As far back as 1888 a British traveller in the Soller area waxed lyrical: “Nothing could be more beautiful than the views of the sea and the land. The island rounded in a succession of curves and bays. One headland after another opened up magnificently.” So more than one hundred years later it’s little wonder that the magnificent ridge of mountains that stretches the length of Mallorca’s northwest shoreline attracts walkers worldwide.

How to get to Soller
Apart from the spectacular train journey from Palma, Soller is easy to reach by car and bus. There is a direct major road from Palma (the Ma-11) which tunnels through the mountains, taking about 30 minutes. There is also a longer, more scenic road via the Ma-11a which hairpins over the mountains in a most attractive manner and saves paying the tunnel toll. Buses also run regularly from the capital city of Palma.
So whether you’re looking to rent a holiday villa for family and friends, a traditional townhouse to soak up the atmosphere of the place, or a chic, contemporary apartment for a well-earned romantic break, we at Balearic Villas would be happy to help you find your dream rental property in the pretty town of Soller.
