About the property

Villa Sol Del Este is a spacious Menorca holiday villa set on three levels, with beautiful, rich lawns, ample parking and beautiful views over the quaint village of Es Castell to the sea.

The house itself offers comfortable accommodation both internally and externally. The house is furnished to a high standard in an intriguing mixture of stylish and antique. There is air conditioning/heating in all the bedrooms.

The Villa offers a very safe environment for younger children, the garden being entirely walled. Very good bedroom/ bathroom arrangements for large parties. The pool, within shady surrounds, is an excellent focal point for both children and adults.

The front entrance to Villa Sol Del Este opens into a hallway with a staircase to the upper levels. On the ground floor of Villa Sol Del Este are two twin bedrooms sharing a bathroom and a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. At the end of the hall a door leads out to the pool terrace and gardens. On the first floor this Menorcan villa has a lounge/dining room with patio doors allowing plenty of natural light, opening onto a covered terrace. From here steps lead down to the private pool. Adjacent to the living room is a separate kitchen, which is beautifully tiled.

On this same floor is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom, a twin bedroom, a single bedroom and a shared bathroom. Further stairs lead to the upper level of this Es Castell holiday villa where there is a second lounge with patio doors to the roof terrace.

Outside Villa Sol Del Este, the pool terraces are walled to give a good deal of privacy. Slightly raised from the pool area itself, there is an attractive stone barbecue and seating area, great for alfresco dining. The villa also enjoys ample, rich lawns with scattered flowers and palm trees.

We have enjoyed Minorca for the last 30 years. It is such a unique island in the Mediterranean sea!

NATALIA purchased this villa in 1997

Why NATALIA chose Es Castell

This property is located in a unique place in Minorca, overlooking the entrance to the harbour of Mahon. There are few houses in this area, and no more houses can be built, so this is was a unique opportunity to buy a very special house.

What makes this villa unique

Sitting on the terrace at sunset while seeing the boats going back to port is such a great experience! The garden of the house and the swimming pool are also magnificent. We found ancient stone ruins which we restored and placed in the garden, just close to the olive trees....probably the best place of the house to relax! The 3000 sqm of the gardens really allow you to hide from everyone else, even if you share the house with family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tutto è andato bene... la casa e' sicuramente adatta ad ospitare più gruppi familiari come il nostro. Ed ha un bellissimo giardino ed anche la bella terrazza dove abbiamo cenato a base di barbecue tutte le sere! L' isola ci è' piaciuta e le nostre spiaggie preferite sono state Cavalleria e Saint Bou (veramente una spiaggia meravigliosa). Grazie ancora!

Lovely property in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

The villa was ideal for an annual holiday with friends. It was all we had hoped for with plenty of space, wonderful views, lovely gardens and pool and all clean and well maintained. Natalia was excellent at responding to emails before and after we booked, and when there was a problem with the internet in the villa she made sure this was quickly dealt with. Being on the edge of the development meant that the views from the balconies were super yet there's a small shop for essentials and a very good café open for lunch and dinner within a few minutes walk. There are many restaurants about 15 minutes walk from the villa at Cales Fonts and Es Castell is also an easy walk from where the half hourly bus to Mahon departs. It's an easy walk to Fort Marlborough from the villa and the Cami de Cavalls continues on from here and it's possible to walk parts of the south east coast and then catch a bus back to Mahon. In Mahon there's an excellent walking tour starting from the bus station at 11.00am, harbour tours and a daily organ recital in the Santa Maria church at 1.00pm. Buses to all over the island leave from the bus station, Ciutadella was great for a day visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot Jenny, we are glad you had a good time in Villa sol del Este with your friends. Not many people know that October is a wonderful month to enjoy Menorca, so I am glad you discovered it. I am really sorry that the internet stopped working, luckily we could quickly sort it out. Happy to have you back any time! Have a great Fall, Natalia

Beautiful house, perfect location for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Sol deal Este as it was perfect for our large family group. Tons of space inside and lots of separate terraces and outside spaces to sit. The house was very well equipped, we had everything we needed including lots of things for the pool and we particularly appreciated the air conditioning in the bedrooms as it was very hot. The bathrooms were numerous and spacious! The log bbq was wonderful and the pool just perfect. The gardens of the house were huge and really pretty - lots of places to sit in the shade as well as loads of space for sunbathing etc. Also the location of the villa was perfect as it was a short stroll down to Calas Fonts with all the bars and cafe's so people could come and go there without needing a car. There was a nice cafe and small shop very near the house too.

All in all I would strongly recommend this house for a perfect holiday in Menorca for a large group.

And finally Natalia was so helpful - she happily changed our dates when we learnt we had a baby on the way and then provided everything we needed for the baby, she was also most welcoming and helpful.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for our group. The accommodation was as detailed with lots of beds for everyone and so much space both inside and out!

The location is ideal and so quiet and peaceful and only a short walk to some great restaurants in the harbour. The views from the villa are superb.

Natalia is the perfect host, do not hesitate to book this villa you will not be disappointed!

Spacious, clean villa, with excellent view.

  • 5 of 5

We had two weeks in the villa. Five adults and two children (aged 4 and 2). The house is ideal for that number. The garden is spacious for playing frisbee. The pool is small ("no diving") but was great for plunging into, and was blissful for adults and children. It is kept very clean by the maintenance staff. The house is air-conditioned and has full kitchen facilities. Our only mistake was to go for two weeks rather than four.

Comfortable Family Villa in Menorca conveniently located with impressive views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at his villa for two weeks with our family during the end of July and beginning of August 2016. We had a great time facilitated by this villa. It provided plenty of space for all our family including 4 children ranging from 13 to 2 years. All the rooms were spacious and well furnished with air conditioning. Having 4 bathrooms between us made life much easier and there was constant hot water! The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses and cutlery. The dishwasher was new and the property was equipped with two fridges which was good for lots of cold drinks and ice creams. The property is on three levels with a terrace with a wonderful view of the entry to Mahon port. We ate out on this terrace most days of the holiday and it was pleasant to sit out every evening. The top terrace is an adult zone and is signposted not suitable for children. Stair gates were provided on the stairs and the terrace. The villa has a large garden with palm and olive trees with plenty of room for the children to run around. The property is secure with gates that can be locked and surrounded by high walls.

The pool was well used by all of us especially by the children. It is surrounded by palm trees and "real" grass (not artificial). The pool was cleaned twice a week and the bed linen was changed after the first week. There were plenty of sunbeds available and tables and chairs available at the front of the villa. There is a BBQ which we used frequently.

The villa was only about 15 minutes from Mahon airport and about 10 minutes walk into Es Castell where there are plenty of bars and restaurants.

The only adverse comments would be that some of the furnishings were looking a "bit tired" e.g. the sofa was stained and needed cleaning. The bedroom nearest the garage smelled damp and the air conditioner dripped water on to the bed in the second downstairs bedroom.

But all in all these comments do not detract which was an excellent place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this very descriptive and positive comment. I am sure future guests will appreciate reading about all the details you provide. We will make sure to buy a new sofa for next year so that the whole house is up to the standards. All the Best, Natalia

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful villa and location. We went to celebrate 4 family birthdays and spend time relaxing and making memories and this villa made this easy to achieve. The villa was clean with everything you could need. If anything further was required Natalia was able to provide it without delay. I would most definitely recommend the villa to all and cannot thank Natalia and her team for the great service they provided.
