Beautiful, recently modernized villa set in the lush green surroundings of the Nature Reserve which is a designated area of outstanding beauty and registered on the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. This 2 storey villa has 2 floors with the bedrooms on the ground floor leaving the living space upstairs to take in the gorgeous views. Relax on one of the 2 terraces, partly shaded. With no through traffic this is the ideal place for a peaceful retreat, also for those with children an ideal to roam and explore in safety. There are walks and trails through the Park, with an abundance of wild flowers. there are only 2 other properties visible though 1 is at a distance and we are mostly shielded by trees from the other.

About sean sainsbury
My name is Sean and I fell in love with Menorca many years ago. This passion for the island inspired me to buy my dream home in the nature parc and I plan to live there in the future. At present I live and work in Asia and so I am opening my home for others to enjoy and hope they hear the same amazing experiences I have when I am in Menorca.
sean sainsbury purchased this Villa in 2013
Why sean sainsbury chose Mahón
When I first came to the Island in 2007 it was love at first sight. I fell in love with the tranquility, the spotless beaches, both hidden and public. The chance to walk on trails and see very few people whilst enjoying the sea views and country alike. Knowing I could be very happy here I didn't hesitate to buy this villa when I saw what it had to offer. Close to the charming village of Es Grau with its friendly bars and restaurants or a little further to Mahon with its plethora of shops and restaurants, Harbour and old cobbled streets.
What makes this Villa unique
The peacefulness of the Parc is unbelievable sometimes. You can just sit and gaze for hours at the birds flying overhead with the sound of crickets the accompanying sound. There is no thru traffic with only a few neighbours passing infrequently, You don't have to worry about being overlooked as you sit in your swimwear!

Spacious villa in nature reserve, close to Mahon.
The villa is in a beautiful setting, in the Albufera nature reserve which is brilliant for bird watching and a walk in the countryside. Very quiet, silent even, except when jets go over as unfortunately it’s on the flight path from Mahon airport. However, planes are not particularly frequent.
The pool is a decent size and depth and not overlooked at all, so ideal for those that like to consider swimming costumes optional!
Some of the outdoors furnishings and decor were looking a bit ‘tired’, but we went in September at the end of what was probably a busy season. We loved sitting on the terrace, watching the birds and enjoying the dark night sky which was great for stargazing.
Inside the kitchen is well equipped and the owners kindly left a few of the previous visitors surplus supplies, so we didn’t need to buy washing up liquid, coffee or cooking oil for example.
Communication with owner/managers was excellent and would definitely recommend if you want a peaceful location less than ten minutes drive from the unspoilt beach at Es Grau.
Beautiful villa in a quiet and picturesque area
We really enjoyed our stay. The villa is very spacious and the sitting area and bedrooms are nicely decorated. We enjoyed playing in the pool every day and were treated to a visit from a tortoise in the garden. Es Grau is a wonderful area to stay, the beach, the village and natural park are all a highlight to any holiday in Menorca.
The villa was very nice
Booked a week here with our four grandchildren we picked the villa for its rural area so we would not have noise and traffic and we was not disappointed. We sat and watched the moon come over the big hill in front of the villa and gazed at the stars. The pool was big and wonderful. And I would like to say a BIG thank you to Sarah who looks after the villa we had a problem with a burst water pipe outside due to work ongoing with a new water main Sarah dealt with this matter very promptly and within 1/2 hour it was mended. On our last day one of our grandchildren fell ill with a ear infection and required a visit to the doctor I phoned Sarah to ask for directions to a doctor and was given directions by Sarah really helpful individual and a credit to todovillas
Wonderful villa, fantastic location, brilliant pool!
What a lovely place to stay! Lots of space if your travelling with kids, but doesn’t feel to big for a couple. Pool was perfect size and temperature, very refreshing on a hot afternoon! Kitchen is well equipped, and for uk travellers plenty of uk tv channels available for lazy evenings.
For the nature lovers, lots of birds flying around, every lizard species on the island all living around the villa, beautiful views of the nature reserve, birdsong and frogs calling in the evening.
Couple of pieces of advice, make sure when you buy food to buy enough. It’s a 10-15 minute drive to the nearest market, not too far but when your settling down for a night you don’t want to have to nip out for some snacks. Also, in the evening if the lights are on, shut the windows! Or the mozzies from the reserve will get in, but the air con works great so this isn’t really an issue.
The owner was very helpful, we had a couple of queries before we travelled and while we were there and he responded very quickly with all the info we needed.
All in all a great place for a holiday. We will definitely be coming back!
Perfect location for wildlife, the beach and pool
We stayed for a week - 2 families with toddlers, and the house was well equipped for family life. The pool was lovely, and Es Grau only a 5 minute drive away, which we visited most evenings. The surrounding wildlife really is wonderful and incredibly quiet considering it’s only a 15 minute drive from the airport.
Sean was a great host and was incredibly helpful in making sure we had a restful holiday. We’ll be sure to return!
Really enjoyed our stay... peaceful and great location! We will return again...
