About the property

Apartment/Villa in Cala'n Bosch, Menorca, Balearic Islands - Quiet Residential Location, Set in Lovely Gardens, Close to the Sea and all Amenities

The covered patio to the front is ideal for relaxing and eating at any time of the day and many people's favourite feature - the roof terrace, is perfect for sunbathing or watching the sunset over the ocean. Just a short walk to the sea, several supermarkets, bars and restaurants and a pool for public use. The large, gently shelving beach at Cala’n Bosch has soft sand and clear turquoise water, a little further on is the longer Son Xoriguer beach where there are water sports available. At the centre of Cala’n Bosch is the marina, surrounded by bars and restaurants, which is full of life at night. The historic town of Ciutadella is very close (about 10 minutes drive) and has many shops, market stalls, cafés set around some quiet and some bustling squares, a picturesque port lined with restaurants, and clubs that are open into the early hours.

About Karen Thorn

My name is Karen and I live in Kent. I work full time in the West End for a property company. I have two grown-up daughters, the youngest of who has three daughters aged 9, 4 and 1.

Karen Thorn purchased this house in 2006

Why Karen Thorn chose Cap d'Artrutx

I had intended to live in Menorca a few years ago, but missed my family, friends and the bustle of London too much so decided to move back to the UK and return to work with my previous company. Casa Géminis is where I lived during that time.

What makes this house unique

Casa Géminis is in a tranquil spot surrounded by well kept gardens. It's close enough to Cala'n Bosch for the beaches, bars and restaurants and the marina, yet far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. One of the best features is the flat roof of the house which has lovely views across the Med' to Mallorca, and is ideal for sunbathing, watching the sunset or just sitting with a book and/or a G&T. Over the last 7 years I'm happy to say that my family and many other people have enjoyed their holidays and their stay in my simple but well equipped little villa.

Menorca is a unique place. Very safe and wonderful for couples and families alike. It is not a place for hen or stag parties and tour companies actively discourage younger people from coming here.

There are plenty of places to explore on the island and lovely coastal walks. Easy to avoid the crowds if you want peace and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Menorca. Casa Geminis was just perfect for us. The roof terrace was great place to sit with a bottle of wine in the evening and is made for a watching the sun set. Joe & Jane

Great holiday. Very friendly complex. We have enjoyed relaxing on the roof terrace, been grateful for the air-conditioning on hot days. Sarah and Sue (Lincoln).

A beautiful villa set in a tranquil and peaceful location. Have enjoyed star gazing on the roof. Everyone is really friendly here! We'd definitely come again. Maralyn and family (Horley).

Had a wonderful time here. Absolutely great and don't want to leave! Annie and George.

The area is so nice and tranquil. Really lovely family feel to the place. Danielle (Herts).

Lage und Aussenanlage gut , Verhältnisse im Haus verbesserungsbedürtig

  • 3 of 5

Zunächst gut war anfänglich die direkte Information mit der Vermieterin, was Anreise, Anfahrtsbeschreibung, Zugang zum Haus etc. betraf.

Die Gesamtanlage machte einen durchaus gepflegten Eindruck, im Haus selbt waren wir nicht zufrieden, hier gibt es deutlich Verbesserungsbedarf. Nachdem wir gesehen haben, dass das Haus zum Verkauf angeboten wird, die Eigentümerin in England wohnt und das Haus einem Vor Ort Reinigungsservice überlässt, war uns klar, das nicht mehr viel in die Inneneinrichtung investiert wird.

Deutlich bemängeln müssen wir die Ducheinrichtung (kalt warm Wasser im Wechsel), schrecklicher Duschvorhang, Radio und TV funktionierten nicht, die Kücheneneinrichtung , sprich Gechirr, Besteck Gläser etc. entsprachen nicht unseren Vorstellungen,. Das gemeinsame Bett im Schlafraum war für zwei Personen nicht zu benutzen, meine Frau und ich haben uns dann für getrente Betten entschieden. Die Matratze im Bett meiner Frau war gefühlt 30 Jahre alt. Die Dachterasse lud nicht wirklich zum Aufenthalt ein. Fazit von uns:

Eine Ferienimmobilie wird nur noch gemietet, wenn der Vermiter vor Ort wohnt und im Zugriff ist, falls wir Änderungswünsche haben.

Nichts desto Trotz habe wir eine erlebnisreiche Woche erlebt, Menorca hat uns gut gefallen,

trotz der geschilderten Einschränkungen war unser Urlaub soweit in Ordnung.

Special interest holidays:

Sailing courses/yacht charter/day sails - Menorca Sailing are based in Mahon and offer RYA courses or charters. For the very best possible rates please let us know what you are looking for and we can put you in contact with them.

SCUBA diving & instruction with Blue Water Scuba who are based very near.


It is a 15/20 minute walk into Cala'n Bosch or a 5 minute drive. A regular and reliable bus service runs into Cala'n Bosch and Son Xoriguer. Cala Blanca also only 10 minutes drive away.


Mahon airport is around 45 minutes drive away but do leave extra time to get back to the airport at busy times, especially Fridays. Both Mahon and Ciutadella have ferry ports where services run to Palma, Ibiza, Valencia and Barcelona. The island’s bus network is very efficient and by using them you can travel to all the places of interest on the island. If you require any advice on flights from the UK we will be happy to assist if we can.


Cap d’Artrutx and Cala’n Bosch are on the south west tip of Menorca. 10 minutes drive from Ciutadella and 45 minutes from Mahon. A car is advisable but there are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance and the bus service into Ciutadella and to other resorts is very efficient and comfortable. As rough estimate, the cost of a taxi from the airport is approximately 60 euros (one way).

Further Details:

You are never more than an hours drive from anywhere on the island and there is only one main road running the breadth of the island, so finding your way around is very easy. Car hire is recommended as it will enable you not only to see all the wonderful sights and variations of the north and south of the island, but also to go to the unspoilt beaches which are away from the tourist areas. The nearest of these are the two beaches at Son Saura, about 20 minutes drive away and well worth getting the car dusty for! Nature lovers and walkers will find the 45 minute drive to Es Grau well worth the trip. Menorca has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, as a result a great deal of effort is made to help protect the environment. Within a few minutes of Géminis is Son Olivaret Marina, for a short walk or a longer ramble all the way to Cala Blanca. The northern coast of the island has some breathtaking views, the south has the most beautiful beaches. Menorca also has a large number of prehistoric sites if that is your area of interest. It is also very proud of its many lighthouses. All in all Menorca provides the perfect backdrop for your holiday, however you prefer to spend it. Safe and friendly, it is ideal for families and couples, for trying sporting activities, nature rambles, gazing at the power of the ocean, joining in the many island fiestas or simply laying around on a beautiful beach, relaxing with your favourite chilled drink and doing absolutely nothing!
