This stunning 3/4 bedroom farmhouse, lovingly restored using a combination of natural materials & driftwood from the northern shores, offers its guests privacy & exclusivity. Entranced through traditional olive wood gates & under a honeysuckle arch, the limestone pathway leads you to the secluded house where you are greeted by a typical Menorcan stone table & bench seat where breakfast can be eaten all summer long. To the rear of the house you will discover a covered terrace that seats eight, 2 BBQs & a private bar to sit & while away the night. The main house sleeps a max of 4 people & has a master suite upstairs with super king bed, shower room & private terrace for lazy breakfasts. Downstairs is a second smaller king/twin bedroom with bathroom, lounge & well equipped kitchen.
5 metres from the main house is a separate guest house which offers accommodation for an additional 2 adults & 2 children. This has king/twin beds & en suite shower room plus a second bedroom with two bunks. A beautiful private pool with outdoor shower and secluded sun terrace makes for the perfect holiday.
200 Year Old Menorcan Farmhouse: The house is located in the much sought after village of Torret, close to the town of San Luis.
It is only a short distance from Mahon and takes 15 minutes by car from the airport. Torret is only minutes from some of the island's favourite child friendly beaches e.g. Binibeca and Alcaufar. The village itself has 3 fine restaurants which are all within walking distance. There are also 2 very popular Italian Pizzerias within a 5 minutes drive. San Luis town is a 15 min walk & has a church, a selection of bars, restaurants, coffee bars, shops & banks. La Rueda, the well known tapas bar, attracts visitors from all over the island & is very child friendly.
The nearest supermarket, Sa Botega de S'Uestra, acknowledged to be the best on the Island for its locally grown vegetables & friendly coffee bar, is located at the end of the Torret village.The staff are Menorcan but speak excellent English.
The island has many recreational activities from which to choose & we have a wealth of experience, built up over many years, to ensure that you will sail, horse ride, dive, snorkel, walk, bird watch, paint, mountain bike, etc. to your heart's content, should you so wish. Or, why not just lay back by the pool & be massaged by a highly qualified visiting therapist? Boat charter, sailing tuition, diving tuition & riding all available locally. Trotting races twice a week in Mahon are well supported by locals. There are many walks over the island which is designated as a natural reserve & there are many sites of architectural interest.
If you love cricket, you will always find a warm welcome at the Menorca Cricket Club which is less than a 5 min drive from the farmhouse.The club has Sat/Sun/Wed games during the season & visiting guests are welcome to play or just visit the bar!
The farmhouse provides the perfect environment for a fantastic family holiday. Each room has portable cool air fans for the balmy summer nights & a fireplace/log burner for the winter guests. Smart TV/DVD player and Wi-Fi connection as well as wireless audio speakers in the main house & the Casita, ensure that you have every home comfort. Babysitting service available by request.
The majority of pools in Menorca are not gated therefore it is the responsibility of the parents to ensure the safety of their children at all times.
As both the gardens & pool are not overlooked, this makes the farmhouse a favourite for Naturists.Under Spanish law, Naturists are welcome on all of Menorca's beaches.
The local bus network is very reliable however, a car is recommended to allow you to enjoy the beauty of the island.
The house has been approved by the Tourist Board and is fully licenced.
Set in the unspoilt, picturesque hamlet of Torret, surrounded by pretty white farmhouses & open fields yet within walking distance of the lovely historic town of San Lluis & 10 minutes drive from the sandy beaches at Binibeca/Alcaufar, this 200 year old farmhouse is an absolute delight. Tranquil & secluded, it offers a haven for those who want to relax & enjoy everything that Menorca does best! Torret village itself hosts 3 excellent restaurants with many more just a short amble away. A 15 min drive to the beautiful port at Mahon offers bars, restaurants & a vibrant atmosphere . The beautiful coastline that makes Menorca justifiably memorable is only a few minutes drive away, or for the more athletic, a half hour stroll. A short distance away is the picturesque inlet of Cala Fonts with the first cafe on the island to get the morning sun! The Fonts, with its natural beauty & choice of waterside alfresco lunch/evening dining, is a must for any visitor.
Other Activities: Bird watching
Golf: The only golf course on the island at present is at Son Parc. This is a short 20 minute drive away. However, 2 more courses are presently at the planning stage.
Son Parc offers practice facilities/video recording of your swing, etc., as well as an excellent restaurant/bar at the 19th hole. If you are looking for company, we can always find you a partner to play a round with should you so wish. Clubs, trolleys & buggies are available for hire.
Son Parc hosts a lovely sandy beach for the family while you relax and enjoy your day.
