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.

The above picture was taken my first visit to see my grand parents who are from the village. My great grand mother is to the right of grand father.

Joseph has over 25 years of experience in the film and television industry working on projects that include 24, Terra Nova, The Shawshank Redemption, Dracula, Hook and The Big Tease.

Joseph worked as set designer on Steven Speilbergs fantasy adventure Hook (1991), Francis Ford Coppola’s horror film Dracula (1992), the action comedy Maverick (1994), the action thriller True Lies (1994), the drama The Shawshank Redemption (1994), the thriller Disclosure (1994), the science fiction film Tank Girl (1995, starring Lori Petty and Malcolm McDowell), the drama Apollo 13 (1995), the television science fiction series Space: Above and Beyond (1995-1996), and the video game Need for Speed: Undercover (2008) on which he also worked as director.

Between 2001 and 2009 he also worked as production designer and second unit director on the drama series 24 and joined the production crew between 2006 and 2009 as co-producer. He held the same positions on the television mini series 24: Day Six - Debrief (2007) and the following movie 24: Redemption (2008). In addition, he was interviewed for several special features and directed three episodes of 24. In 2004 and 2007 he received Excellence in Production Design Award nominations from the Art Directors Guild for his work on 24.

Born in 1963 to a Mallorcan mother and English father, divides his time between Los Angeles and Mallorca and where ever else his work takes him.

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.

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.

Dear Joseph,

We had a wonderful time in Fornalutx and liked your house very much. It has a very quiet, grounded atmosphere which helped us to reduce stress and find relaxation. I also liked the style inside, very simple, authentic and tasteful at the same time. Everything we needed was there for a comfortable stay! The village is very nice too, and it was nice to have a place in the center of the village, with the shop and some good restaurants nearby. It felt we were on the right place at the right time: sun and 25 degrees Celsius, beautiful clear skies. We have walked a lot in the mountains and along the coast, but skipped the touristic places. One day in Palma was enough. And also thanks to your mom for her help and friendly attention when needed.

All the best,


Roxanne.

Thank you for the use of your beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for your hospitality, your house was perfect for my families visit to Mallorca. The village is so beautiful and ideally suited as a base to explore the island.
We look forward to returning as soon as possible, perhaps we will try to come for Christmas next time.

Mallorca when it is best (-:

  • 5 of 5
This is simply one of the best holiday me and my family have had.
Living in a nostalgic house from old days with a beautiful terrerce on top.
The area is perfect for walking and there is only 10 minuts to Porto de Soller and a good beach.
The stay was a perfect base for seeing whole Mallorca and most inportant - away from all the turisted palces.
Thanks to Joseph for letting us staying in his wonderful house (-:

Typical majorcan house in beautiful village

  • 4 of 5
Majorca was an excellent discovery for us. The nature is splendid as sea and mountains are pretty close and we enjoyed very nice weather for the season. The house is small but nicely located in a very beautiful village. The house is traditional with very few windows but it suited our needs. We enjoyed the terrace and the beautiful view on the surrounding mountains.
The mother of Joseph welcomed us in a very friendly manner.
We will keep very nice memories of our stay in Majorca!

Tranquil escape to Fornalutx

  • 4 of 5
Perfectly located within the beautiful, tranquil village of Fornalutx
The house was clean, well equipped with a splendid sun terrace overlooking breath taking views of the surrounding mountains.
The owner was warm and welcoming from enquiry to handing back the keys at the end of our stay.
Thoroughly recommended.

Lovely house and stunning location.

  • 4 of 5
The owner made every effort to ensure we had a great holiday when, following a bad accommodation experience, he allowed us to relocate to this lovely house in such a stunning location at short notice. It is absolutely perfect, spacious, in pristine condition and a real home from home. It contained all of the essentials needed for a family holiday and a number of additional thoughtful touches. All of this, in addition to the roof terrace with stunning views of the mountains. We can't wait to go back!
