Ca'n Reus

Fornalutx, Mallorca

Adorable, homely little hotel with fabulous mountain views in Mallorca's prettiest village - perfect for walkers

Fornalutx is a beautiful little village - a cluster of old, honey-coloured stone houses, set against a spectacular backdrop of Mallorca's highest mountains and a valley stretching down to Soller. Tucked away in one of its sleepy cobbled lanes is Ca'n Reus, a typical 18th-century Mallorquin village house, which has been sensitively and tastefully restored. You can gaze out from its terrace or enchanting small garden to a truly wonderful vista with ancient olive trees and citrus groves. Go walking, breathe in the mountain air filled with the sweet scent of orange blossom, then snooze on a deckchair in the orchard. In the evening enjoy the richness of the dusk light moving across the craggy mountains.

British owner Sue Guthrie first came to Fornalutx as a child and has loved the island ever since, determined to retain the essential Mallorquin character of Ca'n Reus while making some improvements. With a passion for the surrounding mountains, she can give advice on the best walks, prepare robust walkers' picnics, book restaurants en route and act as a guide, if requested.

Highs

  • Unpretentious and friendly ambience, with just 9 rustic rooms
  • Superb location in the heart of a tranquil village with majestic mountain views
  • Beautiful terrace which is a real sun trap in the summer months
  • Traditional Mallorquin breakfast feasts
  • i-escape guests receive a complimentary bottle of Cava!

Lows

  • Parking is impossible outside the hotel but there's a village car park a few hundred yards away
  • Some rooms are quite dark and we found the lighting too dim to read in the evenings (better to have a back-facing room)
  • You'll have to drive to get to a beach, but the hotel has a small pool for refreshing dips in summer
  • No TV, phones or minibars, but there is an honesty bar

Lovely light-drizzled Ca'n Reus has exquisite features and epic views...
