Robert Graves House

Reviewed By Alan F - Bournemouth, United Kingdom

Not to be missed. The video shown before seeing the house is excellent and sets the scene well. Take time to see the house as there is a lot of detail to take in.

La Cartuja de Valldemossa

Reviewed By Brucestewart - Livingston, United Kingdom

We had purchased tickets to see the room that Chopin and Georges Sands had occupied during their stay at the Monastery. To gain accees to the room, which unfortunately we were unable to do as it was unaccountably roped off, we had to walk through a portion of the monastery. This afforded us with a good view of the garden within the central enclosed area and some of the corridors. That was about it.

You think an orange is an orange and the same for a lemon..think again...very educational and enjoyable stroll through the orchards of this producer. Modern toilet facilities, excellent fresh orange juice and Mallorcan bread/tomato/olive oil snack at the end of the tour. Ate a persimmon...ever done that? Surprising tourist hit and worth the short walk from centre of Soller.

Serra de Tramuntana

A craggy, limestone mountain range stretching the length of the northwest coast of the island.

Reviewed By WImom - WI

The Serra de Tramuntana is a mountain range on the island of Mallorca, listed on the Unesco World Heritage list. Beautiful vistas of the Mediterranean along the coast. There are many almond and olive trees in this area. June and September are the best months to visit. One of the cities that we visited in this mountain range is Valldemossa. The old part is a quaint town with some narrow streets and pretty viewpoints of the town. Chopin lived here for a short time and some of his belongings are still in the museum.

Jardins de Alfabia

Alfabia, originally the residence of the Moorish viceroy of Majorca , Ben - Abet, who ordered to make the mudejar celling in 1220, lies on the southern slope of the Coll de Soller. The house and the garden combine an area of outstanding beauty and have been declared by the goverment a cultural monument in 1954. The murmur of the water is a constant backdrop to the whole walk. Inside the house, worthy to mention "el llibre de ses franqueses" given by the King Jaume I in 1246 to Majorca and the gothic chair, hand made in Flanders at the end of XV century.

Reviewed By Manuela L - Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

A perfect starting point for a nice walk in a romantic garden in a finca like environnment in the past, wonderful vegetation, the architecture and Gardens, all this has his history, and is opened to the pulic and desserves also special attention; flowers smelling in the air, fruit, also some horse, all come together to create a spectacular scene.
It worth a visit.

Royal Carthusian Monastery (Real Cartuja)

Famous composer Fredrick Chopin once stayed at this former medieval monastery with his then-lover, George Sand.

Reviewed By angeleyes27 - Marlton, New Jersey

The Carthusian monastery is right in the center of Valldemossa. There are several interesting rooms such as a church, pharmacy dating to 1779, Prior's cell and a library with very old books. There is also a exhibit room with paintings as well as Gardens. It was interesting to see how the monks lived. The palace of King Sancho is included with your admission. Make sure you go beyond the courtyard of the building adjacent to the monastery. I missed it and it was quite interesting.

This is a really nice pretty little village located within a reasonable walk from Soller town centre - picturesque little square with fridge magnets for sale by the bucket load at every turn. There are many bars and restaurants about the place all of which provide a delightful opportunity to sit and rest and some - well worth a visit and a truly enjoyable walk from Soller.

The Archduke Way

Reviewed By Pinnervillager - Pinner

We were travelling by Public Bus from Palma. Be aware that there are far fewer busses from Deia to Palma than from Validemossa to Palma and they get full so if you hope to pick up a bus back from Deia you ought to factor in a taxi ride back @ $40 + in case they are full.
We started at Deia for this reason - but most don't. If you want breakfast before you start get off the bus in village centre but if not get off at the stop at the bottom of the hill just before the village.
The start of the path is not signposted but you walk up the hill up the access road to The hotel Es Moli (it's on your right as you climb up towards the village) and keep climbing up the road which serves other properties.
Eventually you get to a fixed timber gate which you have to climb over and you are on your way.
The way up is very steep with the path crisis crossing backwards and forwards as you go up the slope and is overhung by trees. It was dry when we went up in October but path could get very slippy if wet. It's not always clear where path goes but there are some pink marks and other walkers have built stone cairns to indicate the right path.
You think you are never going to reach the top but eventually the path opens up and you start up an open rocky slope.
At the top a path which runs from right to left you have the option of shorter route turn right which goes along the coast or a longer route to the right ( which we did not take)
The way to Validemossa is clearer and you are likely to see walkers coming the other way. It is a partial ridge walk but you then start on a long decent. Near the end of the walk they were doing work to the path and whilst we could take a direct route it looks like they may restrict access in future for environmental reasons. You cold still get to Validemossa by a more circuitous route. There is an information hut at the end of the track by Carrer Oliveres where you can obtain a map if you want to do the walk the other way round!
