About Neil and Julie

We came to Fornalutx on holiday for seven years after buying a house in the village. We loved it so much we moved here permanently in 2013 and bought another house to renovate and live in. We now share our home by way of having created two self-contained properties within it.

Neil and Julie purchased this house in 2012

Why Neil and Julie chose Fornalutx

This property is part of our house and we fell in love with its location: it is in a quiet part of the village with views of the mountains and overlooking orange groves but yet is still so close to the village amenities. It is easy to get to by car or on foot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect place! We enjoyed 6 wonderful, relaxing days in the beautiful mountain village Fornalutx. Julie and Neil´s house is not only located in one of the nicest old villages in Mallorca, but indeed also very romantic, quiet, nicely and fully furnished and very clean - and if you do not only want to enjoy the great view on the neighbour´s orange grove and the mountains from your own terrace, cook, watch DVDs provided by Neil and Julie: the hiking path starts right in front of the door to explore the beautiful landscape... Julie and Neil are great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. A total superplus for this perfect, perfect hideaway! Anytime again!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Neil's home was charming and exactly as pictured. They were very accommodating with our arrival time and helped us locate the property and parking. I appreciated that the house included complimentary champagne, snacks and some beach towels for our use. The house was clean, and I really enjoyed the patio area. It was a very easy walk to the restaurants, supermarket and main plaza in Fornalutx. We even did an easy hike to Soller for dinner one evening. Very happy with our stay here!

We found driving and parking in Fornalutx to be a little bit stressful, but that was true of all of the small villages on the island. Fornalutx has a reputation for being the most beautiful village in the area but it also has the fewest bakeries, restaurants, businesses, etc so consider that when deciding on where to stay.

Beautiful location, great for walking.

  • 4 of 5

Pretty apartment, very quirky. Great location for walking/cycling. Plenty of nice restaurants in the village. One small problem at the apartment was the shower curtain, every time you tried to wash it would cling to you..not ideal, but very minor. Overall, would definitely go back to the area and apartment. Lovely break.

Beautiful old Finca in a quiet corner of the village.

  • 3 of 5

Tastefully decorated and with some original features and a beautiful little courtyard garden overlooking the orange grove, the property is ideal for two people.

Neil the kind owner of this property was there with friendly advice for our stay in the beautiful village of Fornalutx which was surrounded by orange and lemon groves and where the air smelled constantly of orange blossom. A thoughtful welcome pack was also appreciated.

Situated in a quiet corner of the village but within minutes walking distance to all the village has to offer.

Owner's Response: The property is set in a quiet yet convenient part of the village and you are right the air often smells of orange blossom at this time of year. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Very pretty

  • 3 of 5

It was a very pretty apartment and a beautiful village...

But a bit spoilt by the noise from the upstairs apartment .. Very noisy could hear everything..

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you found the apartment and village pretty. I am sorry though that your stay was somewhat marred by the noise from guests above. We do ask guests to be considerate to fellow guests during their stay but unfortunately I think the guests staying at that time were younger than our norm. Hope it didn't spoil your holiday. Kind regards, Neil & Julie

Fornalutx has been voted the prettiest village in Spain and it lives up to this accolade. It is a 1000-year-old Moorish mountain village with stunning views of the Tramuntana mountains and down the Soller valley with its orange and olive groves to the sea at Port de Soller. Fornalutx is well served with 5 restaurants, 3 café bars, 2 banks, a chemist, a doctor's surgery, hairdressers, a couple of gift shops, a small supermarket, a bakery, a church and a playground and tennis court. A larger selection can be found a short distance away in Soller. Fornalutx is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday whatever the time of year. It makes a perfect base for a walking or cycling holiday or to soak up the ambience of this picture postcard village whilst enjoying the nearby beach resort of Port de Soller and neighbouring cultural town of Soller.
