About The Owner

We both work full-time and were looking for a haven to relax in whilst offering a wide range of restaurants, a beach and shops close enough to enjoy too. There are two terraces, front and back, as part of the apartment which have spectacular views, ideal to sit and relax whilst looking down the valley into Fornalutx surrounded by orange and lemon groves. The apartment is a new build and has been fitted out to the highest standard, including Sky television, DVDs, MP3 or iPod docking, everything to compliment your stay.

The locals are extremely friendly and there are festivals at which you can enjoy the local culture.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Deia - Soller Region

We chose this property for its breathtaking views of Fornalutx and the surrounding Tramuntana mountain range. The village is stunning and so tranquil, although it still has all the facilities that we were looking for, restaurants, cafes and shops, it has won the prettiest European village for the past 5 years. The bustling town of Soller and the port are close providing a greater range of shops, bars and restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

Most of all we love the spectacular views of the valley of Soller and the views of the Tramuntana mountains from the front and rear terraces. The tranquility and beauty of the area is something that we look forward to when we are both working full time. The night sky would make Patrick Moore very jealous, just look up and see the stars twinkling in the night sky.

We have everything we need and more in our apartment, it is home from home. We spent a lot of money providing luxury fittings in the apartment and a gorgeous well equipped kitchen so that we can enjoy the local produce of fish, meats, fruit and vegetables, it makes cooking an absolute joy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic place in a stunning location dream holiday home we all wished we owned. From the moment you park the hire car in the garage you know it's going to be great. It is so spacious, not least because of the two huge suntrap terraces. Modern, comfortable, light, airy and quiet. This is no budget holiday home, with dodgy cheap furniture!! In fact, quite the opposite, this is a "home from home" - John Lewis, Next and M&S; all come to mind. Fornalutx is stunning - the views from the terraces are breath-taking, when you open the shutter, the sun pours through the doors, you think wow, I want to stay here forever! The location couldn't be better in Fornalutx, everything within easy walking distance, seconds from the best restaurants and an easy 3 minute walk to the beautiful village square. The owners couldn't be more professional and helpful it's the stuff dreams are made of. This home is just about one of the most perfect locations possible.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: "A fantastic apartment in a stunning location"This is the dream holiday home we all wished we owned on the beautiful island of Mallorca. From the moment you park the hire car in the garage (complete with automatic door!) you know it's going to be great. It is so spacious that it feels s more like a house, not least because of the two huge suntrap balconies/terraces. You'll never feel claustrophobic i.e. the need to escape out of the apartment into the fresh air.Modern, comfortable, light, airy and quiet are all words I would use to describe this apartment. This is no budget holiday home, with dodgy cheap furniture!! In fact, quite the opposite, this is a "home from home" - John Lewis, Next and M&S; all come to mind. The village of Fornalutx is absolutely stunning - think of a beautiful Cotswold village, but in the sun! The views from this apartment are breath-taking, every morning when you open the shutters and the sun pours through the doors, you just think wow! Outside: There are two large terraces with spectacular views of the Tramantana mountains. There is an outdoor dining set and four sun loungers. Utility Room: Washing machine and tumble dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Luxury linens including bath sheets, hand & beach towels are available to hire at a charge of 15 euros pp, end of stay cleaning of 50 euros is payable on departure. Air-conditioning/heating is available upon request. Sunday changeover supplement applies Other: Two large terraces with beautiful outdoor dining furniture to the front plus four sun loungers. There is secure underground parking with direct access to the apartment.

perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and maintained property offering a great base for our stay in this beautiful village and surrounding area. Comfortable beds, good quality furnishings and lots of useful things like picnic ware, chiller bag etc. The location in the village is good, away from the noise of the village square but easily walkable. The village and local areas provide more than enough bars and restaurants, beautiful scenery, good beach and all in a very tranquil situation, whilst still only being a thirty/forty minute drive from Palma. This beautiful part of Majorca is a favourite of ours and we hope to be back again soon. We would recommend this property without hesitation.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well appointed with two lovely terraces that allow you to capture the sun at any time or shade if you need it. It is nice and cool inside because of the shutters but I think in peak summer you will need the air con on. The views are simply wonderful and if you like walking as we do there are some fantastic walks in the Valleys, villages and Mountains that surround the area. Fornalutx itself is an award winning village famed for its beauty. Although, small it has plenty of eating and drinking options. We didn't feel the need to head into Soller on an evening. As the kitchen is also well equipped we took advantage of the local produce and cooked in often and eat on the terrace taking in the wonderful views as the sun went down. All in all a wonderful apartment and great place to stay especially if you love the outdoors and culture.

Perfect flat in the mountain!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the flat: it is bright, spacious for four people, very well furnished, and quiet. The two terraces are just perfect: a big one to share meals, and a small one for coffea/ tea and sunset... Beds are very comfortable, and the shower quite big!

The location is really good too: 7min walk to the village of Fornalutx, where you can buy bread but also with a small supermarket, and 15 min drive to Soller village where there is everything you need....bonus: 15 min drive to the beach of puerto soller: a must do after a day hiking in the mountain!

A small flaw would be to obtain the key from the flat: indications given were no longer correct, had to call the owner (hopefully we had her phone number and she responded very quickly and with results), and then the key box did not work so had to wait an hour for someone to bring us spare key...not a relaxing start of holiday..again hopefully by end of the day everything was fixed. So best to check with the owner all the information before arriving!

Rated five stars anyway as flat was awesome. Would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Hi Celine Many thanks for your lovely review. Again many apologies for the keys, it would appear that the previous people jammed them into the box, breaking it in the process. We have now installed a bigger one which should do the trick. I am so glad that it didn't ruin your holiday. I hope that we can welcome you again some day. Best wishes Sue

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful - we couldn't recommend it more highly. Sue, the owner, is very warm, helpful and efficient.

Communication with both Sue & Crina who looks after the apartment locally was excellent.

The apartment is stylishly furnished, spotlessly clean and very well equipped - it is obviously a much loved home from home. The photos are accurate but don't quite do justice to the views!

The 2 terraces both have stunning views with sun at the front in the morning & at the back in the afternoon - perfect for long lazy breakfasts & lunches, late afternoon sun-bathing and sundowners!

We found both terraces very peaceful.

The apartment is a fairly flat 5 minute walk into the centre of the village and having a garage below the apartment was a bonus.

We were in Fornalutx for a hiking holiday. We were lucky to have mostly warm sunny days but it was unusually cold at night. We requested the optional heating at the last minute - this worked brilliantly and we felt cozy & very comfortable.

We strongly recommend this apartment & could not have wished for a more helpful or accommodating host - thank you!

Great location beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Fornalutx and our second stay in this apartment. Fornalutx is a beautiful village and a great location for walking in the Serra Tramuntana mountains.

The apartment is extremely well equipped, clean and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen has a comprehensive set of cooking utensils and crockery as well as a good sized oven and hob. The two balconies are very appealing, allowing the sun and views of the mountains or village to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

The apartment is a far enough away from the village to be quiet and peaceful but only a five minute stroll to the shop and bakers in the centre of the village.

Sue and Sari are very helpful and make the holiday very relaxing.
