Overview

About the property

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

Sa Cova's ground floor features a spacious entrada, cosy library, eat-in kitchen, guest bathroom and laundry area.

The library’s shelves are stacked with a few guidebooks on local walking trails and cycling routes (in English and German), cookbooks, novels and magazines. There’s a Jøtul wood-burning stove for winter evenings or throw open the French doors to let in the clean mountain air when the weather’s balmy and baking hot.

The eat-in kitchen is well-equipped and the farmhouse-style table and comfortable bistro chairs invite you to linger over lazy meals. A guest bathroom and laundry area leads off the kitchen.

The four bedrooms are all individually designed and feature comfortable king size beds dressed in soft, white Egyptian cotton linen. Bedrooms 1 and 2 are situated on the first floor and share a bathroom. Bedroom 3 occupies the entire 2nd floor and has an en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 4 (the casita) is a separate guest cottage with 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.

The entrada and kitchen lead directly onto the furnished terrace areas, the saltwater pool and outdoor shower. The views of the surrounding countryside are spectacular: 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 our terraced orchard.

Sa Cova is situated at the top end of Fornalutx, within a 5 minute walk to Ca N'Antuna and Es Turo restaurants - both well-known for their hearty food and beautiful views.

This beautifully conserved mountain village may be small but it offers a lovely boutique, bakery, grocery store, ATM, chemist, hairdresser, a few bars, around 7 restaurants and a little ice cream shop selling delicious gelat.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Perfekt bis ins kleinste Detail!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wirklich ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen. Luxus, Ruhe und traumhafte Umgebung auf einer sonst doch teilweise recht vollen Insel. Wir haben die meiste Zeit unseres Urlaubs auf dem Anwesen und den Wanderwegen der Umgebung verbracht und uns wie zuhause gefühlt. Schon im Vorfeld hat sich Lizette besonders herzlich und hilfsbereit um unser Wohl bemüht. Service, Ausstattung und Gestaltung stellen selbst höchste Ansprüche voll zufrieden.

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 .
