Rest Your Head - 1902 TOWNHOUSE

Rest Your Head

The largest of the Balearics in the Mediterranean, you don’t have to dig too deep to discover that the old-school island of Mallorca boasts much more than beautiful weather and gorgeous beaches. A rich history, ruggedly dramatic interior landscapes, delicious fare and excellent local wines lend Mallorca a unique quality, complete with a picturesque coastline and sensational vistas at every turn.
Pristine coves sparkle with crystal waters. Historic towns and medieval villages stand side-by-side with glamorous seaside resorts and a charismatic capital presided over by a glorious Gothic cathedral. Culture and nature abound. And a variety of accommodation options cater to every class of traveller, ranging from traditional Spanish fincas to wellness retreats and five star hotels to design-savvy boutique properties.
Located in the island’s craggy north-west corner and set in a beautiful valley studded with citrus trees, Sóller is a traditional Majorcan town close to the sea, embraced by mountains and surrounded by woodland. It is impossible not to wake up in Sóller and smell the oranges, since the whole area is quite literally filled with trees laden with citrus fruits.
40 minutes’ drive from Palma airport and a five-minute stroll from Sóller’s main square, 1902 Townhouse is an elegant 20th-century townhouse that has been lovingly refurbished by its expat London owners to create a chic, clean and contemporary six-bedroom boutique property. Can Prunera Museu Modernista, located within an old art nouveau mansion built in the early 20th century, is also a few minutes’ walk away.
Thanks to gracious hosts Pete Holman and Martin Grant, guests at 1902 uniquely enjoy a warm and personal service, with all requests met with genuine care and attention.
Generously proportioned rooms are easy on the eye with Mediterranean textiles, neutral walls and furniture crafted by local artisans punctuated by textured feature wallpaper panels and modern chandeliers. King-sized beds are dressed with fine pillows and deep duvets, while spacious bathrooms boast twin sinks and walk-in rain showers. Nespresso machines, smart TVs, air-con and a superb three-course breakfast menu fulfil the needs of even the most discerning modern-day traveller.
