About the Owner

My parents moved out to Menorca in the 70s and spent 25 blissfully happy years there. I have owned the villa for 16 years now and go there as often as I can. My whole family adore it too and we have enjoyed some wonderful holidays there together with both children and grandchildren. I love the entire Spanish way of life, the language, the food, the people and the culture and I think the old traditional Spanish-style houses, with their terracotta tiling, beautiful dark wood doors and beams and cool whitewashed walls with high ceilings are enchanting. Because of this I have tried to retain my villa's characteristics and to keep its relaxed atmosphere, making just a few modernisations for extra comfort. My dream is to be able to spend a much larger part of my life in Menorca when I retire.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Booking with the owner Jackie (owner) was easy and efficient, she answered all of my questions and the transaction was stress free.

We had a great holiday, the villa is as described - "Older Style Spanish Villa".

The location could not have been better, we were travelling with young children so location to the airport, beach, restaurant and shops was a priority. No need to have a car unless you want to really investigate Menorca, there is a bus service to Mahon were you can get to many different places.

When we arrived the villa was clean and ready for us.

We had everything we needed in the villa even some pool/beach toys -The pool was fantastic, cleaned every other day, shallow end with steps were our granddaughter spent most of her holiday!

Towels and sheets were changed after a week, the people who look after the villa are friendly and happy to have a chat.

A bit more hanging space in the master bedroom would have been helpful, but there was plenty in the other 2 bedrooms.

From the Owner

This is a pretty, traditional Spanish villa, but with a few modern additions, ie, powerful showers, a large pool and lots of terrace area, it also has off-road parking for 3 cars. If you are looking for UK-style luxury, it comes at a price and , this is not the place for you but .... if you are looking for comfortable accommodation, great location (bus stop into Mahon just across the road), main resort and beach easily walkable and sheer value for money, then look no further. We are flexible on arrival days and departures and try our hardest to accommodate guests, as we know from experience that many flights are much cheaper mid-week. We also try to allow for early arrivals and late departures if at all possible.

Activity and Interests


Within easy reach of beach. 15 mins walk to beautiful bay. The road from the resort centre slopes down to the beach and there are steep steps back up to resort, but the breathtaking view of the whole bay from the top is a must!


There is a bus stop 50 metres from the villa. The bus runs every hour (during the summer) into Mahon Bus Station, from where you can get a bus to most of the island. The airport of Mahon is around 15 minutes' straightforward journey by car. Car hire not essential if you just wish to chill out by the pool or on Calan Porter beach - the resort has most amenities. Otherwise, hire a car and explore this little island and its dozens of beautiful beaches and unspoilt countryside!


Sant Climent - lovely little spanish village - 7 minutes drive. Fantastic jazz nights held at the "Casino" - spanish bar/ restaurant on the main street of Sant Climent.

Airport - 15 minutes drive.

Alaior - typical traditional spanish town - 20 mins' drive.

Ciutadella - second largest town at other end of island - 1 hour's drive

Canutells - lovely bay with cafe on the cliff overlooking it - 12 mins

Poligono - industrial estate with large supermarkets - 15 mins

Mahon - & the Port - 20 mins

Further Details:

Within easy reach of resort centre with all amenities. Many bars, restaurants serving all types of food, cafes, cocktail bar, supermarkets, night club, car hire, bureaux de change, The most famous night club on the Island "The Caves" is perched on the end of the cliffs at Cala En Porter; disco there 'til 5 am, foam parties, etc, or for those who prefer a more sedate pace of life, visit and have a coffee during the day and admire the spectacular view from the cliff over the ocean. Visit friendly owners Manoli and Eduardo at the long established "Aloha" cocktail bar with its huge range of exotic cocktails and live entertainment, tribute bands, etc. There is also a hairdresser and pharmacy in the centre of the resort, plus Red Cross centre, bus stop, taxi rank.

From the Owner

Complete privacy - the villa has a large, secluded garden and pool area and, being away from the main hub of the resort, is peaceful, with a tranquil atmosphere. Having said that, the distance to the resort centre and Calan Porter's gorgeous bay is literally two minutes away by car - 10 minutes' walk (or 15 minutes to the beach) , so that bars, restaurants, supermarkets, etc, are easily accessible when needed. Another advantage is that the travelling time by car from the airport is only 15 minutes - it's a really easy and straightforward route.
