Balitx D’Avall is a little paradise in the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains. The sound of nature, the scent of olive and pine trees, the bleating of sheep … a place hidden in nature, where time has stopped……
The rural hotel Balitx D’Avall with its orchards, olive groves, oak and pine forests and its rich fauna is an ancient country house and a beautiful example of a Mediterranean rural farm of the sixteenth century. Located in an amazing valley in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountains, just 30 minutes from the beautiful village of Fornalutx and the town of Soller, it is the ideal place to rest and relax. You can partake in outdoor activities or let us arrange that special event for you.
At the hotel, you can spend unforgettable days: taste the traditional Majorcan cuisine, relax in one of its seven rooms, as originally built (but with a few mod cons – heating and bathrooms have been added in recent years) or you may prefer the old tower which is ideal for families or groups and retains the cozy and traditional old Majorcan atmosphere.
The ancient oil mill has been preserved with its impressive “Raulo” (oil-press) which pulled by a mule, crushed the olives preparing them for the press. This together with the old farmhouse kitchen takes you back in time to last century’s rural life in the valley.
In the rural hotel Balitx D’Avall rooms have no television, fax, phone or internet so you can fully enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the property. It has several rooms where you can enjoy reading in front of the fireplaces.
A lovely path surrounded by trees and bushes leads to the natural pool located between rocks and small terraces, where you can dive into the crystal clear waters that spring from the “La Font de la Mare de Deu” (the spring of the Mother of God). In the surrounding area, you can enjoy many activities including hiking, excursions in the mountains including one with mules, mountain biking or canyoning.
The country path that joins the Mirador de Ses Barques with the hotel offers many different and spectacular views and leads you to this little paradise. It is surrounded by, majestic olive trees, sheep and goats grazing peacefully, oh, and the fragrance of pure nature. For those who do not want to hike to the property, vehicles can be taken down (but only off-road vehicles with experienced drivers) or alternatively transfers can be arranged when making a reservation.
