We have stayed here 3 times now and absolutely love the villa and location. Jenny is a great host , she tries to ensure that you get full enjoyment from her fabulous property. Only small criticism would be we felt the fridge space was slightly restrictive for 10 people.
This property more than lived up to the online photos and previous reviews by other travellers. This is a very special place to stay and we were extremely lucky to find Cas Penelope after countless nights of trying to find just the right type of villa to suit everyone in the groups needs.
Jenny was fantastic and her communication amazing. She was extremely helpful in recommending a restaurant for my mums special 60th meal, that would suit everyone from 70-4 yrs.
Every bedroom within the villa anyone would be happy to stay in. They are magnificent. The children really appreciated the variety of toys and dvds, which were also a welcome midday distraction from the sun. Towels were also in abundance and greatly appreciated.
I would also like to note the surrounding area from a group perspective as well. We were a group of 8 adults and 3 children spanning 3 generations. The villa is situated just on the outsirkts of the most beautiful mountain village/small town, about a 5 min drive from the soller and 7 min drive to port soller which served us very well for beach days. The village of fornaluxt offers everything you would need for a week’s stay without venturing any further. The spar shop in the centre of the village is extremely well stocked and it really isn’t worth the drive down into soller to visit the Eroski supermarket. Fornaluxt also has around 10 cafes/restaurants which are all very good but both the pizza restaurant and the Majorcan restaurant opposite were our favourite.
If we didn’t require a larger property next year I would have no propblem returning annually. My mind and body were at peace in the surroundings of this beautiful house.
Thank you Jenny for all your care and attention to detail
What a lovely review! It was such a pleasure to meet you and I’m glad you enjoyed a special time at Ca’s Penelope for your Mum’s 60th.
Authentic Spanish Village Location & Setting!
This Villa was located in a very picturesque setting within a short walk to the Village town of "Fornalux" pronounced "Forn-uh-Looch". It was a quiet and relaxing place, with quaint streets and a scenic drive to get to. The Port Soller was also a great Gem, more of a tourist area. Our rooms were spacious, and well appointed. The communication with the owner was excellent, and I found her help with a few extra requests truly helpful to us all. As mentioned, Parking was a bit of a challenge, but nothing that made this choice a game changer. Mostly, this location is a very Authentic Spanish Village location, which made it memorable. Our favorite local restaurant was "Calazone" - with great variety of entrees both Spanish & Italian, and amazing desserts.
Beautiful villa and surroundings
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the villa was perfect and had everything we needed. It was set in gorgeous hills with views you only see on postcards! It was a lovely walk into Fornalutx and Sóller where we found some great restaurants. Thanks Jenny we’ll definitely try and come back!
So happy you enjoyed your stay without a car at Ca's Penelope - proof that there are good places to eat etc within walking distance. Hope to see you again!
As good as it gets.
We had a wonderful time at Ca’s Penelope. The house is everything we wished for and more - a stunning location, a beautiful, eclectic interior, a lovely garden and pool, comfortable and very well appointed. Jenny was a welcoming and helpful host. We love Fornalutx and the surrounding area. Lots of excellent restaurants and quality shops providing Mallorquin produce. Wenwould particularly recommend Bens D’Avall, Lluna 36, Cafe Med, Cafe Soller and a boat trip on the Bonnie Lass out of Puerto de Soller. We wouldn’t hesitate to return.
I am so delighted you enjoyed your stay at Ca's Penelope - Come back soon!
Fabulous HUGE house !!
Set in Fornalutx..this stunning property is much larger than the photos depict.
The shady porch area at the front of the house worked perfectly for us ..as we had two very young children with us .
The pool was a little tricky with quite a drop off one side..to the grass.
The kitchen is very well equipped..and has sharp knives..something hire properties don’t often have !!
The roomy bedrooms have very comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms.With white fluffy towels!
All in all a brilliant property that is still a “home”
Go on .....book it 😉
I am delighted that you enjoyed your family celebration stay at Ca's Penelope!
