Make a holiday cottage in L’Horta your home away from home

L’Horta is a quaint settlement situated in the stunning Soller Valley, in the northwest of Majorca. Owing to its ever so slight removal from the normal tourist trail, the region is perfect for families or couples who would like to really get away from it all; whilst still having all of the great attractions and sights that Majorca has to offer right on the doorstep of their well-appointed L’Horta holiday cottage. The holiday accommodation here is diverse, well facilitated and some feature stunning countryside views and private pools, making holiday cottages in L’Horta the ideal choice for couples, families and party groups.

Things to do in L’Horta

Although L’Horta is something of a quiet rural area, its close proximity to larger centres such as Soller, makes it the ideal holiday destination, regardless of your interests. A rental car is advised however, if you wish to take full advantage of all the wonderful attractions the region has to offer.

-Sightseeing is certainly a great way to spend your time if you decide on a holiday villa in L’Horta, considering that the scenery in the area is absolutely breathtaking. The name L’Horta translates to “Orchard” in Catalan, which is fitting, as one of the first things that will strike you, are the beautiful orange and lemon groves. The orchards are best experienced via the Soller Railway (Tren de Soller), a small vintage train that runs between Soller (approximately 2 kilometres from L’Horta) and Palma de majorca.

-Going to the beach is a definite must on Majorca, and although your L’Horta holiday cottage isn’t located directly at the seashore, the Port de Soller is a mere 7 kilometres away, and may be reached via car or vintage tram. The two beaches at Port de Soller; Repic beach and Es Traves beach are absolutely pristine, and offer unrivalled views of the breathtaking Tramuntana Mountains in addition to crystal clear water and the opportunity to go sailing or diving.

-Hiking is something that has been slowly gaining popularity in Majorca, with a plethora of hiking routes now snaking through the island’s hinterlands. The walking trail between Port de Soller and the Watchtower "Torre Picada" is one of the easier on the island, and begins only 7 kilometres from L’Horta, at the Port de Soller end of the tram tracks. Don’t forget to take your camera however, as this relaxed 2 hour walk up to the Torre Picada will allow you to take some spectacular photographs of the Soller seaside.

-The Sollar Marine Museum located in Port de Soller, is great if you’re at all interested in Majorca’s maritime history. Although it’s quite small, the quantity and quality of the artefacts on exhibit here are astounding and you will definitely return to your holiday apartment in L’Horta with a better appreciation of what the early Majorcans went through in order to trade and communicate with the mainland.

- Golf is something, which is taken very seriously on Majorca, and L’Horta is no exception, with approximately 8 golf courses located within a 30 kilometre radius of most L’Horta holiday homes. If you’re interested in playing or learning golf on some world class golf courses, then L’Horta is certainly the holiday destination for you.

The weather in L’Horta

L’Horta experiences warm dry weather during the summer months and cool damp weather during winter. The best time to visit L’Horta is subsequently, between May and November, as the regions natural beauty really shines during the warmer months. If you’re more interested in a quiet getaway however, you may like to visit outside of the peak tourist season, which not only allows you your pick of holiday homes in L’Horta, but also eliminates queues and hustle and bustle at popular tourist attractions.

Getting to L’Horta

L’Horta is extremely easy to access, as the settlement is situated a mere 33 kilometres from Majorca’s only airport in Palma de majorca. The journey from the airport to your L’Horta holiday cottage may consequently be undertaken via shuttle bus, taxi or rental car, although a rental car will allow you the freedom to explore all the area has to offer right from the get-go.

                      Beautiful house in stunning location

                      5 of 5
                      We love this house. It's as beautiful if not more so than the photos. Spacious, very stylishly decorated with views to die for from every window and terrace . It's an impressive place - private, quiet yet an easy 5 /10 mins drive from shops and restaurants in Soller, the port and a half hour from Palma. We are serial renters of holiday properties and this has one of the best pools we've seen - great size, so clean and well maintained and again lovely views. Kitchen and bathrooms are very well appointed and equipped, excellent laundry room. The master suite is stunning plus 2 large ensuite double bedrooms and a smaller twin make it perfect for 2 families or 3 or 4 couples. The rental process was very straightforward with Barbara who was easily contactable before and during our stay. We only stayed a week, it wasn't long enough. We'd come back here again in a heart beat.

                      Great flat in good location

                      4 of 5
                      Have stayed in this building before and really like it because of it's location. Easy access to hills, to Soller town and the port. We walked everywhere, but there's a bus stop nearby if necessary. All communication with mallorcan dream homes, who manage the property rental, was easy. The flat itself is clean and comfortable. Yets, it does overlook the main road so can be a bit noisy, but that never impacted on our sleep or enjoyment of the property. Great price for Soller too.

                      Perfect little villa in every way

                      5 of 5
                      Totally taken away on arrival by first impressions as we walked up the drive with the mass of dark pink bourgainvilla over the loggia. Inside was just as delightful with a true Mallorcan feel and all immaculately kept. The pool was brilliant and our two children (6 and 8) spent many a happy hour jumping in and out including that last jump in after our last meal out fully clothed!!! Plenty of towels. Took a couple of days to find the underwater pool lights but so pretty when switched on. Great walks into Soller and Port de Soller and we also did some other walks to Binairaix and Fornalutx. Lovely location for walking from the door. Great restaurants in both Soller and Port de Soller and not too touristy like some other places. Would highly recommend to anyone especially with a young family as they can make a noise without worrying about neighbours who are mainly a donkey and an old cow. It would have been nice to have been supplied with some dish washing liquid and a sponge as we arrived quite late after a long day travelling and had food but nothing to wash up with. And you must try the local shrimps on the BBQ - absolutely yummy. PS we can't wait to go back but need to save up for the airfares first which was the most expensive part of the holiday.
