Soller, on Majorca’s northwest coast, is split into two distinct parts; the port, Port de Soller and the main town 3km inland, Puerto Soller, which lies in a wide bowl shaped valley. Peacefully tucked away in the lush countryside of Majorca, both summer and winter holidays in Soller are hugely popular with those looking for a peaceful rest, a walking holiday or beach break. Time does not move quickly in Soller, and a holiday rental apartment in Soller is going to provide a blissfully tranquil holiday set in idyllic surroundings.
Soller or Puerto Soller is the only resort along the rugged northwest coast of Majorca. However, there are two other villages at the bottom of the Puig Major, Fornalutx and Biniaraix. Here, the traditional Majorcan way of life seems to have changed little over the past few hundred years, and are delightful places to indulge in Majorcan culture, even if just on a day trip from a self catering holiday rental in Puerto Soller
A walk around the town from your Soller villa can prove to be a fascinating trip. Within the city limits are two museums, a botanical garden, and architecture dating back to the 13th Century, mixed perfectly with modern buildings. The main square in Soller is beautiful, capped by the Church of Saint Bartholomew. There are a large number of magnificent walks both along the shores of the coast and through the mountains, and there are many great books detailing routes of differing lengths and difficulties.
Soller’s beach is small yet delightful. It is in an almost perfect crescent bay sheltered by two headlands, but there are very few facilities, although there are plans to create a second, artificial, beach with a promenade to match.
Soller is a magnificent resort offering a rare combination of peace, beaches, mountains and unspoilt nature, although if you are looking for a beach resort with bustling nightlife and full beaches, keep looking!
All year round, the lifestyle of the Majorcan locals remains similar, as there are few variations in climate. In the summer, average temperatures remain an extremely pleasant 27°C, and in the depth of winter, temperatures are still above a mild 14°C. This makes a villa in Soller a magnificent spot for a last minute get away for summer and winter holidays.
Soller is around half an hour from Palma Airport (PMI), and the apartments and villas in Soller are well connected by road, train and tram services.
