Everything you need in a great location

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the villa, it is very homely and had everything we needed.

The location is very handy as it is near supermarkets (10 mins) and the airport (15 mins). Also since it's more central and near the main road running through Menorca it's very easy to get to other areas of the island.

The communication with the owner Luisa was great. She was always quick to reply to my questions and keep me updated with the booking.

The villa is very secluded and you have no idea there is anyone else around you. From the back of the house where the pool is you are completely private.

There were 7 adults and 2 young children in our group. There was plenty of space for us all including seating both inside and outside. A cot and highchair were provided and there were also some plastic bowels.

The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of bits left over from other guests / the villa owner, for example salt, sugar, olive oil, herbs, tin foil, cling film, sandwich bags etc. Very handy for a self catering rental as you don't want to have to buy all these bits for just one weeks stay.

You will definitely need a car if staying in this villa but driving around Menorca is very easy. Just be careful if you drive right into the centre of some of the towns as the streets can get very narrow!!!

Being April we had to use the heating for one evening when the weather went cold. This works really well even in such a large villa so we were all nice and warm.

For anyone looking to go in April one thing to note is the main holiday season hasn't started yet. Everywhere we went we could see people doing work getting ready for May when the season starts. Everywhere was empty which was great but it also meant a lot of the beach amenities were shut. I would probably suggest going mid May rather than April if you want an out of season holiday.

I would highly recommend this villa.

A beautiful villa, that is very well located.....We throughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Luisa the host greeted us at her beautiful villa, she was very friendly and amenable. It was a pleasure to meet her.

We, that is myself and my 8 other separate friends had such lovely time at the villa, it is beautiful, with many facilities, a pool, table tennis, large BBQ area with a pizza oven, even a gym and a sauna (although this was not working at the time) and the attention to detail and the marine like theme is excellent as was the master bedroom upstairs with a lovely en suite bathroom.

The location is very good, in the east centre between coasts and only 15mins form Mahon which makes travelling there easy and travelling to the different coasts north and south easy.

I would whole heartedly recommend staying here for a relaxed break.

A beautiful villa in a quiet location with easy access to the many attractions of Menorca

  • 5 of 5

We thought that the photos of the villa did not actually do it justice; the villa is in a quiet location and has everything that we needed for the perfect holiday. Everything was tastefully decorated, the bedrooms were lovely and the outside dining and relaxing areas were a definite favourite for us. The kids loved being in the pool and we had to tear ourselves away to go out and visit other places! Luisa and her husband were very welcoming hosts and any problems that we had were immediately resolved. We would definitely like to return in the future.

Peaceful Haven in Nature

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for peace and are lovers of Nature, this is the place for you! Situated at the outskirts of a rural village the property provides a large garden full of trees bustling with birds. Serenity, immersed in nature. Outdoors can't be kept too clean, yet you will be visited by cats and even a turtle every now and again.

The fabulous patio is the best thing of this rustic country house. And the nice pool area is right beside!

Another big advantage: The property is ideally located to get around on the island very easily. A mere fifteen minutes to Mahon or the beach, 40 minutes to Ciutadella. And the owners Luisa and Luca do everything to make you feel at home!
