Overview

About the property

Lovely outdoors, charming idyllic location near Soller and sea

In a peaceful area between Soller and Fornalutx you will find this wonderful comfortable cottage with a citrus plantation all around. The house offers peace and privacy, no neighbors. The house has a double bedroom with a comfortable king size bed and bathroom on suite. There is a fully equipped kitchen, toilette with shower and nice living room with a dining area, sofa bed and fireplace. Outside there is a lovely garden with flowers, a charming spacious terrace with stunning views of the mountains and even a covered terrace with dining furniture.

The house has private parking space and a large natural pond (12 meters X 7 meters wide and 3 meters deep). We use it to water the orange and lemon trees in the finca. We do not use chemicals in the water, which is changed weekly, and we have some color Koi fishes.

Feel free to pick up fruits from the trees in the finca and explore the land, including a little private pine forest and the citrus orchard.

What makes this house unique

A truly authentic and wonderful rural Mallorca holiday!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I visited the peaceful cottage in Soller with three friends and we all loved it. The perfect place to relax and sunbathe, we ended up spending more time at the cottage being lazy than out exploring. The view is as incredible as described and we enjoyed cooking and sitting on the terrace a lot, feeling very at home. I'd advise having a car with the cottage up some windy roads but there are some great walks to take, in particular to beautiful Fornalutx and Soller town is within walking distance. We also ended up getting a taxi to Deia and even Palma one night and it was quite reasonable. Can't wait to go back next year!

Owner's Response: Dear Charlotte, Thanks for your email. We are sorry you had a problem with your car. We always recommend to get a good insurance when you hire a car, having in mind that most of the streets and roads in Soller area are very tight. We agree that the cottage is quiet and peaceful, we think it deserves more than 2 stars, but thanks anyway.

The perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is everything it says in the details and more! If anything the beauty is understated - the location is perfect and the views stunning!

The cottage is spotlessly clean and there is everything you will need for your stay - in fact we could have happily spent the whole week there - although the walks to Fornalutx and Soller cannot be missed.

And if something goes wrong? - the owners could not be more helpful. We 'enjoyed' a thunderstorm on the Sunday afternoon and the electrics failed. Within 15 mins help arrived, an electrician was summoned and all power restored within an hour (at 18.30 on a Sunday afternoon we were so imoressed!)

Just one word of advice regarding access to the property - the road is narrow and the driveway a little steep so a smaller car is advisable.

This was our second stay in the cottage - it will not be our last.

Perfect vacation, spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at this wonderful Villa Can Bac. We were expecting a lot after reading the description and booking the villa, but this property really exceeded our expectations! The villa is beautiful both inside and out, and the view is spectacular! It is difficult to get a sense of how wonderful it is just from the website. The steep and twisting one lane road takes you high above the valley floor to a very peaceful location, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The house is very comfortable, with a well appointed kitchen in which we cooked our own dinners most of the days we were here. The fireplace was a nice feature, but we did not need it as the weather was hot during our stay. Our group of friends has toured Mallorca before, including Soller, so we spent most of our time this year at the villa and other properties in the area, just relaxing and cooking and enjoying good wine. Matias was great to work with, and he made sure we had all the information we needed before our arrival, and Biel made sure everything went smoothly during our stay. We definitely recommend Can Bac and we hope we are fortunate enough to visit here again in the future.

Wonderful views yet almost total seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this wonderfully located finca. Firstly, we were really impressed with making the booking, having questions answered, meeting a representative and being welcomed at the house. We booked it largely because of it's position, between Soller and Fornalutz but also the views. Well, we were not disappointed - the view is absolutely stunning - a full panorama of Soller's old town and the striking Tremulata Mountains, stunning. This view knocked me sideways each time I stepped outside, we had all our meals out there and made use of the BBQ (beware - wasps seem to like hiding in there!) as much as we could.

The house itself is fairy basic, quite colourful and designed (obviously) to retain the cool air. Kitchen is well equipped and we are one chef and a very keen cook so there was nothing we missed. Only one bedroom but a bathroom and a shower room so plenty of space to spread out, it's perfect for a couple. TV all German/Austrian so no good for us but it wasn't a deal breaker.

A great huge terrace taking in the view with a few sun beds and several chairs and tables. There is a natural pond and after being a bit unsure about the deep green water - we took the plunge on a particularly hot day and that was it - we were in there every day, it was really refreshing!

We really enjoyed walking to the small village of Fornalutz via the old rocky path through endless groves and woods. It runs from directly below the property which is handy and takes about 20 minutes. It's not a flat path but that's half the fun - you're made to work for your cold beer or Paella! It's a very picturesque way to arrive in the pretty village.

Plenty of grocers/deli's/butchers/ bakeries and a Municipal Market in Soller town and a well stocked general store in F'lutz main square so we had a wide choice of places to buy supplies. Can't recommend the Mallorcan Wine and cheese enough - most of what we ate was locally produced and it was all really impressive.

Only thing I would mention but I believe it's in the property details - I wouldn't recommend for small children or very elderly or if you are not very good at driving very sharp and narrow bends - the drive up to the house is extremely narrow! So I wouldn't recommend hiring a fancy or large car!!

We picked abundant fruit from the trees which was incredibly idyllic, lemons, oranges, plums - all delicious.

We will most certainly be coming back as soon as we can!!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of two adults and two children (11 and 8) and we really enjoyed our stay. It is every bit as beautiful, peaceful and private as the pictures, the property is very well maintained and fitted out and you can explore the surrounding terraces. The views and the walks are so tempting that we set out on the path to Fornalutx (easy walk through citrus groves) and also to Biniarix and on the Barranc trail. We also managed a coastal walk from the port and swims in Deia and Port de Soller as well as the property pool. It was always wonderful to get back to the property and see the wildlife, birds, lizards and the sheep and the log fire was welcome and cosy on a cooler night.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were received with a fruit bag and a bottle of local white wine from the owner. The rental manager met us in Soller and came with us to the house, showing us everything and explaining us about the finca, even how they collect the olives or the lemons. Unfortunately we didn't have oranges (only in the winter) but Biel showed us the lemons, apples and some more fruit trees.

Inside, all in a fantastic condition and as described. Spotless clean, we really enjoyed the living room, we wanted to use the fireplace but was still not cold enough at the beginning of October. The kitchen is very well equipped, and we loved the attention to the detail in the house, very nicely decorated and furnished. We had a small problem with the TV (we couldn't get international channels, only the spanish tv) but Biel and Marga (the owner) came very quickly to show us how to do it. We only swam one day in the pond, because the water was cold, but I believe in a sunny day has to be a perfect choice after a hiking day. By the way, the hiking in the surrounding areas is amazing. We went to Barranc and the views are simply stunning. Also, we walked from Soller to Sa Calobra (another fantastic but long excursion) or to Deia (the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen).

But the best thing of this house is not the house itself or the surroundings, it's the view. Wake up every morning and take your coffee with the famous local "ensaimada" on the sunny terrace looking at the valley has no price!

Thank you so much for letting us to stay in your marvelous house!
