Delightful quiet gardens on the way to Soller

On the road from Palma to Soller, you reach a split where you can either pay to go through the tunnel or take the winding mountain road. Off to the side sits Jardines d'Alfabia... read more

This Moorish Garden us beautifully designed and makes clever use of water, perspectives and trees. The dancing fountains Are fun ( press the button), the setting is very peaceful, the use of space and tiny amounts of water is clever, the house is interesting and there are many beautiful views. Good orange juice, cheesecake and even modern toilets. We got... More

This was my second visit here and thank goodness it has now been rescued from falling apart. It is such a beautiful oasis and shows an interesting era of Majorca's history with it's setting and atmosphere. The gardens are mysterious with its pathways and towering ancient palms. The house is very quiet and shaded allowing you to wander from room... More

Relatively small but beautiful garden. There is a café. You could sit there and read for hours after walking around.

My wife and I visited this place and were both completely underwhelmed considering the high entrance fee (€6.50 when we visited). It's basically an OK but unremarkable garden with paths and water features (that all had stagnant water). There is a house and some other things to explore such as stables but so little effort has been put into them... More

On the road from Palma to Soller, you reach a split where you can either pay to go through the tunnel or take the winding mountain road. Off to the side sits Jardines d'Alfabia. Dating from the time of the Arabic settlement of Mallorca, the gardens offer a lovely relaxing area to stroll. There are formal plantings, fountains, ancient wisteria,... More

This is a quiet enclave of a centuries-old country house and some gorgeous gardens just off a busy road but with its own soothing and quiet atmosphere. Well cared-for and makes a nice side-visit if you are headed in that direction. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK

We arrived here in October, well past the end of the flowering season, but we never the less enjoyed the beautifully laid out gardens and water features. It's not Bodnant Gardens but it is worth a visit.

In an amazing valley in the mountains near Soller, this garden could and should be amazing, as there are very few attractions of this type on this beautiful island. However it is obvious that the owners/manager do not care too much about aesthetics ! Broken concrete paths, scruffy borders, exposed plastic pipes, and electric cables, are everywhere. There's metal reinforcing... More

This little jem is set just before the tunnel to Soller, coming from Palma. It's a bit expensive for what you get to see, but still worth a visit. Gardens are lovely and give you a flavour of Moorish Mallorca. Drinking fresh orange juice in the patio bar is quite enjoyable. We also loved the inner rooms of the hacienda.... More
