About Peter or Christine

Owners Peter and Christine, married with two children and two grand children, are from South London.

We first visited Menorca, which is the quieter of the Balearic Islands, with our young children in the 1980's.

We immediately fell in love with the peaceful island, its friendly people, their culture, the history and of course the fabulous summer weather and gorgeous beaches and countryside.

We kept on returning to the island and eventually were able to enjoy owning our own holiday apartment.

Now over 25 years later, along with the now grown up family, we still love to spend summer holidays in our favourite resort of Son Bou.

Hasta la vista!

Peter or Christine purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Peter or Christine chose Balearic Islands

After several years renting holiday homes on the island, we decided to purchase an apartment in Son Bou, our favourite resort.

Son Bou is on the sunny south coast of Menorca, just 20 minutes from Mahon airport - it boasts a 2 Km long sandy beach, probably the best on the island.

The clean, safe and pleasant resort is great for a family beach holiday - just chilling out and relaxing, taking a break away from today's hectic pace of life.

Our south facing first floor apartment is located in the San Jaime Zone 3 complex which has a large rectangular swimming pool with a childrens' pool. The Zone 3 is the "Son Bou Gardens" apartments, which are nearest to Son Bou, between the resort and the Club San Jaime area.

What makes this apartment unique

Ideally located, very conveniently close to all of the resort amenities, and within a short walk of the fabulous Son Bou beach, San Jaime 172, our safe and sunny first floor end position apartment has views to the Mediterranean Sea.

Son Bou offers everything for an enjoyable family holiday - as demonstrated by our guest's comments and our many repeat bookings.

23/06/06 22:55 - Subject: Our Holiday at SJ172

Hello P and C, Sorry it has taken a week to update you on our fantastic holiday! We want to thank you once again for letting us use your apartment in Son Bou. We loved the sea views on the balcony, having breakfast and, at night, (Kids tucked in bed around 11.30) a drink, (or three!) on the balcony. Very private apartment and so amenable to everything. Thank you once again and hope to visit soon, Christine, Mark, Bradley and Emma H.

Fabulous apartment, place and holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic, this apartment provides everything that makes a great family holiday. It over looks the communal pool and is within a 5min walk from the beach, restaurants and shops including a fabulous bakery. The apartment it's self is very clean and comfortable and comes with a fully equipped kitchen which was important to me having a one year old baby. The owners made the process of booking the apartment very easy providing both details about the apartment and recommendation of places to go whilst on vacation.The only bad thing about this holiday was having to come home, serious holiday blues.

A fantastic appartment in a superb spot within the very pretty Son Bou Gardens. The listing description is very accurate and the corner location on the first floor makes for peace, quite and fanastic sea views with beautiful sunsets. The appartment is clean and well maintainedand the family owners are very nice, helpful people. I would recommend it to anyone. We just love it and keep going back each year. Safe beach and a nice resort we particularly like the Kitcat bar for their Sangraia and a Crabbies ginger beer and whisky. Also the Compostella restaurant for a steak from their wood fired BBQ and a table on their balcony as the sun goes down. Perfect!
