About Neil and Julie

We are a family originally from N.Ireland but lived in England for the last 10 years. We came to Fornalutx on holiday about 10 years ago and immediately fell in love with the village and the whole area. We purchased this property and holidayed here for the last 6 years but always had the desire to make Fornalutx our home. Since April 2013 after buying another house in the village we have been lucky enough to make our dream a reality.

Neil and Julie purchased this house in 2007

Why Neil and Julie chose Deia - Soller Region

We bought this house because it is so central in the village. It is only a few steps from the picturesque placa with its' bars and restaurants yet very peaceful as it is located in a pedestrianised old cobbled street. All the major renovation work had been carried out to a very high standard by the previous owners and the views from the roof terrace are stunning. The original features that have been retained and the quality materials used in the kitchen and bathrooms made it the only choice.

What makes this house unique

These can be summed up in simple terms: location, quality and comfort. With the added benefits of WIFI, satellite tv, aircon, heating, a summer kitchen on the roof terrace and quality furniture and furnishings it is not surprising we have guests who return year after year. To put it another way, staying here is rehab for the soul!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all thoroughly enjoyed staying in your lovely townhouse, it was a superb place to spend new year. We felt the details and photos on Owners Direct were a true representation of the townhouse, so no hidden shocks! It was also lovely and warm in the house. All in all a fantastic place.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in May 2009, and found the property to be of a very high standard, so close to the square and supermarket, furnished very 'french' style, just as I like, sky tv, loads of space, in very beautiful surroundings

Stylish House in Fornalutx

  • 4 of 5

The house was charming, beautifully appointed and exactly as described. Kitchen could have been cleaner though, but a minor gripe. The owner was very attentive and even dropped by to say hello, which was lovely. I would not hesitate to recommend this property. However, not much chance of a relaxing lie in or peaceful breakfast on the roof terrace as serious building work going on in adjoining properties each and every day - I would check this out before booking again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that your stay was somewhat marred by nearby building work. Normally builders stop in August but this mustn't have been the case. Unfortunately, when properties are in towns or villages it is inevitable that some works may occur which is beyond our control but nonetheless we don't like it to affect our guests relaxation. I hope that if you decide to return in the future we can make it up to you. Kind regards, Neil & Julie

Charming Authentic Townhouse in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 2 weeks in this 3 storey house very close to the centre of Fornalutx. It was a perfect location for a bit of rural Spain in a beautiful Village with easy access to Port De Soller (10 mins drive) which has a wonderful beach, beautiful Marina and great shops restaurants. Soller is also close (5 mins) and has a wonderful Church and square, very spanish and very charming.

However, we often cooked on the roof terrace which though not huge is plenty big enough with valley views. Lovely dinners and breakfasts. The house has been maintained and decorated with lovely taste and in a spanish style. Can't fault the place, we had a wonderful time there. Sometimes we just sat in Fornalutx Square and watched the world go by. The back drop of mountains is also a marvellous sight and the town itself has some wonderful restaurants and bars. There is much to do in Mallorca but we took it easy because the location was so good.

The listing is very accurate, the property was clean, customer service was great (really nice people). Would definitely recommend this for a holiday, either as a couple or with kids. Thanks Julie & Neil

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this perfectly located and beautiful, traditional Mallorcan town house. The house is literally off the market square where you can spend many a happy hour, sipping a glass of wine and watching village life. Superbly located for local walks and visits to Soller, Port Soller, Deia, Cuber Reservoir and easy access to roads taking you further afield. The house is perfect for our needs - comfortable, well-presented bedrooms and living room, 2 good bathrooms but best of all, the roof terrace with superb views. Fornalutx is unspoilt, welcoming and in a stunning location. Great restaurants from traditional (Es Turo) to fine dining (la Cuina D'en Marc) to the best pizzas we've ever tasted (Calzone Pizzeria). Many more and all good! We're already planning to return next year.

Fornalutx is a beautiful mountain village surrounded by well signposted mountain walks to suit all abilities. We can recommend a guide if required. Cycle hire is available in nearby Soller 3km away. Segway hire is available at the Port de Soller. There is access to a pool in one of the village hotels for a small charge. A very good municipal pool is at the Paddle and Tennis club with clay courts found on the outskirts of Soller. The nearest sandy beach is Platja d'en Repic at the south end of Port de Soller - a beautiful bay lined with good restaurants, boutique hotels, marina and a good variety of shops. Daily boat trips and water sports from here. The village itself has tennis court, table tennis, basketball and children's playground.

Take the old-fashioned tram from Soller to the port for a day's sunbathing or the antique train from Soller to Palma for a day's shopping/sightseeing. Son Termens golf course is a 20 min drive away. Soller 3km - Saturday market. Deia is 20km. Valldemossa 20km. Pollensa 50km - Sunday market.
