The island of Mallorca, or the jewel of the Mediterranean features in a number of August Collections for good reason. Discover the quaint town of Port de Sóller:, home to our latest City Collection home and see what you could do in a day here. As you head to Port de Sóller from Palma airport, during the 40-minute trip, you can admire the sensational mountain views and endless olive groves. In fact, 90% of Mallorcan olive trees have an average age of 500 years, so it is no surprise they are a synonymous part of the island's landscape. This easy journey will set you in a relaxed holiday mode at the beginning of your August journey.

Upon arrival at Port de Sóller, expect to see rustic stone architecture, a historic tram travelling through the town, crystal clear waters and a panoramic view of the port full of yachts and sailboats. 

Book a boat trip for the day, or head out for a hike to enjoy the peaceful nature. There are 49 trails in the area, one of the most popular routes being Fortnalux - Biniaraix for moderate hikers, or Punta Llarga for hikers at all levels. Alternatively, you can rent bikes and explore the island in a relaxed way at your own pace.

Around the home

Moments away from the latest August townhouse, you will find the port lined with beautiful restaurants that not only offer exceptional local food, but also a mouthwatering view of the marina, sea and mountains in the distance. One of our favourite restaurants is the highly-rated Kingfisher, its simple menu covers meat, fish and vegetables in a relaxed tapas style, come hungry and leave happy.

Just beyond the picturesque port are the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and at almost 90km long, provide the backbone to Mallorca.

Enjoy these magical views as you stroll down to your August home. Part of the sold-out City Collection, this characterful townhouse is situated on a peaceful road only two streets back from the port. Live in an idyllic neighbourhood where the locals drive Vespas through the narrow streets.
