A lovely mountain getaway for our family
We had a very nice time in this house. The photos are accurate and it is a good value for money. Upon arrival, the house was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. They even left us some goodies to start things off including fresh bread and a bottle of wine which was a very nice touch.
Some of our favorite things about the place were the outdoor kitchen (cook all of your meals out there - even move the coffee maker out there in the morning!), and the electric orange juicer (buy lots of oranges!). The restaurant down the road has amazing views and great food so recommend spending one of your meals there and you can walk home afterwards in three minutes.
We did a lot of hiking and there are several trail heads right next to the restaurant. The trail head right after the restaurant (on the right - a small wooden arrow marks the trail) breaks off in two directions about 20 mtrs from the road. You can walk downhill in the direction of Fornalutx in a little less than an hour, and Soller in just over an hour. Right before you come to the restaurant, there is another trail head that leads you to Cala Tuent. I would have loved to have done this hike as I hear you can lunch there and then they have an afternoon pick up boat for hikers back to Port de Soller. We just ran out of time. You can get the map and more info from the tourist office next to the train station in Soller if you are interested in that hike.
This property is at the top of a steep road that zigzags out of Soller for about 20 minutes by car. I knew this area when booking and chose it as we wanted something quiet and remote that had an outdoor kitchen, that was near the trail heads. We did have a moment of panic as we arrived on a Saturday afternoon and there were dozens of moterbikes racing up and down the road extremely loudly. We walked down to the restaurant to ask more about them and they told us that it is common on a Saturday but the rest of the week would be quiet. This proved to be true. The rest of the week was fine. If you do stay here on a Saturday, recommend getting out and about on a Saturday - and staying out into the early evening for dinner even.
The property manager dodged our questions about the noise when we arrived and were worried, and she also didn't know much about using the appliances. We reached out, and the next day the owner Catalina stopped by and walked us through everything - she was lovely and with that we were settled in and enjoying.
Great spot, beautiful neighbourhood
I really enjoyed this suite! It was super cute, modern and very clean. We are a family of 4 and had more than enough room to move around. It was great having the kitchen , we were able to make some of our own meals. Very close to amenities which is nice if you arent familiar with Kelowna like us, there is so much to do within blocks. Right by the lake, parks, stores and many other things. The owner was very kind and helpful. We will definitely be back!
Comfortable hillside cottage
The cottage was as described on the Web. Catalina is to be found daily in the Spar minimarket on Fornalutx town square, she speaks excellent English and was the oracle of information whenever needed. She took us up to the cottage, which we found clean, well maintained and well appointed.
There is a restaurant within 100 metres of the front gates, with a breathtaking view from their terrace. The nearest shopping however is back in Fornalutx, a 4km drive down the hill. There, Catalina’s shop has everything you need, including wines and spirits. Her prices are competitive, so there is no need to go further afield for groceries.
Although in reality only a large village, Fornalutx has a couple of good restaurants and a number of bars and cafes, which cater for all tastes. For the energetic there is a good off-road footpath from the villa down to those delights. If you wish to leave the car (or bike) behind and have an “easy ride”, use shanks’ pony to the excellent “bar next door”, although it was closed on the Monday night when we were there.
We visited in mid May which for us was “bug free” and a beautiful time of year, with the weather “just right”. We were able to eat all our meals al fresco and laze away the day on the terrace well into late evening. There is also a complete “kitchen area” outside including wood fire cooking, charcoal BBQ and gas hob, plus a sink with hot and cold running water – we prepared most of our meals there. To get hot water upstairs it is necessary to coax life from the gas boiler out the back but hot water is always available without any effort in the downstairs bathroom.
The villa is ideally located as a base to explore the Tramuntana Mountains, being right in the middle of the same. The energetic trio of our number took the footpath from the adjacent Mirador Ses Barques for the easy walk down to Port Soller, and arrived there just over an hour later for refreshments on the promenade and a swim off the sandy beach. On another day our more intrepid member started at the same point but trekked northeast following the cliffs overlooking the coast to an unspoilt beach about 2km west of Sa Calobra. The rest of us met him there with the car, in true Hemingway style in a delightfully tumbledown shack bar.
We’d have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation as an ideal if secluded base for hikers, cyclists, bikers and motorists – it is not however for somnolent teenagers, party animals or beach bums.
Fantastic house, a lovely lady owner, a dedicated host Ania
The place to be in the most beautifull and historical region of Mallorca...the mountains of Tramuntana, near the Costa Rocosa...close to the beautifull place Soller and the nice Port of Soller. A paradise for walking or enjoy a beatifull trip with your rental car...much to do, much to see. !
It was our first visit and for sure, we come back next year!!
Schön Finca mit herrlichem Gelände, leider etwas zu nah an der Straße
Tolle Finca mit drei Schlafzimmern im Keller, zwei davon mit Fenster, das dritte nur mit Lichtschacht zur Terrasse. Das Wohnzimmer mit Essbereich schön hell. Die Terrassen, das Areal war sehr schön und auch für unsere Kinder (0,5 bis 2,5). Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und im Kühlschrank waren sogar die Lebensmittel für den ersten Tag bereit gestellt samt Wein. Vielen Dank. Dank elektrischer Heizung war es sehr warm auch wenn nachts nur 3 Grad waren. Leider liegt die Fewo nur 20m von der Straße eingerückt. Am Wochenende und abends bei schönem Wetter (was wir hatten) kann man teilweise sein eigenes Wort nicht verstehen, da die Motorradfahrer die Straße hoch und runter rasen. Die Dorfjugend trifft sich am Mirador und fährt dann Runden. Nachts, abends und bis nachmittags unter der Woche sehr ruhig und angenehm.
Wir haben uns trotzdem sehr wohl gefühlt und haben nichts vermisst. Elektronische Saftpresse, Holzofen, stabil warmes Wasser, Waschmaschine, schnelles Wifi, etc.
Nice house in beautiful surroundings
The location is great with stunning views from the terrace. It is right next to a bar-restaurant with one of the best panoramic views on the island. It is 10 minutes away from the picturesque village of Fornalutx and from Sóller, among olive and orange and lemon trees. A paradise for hikers or people looking for a retreat.
The house is very well looked after and presented. There are many places to sit in the sun and you can even cook outside and have a BBQ.
All in all a pleasant stay in one of the most scenic areas of Mallorca.
One of the most picturesque corners of Mallorca. Sóller is set in a valley full of orange and olive trees, between the highest peaks of the Tramuntana Mountains, and the sea. The valley and its surrounding mountain range, the 'Serra de Tramuntana', acknowledged by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, is a best destination, especially for those who enjoy walking, nature, ecotourism, swimming or simply a peaceful rest away from the hustle of the better-known tourist traps. The town of Sóller has a charming town center. Many buildings in the Art Nouveau style dominate the narrow streets and squares, which has developed a lively scene with bars and pubs. A charming tram runs regularly between Sóller´s town center and the Port of Sóller, meandering trough the the gardens and lemon groves of this picturesque valley. Very attractive is also a journey from Sóller to Palma with a historic train. Sóller is a city with a long history, and has many places which can be discovered by the visitor as well as exquisite restaurants that invite you to taste local food.
Due to its location it is less frequented by tourists, and retains its original character. The surrounding area offers numerous recreational opportunities, where you can enjoy nature and the sea.
Port of Sóller it’s situated in a beautiful natural bay with the fishing boats and yachts, and has impressive mountain landscape of the Tramuntana. Is a charming old coastal town and picturesque location perfect for a vacation on the beach.
Biniaraix, situated in 2 kilometres from Sóller is a small village which preserves its ancient charm, famous for its ravine, where one of the most emblematic excursions on the island can be carried out. Worth mentioning also is the excursion to the architectural group of the property Binibassí, the s'Alzina Fumadora path to the Comuna and many other routes that can be covered on foot or by bicycle. The ascent up the Barranc de Biniaraix is one of the most spectacular excursions on foot that can be carried out along the old stone paths of the Serra de Tramuntana. Hiking in the fertile valley or in the Tramuntana Mountains is an unforgettable experience. Not far away from Biniaraix is situated the picturesque village Fornalutx a delightful excursion option.
