Es Castell, previously named Villa Carlos, is full of history and charm. One of the best locations on the island for summer evenings and lunch time meals in the town's side streets or down in the delightful harbour sides. The town's fishing harbour - Cales Fonts and has become a little haven of restaurants and bars (no loud music ) favoured by locals and tourists alike. A truely genuine atmosphere not found in beach tourist locations and which attracts people from these resorts from all over the island. Founded in Georgian times as a military town this influence can be seen in the town's architecture and layout. Es Castell is now the fashionable place for locals to live and this all adds up to make this a great place to visit or stay in.

Es Castell has every concievable thing you need within walking distance in the town and larger supermarkets at Sant Luis and Mahon are just a 10min drive away.

The two fishing harbours Cales Corb and Cales Fonts define the character of the town providing delightful water side promenades for daytime or evening strolls. With great Bars and Restaurants along the waterside and in the town's little side streets. Good selection of shops, mini supermarkets, banks (inc ATMs), Bars and Restaurants within a few minutes walk.

Carrer Gran , the main shopping road has a number of Bar-Restuarants serving good value set menus day and evening and will be lower priced than those on the water front.

Cosmopolitan Mahon is also close by (25 minute walk/ 10 minute drive).

The airport is a 15 minute drive away and beautiful beaches between 15-30 minutes.

About The Owner

The apartment was bought as a holiday home by our family in 2002, and we all take regular trips out to Menorca each year!!

My stepdad Ewen and mum Debbie are keen boaters, so their holiday excusions usually involve the water, whereas I have two young children so our excursions are usually beach or swimming pool related, including trips to the local zoo and waterparks!

When my mum and I manage to escape the boys and children....we like to venture to Mahon for some retail therapy and a glass of sangria!

We have decided to start renting the property out....so you too can share the beauty of this gorgeous island and our overseas home!

My brother and his girlfriend are in their twenties and they also love it here....they enjoy the more historic side of Menorca island, closely followed by a visit to the trendy and quirky cocktail bars and restaurants that often play live music and that are really atmospheric!

Menorca as a island is fantastic and there is plenty to suit everyone, trust me!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Es Castell

Our two floor apartment is typically Menorcan with tiled floors, spanish furnishings, wooden shutters and unspoilt views!! We love using it as a holiday base or spending the entire day boat-spotting or sunbathing on the balconies!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is at the entrance of the world famous Mahon port...so its amazing to see exactly what boats are coming in and out....a range of sail boats, super yaughts and rowing boats pass by.....not to mention the huge passenger ferry that my kids love spotting coming about the sky-line!

The apartment is situated in quiet privately owned complex which is peaceful and quiet all of the time....the perfect place!!

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

My partner and myself stayed in this lovely house in Sept 2017 for one week, the house was spotless when we arrived and had everything we needed, the view from the balcony over Cala Padera was just perfect and the lovely harbour of Cala Fonts was only a short walk away, the owners gave us all the information we needed about house and any questions that we had they were very quick to reply, would we go again ? most definitely ! If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday then this is the place to go.

Home from home with fabulous view.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a fabulous week in this lovely little house. The view over the water was beautiful and we really enjoyed eating outside watching the boats, including the odd liner, passing by our quiet cove. The easy parking was a huge bonus, and the ten minute walk to numerous bars and restaurants made this a perfect location. The modern washing machine and excellent shower were appreciated,! I will definitely come here again, maybe for winter walking to try out the woodburner! Thanks for a great stay

Apartment with a great view to help you chill.

  • 4 of 5

Not the largest apartment you could find, but it certainly packs a punch with its view.

It also has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Good location with a cafe/restaurant 5 mins walk. With Cala Fonts dining only 15 mins walk, great meals and good times.

Supermarkets, cafe's and bars all within 15 mins walk.

Bus stop to Mahon also 12-15 mins walk away.

Can't be bad.

We had a wonderful stay here.Made even nicer by the lovely accomodating hosts. The apartment was well located and very well equipped too. We especially loved our little cove opposite the apartment teaming with fish and warm and crystal clear waters.Also watching all the boats going in and out on the terraces.A home from home. We didnt want to leave. Many Thanks.

In a quiet location great for exploring the island.

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent value for money. It was clean provided enough sleeping space for 6 although it would be crowded.

The washing machine was a great bonus especially with 3 kids.

Kitchen was very small but equipped well.

We ate it outside watching the boats go by.

Only down side was the extreme heat at night the ceiling fan gave little respite and the mosquitoes we all got bitten.

The apartment was in a quiet part of the town but a short stroll from the harbour. We hired a car and got out and about around the island visiting lots of different beaches, Cituadella, Mahon and the zoo.

The cove at the front of the apartment was lovely to swim and snorkel in but some times you had to be careful of the jelly fish.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Owner's Response: Hi, thankyou for your feedback! Summer is so hot and we also found the heat to be hard at night with our family. We are already in discussions about better fans. We hope you had a fab holiday! Xxx

Bay of Mahon - Es Castell is a charming seaside town on Menorca’s southeast coast. It’s a relaxed, peaceful place that revolves around its 2 harbours – Calas Fons and Calas Corb. These two spots are where you’ll find laid-back bars, rustic eateries and souvenir shops selling ornate ceramics. Along both harbours there are views across a sweeping bay, while a 15-minute drive brings you to Menorca’s capital, Mahon.

Fiesta of Sant Jaume - This annual fiesta builds up to the feast day of James the Greater, Spain’s patron saint. It’s a wild, 24/7 week – you can see a paella cook-off in the main square, walk to a foam party at Cala Padera, or listen to swing music at Calas Fons. The highlight every year is the jaleo – or commotion – where beautiful Menorcan horses gallop through the main square.

Daytrips to Mahon - Mahon is just up the road. This is the centre of Menorca’s 2 specialities – gin and shoes. There’s the 18th-century distillery where you can try free samples, and the Industrias Artesanas, a shoe factory where you can watch the fine leather shoes being made. Just a short stroll away is La Mola Fortress, a mid-18th-century Spanish fortress that’s in very good condition.
