A small, charming hotel in the heart of the most beautiful village in Mallorca, set in the mountains away from traffic and noise. All you can see from the swimming pool is sky, mountains, sea and orange trees… ultimate peace and tranquility. To keep the kids happy by day you can walk in the mountains; from Soller, very close by, you can take a little tram ride to the Soller port, play at the beach and watch the boats sail by… for more beach, chicken and chips you can reach Calla Deia by car, walk down to the beach through the pine trees, jumps off rocks and swim out into the sea looking for caves and fish. Watch the most breathtaking sunset while eating ice creams at Foradada. Back in Formalutx, the village square transforms into an open-air venue for music and dancing, children are welcome and free to run around and play into the evening, and dance into the night.
