Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016

Situated in the heart of Soller and only 5 minutes from the town square, this imposing property is framed by the spectacular Tramuntana mountain range. There is a large private pool, on site parking for 2 cars, spacious living terrace, and beautiful walled garden filled with orange trees, olive trees and fragrant plants. This property offers privacy and tranquillity teamed with luxury living right in the heart of a beautiful traditional Spanish village.

This turn of the century villa was fully renovated in 2014 to provide every modern convenience whilst still retaining its original features and charm. The 10M X 4 M saltwater pool (can be heated) is surrounded by terrace and lawn and equipped with sun loungers, large gas BBQ, 2 outside dining areas and a soft seating area to relax in comfort. At Ca´n Ballester there is no shortage of peaceful corners to relax, read and sunbathe.

The interior of the villa is both luxurious and comfortable, providing everything you could need to enjoy your holiday. Because the villa is one of very few completely detached houses in Soller, sunlight pours in from every window – also allowing you magnificent views of both the mountain and the village. The 3.4metre high ceilings enhance the feeling of space and light! Ca´n Ballester has air conditioning in all the bedrooms and under floor heating on the ground floor and radiators in the bedroom floors for the winter months. The villa has satellite television, Internet WIFI, Blue ray DVD players, books, videos and games – great thought has been put into making sure you will find everything you need to relax and thoroughly enjoy your holiday in Soller at Ca´n Ballester.

The ground floor provides two living areas (adult area including a log burning fireplace), a state of the art open plan kitchen and a dining area for 12 people to comfortably enjoy meals together. Through French doors from the kitchen you walk on to a large covered terrace with both a dining table and seating for 12 plus comfortable sofas and chairs to relax and read a book – or just have an afternoon siesta!

The first floor comprises of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sitting room/TV area.

The top floor comprises of 2 elegant Master suites with soaring ceilings and spectacular views over the village and the mountains, each suite has a large bedroom/ sitting area, spacious en suite bathroom and a shared kitchen.

The roof at Ca´n Ballester has a small terrace with the best 360 views in Soller (not recommended for children)!

In the basement at Ca´n Ballester is a fully equipped gym with rowing machine, exercise mats, free weights to keep you healthy and fit while you relax on your holiday. Also a brand new laundry with washing machine and dryer.

Whilst the property includes parking, a car is not necessary as the villa is in the middle of the picturesque town of Soller with it's shops, restaurants and bars only a 5 minute walk away.

From the town square, guests can also take the antique tram to the Port of Soller and the beach or take the spectacular train journey through the mountains to Palma. This is the perfect property for those seeking easy accessibility to Soller town and Port while offering luxury accommodation.

Puerto Soller with its small sandy beaches, traditional marina and a choice of restaurants and cafes is a 10 minute drive away. The port can also be reached by taking the antique tram which runs from the town square (5 min from the property) to the port. Cala Deia is only a 15 minute drive away and offers a picturesque cove and choice of two restaurants. Deia and the historic town of Valdemossa approximately 20 minutes drive with choice of many restaurants. Palma is 30 minutes drive away. There is also the antique train that runs from Palma to Soller (approximately 6 times per day). The ride lasts approximately 1 hour with breath taking views of the Tramuntana mountain range. Fornalutx is an approximate 30 minute walk away and has been voted Spain's most beautiful village.

Brilliant, stylish, grand town house

  • 5 of 5

This is one very special property and so very special, so brilliant, its hard to find the superlatives to do it justice. Firstly, the photos don't.....its much better than that and its always such a welcome discovery to find that when so many fail to live up to expectation given by owner-taken photos. We came as a family of three generations, seven adults and an infant. It suited us so well in every respect and the sweet woman who runs the property, despite our arrival being 5 hours later than scheduled, was there to welcome us and guide us through everything..... so much so that we were settled in an instant. All the rooms and furnishings are exquisitely done and are faultless in every regard. So well equipped, so stylish and airy yet intimate and private too. Its but a few minutes stroll to a plethora of fun in beautiful Sóller with its bars, restaurants, sights and sounds too. Leaving was the hardest thing but we were unanimous in our wish to return when we can. I just can't recommend it highly enough and I say that as someone who took great pride in being a Homeaway member for years, renting my own house in the south of France. Do it, you'll love it!

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed last week with a group of 10 friends in this absolutely beautiful villa. The property is in the town of Soller and is in a great location as its a 3 minute walk from the plaza and heart of the town but is quiet and away from the noise. The villa has absolutely everything you'd need from a lovely pool, a fantastic kitchen (which is very well equipped) to really spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa is tastefully decorated and has lots of "areas" which is great when you have a larger group. We couldn't recommend this villa more and will definitely be back for another stay.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

Our two families, 11 people in total, had a fantastic two-week holiday in Ca’n Ballester. The property is situated perfectly within Soller and the garden has the most stunning views of the mountains. Ca’n Ballester offers everything you could possibly want or need. The interior décor is bright, beautiful and extremely stylish. Each room is very well equipped, especially the kitchen. The main living space is open plan with tasteful sectioned areas to relax or socialise. The bedrooms are spacious, (especially the two on the top floor) with modern, elegant bathrooms. The garden is furnished with enough sun beds, seating areas and a dining table big enough to spend many hours chatting and eating, if you wish to eat at home. The house is within easy walking distance to wonderful restaurants and nearby shops. Overall, we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Tisha was very welcoming and took the time to ensure our stay was perfect. We would highly recommend this property and hope to one-day visit again. Suzanne D and Allison W

Fantastic Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 2 week holiday in this brilliant family villa. The rooms all very spacious and luxurious, there is a great outside area for eating and relaxing and the swimming pool is amazing - even heated. It is also very easy to walk down to the town square and local shops. Tisha is very organised and enthusiastic and looked after us incredibly well. We hope to return in the future.

A perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were three families, six adults and six children (age 3 months – 6 years), who spent a fantastic week in Soller and in this beautiful house. The house location is perfect because we could enjoy Sollers village with shopping and restaurants as well as easily and quickly get to the beach and harbor. The house is absolutely magical, the decor is tasteful and stylish and the rooms are generous and large with private bathrooms to each room, which was very practical and lovely. The house's kitchen and living room was large and invited to socializing and cooking, the kitchen was especially well equipped. The garden and the heated pool made life wonderful for both adults and children. The service from the owners before and during our stay was wonderful - We really recommend this lovely house!

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, centrally located in Soller. We were nine people altogether (two families) that spent one week in this fantastic house. First of all, this is a truly spacious villa which easily fits two families without problems. Rooms are large and inviting, particularly the master bedrooms on the second floor. The veranda area overlooks the mountains and this is also where we enjoyed most of our time, including the meals and the "after beach" time (playing cards and board games with the kids!). We tried the dinner catering, which was a big hit with enveryone, including the younger ones (the Asain barbecue wings are to die for!). The pool is perfect for a lazy day at the villa, although we also took the time to make daytrips and excursions around the island. In short - a fantastic place and we are definitely coming back! Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you, not only for staying at Ca´n Ballester, but also for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. The "in villa" catering has been a huge success this summer, and I will pass your review onto Piers (piersdawson.com), I know he will be really pleased that you enjoyed his meals. Come and stay again - you would be so very welcome! Tisha
