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.
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.
