Cala Fornells is a holiday resort in the southwest of the Balearic island of Mallorca and belongs to the municipality of Peguera (municipality of Calvià ). The complex is located in the northwestern part of the Bay of Santa Ponsa (Ensenada de Santa Ponça ), opposite the Malgrat Island (Illa del Malgrat).
Cala Fornells became famous for the architecture of the Russian architect Pedro Otzoup , who built the apartment complexes Aldea Cala Fornells in unusual (mexican pueblos ) style. The individual houses of this complex are uniform in color, material and style, but different in size, layout and many small details such as chimneys, window openings or balcony balustrades built so that the system does not leave the typical monotone overall impression of a holiday village.
No apartment unit is thus the other. Everything is closely nested and nestles between pine trees and manicured front gardens, connected by small and narrow streets and stairs to the slope. In the entire district there are – apart from the edges – no high-rise hotel complexes, as they are typical elsewhere for the Majorcan coast. The plant has a central administration and is – apart from the thoroughfare of the same name – protected by fences and locked doors and not open to the public.
Cala Fornells is located just above Peguera and actually has no real beach, as the coast is rather steep and rocky, in some places small stairs have been beaten for descent into the sea, at other places were small ladders for descent into the sea Water attached. There is a tiny natural beach in the bay Caló de ses Llisses and an artificial bathing area opposite the hotel Cala Fornells. The nearest beach at Peguera is about 15 minutes on foot via stairs or 20 minutes along the road. In the area of Cala Fornells there are several restaurants and a small supermarket. Like Peguera, Cala Fornells is mainly favored by German tourists.
