About The Owner

My wife Hilary and I started coming to Menorca in the 1990´s and we bought a property in Son Parc in 1998 and later in 2000 we had a villa built. We have now lived in Menorca permanently since April 2009 in a country house near Mahon where we happily live with our 2 dogs, 1 cat and 2 horses. Our son and daughter still live in the UK but come over to Menorca as often as possible with their partners and children. Our son works for the family business and our daughter works in London.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose Alaior

The property is located in a convenient location only about 10 minutes drive from the airport and about 15 minutes from the capital Mahon. We bought this property as is it is an ideal holiday location with everything close by. The villa is in a quiet part of Cala n Porter but within a few minutes walk of all the bars, restaurants, beach and supermarket.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has all facilities close by that you require for a great holiday. Therefore it is not essential to have a hire car. The villa is also in one of the quietest parts of the resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know what a lovely week we had at your villa. The pool was fabulous and very welcoming as the temperatures did soar last week. Our children may have developed gills and fins as they were hardly ever out of it!

Very impressed with how well equipped it was and spotlessly clean. Also a quiet area which is just what we wanted but within easy walking distance to shops, bars etc. Would definitely book again. This was our first visit to Menorca and we loved everything about it. So will definitely return. Many thanks, best wishes, Nigel Anderson and family.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you for the use of the villa over the last two weeks. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay there. In fact where has we thought we would stay most days down on the beach we all seemed to prefer staying around the pool. It was sad to say goodbye to the place! We now have memories of a fantastic family holiday and hope one day to return and stay there again. Marc Rogers and family.

Lovely. Just lovely !

  • 5 of 5

I write this sat in the villa itself, what a lovely place. As previously stated it is a home away from home. Everything inside is good quality and sturdy, cool bags, scissors, even an iron and some games for the children.

The only thing I would say is air conditioning would be great as the night times are very sticky, but personally I preferred it without as a person can become reliant on it.

Pool is a perfect size, the pool man comes twice a week. Sun beds, plenty of, and chairs can be moved around wherever.

The bedrooms are ideal, a master with ensure, good sturdy beds and furniture, plenty of storage. The second bedroom a twin, which is nice and cosy, the third a single but I'm told had a pull out bed underneath it.

The walk to town takes about 10/15 mins so the villa is away from the busy centre. It is not far from the caves nightclub, however, we heard no noise.

If you sit on the patio in the morning there is a lovely view across the sea, only just, but you can see it !!

I think this is a super place for families, couples and friendship groups alike. A good base to see the rest of this beautiful island.

Davis is a lovely man, he met us on our arrival. Informed us of some things to do and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was spotless.

We didn't have a car, to be honest, the bus services are fine and cheap, the taxis are more expensive but equally as nice.

Well worth a visit, a place where you can chose what you do and when you do it ! Wonderful, we will be back !!

Great villa and location

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the villa for a week with 5 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We found the villa exactly as described on the webpage. It was a short walk to the shops, restaurants, bars and beach, which was perfect for us without a car. It was kitted out with everything that we could possibly need, and we were left with plenty of information on looking after ourselves and the property for the week. There was plenty of room and sunbeds around the pool for all of us to relax, and we knew that if we had any problems they would be sorted asap. We would definitely think about returning to the villa if we were to revisit Menorca. Thank you for our lovely stay!

Ticks all the Boxes

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week with four friends and we couldn't fault it. It was home from home for us, and we really couldn't think of anything that wasn't provided. A cool box for beach trips - very useful, lilos for the pool, a good selection of books, plenty of cutlery/crockery etc., a BBQ, 2 hairdryers, a corkscrew!!! Also, the place was immaculately clean on arrival. And the pool is cleaned twice weekly by Sean. It is well placed, about 10 mins walk from the centre, and 10 mins walk the other way to the Cova d’en Xoroi (Bar/Nightclub in a cave) - Well worth a visit. We met David the owner when he came to fix the outside light and he recommended some places to visit on the Island. We hired a car for a couple of days which, I might add, is worth doing as the island is only about 35 miles at its longest, so everywhere is accessible in a short space of time. So, all in all, it's a yes from me.

The beautiful beach of Cala'n Porter is about 10 minutes walk away and can be accessed by a set of steps (not for the faint hearted) or by the beach road which will take another 10 minutes. There is a resort bus that will take you up and down for a small charge. There is a large car park and beach bars and shops. The beach is very safe and clean with life guards on duty from 10am, the water slopes out and is ideal for snorkeling. Sun beds, parasols and pedaloes can be hired.


Mahon is the nearest airport, this is about 10 minutes away. You could be in the pool within an hour or two of landing. Car hire is recommended but not essential, Menorca is a very beautiful island and is there to be explored, if not you have everything you could want in Calan Porter itself.


Mahon is the capital and can be reached in about 15 mins by car, there is a bus service a few times a day. Ciutuadella at the other end of the island can be reached in about 45 minutes.

Further Details:

Cala'n Porter is full of restaurants and bars offering a wide range of food and evening entertainment. The fun house offers bouncy castles a ball pit and games console to keep the kids happy while you have a drink or two. A resort train will take you down to the beach. There is a visit the harbour of Mahon. The harbour is the 2nd deepest in the world, 2nd only to Pearl Harbour. The port is home to the gin factory where you can sample lots of spirits and take home a bottle of gin. There are plenty of shops, with a market twice a week. There are two water parks on the island about 45 minutes away. Monte Toro the highest mountain in Menorca can be reached by car and offers stunning views of the whole island on a clear day. Fornells a beautiful fishing village where the king of Spain comes to eat lobster & is well worth a visit and can be reached in about 25 mins.
