Make a Port de Sóller holiday apartment your home away from home

A Port de Sóller holiday apartment is the place to stay if you want a relaxing break close to the beach but with enough other things to do than laze in the sun. If you prefer a larger rental property, you’ll find that holiday accommodation in Port de Sóller also includes houses, cottages and even chateaux.

Things to do in Port de Sóller

Port de Sóller is a harbour town. Originally it was from here that the oranges grown in the Sóller area were shipped. Today, the harbour caters mainly for yachts.

-Port de Sóller’s two beaches are the only sandy ones on majorca’s west coast. Even though they’re not very wide, both these beaches offer safe swimming in the calm, shallow waters. A beachfront promenade is lined with shops and restaurants if you need a little respite from the midday sun and don’t want to return to your Port de Sóller holiday home just yet.

-Outdoors activities are terrific in the area around town and include hiking, cycling and mountain-biking. Port de Sollér holiday apartments are the perfect base from which to explore the many paths that lead along the bay or up into the hills and mountains overlooking the village. You can go on a walking tour or rent a bicycle if you don’t want to go it alone. If you’re feeling more adventurous, canyoning in the mountains is a relatively new but increasingly popular activity. You can also head for the water and explore the coastline by kayak or yacht.

-Port de Sóller tramway links to the larger inland town of Sóller. While this is a practical form of public transport, the tram has also become one of the area’s major tourist attractions. In operation since 1913, this was majorca’s first electrical tramway and some of the original cars are still in use. The route stretches along the bay at Port de Sóller and through gorgeous countryside all the way to Sóller, about 3 miles away. At the station building in Sóller, don’t miss the art museum with works by Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.

-Exploring Soller is a must do when staying in holiday accommodation in Port de Sóller. This historic town nestled among the mountains has some fascinating architecture. Aside from the buildings dating from between the 16th and 18th centuries, there is the church of Sant Bartomeu, which has an original building dating from the 13th century, a baroque interior structure from the 17th century and a façade from 1904. The architect of this impressive façade was Joan Rubió i Bellver, who also designed the Banco de Sóller and was a disciple of Antoni Gaudí. Sóller also has some fascinating museums, like the Natural Science Museum and the Can Prunera, and art gallery with a permanent collection of works by not only Picasso and Miró but also by Magritte, Matisse, Basquiat and other artists. The town’s botanical gardens are renowned too.

-The Festival of Moors and Christians takes place during the second weekend of May so if you’re planning on renting a holiday apartment in Port de Sóller during this time it is best to book early. One of the biggest festivals in majorca, it commemorates a 16th-century Moorish invasion of the area and in Port de Sóller itself, the sea battle is noisily re-enacted with plenty of explosions, gunshots and a good dose of fun. The festival lasts for three days.

The weather in Port de Sóller

Like the rest of majorca, Port de Sóller has a sunny, warm and dry Mediterranean climate. In summer, temperatures reach the upper twenties to lower thirties but there is often a cooling breeze. Winter sees rain and colder weather with the mercury dropping to about 4 or 5 °C. Due to the mountainous terrain around town, you may also experience some windy days.

Getting to Port de Sóller

There are different ways of getting to Port de Sóller. One is by yacht but if, like the majority of visitors, you have to get here another way, the best is to travel in via Sóller. Palma de majorca Airport receives flights from many European cities and you can also get in by ferry from Barcelone or other destinations along the Spanish coast. From Palma, simply rent a car and drive to Sóller and Port de Sóller. Alternatively, take a bus or train to Sóller and then travel by tram or taxi to Port de Sóller.

Wonderful stay

4 of 5
The apartment is a little bit dated but is clean and comfortable and is in a fantastic location. Close to all amenities and some great restaurants and has fantastic views of the port from the very large balcony which is well equipped with table and chairs and comfortable loungers. No air con in apartment but this wasn't a problem as there is the occasional breeze and two very effective large fans if needed. Kitchen although small is equipped with all that you would need. Apartment also located close enough to take tram to Soller and to catch buses to Deia and surrounding areas. Smooth check in with Cheryl who was very helpful and informative. All in all had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend.

gorgeous views and wonderful hosts

5 of 5
We stayed in September, as a couple, but the property was big enough for six people. Pep and Catherine, the owners, gave us lots of help and advice, both during our stay and beforehand via email. They were always there to help, if needed, but did not intrude upon our privacy. The property is very unique and has a wonderful charm about it. You are equipped with everything you need for your stay, even beach towels. There are views of both the beach and the mountains from the terrace and the house is situated in a position which is private, but still near to the beach and several restaurants. Port de Soller is mainly based around the seafront promenade. This is lovely with a few bars and many restaurants to choose from. Not many shops though, if that is what you are looking for, but enough for our needs. The beach is fairly long, but quite narrow and stays shallow for quite a way out to sea, so good if you have children. We enjoyed seeing a duck parade down the beach with two young ducklings in tow. There are also many small fish to see in the clear water. If you fancy a trip inland, there is a quaint tram service to Soller which runs half hourly, all day and you can view the orange groves along the way. In summary, a great place to stay in a nice resort, we enjoyed it immensely.
