Make a holiday villa in Es Migjorn Gran your home away from home

Set in unblemished rural landcapes and close to exquisite sandy beaches, Es Migjorn Gran holiday homes are ideal for those who want sun, sea and sand without the mass tourism and heavy development of other Balearic destinations. Villas in Es Migjorn Gran are upmarket modern buildings, complete with private pools and all the necessary domestic facilities. Holiday homes in Es Migjorn Gran would be perfect if you want to take it easy and recharge your batteries, but for active souls there's kayaking, diving and gorgeous biking and hiking routes close by.

Things to do

-Beaches. Es Migjorn Gran is convenient to some of the best beaches on the entire island. The south coast of Menorca is known for its long sweeps of soft sand. Platja de Sant Tomas is a fabulous example, with clear waters and soft sand. Binigaus is also well worth a visit, boasting a sheltered bay overlooked by small wooded hills. Trebaluger Beach is a beautiful little cove, with gentle, shallow sea.

-Biking. Menorca is largely a flat island, which makes it an undemanding place to explore by bike. Inland regions feature idyllic rural scenery, and one of the best routes to follow to get to know the island is the Cami d'en Kane, a bridleway established during British rule in the 1700s. It begins just to the north at Es Mercadal and runs east towards Mahon. En route you'll pass old stone walls, cattle farms and a handful of neolithic monuments.

-Watersports. One of the best ways to enjoy Menorca's sublime coastal scenery is from the water. It's possible to organise a self-guided tour of the entire island, but families can opt for shorter trips. It's a great way to discover deserted sandy beaches, natural arches and caves. Diving is also popular, particularly on the north coast, which has sheltered coves supporting abundant submarine life.

-Day trips. Menorca is compact enough that the top sights can be reached within a short drive. If you'd like to see an historic town, then the former capital, Ciutadella is on the west coast and has lots of narrow old streets leading to handsome squares lined with renaissance and baroque architecture. Closer and to the north is the Castle of Santa Agueda, an important piece of Menorcan history, where the Moorish forces had their last stand.

-Food and drink. Despite covering a small area, Menorca has several specialities of its own. One of these is gin, which is made from grapes and juniper berries, and distilled in Xoriguer, to the southwest of the island. Cheese is also an important product - with a soft to hard texture, Mahon Cheese is made from cow's milk and has its own designation of origin.

Weather in Es Migjorn Gran

Es Migjorn Gran holiday accommodation is on an island with a typical Mediterranean climate. This entails summers that last for five months and bring little in terms of rain.

Travel to Es Migjorn Gran

The villa has just been remodelled/renovated and was a high standard with good facilities throughout. The villa was situated in a great location in San Tomas - 3 minute walk to the beach and to the closest supermarket. The 4 bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, with 2 bedrooms having en suite facilities. The only downside was that there is no air conditioning in the bedrooms although the owners have supplied fans in each of the rooms. There was a washing machine/dishwasher and a good supply of cooking utensils in the kitchen and lots of open space outside. The outside area had a BBQ and plenty of seating/sun beds and the pool was a great size for families. There are steps and a ledge at one end of the pool which is good for small children who might not be confident at the deep end of the pool. There was also an outside shower by the pool. Although the details advise there is a DVD, there wasn't one available. We also had some problems with the free view channels on the TV. The owners were very helpful in trying to resolve this - although we were never able to watch the UK channels that well, it wasn't a huge issue as we hardly watched any TV. The back garden still needs some landscaping but my guess is that this will be done after the summer when the weather is cooler. San Tomas is a small seaside village but has access to a good size sandy beach and there are a number of local restaurants to eat at - we went to Es Brucs, Can Berto and Es Pins and all were good and family friendly. There are several shops where you can buy food and the usual beach items. There are also 2 car hire places, Eurocar was more expensive than the local Spanish car hire place (Autopons - which is next to the closest supermarket). We were here for 10 days and hired a car for 3 days to see more of Menorca - Fornells is definitely worth a visit, a pretty fishing village with a good selection of restaurants. You can also get a bus to Ciutadella or Mahon and there is a taxi stand on the main road. Overall, we had a lovely break and would recommend the villa and location for families.

While there are properties above and below, one does not feel overlooked in the least, given the way the building is structured -- creating totally privacy and seclusion. Furnishings were great. Kitchen facilities superb for those who wish to eat in, as we often did at lunch, and for each dinner. Plenty of open space, inside and out. Well looked after gardens. An absolutely lovely pool, and gardens which are being further developed, to complement those trees and bushes already on site. We will happily return to Villa Paraiso and cannot recommend it enough to families, couples, or even a single traveller who wants a property which is a large size three bedroom but with a comfortable, cozy, easy feel. A huge thumbs up.
