This is a fantastically well-equipped villa. There are three balconies and a roof terrace with mesmerising views. The outdoor dining table ensures breathtaking evening meals (often made with your high-spec Weber BBQ). You are a two-minute walk to the Marina, which has arguably the best restaurant in Addaia and access to kayak, paddle-board, boat and speedboat hire. You can walk a short distance to the village centre where there are three main restaurants (Corner Bar is reasonably high-end Spanish), Don Carlos is Italian/Spanish and Es Castillo is British (but still nice!).
In the middle of those restaurants is a well-equipped Spar supermarket and a tourist shop selling all the inflatables, newspapers, snorkeling equipment, and touristy stuff.
Mahon, Es Grau and Fornells are all 10-15 minutes away (for those that do not know the island - these are the coastal non-resort areas in the West/NW of the island).
I would suggest this villa best suits a family or group of 6 looking to get out on the water - Menorca's great asset. We hired a boat from Barbarroja.net, kayaks from the Addaia marina and sailboats/windsurfers from Wind Fornells (who are fantastic).
The nearest sandy beach is 5 minutes away at Na Macaret. It is a beautiful natural sandy beach and great for lounging or building sandcastles (no sun loungers there). The bigger resort style beaches are Arenal d'en Castell and Son Parc, which are great if that's what you are looking for.
The villa is also next to the start of the Addaia to Favaritx section of the Cami de Cavalls. We took a 2k walk to the salt planes in the S'albufera where the nature is so protected you are not allowed to wear red clothing! It is abolutely incredible and you are unlikely to do better walks anywhere else - you can see flamingos, tortoises etc. There is also a footpath that takes you along the coast from the Marina around to Cala Moli and this is also gorgeous.
Should you wish to get out of the sun, they have a (must be) 50in high-spec TV with Apple TV. I recommend you sign up to Now TV via an Apple account and then you just log in when you get there. Shamelessly, we enjoyed watching our chosen team win twice whilst we were out there on Sky Sports. And Man Utd lost twice too.
Thanks to Katja and Kevin for having us.
