We will certainly consider staying at the house again, we have stayed at many in the area and this was one of the best.

                                                                                                      We have just returned from a 9-day stay at this lovely house in the centre of the village which is a 5 minute walk from the bakery, main square (3 bars) and Spar (the only grocery shop in Fornalutx but has what you need for a short stay). The house was clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The main entrance opens directly into the sitting room and across a short landing into the bedroom. There is a lovely balcony off the bedroom which gets the sun in the evening. You then go down a flight of wooden stairs to the bathroom and the garden, and down another flight of stairs to the dining room, and a few more stairs into the kitchen. Watch your head if you're tall - my husband clunked his head on the kitchen beam and the doorway into the sitting room on several occasions - but it's an old house so to be expected. The garden is a real sun-trap, and we enjoyed a couple of suppers outside on the terrace which is nicely lit at night. We were pleasantly surprised to find it was warm enough to do so in late April. We didn't bother with a car for such a short visit. We could either walk to Soller (the path goes directly from the front door) and is lovely as it meanders through the orange groves, and is all downhill. From there we were able to pick up a bus (to Deia), or get the train from there to Palma. There are buses from the village (1 morning, lunch-time and early evening) but not on Sundays or Public Holidays. The small gallery in Soller was a treat, and the day we went to visit Robert Graves' house in Deia we were the only people there! The walking is lovely here and we were lucky to have very good weather so had some spectacular hikes into the Mountains and a rather lovely, less strenuous one, into the hills around the back of Soller Port. It was our first introduction to Mallorca and we enjoyed it very much. Having travelled around Spain for many years, I am not sure it is the 'real Spain' as someone wrote in the visitor's book as it is quite touristy and everyone speaks English which is not the case with many of the small mountain villages we've stayed in over the years where we've been compelled to speak Spanish (no bad thing), but nevertheless, it has enormous charm and I would recommend both the house and the location, which is spectacular. Wendy was very easy to deal with, and prompt in answering any queries. All in all, a lovely holiday and many thanks to Wendy for the use of her lovely house.
