Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathooms (+ Guest Loo) Comfortably Sleeps 12.

Situated in the heart of Soller and only 5 minutes from the town square, this imposing property is framed by the spectacular Tramuntana mountain range. There is a large private pool (can be heated on request), on site parking for 2 cars, spacious living terrace, and beautiful walled garden filled with orange trees, olive trees and fragrant plants. This property offers privacy and tranquillity teamed with luxury living right in the heart of a beautiful traditional Spanish village.

This turn of the century villa was fully renovated in 2014 to provide every modern convenience whilst still retaining its original features and charm. The 10M X 4 M saltwater pool (can be heated) is surrounded by terrace and lawn and equipped with sun loungers, large gas BBQ, 2 outside dining areas and a soft seating area to relax in comfort. At Ca´n Ballester there is no shortage of peaceful corners to relax, read and sunbathe.

The interior of the villa is both luxurious and comfortable, providing everything you could need to enjoy your holiday. Because the villa is one of very few completely detached houses in Soller, sunlight pours in from every window – also allowing you magnificent views of both the mountain and the village. The 3.4metre high ceilings enhance the feeling of space and light! Ca´n Ballester has air conditioning in all the bedrooms and under floor heating on the ground floor and radiators in the bedroom floors for the winter months. The villa has satellite television, Internet WIFI, Blue ray DVD players, books, videos and games – great thought has been put into making sure you will find everything you need to relax and thoroughly enjoy your holiday in Soller at Ca´n Ballester.

The ground floor provides two living areas (adult area including a log burning fireplace), a state of the art open plan kitchen and a dining area for 12 people to comfortably enjoy meals together. Through French doors from the kitchen you walk on to a large covered terrace with both a dining table and seating for 12 plus comfortable sofas and chairs to relax and read a book – or just have an afternoon siesta!

The first floor comprises of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sitting room/TV area.

The top floor comprises of 2 elegant Master suites with soaring ceilings and spectacular views over the village and the mountains, each suite has a large bedroom/ sitting area, spacious en suite bathroom and a shared kitchen.

The roof at Ca´n Ballester has a small terrace with the best 360 views in Soller (not recommended for children)!

In the basement at Ca´n Ballester is a fully equipped gym with rowing machine, exercise mats, free weights to keep you healthy and fit while you relax on your holiday. Also a brand new laundry with washing machine and dryer.

Whilst the property includes parking, a car is not necessary as the villa is in the middle of the picturesque town of Soller with it's shops, restaurants and bars only a 5 minute walk away.

From the town square, guests can also take the antique tram to the Port of Soller and the beach or take the spectacular train journey through the mountains to Palma. This is the perfect property for those seeking easy accessibility to Soller town and Port while offering luxury accommodation.

Puerto Soller with its small sandy beaches, traditional marina and a choice of restaurants and cafes is a 10 minute drive away. The port can also be reached by taking the antique tram which runs from the town square (5 min from the property) to the port. Cala Deia is only a 15 minute drive away and offers a picturesque cove and choice of two restaurants. Deia and the historic town of Valdemossa approximately 20 minutes drive with choice of many restaurants. Palma is 30 minutes drive away. There is also the antique train that runs from Palma to Soller (approximately 6 times per day). The ride lasts approximately 1 hour with breath taking views of the Tramuntana mountain range. Fornalutx is an approximate 30 minute walk away and has been voted Spain's most beautiful village.

Immaculate villa in a central location

  • 5 of 5

This villa delivered the wow factor as soon as we walked through the door.

The decor is fresh and modern and it is immaculate with the lovely scent of white jasmine reed infusers throughout the villa.

We loved the open plan layout of downstairs and with the 2 sitting areas we were never on top of each other despite being a party of 12.

The kitchen is lovely to cook in and has obviously been designed who enjoys cooking with a large island in the centre and 2 large sinks. It is well stocked with pans, utensils, cutlery and crockery.

All the bedrooms and bathrooms are well proportioned and decorated with plenty of bath and beach towels provided.

Tisha was there to welcome us when we arrived and she left a small welcome package of basics - fruit, milk, bread, butter and wine which was very much appreciated and a nice touch.

The location of the villa means you do not need a car. The walk into the main town square is only 5 mins and there is a small grocery shop one street away which provided most of what we needed for the week.

We cannot recommend this villa enough and will definitely be returning next year. Having rented for 15 years this is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in.

Fabulous house in the heart of Soller

  • 5 of 5

Ca'n Ballester is a beautiful house that has been superbly renovated. It is large, very comfortable and has a variety of fantastic living spaces in which to relax, as well a 6 lovely bedrooms (4 with en-suite bathrooms).

The house has everything (and more) you would expect at home - from the beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, thoughtfully stocked with herbs and spices, to a fantastic pool, garden, bbq and terrace spaces.

Tisha and Suzy were great hosts - lots of information before our visit and nothing was too much trouble during our stay. The house is a short walk to the main shopping street and square. Simply fantastic - we hope to be back soon.

We'd like to keep this one a secret!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you arrive outside the magnificent entrance doors you know you've arrived somewhere special. Once inside, you REALLY know you've arrived somewhere special. Wonderful open plan ground floor with two separate living room areas with flat screen TVs and a truly enviable kitchen/dining area. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need and Tisha had left a basket full of goodies to get us started.

The 4 bedrooms on the 1st floor are all a good size with great bathrooms and another sitting area with TV. The two suites on the 2nd floor were exceptional with terrific views to the mountains. The bathrooms were beautifully equipped and the shower gel, shampoo and room diffusers were a lovely addition.

Outside the pool area was great and the dining area and sofas on the terrace were close enough to keep an eye on children. The kids loved the extra table/chairs/sofas down the side of the house which became the "kidzone"! Plenty of sunbeds and masses of pool toys - the pool volley ball was a great hit.

Our family of two grandparents, 6 parents and 4 grandchildren had a brilliant week in Soller. The villa is only a five minute walk from the town centre and small supermarket just two streets away, which gave everyone the choice to do their own thing.

The little train that runs from Soller to Puerto Soller is worth doing but we found it much cheaper to take taxis to and from the port/beach.

All in all everyone loved it. Thank you Tisha for all your help and we look forward to returning and seeing you again.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house was just about perfect for our large group of 4 families. Ca'n Ballester is huge, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable and the air con worked brilliantly.The outside space, pool and terrace was beautiful and well used.

The position, 5 minutes from the centre of Soller was ideal, we even walked to the big supermarket with the shopping trolley provided on one occasion,(cutting quite a dash through the square!)

Tisha really has thought of everything and was both friendly and efficient. She also gave great restaurant recommendations, we particularly enjoyed Ca'n BoQueta in town and Agapanto in the port.

Altogether a wonderful holiday which we did not want to return from.

We hope to come back and I would recommend in a heartbeat.

p.s You really do need to take Tisha's advice and hire the smallest car you can, the streets in Soller are beautiful but very narrow.

Lovely villa in a splendid spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ca'n Ballester. The accommodation was amazing and, as 6 adults and 2 children, we could spread ourselves into the lovely large beautifully decorated rooms. The kitchen was incredibly well resourced with so many options of eating and lounging areas. As with the bedrooms, we all had the space to get to sinks, fridges and cupboards without bumping into each other. The proximity of the pool is an advantage with little ones, as we could carry on with activities and at the same time keep an eye on them. The temperature of the water was just right. We will go back, I'm sure. Tisha is a fastidious host who really takes the trouble to make sure her guests have a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: It is always such a joy to have families like yours to stay. One of the aims during the rennovation of Ca´n Ballester was to make sure that large groups (it sleeps up to 12 people) have plenty of choices for areas to relax in and be peaceful in, but also to have space to be together for cooking and eating! My son is a Chef and he certainly helped me fit out the kitchen - I will tell him you enjoyed it. I would love to have you come and stay again! Thank you - Tisha

Brilliant, stylish, grand town house

  • 5 of 5

This is one very special property and so very special, so brilliant, its hard to find the superlatives to do it justice. Firstly, the photos don't.....its much better than that and its always such a welcome discovery to find that when so many fail to live up to expectation given by owner-taken photos. We came as a family of three generations, seven adults and an infant. It suited us so well in every respect and the sweet woman who runs the property, despite our arrival being 5 hours later than scheduled, was there to welcome us and guide us through everything..... so much so that we were settled in an instant. All the rooms and furnishings are exquisitely done and are faultless in every regard. So well equipped, so stylish and airy yet intimate and private too. Its but a few minutes stroll to a plethora of fun in beautiful Sóller with its bars, restaurants, sights and sounds too. Leaving was the hardest thing but we were unanimous in our wish to return when we can. I just can't recommend it highly enough and I say that as someone who took great pride in being a Homeaway member for years, renting my own house in the south of France. Do it, you'll love it!
