Villa 'Olivas Silvestres' is a newly built privately owned detached luxury villa, with air-conditioning set in its own fully enclosed south facing garden. Quiet residential area, short walk to the beach. Binibeca is a popular resort. At one end Binibeca Vell, a resort in the style of an old fishing village, which offers shops and restaurants. At the other end Cala Torret, offering restaurants, shops and also a dive school. The beach at Binibeca is a lovely family beach with gently shelving sands in a quiet cove, offering safe bathing for all the family, with sunbed and toilet facilities.

About Amanda Keen

Olivas Silvestres (Wild Olives) is our home. We built the villa ourselves from conception to completion over 4 years. Finished to English quality, with typical Menorquin style, using local mares stone for ceilings & dry stone walls surrounding the property, and the biggest pool planning would allow!

As a family we enjoy peace and quiet...with the option of walking to local restaurants

and beaches when we would like a little company or for people watching only!

Open wild country extends from the rear of the plot. Don't be surprised to see Donkeys for a carrot lunch, or tortoises - tomatoes being their favourite Tapa ...

Amanda Keen purchased this villa in 2008

Why Amanda Keen chose San Luis

We sailed to Menorca in 2000 fell-in love with this beautiful, un-spoilt Island. After searching and finding the perfect building plot in Binibeca we began to follow our dream....

The living area divides either end, making the perfect space for families, including a grandparent end! Or privacy for two families, or friends!

Menorca is our favorite of the Balearic Islands...we are keen sailors/walkers and enjoy cycling around the wonderful cycle paths that are now all over the Island. Bike hire is available at a number of places...

What makes this villa unique

Olivas Silvestres is definately home from home...we have included all the comforts and convenience one now expects whilst away, including wifi...We love cooking and entertaining family and friend's in our peaceful location. We have built the largest pool we could get planning for and it is here we love spending quiet, lazy days with the people we love!

We love strolling down to the beautiful, safe beach for a swim or lunch under the umbrellas in the best beach restaurant/bar on the Island.

Next to this is the sweetest harbour, home to Binibeca diving. Great easy water access for swimming or snorkeling. Bar/Restaurant open all day in high season.


Exceptional! 5/5 -

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at Olivas Silvestres. The villa has everything you need and more, well equipped, clean, comfortable set in a quiet corner, a complete escape from the stresses of day to day life back home.

The beach, restaurants and small shops all in walking distance. We had a car but only

used it for shopping at the larger supermarkets, we never felt the need to move far away from the villa.

All in all a wonderful holiday and we hope to return in the future, Many thank to Mandy and John for sharing their home.

Beautiful Villa, Fabulous Pool

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Menorca for 14 years and have stayed in Binibeca several times. This is by far the best villa we've stayed in on the island. A great location - at the end of a very quiet cul de sac within 2 mins of the beach (by car) and a 10 min walk.. Beautifully clean, finished to a high standard in keeping with the traditional style but to English standards and with a modern feel throughout. The pool was amazing - again wonderfully clean and huge in comparison to most villa pools in Menorca. Mandy the owner made the booking process stress free and the English management company contact Rachel was a delight and couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. Would highly recommend this beautiful home from home.

Fabulous Holiday Again

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this villa with my family for the 3rd time this year. It's a wonderful villa with modern furnishings and a lovely range cooker. We had lots of BBQ's on the patio by the pool and also had our breakfasts out there! My 4 year old daughter had a lovely time swimming in the pool and was delighted to find the toys we left there last year stored in the laundry room! We very much hope we'll be able to return next year!

The perfect family villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Villa 'Olivas Silvestres'. The children loved the pool and the beach at Binibeca was 2 minutes in the car or a 10 min walk and was perfect for children (ages 14,12,8 & 6) with fabulous sand and a shallow sheltered bay.

We felt like we had our own private Island at the end of October as although it was half term the beaches were empty and we loved it.

The Villa was spacious and immaculate and Rachael the house keeper was very welcoming and helpful with where to go and what to see.

The villa is at the end of a peaceful lane and over looks fields to the rear and views down the hill to the sea from the roof terrace.

I would highly recommend it.
