Villa in San Jaime, Son Bou, Menorca
'Son Amar' is a traditional villa in the beautiful resort area of Son Bou, which has the largest beach on Menorca, a long sandy beach with safe bathing for children. There is also a good selection of bars, restaurants, water park, maze and water sports. The resort is not over developed on the beach front due to the protected wetlands behind the beach. The villa is situated in a quiet cul de sac with a mature garden and pine trees, a lovely private spot. The beach is a 15 minute walk or a few minutes drive. The main shopping and entertainment areas of Son Bou are a ten minute walk away, but the closest bar with a pool is about 200m away.

Home away from home
Beatiful villa in peaceful setting ! Villa is very well equipped and very comfortable. The view from the balcony is amazing. Very easy to get to the beach as well as local shops and restaurants. Highly recommend ! Real home away from home.
From the Owner
“The villa was brought for family holidays in the 1980's after we had spent a number of years driving every day from Cala'n Porter to the beach at Son Bou, which is undoubtedly the best beach on the island (we are biased!) I have holidayed on Menorca since I was 3 years old, my wife's first visit was 2 months after we met!. Our children have also been to Menorca almost every year. Having travelled widely, Menorca is a lovely familiar place to come back to - not too crowded, not changing too much between visits; a friendly and easy place to return to. Beach lovers will love the wide variety of beaches available, walkers will love the spring flowers, canoeists the secluded coves, there is history and culture in abundance. Disco and rave lovers; go to Ibiza!”
Activity and Interests
The resort of San Jaime (Son Bou) is based around the largest beach on the island; over 2km long. It is also possible to take a walk to San Thomas, in the next bay. San Jaime is connected to the rest of the island by two roads, making it ideal to explore the rest of the island.
The nearest airport is Mahon, which is about a 15 minutes drive away. There is a bus service throughout the island, but it is best explored by car. If not, it is possible to join excursions arranged by the hotels in the resort. Keen walkers can use the "Cami de Cavalls" coastal path to explore!
The nearest town is Alaior, 7km away. Mao (Mahon) is the island capital based around the large natural harbour which made the island an important port for the British fleet. The port is now home to many bars and restaurants, and an interesting collection of boats. The regular ferry service between Barcelona, Palma and Valencia stops here. At the other end of the island, the old capital Cuitadella is full of Spanish charm and well worth a visit.
There are two supermarkets in San Jaime, along with many tourist shops in the main complex near the hotels. Alaior has many shops and larger supermarkets and restaurants for evening meals. Check for timings for local Fiesta's - these should not be missed.

From the Owner
“The villa is on a quiet cul-de-sac, not far from the beach by car - or a 15 min walk. The villa is one of the original resort builds, so it is spacious on a large plot. Families can 'spread out' by using the front terrace, the side patio or even the roof, so you are not crammed into a small apartment. We don't have air conditioning, television, internet or phone connection - we aim to keep the villa simple, clean and calm - the way we like our holidays! For those desperate to tweet or update their status, there is good 3G coverage!”
