Overview

About the property

Cottage in Soller, Mallorca, Spain - Peaceful, Romantic And Inspiring Setting

Tranquillity, privacy and spectacular views perfectly describe this charming hilltop casita, the origins of which are thought to be as a winter livestock shelter then a wine store for produce from the property itself. Opening onto a leafy terrace, the large timber beamed bedroom has a king size mattress on a sandstone base. Three steps up through an archway is the open plan kitchen/dining/living room which opens on to another two terraces with sun lounges and al fresco dining areas. The cottage is insulated and has reverse cycle airconditioning, wood stove in bedroom and wood fire in lounge. Park off street under Sa Viña’s shady lemon trees, and meander to the casita. Part of the path is quite steep but the view justifies 3 or 4 minute walk. Sa Viña is a perfect retreat for those wanting relaxation or recreation. Help yourself to seasonal fruit including grapes, oranges and figs, (delicious and chemical free). Satellite TV, DVD and CD player, WIFI and books are there for your enjoyment.

If you prefer me to call you, just email your number and I'll be happy to answer any questions.

Margaret Wilson purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Margaret Wilson chose Deia - Soller Region

This is a very comfortable house, usually with cool breezes across the terrace in the summer, and fireside sofas where you can read or watch tv in the cooler weather. The bedroom is the original casita (or small house) with a 2m x 2m bed on a sandstone base. The open plan lounge/dining/kitchen was added some time ago. We made the beams by hand using a mould and table loaned by a friend's father. Recycled doors and windows were sourced from friends and neighbours and walls were constructed around them! That history is a story for another day....

What makes this cottage unique

We love the view to Soller from the terrace from early morning right through to night time, when the village lights shine.

Figs, grapes, oranges, lemons, pears, apricots and apples are some of the seasonal fruit you are welcome to enjoy - help yourself!

There's plenty of off street parking among the lemon trees, views from the path to the house, and privacy once you arrive.

Free wifi, TV, books, maps - everything to make your stay relaxing.

It's a pleasant stroll in to Soller, or to the Port for a swim.

.It has been a great place to stay.Hope to stay again next year for longer, Pauline and John Sept 2014. .We love the house! Thanks, Jay. December 2013.

.Home now - tired and cold! Problem is no pic can do that view justice  - and you don't get the tinkle of the sheep bells, or the rattle of tram in the valley, or the sweet aroma of the orange blossom. Thanks again. Regards,Stephen. April 2014.

. Had a great stay. Loved the house and the location and was a great holiday all round. Peter. March 2014. . 3 times earlier we have had a wonderful vacation in your cottage in Soller. Once again we would very much like to spend a vacation there....Irene and Bo, June 2014.

Absolutely fantastic stay at this beautiful place, which exceeded all our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cottage, which exceeded our expectations. Although it has just one bedroom, there is loads of space, both inside and outside. Glorious views from different parts of terrace. Spotlessly clean, with everthing provided for a very comfortable stay. Communication with owner also excellent. Would love to come back!

Sa Vina

  • 5 of 5

After finding Sa Vina after a 45min search in the dark with torches we walked into the most tastefully decorated villa. We walked outside onto the veranda ,then sat sipping wine at 1am enjoying Soller by night. In the morning we could see the full magnificent views that were in front of us to take in and appreciate. A 20min walk into Soller and 45min into the Port it really is a little gem. This was the first time we booked this sort of holiday but not the last. Margaret was more than helpful even though being the other side of the world. A most fabulous holiday.

Outstanding, idyllic holiday property.

  • 5 of 5

SaViña was recommended to us by my brother, so I was fairly confident that it would be a great holiday destination. We were not disappointed. It was everything my brother had told us, and much, much more. The description on Owner's Direct gave an accurate idea about the property, but the reality excelled on every level.

On arrival we were immediately impressed by the stunning location. The views down to the town of Soller and the surrounding mountains were magnificent. SaViña opened into the bedroom, a large, airy, bright space which felt immediately welcoming, with crisp white bedding on the impressively large bed, whitewashed walls and plenty of storage/hanging space. Step lead up to the generous sized lounge, which is far more spacious than the many holiday cottages for two which we've hired in Britain. The kitchen was very well equipped, and the bathroom well appointed, especially the lovely powerful shower.

Outside was even more impressive, and was where we spent most of our time at SaViña. The terracing wraps almost completely around the property, which is totally private in it's position. On each side there was comfortable, stylish furniture suitable for lounging, sitting, dining and relaxing.

We were most appreciative of the welcome bottle of wine and freshly picked lemon. The abundance of fresh citrus fruits was a real bonus. We enjoyed freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast (great electric juicer), and my salad dressings were a simple concoction of fresh lemon juice and olive oil.

I have already recommended SaViña to friends, and would definitely stay here again if we visit Mallorca in the future.

Apart from being an amazing holiday property, SaViña is ideally located for exploring the area around Soller, itself a real gem. It is surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, and boasts great access to Port de Soller which has a lovely beach and safe swimming as well as a fantastic choice of restaurants, cafes and shops. The mountain train from Soller to Palma is a must, with a spectacular journey zigzagging up the moutainside above Soller and on to Palma, which itself is a vibrant city, with fantastic shops and stunning historical architecture. The train can be viewed from SaViña, across the valley. I loved playing "spot the train" every evening, as it chugged in and out of the trees and tunnels.

Also recommended are the wonderful walking opportunities from SaViña. Our favourite was the well marked route to Fornalutx.

A lovely place with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

I walked up from the bus stop one evening in early March just before sunset, sat down on the terrace, looked out over the valley and felt that I could move right in and never leave this place. The only thing missing would be a few chickens under the fruit trees,… The house is beautiful and the surroundings extraordinary. Everything you need is there, including fruit from the trees and two (!) fireplaces. I will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: I'll try to have a few chickens under the fruit trees for your next visit! It's fantastic to hear how much you enjoyed your stay - the view over the valley from the terrace and that everything you needed was already there - thank you for taking the time to let us know.

Walkers Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Sa Vina was beyond all our expectations, luxury Majorcan style with all the home from home comforts. A very private elevated position with unrivalled views over the Soller Valley. The wrap around terrace with fruit groves next to the outdoor pergola offered the opportunity of either sun or shade throughout the day.

A beautiful and tranquil setting situated perfectly for all the local walks but still with easy access into Soller and the Port, via a scenic foothpath that we enjoyed time and time again.

Marg and Chris are perfect hosts and supplied everything we needed that for us was the most enjoyable month we can remember.

Some people search for Paradise, Shangrila or Nirvana, but we have found Sa Vina.

Thank you Marg and Chris for a truly special holiday that will never be forgotten.

Wonderful holiday property

  • 5 of 5

Sa Vina is a very special and unique holiday home. It has the feel of a traditional Mallorcan cottage but has all mod cons. So comfortable and relaxing! Decor is tasteful and charming. The view from the terrace is so superb you could sit there all day! On this occasion we did not hire a car yet were easily able to enjoy many local walks and the short walk into Soller through olive and lemon groves was a pleasure. Margaret and Chris are just perfect hosts: never intrusive but so friendly and helpful if you need them. Our holiday was perfect apart from being too short. Back home we are missing the warmth of the sun and the scent of the orange blossom. Our first visit but would love to return. Sandra and John Woodcock

Location

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The port of Soller with safe, sandy beaches is a short drive away. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in the Port and in Soller.

Travel:

Palma airport is approximately 45 minutes drive, whether you rent a car or take a cab. We can help with public transport information.

Distances:

Amenities in Soller or Puerto Soller are only a very short drive away. It will take about 20 minutes to stroll to the village, and a little longer to walk to the Port.

Further Details:

Its about 20 minutes or so to walk or a short drive to Soller or the Port both with retail shops, banks, restaurants and cafes. In Soller’s leafy square, have a meal or tapas and a drink and watch the passing local life or the tram crossing the plaza on its trip between the Railway Station and the Port. Local activities: diving, swimming, tennis, walking, cycling, fishing, wind-surfing, water skiing, mountain biking. Golf courses are nearby. What previous clients have said: We have just returned home from a lovely sunny Mallorca to a wet and cold UK.We wanted to thank you and let you know that Ian had a lovely time and really enjoyed the place. It is delightful and the views from the terrace are stunning.We have friends whom we are sure would love it too and will recommend it to them.Susie. January 2014 We would like you to know that we've had a wonderful week in your nice casita Sa Vina! The whole casita is furnished and arranged with love and everything you need is there. We liked the Majorcan style with the nice flagging especially in the bathroom and the gorgeous "stone-walled" sleeping-room. We've had a real good time having breakfast in the sun on the terrace (always with your delicious oranges), and having dinner outside with this wonderful view to Sóller (always with delicious fresh lemon-water)! Maybe we can come back some day...we miss it already. Thanks a lot! We will recommend your cottage. Kind regards 04/04/11. We have been meaning to contact you to thank you for the opportunity to stay in beautiful Sa Vina in November. The weather was lovely and we were so happy to have a fire in the cool evenings after enjoying the great walks in the area during the day. 10/11/10. We have had a wonderful 2 weeks in perfect Mallorca weather with temperatures 30ºC+ so thank God for the AC in the bedroom. Sa Vina is a bloody marvel. We felt at home from the first minute.
