professional financial adviser can do more than ensure optimum tax efficiency: They will help you with mortgages, pensions, trusts, and devise a wealth management strategy to suit your level of income and investments. If you plan to open a business also in Mallorca, the tax adviser will help you with the paperwork surrounding opening a company, employing staff and keeping your books under control.

When moving homes it is important to have a good insurance partner. You will need to insure your property, your health and your business. Talk to an insurance broker to find the best insurance policy to suit your needs, remembering to advise them if the property will be empty for some time during the year. Whatever your insurance needs and concerns, you’ll find a suitable insurance policy at:

Anke Sevenste
Passeig Mallorca, 36 bjs
Tel.+34 971 71 62 60

Healthcare in Mallorca
Mallorca has a wide range of excellent public and private health facilities, including hospitals, clinics, general practitioners, maternity services, dentists, medical specialists, and nursing services. Many will be able to attend to your needs in your own language. Eligibility for care under the Spanish state health system depends on your circumstances, and it’s worth seeking guidance. If you have existing private health cover in your country of origin, it might be transferable, but it can be more cost-effective to find a policy primarily for Spain. For a private health care insurance you can contact

Anke Sevenster
Passeig Mallorca, 36 bjs
Tel.+34 971 71 62 60

Learn the language
An important step when moving to Mallorca is to learn a bit of the language. Entering a new community speaking a little Spanish will not only make your daily life easier, but will also help you to get to know the local traditions and culture better and to create a local network of friends and acquaintances. Although most locals can defend themselves in English, speaking a bit of Spanish is very appreciated. When it comes to language courses, Frida Garby at Casa Viva offers the most useful and fun intensive starter courses. You can contact Frida via her Facebook Casa Viva – Spanish Course or by phone at +34 687 034 525.

Moving with car
If you are bring a vehicle to Mallorca from your home country, it must be officially registered. If you have a home on the island, you can drive the vehicle with its original registration plates for only 30 days, after which you must display Spanish registration plates. You’ll also need to register your original driving licence with the authorities. Road tax is payable each year, and any vehicles more than four years old must undergo an annual vehicle safety check known as an ITV (inspección técnica de vehículos), at an official ITV centre.

Schools in Mallorca
There’s a choice of local and international schools on Mallorca, to suit the curriculum you’d like your child to follow. International schools often have waiting lists, so planning the timing of your move is important.British schools include: The Academy, Baleares International School, Bellver International College, King Richard III, Queen’s College. The French curriculum is offered at the College Français de Palma. The Swedish school in Palma is also very popular. For those seeking a bilingual education with an equal amount of Spanish and English, the well-equipped international school Ágora Portals is the largest private school in Mallorca and part of the Barcelona-based private school group NACE. Escola Global is smaller and also offers an excellent education in two languages.
