CHARMING HISTORIC VILLAGE HOUSE (CASITA)

Fornalutx Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, accommodating 2-guests

La Casa Dos (No. 2) is part of an ancient Alquería (farmstead) on the edge of Fornalutx in Calle del Viento - 'the Road of the Wind.' Adjacent to Castille Del Munt, the great house and Keep that stands on the 10th Century fortified farmstead, this is the oldest part of Fornalutx. La Casa Dos has an intimate and protected vista onto the Tramuntana Mountains. This would have been the town house of a smaller farm tithed to Castille del Munt. The house underwent extensive restoration in 1998-99 completely modernising the facility, while retaining the fine exterior stonework and charming antique interior ceramic tile, terracotta, wood beams and antique windows.

A great week in La Casa Dos

Hi Christopher. Just to thank you for a great week in La Casa Dos. We fell in love, like so many before (and after) us, with Fornalutx, and whilst the region is all beautiful, we felt privileged to return to it every evening. We loved the Casita, which was homely and traditional. Thanks again, also for the welcome goodies. We shall return! Viv and Alan, Cambridge

Owner's Response: Thank you Viv and Alan. It is our pleasure to present you with a gift on arrival of wine, water and the local virgin olive oil, pressed from the valley's abundant olive trees. We have a high rate of returning guests and offer a discount to all previous renters.

Beautiful house and surroundings

We found the house La Casa Dos and Fornalutx very beautiful and quiet. The house is very charming, nicely decorated, and everything works really well. Only "complaint" is that the terrasse is too hot in the summertime. But why sit there when there are so beautiful surroundings?

We had a perfect stay with walking on the lovely hiking trails through the valley, cycling through (some of) the beautiful mountains of Las Tramuntanas (tough!!, but wonderful) - and at the end of the stay, when the legs were tired, car trips to other interesting parts of Mallorca.

Owner's Response: Dear Vibeke - thank you for your kind words. We have installed a sun canopy for the terrace and have also re-painted in bright reflective white, but, yes, it is a veritable sun-trap.

La Casa Dos - March 2009

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 14, 2010
  • Stayed: Feb 2010
We booked just 6 days in advance (we were supposed to go to Madeira, but then there were the flash floods), so we hadn't done our usual extensive research and agonising over decisions and were not sure what to expect. We were delighted with the result!

The accommodation was perfect, the directions exemplary. La Casa Dos is a great little house and has pretty much all you need. Fornalutx in March was restful, with few people there, but enough for it to be alive. It's great walking country, or you can just sit in the village square and watch everyone else. Great for relaxing.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thank you, John & Anne - You have summed up the lovely village of Fornalutx perfectly: tranquil, restful, but local enough to make people watching a relaxation! We are thrilled our little house LA CASA DOS worked for you after the trauma of losing your Madeira vacation at short notice. We can always take bookings at the last minute AND give a late booking discount. Just check the on-line calendar.

Fornalutx sits nestled in the most spectacular vale within the Serra de Tramuntana - the valley of Sóller. The village is an oasis of tranquillity, with historic houses built in mellow, caramel-coloured stone, lining cobbled mule steps rising above a charming town plaza. Known as the 'Aldea Mil Años' (Village of a Thousand Years) it commands fabulous views of orange groves and olive terraces climbing high into the backdrop. One can almost experience the spirit of the early settlers. The Venetian traders cutting through the high passes in search of olive oil, the then currency of the Mediterranean. The Roman soldiers milling Saharan wheat in the water mills powered by the valley’s abundant springs. The Moors, with their understanding of all things created in stone, ceramic and terracotta. Fornalutx enjoys a well-deserved reputation as one of the most picturesque villages in Spain & has won several national awards for the loving way in which buildings, streets & amenities are maintained.
