Default Jardines de alfabia

We visited these gardens yesterday "..... Easy to find as they are just by the Soller tunnel on the Palma side

They are very much a work in progress, with the house and stables being much more the finished article ..... But well worth the 6euro entrance fee

The gardens have a moorish irrigation system .... A sort of mini generalife gardens if any of you have visited the Alhambra

We spent about 3 hours in the gardens and manor housed and this included a nice long rest at the small cafe that served the mos fantastic fresh orange juice from their very own oranges

We then drove through the tunnel, through Soller to Fornalutx and had a late lunch followed by a walk around this beautiful little town ..... A Great day out


We also realised the Soller train stops at the gardens .... The Bunyola stop and so next time think we shall combine a visit with a train trip

We visited the gardens a couple of years ago and agree they are a lovely peaceful experience (and the orange juice as well!). I think we must have been there before any works started as we didnt notice any work in progress at the time - it was just so tranquil and restful. We had a quick lunch at the little restaurant/cafe next to the tunnel afterwards which was ok. And agree that Fornalutx is just gorgeous

As far as I remember there is no fee for the tunnel ,the drive is very straight forward & the gardens are fab.

If I remember rightly there is a charge, not sure how much, not a lot, around a few euros?
