Fornalutx House Rental Photos and Description

Townhouse in Fornalutx, North West Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Lovingly renovated in 2014, La Casa Dos is a luxurious, honey coloured stone townhouse, providing a unique blend of rural charm and contemporary living. Offering the perks of a boutique hotel with the privacy and independence of a home away from home, this beautiful retreat makes the perfect romantic break or honeymoon hideaway. Nestling in the heart of Serra de Tramuntana, La Casa Dos is tucked away in a tranquil location yet is only a 2 minute walk from the Plaza, restaurants and shops of idyllic Fornalutx. Set over 3 floors, La Casa Dos is straight from the pages of a glossy magazine. Finished to an exacting standard by local craftsmen, it is beautifully complemented by sumptuous furnishings. From the stunning ground floor kitchen and entrada, to the light-filled lounge and private, sunny terrace on the top floor, La Casa Dos is an oasis of cool chic and once here you won't want to leave.

Beautiful - we loved it

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house and Lorraine has faultless taste. It's position is amazing, you are tucked away in the prettiest spot and yet can be in the main square in literally two minutes. Lorraine really couldn't have been more helpful, before and during our stay. Our favourite restaurant was Ca N'Antuna, lovely food and people. There is a fabulous hairdressers in the village opposite the bus stop to Soller. Marcos the owner is such a nice person and so talented. I also had a great manicure, pedicure and reflexology session there with Penelope. The weather was incredible while we were there and we went out very early in the mornings to walk and explore while it was cool. There are some great walks around the village and it only takes about 45 mins to walk to Soller. So all in all, the fabulous reviews are very well deserved and we wished we had booked for longer.

Beautiful House in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at La Casa Dos and would recommend it to anyone looking for a stylish retreat in this unspoilt part of Mallorca. The owners were fantastic to deal with from start to finish and we cannot wait to visit again.

Absolutely stunning - you will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned (July 2016) from a week's holiday at La Casa Dos and we absolutely loved it! It is a beautiful, unique and stylish property set in an idyllic, picturesque village. It has all the comforts of a modern home combined with the charm of an earlier era. It is spotlessly clean, with lots of little personal touches that make you feel truly welcome. The owner, Lorraine, was exceptionally helpful, responding to emails quickly and providing lots of useful tips and information. For a small village, there were a surprising number of local restaurants catering for all tastes. Our personal favourite was the Es Turo restaurant, which provided a wide ranging menu, with a fast and friendly service, and reasonable prices ...... all against a backdrop of the breathtaking mountain scenery. A local bakery and convenience store provide everything else you could possibly need ... and they are just a 2 minute walk away. If you're looking for something special, look no further than La Casa Dos ..... you will not be disappointed.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a picture perfect village. Having visited Fornalutx before we didn't think we could better our previous visit - we were wrong! La Casa Dos is one of the best holiday homes we have ever stayed in. It is simply but beautifully decorated and has everything you need and more and the little extra touches Lorraine provides makes it extra special.

Paradise found (again)

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Mallorca, Fornalutx and La Casa Dos for the first time last year, since then we have been counting the days to our return. We knew we had discovered somewhere truly special on our first visit and Lorraine and Stuart's beautiful casa and the Soller Valley only gets better the more time you spend there. We travel extensivley and it is rare to find somewhere which combines both home comforts and such beautiful (yet functional) interior design, not to mention many unexpected little luxuries. The house together with mountain and village life is the perfect combination for some truly relaxing time out. Lorraine is a wonderful host and her advice, suggestions and attention to detail made our stay very special indeed. Who knew you could improve upon perfection - thank you for a second fabulous holiday Lorraine. Hasta la proximal vez!

A special oasis

  • 5 of 5

We are remembering our vacation in La Casa Dos with a warm feeling in our hearts. This was our first visit to Majorca and we were absolutely enchanted. The diversity of the landscapes and cultures impressed us. Fornalutx and Lorraine's La Casa Dos is a special oasis. Listening to the song of the birds on the charming terrace was one of our favourites. We can warmly recommend Lorraine and La Casa Dos.

Coast/Beach:

It's about a 10 minute drive to the lovely beach at Port Soller. The Port's great for a stroll along the promenade or to sit back in one of the many cafes and restaurants and soak up the pretty views. You can also take a boat cruise to beautiful Sa Calobra or hop on a tram to Soller.

Distances:

40 minute drive from Palma airport

5 minute drive to Soller

10 minute drive to Port Soller

Further Details:

With Mallorca's highest mountain, Puig Major, as a stunning backdrop, it's easy to see why Fornalutx has won many accolades, including Prettiest Village in Spain.

Fornalutx is an ancient Moorish village, straight out of a movie set. Nestling in the upper Soller valley, it's overlooked by charismatic fincas and terraced olive, orange and lemon groves. It's location, in the Serra de Tramuntana, makes it a perfect location for cycling and walking, but for those looking for a more relaxing escape, peace and solitude are never far away. At its centre is the Placa d'Espanya, the hub of the village, where locals and tourists naturally congregate to meet friends and soak up the ambience from early morning to the wee small hours.

The village has a really good choice of restaurants and cafes, a great bakery (perfect for the breakfast croissant!), a convenience store, chemist, hairdressers and banks.

There really isn't anything not to love!
