Wonderful villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in this villa. The location is great, peaceful and quiet with a lovely view to the sea through the trees next to the villa. The outside area is well equipped with chairs, loungers and pool table and the canopy over the eating area is a must at lunchtimes. Lovely dining table and chairs too. The pool is a great size to have a decent swim in and is one the warmest we’ve swam in as the sun shines on it all day. Inside the villa is spacious and very well equipped. There was nothing lacking in the kitchen and fridge/freezer brilliant - filtered water and ice cubes on tap! The WiFi never let us down and choice of tv channels, films etc great.

We walked into the main town every evening and it’s an easy stroll there and back with various routes you can take. Takes approximately 10-15 minutes. Nothing is too far away.

We had a couple of questions while in the villa and telephoned Ian, nothing was a problem and he was able to help straight away (thank you Ian).

If we return to Cala’n Porter this would be our first choice of villa to return to, no negatives, all we look for in a villa.

Lovely Villa with superb pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at your lovely villa. Very well equipped and comfortable. The pool was a real hit with all of us. Would recommend to others visiting Cala en Porter as a great choice of accommodation.

Amazing villa, great location, great size

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Cala en Porter, and certainly wont be the last. We would absolutely look to stay in this villa again.

The villa itself is well set out, with a huge living area, and a well equipped kitchen. The American style fridge was a hit with our girls, dispensing cold filtered water and ice cubes.

The three bedrooms are a great size, the en-suite off the main bedroom is big.

Outside has been well thought out, with loungers and chairs around the pool area for everyone.

The pool table was used by the girls almost daily.

The location is great, with a view through the tress to the bay, and is within an easy walk of the centre.

As a previous reviewer has stated, the pictures don't do the size of the villa justice.

Without doubt, this will be our first option, if its availabe, when we return in the future.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely villa in a wonderful location. The pool is the biggest we have ever had for a private villa. The villa itself is a great size as well and has everything you need. The location is amazing with views of the ocean from the terrace and in a very secluded spot even though you are within walking distance of all the shops and bars.

Owner's Response: I appreciate this review which reflects the effort we have put into the villa to make it a real treat for holidaymakers. We are pleased you had a great time and we will continue to keep the villa well maintained for all of our future guests.

a lovely villa, in a quiet location, large pool

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from two weeks in this lovely villa, which was clean and well maintained. The photos do not do the villa justice - it is large, cool and has everything we needed - in particular, the fridge dispensing filtered water and ice cubes was excellent! The pool is much bigger than most in this area, with a proper deep end, and the neighbours were both friendly and really helpful. The village of Calan Porter has excellent restaurants (La Palette, Sa Paisse, La Vela and Salandra were our favourites) and we had great trips to Mahon and La Cuitadella on the fantastic (air conditioned) local bus services. The Way restaurant in Mahon is one of the best Chinese/Japanese restaurants we have ever eaten in. An excellent villa, in an excellent location.

Fantastic Villa, well set out, great pool

  • 5 of 5

Great sized villa within a great location in Cala n Porter. The main living area and kitchen are spacious and very well equipped. The outside space is perfect for a family, helped with a very good sized pool. The addition of a pool table allows for great family fun. We have been to this part of Menorca at least 7 times and this villa is right up there as one of the best we have stayed in. Had a superb holiday and would definitely look to use this property again.

Car: recommended


It is a 20 minute stroll or 5 minute drive to the beach which has a lovely selection of tasteful bars and restaurants. The beach itself is outstanding and must be seen. The bars and restaurants in the village are very reasonable and most have set menus as well as a la carte. Many offer take away service. A car is not necessary but will be a bonus as there are many places to visit on the island.


The villa is 15 minutes from the airport.


It is a 10-15 minute walk to the village and there are 3-4 supermarkets with a great range of products. We feel that one of the best restaurants is La Palette and is only 1 - 2 minute walk from the villa. It is set in a wonderful location by the forest. Also we would highly recommend the Poolside Bar for its all round appearance, friendly staff and mouth watering bar snacks and meals. Although all the bars and restaurants offer good services at reasonable prices.

The villa is set next to a forest with incredible views and surroundings. Very peaceful for the best relaxing holiday.
