About Rachel Cunynghame

This is what we like doing on Menorca - walking the Cami de Cavalls at the beginning & end of the main season. We love snorkelling in the cove.

Our grown-up sons & girlfriends now enjoy the villa.

My co-owner, my sister, goes there in summer with her teenagers to enjoy the sea and sun etc.

Rachel Cunynghame purchased this villa in 1980

Why Rachel Cunynghame chose Binibequer Vell

Our parents bought the property many years ago

As youngsters we drove through France to get to Barcelona and on to the ferry to Mahon. Such adventures.

We had many happy holidays here as did our parents who went out in May and September every year.

What makes this villa unique

Well, the views of course - just sea in front of you. As a family of swimmers we have always enjoyed the cove below the villa and as kids we used to swim from there around to Binibeca beach.

Snorkelling in the cove just below the villa is a great experience; usually not too many people around.

The villa is in a unique front line position right next to the sea (and, yes, you can hear the waves lapping in the cove and watch the sun going down over the sea).

There is a good beach with beach bar, restaurants, bars and shops all within easy reach.

Villa Doc is simply delightful. A chocolate box!

  • 5 of 5

One of a kind. I've never been so satisfied and at peace on holiday. The positioning of the villa is perfect - being so close to the sea - it's impossible to ignore the absolute advantage of having a quaint natural cove right off the terrace, that makes for perfect regular swims. The many restaurants within walking distance are excellent, for the friendly service and varied tasty menu's.

Villa Doc is a beautifully presented property that has been clearly well loved and extremely well maintained, in addition, the attention to detail adds to the charm.

We can't wait to return!

Fabulous location especially if you love snorkling

  • 5 of 5

The villa was comfortable and well equipped for self catering

In a really convenient location with supermarket nearby

Walking distance to exceptional sandy beach

But the lovely cove with steps down to the water off the rocks meant it was fantastic for what we wanted to do ie snorkel all day

The evening views from the terasse were phenominal

We have already booked for next year

It's all about Location, Location, Location

  • 5 of 5

As has been said by others, the best thing about Villa Doc is it's position above the sparkling blue sea where you can spend hours feasting your visual and auditory senses whilst whiling away the days. This combined with it's very good location just far enough from Binibequa to take a little stroll and the fact that it's 20 minutes drive from Mahon airport ticked all our boxes.

We landed about midday and were all sorted, having lunched at the Bini Inn and shopped at Eroski by about1600 ready for a most relaxing 8 days. In fact we subsequently mainly shopped at the excellent Sa Botiga De S'Uestra which is a whole different experience. We had planned to lunch that first day at the vineyard in St Lluis but discovered that you need to book. Looked lovely though.

The house is very much as described clean and well equipped and suited we 3 friends very well indeed. Thank you Rachel.

A FANTASTIC HOUSE IN A MAGICAL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this villa. The views from the living room/terrace/roof are breathtaking and the sound of the waves lapping against the rocks is magical. The villa itself is clean, bright, inviting and comfortable. The kitchen looks like new and is fully stocked with all the cutlery, crockery, glassware that you could need. The owner has given special attention to all the extras that one may need, like matches, lighters, cleaning products etc. Both bathrooms are clean and functional with showers in both. The main bathroom is so spacious with ample storage for toiletries etc. The three bedrooms are substantial in size with bags of storage space for clothes, luggage etc. The beds are so comfortable and the linen crisp and clean.

The jewel in the crown though is the location and the view. It is so relaxing just to sit in the living room, with the patio doors wide open, or on the veranda with a book or a glass of wine, listening to the sea, whilst watching the sailing boats go by. The sunset from this location is the most spectacular that we have witnessed and the photo opportunities are abundant. It is truly a breathtaking experience and one that we never tire of.

I would highly recommend this villa and we can't wait to go back there.

Wonderfully situated Villa in Binibeca

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the property at about midday and had to wait a couple of hours for the cleaners to do their job. This was not a problem as we walked 2 minutes down the road for a well needed drink and a swim at the Bini Inn! On gaining access to the property we found it to be very clean and tidy and the view is absolutely breathtaking. All the basics (Tea, coffee, sugar, condiments etc) were already stocked and as the holiday progressed we discovered that the villa has everything you could need and more! The easily accessible cove 50 metres or so from the villa more than made up for the lack of pool and snorkelling with the fish became a daily pleasure. Binibeca town is a five minute walk away and is very picturesque. Binibeca beach is about a 10 minute walk. I have stayed in several villas in the Binibeca area and can safely say that on position alone I have not found one better than Villa Doc! Overall a fantastic holiday was had by my family and I and I now have a new favourite place in Menorca.

Car: recommended

The villa sits above a delightful rocky swimming cove and there is a nearby sandy beach and a couple of local restaurants with pools.

There is also a water park nearby.

A car is not necessary but there is a great deal to see and do on this beautiful island.

There is a bus service to Mahon, the capital & port.

A little fun train runs close to the villa for trips to Punta Prima.

Out of High Season it is ideal for walking, biking, archaeological touring etc.

Horse riding, sailing, diving, golfing are all available.
