Villa in Cala Canutells, Nr. San Climent, Menorca - Ideal Accomodation For Spending Time With Family And Friends
Hi, my name is Geoff. I am married to Clare and we have 3 boys. We bought the villa about fourteen years ago when it was not in the best of health. We have steadily upgraded and improved it over the years and we now have our dream villa. It was more than a project, it was our baby, and we have taken care to develop the villa tastefully. To this end we believe we have achieved our goal and along the way, our family has had some memorable holidays here. However, as with all families, the boys are growing up and want to see different things and enjoy new experiences. Therefore our baby has grown up too and now needs to go out and earn her keep. This means that we are able to offer the villa to all holiday makers who would like to experience what we have had for so long. Enjoy. Geoff.
Geoff purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Geoff chose Es Canutells
We love Canutells because it is a small peaceful residential village. The beach bar/restaurant is ideally situated to tempt you after a hard days sunbathing and Luis (the owner) always extends a warm welcome. Canutells also has another bar serving "full english" breakfasts and other food throughout the day. There is a Spar and car hire shop. A 10 minute drive from the airport makes it perfect for those who do not want long transfers and yet there is no aircraft noise at all. A five minute drive will get you to San Clement where there are bars and restaurants, banks and a good supermarket. A 15 minute drive will get you to the centre of Mahon - the island capital - with its lively port. A 25 minute drive will get you to the islands only golf course at Son Park. Perfect.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is a short stroll to the beach which is located at the end of a beautiful cove. The villa is also located on the famous Cami de Cavalls, which means bridle path, and actually circumnavigates the entire island. It is very popular with walkers, mountain bike riders and horse riders.

Excellent holiday villa!
Our three generational family has just returned from a ten day holiday in this lovely villa. We have stayed in many villas over the years, some better than others...this was the best so far and we would love to return. We particularly enjoyed the 'walk straight in' pool, a really pleasant temperature and a good size even with 7 of us in together. Geoff was very obliging and easy to get hold of and the manager, whom we had to call on once, came immediately and sorted our problem out...also very pleasant. We loved the covered veranda where we ate throughout the holiday...never ate one meal inside! It was very welcome shade when the sun was just too fierce. The location of the villa was also good, set among other villas equally well-tended and a stone's throw from a cute little beach where we swam on a couple of occasions. There were lots of other lovely beaches within half an hour's drive which we also used. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa..it 'does what it says on the tin.'
Fab villa in a really peaceful location but really central to reach everywhere, it had everything we needed for 2 families and we all loved it here, the pool is a great size for kids, plenty of space for us all in the villa, we would love to come back here. Excellent communication from the owner throughout too-thanks Geoff

The perfect villa
We were a family of four staying at the villa. The villa had everything we needed and ample space. Geoff was an excellent host and Martine answered any of our questions quickly. We loved staying at the villa and would recommend it to anyone.
Thanks for review and hope we can welcome you and your family back in the future
Had a wonderful time in this excellent designed villa. It was well equipped for our stay with everything we needed, the location was lovely with a little beach down the road and local shops. The pool at the villa was very well maintained and was just what we needed after a day in the sun and the children enjoyed their 'adventures' in the garden. The bedrooms were comfortable and there was plenty of space for all of our party.
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your holiday and the villa
Fantastic Villa in great location
The villa is about 15 minutes drive from the airport but there was no noise from aeroplanes, so the best of both worlds in that respect. The beach is just 2 minutes walk down the hill. There is a bar/restaurant offering great Paella and a lovely view of the bay. The beach was not too busy and has a safe swimming area for kids.
It is a short drive to Mahon which has loads of great restaurants, bars and a fantastic harbour from where went rented a boat. The Villa itself is very well decorated and clean with excellent facilities, just like a home from home. We will definitely be back here to stay again soon, we would thoroughly recommend staying here.
We look forward to welcoming you back
