Not all the Nordics that occur to Majorca are living in Santa Catalina in Palma. This week I will explain to you about a Swedish few that bought a residence in Fornalutx, just one of the most picturesque villages on the island, found in the Soller Valley.
I satisfied the few some a long time back when I was seeking for strategies and suggestions on wherever to hike on Majorca. I had the frequent guidebook but assumed it would be wonderful for a far more particular presentation. I googled and identified “El Limonero.”

The few appreciate to hike and have place together lots of information and pics from their have tour encounters on the island.
“An quick and shared love for Majorca satisfied us the initially time we put our toes on the island. We never assumed we would be affected by these strong feelings for a selected a position with no reservation and with no consideration”, states Birgitta.

A “party island”, stuffed with unappealing lodge complexes and alcoholic beverages. They experienced under no circumstances been so completely wrong. The Soller valley felt like home from working day one and they determined at at the time that this was the spot in which they desired to continue to be.
Their mates launched them to a actual estate agent in Puerto Soller who confirmed them a couple of apartments in the neighbourhood. Three times following their arrival on Majorca, they visited a attractive condominium in Puerto Soller that was up for sale and signed a deal ahead of returning dwelling to Sweden 4 times afterwards.
Early on, Birgitta and Thomas started to discover the island on foot. With the lovely Tramuntana mountains shut by, their option turned easy. Quite a few of Mallorca’s stunning climbing trails get started from or cross the Soller valley.
To get solutions for hikes, Birgitta googled, but found that there was not considerably data or web pages that impressed or showed images from the different trails.

Birgitta also commenced the Facebook team “Hike Mallorca”, with the goal for the users to share their hikes in text, movies, and photographs and to suggest issues that you completely must not miss when you are out climbing and things you should really avoid. In 2016 the few changed the apartment in Puerto Soller to a tiny property in the very gorgeous minor village of Fornalutx. “We like it here” they say. “The village has been selected as the most beautiful village on the island and we agree.There is a attractive small sq. to sit and take pleasure in a early morning coffee, we truly recognize the dining establishments and the persons who are living here are so kind and from all about the world.
