About the property

A beautiful 19th century finca with spectacular views of the Serra de Tramuntana.

Sa Cova's ground floor features a welcoming entrada, cosy library, eat-in kitchen, guest bathroom and laundry area. French doors lead onto the furnished terrace and pool area, offering great views of the surrounding countryside: dry-stone terraces, olive groves, citrus orchards and the Serra de Tramuntana (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Oranges, lemons, figs, dates, avocados, walnuts and pomegranates can be picked seasonally in the terraced orchard.

The four bedrooms are all individually designed and feature comfortable king size beds dressed in crisp, white Egyptian cotton linen. Bedrooms 1 & 2 are situated on the first floor and share a bathroom. Bedroom 3 occupies the entire 2nd floor and has an en-suite bathroom. The casita (guest cottage) is also en-suite and has it’s own private entrance.

Thick stone walls, cool tiled floors and traditional shutters, designed to keep the midday sun out, keep the finca cool in summer. Oil radiators & a Jøtul wood-burning stove in the library heat the finca in winter.

Sa Cova is situated at the top end of the village, a 5 minute walk to a few well-known Mallorcan restaurants, a beautiful boutique and the picturesque village square, with its bakery, grocery store, ATM, chemist, hairdresser and a few more bars and restaurants. It's a 10 minute drive to Sóller and the beach in Port de Sóller, a 20 minute drive to Son Termes Golf Club and a 40 minute drive to Palma de Mallorca. We recommend hiring a small car - we have off-street parking for one vehicle.

Fornalutx is now officially part of the 'Asociación de los Pueblos Más Bonitos de España' (Spain's Most Beautiful Villages Association) and is the only Balearic village to be included so far. It really is beautiful, with it's honey-coloured stone houses, cobblestoned alleys, spectacular views and friendly, welcoming people.

Things to note:

Sa Cova is only suitable for children over 8 years old.

All access to and on the property is via stairs and therefore not suitable for wheelchair access or guests with mobility issues.

No smoking.

Not suitable for pets.

Sa Cova is licensed under the Balearic Tourism Act.

About Lizette

We've lived in Cape Town, Copenhagen and The Hague, travelled the world extensively as a family and lived in Dubai for the last 9 years with our girls and Leo-dog.

Lizette purchased this house in 2016

Why Lizette chose Deia - Soller Region

Fornalutx, and in fact the entire Sóller valley, is paradise and we escape to it as often as we can.

Beautiful house and beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house for holiday for 3 generations. Youngest 21 and oldest 79, all of us loved the house and the surroundings. The house is so beautiful and clean, with good beds, linens, towels, the feeling of a luxurious hotel. Kitchen with all utilities and oranges and lemons in the garden to make juice of for breakfast. The city centre is right down the road with all you need, supermarket, bakery and good restaurants. We could not have had a better vacation. We are coming back, soon:)

Sa Cova Stay

  • 5 of 5

Sa Cova is truly one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL holiday homes I have ever stayed in. The owners have decorated this stunning finca extremely tastefully and has taken the utmost care to provide their guests with high quality amenities and an experience packed with style.

I received a warm welcome by Vero, the caretaker, who had taken the initiative to light one of the cosy fireplaces for my arrival.

The experience was further enhanced by the delicious smell of orange blossoms from the finca's orchard.

I would definitely recommend a stay at Sa Cova for anyone who appreciates the finer touches - at this price it is an absolute steal.

Stunning property in an equally stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sa Cova completely exceeded our expectations on every level. From the moment we stepped down the path when we arrived to see the beautiful pool shimmering in the afternoon sunshine we felt at home. The outside dining area had the most stunning view of the Tramutana mountains and the house itself is elegant, stylish and equipped with everything you could need for a luxurious relaxing holiday in a truly spectacular location. The village of Fornalutx itself out of all the places we visited is by far the most beautiful even than Deia. Food wise special mention must go to Ca N' Antuna a few steps from our property for delicious good value food and Cafe Med for a really memorable birthday dinner worth every penny. We didn't want to leave - we will be back!

Very nice location with a stunning view to the Tramutana mountains.

The interior design is very authentic and very well selected. The kitchen is perfectly equipped even if you have optional a Weber grill on the terrace . Overall the house exceeded all of your expectations and it's a place where you definitely want to come back .
