The house was built in 1914 in art nouveau style by Don Onofre Bauza Castañer with profits obtained from the trade of oranges with France. The house has been in the Rullan Bauza family ever since. Today the is is owned by the 4th generation of the family. The house name is «Sa Bleda» which is the Mallorquin name for the vegetable “chard”. It is on the list of the «most emblematic buildings» in Soller, due to its unique architecture.
In 2014-2015 the house has been through a modernisation. The aim has been to restore the house respectfully, while providing modern comforts such as air-conditioning, swimming pool and wifi.
Even though the house has a very central location in the beautiful village of Sóller, a relaxed and private atmosphere can be enjoyed in the large garden behind the house. Here you will find, among orange trees, the «salt water» swimming pool and a outdoors dining and barbecue area.
The house consists of three main floors and and a cosy basement. The main social spaces of the house are found on the ground floor. Eat breakfast in the traditional kitchen, or have a more formal meal in the adjacent dining room. Do some work in the office, or put your feet up in the library. Two large halls traverses the house and link the narrow village street to the secluded garden. The six bedrooms are located on the 2nd and 3rd floor. At the top floor, where the views are the most spectacular, is where the suite is located. Here you can enjoy your morning coffee with the mountains of the Soller valley as an impressive backdrop.
