The position is perfect: from the garden the views of the mountains (Sierra Tramuntana) are gorgeous, especially at sunset. The town is a six-minute walk downhill for a good bakery, wet fish shop and the Sóller Cooperative – one of the oldest in Spain and with excellent supplies. The main square is a bit touristy but if you walk down the side streets you’ll find lovely bars and tapas places that are quieter and more authentic.
There’s plenty of space indoors with two living rooms, one with a wood-burning stove and both with big windows overlooking the garden so even in bad weather you’ll feel part of the lush outdoors; mostly you’ll be based on the terrace with its fabulous views or lazing around the pool which is big enough for proper swimming.
The kitchen opens onto the terrace and you also get a handy extra fridge. Lovely to stock up with local food and eat watching the sun sink below the rocky horizon. It’s peaceful here.
