Make a holiday rental property or apartment in Fornells, Menorca your home away from home

Fornells is a wonderful fishing village on the rugged northern coast of Menorca, located just 3km from its exclusive neighbour, the Playa de Fornells resort. Located on a wonderfully picturesque bay, and filled with exceptional restaurants, Fornells is a wonderfully peaceful, exclusive place to escape, and with all the facilities of Playa de Fornells just a 20 walk along the spectacular coastal path, everything is in place for a truly unforgettable holiday.

Things to do in Fornells, Menorca

The Bay of Fornells is a fantastic, almost bottle shaped inlet, (overlooked by apartments in Fornells, but not those of Playa de Fornells, which actually overlooks the Bay of Cala Tirant), offering almost perfect conditions for windsurfing and sailing. Offering plenty of safe mooring, there is always an opportunity to rent equipment or have a lesson from a Fornells property. The northern coast of the island is also where the best fishing in Menorca can be enjoyed, and opportunities to head out into the Mediterranean are rich.

Fornells received patronage from King Juan Carlos of Spain, and quickly developed into an exceedingly smart place to be seen, especially in one of the world class restaurants overlooking the Bay of Fornells, down onto the beautiful yachts moored there. There is in fact no beach at the foot of the village, meaning that the cafes and restaurants remain a very leisurely place to eat, and ensuring that Fornells remains predominantly a traditional fishing village, filled with Menorcan charm. The seafood is particularly good in Fornells, and if you only manage to eat out once from your self catering Fornells apartment, the lobster stew is an excellent choice.

The conical Tower of Fornells has become an iconic symbol of the north coast of Menorca. It is one of the largest defensive towers in Menorca, dating back to the English occupation, built around 1800. There are some excellent walks from the village up to the tower, which affords superb views across the sea and the island.

Places to visit on holiday to Fornells, Menorca

The resort of Playa de Fornells is one of the newest developments in Menorca, and has been build with luxury and comfort in mind. Still largely unknown to the international tourist market, and therefore still idea for independent travellers wishing for a little peace whilst enjoying the finest of Menorcan life, Playa de Fornells enjoys a fantastically relaxed atmosphere. Water sports absolutely thrive from properties in Playa de Fornells, and the wonderful sandy beach is a huge asset for anyone staying in Playa de Fornells accommodation or a little further along the coast in a villa or apartment in Fornells village itself.

Weather in Fornells, Menorca

The winter winds in Menorca can be very strong, effectively closing many of the Menorcan resorts for the winter months, proof of which can be seen in the bend tree trunks of the Menorcan countryside. However, from early May until late September, visitors are treated to blissfully warm, dry conditions, with daily peak temperatures soaring into the low 30’s (˚C) on the vast majority of days.

Travel to Fornells, Menorca

A Fornells apartment or holiday rental property in Playa de Fornells can be found just 30km from Menorca’s international airport, the Aeropuerto de Menorca (MAH). There are many regular flights to Menorca from the UK, provided by a great range of airlines. Due to the remote nature of the Fornells region, transfers to the self catering Fornells apartments and villas as well as the properties in Playa de Fornells are best reached by hire car or taxi, both of which are readily available from the airport.

The apartment is just a few steps away from the pool which the kids practically lived in. Lots of inflatables for them to use. They also enjoyed the play park in the woods which is just down the road. Erica the owner is very informative and answered any questions we had very efficiently. The area is very quiet in September and we liked that. There are a few bars and a couple of Spar shops which sold most things. The kids had the pool to themselves on several occasions. We hired a car which was helpful to get to the larger supermarkets. We also got to see other parts of the island which was nice. Would we recommend this apartment? - YES! Would we return to this apartment? - YES! Thanks for a lovely holiday!

It was clean and bright, with a great balcony overlooking the sea. We enjoyed using the pool, and often had it to ourselves. The owners were very helpful and offered recommendations for the area. We enjoyed being in Playas de Fornells with its close proximity to beaches, bars & restaurants. We hired a car so the island was easy to explore, but it looked as though the local bus service was quite good. We would not hesitate to return!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

I would say that the photos do not do the house or the grounds justice. The pool is a lovely place to relax round, and there are also numerous other places to gather - which we really liked. Often with holiday villas, if you have to eat indoors, things feel a bit sad - but here - the dining area and sitting room were very comfortable. The balcony to the front is a great spot for sun-downers, and the outside eating area comfortable, and private. The local beach - Tirant - is walking distance, and fun. This is also a good spot for walking - along the Cammi de Cavallis. We didn't rate the local bars, in the immediate vicinity, but the short hop into Fornells itself (a very nice walk along the rocks for all but Grandma) yields lots of restaurant and bars. Es Cranc particularly recommended. The owner is great to deal with, and her representative on-site attentative.
