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.

Really enjoyed it, I would be happy to return to for another week. It is really, really well located. An out of town location, not far off to the west is Ciutadella and not far off to the east are some of the most attractive, covey beaches on the island. Back from the coast, individual and quiet (even the local dogs sleep at night). The property itself is in excellent repair, fairly recently refurbished with attention given to using quality units. The kitchen was very well equipped, it seemed to have everything we needed and more. Nice atmosphere, you know, the enigmatic poster for an obscure Fellini film of a man with a key, the Hesse books (in German) and Buddha with incense burner. I read a whole book while I was here.

Everything was clean, tidy, organised and just as you would expect thoutful and caring hosts to have it. The pool was lovely and clean and the surrounding area clearly safe so for a family with young children - perfect! The only problem we all had was that the holiday came and went all too quickly but we all relaxed and felt very refreshed when we returned to England. Francis was most helpful whilst we were there, providing maps, clear directions and also advice as to good places to visit. He and his wife clearly take pride and care in what the do and at no point did we feel unwelcome! Thank you both for allowing us to come and stay and we definitely put this top of our list of places we have stayed compared to other properties like this. We hope to come back again one day!
