Make a holiday villa in Soller your home away from home

Majorca has lots to offer the visitor: Beaches, farming communities, the great outdoors, stunning architecture and world-class museums are just a few. It’s not often that you get all of these in one town, however. An exception is Sóller on the north-western coast of the island. A holiday villa in Sóller will place you conveniently close to all the best that Majorca has to offer, no matter what your preference. Homeaway present a wide range of holiday accommodation in Sóller, from rambling villas to intimate little cottages; from luxurious places with swimming pools and BBQ facilities to the more basic accommodation that will suit a smaller budget. All holiday villas in Soller are furnished to a high standard and your most serious problem may be that you won’t want to leave again.

Things to do in Sóller

Sóller is nestled in a fertile valley in the Tramuntana Mountains. The earliest inhabitants of the area were prehistoric cave dwellers. The town reportedly got its name from the Moors, who called it Sulliar, Valley of Gold, because it was perfect for growing olives and producing golden olive oil. Over time other crops were grown here too and today the valley is still renowned for its oranges.

-The tramway is a popular attraction in Sóller linking the town to its harbour and beach, Port de Sóller. The scenic route stretches over about 3 miles and the tram still uses some of the cars that date from the route’s inception in 1913. The main station also receives the train from Palma de Majorca and the historic building houses a small art museum where you can see works by big artists: Miró and Picasso.

-Exploring is a lovely way to spend the day, leaving your Soller holiday apartment to simply stroll around town and the nearby coastline, admiring the beautiful architecture. Medieval watchtowers allude to Sóller’s past as a target for attacks by pirates, while the grand Art Nouveau houses in the Avenida de la Gran Via are evidence of glorious riches in days gone by. Two architectural highlights were both designed by Gaudí follower Joan Rubió i Bellver: the Banco de Sóller and the façade of the Sant Bartomeu church.

-The Jardí Botanic is a must if you want to find out more about the plants of the Balearics and other Mediterranean islands including Madeira and the Canary Islands. This botanical garden is a tranquil and cool oasis where you can escape the midday heat without having to return to you air conditioned holiday home in Sóller.

-Admission to the El Museu Balear de Ciències Naturals is included in your entrance fee to the Jardi Botanic and is just one of Sóller’s interesting museums. Another museum that you shouldn’t miss out on is the Can Prunera. Here you can admire the art of such luminaries as Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, René Magritte and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

- If you love the great outdoors and adventure tourism, Sóller won’t disappoint. From walks or cycling trips in the countryside to water sports at the beach or rock climbing and canyoning in the mountains, you’ll find something to keep the adrenalin pumping.

-The Festival of Moors and Christians takes place during the second weekend of May, when Sóller is a hive of activity, raucously celebrating the time in May 1561 when the Moors invaded. They came in by sea and landed at Port de Sóller, so the festivities stretch from Sóller town all the way down to the beach. This is one of the biggest festivals in Majorca and if you’re planning to attend, you should book your Sóller holiday villa well in advance.

The weather in Sóller

Sóller has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. In summer, temperatures can rise to 28 °C while minimum temperatures in winter are about 6 °C. The town is in a winter rainfall region but even during these months, there are usually only about 14 rainy days per month. August and September are best for swimming with nicely warm sea temperatures.

Getting to Sóller

One way to reach Sóller is to sail to Port de Sóller and then take the tramway into town. Since not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to do this, the more commonly used way is to fly to Palma de Majorca first and travel from there. A huge variety of airlines in Europe fly to Palma. You can also travel in by ferry from Barcelona. Once you’re in Palma, Sóller is just over 15 miles away. If you don’t fancy the drive or a taxi or bus ride, a fun way to reach your holiday home in Sóller is to travel in by train. The historic railway winds through breathtakingly beautiful countryside.

Why keep going back to the same place when there are so many places to explore? Easy: this place has all we want. The building itself is great - an upside-down house, with a fantastic lounge on top with views across the entire Soller basin, going straight out the back to the terrace and garden, with pool. You can lay in the pool gazing at the mountains or the stars. Pick lemons and oranges as needed, barbecue fresh fish from the supermarket and then eat them under the terrace roof. Three bedrooms are cool and airy, being down below, with two bathrooms between them. The master bedroom is at lounge level, with its own bathroom. The kitchen, also on the terrace level, looks out over the pool so you can do sociable cooking. Right at the bottom of the house is the garage. Driving the car off or onto the main road from the lane leading to the house requires concentration, but I've got the hang of it now! The town square is about ten minutes walk from the house, so desert in the evenings is usually a stroll to one of the excellent ice cream shops. It's all looked after by Liz, who greets you and comes to see you off, and is always available at the end of the phone. She'll give advice on restaurants, boat trips, and the best G&T in town (Union Bar, also about the closest bar to the house!) She also ensures that the place is really clean on your arrival. Soller is a great little town with good shops and restaurants. It's worth exploring the streets around. A trip to Port Soller on the old-style tram is a must, but perhaps not too often as it's pretty expensive. You can walk there from the house along tracks and very quiet roads in about 45 minutes, and taxis are very reasonable indeed. A wild west train from Soller to Bunyola, or on to Palma is also a must, the stretch to Bunyola being the most exciting. But Soller is probably most desirable for its walking opportunities. Take the bus or a taxi to Cuber Reservoir and walk back to Soller via the Baranca, a spectacular gorge with amazing rock formations - and almost all downhill! Walk to Cala Tuente and catch the ferry back - fabulous. Walk to Deia and bus back - don't miss orange juice and fab cake at Can Mico on the way. Can Domingo is a wonderful base for the whole caboodle. I'm tempted not to submit this review because I want to make sure its always available for our next booking, but share and share alike, I guess!
