OK, so firstly this isn't a plants man's garden but it is in a beautiful mountain setting and has many appealing trees and shrubs. You need time to absorb the peaceful atmosphere and relax. Also it's not cheap to get in so you need to spend time there to make it worthwhile. Don't rush or this won't happen. There are... More

Visited with 5 year old son, nice activity for and hour or two at most, lots of shaded areas to cool off from the heat, also loved the alleyway with water fountains to run through. We got the Soller train to the gardens from Soller, stops right outside, so ideal.

Really easy to find, directly located in front of Soller tunnel, left hand side coming from Palma. Car parking inside the yard next to mainentrance, through the big gate, in shadow under Platane trees, free of charge. Dont park outside next to restaurant in summer - no shade..... Jardines de Alfabia offers a beautiful finca with historic interiors, such as... More

We visited the Jardins d'Alfábia on a very hot day and it was really a very pleasant excursion. We enjoyed the beautiful flowers, the "water show", the nice plants and the interesting museum, as well as the excellent "cortado" in the bar! It was very quiet and refreshing. (We travelled by bus No. 211, and on our way back to... More

Once we had found the jardins ( entrance obscured by broken down coach!) it was well worth the visit. Beautiful gardens and interesting house. Not many visitors which added to the feeling of calm. Must return for one of the music nights

We visited on a very hot and sunny day and it was wonderful to be able to stroll through the leafy gardens and experience something completely different. We loved the gardens for its beautiful colours, the fresh orange juice, the history, the fascinating use of water irrigation and the fact that there is this magical hidden oasis right in the...

The gardens themselves are not particularly interesting being mainly palms and tropical trees interspersed with some agapanthus (this in July) but the pergolas and courtyard are stunning with bougainvillea and plumbago. The old stables and olive press are especially of interest and the whole place is a peaceful haven next to rhe Soller tunnel. Two hours is probably enough for... More

A charming little place with some interesting buildings, plants and exhibitions. There were only half a dozen other people there (in June) so it had a really calm and tranquil feel to it. I imagine in the height of summer with a few tourist coaches it might feel a bit different. We had read that the cafe there was good,... More

We loved to stroll this ancient garden, especially on hot summer days, as it offers a lot of cooling shadows and nice water cascades :) The old oi mill was very impressive as well and considering that people have love this place for more than 1000 years already made it a special site for us! The bar has nice refreshing... More

We caught the train from Soller which now stops off at the gardens of Alfabia. You need to let the ticket guard that you are going to the gardens & sit at the front of the train as the platform at the gardens is very short. They let you off at the front of the train. The house & gardens... More
