About Elizabeth

I first visited Menorca in 1984 and loved the beaches and easy atmosphere. Everything was within easy reach and the towns of Mahon and Cuitadella are interesting and beautiful. The Port of Mahon has a good night life.

There are water sports available, excursions, horse riding, safari treks across country, organised walks, fiestas and events.

Elizabeth purchased this villa in 2002

Why Elizabeth chose Minorca (Menorca)

Calan Porter has many aspects.

It has a good, small and friendly beach with amenities for hiring pedalos, canoes, sun beds and umbrellas as well as soft sand a few bars and restaurants.

There are lovely walks all around Cala en Porter as part of the Cami de Cavalls, the old route around the island.

There are wonderful views and a wonderful sunset, facing west. The famous Cavos de Xoroi are situated in the rock face over looking the ocean, creating an internationally famous beauty spot and night club.

There is a community here with Town Hall, medical centre, post office, pharmacy and shops.

Many activities are organized for locals and visitors by the local authorities.

There is a fiesta with many locals taking part and creating a special event on the beach and around the town.

What makes this villa unique

The main benefit is privacy.

The villa is situated to benefit the facilities of the town & the surrounding countryside but secluded and private with mature trees and flowering shrubs as well as a variety of fruit trees surrounding its sunny terraces.

The villa is comfortable and is tastefully furnished with a farmhouse feel. The main area is open plan and the main doors open fully to overlook the pool and garden.

The outside space is pretty and provides a variety of areas for quiet times and a large dining area for gatherings.

There is a wood burning stove should it be needed for early and out of season bookings.

We provide beach towels to alleviate luggage weight.

It is approximately a 10 minute walk to the beach and centre.

Cala en Porter is not far from the airport and to the main town of Mahon with bus services throughout the year to the other centres on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So private and relaxing!

Calan Porter was perfect for our teenage family. We could enjoy ourselves and relax in a restaurant knowing that our daughters were only a stones throw away down the road.

Thank you we enjoyed your garden and your private, homely villa.

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Beautifull villa, so private & pretty with mature garden and resident tortoises, who were always hungry. Two bedrooms have king-size beds ( we didn't need the 3rd bedroom which has twin beds) and I slept better than I do at home, so comfortable. Liz (The owner) greeted us and couldn't be more helpful, she had left us a welcome package to get us started which was fantastic, including water, T.bags, coffee, beer & wine. The Villa has its own pool, completely private and is just a short walk to the Town centre (5mins). The Villa has everything you could for a self catering holiday, including washing machine and dishwasher. I would highly recommend this villa.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to this beautiful villa. The villa itself is spotlessly clean, and has everything you need. Air con was an added bonus given the 36c temperatures. Outside, the pool area is fantastic and very well maintained. Plenty of sun and shade so suited everyone. We will be back!

The perfect get away, in a stunning villa/gardens.

  • 5 of 5

This villa has everything you could possibly want, from a extremely well equipped and spacious interior, to a beautiful, relaxing garden. The welcome pack was very much appreciated, as we arrived in the evening.

A short walk to the beach, bars, restaurants and shops, not necessary to hire a car.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Elizabeth for a wonderfully relaxing holiday, our first experience of renting a villa and will certainly be returning. I would highly recommend this villa to all, families, couples or those that just want to relax.

Thankyou Elizabeth

Best wishes

Caron and family.

Lovely Private Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is lovely - even nicer than the photographs. It is a private haven, somewhere where you can enjoy time together in peace. The villa itself is perfect - clean, spacious & well-equipped. The location of the pool is spot on, as you can see whoever's in it whilst you sit in the lounge area, through the double doors. The outside space is really useful, especially the shaded area with the square wooden table. All-in-all, highly recommendable - so much so, we've booked again to go next summer. Thank you Liz for a wonderful stay. Sally

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

If activities are required information can be provided on request. Horse riding, cycle hire, diving, wind surfing, kayaking,canoeing, safari style excursions, painting, etc.

The Cami de Cavalls , route around the island comes through Cala en Porter. You can walk around the whole island.

Coast/Beach:

Calan Porter beach is a 10 minute walk away. It is set in a pretty gorge and has a road leading down to it.

If you hire a car you are in an ideal position to visit all the other 120 beaches, some a little more commercial and others totally natural without even a bar. Also there are a variety of sandy and rocky beaches for snorkeling and diving.

Travel:

Mahon airport is a 15 minute drive away. The port of Mahon is approximately a half an hour drive and is well worth visiting for regattas and boat watching as well as the variety of shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, live music and the Casino. Car hire is recommended for traveling around as taxis can become expensive and the bus service finishes early.

Distances:

The nearest village to Cala en Porter is San Climente a working, typical Menorcan village with a good supermarket, shops, bars, cafes, restaurants and jazz club every Tuesday. Mahon city is a 20 minute drive away with markets every Tuesday and Saturday and of course it's famous harbour, the 2nd deepest, natural harbour in the world.

Another city nearby is Alaior, a Medieval city sitting on a hill with beautiful architecture and cathedral. Between Cala en Porter and Alaoir are stone age sites.

Further Details:

Cala en Porter is a tourist resort with a town centre and square. There is a medical centre, pharmacy, shops and 4 supermarkets, who provide free delivery. There are many restaurants and bars with a variety of themes for live music and entertainment. At the very end of Calan Porter are the famous caves -Cavos D'en Xoroi, which in the day is a beauty spot to visit and have a drink and from 11.30 in the evening a famous night club.

Also Cala en Porter is part of the Cami de Cavalls route around the island, the old, horse route, which has been recently developed to maintain the history and for keen walkers and lovers of nature.
