A haven of peace
With its tranquil and peaceful ambience, sleepy Biniaraix is the ideal spot for calm contemplation and relaxation.
The hills are alive.
The famed Barranc de Biniaraix that commences close to the historic washstands in the village is a mecca for walkers. The gentle, cobbled path leads up into the mountains, affording glorious views along the way. The prize is the Puig de L’Ofre, which at over 1000m, offers a wonderfully rewarding climb for those who like a challenge. Carrying on the winding mountain path, you finally reach the stunning Cuber reservoir: well worth the two-hour hike.
Two hearts beating as one.
Curiously, Biniaraix has two distinct parts, one in the upper part of the village with its pretty square, church, bar and grocery, and lower down the hill. In the lower part you’ll find Can Det, which is the oldest oil mill still in operation in Mallorca. Enjoy a stroll past the river, right into Sóller town along bustling Calle de Sa Lluna.
Surrounded by the Sóller hills, just below Fornalutx, it is the place to get away from it all, offering magnificent rural vistas, bucolic scenes of verdant hills and pastures and a delightfully friendly and genuine community. All this, and yet just 50 minutes by car from Palma Airport and fifteen minutes on foot from Sóller.
Peaceful. The best word to describe it.
Believe it or not, upper Biniaraix belongs to Fornalutx municipality and the lower village to Sóller.
Hidden and with its own time that never seems to pass, Biniaraix lies tucked away at the feet of the Tramontana Mountains. Own a house here and consider yourself one of the few fortunate.
