Very highly recommended. Lots of shady spots. Popular place for painters. Kids will love the water feature and the goats.

Like many others we revisited the lovely garden at Alfabia, which is located just before the tunnel on the Palma- Soller road. There are many excellent reviews of the place. But not everyone knows that a few miles south, just of the same road near the Santa Maria roundabout, is the entrance to RAIXA, a beautiful old Majorca estate with... More

The gardens were old and very pretty. The old house was very interesting. The fresh orange juice at the cafe was very refreshing. Easy trip by bus as it stops right outside. Not a huge attraction so a couple of hours is ample.

Although most of the buses that go to Soller pass by the entrance it's only 1 an hour which actually stops, there so don't make the mistake we almost made! that said it's a truly lovely spot which is best to visit towards the end of the afternoon so the heat is a little less intense...the Bougainvillea is wonderful at...

There are only a few places in Majorca where you can get a taste of how things were in Majorca centuries ago. This is one of them. It's not a palace, it's not a castle, it's a Posessió (old Majorca estate) with beautiful gardens and water fountains. I live here, but visit it from time to time, especially when I... More

We first visited Alfabia 25 years ago when our children were teenagers. They still have fond memories of our day out there especially the freshly squeezed orange juice we had at the bar in the centre of the garden. We tried it again this year just as good. The gardens are a delight, cool and shady on a hot day.... More

The gardens are well laid out with excellent information boards at each section. I am really just a vegetable garden but I always enjoy our visit.

We had the privilege to enter Raixa already 12 years ago ... when only hidden sign posts were leading to the arabic villa. Space for parking was limited to 6 cars .... entry was granted after loud shouting. The interior was in a ~ mediocre state. What a difference to today. Only 2 days per week (tue and thu from... More

This is a lovely place - so quiet and green! We visited very early in the season and late in the afternoon, but had a lovely time wandering in the garden, trying out the water feature and visiting the house. It must be a real haven when the weather is hotter in high season.

Fantastic little find. Beautiful Gardens and a wealth of historic culture. Only 6 euro to go in and well worth it.
