This Charming village cottage is approached by an ancient cobbled lane at the end of a cul-de-sac. It nestles just below the centre of the village overlooking the orchards. A short walk up the lane past the ancient washing place and the town hall brings one to the Plaza.
Behind the house, beyond the gardens, are the woods and a Torrente - or stream, there are many species of birds living there including escapee parrots and a pair of Nightingales.
The house consists of an open plan living/dining and kitchen leading, through French doors, onto a secret walled garden, perfect for breakfast. There is also a cosy cave at the back of this little garden, to escape to in the heat of the summer.
Another set of French doors lead out of the living room area, down 3 steps, to the larger secluded garden and swimming pool. Two nicely appointed bedrooms with bathrooms lead onto the pool area through French doors.
For al fresco dining a table is set under the boughs of a lovely grape vine by the pool, with total shade in the summer. There is also an outside shower provided by the pool.
Two magnificent cypress trees stand sentinel over the gardens, they form an arch through to a charming patio which overlooks the river with wonderful mountain views. The owners are very keen gardeners and there are an abundance of flowers in addition to lemon, orange and Olive trees.
The whole property is very quiet and tranquil with no traffic or immediate neighbours, except a few chickens.
The gentle twittering of the birds in the woods around the torrent create a rural atmosphere.
The main square or Plaza is only 2 minutes walk from the property, the 4 bars and 6 restaurants are all very central. A bakery, small supermarket, pharmacy and 3 boutiques cluster around the square. There is a tennis court in the village and about 2 km away a sports centre with tennis, paddle tennis and Olympic size pool.
The port of Soller is about 5 km with sandy beaches, a marina, where one can rent a boat, or take trips up the fabulous mountain coast, many good restaurants and beach facilities to tempt all ages. Car, scooter and bicycle hire are also available. The Tramuntana mountains of this region are quite magnificent and offer great walking. The coastline with its delightful coves and calas are still completely unspoiled. There are many beach activities and excellent dining.
There are some marvellous things to explore in Mallorca and don't be put off by reports of Magaluf and Arenal, all distant from this area.
It is possible to drive down to the end of Calle Alba to drop off luggage and groceries.
We are Andrew Wood, a film producer, and Judy Wood a Montessori teacher. We fell in love with Fornalutx and were even married here 35 years ago. We have owned a small village house and holidayed with our children here ever since. We have decided to split our time between Fornalutx and Australia, Judy's homeland.
Judy Wood purchased this cottage in 2012
We wanted a larger house with a garden and pool and when this became available we were delighted. It has always been a cosy house and now that it is our home we hope you will agree it has been tastefully renovated. It is so tranquil and although only a stone's throw from the village square, shops and restaurants, it is like living in the country. Also we have a very special friend who lives in the house opposite.

We really enjoyed our stay last week and found the house very comfortable and perfect for our needs. The weather was perfect too. We will definitely be interested in a return visit next year.
We had a wonderful stay at S'Hortet in Fornalutx. The house is tucked away close to the village square and also very private so you get the best of the village whilst getting away from it all in the garden. A lovely house with everything you need for your stay, comfortable with all amenities. We are looking forward to staying again soon
A beautiful home away from home, the cottage had everything we could want or need, and was exactly as described. The back garden was beautiful and so peaceful at night - looking out over the mountains whilst enjoying a glass of wine was just perfect. We made good use of the pool, our 5 month old daughter also made use of the paddling pool (big pool was a bit cool!)
The village was quiet and welcoming and the local supermarket had everything we needed for our daily grocery shopping. The bakers served delicious bread and pastries, and the village square hosted a few friendly cafès and bars.
The whole holiday was simply perfect and we enjoyed every minute of our time spent at the cottage!
We had a truly wonderful holiday in S'Hortet! As a family of four, 2 teenage kids, we had all the space and resources that we could want. The house is comfortable with all modern amenities, whilst keeping it's true Mallorcian charm. Exactly as described! Fornalutx has plenty of restaurants and cafes, so walking out to eat, whilst taking in the gorgeous view is something none of us could tire of!
This is just a wonderful house. Very cosy and very secluded. Placed in the most beautiful village, with easy access to restaurants and shopping. The house has many good facilities, and the little pool worked perfectly. We really enjoyed or stay and would very much like to come back some day. We have recommended this house to our friends and family.

The village of Fornalutx - voted prettiest village in Spain - nestles on the slopes of the Puig Mayor mountain in the beautiful Soller Valley. Stunning mountain views, great hiking, and all summer activities within 15 minutes. There is excellent diving and snorkelling along the unspoilt coastline of the Tramuntana Mountains. There are many great restaurants in the port and a marina with boat hire available.
The town of Soller, 2kms down the road, is absolutely charming with a tram snaking its way through the main square to the Port of Soller. There is a wonderful Saturday morning market as well as a covered fish and produce market. There is also a classic small gauge train which runs through the mountains to Palma 4 times a day.
