Lovely property, stunning mountain views
This was a lovely property, clean and welcoming. The garden was beautiful with amazing views from the patio and terrace, Everything you needed was there! I wouldnt recommend it for the elderly or young children as the stairs were quite steep up to the bedroom. Sallie the owner was so helpful to us via email and was available to answer any questions. The location caused some confusion with the local bus driver/taxi firm . You need to ask for L'Horta de Biniaraix (not Fornalutx or Soller) as they want to take you to the centre of each! I would definitely recommend it to a friend/relative, especially if they want to immerse themselves in the true Mallorcan way of life, as we did. The walk from the property up through Biniaraix to Soller was wonderful and took about 30 mins. Fornalutx was lovely and the Pizza restaurant there was very friendly. Soller itself is lovely and of course the beach at Port de Soller is a must. If you dont hire a car, the bus stops just along to the left of the property and goes straight there. We would definitely stay there again. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Beautiful house in spectacular location
We have just come back after spending a lovely week in this beautiful finca. The house is perfectly located, set in the mountains with the most amazing views to wake up to every morning. The nearby village of Fornalutz is within easy walking distance and has great restaurants and cafes and is a very pleasant place to spend evenings, as is Soller with all its shops. Palma is within easy reach too, about 25 minutes drive, via the tunnel, very nice city.The house is large and has a beautiful garden which our children loved spending time in, but the house has all mod cons that you could need too. Lots of paintings around the house and I actually did some painting myself! Would love to come back one day.
Activity and Interests
The port of Soller and beaches are about a ten minute drive away from the house. The famous vintage wooden trams take 10 mins from soller to the port. At the port there are 2 beaches set across from each other in the bay, one of which-The Repic is in a pedestrianized zone and is the quieter of the two. both sides of the port have many restaurants and places for coffee or a drink. There are also beautiful coves in Deia and Valldemosa within an hours drive.
Palma airport is a 45 minute drive away, where a hirecar can be picked up. A train runs between Soller and Palma.
A car is recommended.
Less than 5 min drive to Soller and Fornalutx the nearest villages, and a wonderful short walk up to Biniaraix.
My house is perfect for a walking holiday. it is very near the famous ancient barranc steps that go to cuber. There are many other great walking trails nearby. if you like to walk in then mountains, you will find this the perfect house for you.
Soller has all the shops, restaurants, banks and markets you will need. Fornalutx has one food shop, restaurants and 3 bars.
There is a recently opened cinema/shopping complex/Festival Park within a 30 min drive. The complex has shopping, international restaurants, bowling alley and reptile park.
Municipal swimming and tennis
there is an excellent open-air olympic size swimming pool with 5 clay courts and 4 paddle tennis courts. take the turning left opposite a restaurant called "Sa Tuelera" as you head down from fornalutx. it has a fabulous setting with changing rooms, a snack bar and sun loungers. it is 4euros a day per person to swim and 5 euros an hour for tennis.
