About the property

Charmingly refurbished ancient millers house in award winning mountain village

El Molinero which means the 'miller's house' is an ideal holiday home all year around in the small and picturesque village of Fornalutx on the North West Coast of Mallorca. Parts of the house are a couple of hundred years old. An extension was added by the previous owner, a famous Scottish Architect and in 2000 the current owner did a major refurbishment adding both pratical and luxurious features. Now the house has 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms (two en-suite) with all modern facilities, charm, a large roof terrace (like a summer dining/living room) with a Barbecue and divine views over the roof tops of the village, the mountain range Tramuntana and the Soller 'orange' valley. There is a small balcony with views over a garden with orange trees and the mountain range. Further a modern and very practical kitchen with all possible kitchen facilities, a dining room with a table that seats 8 people and a living room with comfortable sofa's and easy chairs in front of the fireplace.

Beautiful village house in Fornalutx: 'El Molinero' is the house where the Miller of the village lived and our other house next door is the actual mill 5603 which has been refurbished and reformed to a 2 bedroom house with a small garden.The house is in the middle of the village but on a quiet street with no cars. You can however drive down to the house to leave luggage or heavy shopping but it is a narrow one way street so you cannot park for long. The whole area is very charming with the village 'washing' place (where women still today does their laundry in the cold water coming from the mountain stream), the beautiful Town Hall and the small streets and stairs leading up and down to the various houses scattered over the terraced land. It is a minute away from the Plaza (the village square) with its bars, cafes, restaurants, banks and a few shops. This is where everybody meets from early morning coffee to late night drinks and entertainment.If you are a bigger family or a group of friends it is suitable to rent both.

Excellent location and stay

  • 5 of 5

Location is fantastic. Right in the midst of Fornalutx. Joining the locals in the town square was great fun. Property itself is unique in layout, which only added to the fun. Two teenagers and three adults. Just right for us. No pool on property, and during our time of year would not want (not warm enough), but had we wanted a pool we would have gone down to the tennis and paddle club close nearby.

So much more..

  • 5 of 5

We - two adults, two teenagers - stayed in this gorgeous place for a week in July 2014 and loved every minute! Can only agree with previous reviews - this place is outstanding. And even better than the photos. We we so comfortable here - a rare combination of a classy hotel feel combined with a down-to-earth and please feel at home atmosphere. Tastefully decorated, true to original atmosphere and location. VERY spacious. I wanted to take the kitchen home with me - nothing missing here. Several times I pictured myself cooking for guests whilst enjoying a glass of cava over the counter and then dining on the terrace with the most spectacular view. All in all - top knotch and hope to be back.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at 'El Molinero' for a week and cannot recommend it highly enough. The property was simply beautiful, as is the village. It contained absolutely everything you could possibly need – from pots and pans to sun loungers. The property was immaculately clean and Susie (the property contact in the village) was just delightful. As was Marie, the owner. I was actually concerned about the location - having never been to Fornalutx – but it was brilliantly placed just ten minutes from both Soller Town and the Port (and it was far more relaxing than either location). We had such a wonderful break and hope to return to 'El Molinero' very soon indeed! Rebecca, St Albans

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca, Just a little note to say thank you for your kind words about my property, about Suzy (she will be delighted) and myself. So few people take their time to actually write something which means so much to us, to know that we are doing it right. Thanks again and hope to see you soon again. Marie
