Casa Sol y Montes - Fornalutx, Mallorca

A unique, characterful house set in the heart of Fornalutx, Mallorca - voted in November 2016 as the most beautiful village in the Balearics. This spacious and historic property sleeps up to nine people and offers stunning views of the Tramuntana Mountains, recently recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage area. The beauty and tranquillity of the house and area provides an idyllic haven - but with the advantages of a central location in the lively village of Fornalutx with its cafes, restaurants, bakery and shops. The beach at Port de Soller and the bustling market town of Soller are just a 10 minute drive away.

Set over four floors, the house has five bedrooms (two double, two double/twin, one single) and five bathrooms (two of the bedrooms are ensuite). In addition, it offers a spacious, well-equipped kitchen with filtered water available on tap, two living rooms, a dining room, an office, a reading room with spectacular views and an imposing entrance hall. It has air conditioning and central heating throughout, in addition to two wood-burning stoves. There are three large sunny terraces on three levels, all with comfortable seating and wonderful views. The lower terrace has a private swimming pool as well as a shaded outdoor dining area outside the kitchen. The house is surrounded by a pretty garden with lemon, orange, almond and olive trees.

The house itself, like many in the historic village of Fornalutx, is not directly accessible by car. Free parking is available in a new car park in the village which enables guests to drive part-way up to the house, and then walk the remaining five minutes up steps. Fornalutx is a village built on different levels with wide cobbled streets and visitors should be aware that the steps up to the property make it unsuitable for those with significant mobility issues.
