    Disconnect To Reconnect…

    A visit to Ecocirer’s farmhouse, which lies in a protected part of Mallorca is a must. Whether you pick out a fresh orange or some olives, this is where to reconnect with nature’s generous gifts.

  • Meet Your Hosts

    Meet Barbara and her husband Martijn, owners of Ecocirer –  possibly Mallorca’s best sustainable retreat. Champions of sustainable living, this creative couple are nature and food lovers at heart.

    “People have a perception that Mallorca is a party, package holiday kind of place. The truth is this stereotype of the island is only from a small part of the island. It has so much more to offer.

    When I first came to this UNESCO world heritage area, I thought it was unbelievable. My wife and I are really passionate about introducing guests to the concept of ‘living like a local’. One way in which we do this is by providing, local, fresh healthy food which takes care of people’s wellbeing.”

  • Need-to-Know

    Every breakfast is created through inspired planting, nurturing and homemade cooking. Served in the tranquil courtyard, Ecocirer celebrates vegan and vegetarian dishes only (also accommodating any allergies and special dietary needs).

    Bear in mind that the town of Sóller follows a medieval street pattern. The streets are often narrow and sometimes one-way.

    The creative flair of the owners is evident throughout this small boutique hotel where you’ll find Ecocirer natural cosmetics, beautifully made cookbooks and herbal teas.

    The pool is the perfect size for taking a cool dip on a hot day, but don’t expect to do lengths.

  • Location

    Ecocirer is a beautiful oasis in the heart of the village of Sóller, also known as the Valley of Oranges. Set in a beautiful location beneath the mountains, this family-run restored townhouse is located on a quiet side street just a few minutes walk from the town’s train station and the bustling square.

    How to get there

    Travelling to and from a holiday destination is often responsible for at least 70% of the carbon emissions of the entire trip. So, how will you vote with your wallet when you travel?

    One of the best ways to get to the island – if you are on the mainland – is by ferry. A better and slower way to travel. 

    If you must fly, you can get from Palma Mallorca Airport (PMI) to Sóller by bus, taxi, or car. The distance between the airport and Sóller is 24 km.
