The Balearic Islands region
“If your image of Mallorca is flamenco nights and fish and chips, you should take a drive north from Palma on the C711. As if by magic, you'll emerge from a tunnel under the mountains into the seductive town of Soller, its tangle of narrow streets cunningly configured by the island's Moorish medieval rulers to repel coach parties.
This is the back-country Mallorca that so beguiled Frederic Chopin and Robert Graves (not to mention Michael Douglas and Claudia Schiffer), and nearby Port de Soller is a perfect springboard into the Serra de Tramuntana, the compact range of dove-grey peaks that crowds in along the southern horizon. Each morning, the sun scales these hills and floods the scooped-out harbour with light: your signal to hop aboard the rattly tram to Soller and stride straight out into the mountains. Alternatively, there are coastal rambles through olive groves and orange blossom, rock roses and orchids. It's lush as lush can be.” Sunday Times, 25 April 2004
The property is just 2 minutes walk to the seafront where the following amenities are available: beaches, restaurants, supermarkets, boat trips/hire, cash point, chemist, tram stop to Sóller (and onward train to Palma), taxi rank, bus stop for Palma, Sóller, Deia, Fornalutx, Valldamossa, etc.
There are a number of golf courses within 30 minutes drive. We can assist with arranging Tee times if required.
A great location for swimming, walking, painting, eating out, bird watching or just relaxing.
Palma airport is 35 minutes away. Car hire is not required. Transfers can be arranged. Please note that you can park right by the house for loading and unloading but longer term parking is restricted, within the older part of the village, to residents only. However, there are a number of free car parks within a couple of minutes walk as well as pay and display.

"Clean, well kept, convenient apartment"
Strong points: Top floor has a nice view of the port, there is a public terrace 2 min walk away with a sea view, convenient to all activities in Port Soller. Good contact with the owner's associa… More
Many thanks for your 5 Star review. We always appreciate feedback from our guests and we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay.
With regard to your list of “Weak points” I believe most of your comments to be a bit unfair and/or inaccurate. Therefore I will respond to them individually:
“No dishwasher” – This is clearly identified on the website. We may install one in the future if there is significant demand.
“No internet” – This is clearly identified on the website. Free WiFi and Internet are both available locally. Many, if not most, of the restaurants and bars now offer free WI-FI to customers. There are also 4 internet cafes around the bay.
“Access may be difficult for people with restricted mobility (tight spiral staircase inside, alleys and staircases in the old town)” – We clearly state on the website that the property has a spiral staircase. We also state that the property is not suitable for people with Restricted Mobility or for Wheelchair Users.
“Parking is 2-3 minutes' walk away down an outdoor staircase or a small street.” - Once again, it is stated on the website that parking is available within a couple of minutes walk. There are 4 free car parks all within a few minutes' walk. For info, the “outdoor staircase” you refer to, is known locally as the “Mallorcan Spanish Steps” and is a highly photographed scene.
“Be advised that Port Soller is very developed” – There are many pictures of Port Soller on the website which show how it has developed over the years. There has been a considerable investment in the port ensuring that any development is attractive and tasteful. This includes one of Europe's top 5 hotels.
“Most inhabitants are elderly tourists, mainly from Germany, some from the UK or other northern countries, very few Spaniards here” – This may be the case in October, when you stayed at Ca'n Barbara. However, this is definitely not the case all year around. The Port is extremely popular with couples and young families of many nationalities. Furthermore it is visited by many Mallorcan families from all over the island.
“Its beaches are not the best, and the coast is rocky, with cliffs (very impressive views, and probably some wonderful hiking, but if it's a beach you want, don't come here” – There are 4 beaches around the bay, two soft sand, one hard sand and one stony. The sand on the two soft sandy beaches stretches well into the sea and, certainly in my view and many of our previous guests, they are excellent. In fact, the Port of Soller is the only place to offer sandy beaches on the entire west coast of Majorca.
“It takes at least 40 minutes to get to a good beach” - The nearest sandy beach is 10 minutes walk away and the furthest is 20 minutes away.
“I was not given the address prior to arrival (instead, directions to a meeting point). It would be better to give the address too.” – We provided you with a detailed map showing the exact location of Ca'n Barbara. Just 5 days before your holiday I asked if you had any outstanding questions! You did not mention this.
