About the property

Sa Cova is a beautiful 19th century finca with whitewashed walls, beamed ceilings and spectacular views of the Serra de Tramuntana.

The ground floor features a welcoming entrada, cosy library, eat-in kitchen, guest loo 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 and the Serra de Tramuntana (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) set to the idyllic sounds of sheep collar bells tinkling, roosters crowing and the odd donkey braying. Stone steps lead to a terraced orchard where oranges, lemons, figs, dates, avocados, walnuts and pomegranates can be picked seasonally.

Sa Cova’s 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 (main bedroom) occupies the entire 2nd floor and is en-suite. Bedroom 4 (separate casita / guest cottage) has an en-suite bathroom and 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 heat the finca and casita in winter.

Sa Cova is situated at the top end of Fornalutx, close to a number of well-known Mallorcan restaurants. It’s a 5 minute walk to a beautiful boutique and the picturesque village square, with its great bakery, small grocery store, ATM, chemist, hairdresser and a few more bars and restaurants.

The bustling Saturday morning market in Sóller and the beach in Port de Sóller are 10 minutes away whilst Palma is only 40 minutes away. We recommend hiring a small car - we have off-street parking for one vehicle.

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.

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!

We can highly recommend Sa Cova .

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 .
