We were drawn back to the wonderful Sa Cova after our first stay last year when we were in the unique position of being the first guests to stay at the property. From the moment we stood on the verdant veranda and took in the mountain views that are all pervading we felt that we had indeed 'returned home.'
What makes Sa Cova so unique is the combination of both stunning location and accommodation. Not only does this characterful, immaculate finca enjoy encompassing mountain views, being appointed at the top of Fornalutx village where the Puig Mayor dominates, it also maximises this position; swimming in the pool one looks into the valley and up towards mountains. The lovely veranda canopied by greenery offers al fresco breakfasts, lunches and evening meals.
We are all huge foodies and the well equipped and stocked kitchen ensured that we enjoyed cooking fresh, local produce readily and conveniently available in the village bakery and grocery a few hundred metres away. In fact, the finca's proximity to Fornalutx itself makes it a food lover's paradise! There are several good restaurants in the village in addition to a few local bars. Once again we must mention the exceptional meal we enjoyed at Cafe Med on our last night; outstanding, high end dining. Ca N'Antuna continues to offer very good, well- priced, traditional Majorcan cuisine, (you have to try the lemon pie!), with unsurpassed views when dining on the terrace.
In the evening we also enjoyed the cosy, well stocked library where we enjoyed a glass of local wine whilst dipping into myriad guides books and Majorcan cookery books. Wonderful finca and village! Highly recommended!
We will return but for longer next time.
The place was absolutely outstanding! Better than in the pictures. All communications with Lizette was informative, to the point and we felt very welcome indeed! I give Lizette and Sa Cova my warmest recommendations!
ein fantastisches Haus
Wir hatte in diesem wunderbaren , mit viele Liebe zum Detail eingerichteten Haus eine wunderbare Woche. In perfekter Lage, mit Blick auf die umliegenden Berge, konnte man sich nicht nur im Pool, sondern auch auf der Terrasse entspannen. Wir kommen wieder.
Fabulous family holiday
Sa Cova is as fabulous in real life! Have just spent a week there as a party of 5 adults, and found it difficult to summon up the desire to explore our beautiful surroundings, as all we needed was at Sa Cova. The facilities are first class, from the linen on the oh so comfortable king size beds, the well equipped kitchen with beautiful china and glasses, to the salt water pool where many happy hours were spent as 30 degrees plus temperatures every day! We BBQ'd most evenings watching the sun set in the valley, and enjoying a chilled glass of wine or beer, then sat around til the early hours playing scrabble or card games. A truly memorable holiday. Thank you Sa Cova.
Fabulous villa in an incredible setting!
From the elegantly decorated and calming interiors, offering remarkable views form every room, to the tranquil pool and fragrant orchard, you will never wish to leave Sa Cova. Owners provided flawless service during our stay. Thank you for sharing your wonderful property... we are counting the days until our return.
Fantastic house in perfect location
Beautiful, traditional Spanish house but with all the modern touches. Perfect location on edge of gorgeous village. Loved walking 5 minutes to the little square and bakery. Lovely restaurants with great views 2 minutes walk away. Woke to the sound of birdsong every morning, very quiet and peaceful.
Sa Cova is truly one of the most magical places I've spent my holidays. The bright green valley, the warm orange sunset light on the Tramuntana mountains and the relaxing beige and white interior... Everything is just in a perfect balance. The kitchen is beyond well supplied, the luxury bathrooms are equipped you with everything you need, the bedrooms are decorated calm but cozy and the comfortable beds will guide you into sweet dreams.
A place where modern comfort meets a rural Mediterranean setting and merge perfectly.
The overall vibe at Sa Cova makes you never want to leave the place, although a hike up the mountain provides a stunning view over the lovely town of Fornalutx and surroundings. Already making plans of coming back. Rather sooner than later!
Sa Cova is a piece of heaven! Everything is perfect: from the setting, the house, to the bedlinen and even the Cava in the fridge! Thanks to the hosts, we will definitely be back.
Perfekt bis ins kleinste Detail!
Wirklich ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen. Luxus, Ruhe und traumhafte Umgebung auf einer sonst doch teilweise recht vollen Insel. Wir haben die meiste Zeit unseres Urlaubs auf dem Anwesen und den Wanderwegen der Umgebung verbracht und uns wie zuhause gefühlt. Schon im Vorfeld hat sich Lizette besonders herzlich und hilfsbereit um unser Wohl bemüht. Service, Ausstattung und Gestaltung stellen selbst höchste Ansprüche voll zufrieden.
Beautiful house and beautiful location
Fantastic house for holiday for 3 generations. Youngest 21 and oldest 79, all of us loved the house and the surroundings. The house is so beautiful and clean, with good beds, linens, towels, the feeling of a luxurious hotel. Kitchen with all utilities and oranges and lemons in the garden to make juice of for breakfast. The city centre is right down the road with all you need, supermarket, bakery and good restaurants. We could not have had a better vacation. We are coming back, soon :)
Sa Cova is truly one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL holiday homes I have ever stayed in. The owners have decorated this stunning finca extremely tastefully and has taken the utmost care to provide their guests with high quality amenities and an experience packed with style. I received a warm welcome by Vero, the caretaker, who had taken the initiative to light one of the cosy fireplaces for my arrival. The experience was further enhanced by the delicious smell of orange blossoms from the finca's orchard. I would definitely recommend a stay at Sa Cova for anyone who appreciates the finer touches - at this price it is an absolute steal.
We can highly recommend Sa Cova. Very nice location with a stunning view to the Tramuntana mountains. The interior design is very authentic and very well selected. The kitchen is perfectly equipped even if you have optional a Weber grill on the terrace. Overall the house exceeded all of your expectations and it's a place where you definitely want to come back.
Sa Cova is a beautiful property with a very high standard of furnishing and amenities. There is plenty of space to relax inside and outside and there is lots of information on the locality to read about in the villa. The peaceful village of Fornalutx means you wake up to wonderful fresh air, the gentle sound of sheep bells and the sunshine coming over the mountain. There are great restaurants and bakery etc just a roll down the hill and stunning walks directly from the door. Sóller is a very short drive away and there is also easy access to many other towns and coastal beauty spots such as Deià, Sa Calobra and Valldemossa. Communication in advance was with the hosts who were so friendly and quick to respond to any queries. At the villa we met the property manager who again was very thoughtful and happy to help in any way. We would love to come back to Sa Cova and would heartily recommend a stay here, it really is premium accommodation and an ideal location.
Stunning property in an equally stunning location!
Our stay at Sa Cova completely exceeded our expectations on every level. From the moment we stepped down the path when we arrived to see the beautiful pool shimmering in the afternoon sunshine we felt at home. The outside dining area had the most stunning view of the Tramuntana mountains and the house itself is elegant, stylish and equipped with everything you could need for a luxurious relaxing holiday in a truly spectacular location. The village of Fornalutx itself out of all the places we visited is by far the most beautiful even than Deià. Food wise special mention must go to Ca N'Antuna a few steps from our property for delicious good value food and Cafe Med for a really memorable birthday dinner worth every penny. We didn't want to leave - we will be back!
