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.

Margaret Wilson purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Margaret Wilson chose Sóller

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.

.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.

Everything to our satisfaction!

  • 5 of 5

We immediately fell in love with Sa Viña, of course ;-))

We slept very well; the bed is extremely comfortable and the bedlinen (etc.) as well, so we were very grateful indeed.

The fireplace is delightful (we got our daily first exercise when carrying up the free firewood), the selection of books exquisite (I needn’t have brought so many books of our own), the oranges a real treat - the kitchen tools and cutlery adequate, the shower perfect - in short: we are happy we chose Sa Vinya!

And I haven’t even mentioned how beautiful is the house itself, everything just to our taste, built, restored, renovated, decorated, redecorated with a pronounced sense of aesthetic and a great respect for the surrounding landscape and traditions. In the beginning of our three weeks' stay even the weather gods seemed to be in our favour, but then it all changed and we could no longer enjoy the fantastic view from your beautiful terrace. But the weather was like that in all Europe, with snow even in Tuscany and Venice....

All the best from Eva & Asger

.......and relax!

  • 4 of 5

Very quiet property accessed via some very narrow streets, and a lot of steps. The views and seclusion are totally worth it.

Owner's Response: Hi Clive - really pleased to hear you loved the views and privacy at SaViña. Yes, I agree, some roads are narrow, but they contribute to Soller's appealing charm. Hope to see you another time. Marg

Beautiful cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for three weeks in September and just loved everything about it. The cottage is full of rustic charm with amazing views of Soller and the mountains. We also had the pleasure of meeting Marg and Chris who are delightful and just the perfect hosts. Highly recommend Sa Vina to anyone to who plans to stay in the Soller area. Soller is a lovely place and we have been many times before but now we have found Sa Vina we will most definitely not be staying anywhere else and look forward to going back and enjoying another relaxing stay at this fabulous pretty cottage.

Owner's Response: It's really great to know how much you enjoyed SaViña. You said the privacy was important and you enjoyed the views so much, specially over a glass of wine. One evening we were delighted to be invited to share the wine and views with you - thank you.

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.

Car: recommended


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.


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


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.
