Be stunned by one of Mallorca's most beautiful corners: the Soller Valley by the island's famous old train. On this excursion you will enjoy one of the best experiences that can be done on the island of Mallorca. You will travel in the train of Soller, a train with more than 107 years of history that remains intact and retains all the charm of the past of time. We will travel by the Tramuntana mountain range through its forests and tunnels in a bucolic journey that will take us to the middle of a valley of oranges, lemons and olive trees, there is Soller.In Soller we will visit the Old Town and we will have time to stroll down the narrow old streets as you will enjoy the modernist architecture. You will also have the chance to appreciate the beauty of the main square, where you will find many cafes offering artisan ice creams, juices made with Soller's famous delicious oranges and my favorite cake "the almond cake", it is also a must when someone visits Soller!
Having battled and succumbed to the mañana pace of rural Mallorca, spring sees Peter Kerr and family relaxing into a supposedly simpler way of life, growing oranges on their little valley farm, Ca's Mayoral. However, even after the trials, tribulations and triumphs of their initiation, Spain has not yet finished with them. Embarrassing subtleties of the language, brushes with the local police, the unfortunate outcome of a drinking session - surprises are aplenty to test the resolve, stamina and, perhaps more importantly, the sense of humour of this venturesome (some would say foolhardy) émigré family. Their eccentric and colourful new friends are always on hand to help out - for better or worse - and add spice to this engaging account of tranquilo life from the author of Snowball Oranges. All the charm of Mallorca: where you seldom do today what can be more judiciously put off till mañana! 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Bryce.
