Why Fam Nicou / www.canfave.com chose Fornalutx

WHY FORNALUTX?

Alexis grandmother moved from Stockholm, Sweden to Mallorca and the village of Fornalutx in 1946. Back then it had no electricity and there where no roads for cars. Every summer since Alexis was 3 years old, thats 1976, he spent 3 month visiting her. Therefor it feels like he have more or less grown up in the narrow alleys of Fornalutx together with his sister, cousins and Majorcan friends. Fornalutx has of course a great place in our hearts. The beautiful surroundings, all nice people that lives in the village, the nearby beaches in Puerto Soller, the unprecedented mountain walks and the fabulous food at the local restaurants. You get addicted to it! /Fam Nicou

Happy vacation in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Fornaluxt is so charming, surrounded by the mountains, such beautiful views! The narrow streets and the little town square, were so nice. The house exceeded our expectations. I thought it maybe would be to small for our big family, but no problem at all. The design of the house is smart and has it´s own warmness and charm. It felt so good. We had a very pleasant and unique. /Anna-Karin with family, Sundsvall, Sweden

Lovely Home in a Magical Setting

  • 5 of 5

Can Fave was a magical setting for our April holiday. Each day we opened our shutters to magnificent views of the Tramantana mountain peaks and drew in the fragrance of orange blossoms which permeated the valley. The house was in a perfect location for a short walk into town for buying groceries, exploring the narrow streets, frequenting the bakery (perhaps a bit too often), going out to dinner or just relaxing in the placa and people watching. We took several longer hiking paths directly from the house into the hills and down to Soller (loved this town). We used the bus stop just up the street for further adventures. We had a car but ended up not using it because we were able to walk or use public transport everywhere. Besides, driving was a bit difficult due to windy narrow roads and an abundance of bicycle traffic. The house had everything we needed and more (including fresh oranges in the garden). Alexis was very attentive and responded quickly to the few questions that came up during our stay. We had a wonderful time at Can Fave and carry home many sweet memories. Note: I fell in love with the Nespresso coffee maker and milk frother. Best coffee ever from a machine!

Amazing house and holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is as beautiful and well designed and maintained as the photos. The view from the garden and the pool is breathtaking. The garden has orange trees, lime trees and fig trees (which we helped ourselves to as the fruit was falling off the branches....I hope that was okay Alexis?).

The village of Fornalutx is lovely and friendly with some great restaurants and bars and a small (but well stocked supermarket) and a bakery where you can order Ensaïmadas.

We were in Mallorca during the heatwave in Europe but the house remained cool and the kids loved the swimming pool. There are plenty of walks around the village and the only thing that stopped us exploring more was the heat.

Thanks to Alexis for making us feel so welcome. It is a very special house. We hope to come back for another visit soon and do some longer walks in the mountains.

Ali, friends and family

One of the best finds ever!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find such a great place in a fantastic location. You do need to know how to drive though, if you have rented a car and plan to explore on your own. Probably not a big deal if you are use to European driving, but much more challenging (and fun) than American roads!

FORNALUTX

The municipal town of Fornalutx sits deep in the heart of the Sierra Tramuntana mountain range, approximately 40km or 25 miles, north-west of the capital Palma, and the Son Sant Joan International Airport.

Fornalutx, in the hills above Soller, calls itself the prettiest village in Spain and it is hard to disagree, unless you accept the claims of its neighbour Biniaraix.

It is a quiet little place at the top of the Soller valley and has wonderful mountain views. A number of walking trails are easily accessible from Fornalutx, making it a top spot for hikers and bikers.

There’s little local shop but for more substantial shopping, you’ll need to pop down the road to Soller, two kilometres away. It’s an easy walk down along charming lanes and through pretty citrus groves.

There are a number of terrace restaurants and bars where you can sit back and soak in the views of olive and orange groves climbing ever higher until they reach the pine-clad foothills of Puig Major.

Sights & Attractions in Fornalutx

Head to Soller for some cultural immersion, Fornalutx is more about enjoying Mother Nature!

Things to Do in Fornalutx

Fornalutx is popular with hikers thanks to the variety of well sign posted hikes in the area. The stunning countryside consists of mountains, citrus and olive groves, coastal views and pretty villages – surely a heaven for walkers! Cyclists also use Fornalutx as a base, there is plenty of challenging road cycling and there is possibility of mountain biking too (guide recommended). Horse riding and tennis are also catered for.

The video below is mostly about Sollér but there are several scenes are from Fornalutx.

Rewards

Because of its appearance and enviable state of conservation, over the years Fornalutx has received several different prizes and awards. In 1983 it was awarded a Silver Plaque for the defence and maintenance of the village, by the Majorcan Tourist Board. The same year the Spanish General Secretary for Tourism awarded Fornalutx another prestigious prize for being one of the best preserved villages in the whole of Spain.

History

The history of Fornalutx starts over 1,000 years ago, when it was an Arab property – probably a farmstead. After the Catalan conquest of the island in the 13th Century, the population of the area started to grow and a church, which is still standing today, was completed in 1639. Fornalutx was part of the municipality of Soller until 1837, when it gained its independence.

The charm of Fornalutx lies in just how untouched and untainted it is by the modern world – the contrast with Palma and some of the other more developed areas of the island could not be greater. The stone streets and steps of the old centre are just wonderful, carefully adorned as they are with many pots and plants; the doorways of many of the ancient stone houses are left wide open by the locals – although, today, many of them are now second homes or holiday residences.

As you stroll around, be careful to take a look at the eves of the houses where you can see the famous painted tiles, known as ”Arab tiles”, which date from the period between the 14th and 19th Centuries. These little works of art are drawings in red on the white background of the roof tiles, which sit under the projecting roofs which extend out over the small houses. The drawings portray a jumble of different things – from plants and animals to people and religious imagery. However, the tiles are not simply decorative – they have symbolic meaning and are said to protect the occupants of the house from bad luck.

One of the most notable buildings in the village is the Town Hall, or ”Casa de la Vila”, which includes a defence tower dating from the 17th Century. The aforementioned Parish Church is also another of the village’s outstanding buildings and really should be seen. It has undergone many renovations since its original construction in the Gothic style, and is now perhaps more Baroque in appearance, with a single nave covered by a half-barrel-vault ceiling and lateral chapels.

The entire village is simply a delight, the streets are so winding and narrow that cars are seldom seen and all the houses are fine examples of traditional Majorcan mountain architecture.

As you walk around take a look up the mountains to see the lush vegetation on the mountain terraces and the orchards where the famous oranges are grown, reflecting the agricultural heritage of the area, which dominated the economy up until the latter half of the last Century.
