About Sheena Smith

Alan and I are retired general medical practitioners. We live in Scotland and have been enjoying family holidays in Menorca since 1973.

Sheena Smith purchased this villa in 1980

Why Sheena Smith chose Alaior

On our first visit to the island we simply fell in love with its peace and tranquility and enquired about purchasing a plot on which to build. That villa - Villa Arran - was not completed until 1980 but within a few years we wanted the pleasure af a swimming pool and so purchased the adjacent property which had ground attached and would allow us to build another villa with a pool situated centrally. This provided an opportunity for many happy family holidays and many friendships have been made as a result. In recent years, however, holiday makers prefer their own private swimming pools and so since 2006, to meet this need, the villas have been separated and a heated pool built in each.

What makes this villa unique

By booking our villas, families wishing to holiday together, can have their own villa with a pool and privacy but still be near to their friends.

Great heated pool. Lovely area.

  • 4 of 5

Very relaxing and very quiet area. If you want peace and quiet this is the place for you. Although not far from the village centre if you have walking difficulties better to hire a car. A taxi from the airport cost 20 euros and the same back to the airport. A most enjoyable experience of Villa Bute. Thank you both. Hopefully we will be returning next year.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from an 11night stay at villa Bute feeling totally refreshed,if you want peace and quiet with a lovely pool and villa then this is for you. At times all you could hear is the occasional buzz of the local insects whilst lying by the pool ,heaven,the villa has everything you might need to enjoy your stay and only 15 min taxi from the airport (19 euros cost)and 10 min stroll to the town and 5min from the main cave attraction on the island. The only real disappointment was the lack of the main English tv channels,being sports fans we were looking forward to watching the commonwealth games.Alan and Sheena were great to deal with and Sarah on the island will take care of linen and towel changes for you.There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and a couple of supermarkets,I would totally recommend this property .

Perfect peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our first holiday with our 9 month old son. We chose Menorca because of the short flight duration and British influence making it a safe choice.

Alan and Sheena were very nice to deal with and had no problems answering any of our questions. The Villa was a short easy 15 minute drive from the airport. The one way system in Calan Porter is a bit tricky but you soon get the hang of it. The villa was fairly easy to find and had a drive way although there is tons of on road parking.

The villa was very clean and a nice size for the three of us. The Kitchen was modern and well equipped with everything we needed. The property has two bathrooms which was handy as when our son was sleeping in the room with the ensuite we used the other bathroom.

The pool was huge! much bigger than we expected and lovely and warm. There are lots of sun loungers around the property and the barbecue was nice and clean.

The resort is fine if a little beige but the beach is lovely. There are three supermarkets which although a little more expensive than the larger ones in town are fine. We liked the binipreu by the airport.
