About Lydia and Fred

We are a retired couple, living in North Devon and visiting Menorca during the summer months.

Lydia and Fred purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Lydia and Fred chose Es Mercadal

Menorca has changed very little in appearance in the last 35 years since we first started visiting. We loved the north coast with the small villages and farms and thought it unspoilt, so unlike the Spanish Costas!

We love the fact that you can easily travel around to different locations and beaches and swim in the beautiful clear blue sea.

What makes this apartment unique

Our holiday home is in an ideal location. The sea is so close that you can lie in bed and hear the waves and smell the sea. Maremar has extensive gardens and the benefit of two swimming pools plus a baby pool.

Our home is actually single storey, so although the classification is an apartment, it’s actually looks like a mini semi-detached villa!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your apartment, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, loved Menorca and will definitely be returning in the future, we thought Playas de Fornells was idyllic.

We arrived back last night and had a wonderful time. Maremar is a lovely place and the views wonderful. We had such a relaxing time and managed to see a lot of the island. We've fallen in love with the island and plan to return!

A & J 2014



We got back safely to the UK after a fabulous week in Menorca! Firstly the apartment was lovely, had everything we needed and was in the most beautiful quiet area but still close enough to everything and everywhere we wanted to explore. The weather was glorious and it was so nice to have the pool to cool off in.

Thank you for being so very helpful with the area, apartment, car hire and info in the apartment too. We really couldn't have asked for a nicer holiday and break away and definitely would love to go back again. C and M xx 2014



We had another lovely restful week at Maremar, the apartment was spotless as usual and it was a much-needed break. Many thanks, D & S 2014

Ideal accommodation in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing holiday; the accommodation is ideally placed for good restaurants, bars and the beach with a handy bar next door. Car parking is perfect with plenty of space for the hire car.

The kitchen is well equipped if you wish to self-cater and the pool could not be more conveniently placed. Overall, the ideal quiet holiday retreat.
