Fornalutx, Mallorca

Pretty rural village in the west of Majorca

Featured in:


Fornalutx, Mallorca

Fornalutx, in the hills above Soller, calls itself the prettiest village in Spain and it is hard to disagree, unless you accept the claims of its neighbour Biniaraix.

It is a quiet little place at the top of the Soller valley and has wonderful mountain views. A number of walking trails are easily accessible from Fornalutx, making it a top spot for hikers and bikers.

There's  little local shop but for more substantial shopping, you'll need to pop down the road to Soller, two kilometres away. It's an easy walk down along charming lanes and through pretty citrus groves.

There are a number of terrace restaurants and bars where you can sit back and soak in the views of olive and orange groves climbing ever higher until they reach the pine-clad foothills of Puig Major.
