About Ian and Andrea
We are semi retired and own properties for rent in holiday locations
Ian and Andrea purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Ian and Andrea chose Sóller
We fell in love with this villa as soon as we looked at it , it had everything we personally needed to make a holiday something special
What makes this Villa unique
We are in a truly privileged location on the side of the Tramontane mountain with extended views across Soller village and with the largest mountain as a back drop, in the foreground are fruit tress and orchards. The road to the house is a quiet country lane that has zero traffic due to it being a dead end, the nearest shops are a short distance away as is the center of the village which has a Vintage train link direct to Palma. The beach at Port Soller is a short distance away and is one of the most spectacular sea fronts on the island and is serviced by a vintage tram that runs from the village to the sea front.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Views from property are just amazing
Lovely location, a short walk into town, and views are just breathtaking..
We had a lovely stay in Villa Lime. We were greeted by Andrea who showed us around. As others have said it is up a steep hill, and we didn't hire a car so parking wasn't a problem. After a few days we hired mopeds which made the hill a lot easier. We had a few issues, but they were sorted out promptly. It was extremely relaxing round the pool and there was plently of shade. We ate out most days but also made use of the outdoor BBQ. The walk up the hill was worth it for the stunning views from the villa. Thank you for a lovely stay.
The perfect Mallorcan orange grove retreat
This was my second stay at Villa Lime; a real treasure and Mallorcan paradise!
We loved the amazing view from the sunny terrace and pool, which was an inspiration for Emily’s art work. The oranges, lemons and their blossom are an absolute delight. Shame we couldn’t juice the oranges fast enough to cope with the Easter storms. The highlight was the Hoopoe landing on the railing one evening! It is a perfect location, close to the start of fabulous walks, bus stops and handy for popping into town, yet it’s a haven of peace and tranquility.
The downside is the open plan nature of the villa; fine by day but not great for sleeping arrangements for 3 friends, with one who snores! Vehicular access is difficult, but this didn't bother us as we didn't have a hire car and were using the cheap and efficient local buses. However all this is far outweighed by my comments above.
The villa is well equipped, especially the electric juicer, but we would have liked a washing up bowl and drainer, a baking tray and some bin bags. A practical tip as water shortage is an issue in Mallorca; we used the bucket to collect shower water before the water warmed up and then used this to flush the loo.
Thank you Ian and Andrea, we will be back!

Andrea who we met a few times was the perfect host (Thanks again)
We based our stay on the location for walking, this area is outstanding.
The buses are very cheap allowing travel to Deia / port soller etc for return/ circular walks
local walks are fantastic, the entire area is a joy.
Plenty of local bars and eating out, we ate in every night as the kitchen is well furnished, and the outdoor dining area augmented our stay, plus i enjoyed a bracing dive in the pool after a a good few miles walking in the mountains, (i was November).
We would love to return as there is so much let to be discovered.
The view from Mirador de ses Barques, over port Soller is well worth the walk.
Advise should you go.
Lime villa is at No12, left fork at top of hill.(should you arrive after night fall) take a torch.
buses don't run late from Palma on Sat or Sundays, but the stop is just outside the lane.
A Stereo Phono lead is required to connect to the stereo Aux in. (good collection of cds on site)
If you like Tele stuff do some downloads on a device as there is no TV (as of time of writing Nov 18)
The WiFi signal is very good.
Local food shops are very good as are the supermarkets, if you get chance the Saturday market is worth a visit.
the port Soller tram is nice but expensive for what it is , get it one way walk or bus back same for the train,(but perhaps not the walk back).
Oh yes the hill, as everyone mentions it, yes it a short climb, but you won't get the views without the effort, i managed it with a 20kg suitcase + backpack in the dark, i'm 57 and have had a few too many pints of Guinness if truth be told.
