Traditional Fince w large pool and terrace

Overview

Property

Updated: 14-Nov-2016
Finca in Biniaraix: large estate, located in the gardens of Biniaraix: near to beaches, set in the orange valley of Soller

This finca is located in the gardens of Biniaraix just a few minutes away from Soller. The spacious garden of 2000 square meters offers about 50 orange and lemon trees and lots of plants. One small terrace is just outside the kitchen and a perfect place in early morning. The spacious large terrace is sitting just a bit higher than the garden, our wonderful palm tree overlooks the terrace and offers quite some shade. The house is adjacent to another finca, but the neighbors can't look into any one of our rooms nor onto the terrace. The style of our finca is traditional. We have everything you will need to relax, to enjoy, to cook with family and friends, but there are no fancy items – one can still feel the traditional atmosphere of this former farm house, built by thick stones with wooden beams on the ceilings. In the bedrooms, the kitchen, the living room and the bathrooms the floors are covered with traditional tiles. Our casita, the little extra house is a treat in the evenings: we often go up there, enjoy the magnificent view and have a glass to drink. Our latest addition is a lovely lounge corner with comfy lounge chairs and a shady roof over it, so you may sit down there any time and enjoy some.The casita has heating for cooler times and aircondition in the summer.

The pool is in the back of the garden - when you swim in it, you will have breathtaking views into the mountains or you can just sit at the pool, use one of the many sunbeds and relax. For children´s safety, we have put a small fence around it.

In the middle of all this beauty we ask you two favors. Please have the main gate closed at all times, otherwise occasionally you might have a strolling dog visiting you. Cats: Never (!) feed them; we don´t want them in our estate and once you start feeding, they will come back. Thank you.

A note on cleaning. we have not integrated our cleaning rates into the General rates as this would give a wrong impression for clients renting longer than one week. The cleaning after your rental stay is 200€ for the main house and 50€ for the Casita, the one bedroom guest house. Should you stay longer, Linnen and towels will be brought to the house after each week and old laundry will be collected by our caretaker. However, any inbetween cleaning would have to be paid by you.

About the Owner

For over 30 years my wife owned this lovely estate in the golden valley of Soller in the middle of the Sierra Tramontana. She is a mainly a house wife, I am a university counselor in Berlin. We try to spend a lot of time in Mallorca but rent out the house over a large part of the summer as we are both still working. But we put a lot of love into our Spanish home; we care for the house, the garden around it, the trees and the plants surrounding the house. While my wife has committed herself to make the house beautiful inside and outside, I love to work in the garden. It is my wife´s taste and style what you see inside the house. We thought long about a pool and now we enjoy it many times a day and from sparkling waters we have a gorgious view into the mountains and the orange trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in Finca Giret, Sollér for a week in 2013. We were 7 people including 3 couples. The rooms are very fine and the garden excellent for outside dining and grill. The pool are situated with a view to the mountains behind the villa and great seatings around. Garden with lemon trees and orange trees. The villa is placed in quiet environment with a small and narrow access road - small cars are recommended. Many nice locations and dining places in the vicinity, within driving distances or bicycling! Acces to walking trails are near. We enjoyed the recommendations from the owner very much. Ole from Copenhagen.

Lovely Finca in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We truly did not want to leave this lovely finca in it's own orange grove. The finca is traditional in style with old uneven stone steps and the original cobbled stone floor in the sitting room area. This is not the property for you if you have mobility problems or perhaps toddlers who may struggle with the stairs but we loved it's character. The views from the finca and grounds were stunning and the saltwater pool was wonderful. We had delicious freshly squeezed orange juice from the oranges we picked in the grounds which tasted amazing! We loved the location and the town of Soller. We did not venture too far as we wanted to spend most of our time enjoying the pool and dining outside on the wonderful terrace savouring the view. There were hiking trials close by but we took more leisurely after dinner strolls around the paths around the property. My husband enjoyed his early morning runs around the paths and trials whilst myself and children enjoyed lay-ins in the comfortable beds with shuttered windows to keep out the early morning light!

We certainly recommend a stay at Finca Giret for those wanting either a relaxing or active stay close to both the mountains and beach as Port de Soller was only a 10 minute drive away.

Paradise at the foot of Tramuntara Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfectly located for combination of hiking in the mountains with visits to charming villages, as well as Palma. Housed in an orange garden with an inviting pool, it is not difficult to enjoy holiday life here. Diversions with trips to Deia, Valdemossa, Soller, Fornalutx and not least the charming Port Soller resulted in making the stay as a perfect experience.

We provide host and his local organizer the best references.

Beautiful Finca with beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place, very nice and clean house. The pool is making this finca to a perfect place for holidays. Short distance to Soller, and also to the pittoresque village of Fornalutx. It´s a perfect place for both walking in the hillsides and bicycling. We can highly recommend this finca for families and group of friends.

Very spacious, wonderful scenery, a lot of privacy

  • 5 of 5

The communication with he owner was great from beginning to end. We received great recommendations and information about the area and surrounding cities such as restaurants, shopping tips, bars, excursions and the like. The arrival at the house was very well organized. We met with a nice lady at a meeting-point in Soller and were taken to the house then.

The house and especially the garden are just wonderful. There are many orange and lemon trees as well as avocado and pomegranate. There are very cosy areas to enjoy the whole day on the property: a very beautiful and perfectly clean pool, a dinner table under the illuminated palm, several beach chairs and on the roof of the small house for dinner and sundowner.

The house is very nice furnished and has great local design. The kitchen is fully equipped and the professional grill allows to have wonderful bbq.

We did not hear much from the neighbours, everything was nice and quite. The nature around the house is just impressing.

We stayed for 2 weeks with a family of 4 people, but there would definitely have been more space for more people. We can highly recommend the property and will come back for sure.

Lovely holiday with grown up children

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our grown up children and it was perfect. Lovely happy memories of sitting by the pool, having freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast, and watching the stars from the roof terrace. We didn't explore much as it was very hot but loved Soller, Puerto de Soller and Fornalutx for shopping and restaurants. I hope we will come back again.

Location

From the Owner

The beauty was irresistible. And we have now added some wonderful views and impressions. Early and late in the year, when sun still remains flat over the horizon, our pool terrace has full sunshine with probably the best views into the mountain range you could imagine. This view will never be distrubed by any other buildings, it is a place one won´t forget. During the summer season you have the same view, but most likely will sit under the large sun shades at the pool and we kn ow that many of our guests loven the late evenings at the pool. A different view again is from the roof of the Casita, the guesthouse, over the valley into the garden and onto then terrace. Itg is here or at the pool where we can catch the last glimpse of daylight. So we have many reasons for buying such an estate.

Facilities

From the Owner

You have to experience it! Behind the orange gardens the mountains are climbing into the skies; long hiking paths will bring you up to the highest peaks and valleys of the mountain range Sierra Tramontana. Just in front of the mountains you may take a short walk to Biniaraix and Fornalux, two old picturesque villages. While Biniaraix is directly next to our Finca – don´t worry, it is calm and there is no traffic - one can take a walk of 20 min up to Fornalux. We both love to go there in the mornings, sit under the sycamore trees and enjoy the first cafe con lecce. Soller with its beautiful and inviting Plaza and the Calle de Luna are maybe 15 minutes walk from the Finca. It is pure enjoyment to sit there for example in Café Soller, have a cold water and enjoy.
