Make a holiday home, rental apartment or accommodation in Es Castell, Menorca your home away from home

Es Castell is Spain’s most easterly town, and the first to see the sun in the morning. Bracketed by two picturesque coves, accommodation in Es Castell has a huge amount to offer visitors, from the beauty of the surroundings to the bustle of the main squares or the beach. Es Castell really is a charming resort with a delightful atmosphere, where images of colourful fishing boats drifting with the tides and gleaming in the sun will fill your photo album.

Things to do on holiday in Es Castell, Menorca

Es Castell is a very historic town, with military influences still clearly visible in the design of many of its buildings and layout, especially around the town square which was designed as a parade ground. Although the main square is now dedicated to a children’s playground, the 18th century clock tower and military barracks are well worth investigating from an Es Castell holiday home or self catering apartment. The old barracks now house the Menorca Military Museum which is beautifully presented and a must see attraction for anyone with a military mind renting an Es Castell private villa. The archaeological discovery of a prehistoric town just on the outskirts of Es Castell was a major find. The village, known as Trepuco, was originally built in the 2nd millennium BC, and makes for fascinating viewing, especially when in contrast to the comfort of living in an Es Castell luxury villa!

The town itself is awash with magnificent shops, restaurants and bars, which have turned the town into a thriving and bustling commercial centre. The nightlife in the town is great fun, although not particularly raucous, and there are plenty of great little bars to frequent around the coves of Calas Corb and Calas Fons if you fancy a good night out from your accommodation in Es Castell. There is also a vibrant market in the centre of the town twice a week, which makes stocking the shelves of a self catering Es Castell holiday home cheap, easy and really enjoyable. If you do not feel like cooking during your stay in a self catering holiday rental in Es Castell, there is an incredible concentration of top quality restaurants around Calas Fons to try.

There are regular glass bottomed boat excursions into the ocean which leave from the harbour every afternoon. These trips offer a brilliant way to see what lurks beneath the surface of the sea, and clarity is so good that you can see some truly remarkable sights which might make you think twice about swimming in the sea after breakfast in your Es Castell holiday home.

Es Castell does not have a beach of its own, so renting an Es Castell villa with a pool could be a good idea if you are travelling during the hot summer months. There are some wonderful beaches to be found though, located just a few short miles in either direction from accommodation in Es Castell.

The al fresco dining area was ideal to sit, eat, chat and play games into the night. The house has lots of space although with the weather being so nice we spent very little time inside. This was our first visit to Menorca and were very impressed. It has some beautiful beaches, coves, towns, restaurants and harbours. The six teenage kids were never bored. Weather was scorching (heatwave in southern Europe) so it was a bit hot at night. There are plenty of fans in rooms but no aircon. Taxi service was a bit hit and miss so we drove mainly but as distances short not a problem. We have stayed in lots of villas in Mainland Spain, France, Canaries and Balearics over the years but will remember this one with much fondness. Overall a fantastic holiday and would recommend it to anyone.

The villa is so well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Quiet location within easy driving distance of beaches and restaurants. Very clean and tidy and plenty of outdoor space and seating areas.
