Pros and Cons...

  • 3 of 5

Villa Cactus is set in a beautiful area just outside the village of Biniaraix and only about 20 mins walk from Fornalutx, where some good restaurants can be found. It is surrounded by wonderful views of mountains and the valley where Soller lies. The road outside is very narrow (and one-way at weekends) and we had some initial difficulty finding the villa as the entrance is not marked very clearly. As the photos show, the outside of the villa is very green with lovely plants growing all around. It's worth noting that the pool is only 5m x 2.5m so it is much smaller than we expected (although see below).

The building is a converted farmhouse which has been split in to two adjacent villas, each with it's own entrance and pools etc. However, you are living very close to your neighbours so it could be a problem if one side were noisy etc. although this didn't happen to us. In fact, since the adjacent villa was not occupied on some days, we were allowed to use their larger pool on those occasions.

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly and helpful owner, Margarita, who lives on site, and who quickly sorted a few minor problems such as no water on the ground floor and no hot water! The villa is very spacious inside although it is also somewhat dated - for example, the kitchen is small and has very little space for food preparation. One of the dishwasher trays need replacing. Not all the lights work and some of the electrical sockets hang loose on the walls. The downstairs shower room had a permanent damp smell. Several of the doors rub the floor and so are hard to open and close. However, the wi-fi works well throughout the house.

Despite the above niggles, the upper terrace overlooking the garden and distant views is lovely, and full of birdsong. The villa is in a good location (only 10 mins by car from Soller) and the owner is friendly and helpful. So it depends what you are looking for. We certainly enjoyed our week at Villa Cactus but would probably not book to go there again.

Owner's Response: I am glad to know that the situation of the house pleased, surrounded by gardens with fruit trees, and near Fornalutx and Sóller. Yes, the pool is not very large, as there was no space in the garden to do it, but it was on the web that the measures were explained. I am sorry that you found some minor problems on your arrival, we will solve them, thank you. Regards Margalida
