About Neil and Julie

We came to Fornalutx on holiday for seven years after buying a house in the village. We loved it so much we moved here permanently in 2013 and bought another house to renovate and live in. We now share our home by way of having created two self-contained apartments within it.

Neil and Julie purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Neil and Julie chose Deia - Soller Region

This property is part of our house and we fell in love with its location: it is in a quiet part of the village with views of the mountains and overlooking orange groves but yet is still so close to the village amenities. It is easy to get to by car or on foot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect place! We enjoyed 6 wonderful, relaxing days in the beautiful mountain village Fornalutx. Julie and Neil´s house is not only located in one of the nicest old villages in Mallorca, but indeed also very romantic, quiet, nicely and fully furnished and very clean - and if you do not only want to enjoy the great view on the neighbour´s orange grove and the mountains from your own terrace, cook, watch DVDs provided by Neil and Julie: the hiking path starts right in front of the door to explore the beautiful landscape... Julie and Neil are great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. A total superplus for this perfect, perfect hideaway! Anytime again!

Beautiful location, great for walking.

  • 4 of 5

Pretty apartment, very quirky. Great location for walking/cycling. Plenty of nice restaurants in the village. One small problem at the apartment was the shower curtain, every time you tried to wash it would cling to you..not ideal, but very minor. Overall, would definitely go back to the area and apartment. Lovely break.

Beautiful old Finca in a quiet corner of the village.

  • 3 of 5

Tastefully decorated and with some original features and a beautiful little courtyard garden overlooking the orange grove, the property is ideal for two people.

Neil the kind owner of this property was there with friendly advice for our stay in the beautiful village of Fornalutx which was surrounded by orange and lemon groves and where the air smelled constantly of orange blossom. A thoughtful welcome pack was also appreciated.

Situated in a quiet corner of the village but within minutes walking distance to all the village has to offer.

Owner's Response: The property is set in a quiet yet convenient part of the village and you are right the air often smells of orange blossom at this time of year. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Very pretty

  • 3 of 5

It was a very pretty apartment and a beautiful village...

But a bit spoilt by the noise from the upstairs apartment .. Very noisy could hear everything..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you found the apartment and village pretty. I am sorry though that your stay was somewhat marred by the noise from guests above. We do ask guests to be considerate to fellow guests during their stay but unfortunately I think the guests staying at that time were younger than our norm. Hope it didn't spoil your holiday. Kind regards, Neil & Julie

Wonderful accommodation and very relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We cannot fault this property or the hosts. This accommodation, which is in a very quiet location, is beautifully presented, very clean, well equipped and accurately described on the website. We were met by the owners when we arrived who assisted with our cases and parking, if parking is not available outside the property then the free town car parks are literally only a few minutes walk away. The owners have an excellent knowledge of both the local area and Mallorca and the directions they had sent us for getting to the property from Palma airport were easy to follow. There was a bottle of wine, tea, coffee, butter, milk and enough oranges for fresh juice for the morning waiting for us on arrival. There are a couple of shops in the village and we could not find fault with any of the restaurants or bars in the village. It was wonderful to walk to the shop in the morning for fresh baguettes and locally grown oranges for freshly squeezed juice for breakfast. We plan to return and would whole heartedly recommend this property and Fornalutx to anybody. I am 1.83m tall and did not have any issue with door heights other than having to duck and there was plenty of room for the two of us. Perfect accommodation and a stunning location for a totally relaxing break thoroughly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alan and Julie for such a glowing review. It was a pleasure to have you stay and we hope to welcome you back in the near future. Our chat has inspired us to go on a balloon flight here in Mallorca!
