About the property

Sa Cova

A beautifully-restored country house with a saltwater pool and terraced orchard, perfectly positioned at the top of Fornalutx to provide rural bliss - 5 minutes' walk to restaurants, bakery and the picturesque village square.

Step into a welcoming entrada with comfortable seating, market baskets, sun hats and a few traditional Mallorcan features. This leads into the library with a wonderful collection of books, soft linen sofas to sink into and a Jøtul wood-burning stove for cosy winters.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything needed to create holiday feasts and includes a dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, citrus juicer and Sonos music system. There is an open fireplace for cooler months. The laundry leads off the kitchen and has a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

From the entrada, a staircase leads to the first floor, where bedrooms 1 and 2 are located. Bedroom 2 has its own sitting area, perfect for soaking up the views and finding peace and quiet. There is a shared bathroom between these two bedrooms.

Bedroom 3 occupies the entire second floor and has an en-suite bathroom and private balcony.

The casita (bedroom 4) is situated next to the main house and has an en-suite bathroom and private entrance.

Beautiful views, from every window and balcony, of the spectacular Tramuntana. Comfortable king size beds with fine Egyptian cotton linen and air conditioning in all four bedrooms. For cooler months there is central heating.

High-speed wifi in the house, casita and on the terrace.

Enjoy the gentle sound of birds and sheep collar bells tinkling on the surrounding terraces while dining on the terrace next to the pool. A Weber BBQ is available.

The views of the valley and Tramuntana can all be appreciated from the 8m long saltwater pool. The pool is not heated and can be lit at night.

The terraced orchard produces oranges, lemons, mandarin oranges, figs, pomegranates, dates, walnuts and avocados, seasonally.

One of the most beautiful places on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all. Fornalutx and Sa Cova are beyond beautiful. The villa is in the best location near town within walking distance to the center and a variety of restaurants. The beds are super comfortable with a gorgeous view from each bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything one needs to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. We ate breakfast outside each morning enjoying the sounds of birds, sheep and goats. Although it was too cold to use the pool we lounged on the sun drenched terrace enjoying a glass of Mallorcan wine. Even though there is so much to do on the island we did not want to leave Sa Cova. Our evenings were spent reading and playing games by the fire.

The owner was wonderful with communication while responding promptly to any questions we had.

This is truly a special property, look no further. If your dates are available book them at Sa Cova. We can't wait to return!

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.
