GATED ORANGE GROVE AND POOL

Fornalutx House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

GENERAL

This gated home is nestled in the 11th century village of Fornalutx, just minutes from Soller and the beach town of Puerto de Soller. The home has been lovingly converted from an historic olive mill. Antique ceramic tiles accent the bathroom and kitchen walls, and all metal work including, gates, door fixtures, lamps, etc. have been hand-crafted by the town blacksmith - once the mayor of the town, and now our caretaker. Once you enter the gate, you are welcomed by cascading bougainvilleas, climbing roses, lavender, orange trees, and rosemary, and the soothing flow of the creek nearby. There are 5 parking spots - 4 cars can fit within the gates, and one just off the street.

INTERIOR

The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 newly remodeled/updated baths and a newly remodeled/updated kitchen. The eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave, gas and electric stove and oven, and of course, a refrigerator. The living/dining room serve as the center of the home and has an open fireplace, elevated ceiling and opens onto the terrace, pool and garden. The view from the living room and terrace is vast with roof tops, bougainvilleas, majestic mountains and the magnificent valley below.

GARDEN

The pool is flanked by climbing roses, bougainvilleas, hibiscus plants and the orange grove. Sitting by the pool is one of the world’s greatest treats, with the gentle flow of the creek; the distant sound of the goats’ bells as they climb the hills; the lingering scent of jasmine and orange blossoms; and spectacular view. Just beyond the pool and orange grove is the petanc court (bocce ball). We’ve had some great tournaments there!

BEDROOMS AND BATHS

The two upstairs bedrooms share a beautifully remodeled bathroom with antique mallorcan tiles. The larger bedroom, with king size bed, has a terrace overlooking the garden and valley. The second bedroom has two twin beds and a view of the dramatic mountains. Both rooms have A/C. The third bedroom is off the foyer, and has a double bed. This bedroom is steps from the second full bathroom with shower and tub. The fourth bedroom is a studio off the kitchen and has a separate entrance - this room uses the third bathroom, that has a free standing shower.

VILLAGE

The home is very private, despite being just a 2 minute walk to the village plaza. As you walk along the cobblestone streets, you pass the carefully tended stone homes, all of which contribute to the beauty of the village. The plaza is the center of this ancient Moorish town with a quaint, fully equipped convenient store, a bank, post office, natural and traditional pharmacy, bakery, and several wonderful restaurants and cafes, and a magnificent church. The cafes at the plaza are open from the early morning until 1 or 2 or 3 at night (depending on how much fun you are having - the owners tend to stay open as long as you are ordering). There is also great hiking trails just steps from the house.

THREE COUPLES FROM SWEDEN AND FINLAND

  • 5 of 5
We loved this very charmful and well equipped house with so many nice terrasses, the wonderful garden full of roses, oranges, lemons and flowers of all kinds. The pool area is better looking than any other we have seen. You can feel this house has been a very loved spot for many years by people with good taste.
We also spent some time on the boule range when the gambling devil hit us. Some good walkings are also close by. There are few better places to rent in our opinion. Maybee not with small children or for disabled people.

Owner's Response: Dear Charlotte and friends!

It makes me so proud and happy that you felt at home in our house!

Right now I am sitting in our kitchen in our home S'Aubareta in Fornalutx,
it is midnight and my husband and I just came home from a walk to the little Plaza. The air is filled with fragrance from the Orange and Lemon trees that are in full bloom. Some birds are still singing and the stars are as bright as they can only be here in this village. The surrounding, vild mountains form a zigzag shaped silhouette against the slightly lighter night sky. I feel so privileged
and happy!!

Thank you! Dafne

We stayed here for a week with our family in May, could not have been more pleased. It is a great house with a private orchard. Two walking minutes from town. Would definitely go back.

RETURN TO FORNALUTX

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 8 adults with age range of 18 to 50 something, were all delighted with the property at first sight. So many different areas offered to relax in and the pool was superb. Attention to detail was spot on and the minute walk to the small village centre a bonus. Such a beautiful house with a real feel good factor. Owner very helpful with lots of local support. Couldn't have asked for more.

Owner's Response: Dear Claire,

Your review so much warms my heart!! The work that goes into
keeping a big house like S'Aubareta is hard to describe. It is a work of
love and it does feel wonderful when someone else really appreciates
ones efforts!

Thank you and welcome back!!

A HOME WITH LOTS OF COLOR INSIDE AND OUTSIDE...A MUCH LOVED HOME

  • 5 of 5
I fell in love with his house, the village and enjoyed chatting and shopping with Lucia at her lovely boutique in town....check it out.....she has some fun things to wear. The three of us... elderly mother, son and wife arrived here begin of May in the evening. What a lovely surprise when we saw the house and the village by daylight. This villa is charming....books, lovely pottery, and I loved the pictures done by Dafne's mother. I loved it all. The house is well stocked in the kitchen and bathrooms. The breakfast area is nice and cozy with an electric heater warming it up on a cool day .The WiFi connection worked well and to keep in touch with friends was no problem. It is a special place and, please, where can you go into the garden to pick your fresh orange juice? The pool is lovely and the white and black striped lounges look great with the décor. We enjoyed the sun, tried the water but the temperature was still a bit cool.....though my son and wife said "perfect for biking in the mountains." The grocer store is only a short walk and is a great source for the local wines, bread, fresh vegetable and cheese.. All three of us highly recommend this place for a lovely vacation.

Owner's Response: Dear Elisabeth!!
I loved reading your review, loved that you felt the many laughters and sensed the happiness that our family - now four generations - have experienced in our home, S'Aubareta! We live in San Francisco, but both our daughters have selected to get married in Mallorca, with Fornalutx as their base.

In three weeks we are going to Fornalutx to celebrate our youngest daughters wedding!! Lovely!!!

Thank you for writing, it means a lot to us! So happy that you had
a great vacation!!

A WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We feel so happy here! Is it the air, the view, the beauty of nature, the quiet, the cultural experience or the deep, dark sleeps? March is cool in Majorca, but with the portable heaters, the cosy fire in the fireplace, a delicious home cooked meal and local wines, we were most content and mellow. This home is exactly as the photos suggest - lots of private, get-away space for whoever wants to rest, read or suntan. The off street parking is a real gift. Pepe is a Godsend. How will I ever be able to enjoy a morning when I cannot go out and pick oranges for my juice? What an absolute treat! Dafne answered all our questions before we arrived and everything worked out perfectly. It is like being a a rustic cottage with all the freedom and conveniences. The only thing missing were some cards or games to play; but we had books, TV and the internet connections were perfect and very important. My husband cycled every morning - I never knew a mountain could be so challenging.Club Med was a lovely nearby restaurant as was the pizzeria (The best pizza any of us have ever had!). I certainly will recommend this wonderful home, near such a variety of things to explore. I would love to come back. Ahhh so relaxing.
