Empuries’s house is located in a quiet neighbourhood of Sóller and stands at the foot of the breathtaking hiking trails of the Tramuntana mountain range. Our neighbourhood exudes a family feeling, where the children play while the elderly chit-chat by the old fountain. Empuries house is over 300 years old and has been completely renovated. Our first aim in the restoration was to preserve all the traditional elements of the building.

This is the second time that we have stayed in Soller, we stayed in Ema's other house the last time we visited. Both apartments/houses are clean, comfortable, very well equipped and are spacious with spectacular views of the mountains.
We relied on public transport which is efficient,, the walk into the centre of Soller take about 10 minutes and to the bus station about 15 minutes. There are a couple of local bars, one of which, Bar Mollino serves good freshly cooked food at affordable prices. The local agri co- op is good for fresh produce and is only 5 minutes walk away.
It is easy to access local walks straight from the apartment.
Ema is really helpful and always replies quickly to any queries.
I would not hesitate to recommend both apartments to stay, Soller is a special place and we hope to return again soon, and will definitely book this accommodation again.
This was the second time we have stayed at Ama's apartment. It is well situated on the quiet outskirts of Soller and is very well equipped with everything one would need for a stress free holiday. There are extensive panoramic views from the balcony and parking is available very nearby.
There is a co-operative 5 minutes walk where you can get fresh produce, orange juice and wine from the cask, and a super little alimantari 5 minutes into town for fresh produce, bread and cheeses!
The walk into Soller takes just 8-10 minutes past small interesting shops to the main square, where there is always a buzz. From here you can take a tram to the port and the beaches, or the train through the mountains to Palma.
Soller has plenty of good restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisines at reasonable prices.
Overall a very enjoyable stay and a great base from which to explore this side of the island
Lovely old character house in quiet residential area of Soller. Well equipped, clean and very comfortable, nice and simply decorated with great views to the mountains. We stayed for 2 weeks and had a fantastic time. Easy to walk into town for shopping during the day, and in the evening for dinner - took about 10 to 15 mins. We hired a car to see more of the island, but transport from Soller ( tram / train ) to other towns very good.
Excellent location - would definitely return...
Our choice of holiday on Mallorca was based on the requirements to be located where we would have easy access to the mountains for walking and be able to reach the coast with ease without the need of a car. The location would also need to be within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
Empuries House fullfilled these requirements. The accommodation gave us everything that we required to make the time there both comfortable and relaxing. On arrival we were met by the owner who gave us a tour of the house, which was a cool retreat from the heat outside, and also provided some useful information on the local area. The house is as described in the website and was clean and fresh.
For restaurants and shopping, Soller and the surrounding area provides a great choice, giving us the opportunity to enjoy the local cuisine.
the house had everything you needed,and i call it a house not an apartment. it was huge. tastfully furnished and decorated with magnificent views of the mountians from the terrace.
Ema was a courtious host and we saw her often in the town and had a chat.
the town of Soller and the surrounded area is one of the most beutiful places I have stayed in.
there are plenty of bars and resteraunts in the town espially round the square.
But a special mention to Jordi, a young man who run the Maholo bar on the way into town who cooked great food. and was great company.
You can walk or ride a tram down to Port Soller, for more placesto eat and also the beaches. And dont forget the walking in the mountains spectacular.
All in all a great place to stay in a wonderful area. Mixing the old with the new, Ema has cetainly got it right.
I would definitley recomend it to anyone seeking a relaxing holiday in a beautiful Majorcan house in a wonderful town
Von dieser schönen Wohnung aus konnten wir das Wanderparadies täglich neu genießen. Die Wohnung liegt sehr ruhig am Stadtrand (10 Minuten Fußweg zum Zentrum resp. zum Busbahnhof Plaza America). Für das Internet erhielten wir von der Vermieterin kostenlos einen Surfstick. Besonders Küche, Bad und Terrasse sind super. Gelungene Renovierung eines Altbaus in einer typischen alten Wohnstrasse. Wir empfehlen die Wohnung gern weiter.

Soller has a lot to offer thanks to its privileged location in the range of Tramuntana. It boasts some serious trekking options, the highest peak being Puig Major at 4740 feet. You can also do easy walks in the valley alongside orange and lemon tree fields, as well as seaside walks.
Another enjoyable location is the beach at Soller’s port which offers a variety of water sports. There are other options like horse-riding, golf, etc. Two great hobbies you can develop on your holiday in Soller are exploring picturesque villages in the area and finding remote “calas” to enjoy your day by the seaside. When the evening comes it’s a must to stroll along the beautiful narrow streets of Soller and watch the local life passing by from the terraces of its many cafes and restaurants.
