Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

Villa El Cielo

Fantastic location right on the cliff top with spectacular views over the beach and main bay area and yet walk up the garden stairs and you are on a small one way street with a mix of bars and restaurants a few steps away.

The bungalow is compact and tastefully decorated, there are a couple of one step variations to floor levels within which separate the different room areas but this is to be expected when the house is built into the cliff edge and you soon get used to them. Main bedroom and en suit is comfortable with plenty storage space, second bed room and toilet are slightly smaller but more than adequate for one or two smaller people.

The lounge and dinning areas are comfortable and afford excellent views out over the terrace and beyond. The terrace itself is spacious and secluded with all day sun to sit or lounge in. We enjoyed many breakfasts/dinner on the terrace just soaking in the views and tranquillity.

The area is quiet and yet busy dependant on what you are looking for, plenty to chose from - some English style bars and restaurants or typical Menorca/ Spanish. Try Lorengo for good and inexpensive Spanish fare or Sa Paissa for their enjoyable tribute acts and lively company. For views Club Menorca [although a little tired] is to be recommended and the food was excellent. You must also visit the caves [Cova d’en Xoroi] to enjoy an absolutely stunning location, excellent views and the wonder of how they managed to build the bars and club facilities into the side of a cliff.

You do not need a car and the taxi ride from the airport is a short 15 to 20 min ride. Local bus service to Mahon [which is beautiful] and beyond is regular and inexpensive although if you wish to go further a field a one or two day car hire would be beneficial.

All in all a very enjoyable holiday and we will be back next year.

fantastic villa, this was our first villa holiday and has set a very high standard for years to come.No negatives at all, everything worked and the views were even better than expected, the village is a short walk away and we found some lovely places to eat and drink . Linda took care of the booking in a very professional manner and even provided us with a bottle of wine , what more could anyone want !

We Can not fault Villa El Cielo in any way the villa is very clean and has got all you need for a home to home feeling from when you first walk in to the villa the views from the terrace are beautiful a great place just to chill out the town only a few minutes walk away as plenty of restaurants to choose from what ever you fancy to eat a couple did have entertainment although very close to the town it was very quiet around the villa at all times of the day and night Linda the owner dealt with our booking spot on and we would like to say a big thank you we have got some lovely memories of our stay in your villa and would like to return in 2015. Julie & Colin West Midlands.

Fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Villa el Cielo, and it certainly won't be our last. The villa has everything we need for a fantastic relaxing holiday. It is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The kitchen, which has been refurbished and much improved since our last visit is well equipped. The terrace is sunny and spacious, ideal for sunbathing, reading, bird watching, chilling out and eating al fresco.

The views are just as described in the previous reviews, breathtaking and magnificent. We spent many hours just watching the world go by during the day and star gazing at night.

One of the highlights of the holiday was watching a buzzard swoop and dive on the horizon.

The bars and restaurants in Calan Porter are friendly and inviting. There is something for every taste and budget. We particularly enjoyed tapas at Casa Tia, the quiz at the Village Pub and the banter in Merlins Bar.

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa El Cielo and would thoroughly recommend it to couples and families with older children.

Thank you Linda and Michael for a brilliant holiday. We hope to visit again soon!
