About Richard Wilkinson

Hi, We are Patty & Richard Wilkinson and have owned Villa Tranquilo for several years. Patty is a Project Officer for Age Concern and Richard owns an Electronics Design Company. We have a son, Daniel, in his final year at University studying Business Management.

We live in a 1720's cottage in the UK which we have spent many years renovating and we share our home with 3 Burmese cats.

We also spend as much time as we are able over on Menorca and love the peace and quiet of the villa and the laid back Menorcan life style. We spend time and money updating and improving the villa every year, the most recent work being a brand new kitchen, and also a power shower in the master bedroom ensuite. We endeavour to make the villa feel like a home from home and provide holiday reading and music CDs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Richard & Patti

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our holiday at Villa Tranquillo - it is truly stunning and had all the facilities and equipment we could ask for in a beautiful setting. The area of Son Parc was lovely and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday, including catching up with live Olympic action when the sun got a bit too hot!. In particular we enjoyed a boat trip around the north coast marine reserve with some fantiastic snorkelling.

Thank you very much, I hope we may visit again one day.

Best wishes

Jenny & family

Dear Richard and Patty

I just wanted to write to say how much we enjoyed staying in your villa in July. It's a lovely villa and in a beautiful location. We really enjoyed the quiet location but still within walking distance to bars, restaurants and a lovely beach. We especially loved the large pool and the shade surrounding it.

We've been to Menorca many times before but this year was our favourite visit

Kind regards

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A family holiday with 8 of us staying. There was plenty of room in side and out. The area was very quiet so ideal for a relaxing holiday.

The weather was nice and warm. The pool, beach and various play areas were great for kids.

We had to wait a couple of hours before we could get into the Villa but it gave us time to go to the shops and the kids to jump into the pool. Once inside it was very clean.

You need to keep all food swept up and put away otherwise somehow the ants (only small) would appear.

We enjoyed eating outside by the pool in the evening at the Villa and , bars/restaurants. Not overly expensive but neither a large menu at any of them most made us feel welcome.

I would return to the Villa again as everyone enjoyed the holiday and the island was very nice. Need a car if you want to explore we stayed locally and used the buses on 2 days out to Mahon and Fornell. There was a small water park at Fornell for the kids but also, a nice beach as well for the adults to visit (if not worried about hills).

Lovely private villa with all amenities required.

  • 4 of 5

There was a slight delay in the villa being ready which has been fed back to the owner but this did not spoil our stay at all.

The pool and surrounding area and amenities were perfect for us. Ample bedroom and bathroom space as well as kitchen and dining ares worked well.

Supermarkets close by for bar b as as well as beach down the road together with child friendly restaurants and bars.

We would return - was everything we wanted.

Fab spaceous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the area once before and was not disappointed in returning to the area, the villa had lots of space and very clean, you name it the villa had it, very impressed. The beach is a short walk from the villa and is stunning and very safe for children. Quiet location so no problems sleeping a fanatic holiday had by all.

Another Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A great holiday again! Best weather ever and I think this is our 5th stay.

We love the island and like to get out and about as we always have something fresh on our list we want to see but we've taken full advantage of your excellently maintained pool and it's been especially

nice to enjoy a meal and a glass of wine in your lovely peaceful garden when too lazy to walk just "down the strip" to a restaurant.

Our stay coincided again with the Jaleo in Mercadel when the famous black horse and riders were performing in the Square.

As usual villa and garden beautifully clean and tidy on arrival.

We are already looking forward to next year so thanks again for a great holiday.

The spectacular safe sandy beach of Son Parc is about a 13 minute walk away through the pines and sand dunes. Here you will find gently sloping access into shallow water, ideal for the very young and old alike. There is also the added peace of mind given by the presence of a lifeguard on duty. Sun beds, umbrellas, and canoes can all be hired during the high season also a small beach bar is open serving drinks and meals.


A car is recommended, but there is a bus service running in the summer months from Son Parc centre a short walk from the villa, calling at the delightful fishing village of Fornells, and the large towns of Mahon and Ciutadella. The airport at Mahon is approximately 35 minutes away by car/taxi.


The centre of Son Parc is 5 minute walk and Son Saura beach is a short 13 minute walk away. Fornells the nearest resort, is approximately a 15 minute drive away. The town of Mahon and the airport are about a 35 minute drive.

Further Details:

There are several super markets within Son Parc plus a variety of gift shops restaurants and bars to suit every taste and age group.For a greater variety of shops, a Bank and chemist etc visit Mercadal, approximately 20 minutes by car.A good selection of gift shops and restaurants can be found in Fornells a picturesque fishing village, a 15 minute drive away.Also water sports may be enjoyed here. Horse riding is also to be found nearby and bird watching is possible on the wetlands behind the beach at Son Parc and also at Es Grau. There is an abundance of wildlife on the island and the beautiful countryside of the interior is ideal for walkers. This villa has been issued with a tourist license from the Consell Insular De Menorca and fully complies with current Spanish Law, relating to quality and safety.
