Hidden among green hills, but only 800 m along a footpath from the centre of Soller, lies the charming Ca’s Sant. The scent of oranges wafts from the valley, and a fresh breeze blows from the natural harbour nearby.
A building, next door to the manor, houses four junior suites and a double room. Beautiful terracotta floors, and whitewashed walls combined with rough-cut stone, give the rooms a rustic feel. They are furnished with mahogany furniture from the early 19th century, including antique wooden chests. Rambles can be started right from the hotel.
A little railway runs from the centre of Soller to the nearby harbour, Port Soller. From there you can take a day cruise to the bays nearby, including the magical Sa Calobra ravine on the island’s north coast.
In the vicinity of the hotel, and in the centre of Soller, many elegant stone town houses dating from around 1900 are evidence of the new money that came here through the orange trade, and the return of newly enriched Mallorcans who had emigranted to France in order to improve their lot.
