Big spacious rooms, elegant ceiling paintings, an adorned olive wood floor, and various small details give an aura of Paris to the house, while its Mallorquin heritage is also very clear with its exterior stone walls, roof tiles, and wooden beams.

Living in Sóller is the perfect mix of stress free living and busy town. Enough distance from city life, but far from isolated. This well kept picturesque village on the the northwest coast of Mallorca is busy mostly all year round due to hiking and biking tourists apart from the summertime visitors, and then there are the 15,000 local residents living here. The town offers everything you expect from a city but in a small and very pretty package, with a large variety of restaurants, bigger supermarkets, small local specialty shops, pharmacies, health centers, gyms, and more. Also you have all what the adjacent villages of Port de Soller, Fornalutx and Biniaratx have to offer. And 30 minutes from the airport and Palma, Sóller has great access for exploring the rest of the island, especially now, as the tunnel fee was just removed after a 21 year run.
