1 bedroom apartment in Cala en Porter, Menorca, ideal for couples
I'm originally from the Midlands in the UK and I bought the apartment in 2013 and have been investing in it by upgrading the interior over the last few years. I like to treat it as a home from home and hope that my guests appreciate the results. I try to go the extra mile with the service and facilities I provide in my apartment.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Owner chose Cala'n Porter
I love Menorca and in particular all of the south coast resorts. It is very uncommercialised, the locals are very friendly and I like the laid back atmosphere wherever you go. Cala en Porter is a lovely little resort, with everything you need close to hand, a great place to chill out and get away from it all. The apartment is named after my Mom, Jean Irene. She loved Menorca and we spent many a happy holiday there and have stayed all over the island over the last 30 years. Everyone I know who visits the island seems to instantly take a liking to it, as although it is Spanish, it still has an English feel to it, maybe due to the fact that it was ruled by the English several times in it's long history. Proof of which you will see in the architecture of both Mahon and the old capital Ciutadella. Being situated very close to the airport, it's easy to get to and is ideal for a relaxing break.
What makes this Apartment unique
There is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area, a beautiful beach, beautiful gardens and communal pools. The property is compact but has all the amenities and comforts you expect and need without feeling cramped. The large south-facing terrace is ideal for sun lovers. However, a large umbrella provides welcome relief to those who prefer to sit in the shade. Enjoy the air conditioning in the evening, always sleepless nights, because of the heat, a thing of the past. A beautiful modern interior, well presented and a little luxury, like a rainforest shower, a new integrated kitchen, a wireless speaker system, are waiting for you in San Juan Irene.

The small, exciting resort of Cala en Porter lies on the south coast of Menorca, attracting visitors from all over the world to laze on the fine white sands which cover the small beach in front of the resort. It is the largest resort in the Alaior district of Menorca, offering some lively nightlife for Menorcan standards, although it is not a rowdy destination by any means.
Protected by steep cliffs on either side, the Cala en Porter Beach slopes gently into the warm waters of the Mediterranean, creating the perfect, sheltered beach for both sunbathing and swimming. There are a number of small refreshment stalls on the beach, including a couple of bars, and there is a small train which can take you back up the steep hill towards the villas and rental apartments in Cala en Porter itself.
