Apartment in Cala'n Porter, Menorca - Overlooking the Beach
A beautiful two bedroom apartment with thick whitewashed walls and all-in-one living area with modern kitchen opening off a terrace from which you can sunbathe and enjoy open-air dining all day long while being entertained by the activities on the beach and the yachts arriving and leaving Cala'n Porter cove. Swim and snorkle in the aquamarine waters, eat at the beachside cafés and bars, hire a pedalo or kayak to venture further out into the Mediterranean while still remaining within the protective arms of the two headlands that embrace this wonderful cove.
NB: Because of access via multiple steps, this apartment is not suitable for people with a mobility problem. The steps are also the reason why we cannot accept liability for babies, or for children less than 6 years old.

'We had such a wonderful holiday and largely in part because of all the accessories in the apartment such as beach mats and adaptors. The apartment was truly comfortable, cool, spacious and oh my goodness the view from the terrace is breathtaking!' Rose K.

What a lovely apartment with gorgeous views! This is the main reason we booked this apartment and we were not disappointed. The apartment is built into the side of the rocks half way up the steps which go from the beach to the resort. This is great as it means you only have half the amount of steps to go down to get to the beach. The apartment is very well equipped, has a very comfortable king size bed, and things like a hair dryer, full oven and a dishwasher really make a difference. There are also plenty of books and videos, plus plenty of guide books to the island. The location is good as it's only about 15 minutes by car or taxi to Mahon and also the beautiful harbour at Es Castell (Cales Fonts). The local village up the road Sant Climent is also charming. We were a little concerned about the lack of air conditioning but were very pleased to have very comfortable sleeps at night as we were able to create a through draft with the shutters closed (secure as lockable) and the windows open at night. Would recommend!
tasteful appartment with world class view
We were satisfied in every way here, in this appartment, which is perched halfway up a cliffside. After waking up in the morning following a good night's sleep, for here we slept like babies on very comfortable bedding, you step down into a bright white lounge area that gives onto a view that can only be classed as sublime. A bottle of wine and some nibbles awaited us on arrival, a thoughtful gesture that went a long way. We were very happy to come back to this appartment every day after our outings to Mahon, which is just up the road if you want culture, good restaurants and shopping. We also found the beaches that start with "Bini" very beautiful indeed (Binidali... Biniasfuller...) and they are also reachable by car in udner fifteen minutes. everything we needed was at hand. The appartment is very well equipped. We also enjoyed perusing the bookshelves and watching a few good films in the evening.
