“Colour, comfort and relaxed style in the charming village of Fornalutx”
Each of the 11 rooms exudes creativity. Spotless, light and airy, they feature contemporary Mallorquin artwork and designer lighting mixes well with occasional antique pieces and original stonework. Comfortable beds ensure a good night's sleep (though the bedspreads are rather old-fashioned), while CD players, satellite TV and WiFi bring modern comfort. All except one room has a bathtub and shower (some even have a whirlpool) and there are robes and locally made toiletries.
Best of all is the Penthouse Suite - a sensational 1-bedroomed apartment in cool white marble with a vast open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area and private terrace. The upper bathroom has a floor to itself where you can soak in a huge round bathtub and lap up the wraparound mountain views. Our only problem was that we never wanted to leave (and with 24-hour room service you don't need to), but for those who do there is a private path from your bedroom leading to the swimming pool. It's expensive but definitely worth a splurge.
Of the other rooms, the 3 with garden views are the best. The other 7 rooms are just as nice but are at the front of the building, overlooking the lane (though it is pretty and traffic-free). The Junior Suite has an extra single bedroom and is only worth paying the extra if there are 3 of you. Some rooms don't have a mirror except small ones in the bathroom.
Breakfast offers fresh coffee and orange juice (the valley produces some of the world's sweetest oranges), a selection of fruit, croissants, ensaimadas, hams and cheeses.
There's an informal lounge area from where food can be ordered on request throughout the day - everything from simple salads to imaginative Mediterranean dishes using fresh local produce and accompanied by fine wines. Feedback is excellent. But most guests tend to eat out - Fornalutx has some great local restaurants, all within walking distance; staff can advise.
