This amazing house dates back to the 11th century and is an important part of Fornalutx. It was impressively modernized in 2019 with respect given the original features of the house.
Enjoy serene luxury in a traditional Mallorquin setting.
Placed in the beautiful village of Fornalutx - several times named “The most beautiful village in Spain” - the Posada de Balitx is an historic 660 square meter residence that offers beautiful views of the mountains around Soller valley, and immediate access to the historic narrow alleys of Fornalutx with its flowers, small stores and restaurants. Soller valley offers endless opportunities for hiking, bicycling or simply enjoying the lush green landscape with creeks and orange groves. Port de Soller and a swim in the ocean is only 15 minutes away by car.
Although the Posada de Balitx is an old traditional stone house the interior light quality is excellent and the whole house is bathed in natural light throughout the day.

Here a plunge pool of approx 15 square meters is being constructed that will be ready for the 2020 holiday season. From the terrace there is access to the garden which is currently being created.
On the first floor, next to the kitchen, you will find the main dining room, with a large jacaranda table seating 12 under the designer chandelier. This room also houses a newly tuned piano and a working fireplace which makes it the perfect place for entertaining.

Finally, at the very top of the house is the Studio with amazing views over the rooftops of Fornalutx, the mountains and the valley.
