'EL MOLINERO', LUXURIOUS GEM, TERRACE WITH STUNNING VIEWS

Fornalutx House Rental Photos and Description

Charmingly refurbished ancient millers house in award winning mountain village

El Molinero which means the 'miller's house' is an ideal holiday home all year around in the small and picturesque village of Fornalutx on the North West Coast of Mallorca. Parts of the house are a couple of hundred years old. An extension was added by the previous owner, a famous Scottish Architect and in 2000 the current owner did a major refurbishment adding both pratical and luxurious features. Now the house has 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms (two en-suite) with all modern facilities, charm, a large roof terrace (like a summer dining/living room) with a Barbecue and divine views over the roof tops of the village, the mountain range Tramuntana and the Soller 'orange' valley. There is a small balcony with views over a garden with orange trees and the mountain range. Further a modern and very practical kitchen with all possible kitchen facilities, a dining room with a table that seats 8 people and a living room with comfortable sofa's and easy chairs in front of the fireplace.

Beautiful village house in Fornalutx: 'El Molinero' is the house where the Miller of the village lived and our other house next door is the actual mill 5603 which has been refurbished and reformed to a 2 bedroom house with a small garden.The house is in the middle of the village but on a quiet street with no cars. You can however drive down to the house to leave luggage or heavy shopping but it is a narrow one way street so you cannot park for long. The whole area is very charming with the village 'washing' place (where women still today does their laundry in the cold water coming from the mountain stream), the beautiful Town Hall and the small streets and stairs leading up and down to the various houses scattered over the terraced land. It is a minute away from the Plaza (the village square) with its bars, cafes, restaurants, banks and a few shops. This is where everybody meets from early morning coffee to late night drinks and entertainment.If you are a bigger family or a group of friends it is suitable to rent both.

Dear Marie,
>
> I just wanted to send you a thank you note as by the time we remembered the guest book it was too late to leave a well constructed message!
>
> We had an absolutely fantastic holiday in your amazing home!!! It is the second time that myself and my new fiance (he proposed at the top of the Puig Major road at sunset!) have visited the Soller area and the first time that my parents (our travelling partners!) had been. We were all bowled over with the stunning terrace, beautful views, Fornalutx, Soller, Daia, Repic Beach, local food, wine and textiles and even the epic lightning storm we experienced during one night!
>
> Fornalutx will always be very special to us for more than the obvious reasons and we are already dreaming of our return!!!
>
> Thank you so much and additional thanks to Alicia for being so helpful.

El Molinero better than the photos

Dear Marie

Thanks for your note following up on our stay. In short, the house was absolutely perfect for us!

We were lucky with the weather and could enjoy going to the beach in the afternoons with the kids. We walked aroudn the area in the mornings and short trips to the nearby towns. Fortunlax is a lovely, picturesque town.

The property was even nicer than pictures you have on the site. It is always hard to capture the atmosphere of a place, but it was cozy but with plenty of space for everyone. The place is beautiful appointed with a lot of thought into how to make it feel relaxing, plenty of candles, flowers and reflection of light. We spent the bulk of our time on the terrace enjoying the fantastic views into the hillside.
Thanks again!

Perfection!

We recently had the pleasure of staying at 'El Molinero' for a week and cannot recommend it highly enough. The property was simply beautiful, as is the village. It contained absolutely everything you could possibly need – from pots and pans to sun loungers. The property was immaculately clean and Susie (the property contact in the village) was just delightful. As was Marie, the owner. I was actually concerned about the location - having never been to Fornalutx – but it was brilliantly placed just ten minutes from both Soller Town and the Port (and it was far more relaxing than either location). We had such a wonderful break and hope to return to 'El Molinero' very soon indeed! Rebecca, St Albans

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca,
Just a little note to say thank you for your kind words about my property, about Suzy (she will be delighted) and myself. So few people take their time to actually write something which means so much to us, to know that we are doing it right. Thanks again and hope to see you soon again. Marie
