About Francesca

We hope you enjoy staying in our villa as much as we do when we visit the beautiful island of Menorca. It really is like a home away from home. The resort of Son Bou is very friendly and has everything you need from bars, eating places, shops and supermarkets. We really hope you enjoy your vacation at our villa!

Francesca purchased this villa in 2006

Why Francesca chose Balearic Islands












What makes this villa unique

You can sunbathe by your own private pool.The views of the sea are incredible. If you fancy a day at the beach it is only a short walk away. The best of both worlds! If you fancy staying in you can cook at the outdoor BBQ and watch the sun go down or if you want someone else to do the cooking, the shops, bars and restaurants are only a short walk away - again you have the best of both worlds!

It has everything we could have wished for, thank you for letting us use your home and look forward to going again next year.

Thank you

Perfect villa in a fantastic location. Views absolutely stunning! The villa is a short downhill walk to the restaurants etc, walk up hill on the way back was hot to say the least but you're more than rewarded with the views from the villa! Outdoor lighting really did make it perfect in the evenings. Well equipped villa and spotless! Thank you so much Francesca for your prompt and friendly correspondence from booking to departure. Will definitely be back! 😊

A stunning family villa in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This stunning villa is perfectly placed for a great holiday in the Son Bou resort and has everything you could possibly need to make it feel like a home from home.

We could not fault this villa, and the description and pictures are spot on.

We were so impressed with the villa and the professional service we received from Francesca that we have already booked for 2018.

See you next year.

Beautiful Casa Serena!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Serena was absolutely perfect, and so peaceful. It was everything we were told it would be and so much more. The rooms were decorated beautifully and so comfortably that it felt like home as soon as we walked in. A lot of thought has gone into this villa as there is nothing that has been left out, right down to baskets of little toiletries in the bathrooms to tide you over until you can get to the shops. The showers are awesome. The kitchen is fully equipped with literally everything that you could possibly need. The pool is wonderful and looks spectacular at night when lit up, and the lovely terrace provides utterly spectacular sunsets. We cannot wait to return and we will be regular visitors as it really was home away from home

Lovely family Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

I certainly recommend this beautiful Villa it has everything you need for a smashing holiday. Breathtaking views.

Spotlessly clean comfy beds. All towels were lovely and clean also.

There were even large toys in the pool ready to use when we arrived, (grandchildren loved them) plus other holiday toys ready to borrow for the beach.

The beach of Son Bou is within walking distance and is one of the best beaches on the island, bit of a steep walk back though. Arthur's restaurant situated close to the beach, reasonably priced, the food is OK. Owners are very helpful. We certainly recommend this lovely Villa.

A Lovely Time .

  • 5 of 5

Just had a fabulous week at this jewel of a villa . My husband and I found the villa immaculate with everything you would need for a self catering stay . With perfect views of the sea and only a short walk into the town centre which had supermarkets and a good choice of restaurants even a fresh bakery ! We did not have a car and this was fine due to the location just a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport . We will definitely be returning ! Thank you Francesca for making the whole experience easy and straight forward .

Son Bou beach is situated in the south of the island and is a firm favourite with families.

Son Bou is the longest beach in Menorca - nearly 3km of pale golden sand, making it ideal for sun bathing and water sports. The sandy beach shelves gently into the sea, which is generally safe for swimming. Ocean currents, however, can be strong at times and you should look out for warning flags.

The beach has several beach bars with a variety of water sports equipment available to hire including jet skis, pedaloes, windsurfing boards and snorkelling equipment.

Within the resort there are a range of bars, restaurants and several supermarkets. Son Bou features one of the island's few discothèques; the majority of night-life is relatively low key, being based around the restaurants, bars and hotels that offer scheduled entertainment.

San Jaime, Menorca is a purpose built resort on the Son Bou beach, that caters very well for family holidays. All the necessary facilities are to hand.
