About the property

House in La Huerta, Soller, North West Mallorca, Balearic Islands - Quiet, Private and Tranquil Location Close to Local Rural Town, its Port and Beaches

Tucked away at the end of a private lane, this charming 400-year-old historic property set on three levels- previously a famed old vicarage - provides complete security, privacy & tranquillity. It enjoys breathtaking views of the Tramuntana mountains and Soller Valley. Lovingly restored to an exceptional standard, it offers marble, French oak & hand-made terracotta flooring & ancient pine beams throughout. The property has electric gates fronting its beautiful entrance which includes parking for four cars, a lawn & small pond frequented by fish and frogs in summer. Surrounded by spacious, traditional stone terraces - both sunny and shaded -the rear garden has a large swimming pool (12x6 metres), al fresco dining areas and below, accessed by a flight of stone steps, an acre of wooded garden and orchard bursting with orange, lemon, olive and fruit trees. Five minutes walk to tram that runs between bustling Soller town and its port's beaches.

For rentals, the property is licenced by the Balearic Government's Tourist Board, and for clients' peace of mind, we offer a comprehensive legally drawn up contract for the rental period.

About Alan Stewart

My writer wife, 19 year-old son and I left our hectic life in central London for the beautiful Soller valley back in 2001 and have never regretted the move! It is a veritable paradise with orchards of golden lemons, oranges, olives and almonds all offset by the splendour of the Tramuntanas and the glittering sea. We live a very rural life, grow our own vegetables and keep a small harem of friendly hens, clucked over by cockerel Carlos. During the summer we tend to travel so recently decided to open up our home to guests - the sort of discerning souls who love the best and simple things of life - tranquillity, sun, relaxation, beauty, good gastronomy, spectacular scenery and charismatic and friendly locals. We therefore very much look forward to extending a warm welcome to you soon!

Alan Stewart purchased this house in 1997

Why Alan Stewart chose Deia - Soller Region

La Huerta, meaning the orchard, is Soller's best kept secret. Although surrounded by olive groves and citrus orchards it's just a stone's throw from both Soller town and port. The neighbours are welcoming, the air pure and fresh and one feels a million miles away from traffic and hustle and bustle. All this just a brisk 15 minute walk from the town!

We fell in love with our historic vicarage because of its beauty, warm ambience and idyllic and private location. We love that we can park right up to the door in our own courtyard and hear nothing but the sounds of nature and lie on the terrace smiling up at the clusters of stars at night. It is a special house with a magical history. We would never want to live anywhere else.

What makes this house unique

The joy of living in a rural location is being able to pluck your own lemons and oranges from the trees in the orchard each day, enjoy your own organic eggs and sit out on the peaceful terrace watching the sun set over the tramuntana mountains by night, with a glass of chilled Rosado in hand! The property is open plan downstairs, with plenty of sunlight on three sides and yet cool in the summer and cosy in the winter! One would be hard pushed to find a finca with so much character and so many assets which is why we chose our ruin and lovingly refurbished it in the first place. All our fittings and materials are of the highest quality. The house was painstakingly restored by Soller craftsmen with passion, skill and local pride.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to say a big Thank you for amazing days in your house in Soller! We have as you know been there on a regular basis for many years now but this is by far the very best! Not only a very warm, beautiful and "homely" feeling in the house but also the most welcoming landlords we ever could have wished for. A big thank you and a lot of hugs from all of us, and a special one from Liv who is very fond of "Allen" :))
