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 apartments within it.

Neil and Julie purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Neil and Julie chose Deia - Soller Region

This is a well-proportioned apartment with a lovely position in the village and good access.

What makes this apartment unique

All the benefits of a boutique hotel with the addition of your own kitchen facilities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great place to stay. The appartement is as least as nice as on the pictures and has really everything you need in it. A kitchen with fridge, freezer, dishwasher, coffee automat and even a juice maker. A nice and sunny (from about 11-12 pm) terrace, a living/sleeping room with much space and a very big and comfortable bed and of course shower and WC. It is almost a flat and we felt like home and didn't miss any privacy. Neil is a very kind person who tried to help to improve our stay as much as possible for him. Fornalutx is a great and nice place. Although very small it has enough really good bars and restaurants to try every day in one week a new one. All the people their are very kindly and it was no problem to communicate in English.

Stunning 1 Bedroom Apartment With Terrace
average rating of 4.7 based on 30 reviews

a great apartment, but....

  • 4 of 5

A really lovely apartment, in a beautiful spot. Our only criticism is that we felt that the kitchen was not very well equipped...e.g. We felt the roasting tray was unusable, and there wasn't really anything that would go in the oven. Admittedly we probably cook more than others when we're self catering.

But apart from that we would certainly be happy with a 5 star rating.

Owner's Response: Thank you taking the time to write a review. We really value our guests' opinions. I think it is unfair to say the kitchen was not very well equipped. It has an oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, american style fridge, dolce gusto coffee machine, electric orange juicer, good selection of knives, pots, frying pan, crockery. As we live on the premises, we always say to guests to come to us if there is anything they need or something is not working. In this case we would happily and easily have provided a replacement roasting tray or additional ovenware. We cater to guests who like to cook as well as those who prefer to eat out. We would be happy to welcome you back in the future. All the best Julie and Neil

Perfect for us. Already booked our return!

  • 5 of 5

Julie was a lovely host. Met us at the door to the impressive entrance and communal area of the beautifully restored old building in which the accommodation was housed.

If you enjoy staying in places of individuality and character then this is for you.

HUGE comfy bed...(Super King at least). Great attention to detail. All the comforts you need.

Welcome pack of essentials in the fridge.

Coffee machine


Oven and hob

TV with British satellite


Digital radio

Beautiful furnishings

Large "farmhouse" kitchen

And French doors that open up the kitchen to a balcony with BBQ that overlooks the orange groves and mountains!

Unfortunately, the weather was not our friend while we were there, raining constantly (a complete freak on an island of 300 days of sunshine) but we still had an amazing time, thanks in no small part to our stay in such comfortable surroundings.

We have already booked our return!

Great property in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Fornalutx, the apartment is lovely and just like the pictures. We spent the week relaxing on the terrace and enjoing the views over the village, walking in the mountains and sampling the great food in the local restaurants. Can highly recommend Cafe Med for a treat (a bit pricey but worth it).

The owners were very friendly and helpful and live above the apartment so are on hand if you need anything.

We had a lovely relaxing week and are already making plans for a return visit!
