The small Majorcan mountain town of Soller is charming, rural, unspoiled and very much vibrant with daily life being lived to the full in tree lined squares, outdoor cafes and family run restaurants. Casa de Montse is a townhouse built in 1910 with the arrival of rich Majorcans looking for a summer residence in the cool of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains and was originally two separate houses. Built from local stone, over four floors with traditional green wooden shutters it is extremely pretty and blends seamlessly with the outstanding beauty of this simple town.
Inside, Casa de Montse is comfortably furnished to a very high standard in a modernist style that ties in beautifully with the stone tiled floors and high-beamed ceilings. During the restoration in 2006 the wrought iron railings of the balconies, glass doors, hand painted plaster mouldings, and stuccoed walls were all restored to their former glory recovering the original frescos or replicating the ones too damaged by time. Of particular note is the staircase that mimics Carrara marble perfectly. The spacious rooms and bright airy aspect make this space one of the most attractive we have found
