Located on the edge of Sóller, nestled at the foot of the Tramuntana mountains, within walking distance to Sóller and just a 5 minute drive to Port Sóller’s beach and marina, this traditional mallorquin home is a perfect base from which to explore ‘The Valley of Oranges’ whether on foot, by bicycle or by car. Surrounded by exceptional beauty and an escape from the hustle and bustle of the better-known tourist traps, the valley is a favourite destination for people who enjoy walking, nature and ecotourism.
The bustling, authentic town of Sóller is a 20 minute walk away with a lively plaza, cafes and bars and a traditional Saturday market. From here, a ‘must do’ day trip in the region is to ditch the car and take the scenic railway to Palma via vintage train.
From the property the horseshoe bay of Port Sóller is 2km by road or more scenically by antique tram. Port Sóller offers an wide array of restaurants, cafes and bars both traditional and contemporary.
I am Mallorcan and own 6 rental properties in the Soller valley.
Ses Llimoneres is just on the edge of Soller in a beautifully sunny and tranquil location with easy access to both Soller and the Port of Soller. The situation is ideal for a small family or a couple. The pool area is very private and the main gates can be closed making it safe for little ones.
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.
The bustling, authentic town of Sóller is a 20 minute walk away with a lively plaza dominated by the impressive modernist church of San Bartomeu and surrounded by cafés and bars. Along Sóller’s main street is an eclectic selection of boutiques, cafés, art galleries, bakeries, cycle hire, jewellers and in the plaza on Saturdays a traditional market offering local produce and arts and crafts. From here, a ‘must do’ day trip in the region is to ditch the car and take the scenic railway to Palma via vintage train.
From Sóller the horseshoe bay and fishing port of Port Sóller is 3km by road or more scenically by antique tram. Port Sóller boasts the only sand beach on the north west coast and offers an wide array of restaurants, cafes and bars both traditional and contemporary. Day ferries depart regularly from here to visit the dramatic scenery of ‘Sa Calobra’ and ‘Torrent de Pareis’ and you can watch the fishing boats come in each day at 5pm with their catch.
Around Sóller the landscape in spring is covered with oranges, lemons and olives. Beautiful local villages such as Biniaraix and Fornalutx are the best places from which to appreciate this landscape. Fornalutx, a little higher up is particularly pleasant for a lunch break, evening meal or just a coffee in the plaza. Slightly further afield and only 20 minutes by car is beautiful Deià with it’s well known cala (cove) and 10 minutes further south on this coast road, Valldemossa.
In any season, this area of Mallorca is a gem to behold and with close to 15,000 inhabitants, it is not one of the many tourist towns that entirely shuts down in winter.
