The Menorcan Farmhouse is the ultimate holiday get-away for large families & for those searching for complete privacy and tranquillity on the peaceful island of Menorca. The farmhouse is of traditional rural architecture with a central front porch area with three arches and a large terrace surrounding the house with amazing countryside views.

Magical vacation in menorca

  • 5 of 5

Alfurinet is a wonderful, welcoming, unique place... It is surrounded by beautiful farmlands, tucked away with beautiful views. The house is very cozy, well thought out with elegant taste, it has everything you might need, and even more. In just a few minutes you feel quite at home.

You can enjoy fresh produce from the incredible vegetable garden everyday: tomatoes, melons, eggplant...

There are activities for everybody: swimming pool, bicycles, kayaks, home theater,ping pong... and of course: Mediterranean beaches.

Everything is well organized and maintained. The caretakers make sure that you have a great stay.

We highly highly recommend Alfurinet to anybody who is interested in enjoying the menorcan farmland and beaches, and really looking to get away.

Absolutely beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this villa! We are three families who holiday together a lot and this has definitely been the best we have stayed in. The rooms were huge, spacious and very comfortable. The interior was beautiful and the house was so well stocked with everything a family could need from kids toys, beach accessories, bikes kayaks, outdoor table tennis, the list is endless... Antonia is a fantastic housekeeper and lovely lady who kept the house immaculately clean and was so helpful and welcoming, nothing was ever a problem. She cooked meals for us on numerous occasions which were both delicious and very good value. The swimming pool was beautiful and the kids just loved playing in it and adults enjoyed the beautiful loungers over looking the beautiful countryside around it. The pool has a gate down to it so this is reassuring if you have young children.

Vadim was very helpful and efficient, providing all the necessary information we required regarding the property, we definitely want to return! Many thanks for an amazing holiday!

Fantastic property and location

  • 5 of 5

It's always difficult to please everyone with a party of 9 adults and 2 young children - 4 generations of our family ranging from age 79 to just 2. This villa over-delivered in every respect. Stunning location, beautifully maintained and so well equipped we lacked for nothing: it was truly a home from home. If anything, the listings for this property under sell it. Antonia, the housekeeper, came for a few hours every day to freshen up the rooms, and was always more than helpful. Unfortunately none of our party speak Spanish so we had to communicate predominantly via a translation app on our iPad, but we got along famously. Antonia cooked for us for 5 of our 14 nights - fantastic meals, really wholesome food and really good value for money. She effortlessly catered for a vegetarian and a gluten-free diet. The pool was lovely, immaculately maintained, and just far enough away from the house, with a gate, to make it ideal with young children. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough.

wonderfull !

  • 5 of 5

We are three families who have holidayed together in Menorca before. The farmhouse more than exceeded our expectations. The facilities are excellent and the house itself absolute luxury.

We had very rare bad weather during our stay but it did not matter, we were able to cycle to the beach, and take lazy walks to the spectacular private beach. The children were in there element and able to roam free collecting watermelons from the gardens for breakfast.

Antonia cooked for us on several occasions , the food was excellent and extremely economical, the house was kept spotless.

We hope to return next year and have already recommended the farmhouse to several !

L'ametlla del valles


  • 5 of 5

This propiety is our family holiday place.

Each year we rent a house to spend a vacation week all the family, grandchildren, daughters, sons and grandparents. Having spent several houses in the Balearic Islands this farmahouse is undoubtedly the best.

The owner hospitality , the facilities that he offers in terms of service, arrival etc... are unbeatable, magnificent clean, well-maintained ...

It is a perfect place in the middle of nature, near to the beach ideal for many tipologies of rental people. For families with children and babies because is near to the beach, big rooms for the cottage, share rooms..... For families who want to share together days there’re different kitchens and a mini apartment isolated, for families with young because they have bikes, kayacs, home cinema, ipod’s, communication on the internet, ...


Thanks for all Vadim, we come back !!!

An outstanding place

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a house to rent for 12 people for a week in Spring 2010, I have been visiting in January many large houses in Menorca. No one can compete against this one. Its is outstanding inside and outside. Top quality, large bedrooms, beautiful terraces around the house, splendid kitchen where we spent all a lot of time : Markets in Cuitadella have fishes, vegetables and fruits at reasonable prices !

We enjoyed biking and swimming. Peaceful, perfect.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Mahon International Airport at 50 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Ciutadella at 12 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 2 Kilometres Car: necessary

Alfurinet Farmhouse is located 25 minutes drive from the historic harbour town of Ciutadella and 12 minutes from the wonderous sandy beaches of Algaiarens and La Vall. The property of the house reaches down to the beautiful Menorcan coastline and the rocky beach of Alfurinet. The town is architecturally very beautiful with a centrally located cathedral and thus it is advisable to conduct a guided tour along the narrow streets to visit the old cathedral and the homes of the aristocrats. In the town you can rent a boat for the day, arrange for a scuba diving lesson, or settle down for a Menorcan lunch on one of the harbour restaurants. The island is also rich in history, offering visitors the opportunity of visiting ancient sacred sites & archaeological museums. Menorca is also great for coastal walking, mountain biking and horse riding. The house is a great base for either of these activities which can be arranged prior to arrival.
