About Lizette

We've lived in some beautiful and interesting locations (Cape Town, Copenhagen, The Hague & Dubai), travelled the world extensively and have, unsurprisingly, lost our hearts to Fornalutx and the surrounding areas and now escape there whenever we can.

the property was beautiful, everything had been thought of

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately our holiday was blighted by mosquitoes. They were ferocious and within a very short time we were all covered with hideous red weeping itchy lumps. We tried everything, there were already bottles of spray and citronella candles in the house, they seemed immune to this. It was impossible to sit outside as they persisted both day and night. The variety are Tiger Mosquitos, things definitely weren't helped by the stagnant pools of water in the valley and the uncovered water tanks (which are due to get sealed). It was such a pity as the setting and house are idyllic.

A fantastic house in Fornalutx.

  • 5 of 5

Sa Cova is just perfect! Breathtaking views of the mountains from almost every room and from the terrace and swimming pool. The bed was so comfortable - we had the best sleep with no traffic noise to disturb us.

The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. We used the juicer every morning to make orange juice from the lovely local oranges.

Sa Cova is a short walk to the town square with its well stocked supermarket, two bars and a restaurant. On the road down to the square are several other restaurants all definitely worth a visit.

The library is a great room to sit and read in and there is a lounge upstairs with incredible mountain views.

Absolutely faultless accommodation. We would love to return!

Fabulous family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sa Cova is as fabulous in real life!

Have just spent a week there as a party of 5 adults, and found it difficult to summon up the desire to explore our beautiful surroundings, as all we needed was at Sa Cova.

The facilities are first class, from the linen on the oh so comfortable king size beds, the well equipped kitchen with beautiful China and glasses, to the salt water pool where many happy hours were spent as 30 degrees plus temperatures every day!

We BBQ'd most evenings watching the sun set in the valley, and enjoying a chilled glass of wine or beer, then sat around til the early hours playing scrabble or card games.

A truly memorable holiday,

Thank you SA Cova.

Fantastic house in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, traditional spanish house but with all the modern touches. Perfect location on edge of gorgeous village. Loved walking 5 minutes to the little square and bakery. Lovely restaurants with great views 2 minutes walk away. Woke to the sound of birdsong every morning, very quiet and peaceful.
