About the Owner
Hi. My husband and I live in the UK. We have five children that are grown up now, but they spent all their childhood holidays in Menorca. We now have ten grandchildren and they have followed in their parents footsteps of holidaying in our villa.The reason we have spent so many years holidaying in Menorca is the fact that Calan Porter has a lovely beach, which is very safe for small children, the flight is only one hour fifty minutes and the transfer time is approx 10 min. The Menorcan people love children and they are welcome in all the bars and restaurants and nothing is too much trouble to make you feel welcome. We bought this property and refurbished it throughout to make it feel like a home from home environment and very comfortable.

We as a family had a fantastic time in this villa. Transfer time from the airport was excellent, restaurants and bars just a short walk away. No need for a car as everything was within easy reach for a great family holiday.
From the Owner
“We bought the property in Calan Porter as it is an ideal base for exploring the island. The resort is very safe and child friendly. The villa is approx 5 mins walking distance from all the amenities, but still in a quiet sheltered spot. The beach is within walking distance and all the restaurants and bars are within easy reach.”
Activity and Interests
The villa is under 5 mins walk from the town and approx 8 mins walking distance to the beach and approx 2 mins by car. All the amenities, shops, restaurants, bars and supermarkets are a few mins walk away. There are many gorgeous beaches to choose from around the island. Calan Porter is in a safe secluded bay which is very safe for children. Crystal clear turquoise water makes it ideal for snorkeling or diving. Two beach bars offering drinks tapas and take away food.
Mahon airport is approx 12km and takes about 10 mins in a taxi. Car hire is not essential but is an advantage to see the lovely Menorcan countryside and the many beaches that it has to offer. Mahon harbour is approx 15 min drive where you will find restaurants and bars. Take a stroll along the harbour to see all the lovely boats that are moored there.
The nearest town is San Clemente where there is a jazz club open to the public every Tuesday. It is very entertaining. A bowling alley has recently opened in Son Bou and is approx 20 mins drive and there are two water parks on the island. One is in Son Bou and the other in Cuitadella approx 35 mins car journey. There is a market in Mahon Tue and Sat. The port of Mahon has many restaurants and bars. Cala Fonts is also very picturesque. Fort Marlborough is steeped in history and worth a visit.
There are many bars and restaurants to choose from in the resort and several offer evening entertainment. There are three supermarkets and they do offer a delivery service. There are car hire agents, a hairdresser, chemists and a bank.
The whole island is child friendly and it is aimed at families, childre are welcome in bars and restaurants.
There is the Calan Porter fiesta normally the second week of September. The whole weekend is like a party. King Neptune arrives on the beach and gives the children presents. You have the horses and carnival parading through the town. There are Spanish dancers to entertain you and all the bars participate with special activities. The end of the Fiesta is celebrated with a fantastic fireworks display. An enjoyable weekend all round.
