Can Bou House
Sóller / Balearic Islands, Spain

Let yourself be enchanted by the mountains that turn an incredibly beautiful red, when illuminated by the evening sun.
Modernly renovated, incorporating old elements into the new structure, the 1200 square feet (112 m2) house features a spacious open living room on the ground floor with a seating area by the fireplace that keeps the house comfortably warm. The house open-plan living area also boasts a light-flooded dining area and kitchen with direct access to the private garden.

With mild winters and hot, sunny summers on the islands, life shifts to the Mediterranean garden with pool and several seating areas, as well as an outdoor kitchen. At a given time of the year, the most varied of fruit trees grow in the garden (oranges, mandarins, lemons and still young but already bearing apple, plum and apricot trees). A short 10 minutes drive from your property, you will reach the port of Sóller. With a fantastic location in a picturesque bay the port offers the only sandy beaches on the west coast of the island, most of them are designated as 'Blue Flag’ that assures the water quality.
Beautifully set in a peaceful countryside location, Can Bou House is situated 5 minutes by walk from Sóller downtown, a modernist village nestled in the Serra de Tramuntana valley, also known as the ‘Valley of Orange Trees’ as its wooded hillsides form the backdrop and fertile soils allow the cultivation of citrus fruits, almond trees and figs. Considered one of the most beautiful villages in Mallorca, Sóller greets you with an exciting blend of architecture that reflects the spirit of its history that dates back to the 13th century. The majority of the sights in the narrow streets of the old town are ideal for simply wandering through and exploring, and will lead you to the Plaza Constitución, where you will enjoy a fine selection of pastries, a freshly squeezed orange juice, or some traditional tapas.
From the centre of Sóller, take a trip in the Sóller train, which will take you to the capital of Mallorca, Palma. During your journey, you will appreciate the wooden wagons, while admiring the hundred-year-old olive trees that adorn the mountains. Overlooking the sea, Palma de Mallorca's gothic cathedral is the major landmark in the Mallorcan capital Palma de Mallorca and one of the largest religious buildings in Spain. After visiting the massive Sa Seu Cathedral and its museum housed in the bell tower, stroll through the narrow street and head to the original Arabic Baths. After a relaxing moment in this little oasis, indulge in the history of Palma while enjoying the panoramic views from the Bellver castle, which rises majestically over the bay of the city. At night time, feel the heartbeat of Mallorca and be entertained by a fascinating world-class dinner flamenco show at the historical cabaret of Son Amar!
