In the Heart of Village Life

  • 5 of 5

Carmen's property in Fornalutx is ideally situated for those who want to have the experience of living in a community as well as enjoying a beautifully maintained and comfortable home. Walk out the front door and you are in the center of village life. Morning coffee, a delicious pastry from the local bakery, a seat at the village bar with lively conversation with friendly and welcoming local residents, a well provisioned market, and restaurants become a part of your daily life. Day trips around Mallorca are easy to accomplish and their is a pleasant hike through ancient olive groves to the nearby city of Soller. Carmen has created a home for those who want to genuinely experience daily life in a village in Fornalutx but venture beyond. We are already planning our next next stay at this delightful village home.

Great place to be for hikers and bikers

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed the stay a lot. It is a really charming house in the center of a lovely village in the Tramuntana Mountains, just "a step" from Palma away.

It provides everything you need for a holiday: enough space for up to 4 people (should be family members or very close friends since there are two bedrooms on two different floors just divided by the steps; one bathroom in one of the bedrooms), beautifully renovated, very clean and with a comfortable kitchen. The self-service supermarket is just over the "plaza" and you are in the heart of the village - either with contact to the people living there or not. We will come back as soon as it is possible for us. Thank you again, Carmen, for staying at your house!

Comfortable accomodation in Tramuntana Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Reading the description of "Schön renoviertes Haus mitten in der Altstadt von Fornalutx" we -- 4 persons aged 23-32 -- were a bit sceptical as to whether the flat could keep what it promised. But we found quickly that it did just that:

- most beautiful village of Spain - check

- 6 floors including roof terrace with gorgeous mountain view - check

- fully equipped, modern kitchen and tasteful interior design - check

- close to the best hikes (and climbs) on Mallorca - check

- a working wireless internet connection - check.

What more can I say? You will need a car, unless you are happy exploring the surrounding area on foot & by bike. You should expect some stair climbing, so if you are 60 and over and you intend to bring your parents with you, navigating the flat might be a bit challenging. Also, if one person is snoring really loudly, there is a chance that the remaining three persons will hear it because there is no door between the floors. But apart from these worst case scenarios I wouldn't know any reason to complain (and we Germans are world champions in finding reasons to complain!).

More random points:

- Carmen and the local person showing us the flat were both friendly, profesional, and fluent in English.

- There is a bar just opposite the house where the locals watch football games, so if that's the kind of evening entertainment you like, go for it.

- Free parking is about 150 m from the flat.

- A must do: Use the automatic orange squeezer and have a glass of freshly pressed orange juice every morning with breakfast while sitting on the terrace. Instant relaxation promised!

To sum up, then, I can recommend this flat to everyone who is reasonably fit, likes some comfort but doesn't have much money, wants to seriously relax and see Mallorca's most beautiful spots, and does not intend to spend his vacation lying at the beach. (You'll have to drive maybe 45 minutes for the nearest beautiful beach. Port Soller (30 mins away) has a beach, but it's not a pretty one.)

Fornalutx is located on the North Coast of Mallorca, 3 Km. North of Soller and 5 Km from Port of Soller. It is a picturesque Mediterranean mountain village with authentic local, traditional life. Stone houses, cobblestone streets, and unbelievable views, since it is surrounded by pine and oak trees, and orange and olive terraces. It is protected by the Spanish National Patrimony for its unique historic, architectural, and natural value. About 500 inhabitants, quiet but not isolated. This area of the island is not crowded with too many tourists because there aren't large hotels. Nature lovers, artists, and serious bikers and hikers prefer to visit this area in small groups or with families. Palma's airport is only 35 minutes away.

Other Activities: Town festivals, beautiful architecture, natural park, sightseeing
