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.

Excellent family holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our family holiday at Villa Sol del Este after a really super week and thoroughly enjoyable stay. The villa matched the description very accurately and it is no exaggeration to say the views from the property are gorgeous and the house very spacious indeed. The extensive gardens are beautiful and there are so many corners and terraces to sit out we were spoilt for choice. Above all we appreciated the position so close to the coast and views of La Mola fortress and within easy walking distance of the lovely harbour at Cales Fonts and even not too far a stetch to walk to Mahon within about half an hour if desired.

Natalia was extremely helpful thoughout the booking process and responded very quickly and efficiently to all our questions, everything being handled in a no- fuss, clear, simple way.

I would have no hesitation in recommending to friends or relatives looking for a big family home in a beautiful and unspoilt location.

Views, area, villa were just perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations with us, youngest being 23 and oldest 82, a total of 8. There was plenty of room and we never felt on top of one another. Views are amazing and not too far to walk to a little restaurant and small supermarket, but with Es Castell and Mahon within easy distance there are plenty of shops and eateries handy. We had a fantastic holiday.

Amazing villa with a beautiful garden and great pool.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa for 11 of us to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The villa was amazing having good sized bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, large lounge and dining room as well as a lovely sitting room on the top floor.

The balcony on the first floor had a table and chairs which was large enough to seat all of us. On the top floor was a balcony which was a wonderful place to sit first thing in the morning watching the boats going into Mahon.

Outside there were tables and chairs to sit and have meals as well as enough sunbeds for all of us. We spent many hours in the pool playing volley ball and other pool games. It was lovely to sit in the garden when we wanted to have some quiet time away from the games around the pool.

All of us have had a fantastic time as the villa had everything we needed and we were sad to leave this morning. Natalia the owner was extremely helpful and accommodating in the lead up to the holiday as well as keeping contact with us while we were there.

I would recommend the villa for a great family holiday.

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.

Happy to have you back any time! Have a great Fall, Natalia

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!
