Majorca is a paradise for walking, particularly around the Soller Valley, a world away from Magaluf and the high rises of the south coast. Here is tranquillity, stunning scenery and, for us Brits, the wonder of guaranteed blue skies and sunshine! Our favourite time of year is May when it’s warm enough to walk unencumbered by layers of clothing, a time when you can feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and yet you can exert yourself without feeling uncomfortably hot.
Our hotel in the Soller Valley
We have visited Soller a number of times, having fallen in love with it on our first visit 8 years ago. Since then we have returned a number of times, staying at our favourite hotel, the Ca’l Bisbe, a former bishop’s palace quietly tucked away in the heart of old Soller. From the balcony we look down on the inviting blue waters of the pool and marvel at far-reaching vistas of the surrounding mountains. There is no better place to breakfast (or dine) than on the sun-soaked terrace beside the pool, sipping freshly-squeezed orange juice or, later in the day, a glass of chilled wine!
We have taken a number of groups of walkers to Soller and, without exception, they had a wonderful time. We take great pleasure in introducing people to the wonders of this magical place and our reward is to see their smiling faces, to hear their excited chatter, to witness new friendships formed. Unfortunately, due only to lack of time, we are not visiting Majorca in 2013; however we are always happy to answer questions and we can provide self-guided walking information.
