Dagrum sleeps up to 8 in 4 bedrooms. It is a fantastic family holiday home situated in probably one of the finest locations on the island. Because of its hilltop position the house is not overlooked and the pool and terraces provide complete privacy and stunning views across the island. But it is not just the views! Dagrum is well equipped to ensure all the family have a great holiday. The kitchen boasts all mod-cons, including a dishwasher; a good sized pool, if slightly strange in shape will provide hours of fun for the kids and the terraces with sun loungers and parasols will give sun lovers exactly what they want. For those with other things on their mind we do have a good internet broadband service and 3G mobile (depending on your provider). And all less than 10 mins from the sea and 30 mins from the airport.
Outside: The pool area is the focus for many. The irregular shaped pool is some 8m by 5m sloping from about 1m to over 2m in depth. Surrounded by terraces on two levels with sun loungers, parasol, table and chairs there is always some shade available. The built in barbecue is sadly ineffective but a more portable one can be used either here or on the upper terraces. These are either accessed up stairs from the pool area or directly from the sitting room. To the south is a covered terrace with a sofa and small table and chairs. To the west an open dining terrace which benefits from the best of the views is partially shaded. Table and seating for eight makes this a great place for any meal but watching the sun go down over Monte Toro is particularly magical. Off this area and with steps leading down to the pool is another sun terrace with sun loungers and a parasol. Not being overlooked means that all is enjoyed in the utmost privacy.
Beach and Es Grau: The extremely family friendly beach at Es Grau is less than 10 mins drive away. Dinghy sailing and pedaloes are also available. For the more energetic there are walks from here along the coast in both directions as well as through the Parc Natural. Otherwise there is easy access to everything that Menorca has to offer, all within less than an hours drive.
While Es Grau is nominally a fishing village it has become very much a holiday village. But the majority are local Menorcans or Spanish who have weekend/holiday houses here and have done so for generations. There is a small supermarket, beach shop, and a couple of bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed.
and ... : A car is essential. The airport at Mahon is 12km away, under 30 mins by car. The centre of Mahon itself is about 6km and generally less than 15 minutes drive. Ciudedella, at the other end of the island is 50km and less than 1 hour away. A small supermarket for all day to day needs is in ES Grau, more modern well stocked supermarkets are easily accessible in Mahon.
Available on the island is pretty much any activity you care to name. In particular we are 30 minutes away from Minorca Sailing at Ses Salines. They provide a host of sailing activities for young and old. Also available are horse riding, diving and a host of other water based activities.
Walking is an effort in the summer months but when cooler there are some exquisite trails, particularly along the coast.
S’Albufera comes alive with birds in the spring and autumn as a significant migration stop and for the bird watcher becomes a bit of paradise.
