|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This old homely country house, older than 100 years, it’s located on the road from Sóller to Fornalutx, at a 20 min walk to Sóller centre and 30 min to Fornalutx. Ca’n Tirany is a finca with a very beautiful grove of orange and lemon trees and a 100m2 garden with wonderful views of Serra de Tramuntana Mountains
The house has the character of the rustic Majorcan homes, with typical high-beamed ceilings. In the large stone floor lounge, with a wooden stove for the winter, there is a pleasant meeting place under an old fireplace, with comfortable sofas and armchairs. A door leads to the dinning room with a big table, chairs and a fire place. The kitchen is fully equipped with 4 rings gas hob, oven, fridge and a washing machine as well as a good selection of cocking utensils. Both from the dinning room and the lounge you can access the garden. Next to the lounge there is a bathroom. A small flight of stairs drives to the first bedroom with a double bed and a window leading to the garden. On the first floor there’s another wide bedroom on the left side with a double bed and on the left side, the bathroom and the third bedroom with twin beds. There are electric radiators in the bedrooms.
Downstairs you can use the wooden stove. If you ask before your stay, we can provide a good amount of wood for 45 € extra.
The garden is at the back of the house and has spectacular open views of the mountains around. At the bottom, under an old tree, there is a big wooden table and chairs, a low sofa with cushions and some hammocks. On the left side, there’s a reservoir 1.70m deep and some 35m2 area. Water is coming every week from a mountain spring, as it is used to water the trees of the finca, and it stays clean enough to be used to cool oneself down in the hot days. But we don’t use any chemicals like chorine neither has a treatment system and so, it can’t be considered a swimming pool. Next to the reservoir, a path leads us to the big lemon and orange trees grove. Special Offer
"The house is event better than I expected. Highly recommend it!"
The description of the property is very fair and more or less accurate. But it is not "near a beach" -this 5/6 km distant as stated. The property is a very characterful old and traditional country house with a lovely lived in feel about it and wonderful mountain views. The oranges/lemons were abundant and free for the picking and with the aid of a juicer (provided) we drank gallons of fresh sweet juice. There was ample cutlery/crockery and kitchen equipemnt but the cooker needs replacing as there were only 3 rings and neither grill nor over were in working order. Also, whilst there were a fine selection of frying pans there were only 3 small saucepans without lids. We enjoyed the hi-fi in the snuggery with its good collection of classical CD's and the ghetto blaster in the dining room tuned in to the Spanish equivalent of Radio 3. We also appreciated the large and silent ceiling fan in the bedroom. We found there was alot of traffic noise particularly the scooters, so kept the bedroom window closed. A second window facing the garden would have been very welcome.
The stone stairs were steep so unsuitable for elderly, handicapped people and young children but the groundfloor bedroom would be fine for these. The deep irrigation tank in the garden did not have guard rails - so children would need watching. A car is essential but there is no parking space with the property so it has to be left on the road. We had a wonderful holiday in this spectacular area of Mallorca.
"The house was beautiful, comfortable and unpretentions. It was very well equipped and a joy to stay in. Can Tinrany is located close to Soller but a moments walk from Biniraix, the mountains and awesome footpaths. Lola who met us in Soller to guide us to the house was charming and friendly. The house is set on the fringes of an orange and lemon grove and the views all around the property were fabulous. We had a simply wonderful and relaxing week."
"This lovely house is in a spectacular setting in the heart of the rugged and dramatic Tramuntana Mountains, the highest peak of which can be seen from the garden and through the kitchen and dining room windows. The house has its own orchard of orange and lemon trees. The whole area is full of citrus groves and all the more beautiful for that.
The house itself is rustic. It has three large and comfortable double bedrooms and one very good bathroom with sink, toilet, bath, bidet and shower. The water is plentiful and hot. There is also a second toilet, sink and a more basic shower on the ground floor.
The kitchen is well equipped and the living room has good rustic comfort. Heating in the living and dining rooms is with log-burning stoves and there are electric heaters for the bedrooms. When we were there in March we had to use the heating most of the time and making log fires was an essential part of the experience.
The house is ideal as a base for walking in the mountains and there is a great choice of wonderful walks strarting from, or near, the house.
We had a really enjoyable stay in Can Tirany and when we needed to consult the owner, she was extremely friendly and helpful. She was as keen for us to enjoy our stay as we were ourselves."
Can Tirany is een erg sfeervol huis met dito tuin; schitterende uitzichten op de bergen en de sinasappelboomgaarden. Het is een geweldige uitvalsbasis voor wandel- en fietstochten door de magnifieke bergstreek van Mallorca. Na terugkomst prima nagenieten met zelfgeperste en -geplukte sinasappels of wijn van de Landbouwcooperatie die 600 mtr verderop ligt. Soller is gezellig en ook prima aan te lopen; het strand ligt daarvoor net te ver maar is goed te doen op een (gehuurde) fiets.
Het huis heeft ruime, schone kamers en een authentieke sfeer; wij voelden er ons meteen thuis. De foto's liegen niet en de dames Catalina en Lola hebben ons efficient terzijde gestaan.

Notre séjour à C'an Tirany a été un vrai bonheur. Nous recherchions une maison typique, authentique le tout dans un cadre buccolique... Nous l'avons trouvé et nous reviendrons.
Merci aussi à Catalina pour son écoute et à Lola pour son accueil.
