You can see all the necessary information on one page and customise what you’re looking for according to your needs and enjoy a fantastic holiday in the divine town of Sóller.
Sóller is a historic town which didn’t see much of the Roman occupation in Majorca, probably due to its seclusion from the rest of the island, which has since been altered during the 1990s with a tunnel and toll road directly through the mountain. Soller derives from ‘sulliar’ meaning ‘golden valley’, a name given to the town by the Moorish lords. Booking holiday rentals in Sóller means that you can also benefit from such exclusion from the rest of the island, with mainly the old-style tram between the Old Town and the port being the best ways of getting around. Sóller as a settlement was often highly desirable for its rich land; the Moorish invasion posed regular threats as they saw the potential of the ‘Vall d’Or’ (Golden Valley) with its plentiful orange and lemon groves. The town has been rich in exports for a long time, which is shown in its direct rail network to Palma and to the Port de Sóller via an ornate tram. This authentic town has a particularly noticeable French influence due to the locals that worked there through the orange trade, the French connection with the conquest of Majorca by Jaume I and also the French Revolution in 1789 which saw many French farmers flee to the island.

When to visit Sóller
We recommend that you visit Sóller during the months of March and April, or in September. You are sure to enjoy the sunshine, but make the most of the island with fewer tourists and milder temperatures. The temperatures at this time of year average out at around 14 to 18 degrees Celsius, which, during this period of staying in the mountains means that you can still explore lots without getting too hot. The summer months of July and August are when prices of Sóller apartments and temperatures are at their highest. If you’re looking for low prices on your accommodation, a secret to know is that the months of September, October and even November are attractive months to book your holiday. Sóller is a beautiful place to book your Sóller rentals during this period, particularly if you’re travelling to Majorca as a cyclist. The prices have normally lowered and the temperatures are still warm and the days long. If you’re visiting for a cultural event, we would highly recommend visiting in May/June when the Orange Festival (Fira Taronja) takes over the town with the celebration of oranges and citrus. The island is also host to a range of festivities such as the Saint Sebastian festival in January and the Easter celebrations in March and April which are all interesting to see in various towns across Majorca.
