About Sóller

Charming and peaceful, but also surprisingly grand, Sóller is surrounded by lush citrus groves dating from the 13th century - these fruits are the town’s gold. After the orchards there are views out to Port de Sóller and the sea in one direction and views into the Sierra de Tramuntana in the other. Our Gurus agree that the best places to stay in Sóller are those which make the most of this wonderfully peaceful island panorama.

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 the whole of the island.

What not to Miss

  • Sóller was a wealthy town in the 19th Century and home to many French ex-pats who added to the grandeur of the manor houses and public buildings. You’ll find Sóller even more charming when it's time to take a dip in the ocean: the best way to get down to the port is via a little old tram.
  • There's some seriously good art to be discovered here, with galleries showcasing works by Picasso and Miro.
  • There's also a lovely botanical gardens
  • and a graceful church, the Iglesia parroquial de Sant Bartomeu, which was built by one of Gaudí's students.

Travel Information

  • Palma airport is around 20miles from Sóller - which is around 40minutes in a taxi or private transfer vehicle. Port Sóller is another 4kms after that. There are a lot of taxis waiting outside the airport, but if you’re travelling at peak times you might have to queue. Cruise ships arrive at Port de Palma, which is just west of Palma, and you’re about eight hours from mainland Spain via ferry, and four hours from Ibiza.
  • If you want to hire a car - which we highly recommend if you’re staying in Sóller- we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars. It’s possible to arrive via bus, but you need to go into Palma de Mallorca first and change.
  • Mallorca’s climate is typically Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Its central mountains mean there’s some variation across the island - mostly dependant on how much wind you’re getting - but generally speaking you’re getting sunshine and 19°C+ between April and November, and the ‘beach holiday season’ runs between May and October. Autumn is probably best avoided because this is when the island gets most of its rain, and it can be very heavy, though winter is great for a walking holiday or a bit of winter sunshine. The best time to go is probably late spring, but purely because it’s a bit quieter and the almond blossom is out.
