About jackie marshall

My parents moved out to Menorca in the 70s and spent 25 happy years there. I have owned the villa for 17 years and visit 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 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 the 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. Menorca retains its unspoilt beauty throughout the decades by the careful and thoughtful control of the amount of new building and maintaining as much as possible of its beautiful green landscape, quaint stone walls and the little farm houses and buildings which have survived, relatively unchanged for centuries. Menorca is truly unique in its culture, breath-taking beauty and the friendliness of its people. This is why I would always say if you want a glorious, unforgettable holiday, go to Menorca, where your family can enjoy the peace and tranquillity together. Be assured - you will want to come back and visit again.....!

Why jackie marshall chose Alaior

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. Staying away on holiday you often need or wish for internet access - for various reasons and I am pleased to report that as from May 2017, Villa Christine now has FREE WIFI (included in the rental price) for guests staying there.

What makes this villa unique

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, hairdresser, bank and a 24-hour English-speaking Doctor, etc, are easily accessible when needed. Another advantage is that the journey by car from the airport is only 15 minutes - it's a really easy and straightforward route - literally out of the Airport, turn left the roundabout with the triangle monument on it, carry on driving through the little town of Sant Climent, over 3 roundabouts and you're there!

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

As described, the property is a Spanish style. If you are looking for a modern property, then this is not for you. For us, it was we were looking for.

There is lots of outside space, we did not use the barbeque, as there was only the two of use, but it looked to be of a good size.

The pool is definitely, the outstanding feature, and I think you would have to far to beat it. As it's quite a trek to the beach, with access via either a steep hill, or long flight is steps we only went twice, as it was not necessary.

There is a good selection of restaurants, and I would really recommend Last Samoa, very good value for money.

If we go back to Menorca, this will be the first place we will look at booking.

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.
