Villa Saudade has its special charm lying in a simple elegance and the authenticity of the object. Villa Saudade is not one of the typical commercial vacation homes in one of the many tourists' agglomerations. It lies with its own private pool of approx. 13 x 6 yards in Parc Natural S'Albufera. The garden which is maintained by a gardener seamlessly integrates into the nature. Old, 6-9 m high palm trees define the character of the garden. There are two terraces. One protected porch and one veranda facing the pool with a nice view. At night only a few lights of houses can be seen although the neighbours are only 100 yards away on the other side of the property. In 2010 a new wooden platform of 600 sqft have been added around the pool. From Jan-March 2012 the villa has been totally refurbished and mostly fitted with new furniture. This was done on a high standard with kitchen appliances of Miele, Liebherr and Smegg. Bathrooms in natural marble stones with generous showers.

In Jan-March 2012 the villa has undergone a complete refurbishment. We build two nice bathrooms with natural marble stone as well as a more generous kitchen with high end standard (Miele, Liebherr, SMEGG, Nesspresso) for the demanding cook.

Information prio to arrival: Each tenant receive an information package including: 1. Online-Guide to Menorca, 2. Map 'how to get to the house'

The villa in Minorca was build in 1974 by our aunt and uncle in the context of the golf course development 'Shangri-La'. The golf course was banned by the environmentally focused minorcan island government shortly afterwards. In 1992 the 'Parc Natural S'Albufera des Grau' was declared a UNESCO world natural reserve.

In 1993 our parents took over the property which was managed my us since 2003.

We are a family from Düsseldorf: Jan, Nicole, Nick (6), Laura (4), and Charlotte (0). In 2013 we took over the property from the grandparents and spend 2-3x per year time in Menorca. We love the villa, the park and the island of Minorca.

Jan purchased this villa in 1993

Es Grau in Minorca is an enclave in which time seems to stand still. A real fishing village where small fishing boats moor at the pier and where the the water is so crystal clear that we often swim there. Only a few yard away the 400m long sandy beach of the bay of Es Grau starts. Perfect with young children because of the shallow, calm waters. The UNESCO Biosphere Albufera borders the bay of Es Grau and offers beautiful trails to the freshwater lagoon or in the adjacent secluded coves.

100% privacy in a tasteful environment with high quality facilities representing a standard like at home. Hardly a house in Menorca will have brands like Miele and Liebherr in their kitchen. The style of the furnishing is sylish but authentic menorquin. You can tell that we set it up for us and not save on the facilities as most holiday homes do. We try to serve our guests perfectly with many tips for Minorca.

The vacation villa is completely quiet in the nature reserve, yet just minutes from the authentic fishing village and beach of Es Grau. Also, Minorca's capital Mahon is less than 10 Minunten away. Thus, the location of the house is almost perfect, if you do not want to live right on the beach (which hardly exists in Menorca!)

Perfect for a peaceful, restful holiday.

We've been holidaying in this villa each summer for the last 12 years, both with and, now, without our daughter (who is beyond the age of wanting to holiday with her parents!).

Saudade is a beautiful home-from-home tucked away in a stunning natural park. We love the privacy and peace - the villa is not overlooked and the only sound is the wind in the palm trees around the pool. It's a ten minute drive from the harbour in Mahon, and about the same from the nearest beach at Es Grau.

The villa has recently been upgraded with new bathrooms (one en suite for the main bedroom), a new kitchen and lots of other goodies, but it still retains its cosy charm. Absolutely my favourite holiday spot.

We have just returned from a relaxing week at this lovely villa. We loved the seclusion and natural surroundings, and enjoyed the pool and terraces. We enjoyed exploring Mahon and also found quiet and unspoilt beaches nearby. The owner was very helpful and as this was our first visit to Menorca we were grateful for his hints and tips about where to shop and eat. There is so much to see but it was difficult to tear ourselves away from the pool - so we will definitely be back!

Deze villa is gelegen in een prachtig natuurreservaat en is heel comfortabel om rustig na een uitstap een boekje te lezen. Het zwembad is groot en heel goed onderhouden.
Op enkele kilometers zeer mooie vismarkt en delicatesse
winkels met vele soorten ham.

Villa Saudade lies in 'Parc Natural S'Albufera', a UNESCO nature reserve and a former golf course project in the 1970s. After approx. 400 houses were projected in the reserve the local government declared it as a protected area. Our house was one of approx. 35 houses build at the time and since then. The park is not even 10 minutes from pulsing Mahon and 10 min. from nice beaches. At 3 km you find Es Grau, an authentic fisher-village with basic shopping facilities including fresh fish from local fishermen.

Other Activities: Bird Watching

Golf: There is the Son Parc golf course in approx. 20 min. distance equally on the north coast of Menorca. http://www.golfsonparc.com/
