Sleeps 6, 3 bedroom apartment. This spacious ground floor accommodation allows our guests to enjoy their home from home comforts and when the mood takes them the opportunity for "Al Fresco" dining is available on the outside patio whilst you watch the sunset across the bay of Tirant. A visit to D1 bancalets is a truly memorable experience which has resulted in many of our guest returning year after year to this beautiful location which they agree is difficult to find anywhere else.

About Ruth Stock
I have holidayed in the beautiful island of Menorca, with my family for the past 30 years. In 1998 i decided to purchase a holiday home on the island and after a search of almost 2 years, i found and fell in love with D1 Bancalets,Playas de Fornells. Since 1998 i have decided to let other people enjoy this beautiful property, which has resulted in many of my guests, who are now friends, booking their return holiday's each year. As a family we visit the apartment as many times as our busy lives will allow but when we are not there we are more than happy for the property to be opened up to our guests, as this property is not happy with it's windows and shutters closed to the summer sunshine. We treat it as a home from home and we encourage our guests to do the same.

Why Ruth Stock chose Platges de Fornells
It was always my dream to purchase a holiday home on the island and after a search of almost 2 years, i found and fell in love with D1 Bancalets,Playas de Fornells. This beautiful family island is a far cry from the bars and clubs of the Costa's but it has twice as many beaches as Majorca and Ibiza combined and the locals say you could go to a different beach every day of the year. The pace of life is considerably slower than most of us are used to and within a day of arriving you will slip very comfortably into the relaxed Spanish lifestyle of Sun,Sand & Sangria. The location of the apartment is ideal for exploring the island and both the capital Mahon and the old capital Ciuetadella are a 20/25 minute drive away. To best explore the island a car is recommended but not essential.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property has the outstanding front line location, right on the pool & kids paddling pool, with beautiful views of the bay of Tirant with 2 beaches a mere 2 minutes walk away. There are several bars, restaurants and supermarkets a 5 minute stroll away. The apartment is fully equipped and has recently been refurbished to a high standard to include all of the kitchen appliances you would expect together with a new fully fitted en suite bathroom and a new walk in shower in the 2nd Bathroom/Laundry room. For your entertainment there is a colour TV with free view channels, video player, DVD player and stereo system with a great selection of videos, DVDs and CDs. On a clear day the apartment has a fine view of the islands highest and most spectacular viewing point, Monte Torro, which is a 10 minute drive away, overlooking the most beautiful town on the island, Mercadal.

Annual Menorca Jaunt!
This was our fourth visit to Bancalets D1 and we have already booked our fifth! The apartment is wonderfully placed. You wake up to an amazing coastal view and the option of opening the doors and having a morning swim in the pool which is communal but feels like your own! The apartment itself is spacious and airy and has a traditional feel to it. Menorca feels relatively untouched by modern tourism and yet offers so much. I don't really want to go elsewhere as I will compare it to Bancalets D1 in Menorca and therefore will most probably be disappointed! Thank you Dave and Ruth!
Hi Martyn & Family
Thank you for your wonderful review, it was most appreciated.
As I have said on many occasions, the view cannot be taken away and it is up to me to re - invest into the property to make sure that your stay in D1 Bancalets is equal to the view and its surroundings.
Looking forward to receiving you and your family next year.
We loved our stay here - so much so we booked to return next year straight away! Lovely apartment with amazing views and so convenient next to the pool. I can’t find one fault and definitely recommend staying here
Thanks very much for such a positive review and for the repeat booking.
I loved having you as a guest.
See you next year.
This lovely house is perfectly positioned with the shared swimming pool literally a few steps away, and the sea not much further! (although it is shared, when we went there were only two other people that we saw using the pool) The views are just amazing, and leaving them behind at the end of the holiday is so difficult. We stayed here a few years ago and loved it, but we were so pleasantly surprised to see some fabulous changes on our return. Both bathrooms and the kitchen have been updated and look great, and the whole house generally looks fresh and inviting with a very homely and relaxing feel. There is absolutely everything you could need to make your stay comfortable! We have already booked again for next year. The area itself is perfect for a quiet holiday but the rest of the island is easy to explore with a car. We have been visiting Menorca for years now and keep finding new places to visit.....just love it! Thank you Ruth for a lovely stay.
Thank you for your fantastic review and I am so pleased that you were happy with our upgrades
I am always looking to re invest in the apartment to maintain its appearance and comfort for my guests
I look forward to your booking for next year and thanks again for your feedback
Great apartment, spectacular setting.
The apartment is well-equipped and is situated 4 steps from the pool and 10metres from the sea. The resort contains all the amenities you need and Menorca has lots of interesting things to do. I
Thank you very much for your positive review and I am pleased that you had such a enjoyable holiday.
Once again the views did not disappoint.
Hope to see you again.
I stayed here and I have got to say one of the best places I have stayed. The apartment itself has everything you need. The views are absolutely amazing. The location that its in is also lovely there's a few nice bars and restaurants that are very good value for money and the food is lovely. There's also a bus service to take you to certain places and is very cheap. I for one will be booking to go back.
Thank you very much for this amazing review on your first visit to Menorca.
I am very pleased that the accommodation was everything you had hoped for and I look forward to you booking for next year
Lovely apartment in a lovely position and great to have the use of a pool
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment which was in a beautiful spot with lovely views over the bay and of course the pool right next to it. The apartment was in very good condition and well supplied with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Playas de Fornells was very pretty with beautiful views whereever you go. There were several restaurants which we tried and which were generally very good. Overall a lovely place and great for kids.
I am very grateful for such a positive review and am very pleased that you and your family had such a good time
Hoe that you will consider the apartment the next time that you visit Menorca
Special interest holidays:
Menorca is well known for it's Windsurfing, Sailing and Walking holidays as well as sites of Archaeological interest ("Talots")
The Bay of Tirant has 2 beaches a mere 2 minutes walk away although the main beach is accessed via a boardwalk which would not be suitable for guests with mobility problems.This beach can be accessed by car but the walk down to the beach is difficult for a wheelchair or pushchair.
To experience the best beaches that Menorca has to offer then a car is essential although the buses go to some of the more popular beaches.
Our 2 favourite beaches are at Santa Tomas and Cala Galdana.
The main airport at Mahon is a 30 minutes car journey away.To fully experience the Island then a car is recommended altough no journey should take no more than 35/45 minutes.
The beautiful harbour at Fornells,a must on any island tour,is a 5 minute car journey and the most beautiful town on the island,Mercadal is a 15 minutes car journey from the apartment.Monte torro, the highest point on the island with it's clifftop monastery is a 15 minute drive.The capital Mahon and the old capital Ciuedadella are approx 35 minutes drive away.The world renowed Widsurfing cente at Ses Salinas and the diving centre at Fornells are a 5 minute drive away.
On the development of Playas de Fornells we have 5 bars/Restaurants including the renowned restaurant "Cafe Del Nord" a 5 minute walk away but the walk to these is a steep one although downhill on your return journey.The 2 main,well stocked supermarkets, are again a 5 minute walk away.Near the entrance to the community we have "Margas" which serves the best cooked meat on the island and on a balmy summers evening is a 20 minute stroll away,although you may wish to take a taxi back up the hill,or a 5 minute car journey away.
Fornells is 5 minutes drive away and contains a bank,shops,bars and restaurants and has the most beautiful harbour on the island.
