Thanks again from all of us here at Cas Fiols!

August Fiesta in Soller

My personal favorite fiesta is the Fire Fiesta. It takes place in late August and celebrates the patron saint of Soller, Saint Bartholomew.

A group called the Esclatabutzes puts on an incredible show that, quite literally, happens all around you. The “correfoc” or “fire-run” has become one of the most impressive shows on the entire island.

Once the “show” is done the locals move down to just in front of the market where they have a fire truck waiting to spray water into the crowd. Most people leave without seeing this part but it is a lot of fun for those who are willing to get wet!!

May Fiesta in Soller

This celebration is held to commemorate the victory of the locals against the Moorish invaders that took place on May 11, 1561.

It is a 2-part fiesta beginning in the port. The locals dress up as Moors and Christians and the Moors come in on boats and have a “fight” on the beach.

Later in the day it then moves to the square where the locals finally defeat the Moors in an incredible “battle” – Its a lot of fun to watch but don’t forget your ear plugs because it is very, very loud!!

This is one fiesta you must see at least once!

A New Website and A New Blog !

So, another fantastic summer season comes to an end at Cas Fiols in Soller, Mallorca. We have made lots of new friends, welcomed back lots of old friends, and once again had the most fantastic summer at our beautiful  home in the Valley of Oranges.

And then coming into Winter its time to take stock of everything that we do at Cas Fiols and move forward for the new year to come, hence we decided to redesign our website as the old one was over 5 years old and looking a little tired around the edges.

With a new website comes new thinking, new photos, and our first Cas Fiols Blog!

We plan to use this page to display some of the lovely comments that guests have been kind enough to leave for us following their stay, and also to let you know about special things that happen in the Soller Valley.

Hopefully we will update this page once a month so please come back and take a look.
