About the property

Villa in Playas de Fornells, Menorca

A charming, privately owned 2 bedroomed garden villa set in the flower and cactus gardens of the Playas de Fornells complex. The apartment has a view over

over the rugged coastline and the pretty horseshoe bay of Cala Tirant. As well as having great bars and restaurants close by, the apartment is just a 20 minute walk to the beautiful port of Fornells, famous for its excellent fish restaurants.

About The Owner

We live in Mumbles, South Wales. We have 2 sons and 3 grandsons. We have owned our property in Playas de Fornells since 1986 and now that we are retired like to visit Menorca as often as possible.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1980

Why The Owner chose Minorca (Menorca)

We bought a property in Menorca because we love the island and also love the fact that it is only a two hour flight from the UK and Fornells is only half an hour's drive from Mahon airport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a super time and loved your apartment which is ideal for us. I will keep your details as we would definitely like to stay again.

Just a quick note to say thank you very much from all of us for letting us stay at your apartment. We had a fantastic 2 weeks and are already desperate to return. The saving starts now!

Just to say we've returned from a wonderful two weeks in Menorca! It's a beautiful island, so quiet compared to Mallorca, and we loved the Garden Villa and Playas de Fornells - it's a lovely resort.

Just wanted to email to let you know that we had a great break in Menorca & loved your place. It worked out perfectly for us, having plenty of space and being so close to the pool, bars and beach.

This was our first time staying at the Villa and I could not fault it.

The location is perfect....the shared pools are literally on the door step, the restaurants, bars and shops are less then 5 mins walk and the beach a short walk.

The Villa has everything you will need and a little bit more, inside and out it is clean and well maintained, there is a lovely sun terrace perfect for relaxing or having a BBQ.

Stayed with 2 children aged 2 and 7, they both loved it. Had been told in advance about the number of steps but we didn't find them a problem at all.

We enjoyed it so much we have just booked to go again next year and have already recommended to friends and family.

Home from home! I have been staying at various apartments on this complex for 15 years, but this is by far the best for facilities and location. Everything I could possibly need is there. Sun beds, parasols even bucket and spades are left for your use, and having stayed there for three years now, I notice none of these facilities are abused. There is no aircon, but the bedrooms have lovely big ceiling fans which keep you cool even in August . The apartment couldn't be closer to a shared kiddies pool and a larger adults pool. The beach is short walk away, with accessibility to a larger sandy beach over a wooden bridge. If you go there take a walk around the complex to see the beautiful gardens. There are about 7 restaurants in Playa de Fornells itself and numerous lovely restaurants in Fornells itself. I've booked my return trip already.
