This delightful stone cottage is hidden in a tranquil orchard at the end of the garden of the main house. Glass doors from both bedroom and living room open out onto a patio terrace with breath taking views up to the mountains and is equip with marble table and chairs, loungers and BBQ for alfresco living. The wooden beamed ceiling is shaped like that of a small chapel, two ceiling lights introduce floods of light down onto the warm clay floor tiles. The well equip fitted kitchen is open plan with all new appliances. There is a comfortable double sofa bed, sky satellite, a large flat screen TV, Wifi connection and a CD and DVD player. The 9 meter swimming pool is decked with Egyptian stone on which are extra loungers and a hot and cold water outside shower. A car is not essential. We recommend a smart car or Fiat panda as the road up and entrance gate are narrow. There is underfloor central heating, air conditioners, double glazing on windows and dimmers on lovely haigan ceiling lights
Staying in the orchard cottage is like staying in a five star hotel,freely enjoying all the same facilities, yet with the addition of being in your own self contained residence with space and intimacy surrounded by a garden full of fruit trees and looking up to breath taking views of the mountains over the village hamlet of Biniaraix, while sipping a cocktail on your own terrace or lounging by the pool. The salt water pool is shared with the owner at a discrete distance. The garden is quite magical at night ,full of subtle lights along the stone walls and in hidden corners of the garden. that surround the main house, orchard cottage and garden.
As the lovely town center of Soller is so close, you can walk out to dine in one of the many good restaurants that surround the plaza or that proliferate in the back streets of Soller. Or if you don't feel like driving, the tram is available from train station a short distance away to take you to the Port of Soller where you can dine by the water's edge. Through out the summer season the trams run till quite late at night. There is also a taxi rank both at the Station in Soller and down at the Port. As the walk from the house to the Port of Soller takes you on paths through picturesque countryside, it's an option to walk down to the Port and see the sunset and dine and return home in tram or taxi.
For the film lover there is a big range of DVD available in English.
The main square of Soller is always lively for fresh orange juice and coffee and croissants for breakfast through to evening cocktails and dinner at night.
Most of the local shops selling locally made shoes, wines, cheeses, olives, flavored salt, special ice cream and crafts, along with small art galleries remain open in the the Calle de La Luna walking street and elsewhere all day.
Then there is always the option of shopping at the market and cooking fish or meat on the BBQ outdoors and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the orchard garden as the long spring and summer days blend into night.
There is a street market in the Square of Soller till 3.pm every Saturday and throughout the spring and summer the town hall organize fold dancing , films and music recitals in the square.
Ein wunderbares Cottage in der Nähe des Stadtzentrums. Sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet. Judy ist sehr hilfsbereit und erfüllt alle Wünsche. Am Pool kann man wunderbar relaxen. Ortszentrum und Restaurants in Gehweite. Von Sóller kann man wunderbare Ausflüge machen und wandern. Der Hafen ist auch in ein paar Minuten mit dem Auto oder der Tram (teuer) zu erreichen. Das Haus ist wunderbar ruhig und doch zentral gelegen. Den Ratschlag, einen möglichst kleinen Wagen zu mieten (Panda) sollte man jedoch wegen der engen Straße und Einfahrt beherzigen. Wir (Ehepaar) haben einen tollen Urlaub auf Mallorca verbracht und können die Unterkunft wirklich empfehlen.
Myself and my boyfriend were looking for a very relaxing holiday which involved a bit of sun and lots of reading and eating. We didn't have a particular destination in mind and had never even heard of Soller before. What we got at the Orchard House and in Soller far exceeded our expectations. It really was the perfect holiday. The house had everything we could possibly need, plus nice bonuses like a juicer (so we could make our own orange juice), games, DVDs, Sky Television, a BBQ, plus a bottle of Cava in the fridge on arrival. It was really comfortable and functional and ideal for two people. The pool was gorgeous, and the mountain-y backdrop stunning, plus I loved the lemon trees in the garden which were really useful for drinks and salad dressing! The town of Soller itself is brilliant - lots of lovely restaurants on the square, some good shops, plus a great market every Saturday. There's a lovely atmosphere in the evenings - buzzy but not loud or rowdy. We're very into our food so we loved all the different types of cured meat and cheese and vegetables and almonds available at the local foodshops. It's also a great area for walking and has lots of trails into the mountains - this is best done early or late in day. And the Port of Soller is just a lovely tram ride away. There's lots of restaurant and bars down there (great tapas and cocktails) and a beach. All in all, a really fab week away. We'll definitely be coming back. Anne-Louise, Dublin
Wunderhübsches kleines Steinhäuschen, perfekt gelegen am Ortsrand in ruhiger Lage (Sackgasse) mit schönem Swimming-Pool, von der Terrasse tolle Aussicht auf Garten mit Zitronenbäumchen und Blick auf die umliegenden Berge, bestens geeignet für Paare als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Berge sowie Sightseeing, z.B. Fahrt mit dem "Roten Blitz" nach Palma. Zum hübschen Hauptplatz von Soller mit etlichen Restaurants nur wenige Gehminuten.
Das Cottage ist ansprechend möbliert und mit modernen Elektrogeräten ausgestattet.
Die Eigentümerin Judy ist angenehm zurückhaltend, steht aber jederzeit bei Fragen freundlich zur Verfügung.
Wir verbrachten 2 fantastische Wochen in dem kleinen Cottage und können es zu 100 % weiterempfehlen.
Herzlichen Dank an unsere sympatische Gastgeberin Judy!
Das Orchard Cottage ist ein absoluter Traum. Da es erst im Frühjahr 2012 gebaut wurde, ist es mit allen modernen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestattet und vom guten Geschmack und künstlerischen Können der Eigentümerin inspiriert.
Haus und Garten sind sehr gepflegt und die Vermieterin Judy, die im Haupthaus wohnt, kümmert sich sehr liebevoll um alles. Sie hat auch eine Menge nützliche Tips für Ausflüge auf der Insel und gute Restaurants in der Nähe.
Die Lage des Hauses ist ideal: Am Ortsrand in einer winzigen Sackgasse gelegen ist es absolut ruhig, aber man ist zu Fuß in wenigen Minuten am belebten Marktplatz des schönen Städtchens Sollér.
Die Aussicht auf die umgebenden Berge ist wirklich spektakulär, und ein Bad im Pool oder das Frühstück auf der Terrasse mit dieser wunderschönen Aussicht ist traumhaft.
Insgesamt also ein perfektes Urlaubsziel für Gäste, die eine ruhige, schöne Unterkunft mit netter Atmosphäre in der Serra de Tramuntana suchen, um Wanderungen in der näheren Umgebung zu unternehmen oder die Insel zu erkunden.
