This is a clean, freshly decorated villa, well-stocked in the kitchen so self-catering is a pleasure. We were a couple, but the villa is set up for six. From first contact with Laura, the owner, we felt in good hands. Laura was quick to respond to any communication and helpful in answering any questions and was readily available during our stay.
The villa is located in a quiet area and is not overlooked which made relaxing by the pool a joy and will be a benchmark for future rentals for us. There are no long distance views, but the wrap-around forest and vegetation offer seclusion and peace. The garden is large and includes a less formal, more wild area that attracted the wild Menorcan tortoises.
The patio and pool area are excellent - very well maintained and very clean so there is no problem going barefoot. Nor did we find any leaves or other vegetation fell into this area as we've found in other properties we've rented. Tucked away around one side of the villa is an area with a rotary clothes line and a drying rack, accessed either from the garden or directly through the utility room. In case of rain there is a small amount of line drying available in the utility room which we found a thoughtful extra. We found access to the utility room through the third bedroom odd, but as this room was not being used, it didn't bother us. There were also bulbs missing from some lamps/lights, but we found the rooms we were using adequately lit.
We enjoyed the pool, which is larger than usual and the electric pool cover kept in the heat. During our fortnight's stay, the pool maintenance man came once to check all was well, though not to do any cleaning. Having said that, with just two of us, the pool remained clean so didn't need any attention. The pool loungers looked new, though we felt they needed cushions to be comfortable. The shaded outside eating area was really lovely and, because this side of the property faced south, the additional, new awning was welcome. There was a faint smell of petrol or diesel from the area around the pool pump room.
We liked the air-conditioning in the living area as well as two of the bedrooms and with the doors and windows closed the inside of the villa on hot days was a welcome place to retreat to. When we were there in September, the biting insects were a real problem, so the insect screens on all the windows were a godsend.
Seating in the living area is for four people - not a problem for us, but worth noting.
