A real gem close to the beautiful village of Fornalutx. It did not disappoint in any way and exceeded our expectations. Inside the property was in traditional style ,comfortable and very well equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing family holiday. The outside environment was truly special and in particular the outside kitchen with BBQ and pizza oven was a highlight. This was a great place and the hospitality from Mari was very attentive - a power cut because of a lighting strike to the generator was sorted within an hour of contacting her. We would recommend wholeheartedly.

The well-equipped and nicely clean house, surrounded by nature (including the donkeys and sheep having the occasional conversation - humorous and delightful!) was just perfect. It all made us not want to venture out too much, especially with the wonderful views and peace and quiet. Lots of options for lying/sitting in or out of the sun were very welcome, as was the excellent bathroom, great shower and an abundance of towels and linen. Veronica made us feel very welcome - thank you so much!
