Charming and peaceful, but also surprisingly grand, Sóller is surrounded by lush citrus groves, after which there are views out to Port de Sóller and the sea in one direction and views into the Sierra de Tramuntana in the other. Most visitors come here on day trips on the old steam train from Palma and fall in love with the lovely views and fine selection of cafes and ice cream and pastry shops around the picturesque main square with its impressive, and surprisingly Modernist architecture. But there are plenty of reasons you'll be glad to stay if you can, and some of the best places to stay in Sóller are also some of the most romantic on all Mallorca.

And there's some seriously good art to be discovered here, with galleries showcasing works by Picasso and Miro. There's also a verily lovely botanical gardens.
The best places to stay in Soller are almost impossible to reserve, if you leave it too late, during the peak summer months. So unless you want to come here in the quieter months, get organised and book well ahead.
