Villa in Cala'n Porter, Menorca. 10 min walk to the centre, 15 min to the beach.
Why Ann Barnfather chose Cala'n Porter
One of the original villas to be built in Cala N Porter it is a unique design. It is still owned by the family that designed and built it. There have been improvements, for instance the addition of a pool and creating a patio at the rear to accomodate the table tennis table and an area where the children can safely play ball games.

Booking and communication with Ann was perfect. Good location as short work to town restaurants and beach. The property has everything you would need and was clean and tidy on arrival. Perhaps a bottle of water for late arrivals would have been a nice little touch.
The air con worked really well and was needed!
All in all a great stay and we were really pleased and comfortable in this property.
Thank you for your review. It was very positive and I am sure it will help future clients when they are looking to rent a villa. I will talk to Sarah and make sure they leave a bottle of water in the villa whatever the next guests arrival time is. Kind regards Ann
Friendly owner and team at this Lovely villa in central location
Had a lovely 10 days at Villa Fleur. With all my family . Pool was really clean as were the rooms . The lounge area is a little dated but perfectly functional .
Big issues with flies and mosquitoes but that seemed to be island wide .
Cala n Porter was lovely and the beach reached by steps or car is set in a lovely cove and is very safe for children .
The biggest asset to this villa is the helpfulness of Annthe owner and Sarah and her team in the island .
It is important to myself and Propaclean that the standards in the villa are maintained. Your review confirms this.
If you return to Cala N Porter we look forward to welcoming you back to Villa Fleur. Ann
This villa is fantastic. It sleeps 7 and has 3 bathrooms. The pool area is massive and it also has a large area at the back of the villa where there is table tennis. Owner was really friendly and very helpful.
Thank you for sending a review of Villa Fleur. It is much appreciated. It sounds as though you enjoyed your stay which is always good to hear.
The new shower rooms will I am sure be an asset and we have increased the area where you can eat by the barbecue.
Kind regards Ann
Good and bad points
The villa is spacious and has good outdoor space and down a quiet road. It is well equipped. Lovely views from roof terrace.The sofa in lounge is very old hard and uncomfortable. We had to sit on sun beds which were comfier. The bath has a hole in it and is not full size and the sink loose. The shower head in ensuite faces towards back wall so virtually impossible to get under. The pool is not very big and not particularly private. .The tv and aircon did not work when we arrived but the owner did get both rectified in a few days. The manager was friendly but did not seem to know about much and kept saying I dont know about that. Overall we enjoyed our holiday but thought the villa needed updating.
It is very unusual to get a complaint about Villa Fleur. The company that take care of the changeover ask clients to leave any comments when they leave. Last year there were no complaints and several of the clients are returning this year. Instructions for the TV and the aircon are in the villa and clients have been able to understand them. Any breakages are quickly dealt with as soon as they are reported.
Perfect location & posttion
We were slightly apprehensive about booking a villa with a road-facing main garden and pool as we were uncertain how private it would be. However, the villa was in an ideal spot, near the end of a close and in an elevated postition and proved to be very secluded. It was also very light and airy inside and we loved the main terrace, accessed via the patio doors in the master bedroom, and where we enjoyed many a lunch and dinner. The kitchen units have suffered some wear and tear over time but the appliances appeared new - and the gas hob and dishwasher were a bonus! We made up our minds during the first week that we wished to return but were disappointed to discover the dates we'd hope to reserve for next year were already booked. However, Ann was very helpful in advising us of other villas close by that were available to rent. We had a fantastic fortnight and were sad to leave.
We recently came back from a wonderful break at this villa. It has all the amenities you would need and the garden is great. The pool gets the sun all day long. The air conditioning is a blessing in the July heat.
The villa is located in a quiet cul de sac so there's no passing traffic to speak of, making for a very quiet location, with fantastic sea views in the distance.
As the description says, the villa is located about ten minutes from the centre of Cala en Porter and it's quite a hike in the heat! Older visitors or those with young families will definitely need a car.
Cala en Porter has everything you need, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, and none of the 18-30 crowd. We've been three times now and love it. Club Menorca is a hidden gem about ten minutes from the villa, with great tapas and the best sea views in Cala en Porter.
We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely stay here again!
