Why Joseph chose Fornalutx
Very quite, the street is pedestrian only. Parking is less than 2 mins away. It´s an old 16th century stone town house that stays cool in the summer. Very close to the bars, shops and restaurants in the village but it´s location means its very quite. The beach is less than a 10 minute drive in Port of Soller. Soller is only a half hour walk where you can take the tram to the beach. There is also a bus that will take you to Soller, if you don´t want to hire a car.
What makes this house unique
My mother still lives is the village she grew up in as will help in any way possible to make your stay the best it can be.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a very nice time in your beautiful house. We liked the arrangement of the house - all the old tools and others things. We found the house well-maintained and clean. Your service to us has been very good. We would surely recommend the house to family and friends (as you know we have already done).
The village is lovely with a nice square and a good supermercado. The location is good for a lot of activities as walking in the mountains and swimming in Port de Soller.
We will hopefully be back some time.
