Wow, where to start. What a fabulous apartment, a full sea view from the bedroom, and a view of the port from the generous balcony. Judith had provided everything we needed for our two week break, plenty of fans in each room and air con as well, even down to the complimentary wine and fruit in the fridge for our arrival.
We rented apartment 7 which was perfect for the views of the port. Many evenings spent just people and yacht watching, although I did mention to Judith that a pair of binoculars for the super yacht watching would have been a bonus.
We didn't even mind walking up the hill up to the apartment and the stairs inside the building, an opportunity to walk off all the lovely meals we had in the port.
The apartment provided a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area, such as taking the tram to Soller, driving into the mountains to Deia and Fornalutx, or just relaxing on the beach. I have to add though that a car is not necessary as all areas are equally reached by taxi/tram.
The apartment was spotless and cleaned halfway through our stay, and free WiFi was perfect for contacting our family through our stay.
Thank you Judith for turning our holiday into an unexpected second Honeymoon as we could not have asked for a more romantic setting to just unwind, relax and soak up the fabulous atmosphere! we will definitely be back. …
Peaceful retreat in itself and a great base for local exploration
Great apartment, clean and well-equipped. View from balcony is stunning overlooking the marina. View from the bedroom out towards the sea and the sunset was idyllic.
Puerto de Soller is a lovely venue for a relaxing holiday with the quaint tram to nearby Soller and old fashioned train into Palma . Like a trip back in time!
The apartment is an elevated position on a quiet street, so it was uphill every night to get home - great to work all those tapas off! There were numerous flights of steps to get to the apartment which was on the top floor - bit of a trek with the suitcases. Not a problem for us, but I can see it would be for some. Loading and unloading can be carried out directly outside the apartment and then there is free parking at the marina just a couple of minutes away.
Local transport is good although we did hire a car from the airport (only 30 mins away) and travelled to local towns and villages up in the mountains. Well worth the effort as the villages are very picturesque. Mallorca has a lot more to offer than most people realise!
The island appears popular with groups of walkers and cyclists. We found the cyclists to be very courteous towards other road users so it wasn't a problem.
As the island isn't that big, Puerto de Soller is a great place to use as a base and explore.
All in all a great week in a great apartment. I wouldn't hesitate to come back to Mallorca again, in particular to Puerto de Soller and this apartment!

Villa nicole with large garden
We stayed at Villa Nicole, for the first time in July.
From the moment we stepped out of the taxi and were greeted by Liz, it was such a lovely enjoyable experience. We have travelled all over the world, staying in rental properties, and this one was top of our list.
We had a wonderful welcome pack waiting in the fridge, lots of linen, and towels, plus, they had even thought of sun hats and umbrellas. How often we have arrived at our destination, only to put our cases down and find we have to rush around to buy water wine etc, after a long tiring journey. In one winter rental we did a few years ago, we had to beg for extra blankets, when the temperature took a dive.
Carry on as you are LIz and John it was perfect, we will be back ASAP
Liz and John should write a manual, for other villa owners. They treated us as they would their own family and it was a home. …
