About
This property is going to be closed during the period of November 1st until February 28th. Alfabia, originally the residence of the Moorish viceroy of Majorca , Ben - Abet, who ordered to make the mudejar celling in 1220, lies on the southern slope of the Coll de Soller. The house and the garden combine an area of outstanding beauty and have been declared by the goverment a cultural monument in 1954. The murmur of the water is a constant backdrop to the whole walk. Inside the house, worthy to mention "el llibre de ses franqueses" given by the King Jaume I in 1246 to Majorca and the gothic chair, hand made in Flanders at the end of XV century.

The gardens are easy to reach via bus from Porto soller. The bus leaves you just outside the entrance to the gardens. The gardens are fantastic with lots of lovely old wisterias and palms.

Beautiful romantic gardens full of shade. Not overcrowded. Small bar inside with nice place to sit and enjoy the garden. Excellent place to take photos. Perfect place to have a wedding. 😇

A beautiful setting of tranquility. The gardens are fabulous and the house is also interesting. We spent an hour here in the heat of the day, but thete is lots of shade.

We enjoyed a lot the beautiful house and the wonderful gardens. It is really worth spending a few hours there. We travelled with teenagers who also love it.

We were there very early on a Spring morning, probably a good time. A fairly small but beautiful, slightly Islamic garden in a beautiful setting.
Not overly manicured but somewhat relaxed with an equally pretty house. all a bit a faded and soft.
Easy to reach by bus from Palma., the Soller electric railway passes close by.

We enjoyed it very much but don't expect fireworks.

We are on our honeymoon. Asked the receptionist if we can take photos - she said yes. But when we come dressed nice - the owner told us its a wedding session - 120E. She was very rude. I felt like a criminal when she looked at me. Do not go there unless you want your day ruined.

Absolute disgrace. We (group of 3 hobby photographers and 3 models) wanted to take pictures of the models with backgrounds of the gardens. We asked the lady and she said it was ok. The moment we started near the entrance she came to us that we had to pay 120eur per person extra. Her argument was that we had professional equipment with us but they were normal reflex cameras. We asked our entrance money back and quitted the gardens. When you say first ok and then ask 120eur per person (x6) it feels like a scam.

I want to be kind, however I was disappointed with our visit here. Although it was inexpensive, I came out feeling I wanted reimbursing. The garden held no beauty in September. From what I could see of the planting it may be a little better in Spring time. The old buildings had some charm and historical interest, we found relaxation and refreshments at a small cafe bar, but unfortunately the grounds lacked attention, actually barren in some places.My opinion would be to get a garden designer in to give it a boost, the small pond in the centre is crying out for a Monet makeover! Obviously Spanish planting! Lots of potential, needs some passion.

This is a very small botanical garden and quite pricey for the size, but it is very pretty and has a magnificent entrance and rather lovely cafe bar to sit in.

We enjoyed

Lovely garden, grounds and house to visit for a (very) short trip. We drove an hour to visit the place and were a little surprised that it only took half an hour to walk through the entire place including taking pictures... we expected it to be a lot bigger.

There's a little cafe on site with maybe 5 tables to sit that offers (overpriced) drinks, but no food! So def bring something with you to snack. Our visit actually lasted half an hour longer just waiting in line and the poor server was absolutely flustered trying to get everyone their drinks and then no-one had a place to even sit down.. it was quite ridiculous.
